From the Bratislava main rail station ,leave by front down a scruffy road ,cross road by crossing turn right then left down main street for about 300m . The hotel is in a side street on left. The Abba hotel is a smart new building, 4 star rating, about 100 euro for single bed and breakfast. My room was large, en suite, large slim tv on wall with many channels. My room overlooked a park.ps Depending which side of road down from the station you walk, there is also a pedestrain bridge over the road.
Unique Quality: New.
Directions: Towards city centre in side street of Stefanikova the main road. Walk from rail station about 10 minutes,about same time to centre of town.
This is a very new hotel, opened in 2011 in what looked to me like a brand-new building. Abba is, I believe, a Spanish-owned hotel chain.
The hotel's location suited me very well indeed, being roughly halfway between Bratislava's old town centre and the main railway station (where airport buses arrive/leave and from where I intended to make several day trips) and right next to the lovely grounds of Grassalkovich Palace (where the President lives) which are open to the pubic. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to station or old town centre from the hotel.
The building is set back from busy Stefanikova, with the majority of rooms overlooking leafy gardens at the back and sides, so traffic noise isn't really an issue.
Rooms are quite large, very clean and comfortable, with modern decor and wooden floors. My 'single' room was actually a double...two large single beds pushed together...and had a bathtub as well as shower, ample storage and hanging space, a safe, desk, small table and chair and tea/coffee making supplies (which were very welcome). Free wifi was efficient , hot water was always hot, room heating was also efficient (I imagine the air con is as well) and...most importantly...the windows open so you can get some 'real' air into the room.
There are two lifts and both smoking and non-smoking rooms. The smoking rooms are all on a separate floor, so no need to worry if you object to cigarette smoke: you won't smell it.
My room rate didn't include breakfast, which I understood to cost 12 euro. I treated myself one day: there was a good range of the usual hot and cold items available...bacon, scrambled and boiled eggs, cereals, yoghurts, rolls, cake and so on and so forth. Coffee comes from a machine (in various forms) but was perfectly ok, and juices and teas are also available. Having said all that, 12 euro is a bit pricey for breakfast. You could easily get something from a cafe for much less.
The hotel has a bar and an Italian restaurant (I didn't try either) and is plainly geared-up for business visitors (there were quite a few of those during my stay). Staff are young, pleasant and courteous with good English and...very useful if you have a late flight, as I did..it is possible to extend your checkout until 12, 2 or 6pm.
There is a flight of steps down to the entrance, with a stairlift for disabled access. Access within the hotel is very easy, with no steps.
The Abba is by no means the cheapest hotel in Bratislava, but if you want a clean, comfortable and convenient spot to stay then I can recommend it. I booked it through www.booking.com
Directions: From the station, keep to the right. Walk through the bus station area, keep to the right and cross over the concrete pedestrian bridge to walk straight down Stefanikova. Hotel is on the left.
