    Basic Pension in central Bratislava

    by

    We came to Bratislava without a hotel reservation, which is not recommended for a place that is popular with conventions. We must have tried 12 hotels and pensions and mostly all were full. Luckily, we found one night available at the Gremium Penzion. A very basic place. Mostly clean, but very dated. The shower is located directly in the room. The toilet is located in a small closet, which can be a challenge to get in and close the door, since the closet is triangular. There are five rooms available, which are above a bar/restaurant. Can get a little noisy at night, but it usually tapers off around 1 or 2 am. One good thing about this pension is the location. Right in the middle of everything, but i don't think it was worth the price. We paid around $50 usd a night.

    Besides hostels, it's not easy to find affordable lodging. Next time, i would book some other place early.

    Directions: Located on a small one way street heading into the old city, by the Slovak National Theater.

  • A Nice Place to Stay

    by

    I stayed for 6 nights, well 5 really and the staffis very nice. The prices are low. Maybe I payed around 25-30USD per night. This place is on the third floor of a bar/restaurant. It is within walking distance off all the major tourist stuff. Right accross the street from a sushi bar and clothing shop and on the same street as a McDonalds, two bars and the national theatre. 5 minute walk to #1 tram line and 5 minutes from Tesco, La Verna, Dubliner, and the square. 10 minute walk to US embassy. This place is highly recommended. I stayed by myself in the single room. This is room 3. The only downsaide,well not for me, is that if you like to sleep, it can be a little noisy. The bar/restaurant closes at 12. This isn't a problem for me though.

    Unique Quality: Great staff, there is a money exchange with good rates, pretty women, and a bar is 20 feet from your room. what else could one possibly want? There is a big screen TV that can be seen from both levels and Eurosport is on all the time. There is also a sports bookie called Nike there for thoseof you that want to place bets. The food is good. It is slightly more expensive than other places, but still cheaper than the U.S.

    Directions: Centrum. Near Namestie SNP and the #1 tram line. Hviezdoslavovo street becomes Gorkeho going north.

Accommodation in Bratislava

by elenasc

My husband and I will be in Bratislava for 3 days in May. I am looking for somewhere to stay, preferably an apartment, in a price range of 100 to 140 Euros a night, something near the centre and not too noisy. Any suggestions? Thanks so much.

Hi Elena, I have not stayed in these apartments, I can recommend them because they are near the centre and not in too noisy places.

I found them here:

Thank you so much for your recommendations. We have since booked the Apartment Residences and they are on you list, so good to know they are both central and not noisy. Will report back after the trip.

Travel Tips for Bratislava

Money!

by Ewingjr98

The Slovak Koruna is the unit of currency in Slovakia. Even though Slovakia joined the European Union on 1 May 2004, its currency will not convert to the Euro until it meets all of the criteria for EU membership such as deregulated markets and independence of banks. Once these criteria are met, Slovakia and the other new members must adopt the Euro, unlike the UK and Ireland which exercised their option not to use the Euro.

Slovakia is less expensive than western Europe, and also cheaper than its Czech neighbor to the north. ATMs are common in the big cities, and even small border towns have money exchanges which are common. Most places in Bratislava accepted credit cards with the exception of the hotel finder service we used. We used major credit cards at most restaurants, book stores, train stations and other locations.

During my trip, the exchange rate was 100 SKK = 3.14 USD. The train to Vienna cost 294 SKK each, a very cheap breakfast was only 40 SKK, and a relatively expensive cappuccino was 45 SKK. Our hotel was 1600 SKK per night and an average main course was between 100 and 300 SKK at most restaurants.

The old town hall in the main...

by europebn

The old town hall in the main square I don't know if they still do this, but at night they showed the millenium countdown over again. The laser flashes and twirls around and counts down. A bit disappointing but worth checking out.

Rooftop

by micas_pt

Bratislava's city centre is full of beautiful houses, most of them very well kept. They come from different epochs and reflect different styles and architecture. If you keep looking up you will always see some nice tower: the yellow Old Town Hall tower, the green top of St Michael's Gate or the green tower of St Martin's Cathedral. Anyway i found this extremely helpful to find my way around, as i usually get lost even holding a map in my hands. :-)

The narrowest little street

by gosiaPL

Bastova is the narrowest street in town, and in the past it was called the Executioner Way! It's a nice walk to further find your way to Kapitulska St. and the Cathedral. Start at the Michalska Gate where Bastova St. shoots off to the left as you're facing the Gate.

Amazon with the Jar

by Skipka

Two of the fountains in Bratislava built in the sixteenth century rank among typical Renaissance fountaines. One is the Maximillian Fountain, known also as Rolland's Fountain on the Main Square (Hlavne namestie), which was built in 1572, and the other was built at neighboring square in front of the Franciscan Monastery - originally the Fish Market - already in 1549. According to a text from the sixteenth century, the Fish Market had installations that brought water from springs on hillsides of vineyards above Bratislava to the square. The oldest written document includes references to a stone tank named Prunkasten. In 1561, a led water conduit feeding the tank was first mentioned. In 1592, a new tank made of pink marble was installed with a polygonal ground plan with pillars at its corners. A column on a plinth in the middle on carried a statue of a lion holding the city's emblem (this original statue is deposited at the Municipal Museum). The plinth was decorated with a twin-head Austrian eagle with a Old Hungarian emblem on its chest. A worn-down decorative part of the column was removed in the beginning of the nineteenth century, and in 1804 an Antique-style statue of a woman - An Amazon pouring water from a jar has been installed instead. The statue was made in the stonecutter workshop of the Feigler family. When the square was renovated in the eighties of the nineteenth century, the fountain was considered superfluous. It was removed and a park was set up in its place.

In May 1998, following a decision of the Bratislava Old Town City Hall, the fountain returned to its original location after almost 110 years.
