One of Bratislava's best

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 6, 2010

I have stayed at the Carlton several times in recent years, if I have managed to secure a good deal. The rack rates are currently around EUR 130 including breakfast, but various last minute places will have rooms for between EUR 60 and 75 depending on whether there is breakfast available. The decor shows slightly that it has been a few years since the hotel was refitted, however, the fittings are still a lot more solid and contemporary than the Park Inn that has the same owners, located only about 100m away.

The rooms were large, clean and well-appointed, with a good bathroom. The beds are always comfortable and I always sleep very well and the hotel tends to be very quiet in the night - quieter than its neighbour. There is an underground car park for EUR 33 per day, which is relatively good value and the location is outstanding, in the heart of Bratislava only about 100m from the Danube and very close to the arrivals pier of the Danube Twincityliner from Vienna.

Unique Quality: Central location and well-appointed rooms.

Not the Best SAS

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 14, 2010

The hotel is well situated in the centre of the city, however having stayed at several SAS hotels, this is not one of the best. The rooms (although they say recently refurbished) are pretty basic and not very stylish (unlike other SAS hotels). Staff are very good as is the breakfast served each morning. Again, if you're expecting SAS style - you'll be dissapointed.

Unique Quality: Good breakfast

Radisson SAS, or Radisson Blu Carlton after the name change, has a great location in the square in Bratislava. It's also close to the river Danube (Donau).

The hotel has 170 rooms decorated in typical Radisson SAS styles, with free Broadband including wireless Internet access, fitness room.

We are staying for one night, after driving from Vienna. The hotel looks amazing, like a palace from the outside. It is right in the middle of the old town, a very short walk from all the main sights - this is such an ideal location - it is diagonally opposite from the opera house and about 1 minute walk to the town square. It is summer whilst I write, so we were desperately grateful for the large airconditioned room!

Unique Quality: Whilst our room doesn't have a great view, it is roomy, new and air conditioned. The hotel has a large reception area with a separate concierge and check-in desk. They have a bar which is open to 1am. Breakfast looks like it will be impressive, more tomorrow when we've sampled it.

Directions: Park in the "Carlton" underground carpark.

This hotel is right next to the US embassy. It is a historic building converted to luxuriant standards. The service is everything that you should expect at the Radisson SAS. The breakfast was also very good. They have bacon and omlets, a nice reprieve from deli meats and bread. Expect to pay 50 euro for a day of parking...ouch. The beds are extremely comfortable and the shower is American style.
In front of the Hotel there is a written account of the hotel's history that begins in the 13th century. It was a small hotel with 22 rooms and 150 stables.

Unique Quality: Teddy Roosevelt stayed here.
Free wireless

Directions: Right now there is construction and it is difficult to find at night. There is a subterranian parking garage as you are heading toward the hotel, away from the danube. It is the hotel's garage and marked with 'Carlton'.

Almost luxury...

For accommodation, we struck it lucky by staying at the Carlton SAS Radisson Hotel on Hviedzdoslavovo namestie, right next to the Old Town. So plush was our room that, according to the corporate literature, it was only fluffy robes and an ironing board away from “business class”.

Having stayed – by choice - in our share of economy hotels over the years, we appreciated a touch of luxury, and the beauty of the tree-lined square, complete with cafes, bandstand, fountain…and, oh yes, a roped-off American embassy!

We usually use this hotel for its conference room fascilities but the accommodation is great too. It's one of the most expensive ones but definetly one of the top. Great location - opposite the national theater right in the old center, a minute's walk from the river bank.

Unique Quality: Do not miss the wonderful cafe just behind the reception. I especially recommend it after a night at the opera or concert in Reduta or the National Thater (both just across the road), dim lights, pleasant live piano music and a setting that reminds me of the old films and the Orient express.

Directions: Old town, city center

Luxurious hotel in premiere location

OK, this one is on the very expensive side but I was on a business trip so my company paid for it :-) Full-service hotel with all the amenities you may need, and in a premiere location in Hviezdoslavovo Namestie. It's one of the oldest hotels (if not the oldest), now fully refurbished and luxurious.

The Radisson SAS Carlton is in a very safe area, there are restaurants, cafes, bars and cake shops nearby.
The Carlton is close to Bratislava's historical attractions which are within walking distance.

Unique Quality: 1) The staff who are friendly, helpful and genuinely proud of the hotel and the city.

2) The hotel is located within the heart of the old town of Bratislava.

3) The hotel facilities and rooms were of a high quality.

4) You get what you pay for.

5) The Hotel has a sauna.

Directions: Hviezdoslavovo Namestie

Radisson SAS is located in a beautiful place just in the centre of the city. No, I did not stay here this time, but I will surely would like to stay here in my next visit.

...... THEN YOU SHOULD STAY AT THE RADISSON SAS CARTLON HOTEL .... This is found exactly in the centre very close to the old town and it is situated in a square that is also close to the shops, restaurants and the pubs and bars.

Unique Quality: I haven't stayed here myself but got the brouchure ... who knows maybe for next time I can spoil myself over here : ) and we met a lovely person ... Dolly from America was staying here and she loved it ... With regards to characteristics I must say it has all the 5 star expectations.

Good Views and very Central location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

Got a bargain through Expedia and stayed here just for one night in June 2005. They gave us a room at the top of the building but as it was only for one night so we didn't mind.
The hotel enjoys a very central location. The room we had overlooked the square and was quite large. A lovely large and clean bathroom too.

Unique Quality: It was OK as hotels go.

Directions: In the city centre.

We stayed one night here on our way to Budapest and the room was everything you would expect from a quality large chain hotel, though not very big.

The position of the hotel is very central for the sites and the building is top class. Staff were also very friendly and helpful.

Directions: In the same square as the National Opera

Top choice for the big spenders

by written on May 24, 2005

Yeah, right. Like I'd stay here. I looked at the place more as a tourist attraction than a realistic accommodation choice. The Hotel Carlton Bratislava was built in 1837 as the Inn at the Three Green Trees and is located in the heart of town in Hviezdoslavovo Square.

Unique Quality: If you want A/C, television, hair dryers, coffee makers and 24 hour room service, then this is the place for you.

Rates are as follows:

All weekends, 117 Euros (Single) 127 (Double)
January - March, 185 EUR, 195 EUR
April - June, 190 EUR, 200 EUR
July - August, 155 EUR, 160 EUR
September - December, 190 EUR, 200 EUR

Great hotel in centre of town

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 4, 2005

We had an excellent stay in this hotel. The staff were very helpful and obliging, even when we behaved like idiots and managed to check ourselves into the wrong room! I know that another VT member had a bad experience here, but we had a great one! The hotel has a perfect location in the centre of town within walking distance of everything that you want. This is a great hotel to treat yourself to and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Unique Quality: The mirror bar in the hotel was a lovely piano bar that seemed to be very popular. Fitness centre with sauna + steam room included in your room price.
