Great little hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 21, 2009

It's a novel idea to put a hotel on the Danube in an old steamship but the Botel Marina is a little gem of a hotel for a 1 or 2 night stopover. The rooms are small being the original cabins and they can get hot even with the antiquated air conditioning on full blast. The room I had was clean and comfortable with a shower room just big enough to swing a cat in. There is also an Indian restaurant on board and very good it was too. The bar doubles as a strip joint but is only open Thursday to Saturday. The staff were pleasant enough and I'd stop there again. Just 10 minutes walk along the banks of the Danube will take you to the heart of the old town just opposite the new bridge (Novy Most) so the hotel is handily placed for the sights.

Unique Quality: It's a boat in the city centre with an Indian restuarant! That's pretty unique.

Directions: Under the castle near the new bridge.

Luxury on the Danube

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 1, 2007

I was hesitant at first to stay on a boat on the river. Being from the US, areas along rivers are usually very seedy. Botel Marina in Bratislava is now my favorite hotel to stay at in all my European travels. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They helped me go over maps and make taxi and train reservations. The breakfast buffet is very complete and one of the best breakfasts I have had in Central Europe. The only drawback is it is quite a long distance from the nearest tram or bus stop. For people that have a hard time getting around I suggest arriving at the hotel by taxi. Highly recommended.

Unique Quality: On the river side of the boat there is a small patio. This is a wonderful place to contemplate where you are and enjoy the beauty of the Danube and Slovakia.

Botel Marina

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 26, 2006

I stayed on this Botel with 12 colleagues from work.
We booked directly with the Botel, who answered all our email queries promptly and in good english.

It is a 4 star hotel housed in a boat moored permanently on the banks of the river Danube.
Its a few minutes walk to the Novy Most (new bridge) and only a few more to the centre of the old town, so in my opinion it was in an excellent location and enabled us to walk to all sights.

The botel obviously has smallish rooms, as they are cabins but they had comfortable beds, good showers and were as we expected.

The botel has nice wood panelling throughouts its interior. the staff were polite, pleasant and helpful.
The botel has a nice upstairs bar and restaurant area and the meal we had at the restaurant was excellent.

The included breakfast was of great variety, english, continental and of a good standard.

All in all we had a great time at this hotel and would highly recommend it.
We paid 2950 skk per room per night.

Unique Quality: Its a Boat !

and has great views of the Danube and the Novy Most.

It is located below the castle hill.

A nice stay on the river

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 9, 2005

It's a very nice new 4 star hotel on the river. It's just beneath the Castle and Parliament. A very close distance from the old center. Prices are a bit high for the quality offered - 78 euro (incl. breakfast) for a double room with 2 separate beds. The athmosphere is very good - small but comfortable rooms, a nice place on the deck for breakfast, a very good bar, free Internet connection in the lobby and friendly personnel.

Unique Quality: The rooms have a nice view towards the river and the New Bridge. They have airconditionning but you can open the windows as well. And I haven't felt any rolling, so you don't bother about being seasick;)

Directions: Near the New Bridge and Hrada
