We booked this hotel as something slightly different, a hotel on the river, and was not disappointed. It has a great location, 10 mins walk to the Old Town and the new bridge that joins the city to the other side of the Danube. The rooms are small but clean and compact. Our room was on the land side and...

This is an amazing ship with art deco interior and excellent restaurant. Beneath the castle and parliament building, near the UFO Tower and just across the road from Bratislava City Centre. It had changed hands a few months before we stayed and did not reflect the poor reviews that had been left on here during its former owners' time.

Was on a stag do for a party of 10, food was cheap and drinks weren't too bad. Staff are friendly enough and were always on hand. The rooms were small but it is a boat!! Mattress was wafer thin with pillows being non existent but it did the job for us for 3 days...only 5 min walk into town...

Visited conscious of the negative reviews, but you know what? It was surprisingly good! Yes, the boat looks a little dated, but it's clean and somewhat fitting for the botel, so I don't know what people expect. Breakfast was okay, nothing to write home about, but served it's purpose. Staff were friendly and the biggest surprise were the rooms- Very...

Nice location of this hotel. I found promotion on booking.com and booked it. Room and bathroom were spacy and clean. Room is also equiped with fridge, TV and air condition. Tasty breakfast served 7.30 - 9:30. Price ok!

Went here expecting the worst on a stag do after only reading the terrible reviews in tripadvisor, but we were all nicely surprised. Was very warm, had to turn heating off most nights. Rooms are basic but unless you are planning to spend all your trip in your room they are fine. Bathroom was small and the floor does flood...

Having visited in the middle of winter don't believe any tosh reported on here that the rooms are cold! Absolute nonsense! Heating is from rads not air blown for a start! Rustic charm and the romance of the Danube make this a top place to stay for anybody. Further benefit, you are on the better side of town for the...

I am a world traveller of some 50 years so try to write clear and objective reviews. This 'Botel' is well situated just 10 or so mins walk to the Old City and say 5 mins from the coach to Vienna. It is also amongst the cheapest places to stay in Bratislava and assuming you go other than the Winter...

The botel if enough good, the location is good, the breakfast was ok, but it was really cold in the room. I guess it's a good option to stay during the summer time, but in December it's not so comfortable.

Located on the Danube under the castle. It is approx 10 minutes from the old quarter and the UFO tower. The staff speak good English and are very helpful. The breakfast is a buffet self service of cereals, yogurt, cheese, breads, and salads. If you like a big cup of tea,take your own cup and tea bags. They do have...
