Any hotel that supplies free bags of Lays in the bedrooms gets my vote any time!!! As a snack junkie it was the best welcome gift I could possibly think of (especially the yellow bag)!
Although not located in the centre of town, the Loft hotel is a popular choice for travelers to Bratislava. It suited us perfectly as its situated about half way between the railway station and the old town – about 10-12 minute walk either way.
Our room was ready when we arrived about 12.30pm and the staff at reception were friendly and helpful over our few days. There were plenty of umbrellas available in the foyer to keep the worst of the snow away. Due to poor conditions when we were leaving, we abandoned our plan at the last minute to walk back to the railway station to catch the airport bus – a taxi was ordered at reception and arrived within minutes (€23 to airport).
I don’t know if Bratislava is on your travel list but if so then its worth checking out this hotel.
The standard rooms are a good size with kettle, tea and coffee and a free minibar containing water, cola and beer – and Lays of course!
There are several options for breakfast:
If you’re watching the budget then you can buy a few bits in town and make coffee or tea in your room – we picked up a few pain au chocolat and yoghurts in Billa supermarket on our way back the first night and had breakfast in bed the following morning.
You can head down town for your full English breakfast.
For €5.90 you can have a small breakfast in the hotel.
You can splash out on the €14 breakfast in the restaurant – fab! Its very popular and worth experiencing at least once during your visit.
Bratislava rolls filled with poppy seeds or walnuts!
The in house restaurant – Fabrika – is one of the most popular places in Bratislava so you’re not cheating by eating at the hotel! The beer pub has its own brewery and my choice cost €2.30 per half litre. There’s a wide range on the menu – steaks, burgers, salads, fish – and generous portions.
I opted for duck beasts with red cabbage puree and homemade croquettes (€17.90).
The pork steak – served with sweet potato puree and peas with pomegranate seeds – costs just €13.90
