The 4 star Loft Hotel is located in the centre of Bratislava, within walking distance of the historic old town.
For our stay in Bratislava, we chose the quite new loft hotel. It is very conveniently located near the old town and is only about 900 meters away from the main railway station, where the airport bus stops. There is a car park for those arriving by car.
With 121 rooms the hotel is not exactly small, but you won’t get lost in it either. The hotel’s restaurant, Fabrika The Beer Pub, offers a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The hotel is not directly on the main road. So do not get discouraged when you turn into an old looking street. Only a few steps and then you are facing a very modern hotel comple.
We were kindly greeted by staff members and led to a very nice hotel lobby. The staff speaks Slovak and English.
With the elevator, activated with a room card, we went up to the second floor, room 202. The hallway leading to the rooms can also only be entered with a room card. We had opted for a comfort double room. The room was a good size, very nicely decorated and very clean. The price includes a mini-bar, which was replenished daily. In addition, there was a kettle for free tea and coffee in the room. The double bed was large and we slept well.
The Wi-Fi connection is always important for us. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. The reception in our room was impeccable. Also a very nice feature of the room was the spacious safe in which we not only stored our laptops, but also the cameras. The bathroom was very clean and the bathtub was the widest I have seen in normal hotel rooms so far.
We did not try the breakfast buffet. Coming in at 12, – € per person we gave it a miss. If you usually only have coffee and bread for breakfast, you can find that much cheaper in the Old Town. If you like long and extensive breakfast, you should consider the hotel offer, the buffet looked good. On the Saturday only we had a small breakfast in the hotel bar. For around 5 € we got coffee or tea, 2 croissants, butter, 2x jam and a small pastry piece.
The restaurant was always very well attended and the food seemed to be well received by the guests. Since we had always eaten out I cannot give an opinion on the cost effectiveness or quality of the restaurant. The hotel also has a number of meeting rooms that are well equipped for conferences and meetings. I felt very comfortable in the hotel and would certainly choose it again. The price-performance ratio was good.
