The hotel was a short walk from the old town and the castle and an 800m downhill walk from the main train station. The rooms were clean and modern and the hotel offered free internet access in the foyer. The breakfast wasn't bad, you could order waffles but the staff both in the breakfast area and at reception could be a little abrupt and unwilling to assist. Pretty much everything we asked for from reception they could not supply even though it was listed in the hotel information in the room as being available from housekeeping. Also, the breakfast staff don't bother getting you to sign for breakfast to be charged to the room but they add it to your bill anyway which I found odd and raised the possiblity of others charging breakfasts to your room. Overall, the hotel was not bad and in a good location.

... not want to be in Slovakia anymore and wanted to get away as quickly as I could. As soon as a job opening up back in Cary, I was going to be on the first plane back. Something happened though, that I could only describe as an act of God. Now, I am falling love with Slovakia and the people. I am sure though that if it were not for my amazing colleagues, I would still be on track to go home.
... After dropping our bags we went into the historic centre and found Bratislava is actually really lovely. Apparently it was a match to Prague in its pretty buildings and churches etc, but the varying histories under the Communists meant Prague was maintained as a pristine historic city while Bratislava was 'modernised', which for Communists meant building motorways through parts of the medieval city, ripping down walls and generally messing it ...
... that were often entirely different than the English names I had known.
The Vienna train station(s) was my Newman (insert Jerry Seinfeld imagery of clenched fist and teeth, muttering the words of his obnoxious postman neighbor, Newman, here). No matter how many times I tried to beat it (15 years ago), the Vienna train station always won.
My battle began in Zagreb and I was set to catch a 07:25 train (with two connections and three ...
... out so making choices is simpler) and within ten minutes we were heading back into Bratislava. Our next target was the 'blue church' which is situated out of the city centre in the opposite direction to Devin (east?) so we stayed on the bus a bit further. The stop after the New Bridge was a long way out and we thought that we had gone too far but a check of the map showed that we were just a few streets away.
This church is worth visiting. It's ...
