Travel Blogs from Bratislava
Arrived at Bratislava hl.st train station at noon from Budapest and walked 800m to our hotel, Crowne Plaza Bratislava.
Walked down Obchodna and got some lunch before walking down to the Tourist Information Centre for a city map and to check out some day trips from Bratislava.
Walked back to the hotel before going for a short walk …
Got up at 8am and and had breakfast before walking past the Grassalkovich Palace down to the main bus station where we caught the bus to Devin.
Walked form the bus stop to the castle and wandered the ruins including a climb to the top of the tower with the views across the Danube River into Austria. We also had a look through the small …
... little brains! It was really good though. My favorite part of lunch, however, was just talking with PT about life, culture, and our homes. He’s so easy to talk to I had to make sure I kept eating or I would have never finished!
After lunch, I got back to the office to continue working on files until M and I left for Fusion - a gathering of teenagers for singing, food, and devotion. I ...
... a quarter. It the returns to the scorer for another go. If no one scores after ten attempts they both have to drink a quarter and swap sides. The game is the first to three edges. If a hat trick is scored, then the loser must do a shot. This got us blind. We stayed until close then Yulia n Adam who didn't participate went to bed whilst the rest of us continued to party in the boys apartment upstairs. We cracked music, joked and told stories. It was a great ...
... a gorgeous pale blue church, that looks more like it would be at home in Barcelona among Gaudi’s works, than in an Eastern European capital. It was worth the stop and both of us mentioned its colour, architecture and charm might have boosted it to the top of our favourite churches list.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCrowne Plaza Bratislava
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.
