Housed in Hviezdoslav Square in the Slovakian capital’s historical quarter, the beautifully Radisson Blu Carlton Hotel, Bratislava reflects the city’s atmosphere with a blend of historical architecture and modern convenience. Hotel guests can easily walk to many city-center attractions, such as St. Martin’s Cathedral, and enjoy scenic strolls alongside the Danube River.

Getting there is easy, if you come by plane you can either choose the Bratislava airport or fly to Vienna and transfer by shuttle to Bratislava (approximate time is 45 – 50 minutes).
