is it about the location or hotel you have read bad feedback for?

I've been to Bratislava several times for a knees-up, and unfortunately that's all you can really do there, the Old Town is really nice but you can walk round it in half an hour and during the summer the pubs round there are taken over by staggies, it's a good atmosphere if you like that kind of thing. The "new" town is a stark reminder of the old Eastern Block: plain, grey, concrete tower blocks. Vienna is just an hour away on the train and costs €10 each way, if you don't want the extra expense of Viennese hotels then you can just commute to and fro which is not uncommon among tourists to Vienna. I don't know any hotels in Bratislava, I live in Vienna so just go for a boozy Saturday afternoon and come back. Budapest is a nice place and would recommend the tour while you're around as you can do it all by train and/or boat and the weather's expected to continue to be hot and sunny, apart from the odd thunderstorm at night.

I hope this helps.

Wobbud....interesting.
I was considering going there as well. Since my missus is not from the EU I wonder if she'd need a visa from both Slovakia and Austria. Anyone knows?

have you checked out tripadvisor.com that might help you? I've never thought about going there... so don't know much! But in a way you can make your holiday good as the people whose reviews you have read might not be cultured (their idea of a good holiday is sat by a pool) rather than sight seeing, or just experiencing the life of the city. Hope you have a good time! :)

If I had to choose I'd say Prague, everything is centralised and easy to get round, Vienna is really nice but more spread out, although public transport is cheap and very efficient, food and drink is not badly priced but hotels are extortionate, especially since the Euros as they haven't put their prices down as much as they were before...which was expected really. Budapest is very much like Vienna but there's not as much going on, it does have the Roman Spas though which are great for relaxation.

how would we get to prague from brataslava wobbud? is it far easy to get to ? perhaps a car hire ? :thumbsup:

You can get a train direct from Bratislava station, which is accessible by tram from the town or bus from the airport (both about 10 minutes) and takes 4 and a half hours direct. I'm not sure how much it would cost but from Vienna it's just under €50 so it shouldn't cost more than that, I don't know how much car hire would be or where you would hire a car from, the airport is just a waiting room and a luggage belt, I haven't seen any hire companies there.

I took flight to budapest and then took train to vienna. Didn't stay in budapest at all because read that it didn't have too much there. The budapest's train station is all that I can remember...it was boiling hot in there. That longgg queue was almost unbearable in that heat while lining up to buy a train ticket!!! For some reason, my passport was checked twice in 3 mins by 2 different people while on the train. It was weird...don't know whether it was a mistake or it was two customs officers from budapest and vienna respectively doing their job.

Vienna was pretty nice. Went to see one of those concert. Beware when if you buy a ticket from one of the salesperson on the street. The guy sold me a ticket saying its a good seat and I end up being on the 1st floor parallel to the musicians. There was absolutely no view at all unless you are sitting in the front row of that section and leaning forward to look down onto them. My seat was 5th row and I could see nothing and could only hear the music. Ended up sneaking to an empty 1st row seat in another section in order to see them playing.

I agree and I'd second the suggestion of 1. Prague 2. Vienna ( I haven't actually been to Vienna but hubby has twice and he agrees!!) 3. Budapest
