Sorry no joke here.
Being in the city center has lots of advantages, with the ease of walking to restaurants and many of the tourist sites. Initially, we were excited to be located above the activity of the main old town tourist thoroughfare right next to a landmark tower in Bratislava. But the joy didn’t last through the night.
We are not sure of how many verses of “Knock, Knock, Knocking on Heavens Door” we heard in a drunken Slovakian accent, but it seemed like all night. Maybe a dozen or two locals trying to be Bob Dylan. But one thing we were sure about is that it was 3 a.m.
Our first non-airbnb experience was this booking through Expedia and one we hadn’t paid for in advance. The “apartment” seemed new, smartly designed with one of the most efficient uses of space we have seen and definitely an all modern European design. The “boutique” style might fetch $300 in the US, without a kitchen, but it was only 69 euros for the one night stay.
