Cheap hotels in Hrad & West, Bratislava
Hrad & Around covers a significant chunk of Bratislava, from the area immediately around Bratislava's Castle to the long promenade along the Danube west of Starometská and continuing on into the stately hilly neighborhoods north and west of the castle. The area immediately around the castle is dotted with museums and twisting hillside alleys.
Like many massive European castles, Bratislava's Hrad has been fortified and rebuilt in a range of architectural styles. Surprisingly, the current castle, towering over the city, was rebuilt in the 1950s.
The district northwest of the Hrad is a pleasant, hilly area dotted with impressive Baroque and modernist villas. This area is home to plenty of embassies and diplomats' quarters. Some hotels listed in Hrad & Around are just outside of Staré Mesto, while others are quite a hike from the action. Read through each hotel review to get a finer sense of location.
