Kempinski Expands Into Bratislava

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

The Kempinski Hotel River Park Bratislava has a perfect location only minutes away from the Old Town and the ancient castle, just a stone throw from Bratislava and Vienna International Airports. The hotel is a dominant feature of the River Park complex which has turned the Danube riverside into a trendy promenade with many shops, bars and restaurants. It is close to the best of everything in the city – historical monuments, shopping, and streets pulsating with life – and there is the green tranquillity of the flood plain forest along the river, ideal for jogging or cycling.

Designed by the award-winning Dutch architect, Erick van Egeraat, the state-of-art L-shaped building is a unique combination of glass, metal and wood.

There is a choice of Superior, Deluxe, Executive Club, and Suite accommodations, crowned by the 450 sqm, 3-bedroom Presidential Suite with a large terrace whose wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows face onto Midtown and riverside. All rooms are beautifully furnished and feature a large marble bathroom, spacious seating and work area with full sized desk and king-sized bed. Additionally, all rooms are equipped with comprehensive facilities including free high speed Internet access. Many of the hotel’s 231 spacious guest rooms and suites housed on eight floors offer stunning views of famous Danube river and the city skyline.

One of the most unique features of the Kempinski Hotel River Park is definitely the rooftop ZION Spa and Fitness centre, offering 1,500 sqm of luxurious space overlooking the water and greenery on the other side of the Danube. The comprehensive spa menu offers fabulous services to fit any schedule, including unique Alpha Sphere – a combination of sound, light, and space providing an out-of-this-world relaxation experience.

A feast for the eyes and soul, the Kempinski Hotel River Park offers inspired culinary creations to be enjoyed in a choice of unique settings. German Executive Chef – Béla Rieck – brings an extensive international experience to the hotel and creates innovative dishes, fitting with hotel’s contemporary and modern style. Arte Restaurant is the hotel’s signature restaurant. It provides a dining experience that reflects Bratislava lifestyle, offering panoramic views of the Danube River, the freshest produce in an innovative and contemporary menu, an extensive wine list with friendly and highly efficient service. Chef´s original crab meat cake or Wagyu diamond label tenderloin are not to be missed. Apart from the delicious menu and popular Business lunch, the River Bank Brasserie offers a variety of grilled dishes including the best of freshwater fish and seafood. Additionally, guests can experience the live carving and food preparation at the table, in the warm weather also on the summer terrace with Danube river view. Park Lounge, located on the ground floor, is a perfect place to meet friends or business partners and choose from healthy salads and fresh juices, light lunch menus and snacks, cocktails or wines. After a long business day, guests can savour their cigar in the cozy atmosphere of the Churchill Cigar Club with a selection of the best spirits and tobaccos in the world.

The high standard of hotel services will be enhanced by conference facilities with comfort sufficient for hosting international congresses. The eleven conference rooms have the latest audio-visual and conference technology perfectly integrated into their design and complimentary high-speed internet: some of the rooms are with floor-to-ceiling windows or terraces offering stunning river views.

Bratislava – an emerging and still relatively undiscovered tourist destination on the border with both Austria and Hungary is often referred to as the Beauty on the Danube. The charming cobble-stoned streets of the Old Town lead to many beautiful monuments and museums, which attest to Slovakia’s rich cultural heritage. The Bratislava Music Festival, Bratislava Jazz Days, the Opera and Ballet of the Slovak National Theatre, concerts by the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra or the Summer Festival of Culture and Arts guarantee a great cultural experience. Bratislava is also one of the youngest capitals in the world and the changing and vibrating atmosphere of a city seeking its own identity is fascinating! The city also offers great shopping, nightlife, romantic river cruises or wine tasting in the surrounding vineyards.
