From Vienna or Budapest to Hotel Matyšák by car

In your own interest, approach the Hotel Matyšák from the northwest rather than from the city center i.e. southeast. The reason is that the hotel is situated on the western side of the Pražská Street and there is a double solid line in the middle of the street. After entering the hotel’s address to the GPS navigator, please verify that the route conforms with these traffic restrictions. The optimal route is as follows: approach Bratislava from the south by the D2 highway direction Praha/Brno. Leave the highway immediately after the bridge over the Danube river at the exit Mlynská dolina. Take the direction „Patrónka“ and keep driving straight until the second traffic lights – the Patrónka crossing. Then turn right toward the city center  („Centrum“) and continue for about 2.5 km until you reach the Hotel Matyšák (see the full red line in the map 2).
