The conference will take place in 4* Hotel Tatra , Bratislava, Slovakia. The location of Hotel Tatra is shown on the map on the right-hand side of this page. It is situated right in the downtown, neighbouring with Grassalkovich Palace (Presidential mansion), just crossing a street is enough to get to the business and historical centre of Bratislava. Bratislava Castle is within a walking distance from the hotel.
You can get to Hotel Tatra from Bratislava Hlavna stanica (Main station of the train) by walk but indeed, walking 1.3km with a suitcase is not pleasant. However, the shortest 15min ticket for 0.70EUR is enough (paper tickets as well as electronic ones can be used), take bus No. 93 and get off on the second stop "Hodzovo namestie" (Hodza square - right in front of Grassalkovich Palace) and then it is just 350m by walk. Another possibility is to take a taxi. We strongly recommend using either taxi cell-phone application or some cell-phone app-based alternative taxi company rather than just jumping into the first taxi in front of the train station. (The price matters.)
If you come to Bratislava Airport, you can use bus No. 210 to get to Bratislava Hlavna stanica (train main station). But we recommend using direct transport to the hotel. Again, we recommend to order it in advance for a given price and then 20EUR could be enough.
Landing to Vienna airport will be probably very comfortable way how to get as close to Bratislava as possible from long distances without changing the flights too often. Getting from Vienna airport to Bratislava is not difficult as there is a direct shuttle to Bratislava city centre. But again, for your comfort after a long journey, we recommend to book a taxi/airport transfer in advance and for a price around 60EUR, you can get smoothly to Hotel Tatra.
