About Jozef

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. - St. Augustine

We love to travel and we try to travel around the globe each time there is a chance. That helped us the most to know what should the apartment Blue offer to feel there like at home! We always try to do our best to make your stay nice, if you are happy then we are happy also !

Jozef purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Jozef chose Old Town

Central Old Town Bratislava location which is still easy to access with all kind of transportation, just on the edge of only pedestrians zone, you can't really get closer to the main square and at the same time have all the important spots around you. Shopping is easy, everything within 5 minutes walk. Each side of the building is close to various transportation nods so it is easy to get there/from the airport, train station, bus station. It is also easy to get off the taxi right in front of the building.

The apartment Blue is in the heart of Old Town and at the same time it is super quiet you would not believe, just see the reviews of our past guests. The apartment is facing the courtyard and the walls are thick, 100 years old, remember a lot from the history !

What makes this apartment unique

Clear instructions, care, respect and comfortable stay. Same as what we expect when we travel.

It has a great location in the old town, walking distance within few minutes to almost all tourist attractions, restaurants, cafes, night life, green park etc.

We have for our guests information about city and maps, if there is something we dont know - then only 4 minutes walk from the apartment is a tourist information office where they give you for free all kind of other information, maps, brochures or help you with ticket discounts.

What people probably like the most is the location vs how quiet it is. You would think you are out of town because its so quiet apartment. Easy to be busy during the day/night and then sleep very well. Windows have outside shutters/blinds which make the place completely dark any time you wish, this is usually very popular for people with jet lag and they can take a good short nap any time.

Wonderful accommodations and host!

  • 5 of 5

Not much to add to all of the other 5 star reviews. Excellent pre arrival communication. We were met at the apartment by Jozef who went over important details with us and left us with a helpful binder of information. Also, we liked that he had water available for purchase. This was our first VRBO experience and will most likely become that by which all other stays are judged. Bottom line, Jozef owns the place and occasionally stays there. He genuinely cares about the property, much more than corporate owned properties. Lastly, the location is ideal, on the border of the old town area. We would definitely Stay again, Thanks Jozef!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Apartment Blue and, again, the location, cleanliness, amenities, and hospitality of the host, Jozef, surpassed our experiences with other rentals. The binder located in the apartment contains information you might need for the apartment, plus sightseeing, personal restaurant recommendations and more. We will be back again.

Beautiful apartment close to city center

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 4-day stay in this apartment in Bratislava. Jozef kept in constant communication with us before and during our stay. He sent us all the information we needed to plan our trip by email. There was also a full folder with information about the city and the apartment. He included manuals for every device. The apartment was nice, big, clean and everything was fully functioning. The location is perfect, you can reach everything by a short foot walk.

Bratislava is the perfect city for a nice weekend city trip. The food was absolutely amazing, our favourite restaurant was Zelený Rodrigéz but there were many more very good restaurants. We went to almost all the normal sightseeing places and enjoyed our trip a lot. If we come back to Bratislava, we are definitely going to stay here again :)

Beautiful city, lovely apartment, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment, ideally situated for exploring Bratislava. The apartment is just minutes from the Old Town, meaning you can easily experience the atmosphere of the Old Town, but you get a quiet night’s sleep! Bratislava is easily explored on foot, but if you want to travel further afield (or are traveling from Bratislava airport), the apartment is close to multiple public transport stops.

We couldn’t fault the apartment. It was comfortable, clean, spacious and had everything you could possibly need, and more.

Our host (Jozef) was excellent throughout. All enquiries were promptly answered, and we were provided with useful pre-arrival information that really showed that Jozef wanted to ensure that his guests had a great time staying in his apartment. If you have questions about places you’d like to visit, or activities you'd like to undertake, then run them by Jozef; we found him to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

Outstanding stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in Jozef's Apartment Blue. We frequently use Homeaway and other sites for personal housing rentals, and Apartment Blue is BY FAR the most outstanding. Jozef kept in contact with us from the time we booked until the time we left.

The apartment was very clean and included any item which you might need: two televisions including many English stations, a collection of DVD's, telephone, fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer. There is a cabinet stocked with water, beer, etc. which you can use and purchase with your stay. The beds were very comfortable.

It was very quiet there, even though you are only a very short walk to the old town. All windows face the courtyard.

Jozef has a binder including any information you might need for your trip, including maps, information in appliances, information on all of the sights, detailed information on various restaurant recommendations, and also a vocabulary translation of words geared toward tourists. The location was perfectly convenient to walk to all of the sites, including the Bratislava Castle.

Jozef should be in the tourism industry, as he was by far the most accommodating host we have ever encountered. He also assisted us in trying to find our possible distant relatives from the area.

If you are visiting Bratislava, Apartment Blue is definitely the place to stay. And you will be lucky to have Jozef as your proprietor!
