MT Business Travel: Frequent flyer Dido Harding's guide to Bratislava

HOW TO GET THERE - I fly with SkyEurope. It's cheap, easy and flies from Stansted. EasyJet flies from Luton. It takes just over two hours.

AIRPORT TO TOWN - Taxis are easy to get and take 30 minutes - congestion is never a problem. Taxis are metered, and it's always less than £10, so I've never felt ripped off.

BEST HOTEL - The Radisson SAS Carlton 1 (Hviezdoslavovo namestie 3, +421 2 5939 0000, is the best hotel in Bratislava.

It has great views over the Danube and Hviezdoslav square. The Radisson has a beautiful old facade typical of the city's architecture, but inside offers everything you'd expect of a business hotel, such as a good gym and decent restaurants. The Crowne Plaza 2 (Hodzovo namestie 2, 5934 8111, opened recently, just opposite the presidential palace in the town centre. Next to the Radisson is the Hotel Danube 3 (Rybne namestie 1, 5934 0000, - a cheaper, and pleasant, locals' hotel.
