Accomodation is one thing and its location is another.

Walking distance (15 min) from Presidential palace there is a Bratislava Castle.
The castle is on the hill, so during the day you can visit the castle and have a nice view on Bratislava. During the night you can also have a nice view, but the castle is closed.

3. Pension Petit (my pick) 

Pension Petit, budget accomodation, Bratislava, Slovakia

This beautiful square offers you several things. You can have a walk around, you can sit in the park, during the summer you may watch the fountain or sit outside in a pub or café.
During the winter you may also be part of Christmas market with various stalls and atmosphere enjoying wine. There are also beautiful historical buildings around such as National Theatre, Hotel Carlton, etc. It is directly in the city center, so you may walk around the downtown to enjoy the history and atmosphere of relatively this small downtown.

4. Downtown Backpacker's Hostel

This tower with unique shape looks like UFO above Bratislava. You can take a lift up there for approximately 10 Eur and enjoy the view around Bratislava. At the very top there is a view point, and 2 floors lower there is a restaurant.
The food is pricey, and at the same time small. Like one could say, it is price, but at least small hehe J.
However you may enjoy the coffee or tee.
Men are a bit luckier here, during pissing in restroom they have excellent view on Bratislava.

5. Hostel Brickyard
