Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So many teas to choose from! The bomb shelter is such a fun space with different themed nooks. The layout offers somewhat private spaces for your party to relax and enjoy the many tea options. Such a cool spot!

We went there around 11 am, right after opening. We were the first customers of the day and the owner took her time to explain the preparation of the teas. The shelter is divided in several rooms with each a theme (Africa, India…). Very nice!...It also allows you to enjoy your tea in peace.More

Great atmosphere, different cozy rooms, we sat at the Africa section. Large selection of teas at very good prices (€5), I tried the Lapacho and find it very much to my liking. Polite and friendly English-speaking service. Highly recommended!

Quite a unique experience. We were a group of five and loved the overall vibe. It's an interesting idea to use a bomb shelter as a tea room. Service was great, the tea was unusual and very original & still great

Absolutely lovely place. The worker and the ambiance were really sweet. On a hot day, it's the perfect temperature (since it's a former bunker) and all their teas can be made cold/iced, which was perfect on a hot day.

We discovered that place by pure luck and we stayed for more than 3 hours! It was tastefully decorated, each seating area had a different atmosphere and culture it was associated with, the teas were wonderful and Alex was very knowledgeable of everything: she let...us brew our own teas and her recommendations were perfect for both of us. I just regret leaving and not having the time to come back. That would be for next time! Highly recommend if you want to have a break and enjoy warm or ice tea in a relaxing atmosphere that'll transport you around the world. A must!More

We had heard about this spot on an “Interrail for older crowd” fb group, & were not disappointed! What a really lovely and quirky place to relax in. The little alcoves and ‘rooms’ are beautifully decorated 😎 Young lady was great serving us and having...a chat afterwards 👍 The Matcha milkshake and Nepal White tea hit the spot perfectly after a long day of travelling and exploring, and the hummus and Istanbul pita was good too. The menu was a little daunting, but we had as long as we needed to chose, & they do have the option to take a random choice 🤣 A highly recommended stop for anyone in need of a relaxing break. Thanks!More

Absolutely a ‘speakeasy’ tea room and I loved it. Ambiance is absolutely beautiful and relaxing and I wish there were more of these hidden gems. Friendly staff as well with an awesome selection of teas and snacks.

I didnt expect a lot from a place in the middle of the center full of tourist traps and i thought the bunker environment is just a fun gimmick but the tearoom is absolutely excellent, great choice of teas and wonderful employees that make you...feel very welcome. the snacks are also pretty nice, if i lived in bratislava i would be a regular.More

This place feels like home. I came here from vienna with a friend and we're definitely coming back. The decoration is super lovely and every table has a comfortable little space of it's own. They have games such as chess which you can play and...an amazing variety of different teas, if you can't decide on what to order you can let them suprise you (and you won't regret!!!) The staff was also super friend and we had a great time there, totally recommend!!More

There are 90 different teas to choose from they are all thermometer tested to get the right temperature for each tea I have to say I absolutely loved it it's nice to get a tea That's made professionally to the right temperature it really bought...out all the flavour of the tea. The bunker was lovely it had a lovely ambience the lady making our tea was nice and helpful. Be aware my elderflower tea came in a bucket size mug I couldn't finish it even though it was really good.More

Came across this by accident, being British the opportunity to have a cuppa could not be passed by. It's fascinating to see what a cold war bomb shelter is like, to think that forty five people could be made safe in this structure for seventy...five hours. The young lady hostess made us very welcome and produced us two types of tea out of a possible 90, my wife had elderflower and I had a good dark Indian the, typical British tea, served with milk as it should. I asked her if she knew why tea was such an important part of the British way of life, she didn't realize how important it is to us. I educated her on the industrial revolution, and how the tea break is actually in our employment law. It's certainly a very pleasant experience, especially if you want to chill out after Christmas shopping. Be warned the stairs down are steep but have a good handrail.More
