The Carlton Hotel complex on Hviezdoslavovo Square in Bratislava was bought by ESET anti-virus software company partners Rudolf Hrubý and Maroš Grund and by Arthur Real Estate Group owner Erik Mikurčík in July.

American investors led by Eric Assimakopoulos sold the luxury hotel complex to the Slovak investors for an undisclosed sum of money, the TASR newswire wrote on July 3.

In the late 1990s, the property was privatised and completely rebuilt by French-Belgian conglomerate Suez Tractebel Group. The hotel complex currently covers more than 60,000 square metres. Apart from hotel accommodation, it includes a casino, shops, offices and an underground car park.

The new owners want the complex to be actively involved in the cultural and social life of Bratislava.
