2If you're not going to use the return portion of your ticket, check Orangeways for bus service. The fare comes up at 2290 Forints one-way. You do have to pay to check in bags, but if you only have 1 bag it's only 1 Euro. You must show your passport and printed out ticket to board.

One way tickets costs app. 15 EUR, return is for 17,50 EUR. Maybe you can also get a reduced tariff (50% off the normal price). Just ask or see these information about traveling from Budapest to Bratislava

5You seem to have written that from the perspective of Bratislava.
There certainly isn't a €15 one-way fare from Budapest. As stated, the round-trip fare is cheaper - it can also be booked on-line on the MAV website, although since it is a walk-up fare that's not really necessary.
Also to talk of a train shuttling between the stations is a bit misleading - these are long-distance trains going to/from Prague, Berlin and Hamburg - as a result, they can suffer (occasionally) significant delays.
There is also a later train at 20:05 from Budapest - an overnight sleeper to Germany, but it does convey "normal" seating accommodation too.

6If you want to save a few cents, get a train to Komárom, cross the border and go to the Slovakian train station (20-30 minutes walk) and catch a train to Bratislava. This trip will be around 10€.

7Recently (11/5/13) bought two seats for two adults from Budapest to Bratislava in 5 minutes on Saturday lunch time at the main Budapest Keleti station. Trains run all the time. And within 5 minutes we were on our way. 10500 HUF. I wanted one way but return is the same price apparently. Mental system. Anyone want 2 tickets to Budapest from Bratislava one way good for one month.
