Beyond Expectations

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here last week for three nights. We were blown away with the hotel , as it was better than in the pictures or previous reviews we had read. Staff were beyond nice and helpful and we were staying in a room on the ground floor and didn't hear any noise from outside. The hotel is situated about 15 minutes from Theron square in New Town and has two bars directly opposite the hotel and two restaurants attached to the hotel which we definitely took advantage of, perfect location. Only downfall is the breakfast, cooked selection didn't look too appealing so we chose continental and we skipped it on the last morning. We used taxi transfers booked at reception to get to and from the airport which was great as you pay a set fee and it stops you getting ripped off by the taxi men.Thank you for the great stay.

In some of the restaurants it's up to half the price cheaper to sit inside, we ended up slashing our bill in half by moving inside.

Excellent value

Good location with several good bars/restaurants in the same street. Excellent breakfast buffet on 5th floor overlooking city. Rooms comfortable, very good shower. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The only downside was the absence of a reading lamp on the table in the room, but probably not many people would be worried about that. If we go back to Prague (and I certainly hope to) we would definitely stay there again.

Very good stay

We overall enjoyed our stay. The room was nice and breakfast was great value for money. Rece[tion satff was also helpful and friendly. There was 1 bad experience: when the hotel cancelled the shuttle bus to pick us from the airport. We were not informed about it by the hotel or the booking website: E-bookers. We were left stranded at the airport and had to make our way through using public transport.

Good for any kind of people!

Good, clean, friendly and helpfull staff! Pragues centrum is the old town where all the attractions are and this hotel is on the new part, so location could be better - but ofcourse it depends on where anyone wants to go. There are good public transportation!

Highly Reccomend!!

I booked a long weekend stay for me and my boyfriend in mid January, I was on a tight budget and booked this hotel because of it's good reviews. I couldn't have been happier, the hotel was stunning and the room was huge, worth far more than I paid!! The hotel is located well for getting around Prague with two metro stops within a few minutes walk of the hotel and a tram stop right outside. At the time I was having to use a crutch so walking too far was quite difficult but the location of the hotel meant that I didn't have to miss out on seeing anything. The reason I have only given a 3 for comfort of the room was purely because the heating was far too high for our personal comfort at night and the thermostats in the rooms cannot be turned down by the guest you have to ask reception to do it which unfortunately for us meant the room was never at the right temperature. Having said that this is the only slightly negative comment I have as apart from that everything was perfect and I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone. I fell in love with Prague so will most definitely be returning and there is no doubt in my mind that I will choose to stay here again.

get a 3 day pass for public transport, it costs the equivalent of £12 and you can use it on all transport and as many times as you want during the 72 hours

Lovely Christmas Break in Prague

There is a free shuttle bus which is worth taking if time allows. They run every 2 hours from 10am. The bus went full very quickly so we had to wait another 30 mins for a backup shuttle to come. It took us about 1 hour to get to the hotel due to the rush hour. The hotel is around 30 mins walk away to Wenceslas Square, felt safe walking and going through underpasses even very late at nearly 11pm. The hotel is around 10 mins to IP Pavlova metro A line and tram station. Tram 22 takes you to the main thoroughfares. The metro is very easy to navigate. The hotel staff are friendly and courteous and very helpful. The wifi is great and was able to do FaceTime without any problems. We noticed a couple of desktops in the lounge but we didn't need this at all as wifi reception was perfect from our room. The executive room is very spacious with comfy sofas and a sofa bed, very clean and modern. No bathtubs just powerful showers which suited us perfectly. Good breakfast buffet selection of continental meats, cereals, fruits and hot food. There is just a lobby bar in the hotel so we had to eat out for dinner which wasn't an issue as there are 3 restaurants a few paces away. The best was the Italian right next door. There's a traditional Czech and a cafe across the hotel. There is a shop in the corner not far away where you can get toiletries, snacks, etc. There is a tram line on the road perpendicular to Bruselska so if your room faces this road, you'll hear the trams rolling by. Our room doesn't face this road but we can still hear it but we didn't mind. The heavily discounted shuttle bus to the airport if time suits is well worth taking. It took 30 minutes from the hotel to the airport, all smooth. Overall a really enjoyable stay and we were glad that we have a lovely hotel to go back to at the end of our eventful day in the Centre.

Take the Prague on Segway tour. For 3 hours, you get a personal guide to take you on any of the spots you want to see in their Design your own tour. It's the best way to get around and its very manageable. We had so much fun and info at the same time. But wrap up well.
