Hotel TAURUS * * * * is situated in the center of the city right in the METRO underground station, just a few minutes from the Wenceslas Square, the National Museum and the Old Town, in the superb quarter of Royal Vinohrady. There are many shops and restaurants and a modern Flora shopping centre near the hotel or the New Jewish Cemetery, where also the world-famous writer Franz Kafka has been buried. Do not miss the view of Prague from the nearby Zizkov TV Tower, either from the restaurant (66m) or from the observation cabin (93m). The hotel provides accommodation in 57 rooms. Most rooms are equipped with antique furniture from the turn of the 19th century and some rooms are equipped with modern furniture. Each room provides a bathroom with a shower and toilet, an LCD TV set with a satellite receiver, mini bar, wifi connection, direct phone, safe deposit box, hair dryer, toiletries and aids for making tea and coffee (free of charge).

Perfect

Hotel met an exceeded expectations. Friendly, knowledgable and efficient receptionists. Room cleaned, towels replaced everyday without needing to ask. Wide selection for breakfast, from cereal, croissants and a beautiful fry, along with fruit and yoghurt. Situated on the main green metro line it was only 4/5 stops from most of the main tourist attractions, and with trams arriving every few mins it was never difficult to travel in any direction. Would recommend to any couple travelling to Prague!!

short break

Excellent accommodation located near the centre (a couple of metro stops) or a 30 min walk. A few lively bars and restaurants on the doorstep. Hotel staff very friendly and knowledgeable.

Easy to get to. Near metro And trams. Loc bars and restaurants near. Reception wonderful. Very helpful friendly and knowledgable. The bedroom was spacious and recently refurbished. No complaint. Breakfast was very good plenty of everything. I booked taxi transfer with hotel all went smoothly. The hotel sold metro/tram tickets. Which was a bonus.we ate locally and had superb food. All in all a joy of a hotel. Can't recommend it eenough.

Couples Weekend Break

Rooms are very clean and decor was nice. Very old Victorian style with a fresh modern bathroom. Couldn't fault this hotel on anything, one of the best and handiest things is actually that we had Wi-Fi in our room at no additional cost. Very handy when it comes to looking up what to do, where to go, what's around. There is also a mini bar in the room, bottles of wine and local beer are about €1.50, very reasonable. Although the hotel is located slightly out the subway which is very easy to use is just a 2 minutes walk away and only cost like €1 to get into town, and takes about 4 mins. There is also a TV tower very near the hotel which is one of the coolest things we seen in Prague, which we would not have seen had we not stayed at this hotel.

hot

My room was on the 5th floor. The elevator goes to 4 and then you need to walk another flight. There was no A/C and the room was almost unbearable. it had a sloped ceiling leaving very little head room above the bed. The rooms on the first 4 floors are probably much better. It was a long walk to everything. Free breakfast was a plus. Staff was helpful

Nice place for the single traveller

The Taurus Hotel is a pretty nice place if traveling is your primary objective. The good news is the price was outstanding. The price also included an above average breakfast and free wi-fi. The staff spoke exceptional english and were more helpful than your average American Hampton Inn. The mediocre news is that the rooms are..... creepy and a bit old. They also have cots lining the halls which was strange. The bad news is that the walls are very thin. I could hear quiet conversations next door. Additionally, it is a pretty good hike from the train station. But, if you are confident with exploring metros and public transit, it should not pose much of a problem. Decent sites around the place, but it is not walking distance from the Astrological Clock, bridge, or palace. As a single guy who just wanted to see Prague, it was ideal. Not too pricey and close enough to the sights for someone who doesn't have a family to herd. I would recommend it!
