Arkada Hotel Praha

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel room had a connecting door to someone else's hotel room. The problem was that this door did not stop any noise from coming through. Even worse, at night I noticed a space between, as the light from another room was shining into my room, which enabled either side to see into another room. When the person in another room walked around the room, flushed the toilet, tossed on the bed, and made other innocent moves I could hear it just like the person was in my hotel room. Unacceptable. As I was there for a conference, I spoke with others about their experience with the connecting doors. They were more or less the same to the one I had.

Of course, this is not the best hotel that you can find in Prague, but ... Rooms are nice, little and clean, service is friendly, wi-fi (doesn’t work perfectly, but it works). The hotel is located in 5-10 minutes walk from Wenceslas Square - pretty close to the center, but without any noise and fuss. We think, this area is for locals more than for tourists. In a minute from “Arkada” you will find a restaurant and a bar (We can recommend this rest "Sova". We had dinner there 3 times, food was delicious, service was friendly, unlike restaurants in the center and prices are very good for the quality). Also, in a 5 minutes walk from hotel you will find the majestic Church of St Ludmila. All in all, good quality for the price.

Three of us stayed here for a long weekend break in an unusually mild late November. Due to the very reasonable price we actually booked three singles, rather than sharing, and ended up with three adjacent rooms in our own little corridor, so it worked perfectly. Its located about 5-10 mins walk from the 'top' end of Wenceslas Square, so within easy reach to all the sights but far enough from the sounds! Quiet but safe side-street with plenty of bars/shops/cafes nearby. Would definitely recommend the NUBEERBAR directly over the road if you like craft ale. 24hr reception that was always friendly and helpful. Rooms were small but perfectly formed. Traditional but quality furniture and fittings. Bathroom was excellent with a very powerful shower. The cleaner managed to pop in each morning whilst we were downstairs at breakfast. The breakfast was in the basement Italian restaurant and manned by an incredibly hard-working family by the looks of it. Full continental spread constantly topped up. Strong coffee worked wonders! Would definitely recommend for those slightly on a budget who don't mind a little bit of walking. Nice independent hotel with friendly staff, no complaints whatsoever.

Unfortunately only spending one night here and not arriving until after midnight we checked in went to bed and got up next morning for a decent breakfast before checking out. The hotel doesn't have tea or coffee making in the rooms but there is a hot and cold drinks vending machine in reception. The room was traditional in decor but pleasant and clean. On checking out the owner was in reception and we shared a little conversation which a pleasant experience.

As the title says I was not happy about our visit here. We landed at Prague at 0100hrs (the hotel offered a taxi for €29 but it’s only €13 with Uber.). The issue arose when we were give a single room EACH for me and my wife, even though we had booked a double. They said the hotel was full and there was nothing we could do. NOT HAPPY. The shower in my wife’s (single) room also was broken. Would not stay here again.

This small beautifully decorated Art Nouveau hotel was our favorite place to stay in Prague during our year of living in the Czech Republic (2016-17). The hotel offers well-appointed rooms and lovely breakfasts. The staff members are helpful, courteous, and always available. It is located close to the tram system and a Metro stop.

Inexpensive small rooms are just what I need when I'm visiting a new city. The basement restaurant is great for breakfasts, with lots of Czech pickled vegetables and so on rather than the usual sweet carbos. Also good coffee. It was pretty lonely when I showed up at dinner, but that's OK - lots of good restos in the near neighborhood.

Nice hotel near city center. Friendly staff, but not so good breakfast. Good for this price. Room is not so big but we dont need more. If we come back in Prague we take this hotel one more time. Goodluck guyz.

Hotel is fine, nothing fancy, just fine. The bed was great for me, the pillow looked very big but I had the fold it to have enough support. I slept great. Room was clean and so was the bathroom. Shower was constant in pressure and temprature, wich is something I like. What I didn't like about this room was the lac of coffee/tea facilities in the room and the total lac of ventilation!!!!! It's is possible to open the window but the street is pretty noisy in the morning..

You don’t need to take a taxi or a transfer bus to get to the hotel. Just go to the left when coming out into the arrivals hall, pass the information desk and go and buy your ticket to the Prague transport system at their kiosk. A single ticket costs 32 CZK, a 24 hour ticket 110 CZK (just over 4 EUR) and a 72 hour ticket 310 CZK (about 12 EUR). Turn to the right when you get out of the building and cross over to the other side of the road, find the stop for bus 119 and travel to its end station Nadrazi Veslavin. Follow the crowd when you get off the bus but cross the street to get to the lift with your luggage. Take the Metro to the seventh station Muzeo . When you get off at Muzeo do not follow the crowd, that head for the escalator, but go to the opposite end and go up with the lift. Coming out of the lift you are beside the new building of the National Museum (Narodni Muzeum). Head for the underpass, get up the walkway and you will be at the beginning of a small street leading off at a 120 degree angle. At the first crossing you turn left into Rimska street and take the first right into Balbinova Street and you will find Arkada hotel on the left at #8. Enter the third door to find the reception. As in many European countries, but Britain, you enter the first floor that equals the ground floor. The lift will take you to all floors including the breakfast restaurant in the cellar. Remember to hold your key card in front of the reader to the right of the number board to get the green light for using the lift. I’d asked for a quiet room so I got a room towards the neglected back yard. As there is very little traffic in Balbinova street I suggest you ask for a room looking out onto the street. The room was really clean and was equipped with full sized mirror, writing table with table lamp, chair, bed side table with lamp that was no good for reading in bed so I had to change places ofthe two table lamps. You’ll also find a wardrobe where to hang your clothes or to put them on the shelves. I loved to see the laptop sized safe placed in the middle of the wardrobe, not to the bottom to make you crawl on the floor nor at the top to make a short person climb a chair. The bed was made for a good night’s sleep. The free and open Wi-Fi worked really fine. The tiled, good sized bathroom had a shower cabin, hair drier, shampoo and soap and was brightly lit. The quite big breakfast room is situated in the cellar and serves a buffet with hot and cold choices. The hot choices were eggs, sausages and boiled broccoli/cauliflower. The cold stuff was juice, a good selection of bread, fresh vegetables and fruit, egg halves, cheeses, ham, salami, some kind of fish, muesli, yoghurt, sweet cakes and more. The only thing I did not like about the breakfast was that the room itself was too hot. I like the location of Arkada hotel in an area with a lot of moderate priced restaurants and only 400 meters away from the Muzeo tram and Metro stations. The Muzeo metro station is an interchange station between the green A-line and the red C-line but I prefer to travel with the trams as you get a good view of Prague. The post office is about 3 minutes or 250 meters away. Turn left when leaving the hotel, turn next left into Angelica street and next left into Italska street and post office is on the left. I recommend Arkada Hotel for its good central but quiet location and the good friendly service given by the staff.
