Avoid this hotel at all costs. Spend extra money elsewhere. The rooms are falling apart. The front staff are rude if you dont speak Czech. The night staff lady is a thief. She made me pay an extra 120 kč to check in for city tax. Only to be charged more when i departed for another city tax. Thats straight up theft to be charged twice. The night staff also were trying to push hookers. Bed was hard. Bathroom had a mildew stench. Tv was small. The only good thing was the location. Easy walking from namesti republicky and Old Town Square. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place if you value your dignity and wanted to be treated right without being gouged. City tax should be around 20kč a night. And paid upon checking out. The staff made me pay twice, if i didnt, they would call the police on me. One other things are the rooms are in disrepair, no ventilation in the bathroom, room smells like smoke. Better hotels are located not too far away, I highly recommend K+K Hotels. Going to Prague multiple times a year, this has been the worst experience. I will be filing a formal complaint with their head office and Expedia to warn them on the scams this place pulls.

We stayed at this hotel last Christmas; in its suite with private terrace and castle view. When we decided to come back to Prague again this Christmas we had no doubt about where we’d stay. When we arrived at the hotel Tereza was on duty at the reception desk. She couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming and did everything she could to ensure our check -in went as smoothly as possible. I didn’t realize but because I had booked directly with the hotel rather than through an agency we got a free one hour tour of Prague. Tereza asked if we knew when we would like to book this tour. We weren’t bothered as we know Prague and wouldn’t have taken the tour anyway but Tereza managed to change to tour into a river trip - something we did do. All the staff was very friendly. The only reason I’ve mentioned Tereza by name is that she was on duty both when we checked in and checked out and I was able to get her name. The room was good last year but is better this year. I’m not going to list all the improvements as I’m sure I’ll miss something but they include things like the a/c unit is now a fixed unit that provides both heating and cooling rather than a portable a/c unit and radiators; they’ve fixed the shower pole in the bathroom - it’s now firmly anchored; the room has been redecorated and still looks newly painted. The one thing that hasn’t been fixed it the light switches - they are still only labelled in Czech and seem to turn lights on and off indiscriminately. The breakfast room has changed from last year. It is still the same room but has been refitted. This refit has kept the Art Deco styling of the room, although the furniture itself is not Art Deco in style but still fits the area, but has made the area a much more suitable space. There is a very good cold buffet with three hot items although these are not as good as last year and the more Czech cuisine items are no longer on offer. The WIFI signal at the hotel is very good. Internet access has been very easy and I have had no problems streaming radio broadcasts from the UK. The hotel now has its own restaurant (I’ve reviewed it elsewhere) which is very good. This restaurant now links through to the breakfast area. I paid €147.20 for the night of 24/12 and €127.20 for each other night. I think this hotel is better than it was last year (when it was good) and I am happy that we are booked to stay here when we return to Prague in April.

We are a couple who stayed here for 3 nights. It is a good place to stay: not special, but nice. The room was comfortable, the breakfast was fine, the reception staff were most helpful (one of them brought in from his home a special adaptor for our room, while another arranged to post to Milan some clothes we had left behind by accident). Its adjacent restaurant has good food at a reasonable price. The hotel's location is good: not central, but in walking distance of the main sights. It was value for money (we paid €96.50 per night). Because we booked direct, we were given a voucher for a beer per person in the hotel's restaurant + a free 2-hours bus tour of Prague City.

The hotel is poor. Bath curtain smells bad! No shampoo in bathroom. Breakfast is poor. Bed is not comfort at all. Pillow is terrible. Personal is sleepy. If you are looking to spend good time in the hotel - forget about it. One night it was impossible to sleep because of the noise from the street.

Room on 3rd floor overlooked street and could be noisy till 3-4 am. Found it warm at night so had window open all night. I found bed hard, partner did not. Good location for walking everywhere. Great walking city

We have stayed at this hotel three times now and we have found that to be suitable for us. The welcome at the desk is very good and the receptionists are very helpful and informative. The rooms are clean and comfy. Only one niggle..... they need to get some different music in the breakfast room... there is only so many times you want to hear Freddie Mercury singing "Mr. Farenheight" !!!!!. otherwise a nice place to stay for a long weekend

Rooms are in principal ok, bed is very hard though. Breakfast was every day the same and bred was often hard or from day before. Guests who love to breakast I cannot recommend to have breakfast there. We had room in the 4th floor and the elevator is absolutely necessary - if you have time to wait for the elevator. Reception personal is not the fastest in aspects of payment. Payment had to be done completely in advance though. A dark blond girl at the reception was very unfriendly. We asked in the morning to stay longer in our hotelroom as the departure flight was scheduled very late. She said thats ok but we have to pay extra 10€/h for that. We aggreed and planned our rest of the day. When we came in in the afternoon to the reception she suddenly said - "oh I am sorry thats not anymore possible, I need the room". "You can decide" she responded. "Leave the room or put all your stuff behind me in a tiny locker room" Not OK - That was not what we have agreed in the morning. There are just so many new visitors every day in Prag that it is not important to be friendly to the guests.

Clean, no-frills hotel currently undergoing some renovations and updates in the lobby to add on a restaurant. Perfect location, within walking distance to most of Prague's amazing sites. Courteous and helpful staff. Adequate breakfast. Would definitely like to return to stay.

Obviously didn't expect much for being so cheap, but the front desk service was terrible. Some of the workers were so rude and unfriendly. One of the older woman with dark ponytail with the glasses was just not having it the morning I was checking out. she full-on lectured me for being an inconsiderate human and that I am "so rude and not a human" for cancelling their over-charged hotel taxi because I preferred to ride the uber to the airport. I kid you not, she lectured for good 10 minutes then demanded me to write a note with my signature why I cancelled the taxi. Other than the frustrating service there, they had ZERO wifi, the hallways smelled like cigarettes, and the bathroom (first floor room) reeked of piss. ^^

We stayed here one night because I couldn't get a booking for that night at the hotel we were staying at next door. I was skeptical because I got such a good price, and making reservations online sight unseen has burned me before. I was pleasantly surprised. It's very unassuming and the front desk workers vary from cold to friendly. The hotel is under renovation, but they are making an effort to keep it up and attractive. The hotel is decorated in Art Deco style and was just lovely. The hotel is absolutely in the BEST location. The Palladium is behind the hotel, Old Town and the Square are just a 4 minute walk and Wenceslas Square is maybe 7 minutes. There are so many bars and restaurants nearby. Great value and a great location. I wish we had spent our entire week in this hotel.
