The staff wasn't friendly at all. If u asked wich bus you need to take to the centrum it was too much to give a friendly answer. Rooms weren't very clean and the pillows were super small and flat. Breakfast was okay and there was enough choice.
This was my 8th visit to The Aron and 13th visit to Prague since 2003 and it is still a gem. If you are looking for a budget place to lay your head in the heart of down town Zizkov, this is for you. Travelling in to the centre is easy and cheap (the staff will happily tell you the tram and bus numbers and direct you to the stops, as well as selling you the tickets). There are many many really good bars and restaurants close by, as well as two of the most missed tourist attractions. Namely the TV Tower and The Vitcov memorial. Both of which have amazing views over Prague. Riegrovy Sady Park, just beyond the TV Tower is also a fantastic place for wonderful views. The hotel itself is on a very quiet side street, which means no traffic noise, or indeed tourist noise at night! The rooms are not deluxe, but they are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is more than adequate to fill you up for the day ahead, and the complaints I have seen about lack of variety are ridiculous, when you consider that they provide hot sausages, boiled eggs, various cold meats, cheeses and pate, fresh rolls and sliced bread, salad, fruit, 4 types of cereals, cakes, yogurt, jam, honey, plus coffee, chocolate, different teas, juices and water! Again, maybe not deluxe quality, but would you vary your breakfast this much at home? The choice of what you eat and drink is yours and it is quite easy to have something different each day of your stay! Another complaint I have seen is about the rudeness of the staff, which in my experience is unjustified. They can appear to be a bit stand offish sometimes, but they work very long hours and if you are polite and friendly to them the gesture is returned. On this occasion we arrived at 1pm and the same lady was still on reception when we went out that afternoon AND when we returned at night AND when we came down for breakfast the next morning! Having heard the way some guests speak to the receptionists (we saw 3 different ones during our 4 day stay), I am not surprised that sometimes they appear rude as they are merely trying to avoid conflict with weary travellers! On the day that we left, it was the lady with long dark hair who has received so many negative remarks. She was busy receiving a delivery, but she took the time to stop what she was doing and smiled broadly at us, thanking us for our visit and wishing us a safe journey home. Lastly, before leaving a negative review about this hotel, please remember what you have paid for what you have got?? It's a budget 3 star! Personally, this particular trip cost us less than £10 each per night in a triple room, which is fantastic value for money. A hotel in Prague is a place to lay your head in comfort and the Aron is just that. Keep your luxury places, unless that is what you want and if that is the case, expect to pay for them!
We booked this hotel through StudentUniverse because it was dirt cheap. I will list the cons first which should explain the lower price and then the pros which I feel outweigh the cons. SOME CONS: The halls smelled like cigarette ashes and had motion detecting lights installed. This made the hotel seem very run down and abandoned which is not the case. The room was average at best- single beds, thin mattresses with one pillow, small box television, all-in-one hand/hair/body soap and a small shower. Nevertheless, we were comfortable in this room. The area was... interesting. You will not be in a location where you can reach tourist attractions easily be foot, but that is fine as public transport will be your friend. I didn't necessarily feel unsafe walking to the hotel from our tramstop, but I wouldn't hang out outside the hotel alone at night. THE PROS Each morning we were treated to a complimentary breakfast with sausages, hardboiled eggs, oatmeal, coffee, juice etc. This was a great start to each day and saved us time and money. This hotel is about a 3 minute walk from the Biskupcova tram stop. You can take the 9 tram directly into the main squares in under 20 minutes and it will only cost 24 Kč (about $1) for the ride. The water in the shower was warm so bathing was no issue. The front desk staff-members were all kind and could speak enough English to communicate with customers. OVERALL This was a very convenient hotel for our stay in Prague. I will definitely use this hotel again the next time I am in Prague. FINAL ADVICE Make sure you are somewhat familiar with the tram system in Prague. Public transit will be necessary when using this hotel. Maps can be found in the airport, train station, and many tourist information offices. It is extremely easy to get where you need to be using the trams, and the metro (subway) can be used to get you to a direct bus (Bus 119) to the airport. Transit tickets can be used for all modes of transportation, so use this to your advantage.
Visited with my Wife. The room was quite ok, even if the fridgerator was horrible. Location was peaceful near of bus routes. The hotel itself smelled tobacco everywhere, and our room was too warm and air was really damp. Breakfast was decent.
We stayed here for 4 nights,very clean and comfortable great continental breakfast, and really nice staff.20 mins on the 207 bus to town. If your on a budget this is the place for you. It takes a hour from the airport which was also easy. If you use the bus get of at Tesco express and then you can walk down the hill to the hotel.
To me this place is typical of Prague. It's not massively fancy but it is homely and cheap. It is located a bus ride away from the main centre and there isn't lots to do directly around the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was also typical and I enjoyed it. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a cheap visit and do not mind a short, cheap bus fair into the centre.
Me and my 2 friends stayed here 4 nights.They had a double room and I Had a single room, which was in fact at the attic floor of the building (at the 5th floor, even if the elevator was only until the 4th floor),which could be a problem if you have heavy luggage. The room was old but accetably clean. The breakfast was ok, but the choice of food was anyway very poor.The worst part was the lady receptionist who started literally shouting at us when we arrived and had to make the check in. The other receptionist (a man ) in the other days was more kind. Regarding the distance to the city centre, it is approx 50 mins by foot..so it is better with the tram 9 or bus 207. The ride is about 10-15 mins. The bus stop is relatively close to the hotel (4-5 mins). Overall, the price is too high for the quality that this hotel offers.
We came here for 3 nights looking for a budget hotel close to the city centre. The hotel is situated 10 minutes from the old town via bus 207 which stops at Cerninova from which the hotel is a mere 5 minutes up a little quiet side street. At first, the road in which the bus stop is on seemed a little rough around the edges, however the hotel is off this road on a quiet, little street meaning noise pollution is of no worry. The hotel staff are friendly and all speak English! We even stopped to have a chat with our Russian sounding waiter who endevoured to explain that the best champagne around comes from Moscow. Our room was small, basic but however had everything you would possibly need. We has a balcony in which we had dinner off of and watched the sunset from, a TV, hot water and good strong WiFi. The walls are slightly thin and therefore means you can hear people sometimes in the stairwell , but this didn't seem that much of a problem. Breakfast was lovely and exactly what we needed to fill us up for both breakfast and lunch every day. The selection encompassed an array of cold meats, sausages, egg, cheese, breads, cereal, fruit, cake, joghurt, tea,coffee and fruit juices. The variety of nationalities here was also a surprise and was mostly comprised of young adults and middle aged people. All in all this hotel was very lovely and had no issues with our stay. I would highly recommend it for a budget stay .
It's not a tourist hotel. Pretty local ambiance. The breakfast is different from what in America you are used to. The service is ok. The hotel is old, it's clean, but they do room service every two days. The staff speaks English, they are a bit cold, but not rude. The area is residential, but is very near the city centre and the train station.
My friend and I stayed 5 nights. The hotel is 30 minutes away from the city centre and 10 minutes by bus which 207 go straight to the centre (old town square). As I mentioned we stayed 5 nights in this hotel, out of those 5 nights only 3 days we had cleaning room service however it wasn't the typical cleaning service as the only thing they done was take out the rubbish and out of the 4 towels we had (2 bath and 2 face) only 2 were changed on 2 visits!!! The beds were not changed since arrived, the floor wasn't hoovered and the bathroom was not cleaned! For a hotel this is disgusting!!! Even when the staff were cleaning the reception area they were on the phone and not paying attention to guests walking around who may trip on equipments! From the moment we arrive The hotel staff were not friendly at all, they gave you no Eye contact when communicating with you, one lady in particular gave people looks and made comments in her language. The breakfast was basic and they did not allow u to take anything out of the restaurant. This hotel is not a 3 star and I would not recommend this a commendation to anyone or would come back again.
