We arrived and the receptionist was very polite and helpful; he gave us some info about the town showing the map. The room was on the main street but it was not a problem for us (Double glasses are good). The room was clean. Perhaps not a real **** but for sure a good ***. Towels were not changed every day. Continental Breakfast was ok. Good location, we never used public transport. In 15 minutes we can arrive in the main street by walk. Good hotel.
A very pleasant hotel, it is very clean and quiet even though it is located on the main road. There is a metro station right around the corner which is ideal to explore the city and go to the airport. Staff are helpful and can all speak English. I really enjoyed my stay and if I return to Prague - I will be staying in this lovely hotel.
On arrival the receptionist was very polite and helpful. Advising us that our room was not ready (we were early) gave us maps and showed us the best monuments on said map in relation to where we were. our room was nice and clean although in my opinion not luxurious as stated on this site. Breakfast was ok with the usual options for a continental. Hotel is about a mile from the centre of town, mostly up hill on the way back. All in all not a bad hotel.
Lovely, safe hotel with very friendly staff. It was clean and very quiet. Good location. The breakfast was amazing and very good for vegetarians (with lots of variety and different options each day). The also kindly let us leave luggage for the day after checkout/before our flight. They also do breakfast to go and you can ask for a parking space to be booked for you. I would highly recommend.
At less than £150 for three nights (in Feb) I'll be honest I wasn't expecting much from the hotel. It was nice and central and did breakfast and that was fine by me. However, I was blown away by the hotel room. Well, more like a suite actually. As you entered the door I was pleased with how big I perceived the room to be, only then to find a little staircase at the far end of the room that lead to another floor. With another bathroom. There was even a little sink and 'kitchen' on the 'ground floor' of the room. I was there with my 13 year old son and after our stay I told him that he could book another 100 hotel rooms and not find one as nice as that one. It had four beds and a settee so you could even sleep five there if necessary. But 3-4 would not feel like a crowd. Less than 100 yards to a Metro station, less than 200 yards to a McDonalds and KFC (I was with a teenager) as well and about a ten min walk to Wenceslas Square. I can not recommend this hotel enough and will be returning there on my next visit to Prague.
Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of February for my boyfriends 21st. The location was excellent, right next to I.P. Pavlova station which was so handy for travelling and had restaurants on the same street and chains such as McDonalds, KFC and Starbucks on the next street. We arrived at the hotel around 12pm so didn't expect the room to be ready but it was so that was very handy. Both receptionists who we saw during our time were friendly and helpful and answered any questions we had. I didn't expect a lot from breakfast but it was very lovely! The buffet included fresh fruit, cold meats, cheese, olives, around 5/6 different cereals, toast and even a small selection of hot food, so something for everyone. The rooms were nice also as were the bathroom. Only weird thing is the shower hanging was around hip level with no option to place above your head except holding it yourself (can only assume this was to save water?). As a whole it really was a great hotel, for the price it is surprising. Will definitely return to the hotel if I come back to Prague and without a doubt recommend to others.
A great hotel, we enjoyed our stay here at the Hotel Raffaello. Each morning we had some unique traditional Czech breakfasts, before venturing out to explore the city. It is about a 10/15 minute stroll from the hotel into the center of Prague. But there is a metro stop just at the top of the road which is easily accessible to the public. (But if you travel on the metro systems, just make sure you purchase the correct tickets- and that you validate them on one of the station gateways before you use them for travel, less you get a fine!) We loved Prague, it was such a magical place to visit in Winter, or any time of year. Full of terrific history and many places for exploration. We took with us the JonGlez book by Martin Stejskal called 'Secret Prague' it's a useful guide book and we used it everyday to research & to find interesting places of history to visit. We'd love to return. We can recommend this hotel.
Stayed for three nights whilst visiting the Prague Christmas Market. Very good location within walking distance of Wenceslas Square. Our room faced the back of the building on the ground floor, which was very quiet. Arrived late and Receptionist pointed out local bar/restaurant Legenda. Food and drink were excellent value for money. Breakfast at this hotel was in the basement. Large buffet to help yourself to as much as you wanted. Both hot and cold foods and homemade Jelly with Pomegranates which was gorgeous, along with cereals, yogurt, jams, eggs, frankfurters, hot mixed vegetables, ham, cheese, fresh bread, rolls and an assortment of cakes. Hotel entrance was up a flight of stairs and the lift, which was a fairly new addition to the hotel took guests to between floors - so would not recommend to infirm or wheel chairs. As our room which was comfortable was opposite Reception did not use. Central heating was hot, but after being out in the cold was marvellous.
The last-minute.com description of this hotel was very misleading. We stayed for 3 nights in what was supposed to be a deluxe room, if ours was deluxe I pity the souls in a standard room. The bed was 2 single beds pushed together with 1 soft pillow, not what was advertised or shown in pictures. The shower was barely above the height of the taps, nice if you're a midget or want to shower sitting down. There was no climate control, the radiator in the bathroom was hot 24/7 but the room was freezing cold during the day and too hot at night. We came back one evening and the top window had been left open by house keeping staff all day ensuring it was freezing. The noise of traffic and trams from the busy street could be heard from 5 am making it difficult to sleep. Breakfast is the worst breakfast I have seen at any hotel; barely warm coffee, sweaty cheeses and meats, the hot food pasta/rice (for breakfast?), alternate forms for sausage or eggs.burnt scrambled eggs on second day. There was some muesli and yoghurt and breads. The staff could not make eye contact and did not speak. The only positives for this hotel was the proximity to the metro and trams to get away from there. I would not recommend the hotel nor would I return. I simpl y cannot understand how they rerceived a 4 star rating! Do yourself a favour and book elsewhere.
The hotel is close to all the main attractions, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to. We found not a huge amount around but there are some nice bars and some places for food. The hotel itself was comfortable, quiet and warm (which was welcome after a long cold day). We stayed in an apartment (room 503). It was lovely! The bed was comfy and was cleaned every day to a high standard. We did have to ask them to change the towels and re-stock the toiletries. But they did so plentifully. One thing I would have liked was English breakfast tea and milk in the room. But there was plenty in the breakfast room so was enjoyed every morning. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
