We booked this hotel for my brothers birthday celebration weekend in October. The hotel is well located with bars, cafés and restaurants within walking distance and also easy access to the metro and trams. Wenceslas Square is a couple of blocks away with it's shops and restaurants worth a visit. Access to the hotel is up a flight of stairs off a very busy street there's a 24 hour reception on the first floor. Although there is no dedicated bar, drinks can be purchased at reception and either consumed in reception, where there are a few seats or taken to rooms. There are stairs up to the other floors and a lift. One issue with the lift is that the lift is located on the landings between the floors where the bedrooms are, meaning that if you use the lift you will still have to either ascended or descend one flight of stairs to get to your room, not good if you have mobility issues. The rooms are well appointed with flat screen LCD TVs, safe, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. Our room had a large bathroom with a tub and hand held shower head, a higher bracket would have been nice to make showering easier, however the water pressure and temperature was good. Toiletries were provided and the towels were of good quality. Beds were very comfortable. The room we had was on the front of the hotel on the third floor. When we arrived the room was excessively hot so we turned the radiators off and opened a window. The road outside was very noisy so with the window open not conducive with a good night's sleep. If you like your bedroom warm with the windows shut you should be okay (very good sound proofing double glazing). Breakfast is included in the restaurant on the ground floor, I think 7 - 10 am, a very good selection of hot and cold options with teas, coffees and fruit juices, very enjoyable. In conclusion: lovely hotel in a very good location with great facilities. Perhaps not good for anyone with mobility issues due to steps at entrance and the lift issue I have mentioned. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I would stay here again when I return to lovely Prague.
Hotel Raffaello is great location to use a your base in Prague. But it is noisy. I was there in September and weather was great but warm. There is no air conditioning so room was stuffy and hot unless we opened the windows and so it was very noisy all night. Breakfast was good way to start the day- yoghurt, fruit coffee with steamed milk all excellent. Bathrooms were just updated and there was a great tub to take a bath. I would say it was good vs.ue for the price!
Situated in a rather accessible location, Hotel Raffaello is value for money and a nice place to wind down after a long day of exploring the city. Transportation is definitely the least of your worries, with tram stops and I.P Pavlova metro station just about two minute walk away from the hotel. The receptionists on duty were very accommodating, informative and helpful! During my stay, I took tram and metro rides and even walked from the hotel to Wenceslas Square, which is a really good way of seeing the place although it took more or less 20 minutes on foot. Hungry at night? The neighbourhood is filled with eateries – from KFC, McDonalds and Starbucks to restaurants selling authentic Czech food, everything is within walking distance. There was even a mini farmer’s market on one of the days we were there, selling fresh and very affordable produce. Don’t expect to be wow-ed at their breakfast spread, it’s standard but quite alright for the price you’re paying for the hotel. All in all, Hotel Raffaello is a nice place to stay at if you want to be in an accessible location but don’t want to burn a hole in your pocket.
A very pleasant stay, comfortable and clean room that was also quite, considering it is in the centre of Prague which made it easy to get around, both trams and metro station was with a very short distance from the hotel. With complementary breakfast and free wifi throughout the hotel, all the staff were very helpful with sightseeing questions too. A very nice hotel.
we stay here for 3 nights this week. I wouldn't call it a 4 star more like a 3 star. But it was clean and cheap and the staff where very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't bother with the breakfast , we had it the first day but didn't bother after that. there is a Tesco around the corner for drinks and snack as there is a shop across from the hotel but it was crazy expensive.
Excellently situated for exploring Prague. About a 40 minute drive from The airport and a 10 minute walk to Wenceslas Square. The reception staff were all very friendly and helpful. They are happy to arrange trips and taxis for you should you wish. The room was clean and comfortable and the buffet breakfast was very comprehensive. I would happily stay here again, the only reasons I have not given 5 stars are that the extractor fan in the bathroom didn't work and they only start serving breakfast at 7.30 which was too late for us on the day we flew home.
This hotel did not disappoint. Staff were extremely friendly and always ready to help answer all your questions. Rooms were just the right size with a nice desk and amour; I had a nice little terrace with my room that allowed the morning sun to filter in and wake me up naturally. The bathe room was a decent size however the shower was extremely small and you could not turn around in it - at least I couldn't. The location was in a nice spot as well, located down a quite street just across from a nice church and a short stroll from the St Maria Maggoire Basicilla. If you are looking for a nice quite hotel with staff that treat you like family I suggest you stay at the Hotel Raffaello.
The room was comfortable and quiet,not much of a view though.There was no restaurant and only breakfeast was provided. The location was adequate, in that there were several restaurants within walking distance. The hotel was clean and the staff at reception both friendly and helpful.
Great location - just a minute from the I.P. Pavlova metro station, in a safe street with currency exchange on every side, a small grocery shop just across, bars and pharmacies nearby. A fabulous cathedral is down the block. Friendly staff, clean rooms, a fridge and a safe in the room. I wasn't disturbed by any street noise. I just found the beds too soft, but that's not a bad thing for most people. The bathroom was nice, like at some home. The shower could have had a higher fixed position but it was ok anyway. Everything was just fine, including the breakfasts. I didn't understand what it was that they called orange juice but there was plenty of food to choose from. Great wifi! Thank you staff! Keep it up! Will recommend your hotel to others.
Stayed 4 nights at the Rafaello from 21-25 March 2017. The location is ok, approximately 15 minutes walk to centre. It is on a very busy road. Our room was at the front of the hotel and the traffic noise was terrible from around 5am in the morning. The hotel was cleaned to a good standard, the beds were comfortable. There isn't a bar at the Rafaello and they only supply snacks (found in reception) which included kitkats, mars bars, peanuts, nothing substantial. There is a well stocked shop right across the road from the hotel and also a bar called Legends that serves reasonable food. The breakfast in the hotel was very poor. It states breakfast is until 10am however we went down each morning for 9:15am and there wasn't a lot left, one morning it took them 10 minutes to bring out more bread for the toaster and even longer to replenish the cheeses. The breakfast staff were not at all friendly and were visibly annoyed when people came into the breakfast room at 9:45. The reception staff were friendly, spoke English and were helpful. I wouldn't stay here again.
