Excellent hotel good continental breakfast there was a double bed and a single bed which was made up every day, there could have been more drawers but we only slept there and wore jeans and jumpers so no need to worry about creasing the clothes, the Gentle man on reception was great, overall 8 out of 10, very good
The Hotel was on the outskirts of the tourist areas, not far from Wenceslas Square. It took only 45 mins via bus and metro to get there from the airport, so easy. Come out of IP Pavlova stn. Take 2nd street on right and it’s on the right just up from a Kentucky Diner. Hotel itself is a good find for the price..we paid just over £100 for two nights B&B.(2 Adults). Breakfast caters for most pallets although being English, I love my traditional fry ups when away..and this wasn’t the best. But on the whole it was good. Hotel rooms v clean and warm. Beds comfy although it only had one thin duvet and only two pillows! Bathroom nice and clean too. The usual sights are within easy walks, Old Town square 20 mins, Charles Bridge 30 mins, Castle about an hour. Plenty of narrow streets to wander about and loads of cafes and bars. Beer is cheaper away from the sights, but costing the same as back home if you have one in the popular squares. Being the week before Christmas, the whole of Prague was decorated as you’d imagine..and the old town square was magical. Food is good and cheap in most restaurants with decent helpings. All in all, a nice stylish hotel, easy to get to and nice staff. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay for a short break.
The hotel is 2 blocks from I P Pavlova Train Station. The hotel serves only breakfast, and there is no one thereafter except for the receptionist. Therefore, assume it is a 2* hotel. Comode was not washed properly, shower was fixed way down low that you have to use it as a hand shower. Sugar was not replenished on the 2nd day and when we asked for sugar and person at the reception said that there is no one in the hotel except her and that she is not allowed to go into the restaurant! I insisted on getting sugar and asked her to check with the manager. When we returned to the hotel, I had to ask again for sugar and the receptionist handed it over nonchalantly while lounging back on his chair. The temperature in the room was warm, although the thermostat showed 18 degrees, and the reception could not do anything. We kept a window open. Good breakfast.
A small hotel which is clean and friendly. Situated only a few minutes from the Pavlova metro station. Friendly staff who are helpful and have a good knowledge of the city. Only complaint is it took 36 hours to get a plug for the sink. Breakfast is typical continental with cereals, fruit and cheeses. Self help and eat as much as you want.
Hotel Tyl is not a four star hotel but possibly three star! Good points -- excellent location ,15mins to wenchelas square and 25mins to the old town ,comfortable large bed and quiet at rear of hotel,mini-bar reasonably priced.Bad points-- Breakfast consists.of coldmeats,vegetables,scrambled egg and small sausages if available,tea and coffee in room not replenished daily,however plenty of cafes nearby overall good value hotel.
We loved the location of this hotel. There was a Christmas market outside the front door! The reception staff were so very friendly and helpful and we really appreciated it. The breakfast was nice, plenty of variety. The room was a little cold so the reception staff gave me an extra heater Very happy with the place and would stay again.
So firstly I don't understand what some of the negative views are about .. seriously some people like to moan over nothing for a good value hotel! This place is good, excellent for the price in my opinion and I would definitely stay again.. OK 4 stars maybe not - more like a 3* - but in terms of location, cleanliness and comfort, the hotel delivered :) It is perfectly located by Pavlova metro station (The red line) and has the trams passing also. The number 22 will bring you over to Mala Strana side. Or if you want to walk into the Old Town, it's about 5 minutes to Wenceslas statue. The a nice leisurely stroll from there will bring you into the maze of the Old Town.. So the hotel itself: Clean, friendly and comfy. The rooms are spacious with everything you need for a short break. Large wardrobe, drawers, table, etc.. I had room 104 on the first floor. I specifically asked for a quiet room after reading some of the reviews on here and then got allocated the one right by the lift and overlooking the main road below - so I thought oh no, it's going to be noisy. Err no!! No noise disturbances at all. There is a double door inside the room, so you can't hear any movement from others in the corridor and I couldn't hear anything from outside with the great double glazing. The bed is really comfy too - I had a great sleep every night. There is a kettle provided and tea/coffee. They only provide creamer though and not milk if that's your preference (stock up with the Burger King sachets at the airport on way over if you prefer milk ;)) Or bring up a cup full of milk from breakfast which I did each morning.. Leading nicely onto breakfast: plentiful and good for European standards or traditional fayre. A selection of cereals, pastries (some really nice cakes!), rolls and bread, cold meats and cheeses, fruit, yoghurts and your hot selection. The hot selection was scrambled eggs, sausages and a pasta type dish. I decided to try it one morning for the hell of it (When in Rome and all that..) and it was surprisingly tasty! Weird to be eating pasta in the morning.. Then the tea, coffee, hot chocolate and fruit juices on offer. Not your usual real fruit juice but this is standard in most European hotels - so why moan? Oh and the toaster actually toasted on first go - which is a great surprise for most European hotels haha :) There is mini-bar in the room. I did not use it, but the prices seemed pretty reasonable for hotel prices. There's space in there to store a drink or two of your own also.. There is also a safe in the wall (a bit odd to be fair - but does the job!). The TV only has a few channels - but I didn't go away to watch TV, so was not needed. It would be nice if they provided small toiletries I agree as opposed to the dispenser by the sink and shower (premier Inn style). But most people bring their own surely..? The only issue I really had in the room was the lead from the kettle wouldn't fit into the plug if on the table so I had to put it on the floor.. The Wifi worked perfectly throughout my stay in the room. The lobby area is bright and spacious and there are plenty of leaflets for trips and the local sites. There appears to be a bar set up, but it is not used.. that would be an added bonus after all that walking to have a nice drink in the bar! The staff that were on Reception while I was in and out were friendly and informative. They gave me some good tips about what to see and how to get about. I'll be back again with friends and would definitely stay again. The small market outside is set up for Christmas at the moment and one of the stalls has some great mulled wine for about £1.50 - very strong !!
Rather big room, basic but clean. Nice breakfast with a lot of choice. Several tram lines stop almost at the doorstep of the hotel so easy access but also bit of noise. 2 metro lines are a few hundred meters walk. Connection to public transport is great and fast to almost every part of the city. Nice little market in front of the hotel and a few nice dining options close by.
Just stayed 3 nights at this hotel. I think it is typical of what I would have expected in prague. A little old fashioned but it was clean and had everything we needed. Would have been better if the shower was high up rather than half way down the wall. We were dissapointed being on the 5th floor and having a skylight window so no view. It was very noisy at night with the trams constantly running through the night and people shouting outside. Our T.V didn't work but that was minor. The breakfast was plentifull and pretty good choice. The location is good and walking distance to the main towns. There didn't appear to be a bar to get a drink which would have been nice to chill after a long day but the mini bar was fully stocked. The staff were friendly. Also it would be good if the travel operators mentioned the city tax that had to be paid on departure which we wern't expecting. Although only a total of 90cks just a good job we still had some money left to pay it. I loved prague and would deffinately go back but if i went back to this hotel i would request a quieter room.
In short - Incomprehensible to me how this Hotel got such a high reviews. In my opinion, There is nothing in this Hotel that a 4 stars hotel should have, barely 3 – I felt like I fell to a tourist trap, friendly English-speaking receptionists, but most of them won't do what they need or asked to do, comfortable bed but horrible noise from the street until the wee hours of the morning, Terrible room maintenance, including black mold in the shower, only look like the room is clean, poor breakfast , and finally I do not recommended to order transportation from or to the hotel or anywhere else. . Further details- We order transport from the airport, it cost 21 Euros (the driver insisted we pay in Euros), (on the way back, 320 CZK -about 12 Euros by Uber) The driver had not stopped yawning , not pay attention to the road, texted and drives, spoke on the phone, and the van was unbelievably dirty, big spots on the seats and sticky floor , Including a big chunk of gum, we had only 20 euros bills, the driver wanted to give us change in Krones with a gap of 8% profit (to him) and then he offered us a credit card payments with a Commission of 7%-luckily in the hotel reception the were a few coins in euros that we could give him. In another case, we wanted to go to a restaurant that we ordered and something with the Uber application didn`t work, so we ordered a ride from the hotel, again a van (look like the same van but more clean) we paid 330 CZK for a 10 minute's drive (on the way back from the same place we paid 95 CZK with Uber). From the beginning the stay in the hotel was odd, the receptionist asked for the full payment before even getting a key, our room was not ready (we came at 1PM), We wanted to start our vacation so we ask to take care of our luggage, the luggage were taking behind the counter in clear site for anyone to see, not in a baggage room The Air conditioning is controlled from the front desk, it had a sticker that said- ask the front desk if you want to change the temperature –we did, also we ask to leave the AC open at night, after finding out they turned it off , with Windows closed the room is stuffy, with open windows it`s impossible to sleep as a result of the street noise, every morning and evening we asked, we got promised but nothing. Our room was in the 4th floor but it was facing the street, even with windows close we heard every second the squeaking of passing trams, a lot of police cars or ambulances until the wee hours of the morning (there are night tram after midnight), the silence was between 2 to 5 a.m.. So we almost didn't slept throughout all 5 days of our stay, we had very difficult time to enjoy our trip, because we were so tired all the time. What kind of a 4 stars hotel does not provide some toiletries? Or at least hair shampoo? Turns out, this hotel is. Also, already on our second day, the soap tanks next to the sink and in the shower run out, we mention it, early in the morning, to the front desk, but in vain, we took one from the front desk and replace it ourselves and the second one was replaced only after we threw the empty tank to the trash. At first sight the room seemed to be clean every day, bad was made, trash can emptied, but when we look closer, we saw the same cover with a hole in it, all five days ,in some days we were given torn towels , some had a different Hotel logo, Other than that, a visible soap spot on the shower floor stays there after "room cleaning". The shower had a very small shower head, but the main problem is the horrible maintenance - A problem with the showers door cause big puddle on the floor in every shower, but the worst is black mold on the walls, the doors and, in fact, almost everywhere in the shower. Also terrible is breakfast, not varied, not tasty and the coffee got cold very fast. Pay attention to the small Vault in the wall, to aging a key you have to go ask the reception. And finally, the good things in the hotel: 1. Comfortable bed and large closet (no shelves) and drawers 2. The nearby metro and trams have many lines leading directly to many places in Prague 3. There was one remarkable receptionist that gave a really exceptional service , (unfortunately I can't remember her name, she had blonde hair)after complain about our TV for 2 days, she came up to our room and checked what's wrong with the T.V. remote control (turn out – low battery's) She went and came up again to our room to change the battery`s herself) 4 .The price is attractive for a 4 stars hotel but as I describe it`s not really in a 4 star hotel level.
