Recent guest reviews
We stayed for a long weekend to visit Prague and the Christmas markets. Although the hotel says Wenceslas Square it is a good ten minute walk from the main city areas so be aware. There is a tram stop very close however and they are great for getting about! The hotel is lovely - comfy bed, warm and a great base for visiting the city. Breakfast was the only slight disappointment, there was no organisation, no staff present and too small for the number of guests. It is continental with a limited amount of hot food but we found plenty to eat. Tea and coffee is available at reception at a small cost, one recommendation for the hotel is to stock English breakfast tea at reception, a favourite for many after a cold day sightseeing! I would certainly recommend the ibis to anyone visiting Prague, reasonably priced, great location and everything you need for a city break!
A typical budget range hotel which was good value; yes the bedrooms are small, but when you're in town as a tourist all you really need is somewhere to rest as other than for sleeping you are not spending much time there. The room was comfortable with adequate storeage space; the only improvements I would make would be to include hand towels as well as bath towels in the bathroom and perhap provide tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Breakfast was more than adequate to set us up for the day exploring the city with a wide choice of breakfast comestibles. Yes the hotel is not located in the centre of town, and some may find the inclusion of Wenceslas Square in its name misleading, however basic research before booking showed where it was located so for us the short walk to Wenceslas Square was not an issue. It is also in close proximity, (approximately 5 minutes walk), to excellent public transport links, (tram and metro). All in all we were very pleased with out stay and would certainly consider using this hotel again if we return to Prague.
The hotel seems to be OK for budget category, but the encounter with personnel spoils the impression. I thought probably my experience was an exception, though management admitted they worked on service improvement. And in near future be prepared that room key does not open the door, that check-in would take up to 20 minutes, and your approach for advice about dinner and attractions nearby would be unanswered. The room was OK, small though properly cleaned every day. Water pressure in the bath was weak and water always poured into the flour despite all our trick to prevent that. Location is good. There is good bakery Paul nearby for breakfast and lunch. The tram station to the center is meters away from entrance, and to reach the old town is 15 minutes tram drive. So could be a good hotel after they train their staff properly.
Good clean room, the bathroom smelled terrible the moment we stepped into it. The beds were nice and there was lots of space for us to put our stuff. Loved the breakfast in the morning, didnt like it was a bit further from the city center. Walk to the bus and then the bus will drop you off. Would stay again.
Room: As with usual Ibis properties, the room is compact but warm and comfortable. there was no view from the room as such. The amenities included TV, working desk with chair, open storage area to hang clothes / keep baggage. Surprisingly safe to keep personal belongings was missing. Bathroom: Neat, clean and tidy with a separate shower area. However, the body wash was never filled in. Ideally this is something to expect from the housekeeping staff during the cleaning of the room. But seems its not part of the checklist. Restaurant / Dining Area: Spacious to accommodate 50+ guests. The breakfast buffet was a wide spread of breads, fruits, jams, cold meat, cakes and juice. Staff : The staff at the front office are courteous but can certainly help with more smiles. Overall, the stay is very comfortable and warm with Wenceslas square within walking distance. The famous tram no 22 which passes thru all tourist stops is just 2 min walk away and so is the central metro I .P. Pavlova.
Check in worked well. Room basic but comfortable. Breakfast was acceptable but it seemed to take a long time for staff to clear tables which became a real problem when the restaurant was busy. 10-15 minutes walk to Wenceslas Square. Great WiFi. I think a guest’s experience of this hotel will depend on the price paid. I got a good deal including breakfast but I would never pay the amount required if you just turn up. I’ve now stayed at all three Prague hotels and they are all basically the same so just choose the one with the best deal.
This Hotel is very well priced especially if booked via the web in advance and as such I am going to balance what would have been a fairly negative review against the very fair price we paid. The Hotel is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the start of Wenceslas Square so so I don't think its title is a particularly true description of where it is located but then again you will see a lot of the hotels using a similar type of title on your walk. The road which leads you down to the square is extremely busy but is served by an excellent traffic light controlled crossing system, you never have to wait very long to cross. The room is quite small but probably the right size for the price I was disappointed with two things which related to the room firstly the bed(s). We booked a double room and what we got was two single beds pushed together with two single duvets. These beds I didn't find very comfortable. They have toppers which have a tendency to slide to one side and caused my wife to fall out of bed one night ( I know I shouldn't have laughed!). The other thing that no kettle is provided, if like us you like to get back to your room for a brew then I suggest you take a travel kettle. Breakfast is OK and there generally is sufficient to fill yourself up its just a bit chaotic. The staff are very young and there sometimes seems to be a lack of leadership as things run out and could have been topped up before they got to that stage and can take a while to get sorted. In general the staff are very friendly and helpful, the hotel has a policy that it will put anything right within 15 minutes and I think it was pretty much kept to at all times, its just that 15 minutes is sometimes a bit long when you are trying to get breakfast. My overview would be that if cost is the over riding factor for your trip to Prague then use this hotel as it is fine, it isn't quite to the standard of Premier Inn or Travelodge but still fine. If you have the money to stay somewhere closer to Wenceslas Square or Old Town I think I would do so
On check in they take a pre authorisation for the cost of the stay. Then on check out hit your card for the full amount. When you challenge and ask the hotel to get the matter sorted out it falls on deaf ears. I have now reported the hotel to the police and am claiming a fraud case against them. This has resulted in all other Accor bookings been cancelled until this matter is sorted out. The hotel is been reported to the Prague Tourist Office and the Czech Tourist Ministry.
15-20 min walk from Charles Bridge where there is lots going on. This area is quite quiet in comparison although there is a Starbucks, Costa, McDonald’s and KFC right next to the hotel and also a few local restaurants. We always had breakfast out and the hotel was good for a short break as we were out of the hotel most of the time and was very similar to your standard travelodge. There wasn’t any coffee making facility but everything else was good, fresh towels everyday and the room and bathroom was clean. We do recommend!
For a short business trip in Praha we used this hotel again. Great location close to nice pubs and restaurants and only 3 metro stops away from our morning meetings. Close to highway and trainstation. Staff was really helpful at check-in and checkout. Strange name since the square is 10 minutes walking away. Only drawback was the relative high temperature in the room at arrival.
