Red and Blue Design Hotel Prague4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I liked the room design of this hotel - simple, modern and adequate. It is about 10 min to Charels bridge and all the trams so the location is great. But the most memorable is the breakfast wow --- you don't get that in America in a $100/night hotel. I took a video to bring back home to impress my family. Delicate pastries, freshly squeezed juices (more than 5 kinds), sausages.... my words are not enough to describe my satisfaction. I have travled around the world and this one impressed me especailly with this price range. Great deal.
The good: Just a few blocks from a tram stop, where you can get to most major attractions and/or metro stops (although, trams are just as vital to getting around as the metro is... maybe more so). In a quiet neighborhood (my room overlooked a nice green park). The room was very modern, well designed, pleasant, spacious, and clean. The bathroom was spacious, clean, and very modern. Free wifi, personal safe, flatscreen TV, and two windows with great airflow. The staff was young and friendly. All spoke good English. They said "hi" and "bye" every time you came and went. The breakfast room was nice. There was even an enclosed "outdoor" area for sun while eating, which was a nice touch. The food was adequate enough. The bad: Can't really think of any. The entire stay was smooth and painless. I'd definitely stay again, as well as recommend.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was excellent - close to Petrin Hill & Old Town.
After reading all the glowing reviews, we were looking forward to our stay. I agree 100% that the front desk staff is very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, I have to disagree with almost everything else that has been said. This hotel falls short in many ways. Here are some things you should know. -No tissues in either our room or our friend’s, so I guess they don’t have them. You should expect to blow your nose with toilet paper. Tissues are a basic item one would expect in any hotel room. -The sink faucet is poorly designed making it impossible to wash your face without getting water everywhere. See my photo. -The towels are small and of cheap quality. My fitness club provides better towels. - The beddings are cheap and not that comfortable. - No currency exchange at the desk. I have never stayed at a hotel overseas that did not offer this. - The woman who runs breakfast is militant. We called her the KGB. She will require you to show your envelope that your room key card came in at check-in. See photo. Do not throw this envelope out like most do upon entering your room. KGB will not let you eat breakfast without it. -Speaking of breakfast, it is of poor quality and selection. We actually paid for breakfast at a local café instead of eating at this hotel. -The location is not ideal, despite what other reviews suggest. If you are a tourist, you will most likely be spending most of your time in Old Town across the river. This makes it very impractical to drop off gifts in your room, or to get cleaned up for dinner. Trust me, it is a hassle and you will not want to do it more than once per day. Yes, there is a tram system, but it is slow and annoying. We mostly walked everywhere. My suggestion is to spend the extra money and find a nicer place in Old Town. We had drinks one evening at the Buddha-Bar Hotel and Lounge and out of curiosity, I asked to see a room. Wow! What a difference. Sorry I booked Red and Blue Design.
It is not all that is advertised. We would have liked the DVD slot on the TV as advertised. The bar is expensive. Once the sofa bed is down you keep tripping around it. The breakfast was great. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The Charles Bridge is twice as far as advertised.
We spent 5 days touring Prague in early September. Weather was good. Red and Blue design hotel is a very nice hotel located close to most of the tourist spots, within walking distance. Close to tram stop. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bath room had a nice big tub and a shower that had two kinds of shower heads which was bit tricky for us in the beginning as we were not familiar with that type. Our maid was nice with very pleasant ready smile. It is a very well maintained hotel. Breakfast buffet was a great deal for the money and was very good. The Chef was very attentive and menu changed every day. Waitresses were busy as a bee, constantly cleaning and replenishing the dishes that were laid out tastefully - feast not only for the tongue but also for the eye. Vi fi was working well all the time which was great -after our experience in the London hotel. We want to go back to Prague again and will definitely stay in this hotel.
Spent four nights in Prague after 13 day visits to the Balkans. A very pleasant stay with no surprises as described by other reviews. Clean, new, comfortable beds and great location away from the noise and hassle of the downtown, but with a tram stop within 200 meters that runs into the city for around $1 per ticket. Has 36 inch flat screen TV, Hot water pot with in room tea and coffee. Staff very helpful, booking taxi and selling tram tickets.Great breakfast. Glad we booked here.
I stayed six nights with two adult daughters in a large room on the back of the building.We were extremely comfortable. All furniture, bedding, bathroom fixtures were top-notch modern design.There was a mini-bar, hot water kettle and a safe large enough for a laptop. The staff were charming, well- trained and fluent in English. They arranged taxi drivers at a fixed rate so we didn't have to deal with the famously larcenous Prague taxis. This hotel is on a park at the edge of the tourist area. It is a pleasant retreat from the tourist mobs in Old Town--a long walk from some sights but this is not a problem because a tram stop is nearby. The trams are fun and easy. The "Artisan Restaurant' nearby is excellent and reasonable with a beautiful garden terrace. It was so quiet and relaxing after sight-seeing that we ate there five times!
We stayed at the Red and Blue design hotel at the end of our 5 week trip in Europe. This hotel was the most comfortable and had the largest rooms of any of the places we stayed. The bathroom was very large and very modern with both a large tub and a great shower. The staff was very friendly and helpful and knew the answers to all of our questions. The breakfast was very complete and held in a bright, comfortable area. The hotel is easy to get to using public transportation from both the main train station and the airport. The Charles Bridge, the Castle, the old town square and many other places of interest are within walking distance. There is a large park right across the street. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood. We spent a wonderful three nights there.
Great staff,great breakfast,and great room.Just one block from public transportation.
This hotel is brand spanking new, in fact they were still working on parts of it while we were there but that didn't take away from the great time we had in Prague. There was plenty of parking if that is an issue for you and the parking is free and once we parked we didn't have to move our car the entire stay. The rooms were very big a lot bigger than most european hotel rooms, and everything had a modern feel to it. The only thing I didn't like were the comforters, we had 2 half comforters for a king size bed. The hotel was maybe 2 blocks away from the street car so we hopped on that and went everywere. The street cars are great. We also found one of the best mexican restaurants called the Cantina it was only 2 stops away from the hotel on the street car. It was so good we went there for dinner every night. We had a great time at this hotel, the breakfast wasn't the best but it was enough to get you going in the morning. We would definately stay at this hotel again.
