this is the 3rd time we have been to Prague and the second time in this hotel, the rooms are pretty basic, no kettle/iron/press etc, but there is a TV and a huge bed (with seperate duvets) and enough space to sit and sleep comfortably. It's located in a residential area, with around 10 pubs within a 5 minute walk, the tram stop is 10 mins away taking you straight to town. We liked the fact that we weren't in the middle of town all the time, it's really quiet where the hotel is, and there aren't many tourists at all. The restaurants nearby are superb and the staff at the pubs are really friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this to anyone who just wants to see the sights, drink, smoke (you can still smoke inside pubs and restaurants!) and basically just relax. In the town there are plenty of sights, and the hotel can arrange a river boat cruise with a car to pick you up from the hotel and drop you off again. Also, they have their own taxi to take you back to the airport. We will be back next year!
Our first visit to reception on checking in was a delight, receiving a very friendly welcome. Everything we needed to know about the hotel was explained to us in very good English... We were given a credit card type key for our room safe and the password for free wifi which we got everywhere in the hotel. We set the wifi up in our room on the 4th floor, but found it didn't work on the ground floor, we had to change the settings as there were 3 different choices which use the same password. The beds were really comfy, the rooms are very clean and serviced every day.
The choice at breakfast was very comprehensive with something for everyone. From coffee, tea, various juices, cereal, fresh fruit, toast, fresh bread rolls and bread, jams, ham, cheese, scrambled or boiled eggs, baked beans, ham & bacon, we had a different type of sausage each day of our stay and there were the odd different items each time too.
As you leave the hotel and walk down the hill opposite, cross the road and purchase your tram tickets in the tobacco shop. The tram from this stop will take you into the centre ( four stops) which only takes around 10 mins. You will only need the 24 CZK ticket for this.
There are plenty of good restaurants and bars in the area which are reasonably priced, we did eat in the centre but found some of the places a little overpriced. Be careful in taxi's as some will overcharge. Get e hotel to advise you on this. This hotel will be our first choice next time in Prague.
I was happy with this hotel. It was comfortable, staff were helpful. Local shops nearby are cheaper than buying drinks in hotel. Breakfast was fine. I decided to walk to the city centre, it was a brisk walk but you get to walk through the real streets, not just the touristy bits. It is all straight roads so can't really get lost. If on own, I'd not walk back too late though, I felt safe but best to be careful!
