A nice boat hotel on the Vltava river

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 5, 2009

My girlfriend and I stayed at Botel Admiral for 1 night during a weekend break in Prague in January 2009.

This 3* hotel is a converted boat on the Vltava river and rooms are in the form of cabins. We paid 1,600 CZK (54 GBP) for a twin cabin with en-suite facilities and with breakfast included.

We booked our stay through www.easytobook.com and paid the whole bill upon arrival at the hotel.

Location

Botel Admiral is moored up against the banks of the Vltava river in the Praha 5 region of the city. It is located opposite the Vysehrad area of the city and is almost exactly opposite the famous Dancing House (Tančící dům).

Charles Bridge and the Mala Strana area are around 15 minutes walk away.

Bedroom

Our twin cabin was small, but was comfortable and, importantly at that time of year, was very well heated. There was a radiator directly behind the bed.

Apart from the bed, which took up the majority of the tiny cabin, furnishings were rather sparse. There was a small wardrobe and quite a few shelves above and besides the bed.

A small TV set was mounted in the top corner of the room, with channels including Eurosport, CNN and a variety of Czech and German channels.

The en-suite cubicle was tiny, with a shower, toilet and washbasin. The power shower was excellent, with high water pressure and an abundance of hot water. We were provided with fresh towels and bars of soap.

The hotel wasn’t very busy in the middle of winter and so we were given a cabin with a river view without even having to request one. Our room was only just above water level, so we could have opened the window and almost touched the flowing river. We were also able to watch the ducks swimming right by our window.

Breakfast

A very good Continental buffet breakfast was served in the lovely dining room. The dining area had a nautical theme, with ornate décor and lots of dark wooden tables and chairs. It was rather plush.

The choice of food was fairly extensive and included cereals, bread, cakes and pastries, pretzels, yoghurts, soup, cold meats, a cheese platter, salad, sausages and fruit. Drinks included orange juice, coffee and, to my girlfriend’s delight, a large choice of teas.

General

There is a nautical theme throughout the hotel, from the reception area to the dining room. You always have the feeling of being on a boat, although there is no movement so you don’t have to worry about sea sickness! We even saw one member of staff in a full captain’s uniform.

We checked out of the hotel early in the morning and had an evening flight. As the hotel was almost empty, the receptionist offered to let us keep our room on for a heavily discounted price (perhaps 400 CZK?) for the rest of the day. This wasn’t necessary as we were going to spend the whole day out exploring, so instead we stored our luggage, free of charge, in the storage room.

We arranged our transfer back to the airport with the hotel, using the hotel’s minibus. It was somewhat more expensive than the transfer offered by Cedaz minibuses, but it was more convenient for us and we had the flexibility to return to the hotel whenever we chose for our transfer.

A good value boat hotel, just a short walk from Charles Bridge and the centre of Prague. Small, cozy, en-suite cabins and an excellent breakfast. Recommended if you fancy something a little different.

That's a real old steamship moore4d on the bank of the river not far from the city centre.
Rooms are comfortable and there is also a rstaurant.
The deck is converted into a terrace and there is a nice view over the city.

Unique Quality: Unique location, on the water, close to the city centre.

Directions: Metro station. Andel

The botel Admiral is docked south of the city centre of Prague, about opposite the modern building called " Ginger & Fred "

The city may easily be reached by tram.

Unique Quality: Admiral Botel might be a solution for ships-lovers like I am .

For more infos about this botel I made a link to their homepage !

On my pic the Botel is on the left side of the river, and in the background St.Vitus , so you may get an idea about the distance to the city

Directions: South of Palackeho most on the left bank of the river
