    good value accommodation


    Friendly staff with a very reasonably priced restaurant onboard.
    I always use this hotel when i stay in Prague as its location and prices make it very affordable. It is basic but comfortable.

    Unique Quality: Close to the centre with excellent views of the castle and river area.

    Directions: From the airport Vaclav Havel:
    Take a 119 bus and to the Dejvická station. There change to a Number 8 tram and then get off at the Dlouhá trída stop. Then walk back approx. 50m to the Štefánik´s bridge and you will see the hotel. (Approx. 40 minutes)

    Different, but great value


    Having stayed in apartments a little outside Prague centre on previous visits, I wanted a basic, value for money hotel option within walking distance of the Main districts and chose the Botel Albatros after getting a really good deal off GTA hotels website for £120 B& B for 5 nights for my wife and I. There were certainly many negative comments on the Albatros, and I was slightly concerned beforehand but at the end of the day I have only good things to say about the whole experience. First things first, ask for a Cabin overlooking the river (Even numbered rooms) as I did by email. The cabin itself was perfectly adequate, and although ok the bathroom was a little small, everything was clean and worked, with plenty of hot water. The cabin was cleaned every day, very quiet, warm (february stay), breakfast ok (though after 5 days it was a little bland) and staff polite and helpful. It was only a 10 minute walk to the Old Town Square, the Charles Bridge, or Wenceslas Square. The nearest metro is 5 mins away. I would certainly stay here again the next time I visit Prague

    Unique Quality: Grab an extra bread roll or two and feed the ducks and swans from your cabin window

    Directions: If you travel from the Airport by public transport, the easiest option is to get the 100 bus to Zlicin, take the Metro B to Namesti Republiky, and walk the 5 minutes up Revolucni to the River and the Botel

    Great River Views


    The Botel is pretty basic and the bathrooms are really small but it has all you need for a weekend away. Comfy clean rooms with a tv. The location is great it only takes about 15 mins and you are in the thick of the touristy stuff.

    Unique Quality: It is a boat and a hotel, its a botel!!! It is really cool looking out of your window and seeing everyone floating by on boat trips. We waved at loads of tourists from our room.

    A floating gem


    The Botel Albatross was an excellent choice, the rooms where clean and comfortable, plenty of storage for clothes etc. The bedding and towels were changed everyday. There was always hot water available for showering, bathroom was small but clean. The breakfast was good, Cold meats, cheeses, cereals, natural yoghurt etc. The staff were pleasant and attentive. I would definately recommend this botel to friends and family. I liked the Botel that much I am going back in March 2007.

    Directions: On the Vlatva river close to the Letensky Tunnel

    Basic acomadation is a great location


    The Botel Albatros location what makes it a good place to stay right on the river close to the Old Town.
    It has a recepion restaurant and a bar were you can watch the boats on the river.
    The breakfast was ok to start the day of.
    The rooms are a bit small butt clean with towels changed every day, but you will be that busy seeing Prague or drinking beer you will not be seeing much of your bedroom. We had a river view which was good.
    This is a good cheap place to stay in a good location I would go back there.

    I would read some reviews about the Botel Albatros as there are a lot off mixed different opinions about this accomadation. I myself found it met our needs but not every one would agree.

    Unique Quality: Location and the view of the river

    Directions: In Prague 1 district about 15 min walk to the Old Town Sqare.

    Botel Albatros


    This boat-hotel is docked in the northern centre of Prague, opposite the LETNA-park.

    Unique Quality: These kind of boatels always attract my attention, as ships of that kind may dock right in the middle of town and the atmosphere inside the small rooms reminds me a lot of the time, when I was working on cruiseships.

    Directions: The ship is docked between Chechuv Most and Svermuv Most along the street " Na Frantisku "

Sleep on the Water

by Kakapo2 about Albatross and other Botels

Good and cheap accommodation in Prague are the botels, they are boats on the river, next to all attractions.

I stayed at the Botel Albatross once, other ones are the Vodnik and Admiral.

You should not stay in a botel if you get dizzy easily. When you look out of the window and right onto the water it can happen that you feel like in a passing train, the water racing, or you racing LOL But you get used to it.

Botels are also quiet places, thus great for a good nights sleep.

Botel Albatros

by obaachan

I'm planning to visit Prague in March next year. I've a hotel reservation already however I came across Botel Albatros which offers very reasonable rate. I'm wondering if I should cancel my reservation at Hotel Atlantic and change to this Botel. Has anybody any opinion? I appreciate the fellow travelers' input.
By the way I am a mature woman and will travel alone.

Re: Botel Albatros

I have stayed at one of those botels (perhaps even Albatros but I do not really remember) and was very pleased with it. The location is close to the very city centre. You should just not have problems with being on the water. When you look outside the window sometimes you think you are racing - like at the railway station when you do not know if your train or the other one is rolling... The rooms are rather basic but perfectly fine. I remember the heating (as I was there at the end of winter) was a bit smelly and hot, so had to open the window from time to time.

If there is no cancellation fee for the other hotel, why not.

Re: Botel Albatros

Thank you for a quick reply. Since there's no cancellation fee, I think I will try Botel. It may be interesting change to a traditional hotel.
