Very basic hotel outside the center
The first time we visited Prague in 2001, we stayed at this hotel, which is located in Prague 8, relatively close to Florenc metro station.
What can I say about this hotel? The rooms are very "basic" with a bed a cupboard and a TV. We went in November and the heating was not working...
Since I did not feel safe leaving the car on the street (foreign license plate) I rented a place in the garage.
If you look at the website, you are presented with an artist's impression (i.e., drawing) of what the hotel looks like instead of a photo... If you then select a language, you are presented with a very small photo taken from behind a tree showing ONLY the hotel building.
This is because the street looks quite bad, all buidlings were in bad shape and looked quite sad.
The service was very bad, everyone had a very angry face, I was almost scared of talking to them.
Check-in: The room was prepaid, but she could not find the fax from the trabel agency, so she did not want to give us the room... She finally found it and we got the keys. We were forced to leave our passports (all 4 of us!) which is actually illegal, if I am not mistaken...
At check-out, we left the rooms but wanted to go for a walk. The lady at the reception came storming screaming "YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THE PHONECALLS". I just told her that we were not leaving and that she had both our passports and that my car was locked in their garage. She continued screaming and insisting, but after explaining the situation to her about 3 times, she finally got it.
Overall, the rooms are not very good, the location is far from perfect. There is a 10 minutes-walk to the metro station through a very unfriendly-looking neighbourhood (nothing happened to us, but...) and I checked the prices again when we went to Prague in 2004 and the rooms were 3 times more expensive. A double now costs 100 Eur!
Check my Hotel Florenc tip, it is located in the same neighbourhood, but right next to the metro station and with much friendlier staff.
Unique Quality: none.
