    3-star hotel

    by

    Hotel Union, Prague 2 - Nusle, Ostrcilovo nam. 4. Tel.: +420 261 214 812, fax: +420 261 214 20. Quite affordable and the rooms are very quiet aside from being clean. One station away from the botanical garden and about 20 minutes and you'll be at the Malostranska and Staromestska. You buy a 24-hour card for 100 Czech crowns and you can use the metro, tram and bus. Enjoy!

    Unique Quality: Nice restaurant, clean and quiet rooms, professional staffs

    Great Value Accommodation Option

    by

    I found this hotel on a frantic, last-minute dash through the hotel sites about five days before I was due to travel. It came up under the categories of 3* and close to Central Station. Although obviously not within walking distance of the centre, the reviews from people who'd stayed there were so favourable that I decided to go with it. They weren't wrong. My single room was actually a double,with a nice view overlooking the street. The decor is a little old-fashioned but rooms come with TV and en-suite plus the hotel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Staff are really helpful and go to a lot of trouble with directions, transport advice etc. It's situated in Vysehrad which has a lot of interesting features, notably its cemetery and is quite a pleasant tranquil place to find yourself in, especially if like me, you are arriving at night on your own.

    It takes about 20 minutes to get into town and you have a choice of metro or tram. Because I was lugging a wheely bag after me and didn't have a lot of time I took a taxi to the centre. The hotel arranged this and there was a fixed price.

    Unique Quality: The most unique quality of The Union Hotel, Prague, was undoubtedly the quality of its breakfast.
    I would have been grateful for a cup of coffee in a hotel which cost me EUR43 for the night but instead I was treated to a right royal buffet . Poachd eggs, bacon, white puding, sausage and crispy-fried potatoes were available at the hot counter and on the central table, fresh fruit salad, cereals, juices, multiple choices of breads, jams and other preserves. There were also several large platters of confectionary and yes, I was a pig and had a doughnut. Look at the photo and ask yourself if you wouldn't have done the same thing.By the way the reason the dining room is deserted is that I was the first person to appear for breakfast at 7.00a.m.

    I would unreservedly recommend this hotel to others and was infact amazed to find such a good bargain in a city as popular as Prague. In case I did not already make it clear, breakfast is included in the cost of your room.

    Directions: This hotel is in Vysehrad which is a little further south of the centre than Nove Mesto. Just ask directions from the metro station. Ostrcilcovo Namestie is quite clearly marked on the map. The nearest bridge is Zeleznicni most.

Accommodation Outside Central Prague

by Archway

Hi. I wonder if anyone could recommend any reasonable hotels on the outskirts of Prague or even in a town close to Prague.

We'll be travelling to Prague by car, and do not wish to take it into central Prague. Ideally we are looking for a hotel that is about 20 - 30 minutes from central Prague.

I'm probably asking for too much, but it would be good if the hotel was in walking distance (10 minutes or so) of a metro stop or station and in a safe area.

Many thanks

Its me again :)

When I toured eastern europe, I was on a Cosmos tour.

The hotels they used were all on the outskirts of the cities, and generally close to metro stations. Budapest is the only one I can unfortunatly remember the name of.

But try getting hold of a cosmos brochure and researching the hotels they use. Its worth a try. You could also try other tour company brochures.

just my 2 cents worth

Try Hotel Union - a 3-star hotel. Across the street, Tram 18 and 24 will bring you to the city. The area is safe and the hotel itself is cozy, clean and very nice. The staffs are very professional too and the restaurant has the best or coldest Pilsner. I've to look for the business card. I was there three days ago and I was pleased with my stay.

Try this link to nice 3* Hotel Frydl, or if you prefer a lower priced 2*, check the accomodation tip on my VT Prague page. Both hotels are in very safe areas and 20 minutes or less to city center by public transportation. If you don't like these, let me know. I know of others.

Take a look at my review on my Prague pages for Hotel Excel City. It's out of town a bit but right on bus and tram routes. Rooms are basic but clean and cheap.

Re: Accommodation Outside Central Prague

Again, thank you for the info. Both hotels are possibilities.
