I can say that just positive things about this hotel. The Imperial art deco has really the spirit of the ancient art noveau. Expecially in his internal architecture and in to the rooms. The hall is big and spacious, with a bar close to it (much more expensive then other bars in Prague, but it’s the bar of a 5 stars hotel). There are 2 internet points close to the hall into the hotel. The staff is absolutely of high level. They don’t speak Italian but all of them speak English and they are really very helpful for everything you need. My room was at the second floor (not great view but who cares?) and big enough with desks and guardarobe of the beginning of the last century, like the entire hotel. The bathroom had the “warm floor” (I mean that with a switch you can choose to have or not to have the floor of the bathroom warm). In the hotel you can use Jacuzzi, sauna and a fitness room. I didn’t try the fitness room but I checked it and it was more then 1 machine for making weights, so it’s good. The iacuzzi and the sauna obiusvly are in common with other guests. The breakfast was included in my trip so I don’t know how much it costs if you want to do it. Anyway I can say that is big enough and it’s served into an amazing art noveau place. Just, if you choose breakfast in your trip, don’t forget that at 10:30(sharp!!) they close (but it remains open for people that are not of the hotel).
Another important thing is that the hotel is close to the city center but in the same time it’s not into the noise, so I think it’s perfect also as position. Anyway there is the tram stop at about 50 meters, so no worry if u don’t want to walk.
At the end I can say: it’s really a good hotel. Great position, great staff, great architecture (you can check my photos but I’m sure you’ll do your own pics inside the hotel). When I’ll return in Prague I’ll return in this hotel for sure
The spa, the restaurant 5 stars, close to the city center but just outside the touristic area
Hotel Atlantic is situated directly in the heart of Prague; just around the corner is the Municipal House and the main Prague shopping Boulevard. You can reach the Old Town by Charles Bridge and other places of interest by foot within several minutes. There is also a subway stop “Namesti Republiky” line “B” just 150 meters from the hotel door. Free internet and excellent break fast makes this the wisest decisions we made and superior to every hotel we stayed in Western europe.
Great Rooms-great Breakfast free-great staff-Great location-Free Internet what more coild one ask for??
We went to the hotel's summer garden to have dinner.
We had a rather old waiter, who seemed very pleasant at first.
We asked for the wine list to choose some czech wine. He pretended that he does not understand what we were asking, and finally presented a bottle of wine which he pretended it was 315 CZK.
We had some three bottle, and at the and asked for the check and left a good tip for him. We received the check hand written.
Next day we went in the same place to have also the dinner. It wasn't the old waiter's shift and we were served by an young lady. We asked for the wine list when we saw that the same wine we drank the day before was 200 CZK, not 315.
Also, at the end the check was typed by the cash register.
We realized that the old man ripped us of.
So be aware and avoid this place.
The old man in the picture is the waiter i am talking about.
Great view, but ...
I stayed at the Elf hostel Feb 2008;
There was building work going on (though that was 2008 so it must be finished by now) and people can smoke in the common areas, it's definately cheap. They have single and double rooms available.
The free breakfast is a little random, could be a doughnut one morning, cerial the next and a sandwich roll the next. But there's free tea and coffee all day, kitchenette areas where you can cook for yourself, very cheep beer from their reception fridge, free internet. I had a great time there.
Clean rooms with wooden bunk beds and lockers in the rooms, you need your own padlock.
It is a walk to the centre area but easily done.
In the low season you get the 5th night free
Free tea & coffee all day
24 hour reception
Great out door seating area which I'd have used if it wasn't February!
In June 2009 I visited Prague and stayed at the Rokoko Hotel in Wenceslas Square. It is not exactly Stare Mesto but is very near, even walking. Also, there are a lot of people around at night we always felt safe. Not only it is near the Historic Centre, but also has a metro station about 2 minutes from hotel.
The site is http://www.hotel-rokoko.info and we enjoyed our stay there; breakfast is not top notch, but is ok. We found our room always clean and it was comfortable.
OK I got lost the first time but it's not hard to navigate after awhile.
At EUR35/night with a good breakfast - this is the best hotel I've stayed at in my europe trip.
Great room design, sort of ikea meets Daryl Savage. Huge room, 2 single beds joined together (what's with europe and joined single beds?). Spanking bathroom with tub! in black and white design too, with hairblower, and nice fixtures. Everything seems new or just taken cared of. The wall is painted in white with black-design laminates (tell me what do you call those designs? and where can I buy those?). Furnishings are really nice and neat, so comfortable bed, large soft pillows, huggy comforters, sleepy white beds, everything is in black & white. There's a balcony overlooking a big courtyard shared by other buildings around it, where I hang my wet clothes. Flat panel TV on the wall, heater during cold months.
The electronic card key is also your key to get in the main entrance. The reception staff (Natasha and the other one I forgot the name) are so helpful, well at first they seem to be a bit snobbish, but when you start to converse and be nice (too), they will be very helpful to you. They even write the names of the tram station where I want to go cuz it's hard to pronounce really.
Breakfast is good and the breakfast room is likewise in artsy design. The breakfast lady staff though seems to need to be coached on how to smile - don't get me wrong, she's not rude either.
Location is a bit out of the center but tram station (Vapenka) is 2 minutes from the hotel and you can reach all the sights and the centrum in 10 to 15 minutes. Neighborhood is safe and there are stores and restaurants nearby, pizza shop is stone-throw away from the hotel.
TIP: hard to connect to the internet inside the room but the trick is - bring your laptop at the lobby or just the first flight of stairs and try to connect the WIFI from there and when you're already connected, go back to your room, the connection will disconnect once you turn off your laptop.
Would I recommend this hotel.. seriously...NO! I would just love to keep it to myself - selfish am I?
Enjoyed my stay in Prague...Love this place!
Nice and neat black&white design, comfortable bed, huge room, nice breakfast, clean bathroom, friendly staff.
The Hotel Roma is a very nice hotel that was built recently from the remains of (what I was told) of an old, run down building. There is a large, comfortable reception area, with two computers available for free. The staff are very helpful. The breakfast was complete with pretty much anything one would want. There was an automated espresso machine where it took a few tries to get it right. I would have preferred and hand pulled espresso. My room was large, but there were only two small windows looking over some rooftops.
The 2 foot shark swimming around in the aquarium by the reception desk was a nice touch.
We stayed in this little gem in Prague 2 for three nights in November 2009.
There are only 19 rooms so the service is very attentive. Staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and big (see photos), lovely beds and pillows/duvets, bathrooms the big as well (no shower curtain which was a bit strange), although the actual bath was tiny, I'm 5"7 and I couldn't sit in it properly. But the water was HOT!
There is tons of storage space in the rooms, 2 massive wardrobes and two chest of drawers. TV with German and Czech channels and CNN. We had a triple room (a single bed and a double) so we also had a table and chairs and two arm chairs.
The room was toasty warm, the radiators have thermostats to control it.
Breakfast was also nice. Plenty of different breads to choose from, coffee/cappuccino/espresso machine, teas, juices, cereal, yogurt, fruit, cold meats and cheese, salady bits.
There is free Wi-fi in the breakfast room.
It's about a five minute walk from the nearest metro station I.P Pavlova, on the red line C. Various trams (22, 16, 10, 6 and 4) run along the main street Jecna.
Take the left exit out of the metro station, straight on, across the main street, take Katerinska to the left, another 3 minutes and the hotel is your your right at the second junction.
Myself and my girlfriend needed a place to stay for one night in Prague.She found the Cortina hostel and judging by the pictures on their site we decided to book our night there as it looked good enough.Their directions on their site to get to the hostel was straight forward.We found out later the directions were not complete due reconstruction on the tram line therefore instead of one tram to the hostel we had to transfer with the bus too.They failed to mention this on their site.When we eventually got to the hostel we found out to our dismay that what they advertise on their site in the way of pictures of the rooms was a complete lie.The rooms where right out of the gulag.You wouldn't put a horse in the room never mind human beings.For the beds they must've removed 2 doors somewhere else in the Stazi styled hostel and called them beds. We were under the impression we were getting a private room with bathroom but we were told that those "BETTER ROOMS" were occupied by a larger group even though we booked such a room. We were told we were notified of such change thru email which we weren't. The t.v didn't work and there was no soap in the bathroom or towels. No even thank you and goodbye on leaving. Complete dump. Avoid like the plague.
The door to exit the place.
We did arrive late to Prague. It was a very busy weekend. We did asked some hotels as we were walking through the city.. but all was full. We did find a Tourist Information Center and there we did ask for a place to stay.
They give us an apartment. 50 Euros per night. They told us it was only 10 minutes away from there, and that was the very center. We did pay there a 20% for the reservation, and go to look for the place.
We did had the car there... and it was very difficult to find the place with the map. I think it will be the last time I do this. We did find the place the owner told us that our apartment was in another place... in total the place was about 30-40 minutes from the center walking... it was not bad but it was not what they told us in the tourist information center.
The apartment was out the tourists streets, it was APARTMENT 2. Was very quiet and big, but the beds where really uncomfortable... but all in all I did though it was a good place to stay... no other people and very clean.
If you get the apartment that is really in the center APARTMENT 1...its just in a wonderful place for visiting everything walking
We did realize the last day that it was a wonderful tram going to few meters from the apartment...
The owner was friendlig...
The problem when you go to a new place... when you don't know anything about it... its difficult to decide which place will be ok for staying... now that I have been there I will look next time walking where to stay, because there were thousands of apartments and hotels everywhere
This is a very cheap solution. There are many student dorms / hostels offering very convenient accomodation in single or double rooms, some even offer appartements. Many of them are restored and refurbished. Though many have shared bathrooms, they usually offer a bit more expensive rooms with own sanitary facilities.
The prices start at around 400 Czech crowns (cca 16 EUR) per night in a single room, 600 CZK for a double room. A room with own shower costs around 660 - 1000 CZK (25 - 38 EUR).
Good webpage is www.kam.cuni.cz , if you scroll down, you'll find a limited English version. If there's anyone to help you with Czech language just scroll to the bottom down and click on " kontaktni formular" highlighted in red, and you'll find an enquiry form, which you can use to book directly. It's very easy and you pay after at check-in. Otherwise call the central booking contact phone number provided further below.
If you're looking for this type of a cheap accomodation in a special location in Prague, click on the link below to find very helpful instructions also in English on how to get to a chosen hostel by public transport from the airport or main train stations:
Very cheap accomodation, suitable for young travellers, school groups, backpackers. Dorms are around all Prague, many of them very close to the centre.
I don't recall the exact name of the place we stayed in Prague (one of the Aparthotels I think...), but it was one of the apartment deals. Basically, we got a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment to ourselves for a few nights at a cost that ended up being cheaper than going to a hostel. I have no complaints about it whatsoever. We got free pick up from the airport to take us to the apartment (and for a fee they will bring you back). The apartment had pretty much everything we needed, including a fridge, hot plate, tv, travel books, comfortable beds and privacy. I recommend taking this route to anyone traveling to Prague. It's definitely a unique experience and a lot more comforting if you've seen/heard about the movie "Hostel."
The location of our aparthotel was a short minutes walk from everywhere, and the whole set-up and idea itself deserves some credit as well.
I just came back from Prague, and I stayed at hostel Podoli. It's actually a dorm for Czech students, but they also give rooms to tourists. Overall, considering the prices, I found it very satisfactory. Here's my short review that may help you decide.
Location: it's in a nice and quiet residential zone. It's not in the city centre, but with the metro you can get there in 10 minutes or so. There are also trams that run all night, so you don't need to worry when staying out late at night.
Rooms: there are different types of single, double, and triple rooms available at different prices. Renovated rooms are a bit more expensive, but I guess they're much more comfortable. We stayed at the cheapest ones, which haven't changed much since the 70s - so they look, feel and smell like communism :) if you've seen a student dorm in Eastern Europe, you'll know what I mean. But it's not as bad as it sounds, it just looks a bit old and basic.
Facilities: Everything was clean. Toilets and showers are shared, and I think they are unisex. Someone had scratched "damy" (ladies) on the door leading to one of the showers, but I don't think they were serious. Toilet paper was missing sometimes.
Staff: As I told you, providing accommodation to tourists is not their main job, so don't expect much from them. They give you a room with clean sheets, and that's it. Some speak English, some don't. The girl at the reception was nice and polite, though.
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.
For more just google Prague, Praha or Prag + Botel
We were very pleased with the standard of this apartment, it was just as it was said to be on the web site http://www.praguerents .com/apartments.php
It is situated in a quiet residential street, not far from the heart of Prague city centre, near Namesti Miru, Flora and Zelivskeho. The metro is just a short bus ride away at Namesti Miru, the bus stop is right outside the apartment.
The staff speaks English, French, German and Russian and are very helpful, the apartment is safe and luxurious, fully equipped with cleaning, washing, ironing and free internet, parking and other services are available.
As a family of 6 we had loads of room and it was very clean, staff are very friendly ready to help you if needed. just happened we knew about what we were doing because we had visited several times, the transport system is brilliant and its very easy to use. Shops, restaurants and parks are beside you. one word to describe the apartment Brilliant.
