Corinthia Panorama hotel is situated a few stops away from the city's center. Te metro stop is only a minute away from the hotel.
The hotel rooms are spacious , clean and fully equipped. the bathroom is large and clean. The hotel was also very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful. they speak about 5 languages each!
The breakfast was very big the food was various and excellent! Try the sausages! Everymorning they had a few different local goodies to try.
I highly recommend this hotel to everyone.
Well, we had a nice stay in Prague this summer. Our reservation was made directly with the hotel and I guess thats the best way to do it, because they informed us about everything. We ended up taking an Executive room. The staff was always very helpful, especially at the executive reception. We wanted to get our clothes ironed, but we were told that its against fire regulations?? Well, in the end we got our clothes ironed free of charge thanks to the executive upgrade.
The breakfast was awesome. All was there you could wish for, even small salads and sour fish if you had a long night. The staff here was just so pleasant. The room was ok. Nothing special though. I complaint about not having a smoking room and I was immediately changed to another room with another little fruit basket.
The location of the hotel is outside of the center, but I guess that is a positive thing, since the tourists in the center are always there and always loud. The hotel is located in a business / local district with close access to the subway, which is working magnificent.
What I most enjoyed was taking a swim in the pool on the top floor at 9PM overviewing Prague...
All in all, the hotel is a very busy one, but to what I have experienced, it certainly stnads up for its 4 stars...I couldn't see a difference in service when I went to their 5 star sister hotel for a meeting.
Unbelievable this hotel is only 4 stars! Starting from the reservation, the airport transfer, the spacious lobby, the guest room and the restaurants, everything was in excellent condition and the staff was very nice.
I was afraid that it would be far away from the city, but it turned out to be just a short walk from the subway station and in 5 minutes, you are directly in the center!
Small criticism could be the big amount of groups, that come to this hotel, but they had a separate breakfast room so it really did not bother me that much. The reception handled the huge amount of people very efficiently, and still being welcoming. I will surely recommend this hotel to others, as it is not as expensive as the similar hotels in Prague and the service / food / facilities were great!
Do NOT use Corinthian Hotels! You have been warned!
It’s a known well known fact, we the jolly tourist and business traveller are easy targets for the taxi drivers needing to make a few extra Euros!
My first morning in the Hotel I request the concierge to book me a taxi, they state they have Hotel taxi’s outside! Great, I’m in a rush, and appreciate that hotel Taxi’s are marginally more expensive!
So I ask the Taxi Driver the price to travel the distance of 8 Metro stops (Incidentally only costing 12Kc) where I am alarmed to have been quoted a price of 850Kc, some 250 more than my trip from the airport and a quarter of the distance.
Obviously I point out to Mr Taxi driver that his rate is very high, who tells me it’s a fixed price to stop us being ripped off! Good sense of humour!
So I visit the concierge and then the reception and finally request to speak to the Hotel Manager. Who informs me that the reason the Hotel cannot book me a taxi is that it has a contract with the Hotel taxi company, and to do so would be in breach of it! Obviously No Consideration to the Hotel Guest, No Concept of Customer Service!
I point out to Mr Manager, how expensive his contract Hotel Taxi is, that I am in a rush, who only directs me to my Hotel Room, the yellow pages and the phone in my room (Incidentally also very expensive!) when surely it should not have been an issue to make a quick and simple call!
I call the very pleasant taxi company AAA who pick me up 4 minutes later and take me to my destination for 325 KC (38% of the Hotels fixed price!) Somewhat annoyed!
Arriving to the Hotel after a great night in Prague, with my Girl Friend both somewhat drunk!! We thought it would be rather amusing to test the Hotels concept of Customer Service, and ask the concierge if he could call an Escort\ Call Girl. The reply and I’m sure you will not be surprised! YES of course, What, When How much! We left the rather bemused concierge desk, somewhat confused and not knowing what to do, in tears of laughter.
When challenging the Hotel Manager as to his Hotels ability to arrange for some services and not others, he was simply embarrassed and speechless!
Incidentally, the rooms are small dirty, and in some cases smelly. The carpet in the restaurant looks like it has never been cleaned, the Bar Prices are 3* times more expensive than one of Prague’s more exclusive and trendy bars!
Andels Design Hotel is worth a stay! This hotel is not!!!
Not a bad hotel - Lacking some 4* ammenities
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in September 2006. It is a decent hotel for the price that you can get it on Priceline however; there are some things that are not of a four star quality in this hotel. It is clean, the staff are pleasant, and it is overall a nice property. The linens, beds, and towels are a few things that are sub standard for a four star hotel. The "Have A Nap Motel" in any city will have the same quality as the Panorama.
It is located 4 Metro stops from Museum and the main square. To get to Old Town you have to switch lines and go a couple of other stops. The Metro stop is accessed through a lane way in the back of the hotel. It is lit but may not be comfortable for older people or singles late at night. The Metro is very efficient but busy, be prepared to stand for all of your rides.
The hotel also thinks that anyone staying there is willing to leave their right arm for any services or products offered. 1 Litre of Evian is 10E in the room. A phone call to the US/Canada is 208 K for 1 minute and collect services are limited in Prague as the provider does not have a reciprocal agreement with many carriers. The one thing I really did not like was that you had to pay to use the gym and pool, 200 K per hour per person.
There is not much around the hotel. It is in a residential/commercial area. There is a super market close by. There is a small pizza place across from the Metro that is a real hidden gem, it does not look like much but it has a couple of floors and a deck out back. It is very reasonable and has great food.
If you can live with the price versus comfort issue it is a good place to stay but if you are expecting 4* comforts you will be disappointed.
Below expectations, wouldnt stay again
I stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. I agree with the reviews mentioning a 4 star lobby and 2 star bedrooms, definitely not worth it.
The hotel is just 4 stations from the city center, however you may want to invest in a central located hotel and avoid the walk from the subway to the hotel as it doesnt feel secure.
The parking is not free which adds to the bill if you have a car.
My advice: Stay downtown and savor Prague!
Ever wish you had never found a "great internet deal"?
After many deliberations, I decided, in my wisdom, to trust Priceline. Why? Normally, they give me a great hotel, centrally located, and one of the big chain hotels.
OK, again, 1 out of 3 aint bad.
The hotel is a high rise building, located quite a distance outside the main part of the City Centre...where the are zillions of lovely hotels and apartments..................
On arrival, after waiting at the desk for quite a few mins..(about 10) a member of staff acknowledged us, and directed us to the check in desk...2 yards along the desk where we had been standing.....DUHHHHH.
So, as we had a reduced rate on Priceline, decided we would opt into their "pay e20 for executive upgrade". Better room, better breakfast, full use of the leisure complex, robes in the bedroom etc etc.
Unfortunatly, apparently, they didnt have any exec rooms avaliable, so went into buisiness class rooms.
SOMEONE forgot to inform housekeeping, and so none of the "in room housekeeping upgrades" were made.
The rooms are standard UK biz rooms, queen sized bed consisted of 2 large single beds pushed together..so when one wanted a cuddle, one had to decide which bed to sleep in. or face having an uncomfortable night..
The toilettries were basic..soap in a container on the wall above the bath, or a bar of soap. Hairdryer..LADIES< TAKE TOUR OWN. He that must be obeyed shouted after 15mins, that effin thing sounds like an old Skoda...you nearly finished yet?
On departure, when we were checking out, we passed comment on the lack of communication between front desk and housekeeping, and were told.." If you dont tell me, then I cannot solve the problem".
Fair comment, but why should I have to feel the need to complain?
Ok, the hotel took my money, it may not have been the going rate, but it wasnt my fault they could not deliver the most basics of their services for an upgrade. EVEN to the housekeeper who tried to open my door twice when I had the "DO NOT DISTURB "sign clearly latched to the outside of my door.
On a good note..they now have a board directly inside their front entrance which clearly states the prices their taxi firm charges. Only a few pounds more than other taxi firms locally, but they provide an excellent service., with excellent cars.
The main hotel is lovely.
Entrace hall is great, 4 lifts, concierge, terrific leisure complex, and a casino
Sadly the rooms let it down badly. and the staff appear to need a lesson in customer relations. ( I wont go into the staff "dressing down" at breakfast, really embarrasing).
Basically, for less money, you can get a really comfortable room in a centrally located hotel, without the inconvenience of trams etc.
Best suited to someone who is with a group at a conference etc in the local area where the hotel is located.
Taxi Fare from City Center to Corinthia Panorama (Prague)
Can someone tell me what a "reasonable" taxi fare would be from the city center to Corinthia Panorama located near the Pankrac Metro Station. There's a good chance I will be returning to the hotel after midnight and would have to use a taxi. Don't want to be completely ripped off. Thanks in advance.
RE: Taxi Fare from City Center to Corinthia Panorama (Prague)
You may wish to explore bus / tram routes home as some do run after midnight
I am sure I took a nightbus from museum check with your hotel
RE: RE: Taxi Fare from City Center to Corinthia Panorama (Prague)
Night tram 53 runs as far as the corner of Na Pankraci and Na Veseli (from stops near Charles Bridge and the National Theatre). This would be a 2 block walk to the hotel.
Night bus 504 runs past your hotel from Museum and IP Pavlova in the centre.
