    Very decent


    Hotel Riverside is a 5star hotel, member of "small luxury hotels of the world" located at the banks of Vlatava river in a quarter called Smichov. It´s close to the Dancing house. Unfortunately there aren`t too many tempting looking bars, cafés or restaurants close by - and it is a 15/20 minutes walk to the centre. Closest metro station is Andel. However - the hotel is elegant and decently furnished. It has about 50 rooms now, but they are planning on enlarging the hotel. The hotel was opened in 2002 already, but it still seems to be brand new- it is very well maintained. There is a bar, where you could take your welcome drink, which is usually included in the room price. The superior rooms (EUR 275/night) have courtyard view I read, the deluxe rooms (EUR 335/night) are provided with a seating area and views of river Vltava. A nice milk glass leaf door was leading to the pretty mosaic tiles bathroom with double sink, bath tub and glass shower. The breakfast was very good and the staff was helpful and friendly. The use of the mini bar was included in room price. All in all - it is for sure a really decent hotel, where you`ll hardly get disappointed. I found it lacked a bit of a special atmosphere or uniqueness and the quarter isn`t particularily charming.

    lovely spacious apartments


    These were self catering apartments and were lovely. the service we recieved from this company was excellent. The apartments were clean, comfy and airy. They contained everything you need for a week long stay. The taxi transfer service was also good. Only improvment needed was air conditioning, although fans were provided. I would highly recomment these apartments.

    Unique Quality: A pool, sauna and gym are available to use in the apartment building, 24 hour security in building and lovely views of the River Vltava.

    Directions: Just over the bridge next to the Dancing Building.

    Prague's best


    I was staying here with my sister after her brain operation. This time, we did not live in Prague yet. After her op she should stay few days in Prague if there come some complications.
    After op like this you have a lot of special wishes and the personal of this hotel helped us great, was allways friendly, even if the reception woman cooked tee after midnight, because there was nobody in the kitchen.
    This hotel is in one art nouveau building, great renovated.

    Unique Quality: In the whole interieurs of this hotel are the modern technology and traditional design comming together. Everything is great designed into the last detail, rooms are very comfortable and really very nice.
    The best in this Hotel is the personal. Here you can enjoy the real czech hospitality.
    The hotel does not have own restaurant, but you can get some food into your room and they make great breakfast. My opinion is, that you don't need restaurant there, because there are a lot of very good restaurants around.
    Personal here helps you with any kind of things you need, they are really great.

    Directions: On the riverside of Vltava, against the dancing house, 10mins from Charles Bridge

  • Excellence


    We stayed 4 nights at this hotel and were very impressed with the personalized service provided by the staff. The rooms were very nicely appointed and tastefully decorated. There is not a restaurant but breakfast was included and served between 6:30- 11:00a.m. in the breakfast room by very friendly and warm hotel staff.
    We will definitely recommend to anyone. Most if not all guests' comments (tripadvisor) consistently reflect very pleasant experience with their hotel stay.

    Unique Quality: Great views of the Vltava river and the city, sepate sitting area and very clean rooms, friendly and caring staff

    Directions: Smichov district, from Andel metro station, walk towards the river

The good reviews are all justified

by TripAdvisor Member Traveller006

Our family of four has just spent three nights at the Riverside. We found Prague to be beautiful and this hotel to be excellent. We would repeat all the good comments in the preceding reports - well appointed; beautifully kept; very helpful staff; wonderful breakfasts.

And don't be put off by the location being slightly away from the centre of town. Transport really is easy (we used the nearby trams, especially no.17). If you want to walk, the distances are not huge. And it is actually pleasant to escape the tourist hordes at the end of the day.

Two excellent restaurants recommended by the hotel: Potrefena husa (Crazy Goose?) - 5 mins walk over the bridge; buzzing and a bit trendy; food good and very reasonable prices. U modre kachnicky (Blue Duck) - further away in Mala Strana and fairly expensive (by Prague standards); but well worth the walk and very good value by English standards; very attractive and food first rate.

Just average and not well located....

by A TripAdvisor Member

We have just been to Prague and had a lovely time and would highly recomend visiting this beautiful place to anyone. However, although the Riverside is a nice small hotel its location wasn't so good and it is overpriced in my opinion. I was drawn to it through the SLH rating, but having walked around the old town there are many more better located and better priced good hotels to choose from e.g. Hotel Pariz. I had requested the hotel to book us a table for dinner at the La Perla restaurant which they confirmed by e-mail, but upon arrival I was extremely disapointed when they notified me that my reservation was no longer at the La Perla as requested but a much dingier restaurant of a lower standard in the centre. The staff were not apologetic for messing up our evening plans, which for this standard of hotel is not acceptable.

Hard to Leave

by TripAdvisor Member JFE

I booked this hotel due to your contributors' consistent excellent comments. My husband and I couldn't agree more after having stayed there four nights recently. Everyone at the hotel we ran into spoke very good English and were extremely helpful with our requests. From Ana and Richard at the front desk to Otto the doorman and others, we felt so welcome and at home. The suite we stayed at was on the 5th floor looking out to the beautiful views of the Vltava river and the city. With hard wood floors, the suite had well-appointed rooms, including a separate sleeping room, very clean bathroom with luxurious white robes. To top it all, we had a hearty and healthy breakfast daily (included) that provided us with lots of energy before we ventured out into our walking tours of this very charming place. The service was impeccable especially of the breakfast team with special mention for Renata, Eva and Hana.

We did not mind having to walk a very short distance to the train stations nor to the city center.

I would definitely recommend. Our hotel experience made our visit to Prague even more memorable!

We loved it here!

by TripAdvisor Member Stevev

We have just arrived back from this hotel which we decided upon based on the excellent reviews here.

It is a fantastic place to stay. Although rated as 5 Star there are no leisure facilities therefore you can take it from us that this rating is down to the quality of service alone!

As we arrived we were sat down in the bar and given guide books and shown maps and given advice on where to go and where to eat. Otto the porter than took us up to our room and enthused about the room and took 5mins pointing out everything. We had booked a deluxe room (river view, slightly bigger) but were given a free upgrade to a Junior Suite (having booked through a website) which was lovely. It faced both the front (river view) and side (small park view). 2 towel changes a day and maid comes into prepare the bed for the evening! That being said we did see in some of the other rooms (peeked in while the maid was changing linen...like you do!) and they also looked very nice.

People have mentioned the breakfasts and we were not disappointed. Choice of eggs, bacon and that on top of yogurts, fruit, cereal, fish, pastries. They were incredibly attentive and friendly, as soon as your empty plate has hit the table it's gone and drinks replenished with coffee or choice of types of tea. The staff were a credit to the hotel, so friendly and always smiling and making you feel welcome.

I would agree with the person who found the hotel bar pricey, we had a couple of glasses of wine before heading off to the Opera which cost us about 400K...currently nearly £10!! Tea & Coffee were fine though.

We also took the hotel recommendation of The Blue Duck (U Modre Kachnisky) on our last night. It was fantastic, beautiful food, unhurried and lovely setting inside the restaurant. We thought by UK price standards it was quite good. Glass of sparkling wine followed by bottle of wine, 3 courses and finally a Baileys all for £60. You can then turn right out of the restaurant and walk back across Charles Bridge at night and wander back to the hotel...makes a change from your usual evening stroll at home!!

Finally the hotel is a 30 minute walk from the centre of town but we liked that since the centre can get a little rowdy sometimes last thing at night.
It's a very safe walk back to the hotel late at night since it's next to the river next to a main road.

Our advice, like most people's here.....go to this hotel, it really is a beautiful small hotel, very personal with fantastic staff.

wonderful hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

I'll be back!

by A TripAdvisor Member

We have just returned from a three night stay at the riverside hotel and it was amazing. I was delighted to discover that our "standard room" was clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished. My only criticism is that there was very limited wardrobe space for a lady who is unable to pack light!
I only made it down to breakfast on one occasion (due to the enormous cosy bed!) and I was greeted with a wonderful array of fresh fruit, meat, cheeses, cereals, bread and the option of a cooked breakfast.
The staff was professional, friendly and always delighted to help book restaurants, shows, etc.
Enjoy your trip!

PS. If you fancy a nice meal go to U Modre Kachnicky (The Blue Duckling). Expensive but delicious.
