More about Ventana Hotel Prague
great location, but not a 5 star experience
The Ventana hotel is in a great location if you want to be near the Old Square - and judging by the endless milling crowds there, most do. Service is efficient without ever being particularly enthusiastic.The cooked items at breakfast were pretty dismal though pastries were OK and the service here was friendly. However, we weren't warned that the bathroom in our Deluxe room was designed for a disabled or mobility restricted individual, so that the bath was only good for sitting up in and the overbath shower was too low to stand under. We therefore asked to change to a room with a user- friendly bath and shower. They transferred us to a smaller, less deluxe and, you might imagine, a less expensive room, but when we came to pay, the manager refused to refund the difference between the deluxe room we had booked and the 'superior' we had transfered to. This is good for profitabality, but not good for customer satisfaction. The Ventana apires to be 5 star, but judging by our experience, it isn't there yet.
Great hotel, great staff, great location
There isn’t a lot I can add to the previous reviews. The hotel staff are great, our room ( room 48 ) was spotless, light and airy ( but there was pretty much no view ). The location is perfect – right by the main attractions.
We’d definitely stay there again & would recommend it to anyone who wants a good hotel right in the centre.
Excellent hotel! Would stay here again
What a beautiful hotel! My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in September 2006. I have only positive things to say about this hotel. First of all, it is gorgeous! Our room was huge with a very nice, large bathroom. The décor was lovely. Bay windows opened above the street and Tyn Church. The lobby was also very nice. The entire hotel was extremely clean. Breakfast was included - a large hot and cold buffet with a lot of variety. The location was great, right off of the Old Town Square. We walked everywhere, since the hotel is central to most everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Prague.
Beautiful hotel and best location!
Wonderful hotel right in the heart of Prague's old town. You could even see the old town hall from our bedroom window. The hotel has recently been refurbished, it was previously a residential property, and it has been finished to a very high standard. Our room was large, extremely clean and most comfortable.
The hotel only offers bed and breakfast, but the breakfast served offers an extensive choice to suit all tastes.
Prague itself is a delight. We stayed for three nights and saw all of the city centre and generally marvelled at the architecture, particularly the old town. This is what makes the location of the Ventana Hotal so great. I would highly recommend both the hotel and Prague to everyone.
Fabulous hotel in Old Town Prague
The Hotel Ventana is a beautiful boutique hotel one building off the main square but with views of the square and astrological clock. We had a deluxe suite which was beautiful - whole hotel is very tastefully elegant. Front desk staff were exceptional for helping with restaurant recommendations, loan of laptop, laundry, etc. Breakfast was very good and included champagne if you were interested. There were few reviews when we made our reservation but we were thrilled with our choice.
Good European hotel.
I stayed three nights at the Ventana in September, 06.
The hotel is in an old building that has been well restored.
All European hotels have small rooms, and this was no exception. I was traveling alone, and so I got a single room. The bed was a twin bed pushed up against the wall.
The bathroom was very nice, and unlike some European hotels, it had a shower curtain.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Be aware though, that putting the "do not disturb" hanger on the door will not keep out the cleaning staff.
The complementary breakfast was good. It was mostly breads and pastries, but they also had scrambled eggs.
The location is amazing. This is the real reason to stay at the Ventana. Almost, everything that you might want to see is within walking distance. You are less than 100 feet from Old Town Square.
The Ventana is in the best location in Old Town, right off the main town square amid beautiful restaurants, historic sites and cobblestone streets. The hotel seems new as the rooms are perfectly clean, bedding down filled white brand new, and new marble bathroom. We were in a top floor loft room with little view but who cared. The room was two levels with bedroom above and living room below, 2 TVs, king size poster bed, fridge, slippers, skylights, etc. Gorgeous and a great value. Breakfast is included and is varied and plentiful, champagne, hot foods, great service. They lent us a computer each night for free internet access. Definitely stay here. You cannot beat it for value and accomodation. One tip - ask for a quiet room if thats for you as the square can be noisy and it is a popular place for young people who can party late. Also, only stay in a loft room if you don't mind the stairs in the room.
Perfect in Prague
We could not have been more happy with a hotel on our recent visit to Prague. Location is key in our selection of hotels and the Ventana was directly off of the Old Town Square. From our room we could see the Astronomical Clock and the spectacular Tyn Church. The room had high ceilings, perfect furnishings and all of the touches that make a stay special. The room was very spacious and featured heated marble floors in the bathroom. Staff was friendly and helpful (ignore the guidebook rap on the Czechs...they were all very courteous). We would recommend this outstanding property to anyone.

best location in Prague old city
Stayed for a week in October. Service was great .Staff and management very helpful. Breakfast selection and quality a nice touch. Located less than 50 m from old town square, and a 6 minute walk to 2 different metro stops allowing access to the entire city. Highly recommended.
