Visited twice, the first time checked out the books and the second to give it another chance. Book stock is great but utterly charmless staff intent only on their computer. Customer interest completely lacking. It is nice to be able to browse without pressure but a bit of attention creates warm fuzzies and sales. Second time sprawled in the armchairs... More

Very nice place to have couple of drinks! Funny artwork on the walls and music performances at night. Lovely bookstore with interesting books. Very lovely and cheerful staff. Not too pricy and totally smoke-free! Worth to visit!

This is a great place to relax, grab an English book, and meet fellow travelers / English speaking visitors. Food is decent, staff are effective. Lots of events throughout the week. English bookstore. Selection is limited but decent enough.

I was really pleasantly surprised by how laid-back and informal the place is, and how nice the staff are to tourists/non-Czech speakers. Many waiters in Prague have been rather rude to me and my group, but here they were very welcoming and just excellent. Also the music is terrific - as someone from the US, almost every bar in Prague... More

It's been already 3 days I'm trying to recover from it. We were first to come on Sunday to get some food. In about 4 hours I could't stand up from the stomach ake I got. Wish me good luck recovering from it and I hope nobody else will have to go through such a bad experience!

Hello Alexander, We are very sorry to hear about your illness and have investigated to see what may have caused such a terrible thing. Sunday, as usual, was a very busy brunch and we were crowded all morning and into the afternoon. We have asked all the staff who were working (and each had a staff meal) and our regular... More

One morning, on a friend's rec, I checked out this place for a little quiet time from the otherwise hectic scene that is Prague. It was a little out of the way but was easily worth the 15 min Sun morning walk as I was very happy with what I found - though I admittedly took the trolley across the... More

As mentioned in the title, it's hard not to find expats here dining, reading, studying, socializing, or looking for a good book. It's a warm place to be and very welcoming. I love the loft for the bookstore! Makes me that much more excited to look for good reads. The brunch is perfect for the weekend, although a bit pricey... More

We visited at night for the karaoke evening which runs on Saturdays, it was very lively and friendly and a great place to meet people.The drinks were cheap and the atmosphere was great. When looking at the bookstore area it is quite small, however, and I do not feel this is its main attraction.

The brunch was yummi and the staff very kind. The place is great, even if the only thing that bothers is this: every 10 min comes someone to ask yuo if everything ok or you want more. I mean, give me the time to eat!! Except for that great place.

I'm an avid reader, a writer, a long-time worker in the publishing industry. I went into the Globe Bookstore looking forward to a warm welcome, maybe even a chat with another bibliophile, and was rewarded with the coldest shoulder I've encountered in a very long time. I wasn't going to write a review, as my visit was so short that... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
