As many of the other reviewers have said before, the people who work at this hotel are its best asset, you could ask ANYTHING at the reception and everyone just did their very best to help you whatever the problem was. There is absolutely nothing bad to be said about the hotel itself also, the room was clean and big... More

A cozy hotel with a marvelous staff. This is a fantastic hotel for some nice days in Prague. The room is clean, and nice decorated. The staff is really working hard to do its best and I must say the really succeeded to make everything to its best.

Perfect place to stay in Prague. Comfortable beds. Spotless rooms. Large breakfast spread. Friendly, helpful staff. 15min walk to old town square. Less than 5min walk to a metro stop - old town is 3 stops away. Area is lovely - feels residential with great coffee shops and restaurants close by. A winner!

We stayed at the Hotel Arkada for four nights. The room and ensuite was spacious and clean. Beds changed everyday and hotel staff were friendly. It is only a 5 minute walk from the main square and a 15 minute walk from more reasonable priced restaurants. At just over £40 a night it is great value. The breakfast wasn't that... More

Location is very good - just behind the Wenceslas Square - on a small and very quiet street. A walk to downtown is very short. The hotel is very nice, rooms are not too big - but my bathroom was just enourmously huge! It had a window and a lot of sunlight, absolutely loved it. Bed is comfortable. Staff is... More

This can not be considered 4 star. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room.The hot breakfast was really terrible,plastic tasteless sausages,a pile of fat described as bacon and rubber fried eggs with eggshell in them on 2 days and cheap tasteless cornflakes to start. Also as a single gay traveller I was quizzed when I brought a friend back... More

It's just about 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel to the train station if you don't have heavy luggage. If you have suitcase and need to go through the metro and walk through tunnels, it takes much longer. The hotel's staff is very friendly and helpful. They gave us a lot of helpful information and because we needed to leave... More

The reception staff was friendly and pleasant, and spoke good English. I booked myself a single room and was given a room on the 4th/5th floor (cannot remember... More
