We have just returned after one-week staying in Otakar hotel. We've mostly liked our staying in this hotel and here is a short summary: The hotel is in fact very basic, though it may look pretentiously in photos. Don't look at professional photos of pompous interiers! Look at photos of the real hotel's visitors. The rooms are quite modest even... More

Staff very pleasant & most helpful. Basic accommodation, not as glamourous as portrayed on website. Close to good transport links to Prague city centre, acceptable breakfast included in price. If you like cheap & cheerful, this hotel will fit the bill.

We booked the hotel for overnight stay due to a gig in the city center. Previously tried similar hotel and found this better, therefore 3 stars. One of the reasons we had chosen the hotel is the possibility to park a car for free just in front of the hotel (the parking zones end close to hotel and I would... More

Arrived at the hotel and was a little scared from the outside-but inside is wonderful. Our room was clean, and spacious. Nothing bad to say but nothing amazing either to report. It was the cheapest 'best' option on booking.com at the time so would recommend if you are looking for something that won't break the bank. Receptionist speaks English too... More

Stayed here for four nights. Stuff was polite and helpful. Breakfest room large enough and food good enough as well. All places around Prague easy reachable by tram or bus and all stops are very close to this hotel. However this causes also one and only dislike about this place - noise from street. If you go to bed late... More

I stayed here with my family for five nights. Clean place with helpful staff. The food is good. Very convenient for the tram (although that can be a bit noisy). I was impressed and Prague is a lovely city too.
