I got a suit of rooms, a living room with TV, a separate bathroom ( with Jacuzzi bath ) and toilet and a nice bedroom with a double bed at the back of the hotel which had nice views over the roof tops towards a wooded hill. To be sure, the place is a bit run down but this all... More

We popped in here on the way down from the castle. We had stood around for what seemed like ages waiting for crepes at a stall in front of the Red Lion. We were frozen and wanted to warm up. We decided to go into the Red Lion and we were met by a very friendly waiter who didn't turn... More

We stopped to eat at the Red Lion (so called not because it wants to mimic an English pub but because it is in the historical district where the house names were the painted symbols on the front of the house - hence red lion). The service was very friendly and prompt even though the bar staff did not speak... More

I booked this hotel based on the 4 star rating at hotwire.com but this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. In my honest opinion, it is not a 4 Star. They don't even have a reception desk. Before my arrival, I tried calling several times but no one answered the phone. Anyhow, we thought we will take... More

I followed the hotel direction from their website by public transport, and.. it worked 3/4 way. I had to climb up a 'hill' for 30 minutes with heavy luggages, by the time I finally found the hotel (nobody knew the name of the street), I wanted to punch someone. The manager had already left, and it was 3PM. The girls... More

My husband and I have just returned from Prague after spending 3 nights at the Red Lion Hotel, which is situated on a busy but historical street. The hotel room was spacious and very clean, it had lots of atmosphere due to keeping its historical charm. The bathroom was modern with shower. When we requested our room to be cleaned... More

This was my very first trip to Prague and when my wife and I return I have no doubt we'll stay at the Red Lion Hotel again. The staff was friendly, spoke English, and very helpful in every way. On a curious note, one doesn't check in directly at the Red Lion, but must walk up Nerudova Street about 200... More

Nice hotel situated in historic part,close to the beautiful Prague's Castle. The atmosphere is warm and the staff is friendly. As It's situated almost on the top of the hill ,i do not recommend for people with limited abilities. Nice hotel to feel the real life in old Prague.

This was an amazing hotel! There are only great things to say about Red Lion. The room was extremely spacious, we stayed in Room 21, and it had a queen bed plus a sitting area with a full lounge. We had a great view of Nerudova St, which was beautiful. It was in the most convenient location, about a 5-7... More
