Would not recommend this hotel. Our room was in the attic, 65 steps up to the room. We were not offered any help to carry our luggage to this small stuffy room that had no airconditioning. The noise from the street was atrocious and continued throughout the night. We got no sleep during our 3 day stay. Breakfast was basic... More

Perfect location in the Old Town of Prague. Many of the most popular tourist attractions in the old town is a few meters from the hotel. A little expensive, but good, clean and nice rooms.Only a small minus, until the car park about 5 minutes to go through the streets of the old town, which can be seen as a... More

This hotel is Very central but definitely not a four star hotel. The location is very convinient if you are planning to stay a lot around the centre. Its relatively quite if you think about the short distance from the square. Room was clean and big. The tv extremly small if this is important for anyone. Only one news channel... More

Just visited Hotel few days ago. I can fully recommend the Hotel if you do not mind the noisefrom the streets, squeaking old floors and stone faced Hotel employees. If you choose the Hotel make sure you have cash to pay the bill when leaving. Breakfast was ok. Finnish flash

This charming hotel is only 1 block from the main square in the Old Town of Prague. It was close to many museums, shopping, and restaurants. The rooms are large and appointed with eclectic antiques. The bathroom is updated and modern. The breakfast was included and was delicious and the concierge was friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that... More

Excellent location not far from the old town square and astronomical clock. My single room on the second floor was clean and comfortable with a large modern bathroom (I had a slight problem with the wash basin - I had to let the tap run for ages before I got hot water). The breakfasts were good with a nice selection... More

The hotel is located just off the central square. Not an easy place to find (suggest you use a map not Google Navigation- it had no clue). The location is great for seeing all the sites - next to the square - not far from the Danube - and an easy bus ride to the castle. The hotel is very... More

This truly ancient hotel (ca. 1490) has a friendly staff, comfy rooms at reasonable prices, and the best location one could ask for in the heart of Old Praha. The hotel is about 50 yards off the Old Town Square next to the former Cathedral which is now a museum. It's like living in the Square without the noise and... More

Great location, reasonable prices, modern bathroom and clean spacious room. Restaurant was pleasant with prompt service of tasty meals. Unfortunately the cellar bar was not open, which was one of the attractions in the first place. Interesting building decor with lots of historical aspects - hence UNESCO listing. Highly recommend - only missing piece was the staff - they did... More

Stayed 1 night in April. Location is superb, right in the heart of the old town and next to the main square. Little difficult to find with the way Prague streets run, but decent old world hotel and traditional features. If you have mobility issues, not recommended as no elevators. Room on top floor, 4th, good sized considering the age... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
