We had really great time in Hotel Merkur. Perfect service, good price, taste food. We were worried about the hotel localisation but the distance to the old town with major attraction was fine (15 min walk).

The location is very convenient to shopping, dining, and the primary Prague attractions like the Old Town Square. Staff was nice and their English is good. Breakfast was pretty good. Room was okay -- mostly clean (with the exception of the carpet which really needs to be replaced). Biggest issue was the lack of air conditioning. Makes it really tough... More

Very nice hotel, excellent location, attentive staff and service above expectation. After we arrived in the hotel we had a great luncheon in the NEW LIMIT hotel restaurant ALL YOU CAN EAT at EUR 5.00 per person only. Wide range of fresh salads, home-made soup, typical Czech dumplings with goulash delicious desserts. All just perfect.........

Over the years I have stayed in a number of hotels in various European cities but when I am in Prague I always choose Hotel Merkur. Its clean, reasonably priced, and wonderful staff. They helped me feel right at home. They directed me and my friends to the best restuarant and bars in town so we didn't miss out on... More

We arrived late in the evening, on the night before the flight back home, from great vacation in Austria and Germany. First we discovered that someone decided that .4 beds are enough for a room that was booked for couple + 3 (youngest has 6 years old) But this was not the worst, we went into the room, which was...

We had a great stay at Hotel Merkur. Perfect location, could not have been better. They provided wonderful dinner recommendations along with reservations if needed. So they really couldn't have done any more for us. They also helped with information and directions for sight seeing as well as arranging transportation. The staff is more than exeptional, very helpful and very... More

We stayed here with friends four nights in room 211. I definetaly loved the staff, we were also quite impressed by breakfast quality. Location is just perfect, in few minutes you can be wherever you want. I would come again when I were in Prague!

Once we figured out the city this hotel was convenient to the centre of town, the metro and the bus system. The rooms were large and very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and it had an interesting and varied breakfast.

My biggest priorities for a hotel room are that it is clean and that I feel secure. This hotel provided both. No, it wasn't the biggest, fanciest hotel I've ever seen, but it was perfect for our needs. It's about a 15-20 minute walk to Old Town, but it's much, much cheaper than the hotels that are right in Old... More

Overall this hotel was disappointing. The room was pretty dirty. The carpet was gross, as were the blankets and sheets. (I normally don't care much about that kind of thing, so for me to comment on it means it was really bad.) It was further from the Old City than I had thought, although I suppose that's my fault for... More
