The hotel is inconvenient for people with disabilities, as you need to go up steps to get to the lift. However, this wasn't a problem for us, and the hotel location was amazing, and we could hear no noise from the street. The hotel was not easy to see from the street, as you need to buzz entrance into the... More

Everything in this hotel was average, exactly what you would expect in this part of the world. The breakfast was predictable to the type of salami that was served. Only a couple of problems, 1 - the bed was horrendously uncomfortable, although I am quite picky with this. 2 - the humidity of the room was unbearable and with no... More

A quiet location with lovely staff, basic hotel offering a basic but adequate breakfast, clean and tidy. On top 3 floors of a 6-7 storey building surrounded by bars and adult themed establishments. Close to Wencelas Square and A line underground.

The pension is on the top floor of an old appartment building and you have your own key to the main door, so it feels like... well, a pension from the old days, where you could actually live. I loved coming in the building with the old-fashioned tiles and imagining that I lived there. The place is pretty basic otherwise... More

Now I know you get what you pay for but Prague during New Years is sooo expensive so I had no choice! A great location with a short walk to the square and old city. Down sides were the really poor wifi that rarely worked and a filthy shower that had mould in all colors of the rainbow. We got... More

Some of the good points are the staff were super happy and friendly. The hotel is was clean and fresh white linen and towels. Location is great and very close to everything. Rooms are a good size with plenty of storage and plug sockets. Downside: Not easy to find, there is no hotel sign outside, you need to follow the... More

Staying in Vinohrady & Vrsovice

Neighborhood Profile
Vinohrady & Vrsovice
Compared to the medieval heart of Prague, this neighborhood standing on former vineyards developed very quickly in the first decades of the 19th century. Today, it is the place where everyone wants to live, and those who do, are proud of it. With its amazing parks, classicist houses, terrace cafés, artsy bars, cozy restaurants, markets, and vintage and trendy shops, it is a home for people from all around the world. This area blends expats, families, bohemian students and Prague’s hip community. It is a great place for breakfast in the morning, the best lunch places and a buzzing night life. After sundown, stroll down to Vršovice, the new center of the hipster, alternative and gay scenes in Prague.
