If its cheap, book it. The rooms are tiny, the beds are not very comfortable. You hear a lot from the neighbours and the sun is shining directly into the room. You will not sleep well without preparation - oropax and a blindfold. The whole hotel is very clean and looks very good. Breakfast is included - it sucks but... More

I was in the Racek Botel in 2004 .... but you can not choose this date. Any way I take the time to write about it. It was a really good experience. The price is still very good (I just check it). It was clean and confortable. Just in front of a tram station and that is good because it... More

I felt we got good value for money here as it was very cheap accomodation. The boat was clean and actually very quiet considering we were next to the reception. The view onto the river was lovely and breakfast was okay. The only downside is the beds were very uncomfortable. Your a 15 minute bus ride into town which isn't... More

We spent 3 days in botel with breakfast. Restaurant (tables and glasses) was dirty, we were waiting for bread 40 minutes in the morning (since 8:15 to 9:00 wasn't bread in the restaurant) and waiter was very inpolite when we complained. Accommodation is very simply and cheap but breakfast is zero. Cheapest toilet-paper and serviette, no heating during the day... More

With ducks,Swans and other birds in abundance,wanting to be fed bread and the small boats of all description going slowly by is a pleasure... More

The rooms were small and outdated. It smelled like people smokend in there. The matrasses were really thin, we didn't sleep welk. And the walls are so thin, you van hear everything. We left earlier then planned

Just looking for a cheap place to stay before our flight the next morning so we didn't mind that the hotel was a bit old and run down and that the room was tiny. HOWEVER, the room (non smoking) smelt terrible! Like a mixture of smoke, smelly sea water and dust. The sheets had holes in them and to top... More

although it looks a bit weary on the outside, the inside is pretty cozy, the rooms are small and a bit dusty but overall they were okey, The restaurant and terrace are very nice, with a lovely view of the Danube the staff is very friendly, although a bit slow. We had a nice stay, great deal for a low... More

The botel is a bit outdated. We booked this hotel because all the hostels in Prague were fully booked because of Easter. The rooms are fine and so is the bathroom. We had free breakfast and there is enough parking space. Walking to the city centre is a bit far. By taxi it's like 15 minutes and costs 250 czk.... More
