Stayed for a week on a work/pleasure trip. The location was amazing--immediately across from the Dancing House and the Vltava and easy access to tram and metro. The room was ok. Nicely appointed, but clearly Ikea and quickly showing age. The basement pub was a bit overpriced and left a smoky smell on weekends, but was convenient. The Vietnamese restaurant... More

I stayed here for a few days last spring on a tour of Europe. I booked this after seeing the You Tube of the young couple touring as I was. They were sorta backpacking vs me and the trains. I was pleased with the staff and facilities. The breakfast was a disappointment, but being from the US my tastebuds differed.... More

Good value for money, but nothing unusual. Location could be lot better, especially if you consider that there are NO parking possibilities in front of the hotel (if you park your car will get towed). You have to go and search for a parking place, and they are scarce and costly, except during the weekends. Staff was also OK but... More

Booked few days in advance a smal double bed room with a shared bathroom, because other rooms were already full. Communication was swift and without problems. Funny thing you can't pay with a credit/debit card. Cash only. So kind of curious, how the money could be withdrawn as described in the last review. The small attic double bed room wasn't... More

We loved our stay here. We felt very secure with three locked doors to get to our room though some hallmates forgot to lock the hall door. It was very clean and the receptionist was always very kind and helpful. The price was good too. No one bothered our food in the shared fridge but we had the wing to... More

We planned late for our 3 day, 2 night trip to Prague, so this pension was the best we could find. We wanted to be close to the Old Town, we needed it to be affordable, they needed to accept pets, and we needed four rooms. It delivered on all these counts. Amazing value for the location. The rooms are... More

It was our first time in Prague and a colleague of mine recommended the hotel. The location was good - strategic and walking distance to a nice view of the river. More walking leads you already to the Charles Bridge. The room was good for me and my wife, and our daughter. There was an extra bed for our daughter,... More

I stayed at Merlin for 4 nights during my latest trip to Prague. The room on the 5th floor was far enough above street level for me to not be bothered by traffic noise, as it's close to a major road. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were reasonably good value; thankfully there's also a lift... More
