If you are traveling with low budget this is your place. Located near Dancing Building, near metro station Karlovo náměstí. This hotel is located in New Town but is just a 10-15 minute walk from Old Town - where most the tourist attractions are. Few local cheap restaurants nearby. So we didn`t try Breakfast inside Guest House that cost 4.5... More

This place is anything but good! You can never find this place from the first time! We had to go back and forth in the same street to find this place! There are no sighs or building number..! The walls are thin as paper, you can hear everything from the rooms next to you (it is not that nice when... More

If you are traveling with low budget this is your place. Is a HOTEL, no hostel, which is the best. Me and my friends stayed here, the room had 2 single beds and one BIG bed, total 4 people but more people would fit there without a problem. The staff at the night was son kind and so comprehensible. They... More

Pros: good location The only good thing with this accommodation is location. Really central and good area. But the rest is just negative. Staff was quite unpleasant and unhelpful. During our stay there was only one man who was quite nice, everyone else in the reception was not. We have booked double rooms with two separate beds, the price 72EUR... More

It has everything a hotel needs, clean sheets, clean towels, hot water, and proximal location. It was easy to ask people for directions till we became acquainted with Prague, we just asked for directions to Dancing House (one block away) and one block from the metro station too. This hotel is located in New Town but is just a 10-15... More

We stayed at Hotel Merlin for 5 days, 2 adult and a 3 year old child. Room was cleaned very bad when we arrived. We have a 3 year old boy and sometimes when you have so small child you maybe need to change bed clothes. When we asked for extra bed clothes they had no extra, it took 8... More

Is ok for the price and location! Positive: close to the center, has a nice view if you are at the right side of the building, price is also fine. Negative: bathroom smelled like hell the first day, was probably not well cleaned or used before. We had to flush everything for half an hour to get rid of the... More

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
