Good location, very good in house restaurant with a small summer terrace. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our bedroom was big and we had access to a shared fridge in the corridor. Some minor issues in the first day, like broken lift and WiFi but these where quickly solved. I would say its not fancy but comfortable enough. Good if... More

I have been staying over at Merlin multiple times since year 2006, and I had the worse experience this time when I requested from the receptionist, Anthonin, for late check out (before 16:00 CEST) for which he acknowledged and confirmed, while I was showering @ 14:00, anthonin was knocking on the door, trying to break it down demanding in a...

Dear Mr. P. N. N. L., thank you for your time you took to review our hotel MERLIN. However, please, did you make sure you have left this feedback to the right hotel, when you say you have been staying over at Merlin multiple times?? Do you maybe mean the former hotel Merlin, now called hotel Otakar? (they had to... More

Good location, quite place, but.. we've got a "smoked" room with a strong smell of smoking; twice there was a problem with a hot water; during our 5 days of staying in the hotel, the room was cleaned only one time. There is a room for improvement!

Dear customer, thank you for your time you took to review our hotel MERLIN. However, we are surprised and sorry that you felt you needed to leave for us such a very bad undeserved feedback after you left our hotel without paying your hotel bill balance. You have booked a single room through LateRooms.com for three nights 1.5.-4.5.2015 = the... More

We stayed 3 days and in the evening of the first one, the room had not been made. The reception told us that the maid comes every second day! Apparently this was mentioned on the reservation paperwork...not on ours...So your chances to sleep in someone else's bed linen the day you arrive are very high! You will then also have... More

When we come back again in Praga, we'll absolutely come back to this hotel: very tipycal building with so nice rooms. Our room was very nice and simple. They clean the room every two days, but if you are clean person it's enough! The position it's perfect to get the center in 10 minuts by foot or less by bus... More

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

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

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
