“As we expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights and were satisfied. Room was clean, bathroom is OK, enough place. We got a room on the 5th floor, which is like an attic, but it wasn't a problem for us. For the afternoon it became bit warmer, but the aircon worked well. Staff at reception was very helpful, explained which tram to use (22nd to the Castle!), where can we buy tickets, moreover reserved us table at a restaurant, so congrats to them!
I read in a few comments, that the location is not the best. We arrived by car, therefore it is a really good location. As I saw, in the downtown, cars are not allowed to drive to every small street, which means, you can park your car at a different parking house and walk (with luggages etc) to the hotel. This hotel has few own parking places in front of the hotel, which is comfortable (don't have to walk).
The place where breakfast is served is smaller than it would be necessary. On a crowded morning it was uncomfortable - the buffet table is small. The selection is average, which is OK, if you don't expect a superb breakfast.
Altogether I think for us it was good value for our money, thank you!

Dear Guest,
First of all we would like to thank you for your comments, as the opinion of our guests is of the utmost importance to us and our main source to improve our facilities and service. Apart from the positive comments for which we thank you, we also appreciate your comment regarding lack of space in the breakfast room that we are constantly trying to improve. Last year we have added one more room with 24 extra seats and now that the weather got better, we also have the garden available for all guests, which is being more and more taken advantage of. We will be looking forward to your next visit, please don’t hesitate to contact s directly for a sweet discount.

we live here for 2 days, the room was clean, big, and comfortable.The breakfast was simple but very delicious. All the staff (including the reception and the dining room) were very friendly and diligent. anyway, it was a nice stay. except the road toward to the metro was bumpy, it took us 20 minutes to get to the metro, and the metro did have no elevator so we have to carry our 20KG luggage downstairs!!!

Room Tip: rooms on the street was not noisy but has a good view.

Dear Molly,
Thank you for choosing Alqush Downtown Hotel **** for your stay in Prague. It was our pleasure having you here as well as reading your detailed review of your stay with us. We highly appreciate your compliments and are glad that you only have positive experience with us. Please note that even though there are not escalators/lift down to the metro, there are those going up so until they build a lift, this will have to serve us. Believe me that if I could influence it, it would have been there for a while.
We hope to have a chance to welcome you back soon!

generally we liked the place thanks to friendly and helpful staff, clean and newly furnished rooms and splendid breakfast. but i should say that we expected more. 1st: location was a bit disappointing after staying at another place in the very center of old town. it takes at least 20 minutes to walk to the old town, Charles Bridge, nice local restaurants, etc.
and 2nd thing is size of the rooms - London style tiny room where the bed occupies about 80% of the room area.

Dear Guest,
We highly appreciate your kind review and are glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for mentioning that the hotel is new, it was actually recently renovated and we maintain it every day not only by regular cleanings, but also painting and carpet cleaning since we believe that every guest has the right to feel like he or she is the first one sleeping in the room. I’m sorry to disappoint you with our location, if you expected to be located on the main avenue, I understand it. However, most of our guests do not mind the 10 minute walk to the National Museum, Wenceslas Square, Vyšehrad Castle or Congress Center. I do admit that the Old Town square is a bit longer walk, but taking into consideration the beautiful historical area of the hotel, it is actually a pleasant experience.
In case you re-evaluate your location expectations, don’t hesitate to contact us anytime you wish to come to Prague and we will be glad to provide you with a fair discount for our returning customers.
Have a wonderful day.
Best regards
Your Hotel Team

Alqush hotel is first of all located great - 5 minutes walk from Pavlova station where you can get Tramve or Metro, but also 15-30 minutes walk from the train station, the main boulevard and the old city. The room we got was big, classic (but not outlandish) decorated and very very clean. The breakfast was very good, and there is strong free wifi everywhere. The staff was nice and helpful, really gave us the filling that they genuinely want to help, for example they recommended a restaurant for dinner and said there is no need to make a reservation, but when we got to the restaurant we found out that the girl from the reception called them anyway to make sure they give us a nice table... All in all, a wonderful experience and a great choice for Prague. Tip - don't necessarily book through Booking or similar sites, first address the hotel directly sometime they might give you an even better price.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing an objective review on Trip Advisor, it is highly appreciated. I am glad that some guests do realize what the differences between smaller local hotels and big famous chains are and that based on that comparison, they choose to stay in a local hotel. It is definitely not only about the huge price difference and the culture, but one definitely gets much more personal services and feeling of being at home once they stay in a family hotel like ours as you described in your review. Thank you for your review!!
Best Wishes

I stayed in this hotel on a 3-days trip to Prague and was delighted with this hotel.
The rooms are spacious, and the room styling is classical, well suited to the city, with a large bathroom. The tv channel selection is quite limited, as most channels offered are in czech.
The hotel is located at around 7-8 minutes walk from the Wenceslas Square, where you can catch the metro to the downtown or a tram to the castle. There's a convenience store 200 meters from the hotel open until late.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
If you are going by plane to Prague, I highly recommend the shuttle services, that cost around 25 euros and will get you to the hotel very fast.

Dear Guest,
It was a pleasure reading your detailed review, I am sure many Trip Advisor users will appreciate it. We are happy that you are one of the guests who leave with an unforgettable impression and will come back one day, we will be looking forward to that. Thank you for your comment regarding limited choice of channels, it a pity you didn’t ask our staff for assistance because it sounds like you did not switch to the foreign section of the channels and rather stayed only at the Czech ones. Next time you visit, we will be more than happy to assist you!
Best Regards
Hotel Team
