“Nice but seriously, you have to pay for the tea&coffee in your room...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I really like hotels that are not too big and that are placed in beautiful historical buildings. Well, this one was definitely it. We were a bit surprised to find out it's located on a main four lane road but thankfully our room faced the interior yard and was absolutely quiet (except for the occasional noise from the elevator right next to our room). The decor is nice, the room is huge and the breakfast was fine as well. To get to the historical center you either take the metro, which is close, or you walk, it was a comfortable, half an hour stroll.
The only downside was the paid coffee and tea in the room. Seriously, never heard of this throughout Europe, you either have coffee service in your room or you don't but not that you are offered one but asked to pay like for the mini bar.
If you're local, you may find it strange that one of the receptionists will only speak to you in English despite being Czech herself. Why, we really didn't understand, but the other receptionist was fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the interior yard.

Dear Nina,
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. Taking into consideration the attractive prices of accommodation in a top 4* hotel, we do not have mini-bar and coffee/tea complimentary; however, anyone can definitely enjoy it at an affordable price if they want to. Regarding your comment of English speaking receptionists, I suppose she didn’t know you spoke Czech/Slovakian as well, otherwise she would definitely speak Czech to you since we do not have any restrictions on that for our hotel personnel. Once you know when you will be coming, please contact us directly so we provide you with our best offer for regular guests.
Have a nice day!

We booked 2 double rooms for 4 nights in Alquish Downtown Hotel. The hotel is very good located. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from metro (I.P.Pavlova). However, it is also easy to reach Museum and Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí) by foot. It took around 10 - 15 minutes. The staff was very friendly, they answered all our questions. As we had late arrival, they recommended good restaurants and bars nearby. They also highlighted main city sights on the map as well as provided us with a 24 hours transport card and helped with currency exchange. The breakfast was included into the room price and was good. Finally, the price for the room was really reasonable. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Having stayed in a variety of hotels and hostels in Europe in the past month it was a delight to stay at Alqush Hotel. The service was friendly and informative. The hotel is situated out of Old Town Prague but the metro is very close by and it was very easy to purchase metro tickets from the front desk and go off for an adventure each day. The breakfast consisted of a large selection of quality breakfast items which were more than adequate. The room was nicely lit and the large bed was comfortable. I would definitely stay at this accommodation again.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for four nights when we visited prague for the first time.
It was the perfect place to stay, really lovely to return there at the end of a long day.
The staff were friendly and accommodating, they answered all of our questions - and spoke great English, German, and czech. The rooms are immaculate and spacious, there was aircon and a safe in our room.
The free breakfast wasn't the best I've ever had, but considering it was included in the price I think it worked out fantastic value for money.
Lastly, it is close enough to walk to the main sights if you fancy a longer walk, but it is also really easy to jump on the underground/tram from this hotel :)

A good hotel, great staff...we had a room at the back, overlooking the garden and it was quiet, perfectly comfortable, no problems at all. The staff were very helpful and professional, happy to help. Breakfast is very good, lots of interesting local and traditional European choices. The hotel is close to a metro station, tram stops, so easy enough to get to on public transport from the airport, and an easy walk to the museum end of Wenceslas Square. There are bars and restaurants close by. If you're going to Prague for a few days and want a good hotel at a reasonable price then this should be on your list of places worth considering.

Room Tip: Might be better getting a room at the back and higher up.

Hotels location is very easy to find, just 5 minutes far from I.P.Pavlova metro station(red line), when you reach hotel you will see newly renovated cosy building followed by warm welcome at reception. We stayed in room 351 and again had a feeling of cosy, romantic room)) what impressed me was that the staff was very helpful even with couple of our 'out of box' request. Breakfast was tasteful wide selection of international food and even homemade Czech pastries.
Overall very pleasant stay for a great value.

Room Tip: 351 from my experience-very cosy room)

We spent 5 nights in Alqush Downtown Hotel and I have to say everything was perfect – great staff, clean and cozy rooms, comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, and delicious breakfast with hot and cold food. There is also parking available right in front of the hotel and it’s monitored, but you need to make a reservation ahead of time. I recommend changing money in the hotel, they had much better rate than we’ve seen in about 4 places in the center where they stated 0% commission! You can also buy stamps for postcards and bus, tram and metro passes at the reception – very convenient hotel, everything is in one place and provided services are top! We also used luggage room which is locked and available for guests free of charge 24/7. We will do our best to come back!

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your positive review, it made our day! We appreciate your compliments on our room design, cleanliness, breakfast and staff. You are right that it pays of changing money (we change EUR, USD, and GBP) in the hotel since our rates are based on the rates of the Czech National Bank which are published daily. We would be very glad to welcome you back soon and take care of you again. Please don’t hesitate to let us know once you consider visiting Prague again.
