“Budget hotel close to the center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Location: 10 minutes walking to Wenceslas square, quite acceptable.
A Metro station is very nearby (literally on the other side of the street), and its only 2 stops to the central station. Restaurants are also nearby.

Hotel/Rooms: Tight corridors led to my room, which was not large in size but clean and tidy. Wifi was not good in the room, only in the lobby. Breakfast was kinda below average.

Summary: Worth the stay due to its location, cleanliness, and mainly the price!

The hotel was situated in a very good location and within walking distance of the main attractions.

The rooms we're spacious and clean however could hear the lift bleeping (room 406) every 5 mins which was very annoying.

The only bad thing about our trip was the receptionist called Mariaka ( blonde hair , mid forties and a sour face). She was very rude, no manners, kept speaking to us abruptly.

If the hotel wants to continue getting good reviews, then needs to give her some training and feedback.

We spent the week after Easter 2014 at this hotel. The staff very helpful to the point of one night employee stopping off at a department store to buy me some scissors I needed. As noted in other reviews, the hotel is located very close to the tram and metro station and just a few minutes walk from the heart of the main central tourist areas but located on the end of a side street so the room was quiet without traffic noise. The morning breakfast buffet, located in the Indian Restaurant, was excellent with a great deal of variety. The room was large with a large bathroom, a microwave and small refrigerator. We were very happy with our stay. The price was a little higher than we wanted to pay but it was the last available room in a tourist season so to be expected.

Nice, clean modern rooms. Breakfast was good, lots of different options. The location is great, close to the metro, and 5 min by tram or metro to the center of Prague.
The staff was nice to me because I spoke to them in Czech, however not as friendly/nice to the French couple checking in at the same time as me. So dont expect the same treatment as the locals (unfortunately this is quite common in Prague).
Absolutely HATED the fact that you can smoke in the lobby. Which made the nice hotel look very cheap and trashy.

We visited Prague for 2014 new year's eve and we stayed in Ankora hotel. The hotel is in Praha 2 zone meaning a 15 minutes walk to the get into Venceslao and the price was very competitive.

Pro:
- price
- room and bathroom very big (vip apartment typology)
- metro and tram stops (we used only once to reach the castle in 15/20 minutes)
Con:
- wifi only in the lobby
- smoking allowed inside
- position not so near the center by walk (15 minutes uphill on the way back)

Room Tip: Vip Apartment are very confortable

The Ankora Hotel was a great choice for us. We got the luxery double-bed, so the room included a jacuzzi, which was well worth it. the jacuzzi was a little small, but romantically comfortable for two. We enjoyed the hotel and the area, and found it very convenient to jump on the tram each morning. We found using the trams was more convenient, and more fun, than taking the metro (U-bahn). The hotel staff was not overly friendly, but adequately nice. The room included a small mini fridge and kitchenette, which was also a plus. We would consider staying here again when in Prague.

Room Tip: The luxury rooms include a wonderful hot tub!
