“Cancelled room reservation on our day of arrival w/out prior notice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have been accommodated in this hotel several times as returning guests and have always been satisfied until recently. What happened the last time was the following: Despite the fact that we had booked our room well in advance (on 18 July, 2013) in order to gain a reasonable price in peak season - which was one month before our arrival, on the day of our arrival we were informed that "due to technical issues our room was overbooked as one of the rooms of a whole group". We were told by the receptionist that they had booked us a room in a "nearby" hotel "of the same or even a bit better quality" - Orea Hotel Pyramida (also 4 * hotel, actually). So they called&paid the taxi for us to get there (one of the positives). Well, we agreed - what else could we have done... However, the quality of the room and the service was not the same what we had originally paid for to have at Praga. Also, the re-booked room in the other hotel was much farther from the city center on foot than Praga. Praga's rating at booking is higher than Pyramida's, which I knew from the start. It should have been Hotel Praga's first duty to inform us about the circumstances BEFORE our arrival, especially as our booking was made one month beforehand. We were not offered any discount, only an apology. What we suspect is that they had sold the room in the high season for much higher price and they just got rid of us. The whole experience shook our trust in Hotel Praga 1885 and we will have to look for other alternatives.

I visited this hotel this august with my girlfriend. We both really like it. However there was one main disadvantage, there is no air conditioner so if you close the window it will be hot and if not you will listen trams and cars but we lived with view on a littke street so we didn't really hear the noise from the main street.

Plus
Short distance to the metro
Some good restaurants around (see tripadvisor list of hotels)
The best bed we had on our three week holliday

Since we had no airco we opened the window but that meant streetnoise ++++

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were lucky and got a free upgrade as all the standard rooms were booked, so had a superior room. It was very clean, we liked the decor and there was a balcony. The trams going past were loud and some people in the night were noisy going past the hotel, but I slept fine with my earplugs on. Bed was very comfy. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine but the heat wave in Prague at the time of our visit was a bit problematic, a lot of the things on the breakfast buffet looked like they had spent too much time in the heat so I ate only a few things. Other than that, the selection was quite okay. Location is good, we liked Smichov "centre" about 5min from the hotel. Metro station there, shopping possibilities (including Tesco for food) and nice restaurants.
All in all, for the price, a great hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of the street have a lot of street noise.

Four stars do this hotel no justice.

Room is very clean, has Internet, safe deposit box, mini bar, TV (which you probably would never turn on, but nevertheless it's there). The staff changes the towels daily.

Room decor is very pleasant, and in the 1885 mood. Breakfast is always delicious, with great variety of food, from cornflakes to eggs with bacon.

Location of the hotel is fantastic, regardless of the fact that it is located in district 5. Andel metro station is nearby, and the tram station which takes you to the city center is only 20 meters away.

A little distance from the main city sights but it was no hardship for a 5 min walk for either a tram, bus or metro, ticket system very easy to master. The room was clean and comfortable with daily maid service, the buffet breakfast offered a wide choice and the decor inside the hotel was a nice susprise, as a single traveller it offered everything I wanted

Room Tip: I slept at the rear, the front could probably be noisy but what do I know I'm deaf.
