“Nice hotel, but a bit far from all of the action”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I stayed for 4 nights at the Hotel Praga 1885 and it was a very nice hotel, although the location is a bit far from all of the excitement in Prague. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful with my questions on transportation and local sites to see. The breakfast was good and had a combination of hot (scrambled eggs, sausage) and cold (ham, cheese, pastries) items. The hotel is conveniently located on several tram lines and can get you anywhere in Prague in 20 to 30 minutes. The only downsides to this hotel is that the location is a bit out of the way and does require long walks or public transportation to get to the heart of Prague. Also, the street noise can be loud, especially when you have the window open which is the only option for air conditioning. All in all, a nice hotel with good amenities.

Room Tip: Try and select one away from the main and side streets.

Long story short:
It was a pleasant stay, both times - with nice and cozy rooms, helpful staff and tasty breakfast. I recommend this hotel for a nice weekends or even for a longer stay.

Full version:
This was our second visit of this hotel. Both times we used discount packages bought through one of the discount portals. At first we chose the hotel because of its location (1min walk from event we wanted to attend) but this year we had to change the date of our visit, so we were there just to see the city. Location is quite good and hotel decorations are really exclusive. Rooms are regular sized with nice bathroom.

Staff was nice, especially one of the reception clerk who had the patience to deal with stressed girl who managed to shut her safe without setting the open code - yeah, me. She even made clear to me, that it happens quite often and I don't need to be stressed about it. Also, on both our visits we came quite late in the evening (23:00-24:00) and they had no problem dealing with check-in at that time.

We also had breakfast buffet and although it was quite the same both days of both visits, there was nice selection of cold sweet and regular meals for breakfast as well as some hot breakfast options. All nice and tasty.

Bonus tip: Not very far away from the hotel (nice short walk) is a Zlaty Klas pub/restaurant which offered some nice and tasty meals for nice price. Be warned - it might get pretty overcrowded in the evenings. Also, be sure to visit Zoo in Prague, which is really really big (so keep in mind to have enough time for the visit).

I stayed there for only 1 night with a group of friends. We traveled to Prague by bus and it was near the bus station. Clean, quiet and a very good location. We took the bus and the metro to the center. The breakfast was excellent- we actually did not anything until late afternoon. One cool thing was the tram that passed nearby and we could hear the noise late at night. Would go again if I visit Prague

Good location, but the room need some renovation done. We were there for only one night do to a surgery, so overall if you are not spending to much time in the hotel it is a ok hotel to stay at. The ibis would be a better choice

I stayed here on business and got in on a Saturday evening. The hotel is very nice, clean, comfortable. Breakfast is buffet style and very adequate. The restaurant is not open on weekends for lunch or dinner, but there is a small mini mart store right next to it and a restaurant. Also the shopping mall is just 5 minutes away.
VERY friendly staff. Very helpful, they try very hard, speak English and German. There is free WIFI in the room as well as TV with Russian, German, English and Czech channels.
I would come back and can recommend it.

This hotel is a bit more than I usually needed, pretending to be luxury hotel. As for me (I am not that luxury traveller, I must admit!) it is nice place to stay, well-connected to the old city. Good sleep quality and tasty breakfast, friendly staff. The only minus is an absence of dedicated parking place, however, I was lucky to find a parking slot in time (and didn't drove anywhere until we left Prague).

I stayed at the Hotel Praga 1885 2 nights and i was totally satisfied. The room was really nice and clean, people were friendly and mostly smiling, breakfast was fresh and tasty. The hotel was far from the center of Prague and we had to use the car at any case. Nevertheless, we could find parking places relatively easy near the Hotel. The only negative aspekt was that smoking wasn t really forbidden, at least not at the reception area.
