“Biggest surprise of my trip to Prague!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

"Wow" is what I can say in summary!

I expected this to be the typical European 3* "heritage"-type hotel (ie. efficient service and small functional rooms while going through the motions of providing a free breakfast). Boy, was I wrong!

Quite honestly, this hotel out-did the three other 5* hotels I stayed at in Prague, Krakow and Budapest. While it did not have some of the 5* amenities (eg. a swimming pool) that I would never use while on a European city vacation anyway, it out-did itself on the basics - service and rooms.

The whole hotel was beautifully decorated (the pictures don't do it justice) and architecturally interesting, as it is a recently-converted abbey. The decor is definitely not "heritage hotel" but actually a nice blend of traditional with sleek and modern. Not only is it spotless, but it looks so new that I asked if the hotel had been renovated recently - not since it opened (in 2008?) I was informed!

The room was enormous and had very high ceilings, and the bed was super comfortable. There was a surprising amount of closet space and electrical outlets (often a problem I find in hotels)! Definitely not your cookie-cutter room, as a lot of the 5* ones, though luxurious, become. Even the toiletries in the bathroom were luxurious and boutique-ish.

Unlike a 5* hotel, there were not service staff all over the place, but the service we got (at the front desk and at breakfast) was very warm, efficient and helpful.

The location is very good too - it's very quiet and would seem to be on the outskirts of town, but if you knew your way, it was less than 10 mins to the main market square.

Breakfast matched or beat any 5* hotel I've stayed at in Europe. While there wasn't heaps and heaps of each kind of food given the moderate size of the hotel, I was stunned at both the variety and quality of the food. It didn't taste like a pre-prepared buffet, and there must have been some 30-40 items at the table. I never saw something like that at a hotel of this size.

Finally, what a great value in what seems to be becoming an expensive city to visit. I got a 5* experience for around US$125 at one of the busiest times of the year. Can't beat that!

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Prague.

Grleat location in the heart of Prague yet very quiet street. Within walking distance of all major attractions, and close to many bars and restaurants. The staff were very efficient and helpful, always pleasant. The rooms were big and bright and sparkling clean. Bathroom equiped with all key amenities (electirical plugs, hair dryer, shampoo & conditioner, shower cap, magnified mirror etc). Breakfast was delicious and served in an elegant room by a very attentive and friendly staff.
No tea/coffee facilities in the room.

Just returned from the Unitas where we stayed for five nights to celebrate new year in Prague. I have tried very hard to find any negatives about the hotel but can't. The only negatives I can think of is that because we booked our trip so late we were unable to book directly with the Unitas and so booked via bookings.com and paid an average of £200 per night :0( but that was our choice.. and besides, all kinds of accommodation can be ridiculously expensive at this time of year in Prague ....one other negative was that the wifi connection kept cancelling but then again I'm not sure if it was my iPad being the problem or the hotels server ...but on saying this we had a fabulous stay at this hotel. Or room was large with a lovely bathroom, breakfast was excellent , plenty of choice and the food was fresh. All the staff we encountered were so very helpful and polite at all times and as for cleanliness? Well this hotel gleams!!! I would highly recommend this hotel and if we return to Prague, this is where we shall stay ! A very big Thank you and well done to the Unitas ! A classy , unpretentious, peaceful haven set in a good location ... Loved it!!!

This building is surprisingly tranquil and quiet despite being five minutes from the centre of the city. The rooms are large and attractive and the fittings modern and clean. Little touches like the lit candles on the steps outside and tea time snacks in the reception made a good hotel special. The staff were young and helpful and always cheerful. Breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day. It is hard to think of anything negative to say to balance the review!

we stayed here in December. Firstly Prague is a wonderful city, but this hotel is in a nice quiet street not far from the city centre. They have a car park out back too which is so convenient. The staff were lovely and helpful too. The room was HUGE..it was like a suite, we were so amazed. The bathroom was qutie big too with a lovely bath, it was all quite modern. What we especially loved was the adorable tea and coffee corners on each floor. So, even though your room doesn't have tea and coffee making facilities you can just walk to the coffee and tea corner on your floor and make a drink, it even has a little table and chairs where you can sit and read and drink your coffee! The location was lovely and quiet and we slept well. Breakfast here was great too, lots of choice and lovely service. Would definitely stay again, thank you Unitas Hotel!!
