“A Little Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We have just arrived back having spent 3 nights at the Unitas in Prague. We chose the hotel based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. It is so easy to get to by public transport and is situated in a quiet street (opposite a police station) but only 5 minutes walk from the bustling old town square and the same to Wenceslas Square. Also the tram stop was just around the corner from where you could get a tram right up to the castle.
We were greeted with champagne on arrival and all the receptionists on duty while we were there spoke good english and were extremely pleasant and helpful. Indeed we were upgraded to a larger suite which was great. The choice for breakfast each morning, both hot and cold, was plentiful and set you up for the day.
Also included was free wifi throughout the hotel.

Prague is a lovely city and staying in the Unitas made it all the better. Would recommend the Unitas for anyone heading to Prague!

My husband and I stayed here for three nights on our 10 year anniversary vacation to Europe. We couldn't have been happier... The champagne upon our arrival, very courteous front desk receptionists, topped by a surprise upgrade to a larger suite made for a perfect start to our vacation. The breakfast was amazing with so much to choose from and the rooms are quiet due to old thick walls of previous convent. 5-10 minute walk to the main square...we definitely recommend this hotel.

We arrived at the Unitas, once a Convent, well ahead of the published check-in time but nevertheless received a warm welcome along with an explanation that the room was still being prepared. The Receptionist offered to store our luggage whilst we conducted an initial exploration of Prague.
On our return to the hotel we were greeted with an ice-cold glass of champagne and our luggage was retrieved from its safe storage. Check-in was a brief formality and included an introduction to the hotel's facilities and services - all given in excellent English.
The room was large and the en-suite bathroom almost as big. The location of the Unitas, away from the main thoroughfares gave it an incredibly peacefulness but the highlights of the Old Town and it's plentiful and diverse range of bars and restaurants was just short stroll away.
We expected breakfast to be the usual continental fayre but it was anything but! The buffet table 'groaned' under the weight of every conceivable item of morning food, breads, cheeses, meats, cereals, pastries and a range of hot food including some very local specialities. A limited number of a la carte dishes were also available to order. I gave up trying to empty my coffee cup before a member of staff would appear, as if by magic, to offer a refill.
The staff on the Reception desk were always willing to provide information on local attractions, to arrange bookings to special attractions or just call a reliable and timely taxi.
Our only (very minor!) criticism of this hotel is the absence of tea & coffee making facilities in the room. Instead there were 'Tea & Coffee Corners' on each floor. In our case that meant completing almost a full circumnavigation of the hotel!
Prague was well worth the visit and thanks to the great people in the Unitas a very comfortable stay also.

It's hard to imagine wanting to stay anywhere else (unless one want luxury amenities). This 22-room hotel is absolutely charming. The staff is very friendly and speaks English (if, like us, you don't speak Czech). We just spent six nights here and also found them very helpful in setting up taxis and other minor items via e-mail. The establishment is in excellent repair and built within an old convent . . . and a former secret police building and prison. We expected a continental breakfast, but is was unbelievably varied and delicious. There were even Heinz beans and grilled tomatoes for our British friends.

We walked to every quarter and everything we wanted to see in Prague from the Hotel, including the main train station.

We've already recommended this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room facing the courtyard and it was very quiet. But, the street itself is very tran...

Being a guest in the Hotel Unitas is a magnificent experience in every way. Everyone who works here are friendly and courteous and accomodating. You will be greeted upon check in with a complimentary glass of Bohemian bubbly. Every effort will be made to accomodate special requests throughout your stay.
The hotel is on a quiet street but within walking distance of most of the attractions and the river. The trams are at the corner and transit tickets are sold at the front desk. The complimentary breakfast is not to be missed! As well as a creative and plentiful buffet, you will be offered an a la carte menu. Again for a special brunch, bubbly is included! As well small appetizers will greet you later in the afternoon.
The rooms are spacious with high ceilings and upgraded bathroom facilities, with very comfortable beds. There is TV in different languages as well as a DVD player with movies available.
This was one of the best hotels we have stayed in anywhere, especially for the reasonable price. If you are going to be in Prague make sure this is your home away from home.

I initially had doubts about booking this hotel, as the price was much lower than the other hotels I was considering. Based on trip advisor reviews, I decided to book here and it ended up being a great decision. I had a wonderful three night stay and would not hesitate to return.

The location was perfect for me. It was about five minutes from Old Town Square. It was also very close to the tram 22 stop, which goes to Prague Castle, and the Mustek metro stop for lines A and B. There were many excellent, well priced restaurants nearby. I think the location was very convenient being there as a tourist, but I was also able to avoid the noise and crowds that come with staying right in the center of Old Town.

The hotel was very comfortable and service was very good. The room was large by European standards. Despite staying there for four days with my husband, we never felt crowded. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The surrounding area was quiet at night. Housekeeping was very good. Staff at the front desk were very polite and helpful. They provided many "extras", such as a complimentary ipad/tablet to borrow, afternoon snacks in the lobby, DVDs/books to borrow and complimentary coffee/tea on each floor throughout the day. Wifi was excellent- free, fast, reliable and without any password. Breakfast was very good and included a la carte hot options and a large buffet.

The only thing that could be improved is service at breakfast. It was difficult to get anyone's attention to place an order, but I think this was related to how busy they were and not a lack of interest. This is a small point and could be avoided by ordering as soon as you are seated.

Overall, this hotel provided excellent value, especially as the rate included free wifi and breakfast. I was very satisfied with the location and comfort.

Great hotel in lovely Prague!

Just back from Prague on a 3 night stay – would recommend the Unitas to anyone, if I went back to Prague I wouldn’t book elsewhere!

Hotel
Firstly all staff are a credit to the hotel, (reception desk, breakfast staff and cleaners) – friendly, helpful, efficient and polite.
Check in was fast, with complimentary champagne whilst checking in and free water in the room on arrival which was a nice touch. They ordered taxis to and from the airport for us which were on time and cost 550 Cz K. I had e-mailed the hotel beforehand and asked if there was any chance we could have a quiet room, on a high floor, we got this request and the room was also huge, not sure if it was an upgrade as the hotel seemed quiet!
We heard no noise all the time we were there, maybe due to the layout and we also backed onto the courtyard. It’s very quaint and has great character and extremely clean.
Breakfast was good, lots of choice and service great. As others have said, there are coffee corners on each floor and coffee in the room, as well as mini bar and safe and plenty of storage for a few nights stay. They have snacks around tea time if you wanted to take one after arriving back from your day in Prague. There is free internet use, the rooms were warm but also had air conditioning if you wanted.
It’s located on a quiet safe street and 5 minutes away from the old town square! And maybe 5 – 10 minutes away from Charles Bridge.
Please everyone make a comment and try and get this lovely hotel to number one on Trip Advisor!!

Prague
Lovely, pretty, picturesque city.
The old town and old town square were nicest in my opinion, quaint little cobbled streets, nice buildings and entertainers and horse and carriage trips (800 cz K for 20 minutes), with crowds around the astronomical clock – which I thought was a little overhyped!
The old town reminded me of Bruges, York and Dubrovnik if anyone has been there to compare it to.
We climbed up the tower which had good views (also has a lift) and only a few pound each.
Charles Bridge is obviously worth a look and views of the castle are good from here!
We went to the Castle and watched the Changing of the guard- we didn’t pay to see some of it so can’t comment on all of it.
The Loreto isn’t far from the Castle and from around there you can walk to get the Funicular to Petrin Hill to see the Petrin tower and gardens. We also saw the Ukraine church in there. It’s a nice area to get away from hustle and bustle.

Wenceslas Square is nicer than I thought some of the buildings down there are lovely. We only went here during the day. It has been compared to Champs Elysee Paris

The Jewish area and synagogues were nice to see, didn’t go into the cemetery as thought it was expensive for the size of it about £20 each.

We didn’t do the Hop on / off bus as we were informed it wasn’t great and instead we went on an hour boat cruise, which was nice but you can see everything on foot – you won’t miss out by not doing a bus/boat trip!

Restaurants - A Divadlo Pokracuje near Castle / Loreto area was nice for lunch which we stumbled across – Beef goulash and dumplings was good! …..
Konvikt near Hotel Unitas (same road) was dark and atmospheric and again Czech traditional had the sausage and bread to start and duck and dumplings, lovely but too much!! Worth the money though as wasn’t expensive for the portions and a hit with locals. (just very smokey).
Had a nice authentic Mexican lunch at Las Adelitas Restaurante & Tequila Bar near the old town square, not expensive, good service and fresh with an open kitchen, good menu choice.
Le Vigne was a lovely Italian off the old square, again not expensive, tasted home cooked and portions ok with good service.
We knew smoking inside bars and restaurants is still permitted in Prague but didn’t expect it to be quite as bad as it was, some places were unbearable as I’m asthmatic so be aware of that!


Would recommend to anyone and go again!
