“OK for Tour Group, but otherwise ...?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We stayed at the Dorint Don Giovanni as part of a Grand Circle Travel Danube river cruise tour. I give it a mixed review. The hotel has a clean and spacious lobby. Our room was also clean and spacious, quiet and comfortable. The hotel is located away from the city center, but there is a subway station as well as a streetcar stop nearby. Free wi-fi is available in the lobby. The food at the bar was reasonably good; and the breakfast buffet, although crowded, was also reasonably good.
However, some features of the hotel were disappointing, even strange. Our bathroom had a heavy sliding wood door that was installed backwards (amazing!). The small opening to push the door open from inside the bathroom allowed only inches to slide it without crushing your fingers. In addition, the shower head flew off when the water was turned on fully, and there were hardly any electrial outlets in the room.
On our stay, numerous tour groups packed the lobby and bar/restaurant area. The crowds were so excessive on the first night of our stay that the bar and wait staff could not keep up. It was pure chaos. So my question is, "If you are not part of a tour group, why would you stay here?"

Well, the Dorint Don Giovanni Praha is a typical Business Hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean. But unfortunately the Wifi did not work although being advertised. It's always the details where yu can see the difference. For instance the shower head was old and full of scratches. Otherwise the equipment of the rooms is ok. The prices of the minibar are very expensive (6€ for a bottle of water). Breakfast was very nice, huge selection of different foods. The city centre is eas to reach with the metro.

found the desk staff quite good but the lobby bar staff is clueless, extremely slow and has no bartending skill. The breakfast staff could care less if your table is cleaned. The food selection for breakfast is good but tables are not promptly cleaned when guests leave, so finding a spot is troublesome. Location is fine for those who like subways or trams, but may be intimidating for novice travelers. Rooms are fine. A good budget hotel.

This hotel is very big and busy with lots of groups. It is just average in every way. The staff is minimally helpful and the breakfast just so-so. Good location near a subway stop. Nothing much in way of stores or services in the neighborhood. I had my laundry done and they charged an outrageous price.

The staff were great. Location ok if you are comfortable using the subway and are on a budget. Internet was not always available and slow. Biggest dislike was the huge crowds of budget tour groups, shouting and pushing. Not a good experience. Breakfast was too crowded, again groups pushing. Food ran out, warm juice, no seats. Rooms too hot, windows only open slightly. Smell of cigarette smoke in room.

Room Tip: Subway tickets available at desk. ATM in subway station.

I stayed at this hotel for one night and received a nice suite. i had a good sallad in the bar, the breakfast was ok with a lot of good bread. There was some frequent alarm from the room next door during the night which made my sleep s little worse.

If you have business near the tv tower in Prauge this is a nice business hotel at reasonable value for room. Room looks just like picture at tripadvisor from the hotel. Irdinary standard but 6 eur for small waterbottle is crazy price. I stayed at executive floor. Beds and pillows are not comfortable but i managef to get sleep anyway. Its a german hotelgroup so most tv channels are german. Small breakfast and i got a glass filled with black dirt or something. If you are a tourist wanting to be close to downtown do not book this hotel. If you are businesd traveller one night is ok for the price you pay.
