“Clean, Central, Standard!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Average prIce, for an average stay.
You get what you pay for to be honest. No frills, very standard but the staff were helpful with helping you find and get to tourist attractions.
We had children with us and were worried about the 'party/stag/hen nights' but saw non of this.

I am very satisified with our 3 nights stay at the hotel. The Staff is amazing - helpful, skillful and good In english. The breakfast is highly recommended, varied and palatable - the best scrambled egg i ever tasted. The wellness area is very good. I enjoyed the sauna and the pool. The corridors smell good - i feel relaxed. The room is big for us with one child. My daughter enjoyed the kapla area. The location is a bit far from wenceslas square but it does not matter, it can be reached by walking or by tram. There are many cheap restaurants nearby so dining is not a problem if you are on a tight budget. My only complain was the floor in the bathroom because it was cold - we were there last Jan 17 -21, winter time. It would be best if it is heated. The transport service to The Airport is well recommended. I highly recommended this hotel to everyone and we will definitely comeback again.

Place is in a nice location, requires some walking to city's attractions, but it is close to metro IP Pavlova.

Rooms are clean, bright and well maintained.

Breakfast was great, but expensive compared to other good options around the hotel.

I booked this hotel as I expected it to be near Wenceslas Square. It is a good taxi ride away. As the unregulated taxis in Prague are notorious. This was a bit of a spoiler to a great weekend. I paid about £15 GBP for a taxi home, as a regulated one is difficult to find sometimes.

Apart from this, the hotel is reasonably priced. The public areas are modern and well maintained. The rooms are pretty basic, but spotless and well maintained.

Breakfast is pretty average.

I would not stay again, mainly due to its location.

We were not necessarily unhappy with this hotel, it is still what most travelers are looking for, a clean comfy room with the necessary amenities.
The hotel feels dated with the corridors and rooms needing an update, the location was not as close to Wenceslas Square as we expected. It is a decent walk to most attractions (which suited us as we got to explore the less touristy areas of Prague). The metro station (IP Pavlova) is about 2 blocks away, it is close to the station but when you first arrive can be hard to locate.
We didn't bother with breakfast here, you can have a great value for money breakfast at cafés around the city.

I am trying to separate my disappointment with what Prague has become (very touristy and lost its charm) with my review of the Novotel. We booked this hotel last minute and chose it because the kids love the Novotel. Overall, I can say it is average. The room itself was typical Novotel and so everything was standard, clean and comfortable. While the kids love the games at the Novotel, we book it because we know what to expect, and the room met this goal.

We agree with a previous review 100%. We were very disappointed in the pool. We arrived Friday night and saw people luxuriating in the pool. On Saturday, when we went to go swimming, the first thing I heard was a man asking the woman at the pool if they could warm up the pool. I thought it wasn't a good sign. Well, the kids couldn't really enjoy it, the water was so cold. If kids can't swim in the water, that tells you how cold it was. I do feel like we were cheated on the pool.

Breakfast was OK, but I thought not as good as many other Novotels. There was just not the variety- no pancakes, oatmeal....

The fitness center seemed quite good for a hotel although we didn't use it this time.

The location was walkable to the old town, but it was a good 20 minutes down the hill and probably 25 back up.

The kids corner was not up to the standard of other Novotels- as there was no Xbox-- trust me, the kids noticed.
