“Great Value, Budget Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2009

Good budget hotel in the Nove Mestro district. We had a quiet room at the back of the hotel on the first floor - there is a busy main road out front so there could be some noise from traffic. The room was basic but clean and tidy. It had air-conditioning, TV, fridge, bathroom with hairdryer & shower (shampoo/soap/shower caps provided).

Breakfast was buffet style with a selection of bread/rolls, cold meats, cheese, cereals & yoghurts. Coffee was available from a machine or pot with hot or cold milk. There was also a good range of teas available.

The staff were friendly, helpful & the front desk is manned 24 hours. The automatic doors are locked after about 11pm, but a ring on the front doorbell will get the night porter's attention.

From the hotel it's about 20 mins walk to Wenceslas Square & another 10-15 mins to the Old Town Square or Charles Bridge. There are frequent buses & trams, but we used the metro. The I P Pavlova station is less than 5 mins walk from the hotel and from here you can easily access all the main sights. Tickets cost 100kc for 24 hours travel. Time stamp the ticket before the escalators, and you can use it on all trains, buses, trams & also the funicular at Petrin Park.

From the airport we used Cedaz Minibus service, which has a booth near the exit. They charge 480kc to the hotel. There is also a bus service to Wenceslas Square.

A couple of recommendations for eating out:
Sherwood Restaurant & Bar
5 mins walk from Wenceslas Square. Walk down Opletalova - it's on a corner on the left hand side. Great value, excellent well presented food (Czech/pasta/steak/international). Good selection of wines & Staropramen on tap.

Corleone
A bit of a trek, but worth it. Take the metro yellow line to Andel in the Smichov district, the restaurant is on the corner of Na Belidle. This is an Italian restaurant with a great value selection of pastas & pizza. Don't worry if it looks busy upstairs as there is a large non-smoking area downstairs.

Recommended Bars:
U Vejvodu
A restaurant & bar on the corner of Jilska & Vejvodova, 5 mins from the Old Town Square.
Upstairs is a bar with great atmosphere & Urquell at 29Ck. Downstairs is a beer hall restaurant serving traditional Czech food.

U Medvidku
Traditional Czech pub on Na Perstyne 7. A bit smoky, but great atmosphere.

El Mojito
Cocktail bar on Dlouha, 5 mins walk from the Old Town Square on the left hand side. Over 300 cocktails to choose from (including 25 different Mojitos). Pleasant relaxing bar with a spanish feel.

A good hotel for budget travelers.
Clean room, a little bit dated.
bathroom small but oke.
Airconditioning not super, its not possible to shut it down.
4th floor is smoking free.
Frontside rooms maybe a lttle bit noisy, rooms on the back are very quiet.
Staff is friendly and helpfull.
Breakfast, only cold, is good and offers everything you need.
Conclusion: What do you need else? nothing.
Good hotel for a good price.
We would come back again.

Worth it if you get a good deal (E51 Euros double room) 22 tram takes you to the Prague castle & the Danube River from just around the corner. Very quiet and air conditioned. Does not have wifi, & there is only one computer you can use in hotel. Service is ordinary. Breakfast was very plain, fruit out of a can and stale cornflakes!!. Room was clean with soap, shampoo provided. Photos on the website make it look better than what it is.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in May in a twin room. The room was pleasantly decorated and was very clean and light. The room had a tv, fridge, wardrobe and the bathroom with shower and hairdryer was fine. The room has no tea/coffee making facilities so we took a travel kettle and made our own. The dining area is spacious and airy and our room was quiet.

The breakfast provided is self service. You can help yourself to various cereals, fruit, yoghurts, croissants,dougnuts, bread, jams, cheese and hams. The coffee/hot chocolate is self service by drinks machine and you make your own tea however you like it with a variety of different teas.

The staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel is about a ten minute walk from Wenceslas Square and five minute walk from a metro stop. Its cheaper to buy a 24 hour ticket each day for the trams/metro rather than a 72 hour ticket which is more expensive for some reason. Be careful when you cross on a pedestrian crossing even if the green light is flashing. Some drivers dont seem to want to stop and some of the speeds in the town centre are very high. We found that that trams were packed full between 8 and 9.30 so we used the metro instead which was less congested and easy to use.

If you buy bottles of water don't buy it in Wenceslas Square.There is a tesco express shop and other one stop shops a few side streets away (you will see the signpost). It is much cheaper there.

If you run out of Czech money on your last day and you have some english money you can eat at Rocky OReilly's Irish pub which is off Wenceslas Square (You will see people handing out leaflets). You can pay in english money,euros or czech money there and the food is quite good as is the atmosphere. They also have a smoking and no smoking seating area.

We booked online and used prague airport transfers taxi service to get to and from the airport and the hotel. Their drivers were very friendly and arrived on time.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hotel St. George over the Easter long weekend.

Most of the other reviews sum up the hotel accurately, with the room being basic (as you'd expect from a 3 star hotel), but air-conditioned and quite large, with a large, recently rennovated bathroom. The room also had a minibar and a small TV with a lot of German and Italian channels, plus CNN and BBC World.

The location was good, as it was a 10-15 minute walk straight down the road (simply follow the other tourists from the other surrounding hotels) to the new town (Wenceslas Square), with the old town square being only a further 10 minutes walk away. It's about 5 minutes walk from a Metro and Tram stop (IP Pavlova), although we found it wasn't really worth taking the Metro given the short walk.

A benefit of being a short way out from the tourist areas is that prices were much more reasonable in the restaurants and bars, and we found them to have better quality food and customer service than the tourist traps of Wenceslas and the Old Town Squares. There was also a small 24 hour shop nearby for other supplies.

Despite what other reviews said, the breakfast was quite good for the standard of hotel, with the typical european fare of fresh breads, cold meats, cheese, yoghurts and cerals. There was also a selection of teas, and decent coffee from a machine. A nice touch was the painted boiled eggs on Easter Sunday.

They use actual keys rather than electronic locks on the doors, which they ask you to leave at reception on your way out otherwise the room won't be cleaned. We also accidentally locked our keys in the room and had to wait downstairs in the reception area until a cleaner with a spare key would be found.

The only real downsides to the hotel was that the neighbourhood felt a little rough (we didn't experience any problems though) and it didn't have a proper hotel bar, only an area in the lobby with a range of bottled beers and spirits. Although being Prague, draught beer is never far away!

If you need transport to and from the Prague airport, I can personally recommend http://www.prague-airport-shuttle.com/ . The drivers were Americans living in Prague and on-time, courteous and very professional. It costs the same as a taxi should cost, and you pay in cash after the trip.
