“Couldn't ask for more from a city break- PERFECT location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

The hotel was excellent value.
Myself and 3 girlfriends stayed in a two bedroom family room for 2 nights.
4 huge single beds and bags of room.
The shower temperature could have been more consistent but that wasn't too much of a problem.
The breakfast was wonderful, excellent selection of fresh foods. Hot and cold!
The staff were super friendly and willing to help with anything!

The most amazing thing about the hotel was the location. 5 min walk to Charles bridge and in an area with lovely restaurants that are far far cheaper and nicer than those over the bridge.

This hotel is a perfect base for exploring Prague!

We stayed in the hotel for three nights. I can honestly say, it was one of the most enjoyable visits I've had in a long time!
The rooms were cheap and clean. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for us! (Adam was ace!!). I highly recommend it!!

Overall we thought the Waldstein warranted a 5 star review. We only stayed 1 night as we were going to Karlovy Vary the next day. We arrived late at night and received a warm and friendly welcome and a complimentary bottle of wine - a lovely touch. The room was a good size and had great character being fitted out in period furniture (which was what we wanted), with television and tea and coffee making facilities. It also had free Wifi. The bed was comfortable and with the room being quiet we had a good nights sleep. Breakfast was buffet style with a range to suit all tastes.

We stayed at the Waldstein in early May 2014. The hotel was clean and the staffs were very helpful. The buffet breakfast was all and more than you'd need, ranging from a tea or coffee to a choice of cooked eggs and bacon, cereals, fruit and a choice of different breads - all included.
The exchange rate offered by the hotel was the best we could see in our 7 day stay. They were matched a couple of times, but never beaten. We were changing Euros to Czech crowns but their Sterling/Crown rates were also very good, with no commission. The daily rate you see in their daily newsletter, is the rate you get.

We were put in a luxury suite (room 121) - which had 4 beds, lounge/tv room and bathroom.
The suite was on the dark side - with no views or direct sunlight. If your staying there, I'd ensure you had a room with views. (Natural light)

The staff at reception were extremely helpful and in particular one of the young man who told us about a Czech restaurant scam currently in play. They include a service charge on the bill total, usually 10 0r 15% AND then they include a line to say that the tip has not been included.
You do not have to pay the service charge or the tip, in fact when they tried this on - we paid only for the food which is shown as the first total and because of this, we did not pay any tip. When they didn't include this service charge - and the meal was good - we always paid an additional 10+% tip to the waiter. The authorities are aware of this and now have the authorities have their own 'tourists' catching these establishments out ‘live’ and there are some heavy fines being served out to these establishments/criminals.


The transport system is very good, with the travel ticket, 24 euros for 30 mins travel and 32 euros for 90 mins travel, on the whole system. Tram, bus, tube and funicular. This helps a lot if your travelling on both bus and tram, i.e. coming in from the airport to the hotel, Nr. 119 bus and then tram Nr. 20 – all on one ticket.

There are some very good restaurants close by, in fact two on the street (Tomasska) from the hotel to the square that leads up to the Nerudova. The 3+3+3 and the U Zlateho.

The hotel is in the Little or Lesser quarter and is literally minutes from Charles Bridge and the Old and New towns, in the centre of Prague. It is an amazing city - the hotel is ideally situated making a trip anywhere easy. At night, it is a quiet area - being amongst some of the Embassy’s, with a discreet police presence.


To sum up, good hotel, exceptional staff, hearty breakfast in a wonderful and fascinating city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with natural light, these old Czech buildings have small (quaint) windows.

When we got off the plane we got the 119 bus and then tube on the green line to Malostranke, then you follow the Valdesjnska road all the way round to the hotel that is tucked away! I got this info from a previous review and was easy to follow even in at night time. We only paid 32 Krony which is so cheap for 90 mins of travel! This is ideal and very easy to use the public transport. The Taxi price from the hotel to the airport is roughly 650 krony which isn't bad but you save a lot of money using public transport! The hotel staff are very welcoming and speak very good English. The hotel is in a very quiet part of Praha 1 and this is very ideal!!!! We were in room 301 and next to the car park and it was still very quiet apart from the sound of the odd suitcase. The breakfast is very good; everything you need and good value for money. The hotel is 2 minutes walk form the Charles Bridge. Most tourist attractions are over Charles Bridge. Apart from the Prague Castel and the Petrin (Eiffel Tower) which is a must see but very high up! You can either walk up the mountain of steps or walk further down to get the tram. Be prepared to walk alot on this trip if you are prepared to visit all the tourist attractions! The hotel staff are very helpful with this information! The night life was not as busy as i expected but the drink prices were very good!

Room Tip: It depends how fussy you are but as we only used the room to sleep and shower in we were happy with...

We stayed at Hotel Waldstein for 4 nights. The hotel is clean, comfortable and in a traditional Czech style, and the staff were helpful and friendly. It is situated in a really lovely part of Prague, just below the Castle. It seemed to be less touristy over that side of the river than the Old and New Town parts, but we preferred this, and the other side of the river was easily accessible in less than 15 minutes. My husband and I stayed in a deluxe room, which had twin beds in one room, with a double in another room and a bathroom with shower. To address a couple of concerns raised by other reviewers: Firstly, yes, the double bed is just two singles pushed together and they give you separate single duvets, but this is common in certain parts of Europe, and wasn't a problem for us at all. Secondly, yes, green beans and salad do make up part of the breakfast buffet, but you don't have to eat them! There were also what we would consider "perfectly normal" options like toast and cereal. Overall we would thoroughly recommend the Hotel Waldstein.

My partner and i stayed at the Waldstein Hotel from the 24/04/14 to 28/04/14 it was well situated with the Castle overlooking it and a short walk from the Charles Bridge etc. We thought this hotel was lovely, yes compared to the standards in England it would not be a 5 star, but we found the staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was spotless , which incidentally was a Deluxe Apartment (chuffed much)!
We had separate toilet and shower room, kitchen area with a dining table and the Hotel left a bottle of local wine as a gift.
The breakfast was really good with fresh bread/rolls, hams, cheeses, yoghurts, fruit, cereal, coffee, juice etc etc , you were always greeted with a smile and a good morning (a genuine one too).
Our only word of caution would be keep an eye on the items in the fridge , we never touched any drinks as we went to a supermarket and bought our own, on check out they had that we had drunk some Coca Cola and Water. So whether the maid had thought that the empty bottles in the bin were from that fridge (even though the brands were totally different!), we told the lady on reception that we had had nothing and she apologised.
We would not hesitate to stay at this lovely Hotel again, Thank you Hotel Waldstein.
