“A good room does NOT make a good hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

The rooms in this hotel are large, clean and comfortable - that is where the positives end.

The grey and bleak design of the hotel's exterior are a more telling indication of the quality. It looks like some communist architect had a very bad day when he came up with this place. The public areas of the interior are not much better. Vast spaces of "nothingness" make it feel more like an institution than a hotel.

It is in the soulless caverns of foyers that you have to connect to the free wifi - because the signal does not reach your room. It is hard to skype in a hotel lobby when your voice echoes in the vastness and all your can hear are the disembodied noises of tour guests getting drunk in the world's least intimate bar.

Even though I tried hard to smile and engage the staff, they seem unhappy to be here. All grey like the building's exterior. Maybe they get sick of the big bus loads of ageing nomads who seem the prime occupants here.

However, by far the worst thing about this hotel is the location. It is perched high up on a hill, well away from the historic heart of Prague. The staff suggested I took public transport into town. I tried this. Walked down the steep hill to the tram stop. I didn't have a ticket (because there was no way to buy one) but caught a tram to the subway; hopped onto the subway which finally got me to Prague 30 minutes later. This was tolerable in day light - but trying to return in the lonely, pitch black of this neglected suburb, I felt unsure, unsafe and frightened.
Not a trip to do alone.

I was so uncomfortable that the next day I drove from one of the Hotel Praha's few saving graces - its free car park. However, I still had to pay for parking in Prague for the day - something I was trying to avoid when I chose the Hotel Praha.

Prague itself is an incredible city. Like most great historic cities, it is best in the early morning or the evening, when the day trippers make their way back home. To really appreciate Prague - stay in the city heart, don't be tempted by the flash rooms and low prices of the Hotel Praha.

Why, oh why, did we choose this Hotel??? A question we keep asking ourselves. The only reason that we can come up with, is that it had very good parking. When we arrived we thought that we were on a "winner". Reception staff were very friendly and professional. Our room was one of the largest that we had seen and the view from the balcony was pretty good. It went downhill from there. There were minor issues of no kettle, pool closed and lack of wifi in room. These are easily addressed. However, they seriously need to change the chef/cook in their Restaurant. Food and service were abysmal. However, the issue that we had the most problem with, was the very, very poor response and woeful attitude that we recieved from the Management, following Account Issues. All I can say is-----Do Not Stay Here!!!!
And if for some reason you do, Do Not Give Credit Card Details as a deposit.
The Hotel was a disaster, but Prague is beautiful. Staying here hasn't discouraged us from visiting Prague again!!!

Room Tip: Don't Go!!!!

Nice view from the terrace only. The bathroom was good - new renovated.
Service is not like in 5 star hotel - no toilet paper on wc in lobby, no kettle for hot water in the room (no coffee, no tea), no iron, bed linen - like in touristic hostel. Interiors of Hotel lobby and common area is very dull and depressing because hotel management is not switching on lights and most of the areas remain in dark / low light.........Breakfast poor and basic

Well, this hotel claims it has 5 stars but it does not.
I would not go back mostly because of location and some other minor issues.

Wifi only in lobby with very weak signal, location remote - 15+ minutes to nearest tram - then you have to change to metro. Air conditioning was not working properly. Pool was reserved from 3PM to 5 PM and 7PM to 9PM.... There was some noise in our room - like a pipe or something.. quite annoying. Breakfast was ok, but nothing special
Bartenders were great, rooms are spacious, bathrooms are ok, services overall ok except the internet connection..

We spent 4 nights at the hotel from Monday to Friday. Although the hotel was built in 1981, was renovated a few years ago. We stayed on the second floor in the spacious room, hallway, living room, bedroom, bathroom and separate toilet. From the living room and bedroom, we had access to the balcony. The view from the balcony was amazing. We saw the whole Prague. The hotel is located in a very quiet area, while a little further from downtown, but we had available minibus that drove us to Prague Castle or the subway station - Dejvická back and forth. This service we are very appreciated. The room was cozy, spacious, clean, towels were changed several times. The price included only breakfast buffet, choice of food was enough for us. Staff was helpful, courteous. At the reception, they can buy tickets for public transport. Hotel has no currency exchange.

This hotel was builded in 80s so it`s looks old, but rooms are excellent, very clean and spacious, there is TV set, free Internet, hotel safe, and mini bar which was rather expensive. the hotel personel was very nice and helpfull. Hotel breakfast was little bit simpe but tasty, one can choose eggs with bacon, or healthy food, cereals with youghurt. Hotels swimming pool was little but clean, during our stay there was some problem with AC and also lifts where inoperable, glad that we have our room on 1st floor :) This hotel si not in the center but it is 10 min from nearest tram stop, so little stroll is required, maybe it is more suitable for people with a car. I must say that this is not 4 star hotel and for hotel like this a restaurant with better meal and drink offer is required not just a club with 4 expensive snack.
