“Average, but great location for the price.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2008

Just got back from spending four nights in the Hotel City Centre from 07/07/08 and to some it up in one word would be average. I read the bad reviews on here before i booked so i was expecting the worst but for the money it looked like a good location so I was willing to take the risk and i was pleasantly suprised, although I would not class it as a 3* Hotel.

I will agree with what most people on here have said, it is very basic but the location makes up for it. It really was so easy to get around from here - no more that a 5 minute walk to Wencelas Square.

The hotel staff were as polite as an average czech person and spoke english quite well. You can borrow a hairdryer (you have to put a 100k deposit down which you get back when you return it) but you do have to pay 50k to use the in-room safe. There is a fridge selling cans of beer and pop in reception (although not the cheapest) and newspapers as well.

The room itself was spotlessly clean and easily the biggest hotel room i have stayed in for a while. In our room we had a double bed, a writing desk with chairs, a massive armchair, two sidetables, another table for general use and a big wardrobe and it still felt very spacious. There was also a small colour TV on the wall, the only channel we could find in english was CNN News but its something to watch. The carpet was enough to give you a headache! The bathroom was also spotless as well, although the toilet paper (like i found everywhere else in Prague) seems to be recycled and it really wasn't very nice. There is a shower gel attached to the shower wall and soap by the sink.

We were staying on the 5th floor and although the lift does only go to the 4th floor you literally only have to climb about 8 steps to get to the 5th, although there was a glass lift away from the main reception which went to the 5th floor. The room was very quiet and you coudn't hear anything from outside but the curtains were about two inches short so they didn't block out all of the light. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, we had two singles pushed together to make a double and I have to say the pillow was very uncomfortable. It wasn't the best 4 nights sleep I have had as it was a warm room and I didn't want to open my window for all the moths flying about outside. You do get nice little suprises though like sweets on your pillow. Remember to pack your plug adaptor as the plug sockets are different from england.

We personally didn't try the breakfast just simply because neither of us are really "morning people" and I never want anything to eat at that time.

The hotel "pub/casino" was a small basement pub next door that had a few slot machines pushed together and was so hot I had to walk straight back out. There was a small garden just off from the main reception that you could sit in.

Overall I would say for the money and the location it is a decent little hotel and whilst I have no plan to return to Prague again (been there, done that, try something different next time) I would consider it if I did go back. If like us you don't go on holiday for a luxury place to stay, more just a place to sleep and shower then it's fine. Expect the worst and you will be pleasantly suprised.

.....a place to bed down! Clean Spacious and friendly Staff. A no frills Hotel in a fantastic Location. 5 mins from either wenceslas square or old town square with a little further for Charles Bridge. Recomend a pizza from Pizza Nuova restaurant just across the road friendly staff and a perfect atmosphere. Whilst a few good beers to be had @ the Tropicana Bar associated with the hotel again no frills but cheap and Friendly staff. we personally would recommend arranging transfers from the airport online with www.prague-airport-transfers.co.uk very professional, quick and worth the money. Greeted by a friendly driver, on return driver came into reception to collect.

Would reccomend this hotel for stag, hens or youngsters not for a romantic break or the older element. Was a noisey hotel but then we had a load of schools staying @ the same time from italy & germany can only be expected then.

Great Location just 3-4 mins form Wenceslas Square, and the road outside leads all the way to PRG airport too.

Don't expect too much and you will NOT be disappointed!

The airfare with Easyjet was just £40 each return from London, excellent value, but booked with a Hotel at www.easyjetholidays.com it was just £91 per person for the flights and 3 nights in this Hotel, amazing!!!!!

The location really is awesome, there are a 2 shopping centers with loads of shops right opposite and adjacent to the Hotel, and the Italian restaurant across the road (on the 1st floor) called Ambiente is the best Italian I've had! excellent value for money and a great atmosphere (go there about 8-9pm) GO THERE! awesome menu and drinks, with wine etc was about £25 each for 3 courses!

The Hotel room was quite small due to the twin beds, but fine as it was just somewhere to sleep as we were out and about all day and most nights, the bathroom has a great power shower but no baths, and the beds are actually v.comfy! TV worked, but agree breakfast isn't amazing (they love sausages with everything!) but the omelettes and toast, cereal etc were fine, and there was hot and cold drinks too. Not much in the way of facilites, but again, a great base!!

Room was clean and had wardrobes etc, so really nothing to complain about and I would stay here again without hesitation, even though I sometimes go 4/5 star, it wouldnt justify the price as Prague has so much to offer you would be stupid to waste money on a 5 star hotel when the city has soo much to see (we were there for 3 nights and still didn't do everything!)

Also, the Hilton hotel is round the corner and Gordon Ramsey has just opened a restaurant there,called The Maze, all I can say is GO GO GO!!! Amazing value for money and what an end to the Holiday! (read my seperate review on that!)

thing to do .......

Get the train from most main stations to Kutna Hora to see the bone church, creepy but a must do that many toursist miss, and only about 45 mins on the train and easy to find!!

Go to Prague castle but dont ay to go in every building as there;s too many, just walk around it for free! Great photo ops!

Go to the torture museum and sex museum both near charles bridge, good fun and cheap!

do a river cruise, about £8 each, great views and a nice experience.

go to both restaurants I mentioned above, I'm not a major food buff, but WOW!.

Avoid any "locals" who ask you where you got your jeans, is that an armani coat etc, as they will put their hands on it as if taking a look while one tries to get your wallet. To be fair, this happened only once in a quiet side-street behind wenceslas square, and they didn't get mine! There are police EVERYWHERE in the city centre, and even after that, never felt unsafe and had no more trouble!

Go to Frinds bar, on Bartelometsky, SW of wenceslas square, if you sing karaoke you get loads of free drinks, it cheap, adn great atmospher of mixed tourists/czechs, and gay/straight.

Have fun and go asap. For a cheap breakway, go to this Hotel, would stay again with no hesitation!

What a let down this was.8 of us booked a weekend in this hotel.I know the lift only went to the fourth floor which was ok but the rooms we were given which were on the fifth floor were tiny.The breakfast wasn't up to much especially the coffee I don't know where they got this from.Next we come to the "Tropical Bar" all this is a tiny basement bar with a straw roof over it. As for the casino all this is is a row of about 10 slot machines at the back wall of the pub.If all you want is a bed it would be ok but you would probably get better in a hostel for less money.

we spent 5 nights in this hotel, last january, with my husband and a couple of friends. The good things about the hotel are: the cleanliness of the rooms, the bathroom in very good conditions (although small), the central position of the hotel, the breakfast (but coffe and jam weren't too good), the italian restaurant just opposite the hotel (I'm italian and, believe me, you eat like in Italy, there! Cheap and very good!).
The things I did not like are: the heathing and the hot water, which were out of order one evening (but the hotel staff repaired it in less then two hours); the beds, which were very unconfortable; the staff, who was a little bit unfriendly.
However, for the price we paid (we bought this hotel in a travel agency together with the flight), I think this is not a bad hotel to stay.

It looks tatty from the outside but very surprise how clean and tidy the rooms were. The breakfasts were not very good if you prefer english, but ok for toast and cereals. Heard lots of rumours of pick-pockets we were ok. plenty of police on the streets, always felt safe day or night.
Would definatley reccomend (--) waiting for us at the airport and came to the hotel ten minutes early to take us back, cost £29.00 for 4 great value!!
Would go back to prague and stay in the same hotel, most things in 10 minute walking distance from the hotel...

Stayed here for four nights. Room was clean, bit of a hassle getting up to our room on the sixth floor since the lift only goes uo to the fourth. Breakfast was inedible, coffee out of a military type drum dispenser and powdered milk, scrambled eggs and hot dogs. a nice breakfast venue just down the road at the municipal building. Do n't ask the staff to organise your taxi back to the airport, we did and were overcharged 730 k and had a car missing wing mirror and airbag. However although the room was clean and the location central I could not really call it a hotel more of a block of rooms. One good point , the staff did send us back some property we had left behind. Apparently we were lucky to be given a room away from the enormous building site next door but the room did smell of concrete dust ! If you go to the italien over the road do insist on reading the menu and get the wine list, otherwise they will make your choices for you ! How this place gets three stars is beyond me, I would definitely try to find another hotel for my next visit, and there are lots of them. Sadly, although the architecture is dazzling, we got thoroughly sick of people trying to pickpocket us and of the tacky standards in many of the bars, restaurants, and shops. A stag group we met had the misfortune to have the groom mugged on his first night. I really was shocked that considering the crime , including asians trying to offer to change money on the streets, there were no police to be seen. This place needs to raise its standards!
