“Czech it out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Overall, a decent place to spend a couple of nights. The room was sparse but had the essentials, there was a consistent breakfast with enough variety and friendly staff. My only complaint is amount of noise in the hotel in the evening and early morning. Not only were there several groups of loud and obnoxious guests which the staff did not make an effort to control (yelling in the lobby, knocking on doors at 5 am) but there was also construction on the house next door that began at 6am and continued all day. Not much sleep to be had.

Good value hotel with spacious, very clean rooms, excellent breakfast and in a quiet area just off the tram line.It is not in the centre of Prague but is easily accessible. Bar service in the evening, though you will need to sort out your own meal. This gave us an opportunity to try out a number of places in the centre of Prague. Breakfasts were buffet type and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

A quite lovely hotel, that’s a bit out of the way, but has excellent tram links. Breakfast was very good and felt hygienic, choices are limited and are same everyday, but nothing to complain about. Rooms are large and felt nice with good bathrooms with showers that felt like power showers.

Don’t mind any reviews about being a bit out of town, this is a good thing as its very peaceful and there is no noise from any businesses or bars next door.

Watch out for drunks at the tram stop though, they are annoying.

Room Tip: Watch out for the glass panel on the stairs, they can be sharp on the edges.

Beautiful Hotel located quite a distance from the center of Prague. Great to stay at if you are travelling with a vehicle. Only disappointment was there was no restaurant in-house or nearby, the receptionist can order you takeaway though.
Only two stars for the restaurant because it is not available for Dinner although our Breakfast was delicious.

Hotel Popelka is not in the heart of Prague but it´s easily accesible - only couple of tram stops (the stop for the city is not more than 5 minutes far). It´s situated in very quiet area, near a park or a wood, no mainroads or passing trams behind your window, so you really will get perfect sleep!
But on the other hand who wish to dine in the hotel or somwhere near will not be happy with this - nothing around. But who would do that? Almost everybody comes to Prague for siteseeing and spends most of the time in the centre where you have so many choices!
The hotel was spotlessly clean with very spacious rooms (or at least our was large), modern and clean bathroom, comfortable beds. The staff nice and helpful. The buffet breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The only little minus was that we didn´t have any wi-fi signal in our room (maybe because our room was at the end of long corridor...) - so if you really need internet during your stay check it before you "move in" the room.
I only can´t write anything about the price/service ratio because I bought a coupon in a special promotion...
We spend very nice time there.

From reading the previous reviews before we arrived, I was expecting something akin to travelodge, however we were pleasantly surprised. The room was large, the bed was comfortable and the shower was nice. We prefer not to be hassled when staying in hotels so we left the Do Not Disturb sign on the door for our whole stay and we were left alone. The staff were friendly enough and were helpful whenever we needed them.

One or two people on here are complaining about the breakfast and the bar. The breakfast seemed fine, a rather large buffet with everything from eggs, bacon, sausages, cereals, cakes, yoghurt. I don't know how you can expect anything for for the price. We never used the bar so I can't comment on that.

The location is absolutely fine, we were able to travel to any of the main attractions within 20 minutes. You can catch one of several trams that depart from a stop five minutes from the hotel towards the city centre. Only two stops away is Andel which is served by a Metro station and lots of restaurants and bars.

Nice hotel, 30 rooms: one triple room, 1 quadruple room and 26 double rooms. Private parking is available near the hotel. 5 min for nearest metro station (Andel), 15 min from the historical center of Prague. Good choice if you came by car or airplane: only 9 km from airport.
Very nice and quite area. Good brand new rooms. Small private garden at the hotel territory. Couple of good restaurants nearby.
