We stayed at the Hotel Dante Alighieri Prague only this week and feel compelled on our return to warn others NOT to stay and if possible to cancel A.S.A.P.
On our arrival we were greated by foul builders (spitting!) and a skip outside the hotel. We were even more unimpressed on entering the hotel to find that this continued to be the case inside (brickdust everywhere!!)
The staff and manager were friendly and apologised for the disruption but assured us that the building work was only downstairs so we continued to our room.
WELL!!!! The room was tatty, tiny and nothing whatsoever like the info we had (I would find it impossible to find an area of this hotel that matched up to its website pictures apart from the bathroom which was excellant and clean). the double duvet was two scruffy singles put together and there were numerous holes in the bottom sheet.
We stayed at this hotel for only one COLD!!! night (the room was freezing, it was -9 outside!) and left.
This was a long awaited romantic break for us ruined and we continued at great expense to enjoy the rest of our stay in fantastic Prague at the Hotel U Zlateho strmu (The Golden Tree), which was more expensive but worth the money. (We have never stayed at a more comfortable hotel EVER! and you can see "charles Bridge" from the hotel window) I would recommend this Hotel to anyone, its central location saves money on transport alone!)
We are still awaiting our PROMISED refund from the Hotel Dante Alighieri(apparently they didnt have the correct security codes for the card swipe machine to conduct a refund when we returned).
We wont hold our breaths!!!!!!!!!!!!
