If you book this hotel because of free parking (as we did) or because of having nice romantic evenings - dont do it. 'Free' Parking ment to park our car on the street, where the locals are parking. That would be still fine (eventhough I would expect to have my car on hotels pparking lot), but ther is not much... More

The hotel was booked through booking.com. We stayed from 8th April to 10th April 2016. Friendly people and courteous staff welcomed us nd our rooms were already ready. No need to wait. Coffee was very tasty. Rooms are well maintained and everything was very near. Centrally located in Czech and the staff helped us about the currency, where to board... More

The room was clean, the Lobby was Basic but nice. At the Front desk they have been really friendly. Due to the infrastructure everything was reachable. I would return any time. 4 points simply because it was Basic.

The building is very nice inside and the staff is helpful. That's all about the good things. The room is not pretty at all but it wouldn't be a problem. The bed was super uncomfortable. I woke up with very bad back ache every day. The bed frame was kept together with cellar tape and had an old and an... More

The hotel is fairly close to the center, about 15 min. The hotel workers are very friendly and helpful. The facilities are reasonable. The room was clean and comfortable. There was a very slow and beautiful elevator with a glass window facing outwards. The water pressure and temperature of the water in the shower were usually not stable. Internet generally... More

This is a hostel in disguise. They give you 1 piece of soap for the whole week. They do not change linen and the smelly, discoloured towels are so worn out that you can almost look through them. The house, in itself is quite charming, but the rooms are less wide than their ceilings are high. Breakfast is a sad... More

We choose Hotel Otokar based on a friends suggestion. It was one of the cheapest hotel I have seen in Prague. Rooms are okay, breakfast was good considering the cheap price. If you look at the map it looks to be far from the city however with 5 or 10 minutes on the tram and you are already in the... More

The hotel not really in center, but it's quite easy to get from there to center. Stuff speaks English good. But the hotel looks a little out of times.. For that price we actually expected something little better.. The smoking area in lobby, makes the whole old building smell like old bad times. No conditioning in room, in summer it's... More

This hotel is a converted old-world style house and the building retains its charm while at the same time providing modern amenities. The hotel was very clean and although the facilities were quite basic, we loved it here. The staff was very friendly and was very prompt in providing us with guides, maps and directions.
