Friendly and helpful staff, large deluxe room in the heart of Old Town. Breakfast was okay. Staff was very helpful and spoke very good English - reserving a taxi for us to the airport in the middle of the night, packed breakfast for us and gave us detailed instructions what to do. The room was very spacious (deluxe room) for two people. A very short walk to the Astronomical Clock in Old Town and tons of restaurants around. Very close to the bridges.

Close to everything a small 3 stars hotel with Perfect location, good breakfast and rooms and bath are good. They do not have elevator. But there is only 2 floors. It is not easy in Prague t find hotels for small budgets and this one is perfect.

The hotel rooms are quite dated but the bathrooms are very modern, brilliant shower and constant hot water. It's very close to lots of attractions and public transport. There were only a few niggles; the bed was 2 singles pushed together, which made a very wide bed with an obvious divide in the middle. We may as well have been in single beds. Secondly, I was aware before booking that there was not a lift, but..there were over 60+ stairs to go up to get to our room in the 2nd floor. If you have any mobility issues ( I have sore hips) then I would not reccomend here. Especially after a day of lots of walking and sightseeing! Overall, this is an amazing location, staff were friendly, rooms were clean, shower was really good.

Very happy of this choice. The hotel is really nice and it is elegant,with beautiful red carpets. The double room was quite big. Even if the furniture are not the most modern, I really appreciated the large and super comfortable bed. Cleaning was ok and there is television and hair drier in the room. Shower also was good. A word for the breakfast, which has a large variety of choices: meat, cheese, salads, cereals, tea, coffee etc. I would suggest to add the possibility to take an espresso, cappuccino or hot chocolate, as we Italians really like to drink those for breakfast,and to add some chocolate or Nutella to fill the croissants. Staff at reception was friendly and helpful. The best thing of this hotel is probably the super central position: it is located 2 mins from the old Town Square, same distance from venceslao Square, and 5 mins from the Charles Bridge. You are basically in the middle of everything, and the price was very convenient. I will definetaly come back in this hotel next time!

I stayed here for 3 nights in September on a photography trip to Prague. The best thing this hotel has going for it is the location. You can literally walk out the door and wind up in Old Town square in just a few minutes. The Charles Bridge is a little trickier: It's easiest to first reach the section where the Astronomical Clock is and then take Karlova all the way to the bridge. The actual location of the hotel is a little tricky as well as it's just behind a pedestrian area barrier. The nearby Havelský Market also consumes a neighboring street on weekends making rides to the hotel difficult. 2 of my Uber drivers actually had difficulty finding the exact location and one dropped me off a good block away. There's a small square at the end of the Market called Uhelný trh which is a better meeting spot morning or night. On weekends the area can get a little rowdy as there's a night club next door. Prague is a popular place for bachelor parties and partying so people definitely come to have a good time. The staff at this hotel were very friendly and spoke good English. Both ladies who assisted me were pleasant. You're given a bulky wooden keychain that you drop off with them when you head out. You then show them an identification card when you return that has your room number on it. Pretty simple process and keeps a big keychain out of your purse or pockets. My room was basic and clean. The bed was on the soft side which was great. Bathroom was also very tidy with nice hot water. You're able to open the windows to let in some fresh air if you choose. I couldn't tell if there was AC in my room or not because it was cool in the evening but very comfortable nonetheless. Breakfast was below average in my opinion. I've had better offerings at similar hotels in Prague so this was a bit of a disappointment. The juices were poor quality and the coffee is squirted out of a plastic thermos. The biggest problem, however, are the small flies that come in from the open windows. I understand the need for ventilation but the mere sight of the flies doesn't help make the food look any more appetizing. I would suggest replacing the juices with fresh store bought juices and adding hard boiled eggs. This is the only area keeping the hotel from a 5 rating in my opinion. While the breakfast wasn't my favorite the hotel itself was clean, comfortable, and in a good location. I booked well ahead of time and felt good about a reasonable rate. I would classify Hotel Melantrich somewhere between Mid-range and budget. Because of this and the exceptional service from the staff I would consider staying here again on my next trip to Prague.

A fairly basic hotel with a dreary entrance, and my single room had no air conditioning (fan only) and a view of a covered courtyard, but it was clean and functional and the breakfast was passable. However the location in the heart of Prague was second to none, and thus I felt it good value for money and as someone on a limited budget, I would certainly stay there again. The staff were pleasant and helpful and I had no problem leaving my bag in reception during the day while I had a look round Prague, though I was not booked in for a second night.

Staff nice and helpful but if you value a good nights sleep give this place a miss as there was NO Air conditioning and this is such a basic expectation these days so unfortunately a sweat shop experience I didn’t sleep at all in a double bed that is two slabs of unyielding mattresses pushed together to form a double bed. So being shattered for the following days events leaves you edgy and unable to take in the many good things Prague has to offer I needed two pillows but they actually run out. Being so hot I was in and out of the tiny shower non stop to keep myself cool. I wrote this report at 3 pm as impossible to sleep. The tiny Shower blocked upon first use but maintenance is good and this was quickly fixed. But the en suite is probably the smallest I have ever encountered, it’s basically a cupboard with sanitary fittings crammed inside so fittings overlap each other. You open the door and the room is full of the door so you have to shuffle around it to use the WC and WHB (we had room 35 second floor overlooking the kitchen extract ductwork). I have stayed in some budget hotels in the past and I am fussy about a good sleep so couldn't recommend a return here. Apparently none of the rooms in the older part of the hotel have AC and Prague is HOT so you do need it at night to sleep.

Situated just a street away from the famous Prague clock so ideal for visiting various attractions. Staff extremely helpful. Room reasonably spacious and clean. However they did not come to clean room till after 4pm when we were taking our afternoon nap! Breakfast was simple but ok.

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. I emailed before arriving requesting a double room, and Marta replied and confirmed promptly. She had allocated a room that was huge. Marta and Eva are very friendly and always willing to help. The hotel doesn't have a lift, like most hotels in the centre, but that didn't bother us, however those with difficulty with walking will struggle. The location of this hotel is so central, we were able to get round all the historical sites by walking. It is quite a quirky hotel and has a very old charm. It doesn't have air con, but in winter time we didn't need it. The only reason we couldn't give it a 5 star were because the pillows were to firm, breakfast, although plenty, was very basic. On a one busy day, there were also not enough tables. The walls between the bathrooms with adjoining rooms are a bit thin, so be warned. The bathroom in our room was also VERY small, but clean. The hotel is also above a night club, so those staying on the lower floors will hear some music until the early hours. Despite a slight negative, we would definitely stay here again.

Situated in old town prague, this hotel is in a walking distance from all the historic must see attractions in, we explored everything in Prague by foot. So friendly staff with spacious and clean rooms and a nice renovated bathroom with hot water. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel not to forget that they offer water and coffee for free to all their guests. Highly recommend this hotel with affordable prices.
