Super helpful friendly staff. Rooms peaceful, very clean and spacious . Great breakfast and well located.We normally stay in the busy areas but decided to stay a little out this time and we are glad we did. Our 5th visit to Prague and we would definitely stay here again . It’s possible to jump on a tram so you don’t have to walk up the hill.

What a beautiful place ! Comfortable bed and pillows to start with. Perfect bathroom with correct water temperature and water pressure. Room has AC and heating. The upper floor rooms have a split level so the bed is upstairs. The hotel is located only 2 minutes walk from the tram, that is very convenient for getting around especially back up the hill once you have been down town. The monastery and its grounds are so nice they really did a good job converting this into a boutique hotel. We drove ourselves found it a little bit hard to find but every taxi driver probably knows it even if they are blindfolded. From the square where google maps takes you, you have to walk up the stairs between two shops. Breakfast is good and hotel staff is friendly.

We were lucky to get the room with the view of Prague. It was so beautiful. The room was clean and cozy. Breakfast was rich and tasty, staff was helpful and kind. We spent here two wonderful nights. We arrived in the middle of the night and nonstop service navigated us where and how to get the keys. It wasn't anything difficult. They have a box right behind the door with the code.

We booked this hotel for our wedding anniversary, through Expedia Canada 1.5 months prior stay date. We have also paid for it at the time of booking. When we arrived at the hotel and called them to allow us to park in the court yard, we were told that our reservation was cancelled apparently by us. We couldn't have done that because our reservation was through Expedia. Then, they said another tour operator that deals with Exepedia cancelled it. Funny enough, on Expedia's site our reservation showed as in progress. We called them in Canada, spent an hour on the phone and all our roaming minutes, and they had no clue what happened to our reservation. Since, we arrived at the hotel, I managed to talk to 2 people by phone, who gave us contradicting info. Finally, it seems the hotel has no water for a month, because it is located in an old monastery building. However, when you check the hotel site they don't mention anything about it. It looks like the hotel is open. So, we believe they are not trustful, and they tried to cheat on us! Please don't book this hotel!!!

This was my wife and my first trip to Prague. We wanted to stay somewhere special and peaceful with a good location to sightsee from. We couldn't have agreed on a better Hotel. The staff was amazing and friendly, the breakfast buffet was excellent and many options. Beautiful location on top of the hill with a great view of the city and just a 5-7 minute walk to Prague Castle. We definitely recommend this hotel.

Situation Situated up a hill in a lovely area next to the Strahov monastery and library, the hotel is part of the monastery building complex and away from the busy part of the city. 10 mins walk downhill to the Palace. Bit of a trek back up the hill (especially from Charles Bridge which takes about 25 mins but it is possible to get tram 22 or 23 from mid-town which drops off nearby necessitating only about 15 steps up). Hotel Clean, quiet, entrance hall looks fairly traditional but the rooms and breakfast room is modern. Steps down to reception and upto the rooms. Staff are lovely and very helpful. You can leave your bags there free of charge on checkout until you leave. Taxi to/from airport can be arranged with the hotel and costs about £28 payable to the driver. There is a small garden with city views. Very good breakfast - bacon, eggs, cereals, meats, bread, cheeses, croissants, fresh fruit, pastries, orange presse, yoghurts, freshly-ground coffee. Coffee is available all day should you wish it. Room We stayed in Room 23 which had a view of the garden and overlooked the city. The rooms are clean and modern if slightly 70s in decor but it would've been nice if they'd kept some of the original features. Firm but comfortable bed (2 singles pushed together), powerful shower with shower gel dispenser, complimentary mini toiletries (no shower cap). Hairdryer on the wall. Free safe. Mini bar. Coffee/tea-making facilities. Restaurants A few very nearby and also about 15 mins down the hill. We liked the Red Lion about 15 mins downhill. Don't recommend St Norbert's which is literally round the corner from the hotel - it was devoid of charm having the ambience of a works Canteen, grumpy and rushed staff and the food left a lot to be desired! Recommendations Changing of the Guard at Prague Palace at midday. Entry into the grounds of the Palace, along with entry into the front part of St Vitus’s Cathedral with its beautiful stained glass windows is free. You pay to go further into the cathedral but really you'll probably be satisfied with just the free part. The queue for security/bag check is very long at around midday but much shorter the earlier or later you go. There are a couple of different entrances with hardly any queues at the rear. Medieval astronomical clock, Old Town Square - with an hourly clockwork display. Avoid early evening at Christmas - the crush of people was actually quite frightening! Lovely Christmas market (there's quite a few scattered throughout Prague but the one in the Old Town Square is the best - beautifully illuminated and our Lady of Tyn Church created a fairytale backdrop. Incredibly busy though). Charles Bridge - statuary, street performers. Historic. Iconic. Escape the crowds and take a train to Kutna Hora - bought tickets at the station for about £10 return each. 1 hour 20 mins pleasant journey and fairly regular train times. Get off at Kutna Hora Hln stop then go through the underpass to the other side of Kutna Hora station and take the small train to the end of the line. This will take you nearer to the town. All included in the ticket. Lovely peaceful small town with cobbled streets and little shops/cafes. Enjoy a mulled wine while gazing at St Barbara's Cathedral with its flying buttresses and the far-reaching views. There's a walkway with statues leading to it. We loved this part of our trip and highly recommend. Petrin Tower - about a 20 min walk from hotel after which we were too lazy to climb the steps to the top and took the lift. Incredible view of the city. Lots of interesting info on the tower and funicular. Catch the funicular down, not up as the queue to come up is much larger. Cost of funicular ticket is included if you buy a tram day pass.

I booked a twin room for one night to stay with my 14 yr old daughter. I advised the hotel that we would be turning up after 7pm and was told that there was a remotely managed access system to enable us to gain entry to the hotel. Note, there is no reception and no service at this hotel after 7pm!!!! On arrival, the remote access facility did not work i.e. nobody in the responsible sister hotel answered. Were it not for the chance exit of another guest we would not have been able to gain entry. On the evening of our arrival I attempted contact via the remote system 4 times and tried to phone the sister hotel directly six times, but there was never a response. I also emailed the hotel twice but much to my surprise I still have not received a reply containing a written apology. This was all the more problematic as we had not been given the twin room that was booked but instead a tight and most unsuitable, semi converted attic 'space' on the top floor of the hotel, nothing like the photos on the hotel website. Because the hotel is unstaffed after 7pm it wasn't possible to rectify this. I think the hotel needs to review this policy. At least the hotel admitted this was their mistake the following morning via its helpful receptionist, but by then it was too late. This was most disappointing especially as the hotel is wonderfully located overlooking Prague and I think it might have been great to stay in were it not for the serious problems with access and the allocated room. Key learning points, if you are going to stay here do not risk turning up after 7pm and make sure you confirm your room choice directly with the hotel before arrival.

Response from AVEHotels, Manažer at Hotel Monastery
Responded Aug 19, 2019
Dear Sir, thank you for choosing our hotel and for your feedback, we appreciate it very much. Please let me apologize for the issues, we did forget to prepare you the requested bed setup and we do investigate the intercom problem, since it has never happened before. However let me also mention that there are pictures of your room on your travel agent´s website and that we clearly state on the agent´s website that the reception is staffed on spot only form 7 to 7. Once again, I am sorry that you weren´t able to enjoy your vacation to your expectations and I do admit that was is also our fault. We are currently working on improving the check-in and communication system. I wish you a great day, E.Aljanabi, QC Manager.
