Bus from airport to Botel Albatros

Hi there,

Does anyone know if there is a bus that goes from the airport to near the Botel Albatros, please? And how regularly they go? Are they included in the general Prague transport system, for which you can buy the 72 hour passes, and can you purchase these at the airport?

I've heard the taxis are really expensive from the airport and want to give the public transport system a go!

Many thanks!

Natalie

In this case, Cedaz may be a good option or you can take the bus 100 to Zlicin and the metro to Namesti Republiky (both end up at the same place). Then walk in the direction of the City Hotel or Kotva supermarket and keep walking until you get to the river (about 250 metres) then look over to the right and you'll see the Botel Albatross. The road you have walked down is Revolucni. At the end of the road when the buildings on the right end, walk around to the right and then through the little park/playground and you'll see a pedestrian bridge that goes over to the Albatross.

If you catch the scheduled Cedaz bus to Namesti Republiky for 90 crowns, you walk up Revolucni street (the way the bus is facing when it drops you) to the end. Just before you come to the bridge over the river, turn right, so that you follow the road to the right which goes down to the river and runs under the bridge (there is a small park facing you, and as you follow the road round to the left).

You will then be facing the river and you need to cross the busy Nabrezi Ludvika Svobody street (there is a pelican crossing at the traffic lights). The Botel Albatross is the moored on the quay at the other side of the street. The walk from the Cedaz bus stop should take about 15 minutes

An alternative is to catch the scheduled bus 119 to Dejvicka (the end stop) and then catch the number 8 tram (which should have the direction Vysocanska on it - direction Podbaba is the wrong way). For this, you need to walk towards the big roundabout when you get off the 119 bus (don't go down into the metro like everybody else) and take the first road right. You will then see a tram station stop about 30 metres into this road). the number 8 tram will wind its way to a major junction, where it will turn left, go along for 1 kilometre, past the Sparta football ground and down the hill, will turn right at the bottom of the hill, go along another street and turn right, when it is on the river embankment (river will be to your left). At a traffic light, it turns left to go across the bridge over the river (you should see the Botel Albatross on your left as you go over the river) and you get off on the first tram stop in Revolucni street once you have crossed the river. The tram may well take 15 - 20 minutes to reach here. The tram stop is then 5 minutes walk from the Botel, following the last part of the instructions abbove.

A 72 hour transport pass is valid for both bus from the airport and tram, but not for the Cedaz minibus. Be careful to validate your pass when you board the 119 bus at the airport.
