“Fantastic value in good location”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Very helpful staff, in a very comfortable and welcoming hotel. Rooms are a good size with large bathrooms and very comfy beds (although you may think them hard to start with). The breakfast which was included in the price was very good offering lots of variety and quantity. You get free wi-fi and access to a PC if needed. It was at least a 15 minute walk to the old town but was close to all public transport services which take you all over the city. Be careful not to get this hotel confused with the 4* hotel down the road called Hotel Downtown.

Dear Guest,
It was a pleasure reading the review about your stay with us. We are very happy that you enjoyed your vacation in Prague and were more than satisfied with your choice of accommodation. Good point about the other Hotel Downtown in the city, however, I think you would notice you’re not in the right one as soon as you would enter :) We will be looking forward to your next visit!
Best Regards
Hotel Team

Prague could not be fun without a great place to stay, and I believe I have just found out one of them. Place was excellent, clean and quiet, with a very friendful staff. They just arranged everything necessary to our visit, although our friends couldn't make it to our trip. Their change reates are very satisfying, and airport shuttle would also be an option if you want to go for an early flight. Breakfast, as previously stated by many guests, is great too.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for providing other travelers with your experience in Alqush Downtown Hotel ****. We are glad that you also mentioned our convenient exchange rates as opposed to those available in the city center exchange points. We recommend all tourists changing money downtown to watch out as different rates apply to various amounts exchanged. If you want to make sure it is safe, exchange with us :) It was our pleasure taking care of you and we are looking forward to having that chance soon again.
Best Regards

For the price we paid ( £33/40 Euro/$48us per night ) we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was spacious and very well presented just like in the hotel photos. A nice large bathroom with a good strong shower.
Breakfast was really good, a wide selection of both hot and cold choices with slight variations each day.Served by friendly, efficient staff.

The location wasn't that central, but too close to make it worth using public transport, about 15 minutes walk to top of Wenceslas square ( I did it in 10, but with long legs and determination )

It did seem a bit much to charge for coffee and tea in the room which you make yourself, but for this quality at such a good price they have to make their money somewhere. Also a bit more choice on TV would have been nice, bot not essential. Only one channel in each of about 7 languages ( BBC World News in English ) except three in German.

Best way to get there from the airport was on the 119 bus getting off at the last stop ( Dejvicka )where there is a metro station change trains at Muzeum to the red line getting off at P L Pavlova station and walking about 5 minutes down Legerova.

The hotel is nice, clean, normal. Certainly not fabulous and not a 4 stars hotel. Some of the rooms are quite large and spatious - those ending with 2 and 4 (ex. 454, 452). Others are smaller and less spatious (ending with 1 and 5), but they have balconies. Breakfast ok. There are coffee and tea facilities in the room, but you pay 2 eur for one. If you bring your own tea, I suppose it is free, they have no charge for the cups yet. 30 minutes walking to the old city center.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms ending with 2 and 4, they are larger and nicer than others

Dear Monica,

Thank you for choosing Alqush Downtown Hotel **** for your stay in Prague. Yes, you are right that guests are free to bring their own tea which they can make in their room since all rooms are equipped with kettle. We do provide tea and coffee in the rooms as well and yes, they are not gratis unlike most of other extra services which we provide, such as high speed Wi-Fi connection, rent of ironing facilities or socket adapters, additional bathroom amenities, bathrobes, baby cots and others. We hope that next time you visit Prague, you will choose to stay in Alqush Downtown Hotel **** again so that we can make your experience much better than average.

Best Wishes

With the price I've paid, I must say that this hotel was beyond my expectation. I love the spacious room, lovely decoration, free wi-fi and nice people at the front desk. The breakfast is generous even though a bit boring since it's the same menu everyday. Located 1 metro stop from Wenceslas Square, but on a nice sunny day I would prefer to walk down to the old town.

My wife and I stayed at the Alqush Hotel in Prague during May 2012 and our accommodations were excellent.  It is a small, 24-room hotel, fully renovated with lovely appointments and all the amenities.  The rates are 55-58 Euro per night, approximately $75, including a full breakfast and all taxes and fees, free WiFi in the rooms and complimentary use of computers in the lobby if needed.  It is located just off the downtown area, not the busy and expensive tourist area, about 3 blocks from a major tram line as well as a metro subway station, a 20-minute tram ride to all major tourist attractions, 10-minutes from the National Theatre, or about a 20-minute walk from Wenceslas Square.  They have dependable drivers available at reasonable rates for train station and airport pick-up or for private tours.  Diana Shayaova, one of the managers, extended us every courtesy and addressed all our needs.  All of the front desk personnel speak English.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony facing the rear of the hotel.
