“Good base for Prague visits”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

A good hotel, great staff...we had a room at the back, overlooking the garden and it was quiet, perfectly comfortable, no problems at all. The staff were very helpful and professional, happy to help. Breakfast is very good, lots of interesting local and traditional European choices. The hotel is close to a metro station, tram stops, so easy enough to get to on public transport from the airport, and an easy walk to the museum end of Wenceslas Square. There are bars and restaurants close by. If you're going to Prague for a few days and want a good hotel at a reasonable price then this should be on your list of places worth considering.

Room Tip: Might be better getting a room at the back and higher up.

Hotels location is very easy to find, just 5 minutes far from I.P.Pavlova metro station(red line), when you reach hotel you will see newly renovated cosy building followed by warm welcome at reception. We stayed in room 351 and again had a feeling of cosy, romantic room)) what impressed me was that the staff was very helpful even with couple of our 'out of box' request. Breakfast was tasteful wide selection of international food and even homemade Czech pastries.
Overall very pleasant stay for a great value.

Room Tip: 351 from my experience-very cosy room)

We spent 5 nights in Alqush Downtown Hotel and I have to say everything was perfect – great staff, clean and cozy rooms, comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, and delicious breakfast with hot and cold food. There is also parking available right in front of the hotel and it’s monitored, but you need to make a reservation ahead of time. I recommend changing money in the hotel, they had much better rate than we’ve seen in about 4 places in the center where they stated 0% commission! You can also buy stamps for postcards and bus, tram and metro passes at the reception – very convenient hotel, everything is in one place and provided services are top! We also used luggage room which is locked and available for guests free of charge 24/7. We will do our best to come back!

Room Tip: We recommend the attic rooms, they have a special atmosphere and are very bright and completely quie...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your positive review, it made our day! We appreciate your compliments on our room design, cleanliness, breakfast and staff. You are right that it pays of changing money (we change EUR, USD, and GBP) in the hotel since our rates are based on the rates of the Czech National Bank which are published daily. We would be very glad to welcome you back soon and take care of you again. Please don’t hesitate to let us know once you consider visiting Prague again.

I booked at the Amigo Hotel, but it looks like it is the same as the Alqush. Room 351 and 355 are the best rooms probably, but it was really an enchanting stay at this hotel. Very kind people at the reception, and excellent breakfast table. Situated not far from the center, 10 minutes walk to the metro, and 15 minutes from the Wenceslas place. Book the parking in advance if you come with a car (15 euros/night), as you can't park in the area.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for choosing Alqush Downtown Hotel **** for your stay in Prague and for the time you sent writing your detailed review. It is true that we offer monitored parking place which costs 480 CZK (approximately 19 EUR) per night, which is considered a great deal in the central area where free parking for others than residents is impossible. Once you plan another trip to Prague, feel free to contact us directly to get our best available rates for regular guests.
We will be looking forward to your next visit!

They say it's down town but not exactly downtown. It's a good 15 minute walk from the centre. Besides that the hotel is enjoyable rooms are good. They have a great air con so sleeping in summer is possible. Most of the staff is extremely courteous except for one receptionist, she was a horror. The funny thing is that they charge you for the coffee packets in your room and a Euro.. The breakfast needs lots of work it's far below average.

It was a pleasure reading your review about your stay with us. We are very happy that you enjoyed your vacation and found the ladies at our reception helpful, they always do their best to make all the clients happy. It would be helpful if you stated the name of the receptionist that didn’t make you satisfied, feel free to let me know more details on diana-shayaova@alqush-hotel.cz We have just made some staff changes at the reception so I believe your next experience with us will be flawless.

Hotel was great and just what we needed. Rooms are a good size with a large bed and good facilities. Could not fault anything about the room except the noise of the aircon. It was quite loud the 1st night although we adjusted to it. Breakfast is good and has a large variety. Location is a little far away from the touristy area. It's a good 25-30 min walk to old town square. The hotel will arrange taxis and tour pickups for you though. The stand out thing about our stay was one of the staff members we dealt with. She was working the first 3 nights of our stay and was very helpful. She was always there to help and very friendly- she definitely made a difference to our stay (I think it was nad'i or nada). Thank you!

Dear Guest,
Thank you for choosing Alqush Downtown Hotel **** for your stay in Prague. It was our pleasure having you here as well as reading your detailed review of your stay with us. We highly appreciate your compliments on the size of our rooms, large variety of breakfast and of course also your comment about Naďa. You are right that we are not located right in the shopping area which starts on Wenceslas square, however, a walk from there lasts about 10 minute (since we are located in Legerova st.15) passing many historical buildings and guests usually find that also interesting being satisfied with having a food store and restaurants with local food around the hotel. I understand that it’s a matter of expectations and opinion though, for which I thank you very much. We will be happy to see you again!

The hotel is 10/15 minutes away from the metro station and Wenceslas Square. It is very clean and rooms are big enough and nice.
The staff was ok, but they placed a wrong reservation for a boat tour; one young and very kind woman fixed the issue and was exceptionally kind also in the remaining days of our stay (in particular the day we left).
Breakfast is nothing special, breakfast rooms do not have enough tables and space for walking around with plates.
AC is a bit loud and the currency exchange they propose is not convenient.
We booked a "limo" for picking us up at the airport for 26€ (tip excluded) via the hotel, but the guy showed up with a compact car. It's not a big deal, but why writing limo when it is not? Also, by taxi is about 20€.

Dear Guest,
First of all we would like to thank you for your comments, as the opinion of our guests is of the utmost importance to us and our main source to improve our facilities and service. Apart from the positive comments for which we thank you, we also appreciate your comment regarding lack of space in the breakfast room that we are constantly trying to improve. Last year we have added one more room with 24 extra seats and now that the weather got better, we also have the garden available for all guests, which is being more and more taken advantage of. We will be looking forward to your next visit, please don’t hesitate to contact s directly for special price for regular guests!
