“Nice luxury option but expensive and nondescript”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I stayed at this hotel with my wife for two evenings. It is one of the most expensive hotels in Prague. As I was at another hotel in prague for three days prior to this one, I feel as though I got a very good feel for the city and cannot speak highly enough about the loaction of the four seasons, which is very close to the charles bridge, making nearly all of the sites walkable.

Having been to several four seasons, this one did not dissapoint in terms of service or upscale luxury. However, there was nothing unique about this hotel and it could have really been placed anywhere (the four seasons in budapest, for instance, was truely spectcular and cost about the same). Also, while it is on the river, there is no where in the hotel that offers wide views of the spectacular cityscape accross the river, unless you uograde to a river view room for a hefty 160 euros a night. I was also irritated to be gouged on some of the drink prices, such as ice tea refills at nearly $10 each ( that was a surprise I found at check out).

Again, predictable comfort and luxury from this brand, but nothing special considering the wonderfull quaint city in which it resides (hence the 3 star rating). For the price, i will suffer a bit on location and stay at the st augustines next time.

Just got back from the Four Seasons Prague. Although the rooms are just a box, the location and the service couldn't have been better.
The location is situated within blocks of the old square and the Charles Bridge, across from the castle on the river. The service was impeccable especially the concierge desk and housekeeping department.
I had a problem with my room during my long stay-12 night - and the front desk jumped on it and moved me into an upgraded room with a view. When I came back to the hotel the next night, the housekeeping staff left me a treat-brownies - as a way to say "Sorry". They didn't have to do this but I found it a nice touch.
I was on a business trip and to have this level of service helped me relax at the end of a long day. The beds were really comfortable as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Prague as it is truly a "Four Seasons" experience.

Room Tip: If you want a really quiet room, ask for a room over the patio restaurant

Four Seasons is known as a top chain of hotels and naturally people expect more from this hotel than any other. The Four Seasons hotel in Prague is great but it misses some details to make it perfect. For me a big disappointment was a very soft bed in combination with very high pillows, which for me means not such a good night sleep. Although a detail, I was also surprised by the grey plastic shower head. I really would not expect this in such a hotel. Thirdly the toilet paper - a single thin layer... c'mon. The last thing was a disappointing view from the window. If you don't get a room in the "right" side of the hotel you can expect the view on trams, a pub and scaffolding.

On a positive note, I really loved the crystal lamp, overall decor and the size of my room. The bath tub with a special bath salt and a bath tea were amazing too. And finally, the front desk staff was very nice and helpful.

In sum, at this level, details make difference and I am afraid that the Four Season Hotel in Prague still has some details to work on.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the Vltava river.

It's a Four Seasons, so I can spare you a lot of the fawning details.

What's unique here is a really terrific location. Views of the bridge from your room, and only steps away.

An especially good and innovative dining room (Prague is a great city to eat in!)

I do not care for the marriage of a modern building onto an historic one .... makes for a rather disappointing building overall.

Our stay at the Four Seasons Prague was excellent- and all you would expect of a Four Seasons hotel. Room was large, comfortable and well furnished. Service was excellent and the restaurant very good. The location was very convenient to all sight-seeing and shopping. Concierge recommendations were all on target.

Room Tip: Choose a river view room- a bit more money but picture-perfect views of the castle.

This well appointed hotel and quietly understated hotel is located in a perfect spot for views and walking. The staff is outstanding and makes you feel quite welcome. My rather high expectations for Four Seasons were well met. Everything was well done from the maid service to the concierge. The Cottocrudo restaurant and bar was very good with excellent service and the views sitting outside were lovely.

Room Tip: The River view rooms are worth the extra charge.

Excellent location near Charles Bridge, very comfortable beds, tremendous view and impeccable service. This is probably the best location if you want easy walking access to the old town square and shopping. The restaurant/bar on site is excellent however don't miss out on the excellent restaurants nearby.
