“Cheap and not chic”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I spend here 4 night with a couple of friends. The hotel is 15/20 min (walk + public service) from the city center. Aron is a good choice if you want to stay in hotel just to sleep and have breakfast saving money.

The room was big but not so clean in my opinion. The bath lacks of a window (not sure if in other rooms is different) and the towel hasn't been changed for 4 days.

Recommended if the criteria used to choose hotel is the minimum cost!

Upon arrival at first we got ignored by the reception who eventually decided to change her attitude - however the friendliness of staff from other reviews can definitely not be confirmed!

The hotel is situated in a calm area in Prag 3, Zizkov, which is slighlty east of the city center.
As the connection with public transport is excellent this is not a problem though. The bus lines pass on the main road which is a 2 min walk from the hotel and bring you right into the city center within minutes. There are two types of public transport tickets that can be purchased at the hotel reception, one with a validity of 30 minutes (24 c = +-1 €) the other one of 60 minutes (48 c). Both are valid for all public transport means. There are many shops and a supermarket very close to the hotel just as acceptable restaurants. Side note: ... we definitely cannot confirm the Pohadka. It looks traditional but its cuisine is an attempt to cook american style food. Not cheap and and only average at best ... plus it is in the basement and smoking is accepted!!!!!!

PLUS POINTS:
- wifi free (slow at times)
- quiet and calm area, nice buildings
- breakfast (except the orange water = juice?)
- price
- good connection to the city center
- mattress / sleeping quality

MINUS POINTS:
- shabby room
- no fridge
- no safe
- no airco
- not clean at all (remainders of popcorn and dust in closet)
- not vacuum cleaned once during our stay >5 days;
- bathroom: filthy (tiles in phase of detachment from wall, shower filthy), lots of silverfish insects, strong sewage noise kept us informed about the hotel toilet activities at all times...
- staff not really friendly
- TV no international , not usable for us at all
- needs renovation (stairway and elevator shabby)
- employees' room and balcony right under us (got woken up every morning at 7 by cigarette smoke, laughs and loud conversations on balcony)

Conclusion:
We would not come here again, however the hotel is definitely acceptable for a low budget vacation.

My daughter and I returned from a 2 week trip last week. This was the last stop on our tour of Hungary, Germany and Austria. After staying in wonderful places our luck ran out here. First the directions to the hotel on the web site are not very clear at all, it was difficult to find using their directions, the map function on my phone was much more helpful.
We got to the hotel in the late afternoon and were surprised to find a vacuum in the hallway with no cleaning person nearby. Our room was shabby and out of date, and smelled of smoke. The mattresses were lumpy and the carpet was in need of replacement. The bathroom was adequate, it did have some ant/ bugs on the floor, it also lacked a hair dryer. We were surprised when we came back from our evening adventures that the vacuum was still on the floor. Our first night was uneventful, on Saturday night when we returned after a day of sightseeing we were met with a Frat Party atmosphere, someone poured a beer out of a window on to the street below, the people in the room next to ours were blasting music at full volume. There was general shouting and rowdy behavior in the stairwells most of the evening. I did complain to the desk around 10pm and they were able to get our neighbors to settle down. This hotel was a major disappointment, it was dirty, old and not that close to the center of town, even with public transportation, it wasn’t cheap to stay here, and the neighborhood was run down. I would avoid this hotel and stay closer to town and pay a bit more for a quiet cleaner more modern place.

Very small and cosy hotel, where there is everything necessary and most importantly, very clean. 15-20 minutes from the old Town and the Centre. If you want to have a look around, instead of having to sit in the hotel; I highly recommend you do.

Stayed in this hotel in May 2011 for 3 nights and found it well worth the money.The staff were friendly with the owner very helpful with directions and ways to visit prague centre.This hotel is in the Zizkov district and is a 15 min bus ride into the centre.The bus stop is around the corner from the hotel and tickets for the bus are to be purchased before you get on a bus, which can be from the chinese mini mart on the corner.This shop also sells fruit and wine which are very reasonable.The hotel room was basic and clean and it is a very quiet area of town.The only negative was the smell of cigarette smoke in the corridors.The breakfast was nice with lots of choice ham,cheese,boiled eggs,frankfurter sausages, fruit,bread cereals etc The waitresses were of the older type and very surly looking but just got on with their jobs.Used Prague taxis via the net to get from the airport to the hotel and for the return journey and they were excellent (especially when i tipped him 200 ke - £7).A budget hotel well worth a visit.

We stayed there 3 nights. The room was very clean, but rather small. The furniture was all new. There was hot water and heating in the room 24/7. You can't smoke in the room, even though there was an ashtray on the table.
It's close to the bus station 207, which will take you to the center of the town. There are many restaurants&pubs near, which are better priced than the ones in the center.
The breakfast is not varied, same thing each day. They don't have a restaurant, just a breakfast room, which can become overcrowded.
The lady at the front desk (the skinny one, with black hair) was really rude when we came in the morning, even though we had early check in included, as if she was disturbed by our arrival.
Overall, a nice experience, good value for money and I'd recommend this hotel if you want to stay there no more than 3-4 days.

I booked this hotel as the base for a 3 night/2 day weekend in Prague based purely on the price, and I got what I paid for. It's a short bus and tube ride from the centre or a tram ride from the old town, but the price reflects this. Having said that the public transport in Prague is amazing so it didn't really matter...

A very basic hotel, our small, shabby room had peeling paint but the linen and towels were clean. The TV didn't work and the radiator only worked on high, but we only wanted somewhere to rest our heads after a day of sightseeing so it didn't matter. The hotel was completely full (even In February) so there was extremely limited hot water in the morning, but loads at night so that's when we showered. No hairdryer or tea making facilities, truly a basic package for a basic price.

Breakfast was fine if you like bread, cheese, meat and boiled eggs, which lots of people did, but the small dining room was so crowded and the meal uninviting so we chose to make the most of the cafe society in Prague and eat out instead as everywhere is reasonably priced and everyone speaks great English.

Overall this is the perfect hotel for less than £70 (3 nights for 2 people, with breakfast) but don't expect 5* service!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 5th floor (top) are next to the boiler so are warm.
