“affordable and good location”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

This hotel is ideally situated for sightseeing and relaxing. A short walk to the river and the Charles Bridge without being in all the touristy hubbub. It is a no frills kind of place, but comfortable beds with nice comforters and pillows, and they do not skimp on the heating in the rooms in cold weather. Good hot water and water pressure, although the shower fixtures are in need of replacement. The kitchenette is very handy for picking up some things at the market for quick in-room meals, but I did have to ask for a kettle to make tea. The reception scrounged around and found something I could use. The breakfasts have enough choice for everyone and are well serviced. The kitchen staff are well organized.
One big annoyance: if you need the Internet for business, go elsewhere. The hotel has free wifi, but the minute you get into your room it drops to maybe one bar and then cuts out constantly. I am writing this from the diningroom, and have had to send files and emails and skype from the stairwell. I find this quite perplexing considering the very strong signal I get in my room from the hotel next door. I have considered asking them for their password.
Also, there is smoking permitted in the lounge, and it wafts up the stairs which is pretty unpleasant when you leave your room.
The staff in general seem nice and helpful, although when I told them about the wireless problem they told me that there was nothing they could do until Monday.
Still, for the location, price, and comfortable room, a great deal and I recommend it!

Dear Valued Traveller,
thank you very much for posting your review about the recent experience you had in our Hotel Residence Mala Strana.
It delighted me to read that you appreciated the hotel location and comfort - it is the ideal place where to stay very close to the centre but in a quiet street.
I understand the wi fi signal was kind of unstable and I really apology for it, I have already addressed it to our IT department and an extra check on the connectivity will be handled soon. Thank you for your comments, we will do as much as we can to make improvements on it.
I look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distance future.
Best regards,

What a fantastic hotel, rooms were clean spacious and quiet! Our particular room had a kitchen area with table and chairs, small lounge area, twin bedroom and bathroom. Each room was spacious and it was nice not to be cramped into a bedroom and small ensuit for our stay. Breakfast was plain but good and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Hotel only 2 mins from smaller local bars and restaurants and about 15 to 20min stroll from old town square which meant it was peaceful on a night withough costing anything with taxis, buses or trams!!
Would definitely stay again in the future!!!

The greeting was friendly and the staff very helpful. All the information we needed was given to us without needing to ask in a polite and friendly manner. We felt instantly at ease. The hotel was clean and tidy and the rooms were very comfortable. Clean bedding and comfortable beds the main requirement and they were exactly that !! Bathrooms were excellent an cleaned every day and clean towels daily as well. Breakfasts were very good . There was a wide range of various foods to suit every appetite and as much as you could eat. Also friendly staff. Overall a great four night stay , wished it could have been longer. Thanks to all the staff !!

Hotel Residence Mala Strana was a great place to stay - within easy walk of the old town, and quite close to the tram which went to the castle area. The room was spacious and the bathroom was good. We had self-contained facilities but didn't use them much. The breakfast provided was quite generous and the staff were helpful.

Found this hotel to be really nice and really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and spacious and the area was really good. It was just a short walk away from lots of sights in Prague. There were bars and nice restaurants just round the corner or you can walk a bit further to experience true Prague nightlife.

The breakfast was also really nice although I did feel it could be served somewhere better than the basement! The food was still lovely though. I would highly recommend this hotel, it was excellent value for money.
