“Tram 22 nearby”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

Stayed at three Novotel's one after the other, Berlin, Prague & Vienna this was the best of them. The only grip I really have is the name. The name implies it is on or near Wenceslas Square. It is about 1 km away which does not make it near enough for me to be called Wenceslas Square.

The hotel how ever is located very close to the IP Pavlova subway and tram stops. The hotel front desk sells 24 hour subway and tram tickets. The 22 tram will take you to within a 100 metres of the Charles Bridge and a few stops later will also drop you at the main entrance to the Prague Castle. Using public transport has never been easier.

Wifi Internet was free, Breakfasts were adequate and priced at 309.60 Czech crowns.

Hotel also had a nice indoor swimming pool which we used a couple of times when taking a break from sightseeing.

The Hotel has a limo service for picking up guests from the train station and airport which we used to get back to the railway station. Price 450 Czech Crowns. There appeared to be a racket (most probably being run by organised crime) at the main railway station where taxi drivers would only charge fixed fees (even though they have meters in the taxi) for various destinations. The Novotel was classed as inner city and priced at 650 Czech Crowns (USD 32.00). This to take you no more than 2 kilometres!!!!!! We walked.

Staff were very helpful and always courteous.

Really nice hotel! Not far from the center.
Good breakfast! Free wifi! Parking!
So all you want and all you need you can get there!
The only one disturbing thing is permanent alarm sounds of police or emergency cars. But it easy handled if you will close your window)))

Spent 2 night here with my daughter and we had a lovely time. Pillows could have been better they were a very poor quality but everything else was good. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant and the service at the hotel could not have been better. All the staff were very friendly.

Stayed a week end at the Novotel. Hotel is in a quiet area next to a PwC office and an Ibis. Well located near Metro Station and Tram stops, but hotel is a good ten minutes walk away from Wenceslas Square. Which is fine in Spring and Summer but not necessarily in Winter...

There is also a 24/7 wine shop around the corner so you can get all the water/drinks you need. Plus Mc Donalds and KFC are just up teh road if you don't fancy going all the way to Wenceslas Squre (and back).

Room is very Novotel-like, more like a motorway hotel than a luxury hotel. Room is rather clean but small, bathroom and toilet are ok. Staff is nothing special: don't expect too much from them. For example you take your luggage to your room.

It's really a no frill, trouble free hotel which is great for solo travellers or couples but I reckon the rooms would be stuffy for families. Internet in room worked very well although Tv was a bit iffy.

Breakfast was good. Nothing exciting but all I needed was there.

All in all, it's a good no frills hotel. Nothing will take your breath away so if the price is right, I would definitely recommend. But you may find better deals in Prague with more personalised services and proper five start treatment.

Room Tip: Go for the top floors...and get the rooms that are not near the lifts

very well situated, 2 mn walk from tram and underground access. you have the tram line 22 there which goes straight to the castle and Mala Strana.
The line and others go also in the old town in Strare Mesto.
Hotel very quiet, and modern with all all facilities including free swimming pool, fitness center and 2 saunas opened till 11 pm. The buffet breakfast is large and available till 1030 in the morning.
You can have it outside in summer.
Kind staff, all speaking english.
Good value.
