“Old world charm”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

I recently stayed for 2 nights with my husband and baby daughter in a junior suite. We had a wonderful time and found the staff very helpful especially the bellboys. The rooms are very clean and full of character. We had dinner up on the terrace I would highly recommend this as the views of the old town are breathtaking. Eventhough the weather was v cold the terrace is heated and they provide you with blankets. The only thing to keep in mind is this hotel is in the centre of the old town square which is great for sightseeing but can be noisy at night. On our second night a nearby hostel had a disco we complained to reception and they moved us straight away. They also offered us a discount for the second night because of the noise. I would highly recommend a stay in the u prince it's full of character and perfect for a stay to experience the old world charm of Prague

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room as the rooms near the terrace or facing the street will be noisy at night time.

We had lovely cocktails on the scenic terrace overlooking the town square, a bit expensive for what we got, but it was our last night in Prague
We were always recommended to book a taxi from our restaurant or hotel so on 19th March the hotel porter phoned for 2 taxis for 6 of us.
This cost us MORE THAN DOUBLE our usual fare.
When we complained to the driver, he said the hotel had agreed a price with us which was totally untrue.
So watch out and agree a price first.

We are just back from a fantastic third trip to Prague made all the better by our 2nd stay at the U Prince. This trip we also travelled with my Dad and his partner, their first trip to Prague.

I firstly want to say a huge thank you to Michal Stribrsky and his team who were brilliant from (early) arrival, bag drop and check in, to when we collected our bags at 5pm on our last day. In particular it was lovely to hear a cheery good morning from reception as we walked down the stairs to breakfast in the morning, the friendly breakfast waiter who remembered our drinks, including that my dad liked two teabags in his pot and the hearty good nights as we left the rooftop terrace after a night cap.

For this trip we booked two double rooms and I did email the hotel to ask a few questions and also request rooms with external windows and a view of the square if possible, all emails were responded to and I felt confident we would be happy with the hotel.

On checking in we were really delighted with the allocated rooms, we were on the 3rd floor in 33 and 34 which both overlook the square and the astronomical clock, both rooms had a separate entrance area (brilliant to shut out any corridor noise and a bit of smoke from seating area on landing) to leave coats and a door off to the marble bathrooms, both had a full bath and powerful shower over and the complimentary toiletries include everything you could need for a 3 night stay, particularly useful if travelling hand luggage only!

The bedroom had an opulent feel with heavy wood and window dressings, comfortable large king bed, bedside tables (check out the complimentary ear plugs in case of noise from the square) flat screen TV, mini bar, aircon, wardrobe (with mini safe) and chest of draws. There was also space for a leather wing chair, small table and leather stool. I think room 34 was marginally larger with windows to 2 aspects but 33 was still very lovely!

The hotel in general has lots of places to eat/drink/sit, we did not eat here other than the breakfast which was great as there are so many places nearby, but we made use of the roof terrace and the outdoor seating on the square, and we also went down to the piano bar which was really nice with live piano music. In particular we enjoyed the Mojito Xls and the wine.

So finally, we had a great stay, we had no complaints or niggles what so ever, but this could be down to research ensuring the hotel would suit us and having the right expectations of this small luxury hotel and also of the area it is in.

We would definitely stay at the U Prince again. My father in particular was very impressed with the hotel and Prague in general and has already said he would recommend it to friends and family!

Thank you U Prince!

The U prince is smack Bang in the cebntre of the Old City opposite the famous Clock.
It has old world charm, while still haveing all the modern conveniences. Dozens of restaurants right outside your door, a 2 minute walk from the Charleas bridge.No better choice.

had a short break here middle of feb with my wifes whos birthday we celebrated. (ps please ignore the last negative, he is totally misguided and likes the sound of his computor keyboard). The whole atmosphere was fantastic, roof top terrace, although snowing when we got up there but they haave covered areas for you to sit under with heated lamps everywhere. The staff are very friendly, however there was a blond behind the reception who was cold to your needs, so I treated her the same way she treated me. The room was excellent,room 25, spacious and warm. Bathroom was superb. We went into the black angels bar in the cellar for cocktails every night, these guys know how to make cocktails with all the theatre. One cocktail called a blue blazer was ordered, so all the bar lights went off and this cocktail was ignited and the barman did his magic.
The only thing that stopped me giving it 5 stars was the food; however it was good but the service slightly let it down. On the last day we had lunch and a bottle of wine so they charged us 60czk for two covers and then 150czk for service charge which adds up, but I refused to let that spoil my overall experience. Would we go back?? you bet we would. We only scratched the surface of Prague and will return very soon and to stay at this superb hotel.
There are a thousand and one eateries out there in Prague so go try them.

Room Tip: room 25 was very good check your bill for "add ons" but dont let this spoil your time her...
