“Feel like Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Everything aspect of the Hotel U Prince is amazing. The rooms make you feel like you have stepped back in time but have all updated features. The food is exceptional, especially the breakfasts! The Black Angel Bar has to be experienced, especially the bartenders with skills that make watching them create a drink is an experience in its self. Last but not least ALL of the staff go above and beyond to make sure your stay is a great one. I have stayed at many hotels in Prague and throughout Europe this is by far the best! Thank you my Friends at the U Prince, I will be back.

I visited Prague a few years ago and stayed in the New Town but had dinner on the roof top restaurant at U Prince and thought it would be a great place to come back to with my wife so we went for a weekend for our wedding anniversary. After booking a room at the U Prince I contacted the hotel to ask if we could have a room overlooking the Old Square. Not only did they arrange that, but also put us in the Depandance Apartment which has two huge bedrooms, living room, modern bathroom and kitchen, and overlooks the Old Town Square and Astronomical Clock. We also had a bottle of bubbly chilled and waiting for us on arrival. (Thank you U Prince for earning me many brownie points!!!) The apartment is in a building next door to the hotel and is accessed via an entrance that seems to be shared with other apartments which, I presume, are private. The access stairway is a bit drab and the apartment is on the 3rd floor with no lift, so beware there is a climb of three flights of stairs to get to it. It does get a bit noisy at night when overlooking the Old Town Square but the view more than makes up for it. All of the staff we encountered were very pleasant and helpful. The location of U Prince is perfect for getting to all of the sights. We had a meal in the rooftop restaurant on our anniversary. Unfortunately our visit coincided with a wet and cold snap in Prague but the cover and outdoor heaters kept us comfortable. The restaurant is a bid pricier than most, but the spectacular views are worth it. I noticed one or two contributors complained about being charged for break they didn't want. This is pretty common in Prague restaurants; you just have to send it back when they put it on the table and you won't get charged. After dinner we rounded off the night in the Black Angel Cocktail Bar in the basement. The bar lived up to expectations with most of the staff very pleasant (one was a bit miserable and told us no photos allowed) and made a good show of mixing the cocktails which were delicious.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlook the Old Town Square and if you are going for a special occasion mention it!

Dear Mr. Druidstone

Thank you for taking the time to review the Hotel U Prince and the apartments by Hotel U Prince.

An anniversary is always something very special, and I am thrilled to read that your recent stay with us to celebrate your anniversary was so well enjoyed. From start to finish, it sounds like your stay was great, and I am really pleased to hear it!

I am also glad that you were able to experience again The Terrace Restaurant and newly The Black Angel’s Bar during your stay. Hopefully, next time when you experience The Terrace Restaurant, the weather would be the opposite, warm and sunny!

We do hope that you will stay at Hotel U Prince in the near future!

Yours Sincerely,

Michaela Bauerova

The location is excellent. The rooms are comfortable and many have a view of the astronomical clock and the square. The breakfasts are top quality. The front desk provides useful concierge service. The tie breaker comparing this to any other hotel in Prague is the rooftop terrace restaurant with its spectacular view. What more could you want?

Room Tip: The double bedrooms are quite comfortable. The junior suites are very unusual and should not be sel...

Currently in Prague and have had two wonderful meals on the Roof Terrace of the Hotel U Prince.
The views are fantastic. We had Adam looking after us on our first night he did a splendid job , very friendly without being in your face. Can recommend the Tuna Tartare , the Salmon and the Pork medallions. Wine is reasonably priced. Afterwards we went downstairs to the Black Angel Bar what a find , the staff very attentive and the drinks amazing I had a Basil Swizzle wow !!

As near as damn a five, I would have given a four out of five as the hotel itself is "very good" but having the Black Angel cellar bar sways me to mark up. It's without doubt one of the best bars as far as ambiance is concerned that I've had the pleasure of sitting in.
You'll struggle to get better for location and we stayed in room 34 which has two small window with views down to the square in front of the clock.
All the staff were attentive and pleasant.

Great hotel, with mamzing bar. bldg from 13th century, good pricing, laundry services and right across from e clock tower. Ask for a central facing room, if you dont want to hear the revelry late into the night. Internet spotty like all of Europe but functional. cool design, every room unique. Excellent service!

Great service, the rooms are big and spacious. We were greatly surprised by how friendly the staff were. The food is really good and the breakfast is delicious.

The view from the terrace at night is amazing and you are nearly in front of The Clock! Couldn't recommend it enough.
