“Great location and facility”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Perfect location on the square with the added bonus of a view of the astronomical clock along with the vibe of the square. The rooftop terrace restaurant was delightful and even better than expected. Prices were also reasonable. The included breakfast was delicious with a great selection of food.

Room Tip: Top floor with a view of the square!!!!

On a short visit this week we managed twice to sample the delights of the U Prince facilities, the rooftop terrace and the brilliant Black Angel Bar. The view from the rooftop terrace is everything you could hope for, simply stunning and the section with the glass covered roof mean that it is perfect whatever the weather. Service is attentive and skilful and the food looked marvellous.
The Black Angel Bar was voted in the top 10 best hotel bars in the world and rightly so, the bar tenders are skilled and seeing them create drinks is an absolute joy.

Room Tip: Restaurant bookings are advised.

It sounds like your entire experience in both of our facilities was fantastic, and I am very happy that you have had a lovely time.

We hope to have the opportunity and welcome you back in the not too distant future.

Yours Sincerely,

The staff are friendly and helpful and go the extra mile to help if there are any problems. The location is perfect- right in the heart of Prague Old Town Square. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast is superb. Food in the restaurants is excellent, and the views are fantastic from the roof top terrace and they also have tables in the square, right opposite the famous clock. The Black Angel's bar is very atmospheric and the cocktails anywhere in the hotel are simply the best!
If you fancy a top notch city break I would recommend the U prince in Prague.

We spent a couple of Days with friends in Prague just to enjoy each others company, Czech beer, good food & wine. The hotel is located on the The Old Square in the center of the old city with walking distance to absolutely everything, lots and lots of shops, bars, restaurant of all categories from charming authentic Beerhouses to Michelin Stars and even Absint Cafés for those who dare! We stayed in a Junior Suite absolutely good value for Money and we could even see the Astronomic Clock from our window

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,
