“Great location, Cannot fault”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

My wife and I stayed for three nights. We cannot fault the Hotel or the helpful staff plus the facilities offered for the price we paid. .If you could not find anything on offer for the breakfast then you must be a very fussy eater. This was our first visit to Prague and we found the Waldstein delightful..Exchanging money was fine in reception the rate offered was only marginally lower than anywhere else eg hotel 26czk to the euro , best seen in Prague 27.3 czk . As for location ...!!! well 10 mins gets you to most of the best known tourist destinations. Charles Bridge etc. People who make ridiculous statements like " the double bed was made out of two single beds which made it difficult to sleep"???? has no bearing on the hotel at all. Get a life .

It's is not really a hotel but more of an apartment thing, the rooms are scattered in a block. Our room was huge and bu the double bed was made out of two single beds which made it difficult to sleep. The breakfast buffet is not good enough, very limited choices. However, the staff are friendly and the location is great, very close to everything.

We stayed for four nights with another couple and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this old hotel with quaint old furniture.The hotel is located within ten minutes of Charles Bridge and Old Town and the Castle area is a pleasant 30 minute uphill walk.The staff were very helpful and there seemed to be a different person on Reception at each visit but they all spoke good English and directed us to excellent restaurants with local cuisine at remarkably cheap prices for three courses with complimentary sparkling wine.Breakfast quality was good with a wide range of cereals, breads, meats, cheeses with tea, coffee and fruit juices and although situated in the cellar the room had a good atmosphere and the staff were quick to clear the tables.My only complaint is that our room (14) had an annoying dripping noise that sounded like a radiator in the room above was dripping onto their floor(our ceiling).A member of the Reception Staff came to our room and agreed that there was an a permanent drip like noise and she went to the room above but was unable to stop the noise and so getting to sleep was not easy and as the hotel was full we were unable to be transferred to a different room-I do hope for the benefit of future guest that this problem is identified and fixed.

Room Tip: Avoid room 14

Just had a great stay at the Waldstein. Forget your bland one-size-fits-all international hotel. At the Waldstein,you don't have to look out the window to see which country you are in. It oozed essence of Czech Republic. We had a Deluxe room which was massive, I would have called it a suite. OK, there were things you could pick up on. It is a little faded around the edges. If things like the ring holding the bath plug being distorted or the tile grout a different colour where they have done some repairs puts you off, then the Waldstein is not for you, but you will miss out on a great experience. Staff were lovely and very helpful and could not fault breakfast.

The position is fantastic.A very quiet square between the Castle and Charles Bridge, but only about 10 minute walk to the Old Town. Superb restaurants and bars (at a fraction of the price of Old Town) within 5 minute walk.

Just returned from Prague, 3 nights at the Waldstein, perfect location for getting around. Have visited the city 4 times, this time as a tourist. Very central in Lesser Town, 10 mins walk across Charles Bridge to Old Town square. Easy to grab a 22 tram around the corner to get up to Castle. Many great pubs about enjoyed the ones literally around the corner, 2 mins walk, pickled cheese, potato pancakes, pork knuckle, steak, sausage, and wonderful Czech beer. There is also nothing quite like a Hot Wine when its cold! Stayed 30th Dec to 2nd Jan, new years eve was an experience, fireworks start as its get dark, we were on a dinner boat 10 mins before midnight the fireworks are going well! At the 12 all hell breaks loose with hand held, thrown, private party and a few firework boats at all the same time!! City display was 1st Jan at 6pm very sensible and orderly. Hotel serves at great location to a wonderful city, breakfast fits your needs, cold meat, cereals, hot stuff, toast, yoghurt,etc. Warm and inviting hotel, the walls are about 3 feet thick, old world styling antique furniture, mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities. A few creaky pipes at night but nothing but praise for a super hotel. Booked through Easy Jet as part of a package, looked up their website first. Ideal for the city, which is going to be out walking, shopping, food, drink, etc. 24 hour reception, good English, stored our cases on last day as we had an evening flight, Room was massive with hall way, bathroom and big double bed room. no real view to speak of but that was not important. Breakfast room is converted cellar with vaulted ceiling, very characteristic of location. As it was xmas, little trees about the place and lights and ivy on all windows....all very bohemian and just what we wanted for our 30th wedding anniversary.

A party of 10 of us stayed here to visit the Christmas Markets. We were really pleased with the rooms, comfort, breakfasts and the welcoming and helpful staff. We lived in Prague during the Velvet Revolution and visit regularly and can honestly say that in terms of location and the things already mentioned this hotel is excellent - our Czech friend said it was 'typical Czech' - so if that's what you are looking for we could really recommend it. We ate at U Snellu just around the corner who were very happy to accommodate our large party, good food and drinks. We could recommend the Evening Jazz Boat River trip with meal - good food, great band and can all be booked through the hotel. The Christmas Market stalls are located all over the city, with plenty of hot wine and sausages as well. All in all we had a wonderful time and would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you are not pleased with your room ask to move - the staff are very helpful.
