“Good location, but no curtains?”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

This was a great hotel for the location. It was very close to Old Town Square and St Charles Bridge. The breakfast was simple but good. The staff was very friendly and most spoke English very well. The room was spacious and had a TV and many windows. The problem was that the windows did not have curtains that closed completely. The windows had the semi-see through, very light, white curtains, but the heavier curtains only closed about 18 inches on both sides. The rooms are arranged around a courtyard, and you could clearly see into the other rooms all around you. Not only could you see your neighbors, but the sun shone through the windows at 7:00AM each morning. There isnt air conditioning, so the windows were open which means that we could see and hear everything our neighbors were doing. I dont know if it was just our room, but it was unnerving and we wouldn't stay again.

Room Tip: Get one with curtains, haha.

Perfect for a few days of sightseeing. Didn't try the breakfast but still excellent value. Situated minutes from both main squares and less than ten mInutes from the river. Will definitely stay here again if I ever come back.

The location of the hotel is 1 min walk by feet from the old town square. Cheap- 87€ twin room two nights. Fairly clean, poor decoration and no elevator. Just for the location good value for money!

I was very satisfied with the location of the hotel, within walking distance from all the important sites. Good breakfast, nice staff. All in all a very good choice.

When I was looking for a hotel I did a lot of research into the locations and I’m glad to say with help of other reviews I did book this hotel. The location couldn’t be better less than 2 minuets from the Old Town Square. The other areas were not too far away either, everything was within walking distant. I knew from the reviews that the hotel was basic, but it was everything that we needed. It was clean and tidy and the 24hrs receptionists were all very helpful. Breakfast was very nice too, there was the usual continental cold meats, cheese, fruit, and a few bazaar bits in bowls that us brits would normal think of as breakfast things like chillis and Jalpeno peppers. There was also cereals and hard boiled eggs, hot ham and/or pasta or rice. Overall I would recommend a short break to Prague again and again and again and defiantly recommend a stay at Hotel Melantrich.
Prague was a great place to visit the only thing that annoyed my husband and I was that restaurants all have different ways of charging service charges or tipping. Some have it written in the menu so you know what was what some left it up to you to decide. Be careful of the bread baskets too again some charge you extra and others don’t, even if you don’t eat it they will charge you. The first meal we had they charged for ketchup and oil that we didn’t even have on the table. Some bars charge a service charge and some don’t. Couldn’t get our heads round this one so you have to go with the flow. Just be prepared to a pay a little more than what you thought.

The hotel is clean, safe, and in the center of the old town; so it's easy to get to many tourist destinations. The staff is extremely nice and helpful, and they speak very good English. The breakfast provided is excellent with a good amount of options. My only downside about this hotel is that the bed is not very comfy.
