Best Western Amedia Praha
Ranked #401 of 647 Hotels in Prague
Reviewed December 28, 2011

this is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in .
the rooms are tiny, no air con just heat and all sealed windows, so its so stuffy it is unbearable.
no tea and coffee making facilities let alone fridge. beds are like blancmanges, bedding is tat. carpets threadbare and filthy.no main light in the room and only one chair to sit on. water in bathroom comes out cold and in a dribble. shall i go on.
all in all just a waste of money. we booked for 24 nights and there is nowhere to even unpack suitcases just 4 hangers in an alcove.
we booked another hotel for 9 nites but are now back here. we have decided to cut trip short and booked next flight home.
ps we wanted to stay for christmas and new year but will miss new year
prague is a lovely place but sad to say holiday is ruined. will read all reviews before booking hotel again

Room Tip: go elsewhere. anywhere even outer mongolia

I don't know why somebody book 3 star hotel for lowest price in Prague suburb and then expect at least 4 star hotel?!

It is long story why I booked this hotel, but due to horrible reviews I lived 2 months in fear how will my family stay there.Now, Ia ma glad I did it. I tried other solutions, like selling the arrangament, but al last I showed up last month with my family at the evening at this hotel, expecting noone there . Hall was full of german middle age loughing tourists and a little bit confused young receptionist give us card for the room.
Room was surprisingly fresh, nice, clean and with a highway view - and a second after I realised tha there is no sound at all.
And for me very important - any sign of smell of cigarettes ( there is fire alarm) or anything else
so in short
hygiene - you have t o put the card on the door and cleaning lady will clean the room - how? depends of her, some only made our bed

bathroom -only two towels, clean

breakfast - cornflakes, cakes, appleas, cheease, salami, bread, juice, tea, coffee, butter,etc - you will not enjoy it , but you won't be hungry

air condition - it is noisiy when working, but we set it on 20 degrees and went out, turn off when in the room, and it was ok

location - it near higway, for direction consult via michelin, bus station is 40m from hotel, one station to metro station, and only 20 m form bus station is enteranace to chodov shopping center - shops work till21, supermarket and restaurants till 22. it is also suitalke if you come with car - you just choose which highway you want. To city center it is about 20 minutes drive.

parking - there is underground parking, but in front of the hotele there are 3 free parking lots. nearby -20 m- is business building with offices and their parking is available in the night. this building also has self service restaurant with menu abot 130 czk, which is suitable if you come in the day and too hungry for other restaurants

This hotel obviously gets money from tourist groups which change every second day , they are older and we never had problems with noise at night.
This hotel is totaly ok for staying - save money for prague, you will need it because it is more expensive than in the past.
Hotel looks like hotel for just sleepover - only 2 towels for 2 persons, lazy maids, small glass for juice in the breakfast, cheap furniture ( bed was ok), etc, but it is new building and clean hotel on good location

We were booked here as part of our 15 day tour of Europe. Of the 7 hotels we stayed in this was the worst. The rooms were tiny, nearly as small as the single towel provided! One measly towel, thread bare, the size of a hand towel... they advertise access to the pool and spa next door, but it was always closed. the food was barely passable. The thermostat in the room was just for show...and window could not be opened. the place smelled a a recent bug bombing and smoke.

Too many inconveniences:
1. Non-friendly personell
2. Non-opening windows
3. No hairdryer
4. Poor breakfast. Especially early breakfast - two sandwiches and they ask a pledge of five Euro the day before (never seen such a strange thing)

Hi
If you have not booked already DO NOT BOOK HERE !!!

sleeping in a hire car would be more clean and safer.

If you have booked please take note of a few facts you will need.

It is 6km from the center, there is a metro around 1km from the hotel.

If you have a car the there is a plus, it is 30m to Petrol service station in front of the hotel, the problems then kick in :( the petrol Station is a motorway service station for one of the main motor ways in Czech. Trucks use the petrol Services to sleep, so they are turning up and leaveing all times of the day and night. The motoway is around 75 to 100m from the front of the hotel.
There is duble glazeing in the room that keeps out most of the noise, and they kindly made all windows with no opernings. Does get bit stuffy, im not jokeing just one bit of glass with no handles or opernings at all in all rooms.

Then there is the carpets, I have no idea when it was built but at guess 10+ years ago, all carpets and fittings have not changed at all, I have stayed in China and all over the world. NEVER have I seen such dirty disgusting carpets, there torn, dirty staned, they have bleach white marks all over them. Then there is the smell that comes from them, it is crazy why the do not change them and give the place a bit of a face lift.

The sheets and towels are the same, all must date from the day it was built, and all well past the use by date.

Then there are the beds, no springs or stuff like that to worry about just cheap chip board bed, with dirty ragged thin mattress on top. We at least it matches the dirty ragged sheets :)
We had a bed break in half while we was there, when we had look under it had been boged together loads of times, there was glue bits of wood and screws going every where.

I think you get the idea of the rooms, I have photos if any one wants see them. email me
standhen@hotmail.com

then is the car parking we was informed when booking there is free car parking, this is true if you leave it in the petrol station, or there is Baumax like a B&Q you can leave there and just hope you don't get a ticket, or a clamp. The hotel does have parking under ground, but that is 10euros a day.

breakfast is room temperature milk, no joke"with cereal. they do offer fruit when we was there it was apples cut in quarters. I never seen it before in any hotel, it is like for small children. They had in there advert hot buffet again not true just some very cheap ham, old bread rolls and slice of bread if your lucky.
We was there on a Sunday morning and it looked like they had taken a load of old bread rolls and wiped water over them then warmed them in the oven to soften them up.
Bread rolls only cost a few p, why serve this crap up to customers.

If you have all ready booked.

don't let it get you down, there are loads of other super hotels cheaper in the center of town. Just take a load of photos and complain, then go stay some where better, when your home put in a claim with Visa and show them the photos.
It is what we are doing and looks like we should get our money back, and we just made the best we could of the weekend :

good luck

Hotel a bit far out about 7 stops on metro - nearest stop Chodov (pronounced codof) and then about a 5-10 min walk past the shopping centre to hotel. Rooms clean but spartan ie no tea and coffee making facilities but have found that you don't generally get these in european hotels anyway. Staff professional but not overly friendly! Bed comfortable and clean towels and shower gel, shampoo in bathroom. Breakfast was ok but I am not a huge fan of continental breakfast as don't eat bread but array of cold meats and cheeses, muesli, yogurts, orange slices, coffees, tea and juices. Also enjoyed the bar area to sit and enjoy a night cap. Taxi to airport takes approx 30-45 mins depending on what time of day you go as quite a busy route so allow extra time. Cost 890 czk. Overall thoroughly enjoyed prague a wonderful city.

Just returned back from a 4 night stay in this hotel and whilst it wasnt the best place ive ever stayed, it was cheap so we couldnt really complain too much.

We paid £100 for a double room for 4 nights so considerably cheaper than anything else we would have got in the UK.

On arriving at the hotel, we checked in pretty quickly which was really good considering that there was a large party in front of us. We were allocated a room on the 7th floor and this was smallish but clean. We had no problem with the room although the air conditioning didnt appear to work (although i have found this problem the same in all different types of hotels all over the world, even the Crowne Plaza in Brussells so its not just the Euro Hotel) and we found the room to be rather warm and it had no opening window. The bathroom was small but the shower worked well.

The hotel is situated a 10-15 min walk from the metro station (CHODOV) which is located next to the Centrum Chodov Shopping centre. The main problem is that you have to cross a busy dual carriageway to get onto the correct side of the road although there is a zebra crossing so no climbing over the central reservation!! There is a bus stop on the main road but unless you are getting the night bus back (no. 505 or 509 - details on the notice board at the hotel) then theres no point in getting the bus.

We found reception to be helpful when we asked for information, they gave us all of the information regarding local transport and breakfast times etc.

Breakfast was good - lots of cereals, cakes, toast, bread, cheeses and cold meats. Not bad at all and set us up well for the day, esp as they serve til 10am. Dinner is not catered for in this hotel although they do do a range of pizzas which are ok.

In summery, the hotel was ok, nothing spectacular and the beds werent the most comfortable ive slept in, but the shower was good and for £12.50 pp pn inc breakfast, i really cant complain too much! Would recommend this hotel for a short stay, although more than a couple of nights will probably make you long for your own bed.
