Prague has become an expensive city to visit and to stay in a good hotel can cost even more than in parts of Germany. It's hard to believe but it is fact.
We drove to Prague during Easter 2011.
Eurohotel is a 3-star hotel belonging to a franchise similar to IBIS or ETAP. This particular hotel is located in the suburbs of Prague and the Chodov metro station is 15 mins walking. The walk is not very pleasant as it is the main road with a lot of cars. However, there is a bus which you can take. We bought a 72-hour travel card which allowed us to travel unlimited on the metro and buses. The metro ride into the center of Prague takes 30 mins. Next to the metro station is a huge shopping centre called the Chodov shopping centre. It has free parking.
The hotel itself is a cheap hotel which means it receives a big variety of guests. When we arrived, we saw a large group of American teenagers sitting on the floors. They were part of a tour group and I would imagine that this cheap hotel gets a lot of these groups. So I am not surprised to read reports of ruined carpets, considering the type of guests that stay there. We did not experience the bad issues which people have written about, and our room was exactly what we expected for the money we paid. It was reasonably clean and roomy for our "european" standards. We got complimentary breakfast and could eat as much as we like. The breakfast room was crowded in the morning but it is a huge hotel with many many guests. I honestly do not understand why people like to complain about things which, IMHO, are fair and square. You get what you pay. If you want something better then pay for it. Like I said, Prague is an expensive city to visit.
As for the unfriendly reception... there was one lady by herself who had to handle all the guests. Imagine yourself having to do this and tell me if you can keep the smile on your face for the entire day.
There is underground car parking available but it is not free parking. There is a KFC restaurant right next to the hotel which was great for me.
