“Excellent location and service for a great value”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

A friend recommended me this hotel, and for the price, I booked it without even reading any reviews.

First thing that impressed me was the location. It's *really* close to the Prague Castle, and within walking distance from other major touristic spots, such as the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square. And even thought there are a lot of cafes and restaurants nearby, it's still a very calm place (not like on the other side of the river).

About the room, it was quite big, clean and silent (I stayed on the first floor, with a view of the street and it wasn't noisy at all). And the staff is very friendly and helpful. I didn't have that impersonal feeling that one usually has when staying in the big chains.

For the price they ask, it's a really good deal. I'll surely stay there again when visiting Prague.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here in August in a superior room with glassed space for bath and sink. Room was big and felt even bigger due to the glass walls. Service was outstanding. Breakfast was not too bad.

The days we stayed it was very hot outside and the AC was not working perfectly so it got kinda hot inside but otherwise everything was good. Private time in sauna and jacuzzi, free wifi, good service, beautiful room, good neighborhood.

15min walk to Old town, 1 minute to the Prague Castle, Observatorium just a few minutes away and so was another castle.

A big shopping center where the locals go not to far away and much much cheaper if your into shopping. When we go back we will most likely stay in the same area and probably in the same hotel.

I did not see any children in this hotel so maybe this is not so much for families?!

Dear Janne P,
Thank you very much for taking time to write such a great feedback as this one. We really appreciate everything you wrote down. We are also very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay in Prague. Our superior rooms have special design and we are pleased you appreciated it. About your family point we have to tell that this hotel is not very adapted for children but sometimes even families with children stay at our hotel. Children are always welcome.

We wish you all the best from Prague and we look forward to see you again.

I picked this hotel based on the reviews I read on Tripadvisor, and I am happy to say that it didn't disappoint! From the time I made my booking to when we got there, my experience was outstanding. I communicated with staff via Skype messaging, they arranged for a taxi pick up for us, so we felt safe and secure and didnt have to scramble to kronas when we arrived. The best things about this hotel are the location and value for the money. The castle was right behind us, and every major attraction was walking distance. The room and amenities were good and more than adequate - appropriate for the price of room and perfect for travellers who are looking for a budget friendly accommodations - but expect more than the average. The staff at reception was very helpful and friendly. There are no bellboys so dont expect someone to help with your luggage (although the receptionist was very quick and willing to offer her assistance!)

I do want to make a note that if you're walking back from old town/charles bridge, you have to walk uphill so keep this in mind and save some strength! Better yet, stop for a treat and enjoy the traditional baked donut rotisserie style (trdelink) on the way up (or down) - dont worry about the calories - you will walk it off!

I would defintiely stay at this hotel again when I get the chance to travel back to Prague.

The only negative worth mentioniong about this hotel from my perspective was the room lock - you have use a key to lock the door when leaving, and when inside your room. The key was hard to turn almost every time have to try more than once to lock the door.

The occasion for our trip to Prague was a romantic vacation. Already before having decided for a hotel close to the historic center, we had received excellent assistance by the friendly front desk ladies of Hotel Neruda. During our stay, my girlfriend and I enjoyed nicely designed superior rooms as well as excellent service. Summarized, I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to go for a romantic stay to Prague. Excellent in all categories.

What is seen on the website for this hotel and what is seen on the ground are vastly different. The best thing going for this hotel is the professional competence and friendliness of the front desk staff. We stayed here twice within two weeks, one room in the old part of the hotel and one room in the new. Both rooms were ultra-small and the so-called air conditioning was a joke. Our "new" room had a trendy, but totally dysfunctional bathroom. We had a very deep bath tub with no non-slip mat for the inside, a hand held shower head but no shower curtain. For elderly people like us, it was an accident waiting to happen. The location of the hotel was OK if you were young and in good physical shape. The walk from the nearest public transportation stop to the hotel was totally up a steep hill and not for the faint of heart!. The area around the hotel was charming, with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. While I would give this hotel a qualified recommendation to members of the younger generation, I would not recommend for seniors.

Thank you for taking time to write a review about hotel Neruda. I am really sorry you were not satisfied with your rooms on your double stay. We are a design hotel and some of our rooms have a special design. Sometimes some might find particular rooms not as practical as standard hotels may have, however many senior customers have stayed and we do try to help our clients as much as we can and offer them the best comfort we can. I am truly sorry your stay was not comfortable as you would have wished for. Hopefully next time we can provide you with more suitable room. Thank you for mentioning our positive staff.

We are truly looking forward to welcoming you back in hotel Neruda.

On arrival we was greeted at the desk by a very friendly helpful young lady who spoke excellent English, she told us because we were stopping for 9 night's we had been upgraded, all I can say is I wouldn't want 2 see the room we had been upgraded from, our room looked un finished with plastered wall's not painted, concrete floor not carpeted, a large piece of wood leaning against the wall with no apparent use ? The bath was lovely but not practical, the taps on the sink was loose, the window in the room was tiny and looked into the room opposite , the breakfast at best was average, Prague is a beautiful city with many wonderful places to eat, but on the one occasion we decided to eat in the hotel we was shocked to be told the restaurant was shut, it was only 8.20 pm, on the plus side the hotel has many hard working polite and friendly staff, nicole, tanja and michaela to name 3 who made our stay a memorable one
