“Great little hotel!”
Reviewed June 29, 2009

have stayed at City Crown in 2008 and 2009 and the standards and quality haven`t changed and all. I have no hesitation in recommending it. The hotel is centrally located on a quiet street about 10 minutes walk to the Old City. The rooms are clean, comfortable, the en-suite bathrooms in particular are quite spacious. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Internet is free of charge (WIFI and PC in reception). Hotel has a lovely green courtyard with flowers where you can grab free tea or coffee and rest after a busy day. Overall this is a great little 3 star hotel with lots of character.

I booked with this hotel at which to stay while exploring Prague. At first I was very impressed - except that there was no welcome basket that they claim to have ready for each guest who stays longer than 5 days, but to me that was no big deal.

However, upon returning after a night out, the staff were all congregated in the front room and as I walked by they stopped talking for a moment. A second or two later I heard one of the male staff describe me as a "typical gay from Canada" and the others laughed as he continued to say that "he has to try not to laugh" when encountering those of my particular demographic. I could hear the others laughing at this as I stood to catch the elevator. I felt completely humilated and angry and had to process what had happened.

Fortunately for me I am resilient and minutes later after getting my stuff ready in my room I went back downstairs and confronted them very sternly. They apologised and tried making excuses about how they were joking and had had a few drinks etc. and offered me a beer, I guess to "compensate". Overall, I would not recommend this hotel if you are of any minority as god knows how they may end up treating you!

We have just returned from 4 days stay at the City Crown. We walked to the old city centre on the first day, it took about 25 minutes, so we went to the old city centre by metro or tram on the other days. It is very easy, cheap and comfortable way to travel. In our opinion the central location of the hotel is not very essential in Prague, because travelling by bus, tram and, metro is very quick, it only takes about 5-10 minutes. Hotel is 5-10 minutes away from the metro and tram stop. So location of the hotel is not a disadvantage. Our room was very clean, bathroom, which I care the most, was nice, clean and useful. We did not have a problem with the cleanliness of the room. They made up the room and emptied the trash every day. Breakfast was good also. Egg, bacon, cheese, jam, honey, butter, cake, corn-flakes, orange juice, coffee and tea were available. The best part was tea, coffee and biscuits were free all day. It is very nice to have a cup of "free" tea and biscuits at the garden of the hotel on an evening after a long, tiring day. Our room was very silent. the enviroment of the hotel was not very nice but this was not a problem, we turned back to hotel safely very late in the night. So if I go back to Prague, I will go back to hotel again.

We stayed over weekend and had a good deal with parking when booked directly with hotel. Essential for us was safe parking and many hotels dont offer own garage or parking.

Hotel staff were awesome! Always greeted us with a smile and helped us with trips and recommended restaurants.

Rooms are very nice, good-sized well equipped with WiFi,SAT-TV+DVD, safe and refrigerator. Also bathroom are big, clean and nice.

We were lucky with good weather so we could have our breakfast at hotels lovely and peaceful backyard, there you also could have coffee and biscuits hole day free of charge!

We preferred walking walking in to the old city and old square with about 10-20 min. walking then going back to hotel with tram we noticed if you take another tram-stop after football-stadium you dont need to walk upphill and distance are the same.

We followed staffs recommendation and found many nice local restaurants especially we liked one greek, Olympos with nice outside taverna.

We think it was very good value for money and will definitely go come back again. We will recommend it to alll our friends and anyone that need a comfy and nice hotel in Prague

After reading the reviews on this site we decided to book 3 nights at the City Crown Hotel ,We booked direct with the hotel and found them very helpful with good communcations (check out there web site as they do some good deals)
Our room was on the fourth floor. It was spotlessly clean as is all of the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it had a whirlpool bath (shear bliss after a long days walking around Prague) and a computer with free internet access. It was a good size, well furnished with plenty of storage space it also had a free safety deposite box and a fridge which we turned off at night as it was slightly annoying when trying to sleep
As other reviewers have mentioned a nice touch is the free coffee/tea and biscuits in the breakfast room that are available at all times
The breakfast room is rather small but as breakfast is served from 8.30am till10.30am this was not a problem, only on our first morning did we have to wait for a table.There is also a pleasant courtyard were breakfast can be taken and you are allowed to smoke as the hotel is non-smoking. The breakfast is the usual continental type of bread rolls,cheese, ham cereals,yogurts,cakes etc but you can have as much as you like
A downside of the hotel is that it is situated on a steep hill, a little way from the centre,and on the edge of a run down area of Prague, but we never felt threatened at any time during our stay.There are frequent buses and trams to the centre from the bottom of the hill, although if you by the park and along by the railway station you can be in Wenceslas Square in 10-15 minutes. There is a metro station 400metres away.
We can thoroughly recommend this hotel for those on a budget and if we return to Prague we would definitely return to this hotel.

The staff at the City Crown hotel was amazing! They went above and beyond to help us figure out the city and how to meet up with other travelers in our group who were staying at another hotel. It was 5* service! The location is farther away than other hotels but it's just a quick 10-15 min tram ride into the city. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom. I would recommend anyone to stay at this hotel who is traveling to Prague.

This hotel is an excellent choice for budget travelers.

The rooms are very clean with comfortable beds. There is an easy to use safe in the room. The bathroom is large enough. There was one channel with English in addition to CNN on the television. The WIFI in the room was always working and free!

There is a big elevator (just a little slow) to go up to the upper flows of this botique hotel. The breakfast is very good for European standards. The staff is very helpful friendly.

It is a little hike from the city but not too difficult if you have time.

The only downside is that the area is a little rundown as the renovation of this post communist country is progressing extremely well but started in the center and is spreading out.

  • Liked — The comfort of the room
