Stayed at the San Marco Palace for four nights in July, along with my better half and two children, 8 and 10. Apart from the fact that three out of four beds fell apart when being used (which I McGyvered myself when housekeeping failed to do it), the hotel is pretty good. The location is excellent, about 5 minutes from the closest tram and metro stations, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The San Marco is cheap, and thus you shouldn't expect five star features either, but in a city like Prague, how much time do you really spend in your room?

Location:
About 250m south from the nearest Metro (I P Pavlova) and major tram line. Direct frequent (every 10min) trams to Charles bridge and the palace. Easy public bus journey from airport to Dejvicka metro, then metro to hotel (40mins, 28Cz).

Hotel:
Receptionists variable in friendliness, but helpful nonetheless. Sells tram / metro tickets (cash only). 1 (slow) internet connected computer for guests (free). Lift access stops mid-floor, requiring a climb of half flight of stairs. Old building, with wobbly bannister on staircase.

Room:
Got a massive 2+2 room for 3 people. Large double bed a bit too soft, with broken bed slats on one side. 2 singles in a side annex OK. Furniture a bit spartan, but OK. No desk or comfortable chairs. No safe. Bathroom nice size, but broken shower door, and appearance that hotel had no intention of fixing it; needed to put towels down to prevent flooding of the bathroom floor. Nevertheless, cleaned daily to a good standard.

Food:
Basic buffet breakfast: bread, cereal, jams, fruit, tea, coffee. No restaurant.
No coffee-making facility in room, but access to breakfast room throughout day for coffee if wanted.

Local amenities:
Small supermarket for drinks etc almost next door. Very close to tram and metro. Walkable to Wenceslas Square (expensive for tourists though).

Summary:
This place was cheap for 3 people in Prague. While not exactly a luxury hotel, it was clean. I would recommend as an alternative to dorm residences, but not as a true 3* hotel.

This is one of many hotels near the I.P. Pavlova subway station. It apparently was an apartment building which was converted to a hotel. Thus, my room was enormous, and its size (and the lack of wall decorations) made the room seem sparse. It had a double bed, large outdated velour sofa, and fairly nice Ikea-like light blonde Scandinavian furniture (a large dresser and a very large wardrobe). The only drawbacks were the minimal lighting, flimsy bedding, and bare floors. The bed was comfortable, and things were relatively clean although the floors could have used a good mop and wax job. The bathroom was good sized and clean, but bring your own shampoo and be prepared for fluctuating water temperatures. Breakfast was typical for central Europe (bread, cold cuts, cereal, yogurt, juice, milk) and served in the basement room. There is a lobby in the back of the first floor with a couple of sofas, a piano, and free internet access. The staff are young, friendly and speak good English. The location is the best you can hope for outside the tourist zones. It is a short 2 block walk to the I.P. Pavlova subway and tram stop, and there is a small grocery store, restaurant and ATM machine on the way to the subway. It is a 10 min walk to the bottom of Wencelas Square. Legerova is the major road leading into downtown Prague from the south, but the area is a bit deserted but safe at night. A great value for 35 euros a night for a single - but be prepared to pay in cash. I have also stayed at the Hotel Lunik and Hotel Anna - both nearby - they are nicer, truer hotels, but also more expensive (esp. the Anna).

We stayed at the San Marco Palace for 4 nights. The location was good for us, and we walked from there to almost all the sites we visited. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The rooms seem to have been recently refurbished, and are spacious, light and airy, and reasonably clean. So too the bathrooms. However, the furniture is cheap and uncomfortable. The bed boards in our initial room simply collapsed when I lay down (I'm a big guy but that never happened to me anywhere before!), and the clothes closets were chipped and their doors broken. Upon complaining, we were immediately given another room where the bed survived our stay...The walls are mostly bare, giving the room a stark character. There were good-sized tables and light chairs in each room, but not comfortable lounge-types chairs. The rooms can sleep up to 4 guests comfortably. If the management would invest in better furniture and hang some pictures on the walls, it would improve the quality significantly.

The breakfasts were plentiful and tasty.

We got a good deal through Venere.com (40 euros/night for B&B for 2), so relative to other offers for the time of our stay, I feel that we got our money's worth. I would recommend the hotel for budget-minded travellers.

Our first visit to Prague , all I can say is we will definately go back!

We arrived late afternoon after braving the cedaz and then the metro , soo easy to use.

We were met at the reception desk by a friendly helpful girl who seemed only too pleased for us to be there, not miserable or un helpful as some have experienced.

Our room though basic and a bit sparce of furniture was absolutely huge for the 2 of us , loads of cupboard and hanging space for us to fill over the next 3/4 days a perfect base for us.

Breakfast was basic but plenty and with about a 2 hour gap you could stay and fill yourself on as much bread , fruit , and hot coffee as you needed, all i will say is if the hotel is full the breakfast room seems quite small and fills rapidly, but as most people are in and out fairly quickly this was never a problem for us.

the rooms were cleaned as much or as little as you required , even the cleaners were polite.

I will not go on about Prague itself as that is for you to find out , but this hotel is a perfect start!

at the end of our stay the hotel booked us a private cab which was exactly on time and took about 1/2 hour to the airport for about £20 , which was cheaper than some taxi companies. Mind you I think it cost a total of about £10 for the 2 of us to go by cedaz and metro but took a lot longer .
All in all a great stay and even the cold snowy weather seemed to set the scene for us.

A tip ( there is a great restaurant called " restaurant Pravek" which is about a 5-10 min walk on Sokolská 60, 120 00 Praha 2
(beside I.P.Pavlova square) soo funny.
