“Highly recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you book ahead this hotel can be an excellent choice. First, the location is perfect. The Vltava River is a few meters away and the dock where the tour boats start and finish their voyages is five minutes on foot. There is a tram stop, Dlouha trida, five minutes away on foot and the Nemesti republiky metro stop for line B is five to ten minutes away in front of the Palladium shopping center, which is also convenient for shopping and eating. Walking slowly the Old Town Square is fifteen minutes away. The hotel is located in a quiet area so you can take walks at night without feeling the stress of the large crowds near the center. Just around the corner from the hotel is a main avenue, Revolucni, which has a tabacco shop for buying your transport tickets and a well stocked supermarket.

As for the hotel itself I was happy with the room, the service, and the breakfast. Our room, number 605 on the top floor (there are six floors) was much larger than a typical Ibis room and had light coming in on two sides. There was a beautiful view of the rooftops looking towards Old Town Square. The bathroom was large and clean and there was plenty of room for our suitcases. There was a small frigobar and a safe for keeping passports and extra money. There was also a coffee making machine and a variety of coffee, including decaf, and teas for that early morning pep-me-up.

As for the bed, yes there were two single beds put together and the mattress was perhaps firmer than some people are used to, but I would prefer a firm mattress to a saggy one. Finding the pillows too soft we asked for two more and they came immediately.

The staff at the front desk was always helpful and went out of their way to make reservations for the musical events and the different tours we took. As an English teacher I always pay attention to the language skills of workers in these situations and at least at the front desk the English was good. Some of the staff in the Benada restaurant and the girls serving at breakfast, on the other hand, could benefit from an intensive course in English. An example was the waiter at the Benada restaurant who could not carry on a simple conversation.

Breakfast, which was included in the rate, was fine, for me at least. There was a variety of hot foods, including bacon and scrambled eggs, sausages, and even pasta. There was even excellent oatmeal (porridge), which is rare in these restaurants. There was a large variety of breads, cakes, and pastries and the cold cereal section had four types of cereal, including sugarless muesli. Coffee was not fantastic, but from a machine coffee is rarely of the quality of Starbuck's or Costa's so one doesn't expect it to be so.

Hotel is located in an excellent place in the old town and you may walk everywhere in the center. Tram and bus stops are near. Very short trip to Palladium shopping center and Old Town Square.

Service was businesslike and good. Room was ok and overall clean and tidy, but the fitted carpet was stained. Couldn't open the windows and some periodic weird noise from the street (stayed in the 1st floor). Overall grade 4- (four minus) in scale 1-5.

Stayed there 3 nights with hubby and daughter. Room was enormous as well as bathroom. Air conditioning is central and does not work great. Had to ask for a fan. Breakfast is very good with a lot of options. Restaurant Benada's food is fabulous and is much recommended. We enjoyed the food there. Location is off the old town and a ten mins walk to central Prague. Taxi rate is about Eur 10 from the train station.

We stayed here for two nights during our Prague trip. I booked it online on their website and it is definitely wise to save/print the confirmation on their website as their system doesn't send an automatice confirmation email. We didn't need it for the check in but just in case... The room we got was quite spacious and it was clean. We asked for a non-smoking room but it clearly "used to be" a smoking room. Luckily we were able to open the windows, so that was ok. The elevators are quite small and during the busy times one waits quite a bit for it to stop (especially on the top floors). The breakfast buffet was ok - nothing really special. The first morning we got there at peak time (09.30am) and we had to "fight" for a table (not sure they have enough tables for all their guests). The reception staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived by car and were able to park it outside in the meter zone as it was Sunday (parking is free on Sunday) but Monday we had to move it at 8am and put it in the parking of the hotel which is EUR 30 per day/night (very expensive!).

Room Tip: Point out that you would like a non-smoking room (should you wish that) and ask for a room towards t...

The Clarion is close enough to central Prague (10 mins walk) and still far enough for peaceful sleep. The area has little traffic so it is quiet at night. The room was perfectly ok, nothing special, but clean and comfortable. Sound-proof door was nice. The air-con control did not work, though. Breakfast was OK, a bit crowded. Professional staff.

My wife and I were surprised and delighted with the quality and service at this hotel. Clean and comfortable room, very affordable and in a great location. Prague celebrates at night and this location, a 10 minute walk from the centre put us in a quiet area for a good sleep. The beds were great and the breakfast each morning was a feast. Well done, you know what a traveler needs in a hotel.
