Reviewed July 8, 2014

It's outside of downtown but with the tram or metro you can be there quickly (15 or so minutes). The price for what you get is fantastic. The people that run the guest house are some of the most helpful of any place I've stayed at, they really take care of their guests.

They have restaurant recommendations that are nearby that were excellent, better than the downtown places we ate at, and significantly cheaper too.

We stayed at Lida for week in June 2014. I'll keep this review shorter as the other reviewers have covered everything perfectly. Our hosts are amazing and so hard working - they are always there and incredibly accommodating. Do not hesitate to stay here when in Prague. A few tips when you do: the public pool is only one tram stop away and a fun way to spend a hot day with locals - it's huge. There are a number of restaurants near Lida, our favourite, which we only tried on our last night, was Palatino. It's Italian and really very good. We also liked the place across the street from Sklenik which is very close to Lida - just sat on the patio and had pizza and beer. For Czech food, U Kroka is great and a lovely walk through Vysehrad and down the hill. Just wander and enjoy the lovely city. Thanks again, Lida!

Room Tip: If you are going while the weather is warm, see if you can get a room on the ground floor. We were t...

Returning to Lida after an absence of three years, we were prepared for a change. But quite to the contrary, Jiri and Jan and their wives have managed to maintain the momentum and, day after day, continue to play host to their guests with gusto. No request is too outrageous (one afternoon we found Jiri babysitting a 19 month old boy so his parents could have a quiet meal in town – alone), no guest too outlandish. They are an extraordinary foursome who make a visit to Lida an event in itself. Guest rooms are comfortable and well-appointed; breakfasts are generous enough to cover lunch (and are not subject to strict time limitations); and Jan and Jiri have tickets to every possible cultural event available (often at discount prices). It’s no wonder that so many people – including us -- return repeatedly.

We stayed at this wonderful guest house for a week this past May. It is in an excellent location, a short walk to both the tram or the metro station that takes you into the old town and main sites. It is in a quiet neighbourhood away from the busy noisy touristy areas. The owners of the guest house are the most helpful, knowledgeable and kind people we met during our one week stay. I would highly recommend the Lida Guesthouse for singles, couples, and families travelling to Prague.

Room Tip: The family suite on the top floor is best if you are not too tall as the ceilings are slanted.

We spent 3nights here recently and it was great. We arranged a pickup from Cesky Krumlov to the guesthouse directly. The price was reasonable and so convenient, it was well worth it. Jan and Peter was very welcoming and Jan shared everything he know about Prague with us. He was very helpful. We really enjoyed our family suite room and appreciated being able to use the kitchen in our room. Breakfasts were very good, fresh and tasty. Location of the guesthouse is perfect, quite and comfortable to stay, and close to tram and metro. Eveyrthing was perfect. Best stay ever! We highly recommend this guest house..

The Lida Guest House was a wonderful place to stay! The owners are friendly and warm, and go out of their way to accommodate odd requests. The room was quiet and clean, the bed was comfy, and the water was hot. The wifi was reliable, and the breakfasts were great. The pick-up to and from the airport were also convenient and wonderful.
You'll find the centre of Prague to be very busy and touristy, so it's a bit of a relief to leave it at the end of the day to return to the guest house, which is in a typical Czech Prague neighbourhood. There's even a garden where you can relax.
One thing I really appreciated was that I was offered the use of a 30 day metro pass (I was in Prague for 4 days, so I payed for 4 days of use). This saved me money, and was a wonderful convenience. I could use it not only on the metro, but also on the trams (tram #17, which runs along the river downhill form the guest house, takes you right to the centre of town).
I will definitely stay here again, and the sooner, the better!

Room Tip: If you think that the yapping little dog across the street will wake you up, ask for a room away fro...

My husband and I recently stayed at Lida. Eveyrthing was perfect including pick up from the train station. You can feel the love from this family run guesthouse. Everything was clean, extremely comfortable, en suite bathroom was great. Breakfast was excellent more than enough to eat, in fact I think we ate too much every morning. Jan took us to a morning city tour. Jiri was your "one stop shop" for anything you need in Prague. Best stay ever!

Room Tip: I prefer to have my own bathroom so makes sure to try to book the one with the ensuite bathroom. Oth...
