We stayed at the Grand Praha for 4 nights during December - wonderful time to be in Prague due to the Xmas Markets. What a gorgeous city and a gorgeous hotel! You won’t find any complaints here!
You cannot get a better location or hotel in my opinion in Prague than this one. My husband and I are seasoned travellers – We are early 30’s, have stayed in places anywhere from your lower end of the scale to your absolute upper – I am fussy where we stay but we are also realistic in the type of accommodation we choose. This hotel did NOT disappoint at all!
Location - Smack bang in the middle of the Old Town (where you want to be staying - location, location, location!). I counted the steps to the Astronomical Tower - under 40 steps from the outside of the hotel to the Clock. Amazing!
Xmas Markets is stunning - again right outside your hotel. Truly a beautiful time to be in Prague. Go crazy with the Czech delights! It's a dieters hell but oh so worth it!
Breakfast was fantastic - a bit of everything for everyone. Great start to the day!
Yes - there are a lot of stairs but get over it! This is Europe - there are stairs everywhere and really - they are not bad at all. Do your research prior to going to this hotel if mobility or climbing stairs is an issue – there is a lift though so it’s not a major problem.
Rooms are lovely - decorated beautifully in antique bohemian style! Stunning! Comfy beds, great mattresses. Beautiful bathrooms. Has everything!
Try to get a room that is not fronting the square though - if you suffer from jetlag like I do then you will find it hard to sleep as there is a lot of noise from outside (Room 219 I think) however this is a tourist hotel so noise is expected. My husband had no problem at all nodding off! However, I politely asked if there were any alternatives (we had crossed 3 time zones in a matter of days so I really wanted a bit of sleep) and they moved us with no fuss at all - we had the room up the stairs above 219 and wow - for the same price it was gorgeous and bigger as well. More private too!
Explore the restaurants outside the Square if possible - more in tune with the locals, cheaper and you really get to experience the proper Czech way of life - including lots of cig smoke during dinner! Again, you are in Europe - get over it.
No one should complain about this hotel - it's fantastic, central and close to everything. I am a realistic traveller and write realistic reviews! You will not be disappointed staying here.
