“Uncomplicated good value”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Just back from a sort break - chose the hotel from British Airways list of options, and found it a very good choice. An easy 15-minute walk from the Airport Express bus stop at the station, and very well placed near the top of Wenceslas Square - 15 minutes walk down to Old Town Square, and a further 5 to Charles Bridge, so ideal position. Arrived at noon, but the charming receptionist was quite happy (with a ready smile) to let us have our room early. Room simple and modern but with everything necessary (including a kettle! Brits, take your teabags and some Marvel! They don't do milk.). Breakfast was a very good selection of continental plus (allegedly) hot items - I had two stone cold fried eggs, but that's the only gripe. Clean and well maintained, and a friendly greeting from reception every time we went in or out. We would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: Our high-floor street-facing corner room was a little larger than average and not at all noisy.

This is a modern hotel, very clean and offers a good variety of breakfast. It does have a lounge but no bar so you can't sit and have a drink..
Its just off Wenceslas Square near Muzeum Metro. We walked from here into the main square and then walked over Charles Bridge to The Castle.
We went on a "free tour" called Prague Extravaganza which was very helpful and then paid a tip at the end (but you didn't have to). this was a lot cheaper than booking with the other tours.
Plenty of bars and places to eat. a 0.5L of beer in the main square was about £3.50, but if you went one block back you could find it for £1 a 0.5L
over all a good trip.

When i checked i got greeted but one of coldest front desk lady i have ever seen. It seems that i was bothering her. A smile was not an option.
After that painful experience i went to my room. Decent, clean not big, a tube as a TV and a very very hard mattress.
The Breakfast was included and decent. Its was a buffet just like you can expect. The service was cold just like the front desk lady. Maybe the language barriere was the problem.
Close to everything. I didnt use any public transportation. The main place was just a corner away.
Overall i'd recommend this place.

Well placed, at a 10 minutes walking distance from the city Center. Hotel is clean, space in the room acceptable and breakfast ok. However I would rate it as 3-star hotel (not 4). Big drawback: the service is not friendly at all. I was making the reservation through Hotwire.com, so you can not see which hotel until you have paid.

Ver good rate price/quality. Located in the center of Prague, is very easy to reach all interest touristic places. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean and modern.

Also the buffet breakfast make you start the day full of energy. Highly recommendable.

Archibald City Hotel
Archibald City Hotel was the first stop on our two week long Euro Trip and I must say that it totally set the standard for the rest of the places we stayed in. Although on the smaller side, our room (a double room) was spotless and equipped with all the necessary amenities. The breakfast was plentiful- lot of cereal, bread, hams and cheeses to choose from. The people at the reception were friendly and prompt in answering all our queries. Considering the price we paid (less than all the hotels that we stayed in Europe) our experience was impeccable. The location too is pretty central and it is a safe walk to the hotel at night. Also, wifi is free in the room and we had pretty decent reception.
The only cons that I can think of are the tiny bathtub (very narrow and pretty high to climb into) and the joined twin beds (uncomfortable if you are a couple and want to cuddle). Also if you're looking for it, the hotel has no distinct charm unlike most European hotels and B&Bs. It is just what it promises- a clean and comfortable hotel in a good location.
I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Prague!

The hotel is on a busy road, but just round the corner you are on to a quiet street leading to Wencelas Square. We stayed for 4 nights.

Not far from the Old Town, Charles Bridge and within walking distance of Prague Castle although tram stops are not far away (tram 22 takes you to the castle).

Room was comfortable and spacious, bathroom large and immaculate, maid service excellent. Well stocked mini bar in room. Our only concern was on arrival there was no milk in the room to go with our coffee/tea however we rang reception and was told to go down and he would give us some.

Breakfast of cold meats, salad,fruit, cereals, bacon, eggs, sausages, pastries and breads on offer

Although there are strip bars round the corner we found it a very safe area to be walking around.

We found a very friendly bar on the side street where meals and drinks were very reasonably priced

All in all a very enjoyable holiday and would go back.
