While planning this trip we read a lot of reviews, but two convinced me this was worth a try and we were so glad we stayed here (February 2012). There are a lot of whining reviews about the distance from center city and how far the tram stop is from the hotel, PLEASE do not listen to these pompous individuals. The hotel sits in zone 4, Branik approximately five miles from the center of Old Town. The tram (#17) will take you straight to the Charles Bridge in 15 minutes and the tram stop is two blocks from the hotel entrance. The neighborhood is blue collar working class, the hotel is a local dinner spot on Friday nights so they get pretty busy. The rooms were large by European standards, comfortable beds, limited TV (8 stations; 2 Czech, 1 EuroSport in English and/or German, the rest German), clean, new bathrooms, clean towels daily, enough closet space for our clothes and storage for our suitcases. There is a restaurant downstairs that has excellent food as we ate here 6 out of the seven nights we stayed - good size portions, Pilsner on tap, Kozel dark beer in bottles, serves two good Czech white wines and you should try the Godet Pear Cognac (they sold us a full bottle for $30 US, it's 62 EU on Godet website). Most of our dinners were about $24 - $29 for both my wife and myself including a wine and a Kozel. Jon at the bar is about 23, speaks very good English, passable German and is very friendly and helpful, the woman, Jane she said her name was, has limited English but communicates well through sign language (pointing and miming, not real signing). We felt very comfortable in this environment, more so than in any hotel we have ever stayed in, regardless of the city or country. Staying at the Hotel U Divadla can enrich your stay in Prague and give you a warm fond memory, riding the tram to and from center city exposes you to the life of the Czech citizen. There is a shopping mall about two miles on bus #198 that has outstanding prices on chocolate (at Tesco), clothing, shoes - sorry, no glass or crystal here. There is a pizza place around the corner from the hotel and an Italian restaurant near the bus station. Penny Market is convenient for water, tissues, any personal items you may need, and there is a bakery across from the hotel. Enjoy your stay!
