“Very nice over all!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

This is a very nice hotel in a perfect location in Prag! Excellent service from the staff! They helped us with booking taxi and gave us a great tour on the map, where to go, eat, see and so forth. The breakfast was great caus u could order precicelly what you wanted, eggs bacon and so.
The rooms were luxurius and clean. Beds were great!
The only minus was the doors to the room. All noice from the hallway went straight through. That was really bad. Had to sleep with earplugs. Sounded like the people walking in the hallway was in the room. Allthouhg they gave us earplugs in the reception!:)
Over all a great stay! Defenetley recomend this place!

Excellent hotel in a quiet street close to the new city. Very friendly staff - when we arrived one of the managers was nice enough to give us a "tour" of the room and point out where everything was located and gave us some great suggestions for things to do in Prague. Room was spacious and very comfortable. The all day breakfast was an added bonus - and the food was very good. Nice tapas bar connected to the hotel. Good wifi connection. All in all a wonderful stay. I cant find one fault.

We spent 4 nights at the Icon Hotel and overall had a very enjoyable experience.
We loved the design of the hotel, our standard room was fine, bathroom clean and contemporary. Not brilliant toiletries and could have done with a bathrobe but just a personal thing.
The receptionist on arrival was very friendly and efficient, she gave us a map and marked on there points of interest, restaurants she recommended and tram stops.She then took us up to our room and showed us all the amenities, we especially appreciated the fingertip sensor safe.
We had room 303 which was street side, the temperature was fine as we had the heating off most of the time.
small niggles - alot of noise in the early morning especially, from the street so it may be an idea to ask for a room that overlooks the courtyard instead? Also the soundproofing is not great and we heard people talking next door on our first night, but i put my earplugs in and slept ok.
Loved the breakfast every morning and you can choose off the a la carte menu all day if you want so no worries that you may miss breakfast if you had a heavy night before!!
We also had a meal on our first night in the hotels restaurant where they serve tapas, very enjoyable and reasonably priced too.
Definately recommend this hotel.

I stayed here with my partner for 6 nights for an Easter break. There are a lot of good points to this hotel. I think I have never had such an warm, friendly and efficient welcome from the reception staff. In fact whenever we had requests, such as booking restaurant tables, nothing seemed too much trouble. Our deluxe room (301) was comfortable (especially the bed), with good features such as fingerprint enabled room safe and ipod dock (through the TV), good free wifi.

The design of the hotel and the rooms is great - very contemporary. In particular, the bar lounge has a cool feel with good quality club lounge music and is great for cocktails, and the tapas they serve there. It appears to attract locals as well as hotel guests.

The breakfast was excellent each morning - wide selection of cereals, fruit, meats and cheeses, pastries as well as a la carte eggs, pancakes and omelettes all within the b&b price. Again helpful serving staff.

The hotel is also in a great location, set in a generally quiet side street - 5 minutes walk from Wenceslas Square and the edge of the old town. On the Sunday morning (after a late night), we did have a problem with some workmen breaking up furniture right outside the hotel with a sledge hammer at 7 am in the morning but, the receptionist went out to ask them to be quiet when we called up so we couldn't ask for more from the hotel.

I would love to give this place a 5 rating but cannot for two main reasons: almost every night except Monday, a thumping beat noise which appeared to be coming from a club was audible all night until 5 am in the morning. It was not very loud and I tended to fall asleep through it but loud enough to keep you awake sometimes if, like my partner, you are not able to "zone out" from it. It did not worry us enough to complain but we did ask on departure where the noise was coming from. The receptionist said that he had not had any other complaints but noted that there was a club next door (not related to the hotel) had recently reopened. He said that he would take it up with the club. He said that our room was on the same side as the club, so perhaps the rooms higher in number (302 - 307) might be less affected. If you have the option, rooms closest to 307 probably are ones to aim for if this problem persists.

The other problem we encountered was that the room got far too hot. Being winter (still) and very cold out, the hotel's heating / aircon system was switched to only heating. It was too hot particularly at night. Reception said that all we could do was turn the heating fans off completely. The room was still too hot and we had to get into a routine of opening the window for 10 minutes before going to bed to let the cold air in - and sometimes opening it for a few minutes during the night when the heat got too much again. Given that I am a person who normally feels the cold, this is not just a personal preference issue. Having said that, this is a problem presumably only in the cold winter months but it really does need to be fixed.

One final thing - please upgrade the shower gel - I have had better in a number of budget hotels - it is not good when you struggle to get the gel even to lather up.

Putting all of this together, we had a good stay but it would have been perfect if they sorted out the temperature and get the club to turn its music way down / off at a reasonable hour.

Room Tip: Choose a room on as high a floor as possible and further away from the basement club (say 304-307)

The hotel itself is absolutely great : staff is very very kind & helpful, the rooms are clean and very very quiet, the bed.. oh the bed... I've never seen a bigger bed in my life! And SO confy ! Yes the temperature in the room was a bit hot BUT in winter, that's something I did appreciate. Breakfast is absolutely delicious & fresh (standard breackfast, eggs, cheese & bacon, ham, muesli, orange, apple juice, fresh & dried fruits, homemade pancakes etc...). Regarding the room, there was only one thing I was a bit disappointed of : the view on pipes...

It's located in the center of Prague, really near almost anything you want to see, but it's in the New Town, which is, from my point of view, not the greatest neighborhood. I though Old Town (near the Castle) had more charm, but still, it's great to visit or if you want to shop for instance.

Anyway : great hotel ! I would stay again.

Special tip : If you book directly on their website, you get some free services!

We stayed in the Icon hotel for three nights and it was perfect.. The staff were very friendly and very efficient...they couldn't have been more helpful. The location is good its only about a 10 min walk from the old part of the city and 10 mins from the main train station. Breakfast had a great variety but the best part is that they serve it all day so there's no rush to scramble down to get it. They also have a wellness centre with 20% discount for guests and it was well worth it! A great stay all around.

The Icon once again proves itself to the favorable ratings it has received. Good location, friendly dedicated staff to name a few. The room is nicely and contemporary decorated with very comfortable bedding.
The breakfast really highlighted our stay. Plenty of breakfast items and coffee choices, with hot items were made to order. Eventually we could skip our lunch. It is true that there is no need to budget your lunch if you stay at Icon.
Lastly I have to mention that they were very accommodating to our early arrival. We really enjoyed our stay.
