“Clean, modern and centrally located”
Reviewed August 8, 2010

The Icon Hotel was a cozy, modern boutique hotel which met all our expectations which were high to begin with because of all the great reviews. We loved the contemporary design. The lobby was rather simple but the frontdesk people were exceptional in terms of service! They kindly stored our spare luggage for us and were helpful with directions and making reservations to restaurants. Since it was a smaller hotel, they were never too busy to assist us in any way.
The breakfast was in a really neat restaurant with a great selection of food. Hot food was also made to order. The mini pancakes with cream were scrumptous! Loved the complimentary use of a Mac computer for guests as well as the free WiFi which is not readily available in Europe.
Prague is not the easiest city to find your way around but the hotel is very centrally located to a main subway station and in walking distance to most of the major sites.
I would highly recommend this place to others.
The only small complaint was that it was a bit noisy from the streets at night being on the first floor.

We stayed at the Icon for a single night after staying elsewhere in Prague for a friend's wedding and can only say it was an absolute pleasure, the staff were friendly and attentive, the room was perfect (the bed was incredible) the service and menu were superb and the cocktails were much needed.

It looks very unassuming, tucked away on a street behind Wenceslas Square, but as soon as you enter reception you know you aren't going to be disappointed.

We will certainly stay at the Icon again, can't recommend it highly enough.

From the facade the Icon doesnt look like much, indeed it is very anonymous, but as soon as you enter the hotel you get hit with the feeling that this is a nice place where they have an eye for the details - soothing light, soft leather chairs while doing checkin and a supremely friendly and service-minded staff.
The staff was friendly, smiling and always very helpful throughout the stay - everyone I met at the front desk, the bar or the restaurant spoke perfectly fine English. The hotel certainly lives up to its four stars, but the staff are 5-star.

The single standard rooms are average size - but perfect for re-energizing with the magnificent Hästens beds (best sleep I have EVER had), excellent air conditioning and a nice bathroom with a tub (which was really nice after a long day of walking around).
Daily cleaning and changing of towels is one of those little dots over the i.

Breakfast was a good starter (bread, yogurt, cold cuts, jams, fruit, etc) and it was possible to extend this with hot food options (english breakfast, omelette's, pancakes, etc) - and the restaurant also offered excellent lunch and dinner options at very reasonable prices.

This hotel is certainly one of the best I have had the pleasure of visiting.

Icon is quite understated upon arrival but as soon as you reach the registration counter, you are greeted with a warm, friendly smile. The one bedroom suite I booked was clean with modern, comfortable furniture and bed. Breakfast included eggs cooked to order. The bar and lounge is casual which makes it easy to relax after a day of walking. I plan to stay here for at least a few days on every future trip to Europe.

My rooms where not small ( we changed to a smoking room ) both rooms where of a v.g. size I guess the top floor may be smaller.
The staff make this hotel, from the moment we arrived they never stoped smiling.
I was at the hotel for 6 nights, even when we changed rooms they moved all our belongings. I had my 70th birthday whilst at the hotel on my arrivaval back one day, a knock on our door, it was Charley with his big broad smile a bottle champers and a card from all the staff. very touching.
The ladies at breakfast, nothing was to much for them to do, as indeed the whole staff.

The Icon is a very good hotel in a good location. The only real downside is the size of the rooms. The rooms are real small. On the top floor where my room was they are even smaller because the sloped roof takes up half of that space. There was room for the bed... and that's about it.

Even smaller than the room was the shower. I'm 5"4' and I still had trouble even fitting in, bumping my elbows all the time.

Everything is clean and in order, very modern. The Hästens bed is of course great and comfortable. In-room Internet (with cable, no Wi-Fi) worked great without a hitch.

Breakfast selection is really limited but what there is is OK. The staff was friendly and nice.

The curtain for the small room window was a pretty flimsy pull-down. That meant the room was flooded with light at sunrise which made sleeping in a little harder. There's no noise from the street but you can pretty much hear every word of normal chatter from the next door rooms.

For the price this is a decent and modern hotel but some of the issues mentioned drag the grade a little bit.

Big shout out to Marcus who sold us with his friendliness, attention to detail and courtesy in showing us around the hotel even though we were not even staying there. We went to the Icon to have a cocktail at their famous bar and we never checked back into our other hotel! The same day, we secured our suite, returned to our old place, packed and checked into what would be one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at. After briefly mentioning that this was our engagement trip, we entered our room to find a personalized note congratulating us on our engagement, a bottle of champagne and rose petals on our coffee table. That alone could have been enough. We can't tell you how impressed we were with the hotel, location, design and staff. The staff was out of this world--probably the best service we have ever, ever experienced at any hotel. Several days in I suffered a nasty stomach flu and the staff was there with my fiance over several hours helping him translate to local pharmacists, calling, faxing, etc. It was a very touching and much appreciated. We will go back to Prague again soon and will definitely stay at the Icon again.
