Reviewed February 2, 2013

Me and my wife spent three nights during January 2013. From begining we felt like home. the receiption was friendly and invisting. Altough the room wasnot ready yet, they found another room available. The rooms is conveinient and well equiped with all necessary. Breakfest is wonderful and so personal. because the hotel is reletively small, you feel like everyone is serving you. each day there is a different surprise. white wine during breakfast or very romantic shaping of your towels like ducks... The price value for what is givven is enormous.

The hotel is two blocks from the underground and in a very quiet area. The personnel in the reception, do their outmost to provide tips and instruction for restaurants etc.

We will defenetially return to this hotel and will recommend it to everyone we know.

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year, Everything the reviews say is true. Fantastic staff, lovely room - we had a General suite which was larger with a bathroom and separate shower room plus sitting area with second TV and computer - substantial breakfast with plenty of choice including oysters wih smoked salmon! There is a nice bar in the basement which was always quiet and just right for a quiet drink before heading out for the evening.
The hotel arranged transport to and from the airport which was comfortable, inexpensive and convenient.
We had some lovely meals especially Suteren on the other side of the river towards the Charles Bridge - we also went to a floating restaurant (Botel) just behind the hotel on our first night - it was raining and cold so we did not venture far, the food was very good and reasonably priced - beware, though that smoking is still allowed in some restaurants.
Prague is a lovely and interesting town for a city break and we would definitely recommend Hotel General. We will return next time we visit Prague (when it is a bit warmer!)

My husband and I visited Prague at the beginning and end of a trip at Christmas/New Year's to Prague and Austria. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. They remembered who we were and what we liked from day to day; and made sure any concern we had was corrected on our return visit. The breakfast was spectacular and the restaurant fabulous. It's a block or so from the tram and underground, making it convenient to many sites offered. I will definitely stay again when in Prague!

This is the best hotel we had on out trip around Europe in the winter of 2012/13. We had the General Suite which has separate bedroom, sitting room and 2 spacious bathrooms. A computer is provided in the room but as well the room has free WiFi. Hotel staff are very friendly and always pleased to help. Breakfast was great with special omelet orders available.
Hotel is on the Lesser side of the river but easy access to the old sector is available on the trams.
Would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

We are from Buenos Aires, and arrived in Prague from Spain, where we have relatives.
It was our first time in Prague.
In Argentina and Spain we were told about concerns regarding the quality of hotels in Prague.
What we can say, according to our first hand experience is that not only this hotel but its staff too, are first class.
The room was nice and large, warm and very comfortable.
And, although it faced the street, we heard no noises, neither from the outside nor from inside the hotel.
The hotel is a bit away from the points of interest, but a metro station is a few blocks away, so, you can reach every place in a few minutes.
And, for those fond of beer, Staropramen and its Visitor's Centre is at five minutes walk.
The staff was very kind and helpfull, from the very beginning of our stay to the last moment.
They gave us all the information we requested, places to go, to eat, etc.
In a few words, a beautiful city, excellent hotel and superb staff.
Of course, we strongly recommend it, and hope will return.

For my first visit to Prague, I chose Hotel General based on nice reviews in Tripadvisor, and indeed I was very happy with my choice. I visited during a low season in January, so the price was very attractive. My flight got delayed by a couple hours, but the hotel driver checked the online schedule and came to pick me up on time. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a staff, Victoria, along with a complimentary glass of fine champaign, and she gave me a nice overview of the city, transportation, restaurants, theaters, etc. The front desk offered money exchange service at very good rates, so I didn't have to use banks or other expensive services in the city center.
Breakfast was pretty good, and the restaurant staffs were so friendly and eager to help, too.
I stayed in a junior suite, and it was a good-sized room (by Europe's standard), with a high ceiling, nice interior, free bottles of water every night, and free internet.
As many other reviewers noted, the hotel is across the river from the city center (it takes ~10 minutes by the tram). At first I thought the location was a bit odd, but soon I felt pretty safe to travel around via tram even till late night.

I had a wonderful week in beautiful Prague (it was a bit cold though!), and staying at Hotel General made my trip all the more enjoyable, especially because of their friendly staffs who were always smiling and eager to help. I'll be sure to visit Prague again, and very likely to choose Hotel General again.
