The pictures showed us rooms, that we never saw - it was a blatantly worse standard. We were pushed to pay extra taxes at arrival and a deposit I still havent received back. The cleaning was substandard and didnt happen - crumbs my daughter had spilled day 1 was still present when we left - and it was super filthy...

We got a taxi from the airport to this hotel and were charged 750 ck, £35 approx, however, if you cross the road outside the airport and catch the number 100 bus it will take you to the metro station (Ziclin) where you can get the underground into prague itself. We got off at Mustek which is town centre. This...

I would avoid this hotel if I could. Only good thing about it, is that its close to the tram, subway and an excellent dining place. The room was small, it was worn down with cracks everywhere, it smelled badly, the breakfast was so so (better than at a backpackers place) and for the price we were paying you would...

We stayed for three nights and were really pleased with the hotel. Our room was very comfortable and well furnished with interesting old pieces. The staff were professional and pleasant. The breakfasts were large with lots of selection. Location is perfect – just walking distance to the Wenceslas square. We all recommend.

We've stayed to this hotel during our summer vacation to Prague. As Prague is a city you can walk all attractions are really close to the hotel even if it's not to historical centre. Also, a tram station helps those who want to visit Castle area and a metro station is close enough. I enjoyed the breakfast, the stuff is...

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
