Which of these hotels?

We are trying to decide among these:

Hotel Resince Retezova

Iron Gate

Hotel Pariz

Grand Hotel Bohemia

MaMaison Pachtuv Palace

Any comments or considerations we should be aware of?

Thanks!

Paris Hotel - heavily discounted,classy, spa & probably the closest to the station - your other Q. Good reviews: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g274707-d275253…

As you mentioned on Budapest Forum - you prefer "boutique" hotels, as much as I like Mamaison Hotels, I would not call them boutique..the main complaint on TA.fr & others: noise, smoking rooms not marked as such, air-conditioning... Actually, with 86 rooms, Paris hotel, though neat Art Nouveau style is probably not "boutique" either...

2. Re: Which of these hotels?

I'm really not concerned with which is closer to the station as I think they are all pretty close to each other and my question was as to the fare from the city center in general to the train station.

I do prefer small hotels but if a larger one is nice and a good price, that's fine too.

We don't have to be concerned with air conditoning since we will be there in November.

Recent comment by one of Prague DEs re Pariz

.................. Pariz suffer from noise pollution if your room faces the municipal house as every morning the garbage truck comes at about 0545, not for the garbage but for all the bottles from the municipal house and boy is it loud. Of course, if you are a heavy sleeper you could sleep right through it.

Pachtuv Palac is a residence so the rooms/suites will have a small kitchen, and some have washing machines/dryers - handy for some. The trick is to get a room on higher floors overlooking the river - wonderful views over Hradcany panorama.

Grand Hotel Bohemia - again ask for high floor rooms, some even have a balcony which is great even in November. The bar there is very expensive, but you don't have to use it.

Can't give much info on Retezova, but good quiet location in the centre.

Look also on Ventana and Kempinski.

Taxi prices answered on your other thread.

Lots of good advice!

To make it more complicated, I've now added these to the list:

Ventana

Savic

Cerny Slon (Black Elephant)

Can I rule any of these eight hotels out if we're looking for charm/character?

Interesting--the ones you chose are rated highest of the group on tripadvisor. This is the order--

Ventana

Ma Maison Pachtuv Palace

Retezova

Pariz

Grand Hotel Bohemia

Iron Gate

All but the last one are rated within the top 10% of hotels in Prague.

It looks like the Ventana is a new hotel? ....We aren't really concerned with amenities so much as ambiance . I've chosen based on location and cost, but ambiance is a little harder to discern, even with the photos.
