“Nice but not up to usual Kempinski standard.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

On checking in to this hotel we had to change rooms. The room smelled strange. After we moved rooms to another room which did not smell as bad it was discovered that the housekeeping spray a smell reducer like fabreeze. If you suffer from allergies this may not be the hotel for you. What happened to good old fashioned airing? The entrance to the hotel is small. Several times we could not get in to the hotel as large parties were arriving and were being organised on the pavement. There is a large garden at the back and I consider this bad management that these parties aren't dealt with by a welcoming drink there instead of in the front. The hotel is sumptuous enough, rooms are modern bathrooms are good I'm surprised this hotel has a 5 star considering there is no pool or spa. Common areas such as corridors, lifts are not air conditioned. The problem with this hotel is the staff. Some are great, the young chap at breakfast. Both porters and the concierge. However others seem to be working to a script. At breakfast we asked for a plain omelette with mushrooms on the side. I got 1 mushroom finely chopped. My husband asked for soft boiled eggs they were hard boiled. When we complained on both occasions we were told that was the way the hotel do it. Silly us we thought we were staying in a 5 star hotel??? However they did replace the eggs but asked us how long we wanted them cooked. It actually said on the breakfast menu hard or soft boiled eggs but we were made to feel as if there was something wrong with us. I recently wrote a review that said the Volcan in Lanzarote had a breakfast as good as a Kempinski. What I meant was it had a breakfast as good as the Kempinski in Istanbul. This hotel is no where near that hotel or others in the chain. Today ( we haven't left yet) we asked for a late check out as we thought we had it included in our package. No not available which leaves us asking why it was advertised as such in the first place? The management of this hotel need to train their people to be more flexible. If you come to Prague and want 5 star,I would try the Four seasons or the Mandarin Oriental. This hotel severely let's the brand down. After this experience here I would probably not stay in another Kempinski.

Room Tip: Ring in advance so your room is not over perfumed.

This is, by far, the most beautiful hotel we've ever been in. The room, the ambience, the closets. Each room is a suite. The bath room I'm packing up and taking home. It's just fabulous. Staff very polite, courteous and just nice. Friendly too. Helpful. It rained and they lent us umbrellas! You will just love it here!

Loved this hotel - close to our business needs, quiet, understated customer service - met our needs in every way. Close to Old Town, safe, clean, spacious room. Stayed in a junior suite - loved the Nespessro coffee in the morning. I don't normally drink coffee but needed this amenity to overcome a little bit of jet leg and to stay awake for meetings.Would highly recommend if location fits yoru needs.

I would have given this hotel a higher rating except for a few problems: 1. The concierge recommended Best Tours for a tour of Terezin (Theresienstadt). The tour guide was relatively uninformed, the stops on the tour were too brief ( 30-40 minutes in the Ghetto Museum is insufficient ) and we were not taken back to the hotel after the tour was over. 2. The reception clerk refused to change a 50 Euro note for two 20's and a 10, "because the Kroner is the national currency of the Czech Republic". However, when we paid Euros in restaurants and stores, we were given our change back in Euros. 3 At breakfast on one day, there were not enough servers on board to clear the tables, so we were seated at a table for 8, with 6 others from a tour group. We complained, and then were seated at a table for the two of us. Positives: the hotel is in a good location and one can walk to the various important sites in Prague; the maid service is excellent; the rooms are quite comfortable.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for a detailed review and comments following your stay with us. I am glad to hear that you have enjoyed your stay.

I am sorry to hear that the guided tour did not meet your expectations. Although our concierge suggests primarily private guided tours as oppose to group bus tours, the Best Tour company is our main partner and we have not had a negative experience with them, so your feedback was concerning for us and has been passed onto their management to take necessary measures. Your feedback will definitely help to improve their service to their future customers.

Regarding your request for breaking down EUR currency, there was a misunderstanding.
Our reception does not posess foreign currency cashier, but only CZK cashier due to Czech Crown being an official currency at the Czech Republic. Whilst some restaurants or shops in the city may have a different set up and are able to return foreign currency, our hotel staff unfortunately does not.

Thank you very much for your understanding and i hope these two minor issues will not refrain you from returning to our beautiful hotel in the future.

Sincerely
Thea Palmer

After having visited several premium hotels in Prague, the Kempinski can definetely be considered as the best!

I highly appreciate the superior treatment by the employees as well as the comfortable rooms. The breakfast includes local organic Czech products and a great choice of cereals! Only the choice of fresh juices could be increaded.

On arrival we were lucky to be upgraded to a suite with a great view. The room, service and staff were impeccable and the location of the hotel was excellent for exploring the fine city of Prague. I'd definitely return to the Kempinski when I go back to Prague.

We booked a double room and due to the fact we were celebrating our anniversary(which I mentioned in an email ahead of time) we were upgraded to a superb suite. The suite was very luxury, service was superb, breakfast was delicious and location very central. Loved it!
