We stayed at the Alqush in early Sept. 2013 and were very pleased at the value and service we received. we arrived a little tired from an early morning flight but were happy to rest in a pretty room with a balcony overlooking the street. location was good perhaps 5minutes to IP Pavlova metro stn. 15 min's to Wenceslas square. the room was large and well furnished, shower and bathroom were more than adequate. and we enjoyed the garden terrace, pretty and serene. Breakfast buffet was excellent! Plenty of variety with Eggs and choice of bacon or sausage, several salads, pastries and well stocked cereal, dry fruit bar. The staff down in the breakfast area are constantly replenishing the food and coffee etc. clearing plates and bussing tables. Two computers in the lobbly are available to guests and the girls at the desk polite and helpful.

Alqush Downtown Hotel is a well-planned and well-executed mid-range hotel. It is clean and well-maintained, its Art Nouveau style is not over-the-top, and it is staffed with competent and friendly people. The location is fair, and the price even more attractive. It is a very reasonable choice for sightseers who do not wish to splurge on lodging.

Alqush Downtown Hotel is located on Legerova, a major thoroughfare, and about 400m south of I. P. Pavlova metro line C station. This I. P. Pavlova station is two metro stop away from Hlavní nádraží (main train station) and one stop away from Muzeum station, where you can get off to Václavské náměstí (Wenceslas Square) or transfer to metro line A for most sights of interest in Prague. Connection to the Vaclav Havel Airport (PRG) is also relatively easy, since bus line 119 connects the Airport and Dejvická, the northern terminus of the said metro line A. Also there is an airport express bus line (AE) that goes back and forth between the airport and the main train station (the AE also stops at Dejvická). We’d like to note that it is better to get off on the western exit at I. P. Pavlova station then walk along the west side of Legerova to reach the hotel, as there are no pedestrian crossing near the hotel (though there is an underground passage on Koubkova a little to the north). There is a mid-sized mart on the west side of Legerova, close to I. P. Pavlova, good for stocking up on water and snacks.

This hotel, along with its sister Amigo City Centre Hotel right next to it, is run by a corporation. Apparently the management knows what it is doing; the hotel offers most services that are expected from decent chain hotels, and are actually better than most at comparable price range. All the front desk staffs we met were cordial and efficient. Housekeeping is also above average. Most noteworthy were the ladies serving breakfast – they were not only efficient but were genuinely caring and friendly. After a couple of mornings they remembered us and began to pay extra attention to us, wearing genuine smile that is seldom seen in chain hotels. The breakfast itself has fair selection, and offers three or four bread types that change daily.

The hotel room is fairly spacious and, surprisingly, quieter than expected, given its location on a major road. The building must be well-insulated, as our room was quite warm and comfortable without heating turned on. The bathroom was clean and in perfect working order. One thing to remember is that, unlike chain hotels, they do charge for the coffee in the room.

To summarize, Alqush Downtown Hotel is very good at most everything to be expected from a decent mid-range hotel. Its location may not be ideal, but still is convenient enough for any activity in Prague. The proximity to Hlavní nádraží makes day trips easy as well. The hotel offers standardized and efficient service, and the staffs are very friendly. All these come at an attractive rate. We do recommend this pleasant hotel to any budget-conscious sightseeing travelers looking for well-rounded lodging in Prague.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for choosing Alqush Downtown Hotel **** for your stay in Prague. It makes us really happy that you provided other traveler with such a detailed review, and that you enjoyed your stay with us and were satisfied with the accommodation, interior design, breakfast and our helpful staff. I am glad that some guests do realize what the differences between smaller local hotels and big famous chains are and that based on that comparison, they choose to stay in a local hotel. It is definitely not only about the huge price difference and the culture, but one definitely gets much more personal services and feeling of being at home once they stay in a family hotel like ours as you described in your review. Thank you for your review!!
Best Regards
Your Hotel Team

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, very good location, wonderful rooms and awesome breakfast. The price was just unbelievably low for this room (to be honest I didn't expect much for this price at this location). For my next visit in Prague, I will definitely try to find a room in this hotel.

Hotel is located ca 5 min walk from Pavlova Station ( Metro and Tram, also the 22 ). Our room was very clean, not too small. The staff were all very nice and helpful. There is a small covered terrace to the back of the building, where you can enjoy breakfast al fresco, if you don't mind carrying your plate out.
Downside: our room faced a main road, so earplugs were a must.
Alqush is now a smokefree hotel.

I really like hotels that are not too big and that are placed in beautiful historical buildings. Well, this one was definitely it. We were a bit surprised to find out it's located on a main four lane road but thankfully our room faced the interior yard and was absolutely quiet (except for the occasional noise from the elevator right next to our room). The decor is nice, the room is huge and the breakfast was fine as well. To get to the historical center you either take the metro, which is close, or you walk, it was a comfortable, half an hour stroll.
The only downside was the paid coffee and tea in the room. Seriously, never heard of this throughout Europe, you either have coffee service in your room or you don't but not that you are offered one but asked to pay like for the mini bar.
If you're local, you may find it strange that one of the receptionists will only speak to you in English despite being Czech herself. Why, we really didn't understand, but the other receptionist was fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the interior yard.

Dear Nina,
It was a pleasure reading your detailed review, I am sure many Trip Advisor users will appreciate it. We are happy that you are one of the guests who leave with an unforgettable impression and will come back one day, we will be looking forward to that. Taking into consideration the attractive prices of accommodation in a top 4* hotel, we do not have mini-bar and coffee/tea complimentary; however, anyone can definitely enjoy it at an affordable price if they want to. Regarding your comment of English speaking receptionists, I suppose she didn’t know you spoke Czech/Slovakian as well, otherwise she would definitely speak Czech to you since we do not have any restrictions on that for our hotel personnel. Once you know when you will be coming, please contact us directly so we provide you with our best offer for regular guests.
Have a nice day!

We booked 2 double rooms for 4 nights in Alquish Downtown Hotel. The hotel is very good located. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from metro (I.P.Pavlova). However, it is also easy to reach Museum and Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí) by foot. It took around 10 - 15 minutes. The staff was very friendly, they answered all our questions. As we had late arrival, they recommended good restaurants and bars nearby. They also highlighted main city sights on the map as well as provided us with a 24 hours transport card and helped with currency exchange. The breakfast was included into the room price and was good. Finally, the price for the room was really reasonable. I definitely recommend this hotel.
