“Excellent location in Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Spent 4 nights at this hotel earlier this month. The hotel arranged a taxi pick up from the airport and also for our return to the airport.

We arrived around 2pm. Registration was quick and friendly and our luggage was brought to the room.

The room was large, with twin beds and a good size bathroom. There was a shower over the bath and my criticism of this is that the bath side to climb in for a shower is high. On the whole the room was clean and tidy although it was evident that the shelving in the unit that housed the fridge had not been dusted recently. Plenty of hanging space for clothing and a safe for valuables, although being at floor level this was not easy to access.

We had breakfast 3 out of the 4 days we were there. On the first morning, a Monday, they did seem to be dis-organised and some items on the buffet had not been replenished. This included cutlery. The other two mornings were fine with a wide choice of food.

We did not otherwise eat at the hotel other than drinks/snacks in the cafe area in the alley adjacent to reception. Service there was at times a little slow.

Overall the hotel was good and an excellent location for the old town with major points of interest being in easy walking distance. Also plenty of restuarants and cafes in the area

All the reviews of this hotel testify to it being a real jewel in the heart of the Old City and our own stay certainly confirms this view. The room was large and the bed was super king sized. You don’t often get such huge beds in city hotels but here you do.
The plastic key card also operates the electricity when you place it in the slot just inside the room. Working the lights did cause us a little confusion at first. It’s not perhaps as obvious as you might think.
The bathroom was delightfully modern and boutique. A rage of free toiletries is provided too. For some strange reason our shower unit had two heads, one fixed and the other adjustable. There were three taps. Controlling the shower also took some working out!
There’s a fully stocked mini bar with just enough room to put your own beverages you purchase more cheaply outside the hotel.
The wall mounted flat screen TV was great and, in our room, we got an excellent wifi signal. No password is required since it’s an entirely open network. There may be times when uploading to Facebook etc. might take a little longer but outside peak hours I didn’t experience problems.

Our own twist is that we stayed here for a full week on half board. I believe only three Jet2 city hotels actually permit this but, once your meals are taken care of you can better budget for all your trips and sight seeing. I’d recommend the half board option here since their entire menu is available with no restrictions giving you three excellent courses to go at. You only pay extra for beverages as you would expect.

It’s nouvelle cuisine with a Czech twist. Not all courses arrived equally hot but everything was really lovely and tasty. Half board perhaps would not immediately spring to mind in a city destination such as Prague when the place is teaming with good restaurants but food bills mount up quickly if you’re eating out each night so going HB is worth considering.

Breakfasts are varied and plentiful. There’s a hot option and someone cooking omelettes fresh. For those who like a good cup of tea, you can get one here by selecting your own tea bags from their extensive range. We love Earl Grey! There’s a good choice of cooked meats and different types of bread in addition to a selection of cereals. You definitely cannot go far wrong here.

Beer is cheap here although wine less so. We opted for their cheapest bottle of Czech white wine with our evening meal which came to just over £10. We also had a large bottle of still water too.

Just a point about exchanging currency. The hotel does NOT do this so you will have to use one of the many exchange booths dotted about all over the place. However, if you Google this topic for Prague you’ll notice many scams have historically been in operation here. The advice is to check very carefully their BUY rate and compare it to their SELL rate. There can be a huge difference in some booths and you could easily be legally ‘robbed’ if you get it wrong. Always ask how many Crowns you will get for the amount of Pounds your are exchanging and only hand over your money when you’re totally happy.

However we seemed to believe that many exchange places are now being more transparent about their rates. We found an excellent one just over the road from Kafka Square.

The staff at this hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. They will do everything they can to ensure your stay is a good one. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend The Barcelo Old Town Prague right across the board. It’s extremely clean, the standard of décor is brilliant and, for a city hotel, the rooms are spacious. The location could not really be any better for the Old Town Square which is the living, beating heart of Prague.

Location is the best in the best. Walking distance to major attractions. Between Old Town Square and Powder Tower (110 meters away). At the end of Celetná st., so less crowds and noises. Another hotel entrance in the back leads to quiet streets and Tyn Church where you can find restaurants and mini-markets.

A nice surprise our room was upgraded to junior corner suit with a view of Tyn Church and the quiet street. the room is huge with high ceilings and comfy beds. Nice front desk staff. The security, David, was helpful and had a light sense of humor. The booking service was responsive and thoughtful.

Room no. and password are not required to connect to Wifi. But Wifi speed is slow. All in all, we are super happy with our choice of staying in this hotel.

Excellent hotel located in the center of Prague's Old Town within walking distance to nearly all tourist attractions of the city. Spacious rooms, with all utilities and more than decent breakfast that fuels you up for a hard tourist day in Prague. The service is very helpful and friendly.

Friendly helpful staff, unpretentious, great breakfast, great bed & shower. Simple but adequate, good value for money and right in the centre of the old town. 100 yds from the Old Town Square and 50 yds from Republic Square. You couldn't ask for a better location as it was far enough away from both squares to be quiet. Can't say much more about it as we were not in it that often over the 5 nights. It's so handy for all the sights and transport.

We had a fantastic weekend stay last week, knowing Prague quite well, the hotel is centrally located, only a 5 minute stroll to the square, with restaurants and shops on you doorstep. We stayed in a duplex junior suite, which was very spacious, with a bathroom and additional w.c. in the upstairs lounge area, which was quite handy! Breakfast excellent, as you will read from others, fresh omelettes etc, although there was no prosseco/sekt at breakfast when we stayed,as others said in their reviews, I like a wee bucks fizz in the morning when on hols, so a bit disappointed at that!! The staff are all very friendly and a cheery welcome on arrival from reception staff, being offered a welcome glass of sparkly was a nice touch too. Had a slight issue on our stay and Javier, the General Manager, sorted it out very quickly, very impressed at his quick response and how he resolved the issue. Have stayed at Barcelo hotels all over Europe, I have to say, this one impressed me the most, Loved it!
