Barcelo Old Town Praha
Ranked #89 of 649 Hotels in Prague
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 May 2010

The Barcelo is in the Old Town district of the City very close the Town Square, it is within easy walking distance of all the major attractions but in a quiet location.
The hotel is in a picturesque old building but has only recently been very tastefully converted into this modest boutique hotel. The staff were all very friendly . Our visit coincided with the first 'volcanic ash' incident and the staff could not have been more helpful towards the many stranded guests.
The complimentary breakfasts were of a better than average standard. I emphasise complimentary because we actually paid extra when it appears to have been free, so check when booking.
The rooms were to a very good standard, our 'Junior Suite' with its separate sitting and TV area was particularly nice and housekeeping always kept it clean and tidy.
Prague has so many places to visit there are too many to list but do walk over the Charles Bridge and explore Mala Strana and beyond up to the Castle.
There are also numerous places to eat and drink but be aware that you will pay a lot more in tourist areas such as the Old Town Square than you will if you walk a few extra yards down the side streets. For example a couple of hundred yards from the Barcelo is a small restaurant bar called Amigo, the food is excellent and very reasonably priced.
Similarly if in Wenceslas Square go into the Lucerna shopping arcade and go upstairs, passing under the upside down horse (you will see what I mean when you get there!) to the Lantern Cinema bar, great location and very cheap. Then nip up Stepanska past the Radisson and turn right and follow the signs to 'Jama' another excellent little eatery.
Prague is famous for its beer and the Pivovarsky Dum is a must visit micro brewery pub which also serves great food. It is a little out of the way but easy to get to by tram and is featured in all good guide books.
The Golden Rules for Prague are wear good walking shoes and don't be afraid to use the public transport, explore and even get lost a little, there are plenty of bars to mull over your map in!

We organised a mini conference for approx. 30 people and can only recommend this hotel. The staff went out of their way to make it run as smooth as possible, was extremely friendly and helpful. The conference facilities were outstanding and the rooms were what you would expect from a 5* hotel. Breakfast and buffet lunch could not be faulted. Hotel is located right in the heart of the old town, within walking distance of all the hot spots. We have no hesitation to recommend this hotel for any occasion!

The hotel is just a minute walk from Old Town square so couldn’t really be in a better location. The staff were brilliant and completely looked after us. As it was my 30th Birthday they upgraded us to a gorgeous junior deluxe suite. The suite was large with a corridor which opened into a room with a huge bed and seating area. The room faced the street but we could hear no noise from outside.

We arrived at the hotel slightly early and were offered a glass of sparkling wine and they very quickly made the room available for us. The receptionist was also helpful giving us city guides etc.

Breakfast was continental/buffet style with a good choice.

The hotel is modern and an ideal base for a trip to Prague.

perfect location, right at the edge of Old Town. All sight within walkin distance. But very quiet rooms. No noise from the streets.
Newly refurbished rooms with modern furniture and very modern bath. We were lucky and got a nice big double room with spacious living room area. Great breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, meat cheese, eggs etc. and a Nespresso Coffee Machine for perfect coffee! Service was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for four nights. The hotel is in an excellent location for exploring the beautiful city of Prague. Would certainly recommend this hotel and found the room we had to be spacious and very clean. Only downside was the bedside lights seem to have gone missing! When we asked reception about this we were told that some rooms do not come with them!! So if you like to read in bed...make sure your room comes with a light! The air conditioning was a bit hit and miss, and the room was fairly warm... it was in the 70's on one of the days during our stay. Other than this the hotel is a good choice and would stay here again.

We found the breakfast to be good, with plenty of choice, with a Nespresso coffee machine....so at least you know it's made freshly.

Having stayed in Barcelo Hotels a number of times - very disappointed with this one. The hotel was as expected and while we tried to get an upgrade none available - no problem. Nice glass of wine on arrival - good point. Looked to get a coffee at the reception - machine which takes 40 CZK - bad point. Looked for change - no can do - "use the ATM machine!!." alternatively go to the bar and pay a lot more!!. Breakfast was freezing cold. - bad point. Waitress was apologetic and did bring a warm one- good point. Fire Alarm goes off at 6.30am on Sunday morning!! - Bad point. No one in control - no announcements to say everything is ok - go back to your room. Bad Point. Looked for a drink from the bar at 11.55pm - "No- Bar closed" - OK can you recommend somewhere nearby?" "No - I don't know!". Needed to send a post card to our daughter in Australia- 20CZK for the stamp !!! Not willing to say "Sure we can do this as part of our service!" - Overall service was very poor. Hotel was well maintained but staff need training in customer relations and services. Would I stay again - NO!
