Kings Court is a lovely hotel, which does what it says on the tin … delivers a 5 star product. We booked a deluxe room through BA and were delighted with our quiet 7th floor room overlooking Republic Square. It did have restricted headroom over by the windows, but this just gave it more character, in our opinion. It was a 25 sq metre room – plenty big enough for a 3 night stay. We could have upgraded to an executive room. This offers a more regularly shaped room (but of the same size) with free drinks/snacks and spa entry. It might work for some, but we spent most of our time sightseeing in this beautiful city and trying out the typical Prague restaurants and cafes and just sleeping in the hotel room.
Our bathroom was equally spacious and boasted a separate large walk in shower as well as a full size bath. All too often we see problems in “5 star” hotel rooms, but here the décor was immaculate, with perfectly clean carpets and as-new grouting in the bathroom.
Another major plus for this hotel is its location, a 5 to 10 minute stroll from Old Town Square. It is also right by the Republic Square metro on the yellow line. While taxis are inexpensive – and indeed we used a pre-arranged taxi from the airport to the hotel – they would find it difficult to compete with the metro/119 bus combo, which gets you to the airport in 30 to 45 minutes for 32 Kc per person, plus 16 Kc for each case, that's £2.50 for two people plus one case, a bargain! We also used the metro for our trip to Prague State Opera – a 15 minute journey with one change. Ideal when you've spent the day walking around Prague Castle. A 24 hour ticket covering all public transport in Prague is a very reasonable £3.40.
The breakfast choice in the Kings Court is the best we have ever encountered in Continental Europe – fresh fruit, cereals, cold cuts, smoked fish and a hot buffet with freshly prepared scrambled eggs. There was even an omelette/pancake station. The pasty selection was superb, and the availability of glasses of Sekt was a nice touch. The only minor problem was the assumption, made commonly in many European countries, that tea can be made with warm (not boiling) water. For convenience the waiters pour boiling water into pots and let it stand until someone orders tea. The problem was easily solved by pouring boiling water direct into a cup. While the restaurant was usually busy, we were always seated quickly in either the main dining room or the conservatory overlooking the square.
Service at the Kings Court was excellent, with very friendly reception and waiting staff keen to help. All in all it was a great choice for our mini break.
