“Very nice place”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

For a first look it is strange location for a hotel, but later that is one of the hotel advantages (quiet neighborhood). Nice and big rooms and bathrooms. You should take tickets to the zoo from the hotel, if you want to avoid crowds before entering to the zoo. Meals are good, staff very nice and helpful. You can use transfer to the metro station, so after 15 minutes you can visit centre of the Prague without parking problem.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lots of facilities to make use of. They drop off and pick up to the Tram stop and I wanted to go somewhere else and they said they would do that for me too. Very nice breakfast with lots of options. Clean rooms with heaps of space and air con which was a blessing when it was +30degrees outside. Wifi worked everywhere in the hotel as well. Out of the city but tram only takes 15 minutes and you are right in the city centre.
Really enjoyed my stay :)

When you drive up to the hotel you start to wonder but when you arrive at the gate everything looks great. Everybody was very friendly and helpful and spoke adequate to very good English. The room (air-conditioning) and bathroom (separate toilet) where very spacious and clean enough. The breakfast was varied of an average standard, maybe rather 3 than 4-star. The shuttle to public transport or the Troja-attractions is very convenient and you can get tickets at reception. They have off-road parking and it really is great value for money. We would definitely stay here again on a next visit.

I recently spent a week at the hotel and had a great time. I found the hotel very nice and a spectacular deal. The staff were always very accommodating and extremely helpful, whether with their courtesy pick-ups/drop-offs at the local tram stop or metro stop, having mass transit tickets available for when you head out, finding a restaurant we didn't have the address for, or providing other random answers.

We had a double room, which was quite large by most European rooms I'd ever stayed in, however maintaining the standard pressed together double bed arrangement. Each bed still had it's own blanket too. This could be a benefit if the person sharing your bed tends to use more than their half of a bedspread. There were no extra pillows/blankets in the room but I'm sure the staff would accommodate if you asked. I would say the general decoration of the hotel is clean, feeling of higher end Ikea.

Mini-fridge was stocked with beverages and a couple snacks with prices prominently indicated. They appeared to be sticker price and not raised to excessive levels.

We ate dinner twice at the hotel, and had coffee/drinks on two other afternoons. Each meal was very good and equally well priced. My first was a really memorable confit of rabbit, with a parsnip mash. Never having rabbit this way before I was really, really, pleased with the sheer succulence of the meat, as well as the intense flavor of it, reminding me of what I wished a Thanksgiving turkey actually tasted like. When I ordered it the waitress informed me that was a common Czech dish-which I confirmed later throughout the week after seeing it or a version of it, on many other menus.

To note, the hotel is not at all in or near the city center. It isn't even a quick walk from the pretty excellent mass transit available in Prague. It is in a purely residential area on the periphery of Prague. They are about 5 minutes or less from a tram stop which will have you in Old Town in less than 15 minutes. Getting back at the end of the night was always more complicated, we were usually looking for the #17 tram, and occasionally misread the schedule, having to transfer at a stop or backtrack. The front desk is occupied 24hrs a day and was able to resolve any doubts though-even picking us up a little after their 2300 cut-off time.

There is parking for the hotel if you rent a car at some point, like I did. They also have free WiFi-though I didn't use it not having a computer on my trip.

The hotel appears very child friendly and over the course of our week we noticed most occupants were families.

The quietness of the outer circle of Prague combined with an excellent shuttleservice to nearest tram- and metrostation or zoo. Clean swimmingpool and we had a large familyroom for two adults en two kids, large tv and three windows with a view over the garden. With sauna, small whirlpool with music!, bowling, children playroom, good food and friendly service. Very good for families with kids.

We stayed for a couple of nights at the hotel and it was a very welcome change from the norm. The reception was personal and informative with a true sense for customer care. The rooms are large and well appointed and very comfortable with access to a pool and hot tub on the lower floors. Breakfast and dinner, If you eat there, are in a seperate area from the hotel but it is joined by an internal corridor. We suspect that the catering may be leased out as the breakfast was OK but did not really match the standard of the hotel. The variety was limited and the hot was often just warm where it was not been topped up freshly or regularly. That apart, the hotel is great. They offer you a complimentary shuttle service to the nearest tram station and collection as well. All you need to do is phone the hotel from the tram station. The reality is that it is really a nice walk once you have your bearings as the walk goes along the river.The tram ride into Prague is easy and frequent and all part of the experience of Prague. Definitely worth staying here if you want something different from the normal business hotel. The on site parking is a real bonus. Do not miss out on going to Karlstejn Castle A real gem.

Room Tip: There is plenty of space to relax in the rooms so take a bottle of wine and an opener!

In our travels, it is seldom that you stumble on a hotel that: 1) customer service and hospitality are truly first and genuine 2) You feel at home even when the home and the home is both chic and classy 3) You are presented excellent value for money. Castle Residence is without a doubt an excellent hotel, one that I can't just say enough good things about. The staff is sincere, professional and go out of their way to insure you are treated with five star hospitality when you are paying substantially less. This is one of those hotels that you will be reading about in Conde Nast or some other well heeled travel magazine that will be touting it as a must to stay at. While you won't find door men and superfluous staff, what you get in return is a visit to a hotel where the rooms are nicely appointed, common areas that make you feel like you are visiting a part of the past, a restaurant that is good value for money and sense that you are in your house and not a hotel. This is definitely not some cookie cutter hotel or high brow bed-n-breakfast where customer service comes second. While you are in Prague (East Side by the Zoo) you are close enough to everything because of the shuttle that Hotel provides to a near by Tram Stop. If you want to try something different, try this hotel, you won't be sorry.
