Hotel Ambassador - Zlata husa
Ranked #344 of 648 Hotels in Prague
Reviewed 21 November 2009

Arriving at the Hotel Ambassador-Zlata Husa was a culture shock in reverse. Expecting Wenceslas Square to be an old-fashioned Bohemian cultural centre as depicted in travel brochures and on some postcards, we were confronted with a shabby half-finished cosmopolitan conglomeration of all the worst of Western Culture. On one side of this hotel there stands that old Czech stalwart, MacDonalds, on the other side is a building site. THe old dowager that was Prague can be seen only in the architecture above the modern retail facades which represent downtown Las Vegas more than the pride of Eastern Europe.
The Hotel is a large reasonable quality establishment which probably is deserving of 3 to 4 stars by British standards . The breakfast room is of a large self-service canteen style, and provides a decent quality and excellent variety of fare. The 'extra' facilities provided by The Ambassador (Casino/Nightclub/Thai Massage) seem to be mainly used by non-residents dragged in by hotel-employed touts on the street. We were upgraded free of charge to a junior suite which was mercifully situated at the quieter back of the building. Our view was of the building Site. The room was large, clean and well furnished in an imitation baroque style. The hotel bar is an over-priced tourist trap The cost of 500ml Pilsner Urquell was E150 in the front bar. In decent bar/restaurants within 10 minutes walk, the same beer can be purchased for between E25 to E40.
Given enough time (we were there for 7 nights), the real Prague can be found. Using the excellent public transport and heading away from the multi-cultural Wenceslas and Old Town Squares, the remains of the Bohemian city are delightful. If you have never been, I would recommend a few days in Prague, if only to see what happens to ancient and special cities when they are subjected first to over-bearing communism and then opened to rampant capitalism.

-from a five star hotel at least!
took my girlfriend for her birthday, wanted to book a really nice hotel for a romantic weekend,so, 5 star was the only way to go.. when we arrived, receptionist was o.k,basic level of courtesy, no being shown to our room though.. the room was basic, certainly not the superior double that i booked and payed extra for, fittings in bathroom were in poor condition,leaky towel radiator,broken bin,small points,but not acceptable in 5 star..as was the cleanliness, relics of the last few guests were in clear evidence under the bed and behind desk!.., safe in the room locked us out, it was some time after a rather abrupt call to reception(as he would send someone when he had finished his check ins)that this was rectified.. all in all just not 5 star standard... prague was fantastic ,location was great ,just a shame about the hotel which in my honest opinion is 3 star at best...possibly our opinions were clouded as we had stayed the previous night in a 4 star hilton in luton, which was immaculate,and above fault for both service and quality ?

For a 5* Hotel the beds were surprisingly uncomfortable - unless you like a hard bed - but that's the only down side. The rooms are very large but, unfortunately, the air conditioning didn't work and the spa bath tended to spill over when full on. The breakfast is extensive and the meals are good. The staf were friendly and helpful.
The Hotel is located on the main square from which you can visit most attractions on foot. Prague is quite expensive but some of the bars,etc., off the main areas were more in line with UK prices. We found a very welcoming restaurent called the Camel Bar just behind the main old town square and only a 5 min walk from the hotel.

Stayed there for 5 nights in July. It has 5 stars to it's name but that's about it.
The furniture, carpets, elevators etc were really outdated, the rooms were less sound proof than a cardboard box and the attitude and service from the staff were appalling (for example, once I asked for a Metro map in the service desk, she looked at me, rolled her eyes, sighed, got the map and slammed it on the desk).
But there were also good things, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom recently furnished and the hotel was in a great location.
One last note - don't buy anything at the hotel bar. For example, we were told that a fair price for a beer in Prague was around 30 czk, we were in an expensive neighbourhood so a beer in restaurants around us was usually around 60-70 czk, but in the hotel bar it cost 150 czk.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July. We find the location extremely convenient. It is in the centre of Wenceslas Square of new town. 5 mins walk to old town square and 15 mins walk to Charles bridge. Take bus no.119 from airport and get off at final stop (About 30 mins). You will see metro right besides you. Then 4 stops metro to mustek (about 5 mins). Then about 2 mins walk, you'll see the hotel. Hotel has bath robe and slippers. Jacuzzi is not big but very comfy for one. It is not top range 5 star hotel but definitely should be good enough as a top 4 star. M & S supermarket is only 2 mins walk from the hotel. If you go there, definitely try that little street stall outside hotel for its hotdog and 13% beer. They are Ace!
