Reviewed 17 October 2008

My husband and I recently stayed at the Grand Hotel Bohemia for our anniversary weekend and it really couldn’t have been more perfect. We were welcomed by friendly employees who made us feel as though we were the only guests there! They were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely – very clean and comfortable – and the hotel itself was a great base for exploring the city. We had a fantastic weekend. We would definitely return to the hotel and recommend it to anyone looking for a world class service and place that makes you feel extremely special in every way. Thank you to the reception staff who organised my secret beautiful flowers. I have booked a room with you in December for my business trip and I am really looking forward to my time in Prague and to the delicious food from your kitchen. Best wishes, your very satisfied client

This is a really nice hotel in Stare Mesto with some small flaws. It lies close to shopping and alot of historical places of interest and is hence a good choise if You want to be close to the center of things.

Me and my fiancee spent a few nights here. We arrived by taxi from the airport. The company we used was AAA, the only somewhat reliable company according to all natives I've spoken to. We paid almost exactly 550Kcs each way.

The lobby is, as the rest of the hotel, very nice and decorative and it shows someone has a good sense of taste. We where welcomed by a very nice young woman how gave us all the information we needed about our room, breakfasttimes etc. After the formalia was cleared we took the elevator to our room. The room was very nice as well with all the things you can expect from a hotel of this dignity. The bed was just perfectly hard/soft with huge pillows. All the items where in excellent condition. There was a wellfilled, albeit very pricy (5 euros for a small bottle of coke) minibar. I was abit unimpressed by the selection of englishspeaking channels on the tv thou. BBC World, CNN, CNBC, Eurosport and National Geographic together with a number of German, French and Italian channels (and the compulsory pay-for-porn chans). Oh well, we didn't come to watch tv, but still.

There was a folder with info about the hotel, it's history, restaurant menu and various services both free and pay ditos. Filling and informative. In the closet there was a safebox, shoehorn, shoebrush etc. The bathroom was amongst the top three hotel bathrooms I've encountered in recent years. A nice marble sink, a long deep bathtub and the things you can expect in form of bathrobes, shampoo, blowdryer, scale etc. If there was something to complain about that would be that the glass door on the side of the tub that was meant to keep the floor dry when you took a shower had little effect. Sure, the water didn't spray all over the bathroom, but since there was a 10mm gap between the tub and the door the water poured down the door, under it and then down on the floor, as my unsuspicious socks noticed just after I'd dried myself after the first shower. This wasn't a big deal thou once you where aware of it but still a nuseance.

Those of you who have read my other reviews (yes I know there aren't so many but I' lazy and seldom take the time to write) know that I'm somewhat of a cleaning fascist. So how do I judge this hotel you ask. Well, I answer, I'm torn. I was impressed with the firsthand look. Everything looks and feel fresh and clean and I was immensly impressed with the fact that the airintake in the bathroom was spotless, even cleaner than my own! Kudos for that.

However during the stay some cracks in the perfect wall emerged. When taking my first bath I noticed a crack in the ceiling paint. This is no biggie since that happens and one can't paint the room every day. Still annoying thou. More interesting was that I found a simcard on the middle of the floor, in plain view from the door when I entered. I also found some candypaper behind the dustbin in the bathroom. These could of course have come off a mop or vacuum as the cleaner left the room but still. The second day I was alittle amazed that so much care was taken to making up my room, hanging up new towels, making my bed etc but nothing was done to just clean out the tub. A simple shower would have done. The third day my wastebasket hadn't been emptied. These are all minor things but together show a trend. The use of a fillinform for the different areas in the rooms could be an idea, like "emptied wastebin under desk, check". I must still say that I was sufficiently pleased with the way the room was cleaned.

Now, the staff.. I seldom meet the cleaner but did so twice this time and she was very nice, smiled and greeted me both times. I have nothing bad to say about the guys at the reception. They where all very serviceminded and alert whenever me or my fiancee communicated with them. The same goes for the young woman who checked us in. There was one woman thou that for the first three days basically ignored us whenever we came in through the door. Most of the time she heard the door and peeked up from her computer and then looked down again, just giving us a short greeting once. My fiancee also had an experience when she verbally hounded two old italian ladies because they had the audacity to ask for something from their car. Also the piccolo/doorman whatever one choose to define him as was just physically present. For the entire stay he looked extremely bored and it seemed like he just wished he could be anywhere but at his job. I didnt quite get what he did because he walked the lobby but never opened the doors. I saw him clean a small part of the window with a cloth once and thats about as much presence that he seemed to muster. There are a few persons that really need to get a course in how to smile at the guests that ultimatly pays their salaries.

For a hotel that's supposed to be 5 stars everything has to be perfect. It's not enough to have nice rooms and a good restaurant (or a bar that allowed smoking which I love together with a nice cognac). The staff must be interested in the guest and take care of their needs, housekeeping can't afford to slip up once, let alone twice, my socks should be dry, despite me having taken a shower just earlier. When I arrived I had no expectation on what the hotel would be like. I've been to 5 star hotels that where utterly horrible and I've been to B&B's where You would be treated like a king. In that regard the hotel gave me a positive surprise and gets a 4 since I always expect the worst at a new hotel. To get a 5 there has to be some corrections thou.

All in all this is not a bad choise if You´re into these kind of hotels. I can't say that I belive there aren't better 5 star or ever 4 star hotels in Prague but it's allthesame alright and I would have no problem of returning here (even thou I'm curious and probably will try another hotel next time).

My husband and I stayed at Grand Hotel Bohemia for three nights during our honeymoon and enjoyed it immensely. When we called to inform them we would be arriving at 7 am to ask if we could store our luggage there, they went above and beyond by having a room ready for us. The room was very small (the only downside) but it fit a large, very comfortable bed, and also had a huge terrace (more of a deck, really) attached. The bathroom was large and very nice, the entire hotel was lovely, and they accommodated our Sabbath requests. The location was pleasant as well--very close to major landmarks but quiet as well. The computer with free internet was a nice and helpful touch.

The Grand Bohemia is definately worth a visit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The lobby and restaurant are decorated with antique furniture, fresh flowers and ornament seelings. My only complaint is the extremely small room I got. The newly renovated room was with new furniture, new bathroom and flatscreen, but just way too small. The breakfast is ok, and the location perfect!

I booked this hotel because it is close to the clementinum (music hall). I was pleased with the room which was perfectly decorated and pretty recentlz renovated as it appeared. It was also very positive that the hotel wasnt crowed which i do not like at all. Breakfast was as it should be with a 5star hotel.
Only setback was internet rate which is about 45 USD per 24 hours and not even WLAN but via cable. This little detail did however not mean much to me after all. Would and will definitely return to this nice and charming hotel.

My wife and I got married at St Nicholas Church in the Old Town Square in Prague in late April 08. We had our reception in the beautiful Boccacio Ballroom at the Grand Hotel Bohemia.... a truly historic and stunning venue (just take a look at the photo on their website!).
A number of the guests also stayed at the hotel with us in the week leading up to the wedding, and everyone had the same experience of the hotel.... Excellent. The hotel itself is perfectly positioned just behind the Old Town Square, it is a wonderfully historic building and the rooms have been recently renovated but still retain real character. Beds are really comfy too with firm mattresses. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our stay which really helped with so much to do in the run up to the big day. The reception itself went so smoothly thanks to the attentive staff, and the food served was excellent, even for over 60 guests!
Can't say enough about the Hotel, staff etc and our whole experience there....look forward to going back really soon.

When we arrived in Prague to see Czech friends, we had booked at Seven Angels, but found it lacking. so eventually found this one.
Such a clean and friendly and professional hotel with wonderful
expensive beds, linen etc. the bathreoom was so good and up to date fittings unlike some others at same price.
The reception staff were helpful. they even laid a table in reception one night for our 4 friends to play a serious game of cards for 3 hours.
Recommend this hotel as truly 5 star.
