“Expensive is as expensive does”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

I was able to spend four nights at the Four Seasons Prague recently after a three night stay at the Mandarin Oriental. One night was in a Renaissance room and then the other three a few days later in a Deluxe room. The Renaissance rooms look lovely on the website, and for the most part they are. Very high ceilings and lots of space make them seem huge. A few minor criticisms: the air conditioning did nothing for cooling the room or reducing the stale air; the carpets look like they could be replaced; and the noise from the street was noticeable.

When I returned I was booked in the same room type but decided to downgrade in hopes of getting something quieter. Because of low occupancy I was given a deluxe room much closer to the river that was far enough away from the noisy streets that I could sleep even with the windows open. The room was certainly smaller, but it looked much fresher with its 'modern' decor. Both rooms had all the expected luxury amenities.

I had the buffet breakfast one morning for a whopping 750Kc (about $38). It was nice, but it did not include hot entrees which would have put a a breakfast meal near $50. I also had their lunch special, two courses for 390Kc (~$20) that included a fantastic tomato-based seafood soup and two beef cheeks with interesting pureed cauliflower. I also ordered room service daily once I discovered that their regular decaffeinated coffee was far superior to anything else I found in Prague. It was also a very good value - a large pot for a bit more than five bucks.

I didn't have a lot of interaction with the staff, but they were all very professional and they always greeted me by name.

Perhaps the best feature of the hotel for those who want to be right in the middle of the action is its location, about a block north of the Charles Bridge right on the river. The city center in Prague is pretty compact and I was able to walk anywhere I needed to go in about 25 minutes. The downside is that a number of hotel rooms overlook or are close enough to HEAR the action if you are a light sleeper. I agree with other reviewers who say to choose your room with care.

Yes, the Four Seasons Prague is expensive, perhaps more than it should be given it is in a reasonably priced city, but considering the whole experience I'd say it was worth the price (note that I was on a third night free package in the deluxe room). I don't stay at Four Seasons hotels because they are inexpensive but because they always deliver top of the line service. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat if I could get a comparable value - not likely in the busier tourist season.

Room Tip: The closer to the river the less street noise there is

We had great expectations of this upmarket chain of hotels.

On arrival the hotel receptionist showed us to the 7th floor Attic room overlooking the main road and then offered us the same size room with a " beautiful view" of the castle and overlooking the river for another euro 200plus tax a night. I declined! This was a mistake as we were kept awake at night from the revellry in the road below and woken in the morning by the noise of the traffic. Why the hotel cannot invest in double glazing is beyond me!

The hotel which has 160 rooms and I found out was at 15 per cent occupancy. Simple upgrade to a quiet room would have been nice but the management that run the place are not!

This hotel is NOT amazing! The rooms are comfortable albeit small, the breakfast is average to say the least but pay 900 krowns and you can receive a hot meal! The best thing about the hotel is the perfect location but for 400 euros per night there are better hotels to stay albeit you may have a 5 mins additional walk! Overpriced and overrated!

Room Tip: Don't take the first room you are shown. Don't pay for the upgrade and don't book the br...

Dear Russell N,

We thank for taking the time to share your candid feedback with us. We are sincerely sorry that you left our hotel less than satisfied and not to have been given an opportunity to move you to a different room during your stay. We are actually having double glazing in all rooms however being located in the center of town, the traffic noise can affect our most noise sensitive guests. Unfortunately, this is rather difficult for us to resolve, unless we are being made aware of it.
On a different note, thank you for your constructive comments regarding our Continental buffet breakfast. I am pleased to inform you that our Executive Chef is currently in a process of reviewing our buffet, specifically by enhancing the Bohemian corner with more diverse local specialties.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope to welcome you back to Four Seasons in the near future.

It has a great location just next to Charles bridge by the river and within walking distance to the old town. It was the most quite hotel i have ever slept. We upgraded to the river view room on arrival and it worth every penny, the view was amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful with every aspect.

This is without question the most beautiful place to stay in one of the prettiest cities in Europe. The hotel itself is located in a perfect location, around the corner from the Charles Bridge, and within walking distance of the Old Town, the New Town and the Prague Castle area. Normally when we travel we depend on the guide books and google searches for ideas, but at the Four Seasons we found the concierge was extremely helpful in all matters- recommending superb restaurants that were not in the guide books, and excellent concerts. Front desk staff equally helpful and efficient, and all with a smile.
The gym is tiny but adequate (and you will get enough exercise walking- even in the rain- the hotel umbrellas provided ample coverage), and the breakfast delicious. As for rooms, here is where it may get tricky because the hotel has different wings, with rooms of varying charm and views. We were lucky to get rooms in the Classic Wing overlooking the river. Rooms were large, quiet and beautiful. All in all a great place; VERY expensive, but wonderful.

Room Tip: Classic building rooms with a river view are superb.

We extended our River cruise by 2 days to take in more of this beautiful city. The most popular spots we took in with the guided tour so the extra days we wandered on our own, unfortunately the rain dampen the scenery somewhat, but we really enjoyed the city.

This is the most beautiful hotel with fantastic service. Every need is met with friendly efficiency and we even had snow!

The location is fantastic, just 2 minutes from the beautiful Charles Bridge and the old town square is a short walk away.

Stayed for four nights over the Christmas holiday and had a great stay. Mostly positive reviews and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone:

+front desk staff was superbly helpful and professional (some of the best ever)
+perfect location on the river in Old Town
+nice decor, especially in the lobby and hallways

+/-CottoCrudo was pretty but not mind-blowing
+/-the room was large but plainer than other FS locations we've stayed at
+/-tiny but adequate gym

-a bit loud if you get a room with a window to the side street (frequent garbage truck pickups)
