“A lot to complain about BUT I still recommend this Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

First of all the overall feel this place resonates would lead me to recommend the Hotel. However, the devil is in the detail and that detail was rather disappointing at large.
With my friends in one room and myself and family in another (including infant) we all found the rooms to be noisy, whether that’s by the breakfast crowd in the morning. Breakfast is served on the same level as the “executive rooms” we booked. Or nearby construction from outside. We were not hindered by the trams.

The worse incident of our 9 night stay was the extremely rude neighboring guests. Two French women who on Friday and Saturday night, didn’t bother to actually go out in a nearby bar or club, but instead decided to get drunk both evenings in their room, sing and dance, till 3am. Being a weekend evening, we were quiet tolerant to 12m but after that, infant or not, we were as reasonable as anyone would be. The Hotel reception did not do a thing, such as talking to the guests which I thought is a reasonable thing to do. On the second evening of their partying at 12am, reception said they could move us rather than tackle the issue, which we declined as we were already in the executive rooms (best rooms) and we had unpacked, had an infant and it was 12am in the morning. Why not ask our neighbors to keep the noise down?

Anyway, moving on both rooms tended to be stinking hot and we could only open the windows to alleviate the humidity. There is no hair shampoo – just Dove Body wash.

Last negative is that it is pretty far out of town and slightly uphill. It’s not just across the water but some considerable distance. There are two tram lines (8 and 26) which go past the hotel and directly to the city. 50m away down the hill from the hotel is a stop which is between the Metro (Vitavska) and the hotel is extremely well serviced, we used this a lot.

We all thought the breakfast which was included, was terrible included sugar heavy juice, too sweet to drink. Eatable, but with Prague so affordable – could have easily skipped and eaten out.

Now saying all this, I am still going to recommend this Hotel! Am I crazy, no, just a realist who was extremely happy with the overall experience. The executive rooms and bathroom were large, and comfy. Everything else more than satisfactory including the friendliness of the day staff. Staff spoke clear Czech, English and Russian. Their directions to anywhere was “hopeless” and you were better off researching tram stops yourself. The Wifi was fine in the lobby/bar area and we could have excellent Skype chats back home.

Once we got use to the trams, travelling to and from the City was fine and even with a pram (stroller or push chair). The Czech locals were really nice helping us with the pram and somehow always made room in a packed tram.

Relative to other Hotels in Prague, the Belvedere was extremely affordable and they even let us pay after our stay. TV was adequate

Though I detailed my complaints, if you take away the rudeness of some other guests – and give the hotel the benefit of the doubt, it was an excellent stay.

Funny story : There is a true local smoke filled bar across the road. They don’t serve anything but Pils beer, no wine or spirits. I had a good laugh with the locals when I sat down at their table and tried to get anything but Pils. Yeah the beer is cheaper than bottled water – not kidding!

Room Tip: Executive Rooms are on the breakfast level = noisy mornings.

Nice, quiet place, located just 3 train stations away from the Old Town Square. Clean and comfortable and with a good exchange rate with zero commision. The breakfast buffet was also quite nice. We would definitely stay there again.

Overall the hotel is quite good however it is not clear why it is a four stars hotel. The good things are: attentive and helpful reception, decent breakfast, room cleaning service is quite good as well. In my room it was not noisy. I did not suffered from the trams noise or any other noise. The bad things: quite far from the center to go on foot, no free wifi in the room and the signal of the free wifi in the lobby is very weak.

Everything is quite good, but there are some small things that stops me from saying that it is the real 4 stars hotel.

- no toothpaste
- no slippers
- very noisy (our windows were looking at the tram line) even with closed window
- no free Wi-Fi in the room - only at hall
- got 3 single bads room inspite of 1 double

And the good things also:

- quite clean
- price
- close to city transport lines (tram, metro)
- 5 min walk to Potrafena Husa - nice place to eat and have a drink if you are tire to go to the center
- friendly personnel (mostly russian-speaking)
- quality breakfast

Good place. 20 min walk to downtown or 5 minutes with the tramway which has a stop 50 meters from the hotel. However, the hotel is very noisy: trams, bus, and every noise from the other rooms or the corridor...

Good and clean room facing the back yard, so no noise from the busy street. Nice beds. Friendly and helpful staff. Shower in bathtub with no curtain, so bathroom floor gets quite wet. Breakfast is tolerable, but real juices would be much better, and the coffee could be a lot stronger.

We chose it for the location near a venue we attended. Communications is excellent woth lots of tram lines available.

First of all, I have to mention that the front desk staff was very helpful - we had made a mistake in our booking (the dates were off by one day) and they managed to find us a nice room, for the dates we actually wanted, and the rate was better than on our original booking.

Our room was quite spacious even for three people, and very clean. As it seemed to be a wheelchair accessible room, the shower and bath tub were apparently set up for sit-down showers. Awkward if you're used to showering standing up. There was also no shower curtain of any kind, so one had to be careful about not getting the whole room wet. Since there was no air conditioning, the room got quite warm at night, even with the window open. And finally, I couldn't find any free power outlets in the room. I had to move a table and unplug a lamp to charge my phone.

Breakfast was served in a spacious room on the first floor. The food was unimpressive, but at least the scrambled eggs seemed to be made of real eggs instead of powdered ones, which seems to be rare these days.

There is wifi in the lobby, but I couldn't get it to work in the bar area. No wifi in the rooms.

Overall this was decent value for money and I'd consider staying here again.
