“great hotel”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We had really great time in Hotel Merkur. Perfect service, good price, taste food. We were worried about the hotel localisation but the distance to the old town with major attraction was fine (15 min walk).

The location is very convenient to shopping, dining, and the primary Prague attractions like the Old Town Square. Staff was nice and their English is good. Breakfast was pretty good. Room was okay -- mostly clean (with the exception of the carpet which really needs to be replaced). Biggest issue was the lack of air conditioning. Makes it really tough to get a good night's sleep.

Very nice hotel, excellent location, attentive staff and service above expectation. After we arrived in the hotel we had a great luncheon in the NEW LIMIT hotel restaurant ALL YOU CAN EAT at EUR 5.00 per person only. Wide range of fresh salads, home-made soup, typical Czech dumplings with goulash delicious desserts. All just perfect.........

Over the years I have stayed in a number of hotels in various European cities but when I am in Prague I always choose Hotel Merkur. Its clean, reasonably priced, and wonderful staff. They helped me feel right at home. They directed me and my friends to the best restuarant and bars in town so we didn't miss out on any night life. They also gave us some wonderful tips for places to go that are away from the usual tourist track. Will defiantly return!

We arrived late in the evening, on the night before the flight back home, from great vacation in Austria and Germany.
First we discovered that someone decided that .4 beds are enough for a room that was booked for couple + 3 (youngest has 6 years old)
But this was not the worst, we went into the room, which was full of mosquitoes, hundreds if not thousands!
The receptionist had an immediate, answer, "I have an excellent spray" she said!
See the pictures of our bed after spraying ...
Of course we had to leave the room, and look for another hotel in the middle of the night with our kids, since the hotel didn't have other solution to offer.
The hotel was prepaid in advance, and they do not accept to refund the money.

Do not go to this hotel, unless you really love mosquitoes

We had a great stay at Hotel Merkur. Perfect location, could not have been better. They provided wonderful dinner recommendations along with reservations if needed. So they really couldn't have done any more for us. They also helped with information and directions for sight seeing as well as arranging transportation. The staff is more than exeptional, very helpful and very kind (Especially Tomas, I have learned Czech thanks to him). If you want to go Prague, you should stay at the Hotel Merkur...

We stayed here with friends four nights in room 211. I definetaly loved the staff, we were also quite impressed by breakfast quality. Location is just perfect, in few minutes you can be wherever you want. I would come again when I were in Prague!
