“Good mid-range hotel in an excellent location for tourism or business”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

First, the location. A few people have already commented on this, but I think it’s important. Although the hotel is called “Novotel Prague Wenceslas Square”, it is NOT situated on Wenceslas Square. In fact it is about ten minutes’ walk away from Wenceslas Square (or one metro stop away from “Muzeum” station at the top of the square). Having stayed in the hotel several times I was fully aware of this, so it wasn’t a problem for me at all, but I really don’t know why they persist in having “Wenceslas Square” in the hotel’s name, when they could simply call it “Novotel Prague New Town” or “Novotel Prague City” or something similar that isn’t downright misleading. Anyway, that’s their problem.

Nevertheless, the location is excellent if you’re visiting Prague either as a tourist or on business (I’ve used it for both purposes in the past). It’s very close to a metro station (I.P. Pavlova) and easily walkable from the historical centre of the city. There are plenty of restaurants and shops (including supermarkets) in the vicinity.

Access by car is easy (it’s just off Jecna Street, one of central Prague’s main arteries). There’s a car park under the hotel (shared with the neighbouring Ibis hotel) – they charge about 20 EUR per night, which might seem a lot but it’s simply a fact of life that parking in Prague is expensive, so the price is set at the market rate. Some previous reviewers have said that access to the car park is very narrow and tight, but that wasn’t my experience at all – it’s just a normal underground car park. As long as you’re driving a normal-sized car and are capable of steering it, you’ll not have the slightest problem getting in and out.

The rooms have the standard Novotel facilities, including a safe and a fridge. Cleanliness was excellent everywhere, and the hotel appears to be really well looked after and run with some amount of pride – nice to see in a chain hotel. The air conditioning worked fine, and the room was well soundproofed, making for a restful night’s sleep. The bed was reasonably comfortable, though somewhat on the soft and squishy side. (I actually prefer the beds in Ibis hotels, which is a cheaper chain belonging to the same group. Ibis beds are always superbly comfortable in my experience, though it may just be personal preference.)

Overall, I would recommend this as a good mid-range hotel with an excellent location.

Usual Novotel standards. Half-block away from public transportation hub, and within downholl- walking distance of Wenceslas Square (return may be somewhat exhausting). Fantastic Paul's Bakery half a block away...skip the expensive Novotel standard breakfast. To relax, a (smallish) heated pool, sauna, and masseur. A rarity in Prague.

Room Tip: Rooms facing street are quiet and get sunlight.

Very nice hotel, lobby with xbox, toys and books for the kids, great swimming pool and excellent breakfast

The room was very small, but clean and modern - kids had fun watching cartoons in czech!
no english channels

Historic centre of city is a good 30 minute walk, or around 15 euros taxi.
