Hotel William
Ranked #113 of 646 Hotels in Prague
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 December 2013 via mobile

This hotel is really wonderful. It's situated between the Old Town and Prague Castle, in the very nice area of Mala Strana, and is about 15 minutes walk to the castle and 5 minutes to Charles Bridge.

The room I got, 409, was very small, but beautiful enough to make me forget it! The buffet breakfast is amazing - the best hotel breakfast I can ever remember having. I stayed in a 4 star hotel in the Algarve over the summer, and the breakfast in this £28 a night hotel was better. The breakfast hall is also exceptionally beautiful.

One downside is that the lift is really tiny, you would be lucky to fit 2 people with luggage in it. Because of how small it was, I ended up using the stairs every day going up to the 4th floor, which wasn't the most fun after a full day of walking. I chose to walk everywhere, except for getting the funicular train up to the top of Petrin Hill, but there is a tram stop just round from the hotel, which will be handy for some.

I don't think I could recommend this hotel enough. Even though it's one of the cheapest places I've stayed, it's also one of the nicest. The staff take pride in it, it's spotlessly clean and very beautiful, and I wouldn't go anywhere else when returning to Prague.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled with family

We stayed here just one night. We got it very cheap ($60) on Expedia. The front desk agent named MARTINA was amazing. Helpful in every way. Other than that the rooms very tiny, no fridge, and no extra pillows. No waste basket ??? They could make it better with a few extra little things ! It was clean and O.K.!

Nice hotel for reasonable price. Room was clean and tidy and reasonable size with private bathroom. A bit noisey but we weren't too bothered about it. Very close to Castle and John Lennon Wall. Easy walk to old town. Staff were excellent. Would recommend.

Room Tip: If you don't like noise then request a room that isn't close to the street.

Value for money 3 star hotel. We booked it via hotels.com and got a good price for 3 nights stay. The hotel is situated at good location, about 10 minutes walk to Charles Bridge. Even the Prague Castle and St.Vitus Cathedral was within walking distance. We did not even take the tram, but did all the walking tour as the location of the hotel was great. Even the Church of Our Lady of Victory where the Infant Jesus is being kept is 2 minutes away. Museum Hudby is next door.

The only limitation is the hotel does not provide any complimentary water but the tap water was good enough for us. Hair dryer could be borrowed from the reception for a deposit of 200 corona. The pillow was too thin.


In general, the hotel was clean and good, the receptionists were nice and warm people.

I would recommned this hotel for anyone.

Room Tip: Room 202 was nice....

When my friend and I picked Hotel William for it convenient location, but also because we mistook that it would be an above-budget, if not luxurious, hotel. But when we checked in, we realized that the room we got (twin-beds) was tiny and more than a little musty. The bed linen was clean, but well-worn. We spent a weekend in Prague, and spent most of our time outdoors, so we saw our room only at the end of a tired day of walking around Prague's cobbled streets. The location is definitely a big plus. It's walking distance to the Old Town and the tram stop is right outside. Many other reviewers had raved about their breakfast. But that too turned out to be a disappointment, with very little variety or below-average quality of food. But we felt we paid more than average hotel rates for a hotel that was just not worth that, in terms of the room and the breakfast buffet.

Best for people requiring quieter stay - which we did. Easy walk to bridge and old town. Staff were excellent - very friendly and most helpful. Room was spacious (for two) and very clean. Would recommend.
