Botel Albatros
Ranked #322 of 648 Hotels in Prague
Reviewed 1 June 2012

When in Prague I often choose to stay in various botels as it is a different experience and it is cheaper than most of the hotels in the same area. Albatros has a great location, few minutes walking distance from the Old Town, view of the river from the cabin window makes it a real experience. The equipment of the room is very basic, it resembles a real ship cabin, although the windows are taken from train cars. Look at the pictures from other reviewer to have an idea of the reality. My room smelled of cold cigarette smoke which was most annoying during the night. But the window view was great, the weather was good so I had the window opened the whole night. The sheets were clean, plush towels provided, bathroom was clean although worn a little bit. Breakfast was okay, not a great selection but just fine.

Room Tip: River side rooms are obviously better as the quay side looks directly into quite noisy street.

This is a very beautiful boat to stay in.. its only a 10 min walk to the old city that has great restaurants, bars, and attractions to see. the room is comfortable and clean and staff are friendly with a smile. breakfast is good with a lot of covered sitting areas to dine.

Room Tip: No air conditoning / noisy /

Staying here in April 2012, the staff were a bit miserable (but didn’t come here for the staff)
The cabin was quirky and great , cleaned and fresh towels everyday. The breakfast was good.
I pick the Botel cos we fancy something difference and cheap. That’s what we got. A nice cabin with a great view of the river. Great location The King Charles bridge is just a short walk along the river about 5 to 10 minutes. Easy to find at night and felt very safe walking back to the Botel.

Room Tip: the Tram system was great to get around. also no one seem to pay on them.

Definitely not as nice as it looks in pictures. Really very poor hotel. Rooms are old and you can see that the wood is rotten and damaged. We had spiders in our room, and that too many. Water nearby the botel smells and looks dirty. Breakfast was good and so was the restaurant (only from appearance point of view). We did not eat there because food is very cheap in Prague anyways.

Hotel is not good at all and if you are looking for something nice, look somewhere else.

I found the staff very rude and not interested in helping to make the stay comfortable. I was left standing at reception for a long time when trying to get some help but the staff acted like I was not there. The room didn't have coffee or tea facilities. I say if it going to stay beautiful Prague find a different hotel.

We have just returned from a short break in Prague and were really happy staying at the Botel Albatros. It was conveniently situated only about 10 minutes walk from the old town square and, because it's on the river, was easy to find after a night out! The staff were reasonably friendly and organised transport for us to and from the airport with a 20% discount on the return journey. The cabins were on the small side, but since the price was relatively cheap and we were out most of the time, this was never an issue and just added to the quirkiness!
I would stay here and again and recommend it to those wishing for cheap and convenient accommodation.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a view across the river, although this may make a difference in price.

Stayed at the Botel at the end of March for my Stag Do. The hotel is really nice, but maybe a little dated.

The staff were all friendly with some very useful advise about the town. Rooms were ample, beds comfy and shower worked just fine. I also had a great view of the river.cthe whole establishment is very clean.

Breakfast was very nice with a wide selection of cereals, cold meats, bread and even soup!!

The location of the Botel was its best feature, only a 10 minute walk into the very heart of the old town which is extremely beautiful.

Despite being on a stag do, doing what stag do's do, we were all blown away by Pragues architecture, stunning!

If you are into football try to catch a game at Slavia Prague, they have got a brand new stadium a 20 minute tram ride from the centre. We paid £8 a ticket and sat in the home end. It was the Prague derby and it was the best atmosphere of any sporting event I have ever been too. We then found a pub serving great beer at 86p a pint.

All in all I would highly recommend the Botel Albatros and Prague itself.
