“swans swim past while you are having breakfast”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

A basic but cozy and atmospheric place to say in wonderful location with great views. Not luxurious but adequate if you just want a central base in Prague, a stones thrown from the Charles Bridge, the Rudophfino, and the Jewish quarter.

Breakfast basic abut lots of it, it’s fun to have swans and ducks swim by while you are eating, plus there was some interesting unpretentious people to sit with.

I was there in March when it was cold outside, but the cabin was warm and cozy, the shower was tiny and basic, but what you would expect on a boat.

I would recommend this for young and old people alike, who want an interesting experience and a cheap no frills pace to stay in the center of Prague.

The rooms were old and nothing extra. On the other hand, you can profit from a good location, standard breakfast and a really really low price. I would recommend this hotel for modest travellers who just need a place to sleep.

convenient location, easy to find , and not far from the center and public transportation .nice view if your room faces the river.
nevertheless : not even a smile nor a glance at the reception desk neither checking in or out ;
small rooms ( as awaited) , stinking smoke, over heated ( we asked twice to set it down, a guy came to tell us to turn the broken tap clockwise without fixing it !!)
finding a free table for breakfast is a real issue.
as we came just before new year eve the prices did not leave me the remembrance of a good value at all.

Room Tip: choose a river view ,

It's location is very good - few minutes by walk to all Prague's attractions.
We payd 50 euros for 2 nights - so we find it a fair price.
Well the location of botel is one of the biggest attractions of it. We also used Botel's parking - which was helpful - it is hard to find a free space to leave a car in Prague.
The rooms are really small - claustrophobia people be aware. But we used the room only to sleep in it.
Breakfest was nice.

Room Tip: good location for sightseeing

It is not This is not a hotel , it should not have even 1 star. The room is very small and dirty with spiders. The furniture is maybe from 18th century. The bathroom also very very small with terrible smell. Brekfast was a joke, poor selection, no vegetables and fruits. Wifi does not work.
Positive thing is the location 10 minutes to the centre by walk. If you like your money chooge another hotel. Never ever.

Room Tip: good room is in another hotel

Good value if you just need somewhere to sleep. Botel offer nice river view, restaurant with bar, but quality of food was terrible. Breakfast pack was amazing (1x bun, 4 slices of cheap tourist salami and apple). Botel has good location - few steps from city center (10 min), florenc coach terminal (10 min) etc.... hotel offers cheap parking place, just 100 czk/pn 4 Eur /night....

Reviewed 4 November 2013

Just returned from a weekend for a 50th birthday. We travelled as a group ranging from late twenties to late 50's. The botel is a unique and an ideal base for exploring the city. You are a 10min walk from all the major attractions. Staff were standoffish but I think this was more a cultural difference than that they were unfriendly they were helpful when you asked for help. Food was basic but edible nothing fancy, breakfast was continental but if its not your thing then there are plenty of places close by to grab a bite. Rooms were small but practical, clean but not spotless and towels were changed daily. Overall excellent value for money cheap and close to the attractions. It was only a base for sleeping. We had the bonus of a river view room. I would definately stay here again ideal for short breaks.

Room Tip: One side of the boat overlooks the river the other a busy road.
