“Cheap and cheerful.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2008

Have just had a weekend at Bily Lev with five friends.Because we arrived at 10pm there was noone at reception and we had to speak to a supervisor through intercom who informed us that two of our party had been booked into another hotel around the corner because there was no room for them.tThe directions to the hotel were lost in translation so they spent fifteen minutes walking round looking for it.Besides that the hotel was clean,the rooms were big with fridgebar well stocked,towels changed every day and the receptionist was very helpful and apologised for the mix up.Breakfast was eggs, sausage and beans or continental,with plenty. Location was a short tram ride (9) to the city centre. We pre-booked airport transfer through the hotel and it was there on time both ways,cheaper if you book return.Prague is lovely , we had a great time.We enjoyed our stay at the Bily Lev and would go back again.

Staying in this hotel spoilt mine and my boyfriends holiday. The room was dirty and smelt of stale smoke and there were smokers stains on the walls and the bathroom was basic with a trickling shower.
The foyer and halls were depressing and dark from the dated decor.
The breakfast room was not nice either, we were served rubber cheese and stale bread for breakfast.
An overall awful experience for a couple wanting a romantic break.

Stayed July 2005

We stayed in this hotel the first nine days of August. The hotel is in a good position and the tram to go downtown (venceslao square) are very numerous and on time. Reception is open 24h/24h, that's good. Receptionists are friendly (except a young one), and help you giving information about the city. Very useful is the pc with free internet conncetion. Room are quite clean, with quite new forniture, tv, teapot. unfortunately, tv program are not changeable by users. Breakfast is good, but not remarkable. we had some problem with the interruption of water (public work in streets), but it is not a hotel's fault.
In the end, a good hotel, expecially if you need a place to return after tours of city.

I stayed here for just 2 nights.

The hotel is in a reasonable location, just walk up the hill 200m and catch a tram easily. It is about a 20 or 30 minute walk to the centre of Prague. There are a few good restaurants nearby too.

The fact it has an elevator is a definite plus.

The cobbled street out front is very pretty, but also very noisy whenever there is any traffic.

My room was quite spacious and comfortable. There was no in-room internet, but there was a computer downstairs that guests could use for free.

I''ve just come back from Prague where I stayed 4 days with my boyfriend.

We booked Hotel Bily Lev through the Internet, and we were worried because we read that check in begins at 2 pm. But as we arrived on 11 am, the receptionist was very kind and assured us a free room within 30 minutes. In the meanwhile we took a tour of the zone and he kindly also kept our luggage, even if he wasn't supposed to do so.

The other receptionists were kind and helpful, too.

Our room was very comfortable and with enough space for two, the bathroom clean and everything ok.

The only thing we didn't like were the window curtains, in the morning there was too much light in the room - anyway, no problem: the ideal condition for waking up better!

In the end I would like to recommend this hotel, especially for its staff and its reasonable price. It isn't very far from the centre too, and the tram station is only a short walk away!

We`ve just came back from Prague.
The hotel is very good for the price you pay. The staff very helpful and friendly, we`ve booked a room with double bed, but on arrival the receptionist told us that there was only a room with 2 separate beds free, and as compensation he gave us immediately a bottle of sparkling wine.

The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast very good, you get everything you need to start a day.
The location is very good, very near the tram or bus. I would stay there again!
