I stayed at the Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre for two nights during a business trip to the Czech Republic at the end of May. I was working with a couple of colleagues who also stayed at this hotel. We arrived late during the evening of Wednesday May 28, it's about 30-40 minutes from the airport depending on the time of day. Check in was very laborious even though it was around 22h00. I was in a queue behind two other guests and it must have taken about 30 minutes to check in since the staff member was doing everything including being telephone receptionist. It's always amazing to hear the silly questions some people ask! But it really should not have taken that long! I had a similar experience on the following days too Even with my 5 am check out. My room (which had no particular view) was acceptable if a little shabby and in need of renovation.
The bar was ok for a casual drink and not at all expensive for a hotel. The down side is that everybody smokes (or at least it seems like that!) and it's difficult to get away from the smell. We tried the breakfast offering and an evening meal on the second night. Service was with a smile and rapid and I can recommend these although the choice was a little limited compared to other hotels. Quality was average.
We spent all our time travelling to a business engagement 50 Km out of town early in the morning and used the hotel as somewhere to sleep. There were not so many amenities but there was access to a spa close by. The second night the hot & cold water was cut off! It stayed that way most of the night - I was lucky to get a shower the next morning (I left very early). Normally, I would recommend this hotel but was dissatisfied with the water problem and with the slow reception service which seemed due to the fact that only one person was on duty off peak and who catered to everybody (check in/out telephone etc).
