Reviewed 13 August 2012

Visited Prague for an anniversary break. The setting is lovely, just on the edge of the main city centre: convenient yet not too noisy. Walking aboard, first impressions are great: all wood panelling, leather sofas and glass cabinets. The receptionists are knowledgeable and mostly friendly. The rooms are snug (as you would expect) but tidy. A kettle and some shampoo would have been nice. The beds are singles pushed together, so there's a hard ridge down the middle, and the pillows are too soft. Didn't try the restaurant, but the breakfast was simple but filling.

It was a great expirience staying on a floating hotel. The place was very clean, staff very helpful and always "Service with a smile". The room was a good size, very quiet. The Restaurant was first class, even so the menu is a little bit limited. The breakfast was great, had something for every taste. I'm glad i only stayed three day.

Room Tip: I was glad we stayed on the upper level

Travelled with family for a wedding, didn't realise at first that we were on a boat!! Beautiful wooden panelling and sea chandelry . The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of cereals, fruit, hot food and cold meats.
Drinks were very reasonable and excellent service.

A real treat to start a perfect weekend.

We were strolling along the Vltava river and stopped for something to eat at this boat restaurant. The interior is just gorgeous with lots of rich wood throughout and a nautical theme. They make the best cream of mushroom soup that I've ever had. The pilsner was bomb! In fact, I keep buying pilsners to try but none compare. We also enjoyed the rolls and butter and pasta alfredo. I'd highly recommend. The staff was kind and friendly too. Afterwards, take a walk along the river. Swans came up to us looking for a handout. Really cute!

The Botel Admiral is so charming - the decor is very "cruise" like, etc.
The restaurant had good food that was reasonably priced, and the staff was incredibly helpful. In addition, the staff works as a travel agency, so we were able to book tours, etc directly through them at reception & have it arranged for us to be picked up. In a town like Prague, where the streets are very narrow & windy and you can't understand the language, this was a nice perk :)

The breakfast was poor - decent selection but not great quality overall. We had some free coffee & then ate later in Prague after the first try at the Botel breakfast.

The rooms are small but adequate - larger than a cruise ship at least. The decor in the rooms is outdated & even the first appearance of the Botel itself is a little disappointing, but don't let that deter you. We loved waking up on the river, watching the boats & swans to by etc. It was is a great location & we were very happy with our stay there.

I stayed for a couple of nights in this hotel in May 2011. It was my first time staying in Boat hotel and I really loved the experience. It was wonderful to wake up and see the river flowing just outside your window and the views of the bridge and buildings and churches on the other side of the river are really nice. If one likes rivers / water and staying in a different type of accomodation - this is really the place to stay in Prague. On my part I was delighted.

Location: very good. It is of course on the river. It is close to public transportation (metro and tram) but if one does not mind to walk for 15-20 minutes by the river, one would easily arrive in town center by foot. The area is quiet and beautiful. It was nice to walk around and there are also many cafes, restaurants and a big shopping mall 5 minutes walk from the hotel.

Rooms: they are standard boat cabis which meants not very large. I stayed alone in the room, so there was definitely enough space. However, even for two people it is ok to sleep there.

Breakfast: was my favourite part. The restaurant is on the top terrace with beautiful views of Prague. The choices are good and varied and the atmosphere in the dining room is very cheerful and cozy. The decorations are in "marine theme" and are very nicely done.
The restaurant seems popular with local businessmen for lunch / dinner. I ate there lunch which, though on a bit expensive side for Prague, was very very good quality. When I later moved to another hotel for corporate event I was attending, I still came back to this restaurant with my colleagues for lunch as I thought both food and ambiance were lovely and I wanted them to experience it.
Staff was nice and friendly; always greeting you and smiling.
My only little complaint was that there was no wi fi in the rooms, only in the hotel lobby. However, there were comfy arm-chairs and sofa there, and it was ok to stay for a while using their free wi fi.

Overall, I would definitely look this hotel up next time I am in Prague; as I had a very comfortable, pleasant and quite unique stay :).

Room Tip: The roomes facing the water / river should be lovelier than the ones facing the town.

Admiral is located on the Vltava River in Prag. It is a stationary boat. There staff is friendly and helpful. The location cannot be beat. Within walking distance you will find the Charles bridge, Cross the bridge and you will be on the path to Old Town square, and then onto St. Wenceslaus Square. The shops and restaurants along the way are incredible. If you don't feel like walking back, you can hop on the metro or tram.

Room Tip: The rooms are small but quaint, ask fot the ones facing the river so you can watch the boats go by t...
