“Very good deal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Good choice for a budget (and short) stay, this is a no-frills hotel located in the very nice, up-and-coming neighbourhood of Zizkov (full of bars and restaurants). You have to take the Tram 5 to go to the centre, but public transport in Prague is both efficient and cheap.
My single room had a TV, ensuite bathroom, hairdryer and even a microwave and mini fridge.
The staff at reception is very helpful, and they even sell day passes for public transport. You get your own key, which is something I always find useful.
Breakfast is included in the price and there are plenty of options.

However, the rooms on the top floor can get very very hot during sunny days (this was in Spring, I can't imagine what it would be like in Summer), so much that it was unbearable at some point (and even hotter than outside!). You are given a small fan and, if you want to use the A/C, you need to pay extra and make a deposit for the remote control.

Overall, basic accommodation at a very affordable price. If you are on a tight budget and just need a clean room to spend the night, go for it.

Room Tip: Skip the rooms on the top floor. They have sky windows so it can get very hot on sunny days (you hav...

Over all, this hotel was pretty good. I mean, what you expect from a 3 star hotel. If you are on a budget, this would be a place I recommend. The breakfast was fantastic compared to other places with breakfast included. This hotel is old, reminded me of old soviet apartments, but overall the room was specious; in fact we had extra bed where we had all of our stuff laid out. Rooms were cleaned on daily basis. City center is only few tram stops away, tram 5 and 26 would be able to get you there in no time. Also, at front desk you can purchase tram tickets, and exchange currency. People, who compare this hotel to American standards, are imbeciles.

So this is was my solo trip to Prague, so was looking for nothing fancy and on a budget and booked this one cause it was a great deal on expedia. 44 euros for 2 nights.
The place is located in a district called Zizkov about 2 kms from Prague central station and about the same from Old Town Square from where all the major attractions of Prague start. And sinxe Prague is such a walking city this didn't bother me at all.
My first impression of the place was good... though it smelt a bit antiseptic (like a hospital). The room was nice and big and could easily accommodate 3 people, though I was just single.
But then the real issues started. On the first day I left the hotel at around 3 in the afternoon for sight seeing and when I came back realised that someone had been to my room. I first thought that it was housekeeping... but my bed was not made so was unsure. Then I realised that someone had used the toilet and had broken the flush. There was also a flashlight left in the toilet, looked like someone had tried to use it while repairing the flush.. all in all the flush did not work for the next 3 days inspite of having complained.
Also my room was facing the main road which has a tramline running across... and this can be quite noisy and disturbing at night evem for me who is a very sound sleeper.
Another thing... what is with the motion sensor lights in the bathroom. So if ur standing just brushing your teeth or scrubbing yourself or on the toilet seat... the lights in the bathroom would just go off as it would not sense enough motion.
Overall very mixed feelings about this place. Would I come here again... Definitely not with Family. Would I recommed it... Yes if u are on a budget and cant get a better deal. Maybe this was only my experience and you may have a better one.

Prague was a beautiful city and neither of us had been before and we loved every moment. This hotel was a little out of the city but really only 10 mins on the tram outside and with 3 to pick from we never waited more than 4 minutes and they run till really early so it never was an issue. The help desk staff were all really helpful and spoke plenty enough English to help us with all requests and even tried to help us and appreciated our attempts at Czech! They sell bus passes etc at he desk too so travelling around is easy and most days we walked in first thing and it only took 15 minutes.
There isn't a restaurant but you do get a comprehensive breakfast included. All continental and the same each day but more that enough choice for our 4 days so we didn't get bored of item
All in all we loved it, thought it was brilliant for the price we paid and would happily stay again. Thanks hotel golden city :)

The hotel although is not very near to the centre but a tram stop is just outside it. The hotel staff is very helpful. Breakfast is good. Good value for that price and they give a good exchange rate for money too. So if you are staying here, you can gen your currency exchanged and have your tram tickets and city map from them too :)

Taking in account the price, everything was fine. Location is not very central, but not a real issue, breakfast is decent and rooms are fine. The only thing I disliked was that despite my request the room windows headed to a busy street so it was quite noisy. Overall good experience but I would try something else next time.

This hotel, housed in a beautiful art nouveau building, is a little away from the main tourist drag, but very easily accessible by Prague's excellent tram service. My room was compact but had everything I needed for a short stay. In room wifi was fast and reliable. Breakfast in the small and busy breakfast room was varied and of high quality. This offers very good "no frills" value.
