Overall quality of Barcelo hotel close to Smichov offices is very good (except the prices in the bar :-) ). The breakfast is very nice. Rooms are comfortable, the only downside I see is the bathroom. As the hotel tries to be modern with all the design stuff, the equipment in bathroom was more design than functional, for instance the washbasin is so tight that it's hard to wash your hands.

We had a lovely stay in this hotel. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Such a beautiful city, with so many things to see. The hotel is located near all kinds of public transport and close to all kinds of restaurants and bars in Smichov. A very enjoyable stay.

Spent 4 nights here as part of a Jet2Holidays package.
The hotel is clean bright and modern - at a first glance the area doesn't seem too attractive but it's only a short walk to a new large shopping complex and the Andel Metro station where you can get Metros or Trams to all of the major prague attractions.
The Hotel offered us a welcome drink on check-in, on 3 of 4 nights there was no dinner buffet so we're offered food from the a la carte menu instead - a decent little menu and the food was pretty good. Beers in the bar and restaurant are quite reasonably priced. Breakfast buffet was more or less identical to any other Barcelo - reasonable variety of hot and cold options, quite good coffee - pretty standard.
Staff were generally pleasant and helpful. The room was clean modern and pretty quiet. TV's have an HDMI port if you want to plug in a laptop or similar to watch something other than CNN or True Movies. (no spare power sockets near the TV though).
I think 4 nights was maybe too long - we got a bit bored of trekking back and forth to Andel, we didn't find much to do on an evening near the hotel, and although it was a perfectly adequate place to stay, we should probably have paid a little more and stayed downtown.

We had a short trip here in September. This was booked through jet2.com holidays on a half board basis for 3 days. Everything about the hotel was great, such as location, cleanliness etc. For us the only disappointment was the cooked breakfast and evening meal, while the food was of decent quality, it wasn’t warm enough. As my wife works in a hospital she was only too aware of what food can do to you if not kept at the correct temperature. The first day we thought it would have been a “one off” but sadly this was the same all three days, wish I had said something really. As I say, can’t fault anything else, and was very good value for money.

After 2 weeks of business trekking around Europe I had a very pleasant holiday in Prague at this hotel. This hotel is away from the old town and castle district but served as a good base to take the trams or subway for sightseeing. Near the Andel stop, it was cheap and easy (with coins) to buy all day subway passes and ride the B metro line. There are 2 big grocery stores within walking distance to stock up on food as there are limited restaurants on the same block a the hotel.
The service was very friendly and help. The room was MUCH larger than I was accustomed to in Europe. I would definitely stay here again!

I have stayed in Barcelo Praha Five for two nights during my bussiness trip in Prague.

The hotel is clean, well maintained and decently modern. It is not directly in the city center however public transport is just on your doorstop. restaurants, shops, pharmacy all is in walking distance.

Biggest surprise was the staff. Check in, check out, info about restaurants, shops, pubs etc. everything was perfect. Big thanks belongs to Marek, Robert, Adela and Martin. All of them were very nice polite ( not very common in Prague) and smiling all the time. If you are planning to stay here the staff will make your time here very pleasant.

I definitelly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quality for a reasonable price.

My wife and I stayed here for a 3 night city break in October 2013. The hotel is modern, light and spacious; our room was big and had a large bathroom. Everywhere was spotless and staff were always helpful. We had an inclusive breakfast that pretty much catered for all tastes from fat-boy full English cooked to fresh fruit and juice and everything in between. Its a buffet and I had a different selection each day. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from Andel metro and bus station so very easy to get to from the airport on Metro route B.
What I really liked about the hotel was the location. Its a 40 min walk or a 10 min metro ride to the main touristy areas but the hotel is very much in a "local" area. There are a whole range of bars, restaurants and shops right on your doorstep that are used by Czechs, not tourists, and thus, to my mind, are far more interesting. We ate out each night and seemed to be the only non-Czechs around. That's why we came here!
The Barcelo Praha 5 gets top marks from me. I will stay here again.

Room Tip: Remember to ask for a double room or you may end up with a twin.
