“Trendy Boutique hotel walking distance from historic sites; just remodeled”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

I took my son and daughter to Prague for the weekend. My daughter and I have been to Prague before, and I knew we wanted to stay in the center of the Old Town/Staré Mesto area. We picked the Emblem Hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were really glad we did.

The hotel is one block off of the historic Old Town Square / Staromestské námestí. The square was our first stop: we saw the fairy-tail beautiful Town Hall tower, Astronomical Clock, Tyn Church and St Nicholas Church. From here, we can easily walk to the city's other historic sites.

The Emblem opened last fall, newly remodeled. It has a very hip trendy boutique style. The lobby has a reception area where the staff checks you in with a iPad tablet while you are sitting on comfy chairs around a coffee table. The friendly check-in person then spreads out a map and gives a wonderful presentation of the city sites, exciting all of us about our visit. A very good first impression!!

The rooms are generous-sized. Myself and my son's room had very plush single beds. We had a desk, flat-screen TV, WIFI (included), mini-bar, big closet, and a big window view of the street below. The bathroom was very nice; the bath/shower had a really big shower head with fancy fixtures. The room was all new; even the hardwood floors were new. Very nice -- just one notch short of posh.

It was a very hot weekend and we were disappointed that our room was warm and stuffy. We opened the windows at night to try to get a little more comfortable.

Breakfast was not included with our room rate. The breakfast area had a very nice European style spread of meats, cheeses, and breads. I am sure it was good.

Our last night in Prague, it rained (that was good thing, it brought in some cooler weather). Our rooms had umbrellas and we used them to continue our walking tour around the city.

We arrived in Prague by train. We took a taxi from the train station to the hotel. The taxi driver didn't recognize the hotel, but did know the address. I negotiated a 600Kc price. Be sure to negotiate a price before you get in a taxi. My taxi did not have a meter!?

To get around the city, we bought 24-hour Tram/Metro tickets (look for the red M signs). We took Tram 22 upto the Prague Castle / Pražský hrad; it is hard to walk up the hill, the tram is your friend 8-). Our hotel is at the Staromestska Metro stop. (good to know, especially in the rain)

To get back to the airport, we used the hotel limo service. It was 750Kc, more expensive than a taxi, but our friendly driver gave us a unique tour on the way to the airport.

Just so you know: many of the shops and restaurants would take Euros. The Czech Koruna (CZK or Kc) is the local currency and that is the proper way to pay for things, but if you are like me and running low on Kc, some places will take Euros.

In addition to the Old Town Square and the Castle, be sure to visit the Jewish Quarter, Wenceslas Square, and the Charles Bridge. It is all walking distance and historically beautiful!

All of this beauty so close to the Emblem Hotel. We were glad we came and we'd recommend this hotel to others.

Thank you for taking the time to share your detailed experience, and thank you for all of your kind words. We are very lucky that all of the city's main hot spots are so close to us, and we really appreciate your wonderful comments on our style, amenities, and just generally the way we do things here! We apologise for any inconvenience that the temperature caused you while you were here, but we have taken measures now to ensure that the summer heat doesn't cause any more problems.

We'd like to give a special thanks to Michael Hanak. He is the right person on the right place. Excellent drinks, service and attention to dealing with people. We enjoyed a lot of fun and can not wait for the next visit. So, if you want to see the beauty of Prague from the picturesque and romantic terraces, do not hesitate to try this place. You will not regret it. Visitors from the street :))

Dear Adrianna Š,

We are so thrilled that you wandered into The Emblem and got to experience our fantastic rooftop bar! Thank you so much for all of your compliments, especially concerning Michal. We will definitely make sure to pass on your special thanks and all of your kind words to him! We opened The M Bar recently because we wanted a place for people to be able to sip some amazing cocktails, sit back relax, and enjoy the weather and the beauty of this city from our great Terrace. We are so glad that you experienced all of this, and again we thank you for sharing your experience. Hopefully we will see you again soon!

I can honestly say that the Emblem helped make my first trip to Prague a perfect one - it is by far one of my favorite hotels I've ever stayed at. The location is perfect and the hotel itself is gorgeous, from the rooms (with insanely comfortable beds) and the rooftop to the restaurant and lobby area, its decor is chic and modern, yet still very comfortable and welcoming. This all paled in comparison though to the staff who are SO friendly, helpful and fun! We felt like we were coming home to an extended family each night as we were greeted with a warm smile and a friendly faces eager to help in ANY situation. The restaurant was also amazing, we enjoyed a full breakfast each morning and treated ourselves to a wonderful steak dinner at George! I wholeheartedly recommend The Emblem to anyone traveling to Prague - for business or pleasure - and if I’m ever lucky enough to return to the beautiful city, I will most definitely be staying at the Emblem.

Emblem is a nice boutique hotel in a solid stone mansion, designed with modern style and pretty high standard. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The location was extremely good in our opinion, at the edge of the main square toward the river, so it is a very short distance to both attractions. Most staffs were very attentive, especially when we checked in.
We had a couple of small issues, the wifi in the room was very inconsistent. As I need it for some work, it became a little annoying. The staff on the front desk didn't seem to know how to help either. As guests, we got a strong feeling of being suggested to use the spa service through pre arrival emails and also on site persuasion. Noticeably more so then most boutique hotels, friendly aggressive marketing was how we call it. We feel the staff members needs more training too. While some were very friendly, some were less professional, such as the cleaning lady who was rather unfriendly.
Consider the facility and location, plus the hotel seems to make, we rated it as very good but it has some work to do for sure.

Dear FlyingSocks,

Thank you so much for sharing your experience and feedback with us! We are so happy that you appreciated our modern style, comfortable rooms, and extremely good location. We are very lucky that we so centrally located because everything you need to see is basically right here, but our Creative Director spent about 5 years focusing on every detail you see in the hotel, so we will definitely share your kind words with him.

We appreciate all your comments because it only helps improve! We apologise if you felt any aggression or the pushing of our Spa facilities. There aren't many rooftop spas in Prague, so we are just super proud to have one! We also have recently opened The M Bar on the rooftop Terrace, so we try and inform all guests of this brand new amenity for the summertime. We will definitely take this into consideration and explore all of our your comments about your experience with our WiFi and staff. Again, we apologise if any of this caused you any inconvenience.

We hope that you are able to come back to Prague soon, and we would love to welcome you back at The Emblem Hotel. Thanks again for everything!

Kind Regards,
Hannah

The hotel is beautiful, new and well designed in a very modern way.
The location of the hotel is great, it's near the Old City square, the Jewish region and Charles bridge.
It provides very good breakfasts.
The staff is very kind and pleasing, the Queen Room is pretty comfortable.
I recommend looking at the website of the hotel before booking a room, sometimes they suggest really good discounts on it. We, specifically got a 20% off our order on the website.
The restaurant George is excellent, it has a nice atmosphere, and I really enjoyed eating there.
Tip: We used a cab of the Prague Airport Transfers, and it was really good!

What an amazing location and what a wonderful staff. Everyone in the hotel is there for YOU! We made arrangements for an airport pick up and we were greeted immediately and were off in the hotel's mercedes to the hotel. Emblem is perfectly situated in a very beautiful location right between old town square and the Charles Bridge. Emblem's individual attentiveness to your needs is impeccable. It is a modern boutique feel and very metropolitan. The contrast of being in such an old town and coming back to a very modern room is refreshing. We loved going downstairs at the end of the evening for a nightcap and to watch the world cup. Since our return we have told all our friends about your hotel it's AMAZING! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Boutique like Hotel. The rooms are spectacular. The beds are really comfortable. The service and amenities fantastic. The best location in Prague! If I could rate 6 stars, I would do it. Only small negative point: the rooms are small and the King beds are Queen beds in North American standards. In summary: outstanding experience for the price!

Room Tip: Go for larger rooms.
