“Prague Gem in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Hotel Tyl is situated on a lovely small parklike plaza connected steps away from a major transit intersection. It is ideal for those who enjoy Prague's incredible transit system and enjoy taking lovely walks. The area is safe and we never felt uncomfortable at any hour of the day or night walking anywhere around the hotel. There are several 24 hour shops and restaurants within a block and this makes for an ideal option if you need anything at 3 am from an aspirin to absinthe and beyond.

The hotel staff is wonderful. They were patient and helpful. Our luggage was lost by the airline for two days and Hotel Tyl helped us communicate with the baggage representatives in Czech to help us get our much needed belongings. The door is locked at night, but the desk is staffed all night so no one can randomly walk through here or gain access to your rooms. We were greeted with a smile at all hours, even when returning past sunrise when perhaps a smirk and wink or frown would be expected, first class treatment of guests who were clearly taking their vacation seriously.

The breakfast room is lovely, quiet, quaint, and well stocked with delicious choices. Cheese, meats, pastries and more could be found daily along with some much appreciated coffee which made days start and nights end much better!

The room was huge. Huge. Beyond our expectations to be certain. We loved the way it was arranged and everything about it. Towel heater was a great touch. There are lovely safes built into the wall, you put a deposit for the key, and it is worth it for small valuables. It fit an iPad mini, I don't remember clearly if I had anything bigger, but just for scope of size. It is small and rectangular, so jewelry, cash, or other such things would be fine. Always felt safe with this as it would simply need to be removed with the wall and that didn't seem likely.

The stairway is gorgeous in the lobby, and adds much flavor to the place. We love Hotel Tyl and we love their property group so much that we are returning to Prague this summer to stay at another Garzotto hotel.

Prague is a great city, this is a great location, walk basically anywhere at any hour. The Zizkov Tv tower is a must see and a quick 10-15 minute walk (Albeit up a hill) and there are countless places to eat drink and be merry.

Our stay at Hotel Tyl got off to a bit of a rocky start as the lady behind the desk did not acknowledge us or say hello to us when we walked in, she just handed us the form we had to fill out without another word spoken... I believe it was the manager working at the time, and I work in customer service myself so I do hesitate to write this but it has to be said because it unfortunatly left a sour taste in my mouth for the rest of the stay, sorry!. The guy working on reception was very friendly. Moving on though the beds are comfortable, the rooms are a nice size, rooms clean, bathroom clean, very, very quiet which we like. Wifi is so-so, sometimes really good, sometimes really bad. The only thing I would say is that they supplied only one pillow per person in the rooms, and the pillows are very thin, I do feel that they need to supply two pillows per person per room, not just one per person as by the time we had asked for an extra pillow each all the extra pillows had been taken, so clearly extra pillows are in high demand in the hotel!! I do remember also that our bed cover was thrown into the corner one day after housekeeping had cleaned the room... and not really folded neatly or anything just thrown in the corner in a bunch? Dont know what happened there. Also, there was no toaster provided when we were there. I found this odd, besides this the breakfast was very decent. The hotel is in a great location, a really short walk to the centre and to the wonderful Wenceslas square. Overall we did enjoy our stay at Hotel Tyl.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are really quiet.

Hotel was in a good location, lovely market outside the Hotel. It was clean and beds were comfy,breakfast was fine I would highly recommend and would probably return again, the only downside was no tea or coffee facility in the room.

This is a great little hotel half a mile from wenceslas square the staff are friendly and the rooms are well set out we were there on bed and breakfast only but I can not fault it there is a good choice for breakfast. The hotel is how I would say it is old world style but don't let this put you off at least it has character unlike it's modern day contemporaries and it is well worth a visit

Good stay here, staff very friendly and informative, reception staff always stood when you enter or leave hotel.
Room was very spacious, clean and comfy, if a little warm overnight. Breakfast was disappointing, especially the coffee which was undrinkable but as the hotel price was such a bargain there was enough in the budget to eat out!
Location was great, tram 22 stop and IP Pavlova metro just outside. Would definitely recommend staying at the Hotel Tyl.

Room Tip: We were at back on first floor so no noise at all and although next to lift we were unaware.

We stayed at the hotel in March, We asked for a double bed and a bath and we got both,The reception staff were very friendly and helpful especially Sandra who always stood up on your arrival or departure from the hotel and always spoke to you,The room was cleaned every day,The hotel is in a very good area close to the main Square about a 10 minute walk or a 1 minute underground ride,There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, Tesco,KFC,Mcdonalds,Starbucks,Costa coffee, We found a couple good bar/restaurants within 100 yards of the hotel, Mytilda which was very nice good food and drinks at reasonable prices,The other was called the cellar bar which we really liked good food and drinks again very reasonable prices,It was always busy in the evening with a good atmosphere,The staff were very friendly, If you smoke it was allowed, We would recommend this Hotel and definitely stay again when we go back to Prague.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of Hotel it was nice and quiet
