“The unique comfortcombination”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

Villa Mansland combines a material comfort with the human comfort which makes me feel very good.Warm atmosphere, so easy to make nice contacts, only gaymen and boys, very friendly staff with a good attention for the guests, good management, freedom and safety!
I'll come back with pleasure.

Stayed in November and was satisfied with the Villa Mansland. My room nr. 8 was well furnished, clean and quiet in the night. I also recommend theirs restauranr menu. Its not that big, but always fresh prepared and very tasty. I was actually suprized about wellness facilities. Big sauna and whirhpool with a professional masseur. I will reommend this place to my friends and come back.

Room Tip: I had nr. 8. Can recommend.

'One of Prague's best kept secrets' it strangely declares on the villa's promotion. Why would a business wish to be a secret? Some of the reasons become apparent when you stay there. It has some good points. The rooms are spacious, well furnished, warm and comfortable - and reasonably priced. The bathroom facilities are quite good. But there are truely bad points! While David, the manager, is very polite and professional, if he is not around you are left at the mercy of indifferent, moody amateurs. Drink and, amazingly, food is 'served' in the Secondary Cancer Salon, otherwise known as the lounge. This is a digusting environment thanks to the staff and various hangers-on chain smoking throughout the day. This may be legal in the Czech Republic, but it just isn't acceptable by modern European standards. Suggestions on earlier posts that action has been taken to address both the surly staff and the toxic atmosphere appear to be without foundation. So, if these are conditions you are prepared to endure in return for the villa's opportunities, then fine; but if you prefer proper service and enduring health, then this is a secret in which you do not have to share.

I stayed in both hotels this year and there are some experiences here:

Villa Mansland:
Nice place, but:
-very poor breakfast, which needs a real improvement ! The worst experience was the Czech lads are smoking at the table while we eat even not bothering to ask If it`s OK for us. So we have decided to go for breakfast somewhere else.

BEWARE: The guest book on their site:

http://www.guestbook-free.com/books3/rainbowbook/

is very FAKE. Any negative feedback is being removed and also fake guest book entries are made !


Rainbow Inn:
Also a nice place, but more little bit "out of the world". Cleaner as Villa Mansland, but for next time I would prefer Mansland for one reason: The swiss Boss of Rainbow Inn (Mr.Thilo Fercher) is not a really good character, a split personality with very unpredictable behavior which made me really sick. The stay could be great only If he`s not there. His young czech helper Mike is perfect. So you need to have some luck to be there in a right time.

This is a special place for gay traveler to Prague, more a guesthouse than a hotel. A good place for a man looking for fun and entertainment.
Nice service from young men, not perfect, but for sure charming.
Great kitchen, if you are lucky and Olga, the good soul of Villa, is in the house. But the other cooks are fine too.Or you can try one of the restaurants in walking distance (Giovanni is highly recoommended!).
Not really cheap, but rooms are always for two.
Special: The beautiful garden, very cosy.
To get to the city centre you take the tram (500m from Villa) or ask Stefan, the taxi driver you can book as well for special trips.
All in all an uncomplicated place, to relax, to have fun.

I agree generally with JohnnyMisky. This is indeed is a friendly hotel with excellent amenities. The staff are well trained and they are very good at anticipating the needs of guests without having to be asked. The room I used compares favourably with any 4 or 5 star hotel. The room was spotless and kept that way during my stay with an excellent maid service. As someone who is used to smoke free bars and restaurants in England, I was not too happy with the smoke laden atmosphere throughout the hotel. Otherwise I was very pleased by Villa Mansland and would recommend it highly.

This is our third time staying at the hotel and again we were made to feel very welcome. The initial meeting was with a charming guy who took our passports and then showed us to our room. The room was clean but smelt of cigarette smoke which unfortunately permeates the whole hotel - the Czech Republic still allow smoking in public areas I am afraid. The hotel staff are wonderful and made us very welcome including being invited to one of the staff's birthday party, However there was one bar staff member who was an exception to this and who has an attitude problem but he did not ruin our stay - the guy just simply needs training and told he is in a customer service environment! The cooking for breakfast is adequate without frills, the evening meals - I would eat somewhere else. The bar is run by other people so be careful to sign for all of your drinks as there was some confusion when we were leaving as to whether we had paid for all of our drinks. The hotel has hired a new manager who needs to sort out some of the small problems within the hotel - these are not major but they do need attention. It is very close to the local metro and you can be in the centre within 20 minutes. Overall I would recommend the hotel if you are passing through Prague.

The bar/restaurant is not going to be runned by other company anymore, so we will do our best to satisfy our guests also with good dinners and entertainment. And we will make sure that all of our staffs understand what ''my guest - my lord'' means.

Hope to see you soon in Prague again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Prague's unique gay resort Villa Mansland is the only hotel in the Czech Republic to have been awarded three crowns - the highest possible rating - by the widely respected Spartacus International Hotel & Restaurant Guide. Its inspectors praised, in particular, the Villa's especially welcoming and pleasant atmosphere. Villa Mansland's unique facilities were also singled out for praise in a very positive report broadcast at peak viewing time by the Czech national television channel CT1.If you're looking for Prague accommodation that gives you a 5-star experience - or one that's aimed at the mass market - then Villa Mansland is probably not the place for you. But if you enjoy staying somewhere where you're treated like a good friend, then this is it! The owner Hendrik and his team made me feel completely at home - even part of the family. I know it's become a cliche, but in the Villa's case it is true: you'll arrive as a stranger but leave as a good friend. All the staff work to high standards and are respectful, courteous and helpful at all times. At the Villa, the guest is king (or queen!) While there are no super-standard spa facilities and no star chef, there is a professionally-manned Wellness Centre and the kitchen offers good, wholesome food. All in all I enjoyed a wonderful holiday and it will certainly not be my last visit. Many thanks to Hendrik and his team and my enthusiastic recommendation of Villa Mansland to all visitors to Prague and potential guests. ... more   less
