“excellent location for good price”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

I stayed for 4 days.
Staff were friendly. Room was good; clean, new furniture, free wi-fi, TV.
Location is very close to the center , 15min walking.
Breakfast was good, but I didn't like that was the same every day, no variety.

Pros :
Location (500m to Florenc station, tram station 100 m away)
Price (paid 60 euro for 2 p + child, breakfast included)
Breakfast --> good choice,
Room : clean and quite big with a huge terrasse ! ! (Room No 19)


Cons
No air conditioning ( It was known to us of course) - It was 35 degrees last week end (18-aug-12) in Prague and 27 in the room - When we asked at the reception if they had a fan we could borrow (we have a 3 months old daughter) we were kinda laughed at in a rude way! Like why do you need a fan as it's only 30 degrees !!

And that links to my second "Cons", the person working the nite shift on that week end was, let's put it this way, a pr*ck...
Would I return to this hotel ? probably for the location (I Like the Karlin area in Prague) but defo not for the staff working that week end

If you're looking for an inexpensive hotel in this area of town you couldn't do much better than the Karlin. Recently refurbished and immaculately clean and comfortable. Friendly, helpful staff. Much better than the Ibis hotel up the road - where I spent a night before switching to the Karlin - and it's cheaper.

I have stayed there in May 2012 and chose the hotel for the central location and affordable price. Many restaurants in walking distance. Certainly not a 5 star property but as good as it gets for the reasonable price. Location is excellent with about 10 minutes walk into the city center (1 tram station). Very friendly and helpful staff. Wireless internet is free and fast enough. TV set is small and basic. 2 German channels, the rest is in Czech. A good and reasonable restaurant is on the bottom floor. If you arrive with heavy luggage, the elevator is helpful. Defiantly a very good option for anyone not prepared to spend a fortune on accommodation but still in a central location.

Room Tip: Take rooms facing the back. The hotel is located on a main road. No excessive traffic but many tram...

Good location; tram stop and metro just a short walk. The next door restaurant serves inexpensive and very delicious food.

Reviewed 19 May 2012 via mobile

Four nights in May, room large and facing street but the noise was not too bad. The trams are there but they slide by, rumble.

Beds were two twins, very comfortable with lovely duvets. I can see it could be hot in summer. We had cool nights and kept one window open. Nice young couple ran the desk, very personable but we did not ask too much of them.. This is more like a pensione, or a tourist hotel than a real hotel, minimal services. The baths were modern, tile and nice fixtures. Breakfast was fine but not gourmet, good selection but the eggs - egg mcmuffin style - were like hockey pucks.
If you are a tourist this is fine for you. It's not the Hyatt. We paid $75 € double per night. Hotels downtown were 2-3 times that.
