“Great location, average hotel”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

All in all , its a no frills hotel with easy access to most of the places in Prague.

The location is fantastic with Metro/subway station right outside the hotel entrance and tram stop 200m away (No local buses in Prague, only tram and metro)
We could walk to two of the best rated restaurants as per tripadvisor (U kroka - about 20 minutes walk, Tradice - about 2 minutes walk)

The actual hotel itself was just about ok.
Positives -
1.Friendly and helpful staff.
2.We arrived early on the day of check-in and we were checked in to the room without a long wait.
3. All rooms have a balcony (its a good view of the city, although not as fantastic as the photos in the site)
4. Free wifi (but only on 6th floor, where all the rooms are. Not on the reception or any other area in the hotel)


But I have to say, please take note of the following before you book the hotel (or at least go with these expectations in mind)
1. All rooms have twin beds with separate mattresses, which are joined together to make a double bed. Personally for me, it was alright however I thought it was a bit odd for a hotel to have no room with double bed . Thought should make a note of it in case it is a major consideration for anyone .
2. The pillows seemed like someone really angry decided to flatten them into thin squares rather than plump rectangles :) So if you are used to a good quality fluffy pillow, manage your expectations accordingly or carry an air pillow with you.
3. The breakfast quality is just about ok , to be really generous in the review.
4. There is no room service.
5. There is an electric kettle provided in the room, however you have to buy teabags, sugar, creamer etc at the hotel reception desk or you could buy them from the market.
6. The hotel provides you with towels, soaps, bathgel (two sachets for a twin room) but no shampoo / conditioner/ bodylotion/ dental kit/ sewing kit etc.

The Akcent hotel in Prague could not be in a better location for easy access to both the metro, trams, buses and trains. Whilst not in the main centre, it only took a short metro or tram ride to get to the main sites. The hotel is located on the 7th floor and although next to the bus station we did not experience any noise. We had a lovely spacious room with balcony which had great views of Prague especially at night. The cleanliness of all aspects of the hotel could not be faulted and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast on a morning was plentiful with a good selection of both hot and cold foods. Nearby there are some good restaurants and a large shopping centre. For location, transport links and price then this hotel cannot be beaten.

The hotel is quite cool, not too far from the centre of Prague and very well connected. It has all you can expect from a 3 star hotel: nice clean rooms, decent breakfast, good service. The thing I loved the most about my stay in Akcent Hotel though was the kindness and helpfulness of the receptionist Jana, who made my stay very enjoyable.

This is a simple modest hotel. No flaws. You do not have to pay for unnecessary luxury, you do not need. Staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast sufficient. The connection to the downtown is perfect.
Will go there again.

Stayed in Akcent Hotel for 5 days in march 2014 and had a great time , the hotel was very nice and all the staff were very friendly and all spoke english as did everyone in prague did , the hotel was right outside the bus and metro stations but no sound at all, we were about a 20min walk to the centre of the town with shops and restuarants all along the route, well worth a visit

Room Tip: all rooms are on the 6th floor we had a great view of prague city

It was a fantastic hotel that was really clean and had a nice feel to it. There was good wifi, nice bathroom and a good view all for a really cheap price. The only downside was how far away from the city centre it was but this was made up for by the fact that the train station is 10m from the front door. AND for the gambling addicts there's a casino next door :)
