“Nice hotel, excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

The hotel is quite far from downtown, but tue public transport is okay tough. The room we stayed at, was quit puritan, but clean, and quiet. The breakfast was great, and the service people were nice too. And last but not least, the hotel es really cheap and is in a great value.

Co-operative staff, nice wellness. Economy room on 4th floor was OK. I liked the surroundings. It is quiet and somehow different then in the city center. Like in the fifties. Special.

We booked the Extol Inn for the reasons that it wasn't right in the city centre, the cost, and that it has off road guarded parking.

We booked a double room with ensuite facilities and were put on the third floor. No problems carrying cases etc as they have two lifts. The room was very spacious but lacked a plug in the sink. Must remember to buy a travel plug!!

Although in Prague 7, it is a short walk and 24kc number 3 tram ride into Wenceslas Square.

Breakfast was the usual continental fare but with the addition of bacon (it seemed boiled!) and klobasa.

The hotel has the bonus of free wifi.

Room Tip: Ask for a standard double!

Extol inn is a well-priced hotel/hostel not too far from all of the main attractions of Prague. It is significantly better value than staying anywhere in Praha 1 (the city centre).

We were surprised at how large the room was. We had a double room with shared bathroom and both the room and the bathroom were very large, well-kept and clean. It definitely felt, in that regard, more like a hotel than a hostel.
As for the location, it wasn't great but it was very good. Extol inn is located in what is kind of a more run-down residential area and there isn't much to see in the immediate surroundings, but the tram stop is less than a block away. Getting there from the airport on public transit takes a while, but good directions can be found on hostelbookers and if you follow them to the letter, you should be okay (but it's a long haul - bus, two metro lines and a tram). Otherwise, getting to the city centre only takes a tram or two, and one tram to the Prague castle/Strahov monastery.
The hotel restaurant was very good and extremely well priced (beer under a dollar)!
Most of the service was rather noncommittal, but there was a really nice hotel desk clerk who helped us when we screwed up our booking, and even helped us with our train tickets.

On the downside, one of the nights we were there a school group of teenagers was too, and they were extremely loud. Soundproofing wasn't a big deal at all with the exception of that one night. Also, the room kind of had a light odd smell (the carpets are really old), but with the windows open a crack you couldn't even notice.

All in all, a good bet for the budget traveler.

We loved our room, which was much larger than expected. Reception was nice, and internet was free. Though with the internet, they had (free wireless) routers on every floor, but neither my friend or I could connect to them; only the one in the lobby worked for us. The whole hotel in general looked really clean and new, which was nice. Breakfast was also nice, and the restaurant has CHEAP beer.

The soundproofing was lacking, which became problematic at night. Teenagers going to (11pm) and from the bars (3am) would yell at each other in the street and in the lobby, both of which could be heard perfectly in our room. Reception seemingly did nothing to quiet the noise. We felt that the hotel was actually priced too low for what it was, attracting the type of clientele that yells in the lobby and in the street all night long.

Stayed in shared bathroom room, but best for the price and clean. Receptionists are helpful, Breakfast is the best for the price (included).I am not sure why they don’t have laundry room but they do have kitchen

There are plenty of transports to the city so distance does not matter, It is not far from the city so you could feel the local peoples’ and convenient.

Advice to the travelers

First time you get confused to reach the hotel from Prague so please take taxi

positive points: very good hostel, indeed a hotel. Very good price. Confortable room. Good breakfast. It has a good restaurant with very reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Excellent cost-benefit relation.
negative points: not in a central location, but next to many tram stops, is 8 min by tram and 30 to 40 min by foot to the city centre, is 10 min by foot from metro
Don’t give a free map of the city, only a brochure of the hotel with a small map. Don’t have free internet computer(the fee is 2 CK/min)
This hostel is strongly recommend
