You cannot beat the location of this hotel, unless you pitched a tent in Old Town. We were enchanted by the views from our room. Overlooking the astronomical clock and charming old town. You can watch street performers and listen to lots of music, smell the food vendors and hear the chiming clock. It is rather loud though until around midnight as there is always stuff going on outside, but had no problems sleeping after that. Also, its great to wake up early and get photos of Old Town Square from your room before the crowds get there!

The room was spacious, all antique furniture, had a very old-world feeling; very fitting for a city like Prague. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. The showers are the only downside, they should mount the shower to the wall rather than only giving a handheld. That being said, I would ONLY stay here next time I come back to Prague, its great!

Stayed here for 3 nights and it is in a fantastic location. Walking distance from all the main sights.
The hotel itself is well presented inside with friendly staff and clean rooms.
The breakfast buffet is varied so most people will find something they like.
There are several restaurants close by too.
Would highly recommend this hotel.

When me and my husband decided to go to Prague on a short getaway, we found Grand Hotel Praha through Trip Advisor and decided on it based on the historical feel of the pictures. We were not disappointed.

Our first surprise came at check-in. We had booked a budget room, since we thought they looked plenty o' nice enough, but they had put us in the historical part of the hotel, in a spacious room with antique-looking furniture and a splendid view of the astronomical clock. (As a costume-crazy re-enactor, I immediately regretted not bringing my 19th century costumes along.) The double bed was both comfortable and beautiful, but a little bit squeaky. We had wardrobes aplenty, a golden chandelier above us and the beautiful green bathroom had both a shower AND a bath.

I would say the only thing lacking in the room was electrical outlets. We found two in the entire room, and none of them were close to the (beautiful Victorian) desk, which meant that we couldn't use the laptop on the desk for more than an hour or two at the time. The room also didn't have a coffee/tea machine, which is standard in most 4-star hotels, but since we already knew through a Trip Advisor review that there wouldn't be any and why (fire hazard, old building) that didn't feel like a let-down. Old Town Square is noisy at night, though, so if you're a light sleeper or easily annoyed by sound, you should ask to get a room in the back of the hotel. We weren't disturbed by it, and a little noise is only to be expected when you live in a busy area.

As a smoker, I had hard time finding a place to feed my habit. The only place were smoking was allowed was inside the restaurants (which felt weird since smoking is strictly prohibited in restaurants in Sweden) which led to me standing sheepishly outside the main doors whenever I needed to light up. Since the hotel doesn't have a garden, I realize this might be a tough one to solve, but maybe it would be possible to put a chair or two outside for the hotel guests?

The breakfast buffet was ok, not the best I've had, but certainly not the worst. There was a good cold selection (with PASTRIES!), but the warm selection was small and fairly boring, some sad bacon, sausages and fried eggs. There were omelettes to order, though. The breakfast room was beautiful, inside the Café Mozart, and the staff really nice and friendly.

So, pros and cons.

Pros: Beautiful old building, luxurious rooms, nice and helpful staff, walk out the door and you're at Old Town Square.

Cons: Few electrical outlets, no on-site-smoking area, noise from the Old Town Square at night.

All in all, we were very happy with our stay at the Grand Hotel Praha, and would certainly come back if we return to Prague.

Room Tip: We lived in room 101, second floor in the historical building. If you have a problem with stairs, ma...

We stayed here for 2 nights, just returning home this week. The hotel is as good as advertised and the location can't be beat. What puts the Grand Praha in a class by itself is the outstanding service by the hotel staff. It was easily the best service of any hotel we stayed in in Europe. Our reservation came with breakfast which was a full buffet with a varied selection. It was exciting to see all the activity and energy that is generated at the clock and in the old town square. We would definitely go back to the Grand Praha.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new section are accessible by lift, but are not in the old section. The walk to the ro...

My husband reserved our room overlooking the astronomical clock here in Prague as a surprise to me for my birthday, which we were celebrating on this trip. From beginning to end, this hotel has been lovely. The location is ideal, our room (#210) is large and comfortable, and the stay has been nearly flawless. I don't know what they have in their bathroom filtration system, but it constantly smells of peaches -- very nice! The breakfast is quite good with a range of selections and the staff has been great. Probably the only slight complaint we have is that the shower is of the hand-held variety, and the hook to hold it didn't work properly, so showering was a bit of a pain because of that. Otherwise, would highly recommend this hotel and this room. Visitors do need to be aware that if they are in a room overlooking the clock tower, the crowds and the noise can get to be a nuisance. But I am a people watcher and loved seeing the congregation of visitors from all over the world to wait for the hourly striking. A beautiful experience!!

Room Tip: See my comments about room #210 and noise levels for the clock viewing. I loved it, but others may...

Stayed here for 3 nights in May if you want to be right where it all happens you must stay here it is the best location you could be in, we had a room overlooking the astonomical clock, room was a good size, bed hard, bathroom clean but out of the 11 countries on this trip it is without doubt the worst shower we have ever had the shower head is a hand held only and the holder is half way up the shower wall so if you want to put it on the wall to use your hands to wash yourself then you will have to bend your knees to be able to get under the hand held shower head, bizzare, never seen anything like it before. Breakfast was not good with very little choice but 4 star its probably expected. Room furniture is old but in good condition we would stay here again because of the location, the astronomical clock show stops at 10 pm each night and after that is chimes every so often, Im a very very very light sleeper and in 3 nights I only heard the clock twice at night.

We just returned from our trip to Europe which included a three-night stay at the Grand Hotel Praha. We had a superior second-floor room which gave us a perfect view of the Astronomical Clock. Because of the number of people who come to take photos of the clock, I was concerned about noise in our room; however, the room had double windows, so noise was not a problem. Our superior room had a bathroom with a sink and bathtub and the second bathroom had a shower and toilet. This was quite convenient as our daughter was traveling with us. Beds were extremely comfortable. Housekeeping was excellent and breakfast is served in an attractive dining area: cooked eggs, hams, cheeses, yoghurts, granolas of various types, juices, coffees, teas etc.
As mentioned in a previous review, since the hotel is set back in the main plaza, taxis cannot arrive at the front door of the hotel and it is necessary to roll baggage about 100 ft. However, the hotel offers an airport pick-up service for $30 Euros which would solve the problem. On the day of our check-out, the hotel took our luggage to the taxi area.
In all, we had a pleasant stay at the Grand Hotel Praha and I would recommend this hotel which is quaint and furnished with antique furniture.

Room Tip: The Grand Deluxe room was an excellent choice since we were travelilng with our adult daughter.
