“baroque buildings near Prague Castle”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

I chose this hotel mainly because of its location - very near Prague Castle, that dominates the steep hill overlooking central Prague. The hotel exceeded my expectations.
Two baroque buildings on opposite sides of the main street leading to the castle comprise the hotel. The breakfast room is in the building we stayed in. We stayed four nights, in mid-October.
The room we were given on the second floor was very large. It had three sets of double windows, overlooking the street. The room had a wonderfully restored beamed ceiling painted in the baroque era with garlands of leaves. There was a king-size four-poster bed. A matching set of two carved and gilded armchairs, a couch and four straight chairs furnished the room, which also had a counter equipped as a small kitchen. The brightly tiled marble bathroom included a full-size bath, telephone shower - but no place to attach it to the wall for a shower -
a small and awkward sink to use, and a bidet. There was plenty of hot water. Towels were changed daily, but curiously, the bed was not made daily.
Despite the minor irritations of the phone shower and the sink, we were more than satisfied with the room.
The location of the hotel makes for a short walk uphill to Prague Castle, which one could visit several times to see the many buildings and lanes of the castle grounds, as well as the imposing gothic St Vitus cathedral. Staying nearby, it was also convenient to visit at night, when the main buildings are dramatically illuminated.
Also nearby is the imposing compound of the Strahov monastery, with its dramatic onion domes and its two wonderfully restored libraries. In good weather, there is a terrace restaurant with unparalleled views of Prague spread out below, and the castle spires nearby.
The breakfast buffet at The Green Lobster was very carefully maintained by a friendly staff. The buffet included two types of excellent yoghurt, along with many hot and cold offerings - and surprisingly good quality coffee.
The front desk staff of the hotel were consistently friendly and helpful, making hotel guests feel more like welcome house guests.
I not only thought that the room, the breakfast service, the hotel ambience and the staff were terrific, I also thought the room charge was very modest for the quality of what is offered.
Since the hotel is a historic building, and has been restored in keeping with its history, there is no elevator. People who have limitations walking up flights of stairs need to take this into consideration.
I would be very happy to stay at The Green Lobster again - and highly recommend it.

We came back from the Green Lobster only last weekend after a fantastic 5 days in Prague celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. We couldn't say enough good about the hotel, especially as we found we had been upgraded to an executive suite over the road on our arrival. Our room (Rudolf II) was totally lush and the bed just tooooo comfortable to leave each morning.The hotel porters, receptionists and waitresses were very pleasant and we were set up each morning with a good selection of breakfast food, both hot and cold, to get us through the day. The hotel is situated in an ideal spot just below Prague castle and we had plenty of interesting places to visit on foot within easy walking distance.
Our room was cleaned very well each day and we felt no intrusion or any wish to hurry us out of the room at any time during our visit. We were also provided with a room to store our luggage on the last day before our evening flight.
Thankyou to Green Lobster/Bijou hotel for our truly memorable stay in the lovely City of Prague. We shall definately return.

We were staying in the second floor of the main building and very dissatisfied with the hotel.

We booked a double room and our 'double bed' were in fact two single beds put together which kept sliding apart throughout the night, creating a space in the middle, hardly making up for a good night's sleep.

The walls of our room were paper thin so we got guests from neighbouring room banging on our wall when we were talking in normal voice in the room at night and could not sleep well in the morning because this time it was them talking and we could hear them clearly.

We complained about both cases in the morning during check out and the management promised to contact us back to resolve the issue. We never heard back from them and after contacting them again, they only offered us a discount on a next stay - not in a thousand years!

All in all, if you are looking for a relaxing break in Prague, I think there are many more hotels in the same historical location better than this one.

I understand the hotel is made out from an historical building but then you don't really perceive this history in your room.
The bathroom was really poor for a 4 stars hotel.

Moreover we could not see on TV any Italian Channel, although present on ASTRA sat, we made a complaint on this to the hotel but even after the coming of an hotel employee nothing changed.

I general the overall rating is poor. The lacking of Euro in the country makes tourists life more convenient compared to other Euro/countries.

This review is on room at 2nd floor but don't rembember exactly the room number

Dear Valued Guest,
thank you for your feedback about your stay.
We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay and our Hotel Green Lobster was not meeting your expectations.
The building belongs to the XIV century and it was refurbished carefully trying to keep its original atmosphere. Some of the rooms have still original hand painted decoration on ceilings. The design and style of each rooms were studied to express its old and historical charme and giving in addition the maximum comfort to our guests and we are sorry if you had a different or "cold" feeling.
I would like also to apologize for the satellite tv issue and we will try to solve it soon in order to improve the service for future guests.
We thank yoiu for your important and sincere contribution and we hope you could reconsider our Hotel in the future.
Best regards,

Having been to Prague on 3 occasions now, we knew we liked the castle area more than the bustling centre. The hotel is just what we were looking for and certainly lived up to our expectations, apart from its a little noisy on the street outside; which is no fault of the hotel. There were also roadworks taking place during our stay which meant we were being woken at 7am!!! Breakfast was great; don't know why people have been complaining. Lots of lovely restaurants close by and only a 5 min walk to the castle. What more could you ask for!

Wonderful hotel, we stayed at the Green Lobster for 3 nights and felt great - the room was spotlessly clean, spacious, with large and very comfortable bed, beautiful baroque furniture, all the stuff - very kind and helpful, the breakfast was rich and tasty. The location is great - 5 mins to the Castle and 10 to Charles Bridge (although the steep street - well, when you are very tired it is a little bit difficult to climb up, but this is nothing considering all the positive emotions that we collected in Prague). We would definitely stay there again without hesitation and would recommend the hotel to everyone.

Dear Valued Guest,
thank you for posting such a nice feedback from your stay in our Hotel Green Lobster!
We were absolutely delighted to read that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay. We pride ourselves on the service and facilities we provide our guests and this is only made possible by the great team we have at Garzotto Hotels & Resorts.
We are happy you enjoyed the location, we understand that walking up the Nerudova Street after all day sightseeing might be tiring, this is way during the day we suggest our guests to take tram no. 22 to the stop Prazsky Hrad and walk through the Castle area, which is by the way stunning at sunset and give you the chance to enjoy wonderful views of the city.
We hope to welcome you back soon and for future inquiries do not hesitate to contact us.
Best regards,

The location is just at the castle area, 5min walk to the old castle, only problem is you have to carry your luggage up 500m from the tram station and the macadam road is a nightmare for your trolley suitcase.
Another problem is that there is no kettle in the room nor the public area, I would like to drink some hot water after a whole day's tourist and it was just impossible!
Everything else is just fine. Nice breakfast.

Room Tip: wifi is too weak to use on the 4th floor.

Dear Valued Guest,
we are glad that you chose to stay with us.
The Hotel is located on the hill very close to the Castle, which means that it can tiring to walk up the street with luggage, this is the reason why we suggest our guest also an alternative in order to avoid it: get off at the stop Prazsky Hrad with the tram no. 22 and cross all the Castle area. In this way it is much easier most of all with luggages. For this information, please do not hesitate to contact us in advance and next time we will suggest you the easiest and most comfortable way according to your needs and specifications.
We do not have electric kettle in the Hotel Green Lobster, but if you would like to have it at your next visit, we suggest you the executive rooms which are located in the building in front of the Green Lobster - these rooms are in fact provided with the kettle and tea/coffee making facilities. Contact us for details, we will be happy to assist you in making the perfect choice for your stay.
We hope that you will come back and visit us and this beautiful city in the near future.
