Hotel u Svateho Jana
Ranked #301 of 647 Hotels in Prague
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2008

Svaty Jan is in a good location to see both the old and new parts of the city as it is sited close to both the metro and tram routes. The hotel - a former vicarage to the large church next door - is exceptionally clean, the staff are friendly and speak good english. Rooms are basic but comfortable (if you like firm beds!) and the beds are spacious. Breakfast is good, offering a wide choice of both english and continental food to which you just help yourself.

The only down side for us was the noise of the trams which run frequently most of the day and night. Once you have got used to this though it is fine.

We shall definitely stay at Svaty Jan again as it offers good value for money. Travellers shoud note that the hotel is situated on a hill, so not so good for anyone with mobility problems.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Prague and will certainly be returning at some point. The hotel I stayed at was very clean and the staff on reception were helpful and friendly. There was a good selection of food at breakfast time and I felt very confident about the security of the hotel with the locked gate. I would be happy to stay at St. John’s again. It would have been interesting to have known more about the hotel and what it had been in the past.
When I return to Prague it is likely I would stay more central and maybe look at renting an apartment, I will see.
I travelled with PragueDiscountHotels.com. They have wide range of hotels and reasonable prices, so everyone can choose.

We had a quadruple room which was very spacious with a separate bedroom. It was basic but very clean. On the downside, there is no kettle, only English channel was CNN, the bath/shower had no shower curtain and there was no fridge. Having no fridge was no real issue as we put our perishables in between the double glazing and it worked great!

The receptionists were very pleasant and spoke enough English to satisfy our needs. They were very helpful.

It is located close to a UBahn and a 24 hr ticket for all transports was 90CZ. It was a 15 minute walk into the city centre and we easily walked to Prague Castle. There is a supermarket close by - on the left as you walk into the city.

Car parking is available but you should book a space. Also, don't take too big a car as to get to the parking area you need to go through a gate which is quite narrow.

It was a continental breakfast with cereals, bread, cheese, ham, fruits, jams, yoghurt, tea and coffee. It was a buffet and you help yourself. We thought the breakfast was quite adequate.

I stayed here with my mother in January and we couldn't fault it. It does have many stairs, so elderly or slightly immobile people should consider this. Breakfast is sparse but adequate, and the rooms are neutral but clean and well appointed, some have baths, others just showers.
The location is lovely, and the tram services and metro of Karlovy Namesti is located nearby.
The Internet service is good, although the keyboard can take some getting used to.

Nice little hotel. Central, a 5min walk and you have all the trams as subways you whant.

Prices are below average, rooms are big and nice but some rooms are noisy because of the trams that run right by the hotel.

Impossible to black out room because curtains are too thin, but anyway, you should wake up early and visit the city, nos sleep all day!

Breakfast is normal.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in April. We were very happy with this accomodation.

It is eay to get to by bus and metro from the airport. The management was friendly and helpful.

The rooms are large, spotless and quiet. The bathroom is also large with bathtub and handheld shower.

The breakfast is buffet style - a large selection of things to eat.

We were very impressed with this hotel - for the price, it is really great value.

Got a good deal through one of the Czech websites. February is not a popular time in Prague! The room was spacious and very clean. The sheets were good quality and spotless. The hotel has fitted two sets of windows to keep the noise down (trams). However, we slept with these open at night and it was fine. The water pressure is good, lots of hot water, but the shower head is one of those handheld types. It would have been nice to have a 'proper' shower but it didn't really matter. Breakfast is OK but nothing special. It was regularly restocked and things were fresh - ham, salami, cheese, etc.

The Old Town is approximately fifteen minutes walk so although the location is not absolutely ideal, the hotel is situate in a 'safe' feeling area and is worth it in terms of trading price for convenience. We found a few local bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity which were fine.

The reception staff were friendly and efficient. We didn't ask for much assistance but you got the impression that it woud be available if you needed it.

We wanted a inexpensive break in Prague and got one. The hotel is very good value for money and a nice place to stay. It is near enough to the Old Town and convenient for public transport if you don't want to walk the fifteen minutes. We would stay here again and probably will.
