“Best in Prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2008

I have been to Prague a number of times and this is the best budget hotel i have stayed in. The Hotel building and presentation is to a high standerd the room No 33 was large and clean. TV had two english channels Eurosport and CNN. Double glazing and heating worked well, to well for me and I had to keep the window open which increased the noise from tram on the main road. No city center otel is going to be quite anf the St John is a lot better than many in Prague.
Hotel staff efficant and polite with good english, plenty of near by places to eat at very good prices.
If you want the Metro turn right outside the hotel and keep going straight, do not turn left down hill at main junction keep going 100 yards and there are two entrances not shown on my map.
Breakfast despite some reviews is more than adequte cheeses meat rolls and breads, Muselli, Cornflake, Yougart, Jams and fresh fruit plus tea and cofee, Typiical Euro fare and with plenty of choice.
Really enjoyed my stay and will be using again next year

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.

  • Liked — The cleanliness and quiet
  • Disliked — Maybe a little out of the way

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.
