“Nice, cheap, but noisy”
Reviewed 26 April 2007

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.

Very clean (almost new), well located for walking or tram. Easy walk from Wenceslas Square. Very kind and knowledgeable staff: Shaka, Eva, and Theresa were perfect! They also had locked parking! A real find. Very quiet area.

I stayed here for a weekend in December

The hotel was much better than I had hoped, for from the moment we got there I found everyone who worked here exceptionally friendly and efficient.
The staff gave us great reccommendations for restaurants and took the time to look up on the internet for specific directions if they didnt know them

The room was lovely spotlessly clean and huge
We overlooked churches from the windows in the room .
Only negatives I could see were that the shower was just suspended just above the bath taps and the tram noise might irritate .

Breakfast was fine hams cheeses breads coffees etc
To get to the hotel is very easy from public transport too
Take bus 100 to Zličín then get a train to Karlovo náměstí
coming out of the station facing the square turn right walk down about 100 metres and the hotel gate is on your left after a church
See details on

We walked everywhere from there as my poor wrecked feet can testify
Also the hotel seems to have more reviews here

Stayed two nights in this wonderful hotel we found thanks to Trip Advisor. There was good heating facilities, very big and comfortable room with comfy mattresses and pillows. The hotel was spotless clean, and the staff was very friendly and helpful, they would answer any question we may have and spoke English but not so good.
One of the best things was that the bathroom had a tub and towel heater (we even could wash and dry all our clothes!).
There was a full buffet breakfast with bread, fruits, jam, cheese, tea, coffee, toaster, marmalades, etc.
The noise from the street wasn't that disturbing, mostly because of the double windows.
Less than 200 meters away there is the Karlovo Namesti subway station and square from which you can reach the most important touristic attractions in a matter of minutes.
However, the surrounding area was a bit dark at night and it gave the feeling (mostly because of the high walls of the church) that no one walked around there. It's not a very lively area, but I guess it's not so important when you are out all day on tour!

Overall, a great choice for around 50 euro, with breakfast and taxes included!

  • Liked — comfy matresses, big rooms
  • Disliked — not so lively surroundings
  • Tips/Secrets — Always use the subway, never the taxis!!

Great value for money hotel very close to central attractions.
Clean, bright and spacious rooms, very comfortable beds with duvets and pillows by Habitat. Staff are very friendly and efficient.
Great little restaurant/pub around the corner. Tram and Metro stops nearby. All in all, a bargain for the price and I strongly recommend it.

  • Liked — Value
  • Disliked — No tea/coffee in room
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask to stay in rear of hotel as very light sleepers may have problems with trams.
