Albion Hotel
Ranked #602 of 646 Hotels in Prague
Reviewed 28 April 2013

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights from 20th of April to 23rd of April; we were 3 people.

Rooms: Our room was extremely big. The beds were comfortable and the linen was clean. However the extra bed they put in such a big room was ridiculously tiny and thin. They should replace it with a decent single bed. All in all, the whole room was clean and proper. However, the whole room was quite old. The walls, the windows, and the carpet – they weren’t falling apart or so but they looked very old. There were only towels, soap and hair dryer provided in the bathroom and nothing else – this seemed a bit strange for a 4 star hotel. There was no mini-bar, no safe, no wifi in the room. If this hotel had 2 or 3 stars, I would not mind so much but from a 4 star hotel I would expect more.

Hotel: this is a hotel for big (student) groups. So sometimes you might hear some noise at night, dozens of students checking in or so.

Location: The hotel was located a bit outside of the city center however the public transportation is quite convenient in Prague and there’s a bus line a few meters away from the hotel. You can get in to the city in about 20 minutes without any kind of problem. However, purchase your tickets in advance before you get to the hotel otherwise you will have to purchase them in the bus which costs a bit more.

Food: We just had breakfast in the hotel. I have no clue about the lunch and dinner. The breakfast is pretty basic: 2 kinds of cheese, 3 kinds of ham, cornflakes, milk, tea, coffee, 3 types of jam, 3 – 4 types of cakes, yoghurt, fruit-yoghurt, scrambled eggs, sausage and 3 types of bread are available on the breakfast buffet. It is a big hotel visited by big groups of people; however we didn’t have to wait in line to get breakfast or so. Everything went quite smooth.

Free internet access: only available at the lobby

A hotel that dates back to the times when iron curtain was still hung over Prague welcomes you in the 5th district - 15 minutes drive from city centre by car. It does not seem that far but it actually is if you are visiting for the first time. The best way to travel to the centre is by taxy (you must not pay over 15 Euro - 380-400 Czech Korunas).

Rooms are modest at best (mini bar was missing from the cabinet). There was only one table light working, so the atmosphere was a bit depressing. Everything is really basic.

Service is another weak point of the hotel - breakfast is served with essentials, do not expect any treats like fried eggs.

Overall a hotel not worth visiting. If you are on a budget I would suggest a hostel.

The Hotel Albion is the worst hotel in the world I ever stayed. They rip you off when they get the chance. They do it at the exchange rates, when you order a taxi, at the dinner, at the breakfast, when you pay the room. Beware, do not go there. Even if you think its cheap or you get a good deal. Stay away!

You can sleep over in this hotel a couple of nights, but that is all. The rooms need repairing and the food in the reustaurant is terrible. Breakfast is more or less OK. This is far from a 4-star hotel, 1-2 stars would be more accurate. We were "upgraded" to this hotel from Hotel Golf, where we had reservations and also had pre-paid half of the prices. Hotel Golf, which is only 3 star hotel seemed to be much nicer but this "upgrade" which they did to us was not a nice thing to do...

I will be staying in Albion Hotel this November for the second time.First time I was more that satisfied with the room, which was big enough and perfectly clean.The breakfast was just fine too.The only disadvantage is that it is a bit far from the historic center,but bus number 137(bus stop 150m from the hotel) will take you to Andel metro station and from there it' 3 stops to Wenceslas Square.All in all, I spent great time in this hotel, that's why I booked it again this year.

We were part of a bus tour of Bantam hockey players and parents. We were fortunate enough to get an upgrade and were most satisfied with our room and its amenities. WiFi worked well. There were times when the breakfast buffet got disorganized, but aside from that we were most pleased with our stay. It is some distance from downtown and one has to be careful of taxi rates that can triple if you happen to choose an independent.

If you are staying just for a night the hotel is ok. But if you are considering to stay in a hotel for a few days, don't. The hotel staff has double standards for guests, i.e. students are treated as huligans but "adult" guests are welcomed although they are too noisy and don't respect the working hours of the restaurant and terrace. During our stay some of the valuables were stolen from the room and the staff reacted as if we were responsible for theft. And the rooms are too clean.

Dear Annarouche,

we are really very sorry that this happened to you in our hotel. To avoid such a disagreeable situation our staff strongly recommend to leave all the valuables in the reception in a hotel safe. We do hope that nevertheless of this your stay in Prague was nice.
