My husband booked this for our 1st night in Prague for my birthday weekend. We had reserved a table for 8.30pm prior to arriving in Prague. We were promptly taken to our booth table which had a lovely view of the river and was very romantic with the dimmed lights and candles. The waiter was on hand to tell us about the food and advise us. We ordered 3 starters to share between the 2 of us as we couldn't decide! We had the buffalo mozzarella with parma ham, rocket and dried tomatoes which was absolutely delicious and my favourite of the starters. We also had the beef tenderloin with pesto, ricotta and parmesan which was my husbands favourite. Our third starter was the salmon tartar, this out of the three was our least favourite although there was nothing wrong with it, it didn't wow us, however we still ate it all! For our main courses I had the venison special which came with the creamiest mashed potato I have ever eaten, the meat was ridiculously tender and just melted in your mouth. My husband had the lamb shank which was just as delicious and we cleared the plates! For dessert I had the pannacotta which sometimes can be very bland but this one was lovely and creamy with a nice hint of vanilla and a tasty strawberry sauce. My husband had the tiramisu which he very much enjoyed. Overall we paid £67.26 not inc a tip, for 3 starters, 2 main courses and 2 side dishes, 2 desserts, 2 beers, 2 glasses of wine and a lemonade which we thought was fantastic value especially coupled with the brilliant service and fantastic views.

All four of us in our party loved the experience of staying on a wonderful boat in Prague, in a central location close to old town and with a view of the Prague castle . We had single and double rooms on two different boats that are right next to each other. One of them houses the single rooms, it seemed, and the other the bigger ones as well as the restaurant.
The rooms had a lot of atmosphere with cherry wood paneling and a big comfortable beds with amenities you expect from a high quality hotel. After traveling throughout Eastern Europe , the welcoming rainforest shower was a real treat. The only thing I would change next time is the location of our double room ,which ended up below the restaurant's bar area and we heard noise from there until they closed the restaurant.
The staff was extremely helpful, especially the young Iranian/Czech woman at the front desk.
Our waiter at the restaurant, Mike was also exceptional . The food was of good quality , Italian,but definitely expensive.A dinner for four of us with two appetizers and main courses including beers and some liquor came to around $120.
Breakfast was good , typical continental plus eggs and meats.
Location is excellent with parking and a lot of sites are a 20-40 minutes walk.
If you are looking for a different hotel experience, this is it without sacrificing comfort and luxury.

Room Tip: Stay on the boat( Klotylda) that is the reception area and not the restaurant.

This hotel lived up to my expectations. The boat is really cute and well kept, provides a view of the river that is priceless. The rooms are well kept and look like old times boat cabines: small, dark wood. Bed is comfortale and shower is quite good. I only think the rooms could have more light, they are quite dark. So, great for vacations, not so good if you´re traveling on business.
Location is perfect and resturant in the next boat is really good. If you drive there, there is parking, which is a plus.
It´s a different experience, totally worth it. I found the value very good as well.
But be aware to ask for a river facing room, otherwise, no reason to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Definetly ask for a room with river view, otherwise ´no reason to stay in this hotel.

Hotel Matylda is a floating boat , it doesn't move at all but conveniently positioned. The suite we had was stunning and very spacious . Beds were very comfortable and room all in wood. Be careful when travelling from airport as the taxi can rip you off. There is a standard fee you should pay. Highly recommend this for accomodation in Prague and would go back. Must try get a suite , only 2 on board.

Room Tip: Suites are recommended

We were in Prague for 2 nights and this hotel was perfect for us! The rooms are extremely tight, so if you are planning on an extended stay, pack lightly! Perfectly located to all the main attractions. Great breakfast with a beautiful view.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the river side. If you are on the street side it can be a little loud.

We stayed in this hotel for our last night in Prague and expected sonething special. We ended up with a small room facing sidewalk wall and trash bins! There is 50% chance to get river view which might wirth the money otherwise you can find much cheaper hotels in the city with better location .
