“A different experience”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

My wife and I had a wonderful stay here. We paid for an executive room with wood panelled walls and 2 leather armchairs. The window view over the river was very nice in the evening with the lights of the restaurants etc showing at night. The room was always clean and the staff very helpful, even providing my wife with a vase to hold some flowers. We did not notice any noise and the boat is very stable, only swaying a little bit when another boat passed by but this was not often. The shower was clean and everything worked as it should. I would stay there again tomorrow without hesitation.

Room Tip: River view rooms are best.

Had a great stay at Botel Matylda!

Room was on the small side but was given a room overlooking the river as requested.
Location is great as only a 15 minute walk to Wenceslas square

Would not hesitate to stay again!

Also make sure you book a taxi to the airport through the hotel as the company they use are by far the cheapest

The botel was very charming and lovely, clean and shower was amazing. Only thing we were disappointed with was there was no coffee station in the room and the breakfast staff could have been a bit friendlier, but the food was great and the evening waiters were good. Would definetly recommend and will visit again!

we paid extra to upgrade the room type to "Superior Double Room" for river view but what I got is "street view" and the reason is "I didn't request for river view". Yes, you paid for the city and river view and it has to be confirmed by request, and it's first come first serve". On the hotel.com advertisement that Superior Double Room provides "city and river view" but it is fraud! we complained to this hotel, and what I got the answer is "Sorry, river view rooms are fully booked", no further rearrangement is given, or, you have to pay for extra upgrade to another room type. Besides, the hotel car park is messy, only few car parks are available, or you will have to "double parking" and leaving the car key to the hotel, if you refuse so, you are not allow parking there!!! Overall, I wouldn't recommend to this hotel because the service and management are messy, you could have many better choices at this price range

Room Tip: room is small. and standard room is even worse.

Like staying in a regular hotel ON the river. Had a good room with air-condition, chairs, big work desk, wardrobe and good bathroom. Free parking. Very quiet. Good service.
Somewhat expensive for the general standard.

I've stayed here twice now. Once in a single room and once in an executive double. Both appeared to have identical bathrooms, but what the single lacked in space (no chair) is made up for with charm! The quality of the decor is wonderful. One feels like a luxury traveller from a different era.

Breakfast is good, as is the wine menu and views from the dining tables.

You are only 10-15 minutes’ walk from the main tourist area of Prague, and like all of Prague, it is perfectly safe to walk around in the evening.. lots of other tourists and visible (friendly) Police.

There is car parking right next to the boat too - bonus in Prague!

On my first visit to Prague a very long time ago, I remembered staying on a boat. Coming back to Prague for the fourth time, this one with my husband and friend, I wanted to share the experience of being on the river with them. I found the Botel Matylda via Tripadvisor and I am very glad I did.

The rooms are comfortable: on the top deck the main ones have a double doors, while the ones on the lower deck have only smaller windows. When booking make sure you ask for a room with a view of the river, otherwise you get the quay and its passerby crowd. The room we had was on the small side, it lacked a table; while our friend room was one of the larger one and had plenty of space (room 10 vs room 20).
The location is ideal: close enough to the center by foot or tramway.
The staff is very efficient and responsive.

The second boat is where you have your breakfast and where you can have lunch or dinner. If the breakfast is acceptable, the offerings for lunch or dinner are varied and excellent whatever you end up with.
Instead of staying inside, try the outside tables on the boat or the floating dock (better) between the two boats if the weather permits.
