Reviewed 8 December 2013

Our first trip to Prague and booked the Hotel General based on the reviews and what a great choice. Reception staff very welcoming, much appreciated welcome drink, then help and advice with the sites to see, transport and maps.

The breakfast food was delicious, great cooked choices on top of a lovely hot and cold buffet selection. The service was excellent, the serving staff very friendly and helpful.

Not sure whether they spotted it was my birthday based on the registration card, but a lovely surprise to come back to flowers in the room, ‘swan’ towels and a bottle of wine from the Management Team!

Good local food and bars near the hotel too.

We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Coming from Indonesia, I am used to domestic pampering . Hotel General match that with their
warmth and amazing teamwork. I get this feeling that all the staffs meet and discuss how to make their guests happy every night ! From adding halal meals to reminding me about taxi pick up. 1st class service ! Will only stay in Hotel General when I am in Prague for winter holidays.

A comfortable place to stay, everything was fine. I was traveling alone and it was my first time to Prague, and I got a lot of help from the staff. I'm sure I will stay at this hotel if I go to Prague again. Thank you, Pavel. Thank you, Martin. Thank you, Marian. Thank you, Rami. You deserve the five stars. vy ctyri jste nejlepsi~ (^o^)

We can't say enough good things about our wonderful experience at the Hotel General. The welcome drink and orientation was so appreciated after a long day of traveling, as was the bottle of wine on our departure. Breakfasts were superb with a nice buffet and additional entrée of your choice. Waiters were always pleasant, attentive, and efficient. We ate dinner in the restaurant the first night and it was a very memorable experience with candlelight and excellent food, especially the apple strudel--the best we've ever had! The service was perfect and the waiter, Ibrahm, made us feel special. The front desk was fantastic and very knowledgeable. They helped us with tickets for concerts and hockey games, explained how to get where we wanted to go, made restaurant reservations for us, and had excellent suggestions for restaurants. We especially liked the location of the hotel since it was close to both the metro and numerous tram stops. We were able to get to all parts of the city easily because so many trams went through the Andel stop. The front desk explains what transportation you need and marks everything on the map. They make it effortless to get around on your own. A Mall is also located at the stop where we could purchase things we needed. Since it was the time for Christmas Markets, every time we used the metro and trams we could go through the local Market and taste all the wonderful foods and drinks available. Often in the evening there was music being played and we found this Christmas Market so much more enjoyable than the ones in the really touristy areas that were so crowded--this one was all locals and they enjoyed explaining what it was we were eating or drinking. We would definitely recommend staying at this lovely hotel and hope we have the opportunity to return and enjoy its attentive hospitality again.

I'm talking about the review, not the hotel. We stayed for almost a week in August. I wish we had a hotel like this to look forward to in every city we visit. Service and lodgings were first rate. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, ensuring that our first visit to their city exceeded our expectations. We enjoy exploring a city on foot and found the hotel's location apt for that purpose.

My husband & I stayed for 4 nights at the end of November 2013. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty, I kid you not. In this hotel, it is obvious that the guest is king. Nothing was too much trouble. The welcome drink was lovely and the general information given when we checked in was very informative. The room was beautiful, spotless and obviously very well maintained, just a little bit hot for me but most people like the heat. The breakfast was substantial, everything one could want and more. The bar is so cosy but not many people there when we stayed. Vicky and her colleagues at reception couldn't do enough to help us with any queries we had. On our last evening there, we came back to our room to a lovely surprise - a bottle of wine, 2 glasses and a lovely note thanking us for staying in the hotel! There are not too many hotels of this calibre out there - stay there if you get a chance but it will spoil you for any other hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed on 3rd floor facing the front - a bit noisy if you left the window open (I like fresh air...

Rooms are quite compact but are immaculately maintained and very clean. Tea and coffee facilities in the rooms are good and when we requested some milk as only powdered available on the tray a waiter appeared at our door with a jug within seconds! Huge bath and good shower with plenty of complimentary toiletries. Public areas are all lovely. The staff are amazing and all go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need and that you enjoy your stay. The manager spoke to us at breakfast every morning to ask if everything ok. The lady on reception was very informative and supplied us with a map of the city and we also booked a walking tour of the city with her. The waiters/chef/barman were all brilliant and would go out of their way to ensure everything perfect for you. Location of the hotel is quite a distance from main town but we did walk there and back without any difficulty and plenty of interesting things to see along the route into town. All in all a very enjoyable and memorable stay, Would definitely recommend a stay in this lovely hotel with its very attentive staff.
