Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Certovka is on the same side of the river as the castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, and admirers of Charles Bridge will also be happy here, as it can be seen from some of the hotel windows. It enjoys a very good location, offers a modest range of amenities and its rooms, which are decorated in a classic, cosy style, are small.

    Location 7.15 /10

    The Certovka is just next to the Vltava river, in the Mala Strana district, which is just over the water from the Old Town. Admirers of Charles Bridge will struggle to find a better place to stay, because the hotel is right next to this landmark, and the rooms overlooking this side of the street have direct views of it. Despite the crowds of tourists in this area, the hotel is in a picturesque little cobbled alley, away from all the noise. Nevertheless, there are restaurants, bars and souvenir shops very close to the hotel, so you are no distance at all from all the creature comforts you may require. The metro and tramway are 5 minutes away.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The hotel's 21 guest rooms are all in the standard category. The hotel has 5 rooms for solo travellers. The welcoming decor is a combination of the classic and the sophisticated, including a thick carpet, heavy curtains framing the windows, and comfortable wood furniture. The dimensions of the rooms are modest, but they offer a reasonable range of amenities, including individual air-conditioning, a mini-bar, a CRT television showing many foreign channels, and a free Wi-Fi Internet connection. Unfortunately, though, the hotel does not offer room service. Some of the rooms overlook the sides of Charles Bridge, and they have lots of windows to let in plenty of light. The bathrooms are small but clean and new, and most of them are provided with a shower. We would recommend, though, that you ask for one with a window. Two rooms are provided for guests with disabilities.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The hotel is in a simple house with light coloured walls. From the entrance, the reception counter is set to the left, and the little lobby provides access to the breakfast room. The display case full of traditional glassware, the antique furniture and some flowers bring some character to this room, which otherwise feels a bit inhospitable, no doubt due to the tiled floor and whiter-than-white walls. Upstairs, access to the guest rooms is quick and easy.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The modestly sized breakfast room is a pretty space next to the reception, on the ground floor. It can seat up to 25 guests and serves breakfast from 7:00am until 10:30am. Its many windows overlook the street and the atmosphere here is cosy, perfect for enjoying a full meal with fruit juices, cereals, various different breads, cakes and hot dishes. Breakfast is included in the room price.

    To know

    Most of the guests staying at the hotel are Russian.

      If you already know Prague and don't want to stay in the town centre (Wenceslas Square), too noisy to your taste, try this hotel in Mala Strana. Its location is quite convenient for a visit to the Castle quarter on foot. If you dislike walking (because the area is a little bit sloped), trams pass just outside the hotel.

      • Location 6.97

      Located on a pretty little paved square with a peaceful little garden, the U Pava is something of a Baroque establishment where everyone plays a part in its history. The decor here is like something out of a fairy tale but with a touch of kitsch thrown in, resulting in soft, shadowy light, and a busy decor. The U Pava might not have the most comprehensive list of amenities to offer, but is a romantic destination with a lot of character. Do bear in mind, though, that since there is no lift it's not the best place for those with reduced mobility.

      The House of Red Lion is a friendly, family-run hotel located near Mala Strana, a stone's throw from the castle and St. Vitus Cathedral. Don't expect to find yourself surrounded by the latest decorative features, because the ambiance here feels more like that of a family guest house. It is well looked after, and offers decent accommodation options for families.

      Remember the name of this hotel: you will definitely want to return, at least to dine. Because even if this hotel is not the best in its class, its dinner menu is unusual (steaks of all kinds). As for the rooms, they are pleasant if you love old style; nevertheless, the hotel is well situated.

      The Mandarin Oriental, one of the best establishments in the city, has the advantage of being located away from the crowds of tourists but is still close to some of the must-see sights. The setting is historical and the services luxurious, true, but this haven of peace and quiet for the more fortunate has a certain austerity that feels a bit cold.

      Located on the side of the Mala Strana, and a stone's throw from the Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, the Neruda is a pretty establishment. Here, we recommend the accommodation units that occupy the more recent building. This is a modern establishment built around a covered and furnished interior courtyard. However, one down side is that you have to climb the entire upward sloping Neruda street before you can finally set down your luggage.

      It's not only sleek good looks that make the Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague a hit - it's also the discreet service, attention to detail and central location that make it one of city's top places to stay. The very first hotel to come from the Buddha-Bar brand (following a successful global franchise) was not launched in Paris, New York or even Dubai, but Prague - where history and beauty come together to create an impossibly romantic setting. Every lovers' getaway needs the hotel to match...and we've found it in this exclusive boutique offering.

      A former bank headquarters and part of a Italian hotel chain, with neo-Renaissance decor and facilities of a palace: the Carlo IV hotel is one of the most prestigious addresses in Prague. Those who already know the Boscolo hotels - having stayed at the Dei Dogi in Venetia or the Exedra in Rome - would choose this hotel with their eyes closed.

      The Ventana hotel is ideally located at the heart of the Old Town and is a charming little place providing high-quality, low-capacity accommodation. The modern and elegant decor of this uncharacteristic hotel is sure to win you over, particularly when you take into account the original facilities, which include Duplex rooms which can accommodate up to 4 people and afford beautiful views across the rooftops of the city. If we had to find fault, it would be that the minimalist decor in the guest rooms leaves them rather characterless.
