Sleeping, eating, walking: if these three activities fill up your weekend, choose this hotel. You will spend comfortable nights, close to the historic centre. And even if we wanted to honour the quality of meals, impossible, as the hotel serves only breakfast.

    Location 7.76 /10

    This hotel is located in the very heart of Prague, on Hastalska. The Old Town Square is 10 minutes away on foot, the Charles Bridge is 15 minutes away. To reach the airport, located 10.5 miles away, you will need about 30 minutes.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    A total of 70 rooms are housed on 5 floors. Their design evokes Art Deco, but a more detailed consideration by an experienced eye can see there is a serious effort to blend in with the contemporary with soft hues and strict lines. The attention to detail, from our point of view, transforms the room: laced leather chairs (same model in the restaurant). This approach is quite evocative and unexpected, just what is needed to dispel the feeling of a "chain" hotel (compared with the restrained decor). There is not much space in the rooms, the double rooms are 172 ft², but the pillows are soft, the mattresses are springy and the amenities beyond reproach. Two small bottles of water are supplied, bathrobes and slippers in the bathroom, personal skin care products branded The White Company (8 ounces), an umbrella-form handle above the bathtub, a metal hair-dryer.* And in the room, a TV and a DVD player (in addition to what you may have expected: air conditioning, a minibar, telephone and a safe).

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Right from the recepton area, you will recognise that the hotel is of good standing: it looks more like a private lounge, plus the address is fashionable. The refined decor does not spoil the intimate atmosphere. However, in order to find chairs and tables, you must go to the mezzanine, where the bar is situated on one side and on the other side is the library. The bar is a smoking area, but you are not allowed to smoke in the library: but there is nothing to prevent you from borrowing a book to read while smoking a cigarette. Especially since there you can find illustrated books on the history of Prague (in Czech and English). Too tiring to read during your holidays? Then you can schedule an hour of massage in the Thai beauty parlour: refined ambiance, soothing music playing softly... It is a pity there is no fitness room: at that rate, lazy guests won't change!

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    Have breakfast in the morning: after it there is no catering service provided by the hotel. Especially the buffet, set up at the centre of the dining room, would not spare your appetite. The gastronomes will fill their plates with smoked salmon, bagels and cheese spreads. "Buxom" people will have tomato juice or orange juice (canned, alas), cut fresh fruit, yogurt and cereals. The curious will taste everything: slices of cheese, sliced meats, crispy bread scrambled eggs (or an omelette upon request), cakes and croissants. Yum, many major hotels in other capital cities would never ever offer you service like this. It is a beautiful day? So much the better: you can take your plate (and seat yourself) on the patio adjacent to the hall. No view, nothing but white walls, yet what a pleasure to dine outdoors!

    To know

    Advice for lovers of "branded" hotels: the Maximilian is affiliated with the chain of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. This place promises comfort, service and an elaborate setting...
    It is true, even better!
    However, do not expect too much space in the rooms (172 ft²), or in the common areas (one bar area, a lounge-library opposite, no restaurant except for the breakfast room).
    A lodging tip
    There is an excellent view of the city from every part of the hotel: no jealousy! Except if you want to spend a budget on the suite equipped with a bathroom showing Starck design, the rest of the lodgings offers the same comfort. Perfect for sleeping (? cozy duvet, delicate bed-linen ), which suits guests sensitive to noise (there is none). However, it is not for families: the rooms are too small to add a bed, not to mention two beds!

    • Rott Rott Rott
      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 7.02
      • Location 9.0

      The Hotel Rott is an unpretentious establishment located in the Old Town. It provides a good starting point to discover the sights of Prague, such as the astronomical clock on the wall of the former town hall or the Church of Our Lady before Týn... Don't try to find the latest decorative trends one sees in other hotels, as the style is resolutely classical, sometimes even rustic. Despite a rather arduous journey to get to the guest rooms, the hotel has never lost anyone, or so it claims...

Modern and different from the hotels usually found in Prague, the Josef also sets itself apart for the quality amenities of its guest rooms. Spacious and comfortable, the attention to detail here is second to none for this category of hotel.

      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.

      • Location 8.22

      The King's Court is one of the newest 5 star hotels to open in the Czech capital. It has taken up residence in a fantastic building in an ideal location close to the metro stations and tram stops, with the Municipal House just opposite. Generously sized and decorated in a modern style, it has fabulous amenities and several different room categories to choose from. However, we were not totally satisfied with the originality of the place, and apart from some flashy details, the finishing touches - the furniture, for example - leave a lot to be desired.

      The Grand Majestic Plaza opened in 2009 in the Old Town and stands out for the superb Art Deco design of the lobby. The spacious guest rooms, which can be reached along a maze of corridors, are well equipped and display a more modern decorative approach. The hotel also has a well-being centre in the basement.

      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.

      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.
