Positive Reviews

There's a castle right outside the hotel

You can step out of the hotel and stroll right into a castle complex.  Walking through the fairy-tale like streets, you can also reach the Charles Bridge, Old Town and the centre of Prague on foot. The hotel is located near the tram and a metro station, making accessibility a breeze.

Large, spacious rooms

Generally, guests were pleased with the well-decorated, large rooms. They commended the classic furnishing and many commented on how beautiful and spacious the rooms were for the cost.

Classic designs of the hotel

Guests liked that the hotel retained some of the Old World character with stained glass windows, solid wood furniture and decorated ceilings. It added to the magic of being in Prague, but also had a touch of luxury.

Negative Reviews

Be prepared for a hike

The hotel is situated in one of the highest points of Prague and requires a steep walk upward. Getting to the hotel is not easy for people who are not fit or have mobility issues. On the positive side, this means you're already up the hill and don't have to go further up to reach the castle and other elevated destinations.

Wi-Fi is a bit patchy

Several guests complained that their Wi-Fi connection was weak in their rooms. They said the connexion faded in and out occasionally.

Disappointed with amenities

Although the hotel advertised having parking spaces, disappointed guests said there were hardly enough. There were complaints about the lack of tea-making facilities in the room and that the breakfast was lacklustre.
