Henrietta Hotel, Prague I arrived at the Hotel Henrietta in the night of Friday 22nd May at about 10:45pm. Got picked up at Prague airport as usual by the excellent taxi firm “Prague airport shuttle” were thankfully I got picked up by the always reassuring taxi driver, one Mr Dave Berry. The hotel was situated in an area of Prague called Ke Stirce and the nearest metro station is very near at Kobylisy. The number 14 tram ran very nearby the hotel and hopefully the 17 tram will hopefully once again run near the hotel during the day. The 17 was disrupted due to engineering works but the 53 and 55 night trams were thankfully operating as normal. All these trams run right into the city centre and like the metro are clean, tidy, reliable and always on time so I would certainly recommend buying a five day 24 hour ticket pass. You can buy these tickets from Kobylisy metro station during office hours and in the long term they are a much cheaper alternative than a taxi plus by tram you get to see more of Prague at a leisurely pace but if want to get to somewhere quicker then the metro would be a better option. At most you only wait 10 minutes for a metro train but they do stop running at around midnight where as the trams run all-night. Kobylisy is a fairway from the city centre but I was familiar with this area because this hotel is very near some flat’s I stayed in for three months the first time I came to Prague back in September 2004 and the Henrietta is situated between the city centre and the Letnany exhibition centre were the 2nd annual Prague beer festival was held and that’s why I chose this place to stay for the week. Also the reviews on tripadvisor were positive and the price was quite good to. It varied between 1500czk for the weekend and 1200czk for the week. When I got there I needed driver Dave’s help to get the attention of the hotel reception via his mobile to let them know I was here because their intercom didn’t seem to attract any attention at the reception desk but once contact had been made via his mobile the reception were only to happy to help me so before you leave home I think it would be a advisable to have the contact number of the Henrietta with you just in case you get no reply by pressing their intercom service by the hotel doors like I did! Once I checked in and gave the reception my details, I went up their communist era style lift and went to my hotel room. My hotel room was quite spacious with a double bed, a table and chairs, some draws and a wardrobe for my belongings. The bathroom was fairly standard with the usual power shower, sink and toilet. The shower only had a curtain to keep the water out which I thought was a little basic but other than that it was adequate for my needs. The double bed would have befitted from a king sized duvet to cover the double bed because two single sized duvets did not meet my needs when I wanted a good night’s sleep but at least the mattress was comfortable and the bed sheets were clean. When I checked out the amenities for this hotel it stated it had satellite TV yet there were no English speaking channels. Only Czech, German and Russian which I found a little disappointing but my room did have a radio were I found a couple of English speaking stations which kept me informed on world events. The view from my hotel window was not partially great because it consisted of no more than a builder’s construction site. When I woke up in morning it was to the sound of machines grinding and crunching and this all started at around 7am but I wasn’t to bothered by this because it did make for an excellent alarm call to get up to and go for breakfast. The breakfast was of a standard one would expect of any decently run 3 star hotel. It had the usual continental flare of various cereals, yogurts, cold meats, sandwich spreads and bread but they did have a sort of English breakfast menu that consisted of hot dog sausages, contained fried eggs and various colours of warm sliced up peppers. They also had the usual coffees, teas, hot chocolate and juices to choose from as well. When I had breakfast it was usually in the breakfast dining room but there was a tendency to swap over the breakfast to the nearby hotel restaurant the reasons of which were never made clear to me but at least the hotel restaurant like the breakfast dining room was clean, spacious and cosy to dine in. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful plus they spoke English quite well to. A good example of this was when I told the reception the day before I was to leave that my flight back home wasn’t until late at night and as usual I had to vacate my room by 11am the following day but for an extra 500czk they gave me the option to stay on in there until I was to leave. I took up there offer and used the extra time I had to pack away my belongings before they phoned me to pay up at around 7pm which I did by credit card and at 8pm my Prague airport shuttle taxi arrived to take me back to the airport. Overall for what I paid for, the Henrietta is great value for money and with the excellent tram and metro service nearby your never to far out from the city centre but for people who want to go clubbing and enjoy Prague’s nightlife or you need to be near a coach stop or the train station to be on time for a day trip to somewhere in the Czech Republic that you have booked in advance then a hotel in the area’s of Prague’s 1 or 2 would be a much better option but I would happily recommend the Henrietta to single’s and couple’s who don’t mind being out of the city centre and like to take their holidays at a leisurely pace.
