Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Intercontinental Praha
Not Brilliantfrom Brigham
Great city, great location, but be carefulfrom wmccfp
The Hotel's exterior is not exactly in keeping with it's surroundings. Inside the lobby and general areas were spacious and adequate. Our room was also spacious and the view of the river and Prague Castle beautiful. The bathroom was medium sized with an excellent shower.
The buffet breakfast was very good and a source of daily amusement. The first day our omelet chef (age 21) was training an apprentice who was about age 16. The next day the 16 year old was training a 15 year old apprentice. By our last day a 14 year old was training a 12 year old. Amazingly our omelets were good every day and the range and quality of choices excellent.
What to watch out for: the Czechs have taken capitalism to a new level. We took the train from Vienna and had the concierge from the Intercontinental Vien call ahead to have a car from the hotel pick us up at a cost of $11. The car and driver were there and the bill was almost $50. Only after getting the manager did we get that resolved. Our room rate included VAT but the hotel added it on anyway(extra 22% by their calculations). I'd made my reservation through American Express and only after threatening to call Amex did they remove it. Finally, we agreed on a price of $31 for a hotel car and driver take us to the airport. It was included on our bill. Five weeks later I got an additional charge for $31 on my Amex bill for the same trip.
Despite this we highly recommend both the Intercontinental and Prague as long as you keep one hand on your wallet.
Wonderful Hotelfrom Dolly123
Great Location and Impeccable Servicesfrom yptee
First of all, the location is great. It is close to the Jewish Quarter for sightseeing. Don't miss walking along Parizska from the hotel to the old town square, there are lots of beautiful buildings and cafes along the way. You will see lots of locals there as well as tourists. I was told it is one of the most expansive address in the city.
Services... I got upgraded to the club floor. The club lounge is simply amazing and very convenient for free breakfast, a drink before heading out and even a snack. The staff were extremely helpful when ask to reserve restaurants etc.
The only negative thing is the building. It is quite modern and therefore out of place in Prague. However, the rooms are lovely and of a good size. I would stay there again the next time I visit Prague.

Great Location, Iffy Servicefrom MichaelChristine
One of the bestfrom Flaesb
Outstanding service, but priceyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great location......from robinlynn47
Good location, reliable hotelfrom RoamingScot
My impressions were positive, on the whole. For a tourist, the hotel's location is excellent - just off the edge of the Jewish Quarter, and within easy walking distance of the major sights. The rooms were comfortable, and in my case, quiet - we had requested a room at the back, rather than overlooking the river (and the busy main road beside it). From my experiences, the staff were also uniformly helpful, polite, and well-trained.
So why not 5 stars ? Well, the downsides were the size of the room, and the prices.
The room was certainly not small, but it was pretty standard Holiday Inn size, although with better quality furnishings ! The bathroom, while acceptable and usable, was again not the size I would expect from a premier grade hotel. (Note : As a Priority Club member, I got an upgrade to an Executive Room. I don't know if the standard rooms were smaller - I certainly hope not!)
The prices were also pretty high - the published rate for the room was comparable to what I would expect in a Western European capital city, as were the food and drink prices. I can't comment on the food quality, since we never ate in - we went elsewhere in the city, and found good food at half to two thirds of the hotel price.
However, if you don't mind the cost, the hotel location is pretty near ideal, and it is certainly a comfortable base for exploring the city. Recommended.
Top Local Tips for Prague
Yummy Cake If you love Chocolate Cakes you've got to find a place that sells Prague Balls. They are huge, tasty balls that are to die for!!!
U Vejvodu Fun, original and very inexpensive place to eat and drink, tavern style, close to Charles bridge on the east side of the river, a lot of, but not only, younger people, visitors as well as locals. Great food with huge portions. ulice Jilská 4, Praha 1 http://www.restauraceuvejvodu.cz/
Airport and train station If arriving by train it is easy to get to you hotel via the metro if you have a hotel in the city. Be sure to check with the TI booth and know which stop is closest to your hotel. If arriving by plane it best to take the bus (least expensive) to the metro or take a taxi to your hotel.
