Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Palace Praha

Well worth it

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the palace over this weekend (19-nov-2004).

Arrival: warm welcome with knowledgeable staff, retrieval of booking information and check in were a snap.

Room: Good size and nicely furnished with complimentery cake and fruit basket. Bed was very comfortable with ample pillows, plus extra blankets in wardrobe. Unfortunately they follow the German style with two single duvets, rather than one double, but your mileage will vary on whether you like this idea. Turn down service in the evening is a nice touch that's normally missing these days. Tea & coffee making facilities in room were also appreciated but the Minibar was a complete rip off in comparison to local prices, 330ml beer from minibar around 3 GBP, 500ml from shop across the street 0.55 GBP. Shop is open 7-11 btw.

Bathroom: nice marble with shower over bath, plenty of good quality toiletries and spotlessly clean. Bath was on the small side.

Breakfast: can't be faulted, the buffet had something for everyone, from muesli to chocolate cake. Nice hot section for those who enjoy a good fry up too.

Bar / Lounge: could be better, feel is more travel lodge than 5 star hotel. We didn't take dinner at the hotel, so can't comment on the 'Gourmet Club'

Check out: again professional attention and the bill was correct.

Value: we booked through the 'Leading Hotels Of The World' website for 149 EUR per night including breakfast and taxes, which for the price seemed well worth it.

Perfect weekend!

I was quite surprised when reading the previous report from the American visitor. My three friends and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at this first class hotel. Right from the moment we arrived, we could not fault the service and we found the hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were very spacious and comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent and again the service of the hotel staff could not be faulted. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant on our last night and thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Prague is the most amazing city. Many people had told me how wonderful it was but it surpassed my expectations. The only part I was not too fond of was Wenceslas Square which reminded me so much of the tacky Oxford Street in London. The convenience of staying at the Principal hotel is it is so handy for visiting everywhere without the need to use public transport. Prague is a delightful city and I am definitely coming back to show my husband all the incredible buildings and yes I would definitely stay at the Place hotel again!

Great location, average service, and blah tiny room

from upgraded
We stayed at the Palace for 4 nights in late October. I paid $645 thru Luxury Link for a package which included: 4 nights, 1 dinner for 2, 2 tickets to the Mucha Musuem, and breakfasts. After reading all the great reviews I was disappointed and while we loved Prague next time we will stay somewhere else. With the exception of the restaurant, which had excellent food and excellent service I thought the service level of the hotel was just OK. The front desk staff spoke little English and were far less than helpful. The first room we got was tiny with twin beds.We were moved the next day to the room next door with a queen bed. The restaurant was supposed to open at 6 for breakfast. I had to go to the lobby and walk upstairs at 6:10 to get them to open. Normally I would not be up at that hour but we were leaving for the airport. Overall I did not experience the same quality and in the previous reviews. Room was very clean. Only 3 English channels on TV.

The Pearl of Prague

from A TripAdvisor Member
My Wife and I stayed at "The Palace" for 3 Days at the beginning of November 2004. We had considered staying at the Hilton, but after seeing its out of town location realised we had made the right choice. The location is excellent, never had to use public transport. The room we stayed in was large, very clean and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was spotless and towels were changed daily (sometimes twice) The turndown service in the evening was welcomed and the slippers provided were a nice touch. Breakfast was something to look forward to with everything you could wish for in abundance! The staff were excellent, very friendly and made us feel welcome. The Palace helped to make our first trip to Prague a memorable one, we would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone looking for good food and excellent service in a location that is central for everthing. We will certainly return to "The Pearl of Prague."

Good Quality Hotel, Excellent Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I have just returned (Monday 8th Nov) from a 3 night stay at The Palace and would have no reservations in highly recommending this Hotel.

It is centrally located as previously stated, about 2 minutes from Wenceslas Square(which is more of an attractive Avenue), 10 minutes from the Old Town Square, and 15 minutes from Charles Bridge. There are many shopping arcades within minutes from Mothercare to M&S and Next, with lots of more local and higher end brands aswell.

The hotel itself is clean and the service is good, from the concierge through to the housekeepers and reception staff.

No doubt we will return when we're next in Praha.

Decent Hotel, Good Location

from jasonmymail
We stayed at the Palace for 4 nights in early November. It was an all in deal but room rates were about £90pn for a couple in a standard room.

The location is very good, just behind Wencleslas Square (1 min), a gentle stroll to the old town square (<10mins); from there an another 5 minutes west to the Charles Bridge, or 5 minutes north to the Jewish Cemetary. All the major attractions are easily walkable from the hotel with the castle a pleasant 1/2 hour or so walk away (obviously longer if you're distracted by shops and sights - but that's all part of the appeal) through some of Pragues main streets and attractions. We didn't use public transport once during our stay. Wencleslas Square is a buzzing shopping area by day, it's a tad tacky/seedy at night but we never felt unsafe as there are always many people around even during low season.

The hotel itself is about 100 years old and in a nice old building located on a corner. A doorman greets you at the classy entrance, through to the lobby which is smart and well finished but not opulent or glitzy. You get the impression of a good quailty hotel, but not one which is stuffy or snobby.

Our room on the 5th floor faced the interior courtyard - there was no real view but it was very quiet and well shielded from traffic and tram noise. The room was a good size and the queen bed large and comfortable, if a little firm. Furniture, fittings, carpets and curtains were nice - nothing extrordinary but tasteful and understated. The bathroom was also large and finished in marble with chrome fixtures. It was very clean but minor let downs were a musty shower curtain, a plastic bath that was too narrow and grouting that was probably due for renewal - there were however new bath seals. None of this would be enough to put me off staying there again but might have helped to push my rating closer to the excellent level. Water pressure and temperature were fine and towels large, replaced every day.

The room was cleaned every afternoon, and a turn down service in the evening - the Palace seemed to time everything very well in this respect.

Other features included, safe, small TV with Pay TV & satellite (but mostly German channels), in room internet (for a fee), lots of storage, airconditioning, trouser press (not electric), kettle with complimentary tea/coffee, mini bar (at usual inflated hotel prices), telephone in room and bathroom, hairdryer, bureau table. Freebies included a nice selection of travel bottle tolietries, nail file, soap, shoe shine, sewing kit and best of all slippers with Palace Hotel Logo.

Breakfasts were excellent with a very large selection of hot english, continental croissants, pastries and breads, cereals, yoghurts, local cakes, fruit cocktails, pancakes, toast, cheeses, cold meats and even chicken/beef/potatoes. Open from 6AM to 11AM you really could eat at a time to suit.

Service was friendly, staff happy to help but not all over you by any means. Subtle is the best way to describe it - not overly intrusive, not snobby - just the way we like it. There seemed to be a nice varied mixture of guests and as a gay couple we always felt comfortable.

If you want a good hotel in a good location for your sightseeing base then the Palace should definitely be on your short-list. For the price we paid it was very good value indeed. If you want a view, something more ornate, grandiose or exclusive then perhaps elsewhere would suit you better. All in all the Palace was a good choice and we enjoyed our stay.

Great City--Great Hotel

from JackBAtlanta
Spent five nights at Palace Praha in late October 2004. We were enchanted with the special beauty and feeling of Prague. The Palace was wonderful. Perfect location, very helpful staff. Lovely room. Great breakfasts. Highlight was dinner at Gourmet Club Restaurant--world class. Palace is small enough to be friendly and intimate--large enough to provide every facility and amenity. Would stay there on any future trip to Prague.


Stay at this hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at this hotel in October 2004 and couldn't fault it. The room was huge, comfortable and spotless. The staff were helpful and attentive, we even received a beautifully wrapped platter of home made chocolates after being shown to our room. Do not miss out on eating at the hotel restaurant with the half price voucher presented when you check in. The food is beautiful and the Maitre D is very entertaining!! The buffet breakfast was also perfect with an unlimited choice of everything imaginable.
The location of this hotel is perfect if you wish to explore the city by foot. Just off Wenceslas square we walked to all the major sights and never had to once use public transport. All in all this was a beautiful hotel in a magical city, would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.

Great stay at the Palace

We loved our 3 night stay at the Palace. The hotel is perfectly situated to enjoy all of the sights in Prague. Service was extraordinary and the breakfast buffet was simply wonderful!

Top Local Tips for Prague

beware dont use taxis!! underground links are great to the city and getting around the city is great by tram. also watch out at bars and clubs for younger males and females , the staff can be very aggressive and charge you to leave the venue. Be wary of bar tabs as have been stung several times at beer halls who charge you for shots you refuse and they leave at your table!! very cheeky

hotel palace praha ottimo hotel

Weekends can be wild in Prague Apparently all of Europe comes to Prague for cheap beer on the weekends. Even in a relatively quiet season, the city is packed on Saturday and Sunday and certain areas can be quite crowded with revelers. If you want a quieter experience, trying going midweek.
