I had put up at Movenpick for a week and I had loved every moment of my stay here. The service didn't leave much to desire,the rooms and room service were great too. The physical beauty when one goes up the hill to the executive wing is beautiful in the Czech summer and overall... I found help whenever I required it from the staff - on an occasion it meant them having to go out of their way - when i had misplaced some of my belongings and I was running against time to catch my flight back to India.
It's also suitably conveniently located near the Novy Smichov shopping mall and the Andel tram & metro stations are about 7-8 minutes' walk from the hotel.

Management is uninterested in Service.
1. Will not sell tickets for metro if customer uses a credit card.
2. Wakes up calls do not materialise.Dont depend on the concierge.
3. The steep hill to the lobby is not for the faint hearted.
4. Management in Switzernand is arrogant.
5.A long long walk to the center of the naction.
6. The atrium stretches the height of mall floors and smoke gets into all floors.
7. I would strongly advise - Stay elsewhere.

I stayed at this hotel four nights and was happy with all services recieved. The breakfast buffet wa the best I encountered during my 15 day stay in Europe. It's worth it to ride up to the second hotel on the funicular on clear day!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Movenpick Hotel Prague

Nice hotel with good service

from Bakuvian
I stayed in this hotel in May 2005 for three nights. The location is quite convenient, with a quick access to the metro and tram lines. I did not use the metro as the tram was excellent and the entire journey to the center of the city (Old town) takes about 10-15 minutes max by tram #9 (the stop is opposite the shopping mall). Walking time is about 40 minutes.

The airport is also not too far, within 20 minutes.

Another convenience of the location, especially for guests who are in Prague for a short period of time, is the proximty of one of the largest shopping malls of Prague, Smichov. You can find eveything there, Carrefour hypermarket, clothes, shoes, pharmacy, restaurants and cafes. In fact, I did not need to go for shopping anywhere else.

The hotel itself is nice, staff is OK, although at reception sometimes I got an impresson that they were impatiantley trying to get rid of me with all my requestes and questions.

The hotel consists of the two wings: lower and upper, Executive, linked with a cable car, offering a great view of the town. Alternatively, you could walked up to the exectuve wing through a nice park, but this may be a bit of an exercise.

I stayed in the Executive wing and I really loved it as it had nice balconies and terraces in most of the rooms.

The room was also OK with eveything you would expect from a 4* hotel.

The only disadvantage of the exectuive wing is waiting time for a cable car to come. It may take up to 10-15 minutes.

Overall, for business I would go back to this hotel. But if I am on holiday in Prague, I would stay one of the hotels in the center as all entertainment is around.

Great hotel

from chernomorez
We just spent 3 nites at Movenpick. Hotel is great: rooms are excellent, staff is helpful and friendly, the crowd is quite upscale. It's about a 7-10 minute walk from Andel station, which is busy day and nite. From Andel you'd take the metro, and in 3 stops you're in the center of Prague. There is a large shopping mall - Novi Smichov, and a few restaurants just next to the metro station. My only concern was that there were a lot of abandoned buildings right next to the hotel, which made it feel a bit unsafe. Taxi to the airport was 350ck = 17USD.

A very friendly hotel

from zebra2001uk
My wife and I have just returned from a 4 day stay at the Movenpick Hotel in Prague and we would recommend it to anyone. It may not be in the city centre but the trams and the metro are not far from its front door,either of which will take you rapidly and cheaply into the city centre. The breakfast buffet is magnificent, the rooms are of a good size and the staff are very friendly and helpful - and if you are staying in the hotel at the bottom of the hill, then it is a real experience to take the funicular to the executive wing! We would also advise a visit to the State Opera House - use the Movenpick cars to get you there (and back!) and have a meal in the State Opera Restaurant - I can assure you that it is an evening to remember.

Budget travel hotel

from Luxurious
I stayed in Hotel Moevenpick as part of a conference. The hotel is rated 4 stars but it was most definitely not a 4 star in comparison to hotels in London, Dublin, Thailand etc.

The bedrooms were average in size with a TV that had only BBC World and CNN for English speaking channels. The double beds are in fact two singles pushed together that some may find off-putting!! The rooms were dated in decor and fittings but clean. The bathroom was also clean if basic.

The buffet breakfasts were excellent with a wide range of choice from Danish pastries to scrambled eggs, cheese and fruit. The hotel bar is very nice and has a wide selection of cocktails.

The hotel also has it's own taxis that will take you into the centre of the town; however beware they are expensive! I got a hotel taxi to Charles bridge and it was 450 crowns but an ordinary taxi back was only 200!!

The service was overall appalling, customer service is definitely not practised and some were downright rude.

The standard rates for this hotel are €200 and for a 4 star hotel I would not recommend it for this money - there is better to be had.

Great Hotel, Great Value

from rossharris
Movenpick experience was absolutely great. The value for the money relative to other Prague hotels (which should be your basis for comparison) was fantastic. The hotel is outside the absolute city center but you can quite easily access the centre by tram and metro in 10 minutes or less. I concur with other reviews that the tram is definitely a good choice. Tram lines #9 (old town) and #12 (castle area) are your best bets. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the tram set-up and DO buy your daily transport passes from the conceirage.

Rooms are roomy and clean, service is solid, view is great. Yes, this is not as good as other Swissotels in other cities but this is Prage not Berlin etc.

Currency exchange at the hotel desk was quite fair and the best bet along with ATMs.

Breakfast was more than generous and got me going for a full day of sightseeing.

I encourage you to consider Movenpick. It definitely was worth the money for the upgrade to the executive level.

A little disappointed with the Movenpick Prague

from Sue020
My husband and I stayed here 8-11 April 2005, and I have mixed feelings about the hotel. Prague itself is truly wonderful, but next time we will stay elsewhere. My views are seriously affected by a stay last Spring at the Swissotel in Berlin, which made the Movenpick Prague look decidedly second best and rather poor value for money.

On both occasions we paid extra for executive rooms. In Berlin we had a really wonderful room with magnificent views, roughly the same size and style of decor as the Movenpick, but with many more room facilities, including a fresh coffee maker. The absence of any in-room tea and coffee making facilities in the Movenpick was a major problem for a Brit of a certain age who can't face the day without a cup of tea in bed before tackling anything else! Room service was available, of course, but we found it expensive (as were the hotel bar prices) considering that the cost of all food and drink in the city generally is such an incredible bargain. My main disappointment with our room, though, was the view. I had chosen the executive wing because it was high on a hill and I wanted a good view. (This wing is connected to the main building below by a cable car, which was good fun.) It was indeed a beautiful view, but the window in our room was very small and we could not see out without stepping into the small alcove in which it was placed, which was only big enough for one person to stand in. So it was enjoy the view in a solitary fashion in the alcove, or be companionable in the room proper with no view outside at all. Perhaps other rooms have bigger windows. We were on the same floor as the lounge/bar.

The views from the executive lounge were fantastic, though, but bar prices were too expensive for us to settle down there for long. One free local beer or sparkling wine per day per person at the Movenpeck (deducted from your bill at the end of your stay) did not compare with the Swissotel's offering of an unlimited supply of 'help yourself' wines, beers, spirits, champagne, fresh juice, etc. virtually round the clock. Also available at the Swissotel - as good a breakfast as at the Movenpeck, plus sandwiches, salads, fruit and snacks for most of the day, and even a simple hot dish early in the evening, all free of charge in the executive lounge. So unless you are happy to pay over the odds in the bar for the view, I would not recommend paying extra for a room in the executive wing at the Movenpick.

A final point on the question of location, which other reviewers have discussed. I do not drive and am therefore perfectly at home on public transport. Indeed, I think using public transport is a good way to mix with the local population, and would always recommend it. However, although the tram journey into central Prague is short, and the tram stop is only a short distance from the hotel, do bear in mind that, like public transport the world over, you need to take into account the 'waiting at the bus stop' time. We had particularly cold and wet weather on one day of our stay, and three long waits at stops in those conditions was not pleasant, even though we were well wrapped up. We used the hotel taxis in the evenings simply to avoid arriving at the opera/conert hall soaking wet. An excellent taxi service, but if you are on a tight budget this can add more than you may have planned to your total expenditure.

To sum up, Prague was truly magnificent, and the people we encountered were without exception polite and helpful, but next time I would prefer to stay in the old town or the lesser quarter. The Movenpick was very good, but not exceptional in any respect and the executive wing was not good value for money.

Nice Hotel-Bad Location

from maxford
I stayed in Prague March 17-19, 2005 for 2 nights. The hotel is great.
It's big and modern. It is used for business and groups. Rooms are a good size and modern. Restaurants are great. The buffet breakfast is wonderful. I just wish the hotel was in a better location. When I go back to Prague I want to be in the old city area. Either side of the Charles Bridge.

Sumptious breakfast, brilliant hotel.

from Lizzie30
Loved our visit to this hotel. Super room and sumptious breakfast [such an extensive selection as I,ve never seen before] Got a great deal through AlphaRooms! Easy access from the hotel via trams and metro to the centre and castle. Good inexpensive restaurant just down the road. Helpful, knowledgable staff. All in all a great break!

Good deal

from ivgit
Stayed at this hotel 2 times last one, from 4 to 6 march 05

Always clean, quiet, with a really big breakfast buffet with almost everything , a good taxi service to visit prague, wifi internet (not cheap 720 czk 24h)

All we could have hoped for...

from knight02144
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Movenpick for a week in Sept. 2004 and could not have asked for a better hotel, more helpful and polite staff, or a better breakfast to start the day! I don't know where the reviewer from Cambridge stayed, but unless they crawled, I have no idea how it took them 20 min to get to the Metro stop--it was an easy 5-7 min walk. And, the hotel is right down the street from Mozart's house. Also, the hotel had a fleet of Audis that sat in front of the hotel, just waiting for you to jump in and take you where you needed to go, or pick you up from downtown once the metro stopped running for the night. Concierges were wonderful with recommending restaurants and tours, and setting up arrangements for us. I would even seek out Movenpicks in other cities after our wonderful stay there in Prague.

Top Local Tips for Prague

Tickets Get a day ticket for the trams buses & metro (100 KR) Stamp it when you get on & it's valid for 24 hours. The 3 day ticket is less good value (330KR)

great city A wonderful city and to enjoy its surroundings, one must stay in the city

Transporation to Airport - good price and on time! http://www.prague-airport-transfers.co.uk/transfers-en.htm
