Historical Traveller Reviews of Movenpick Hotel Prague
Nice hotel with good servicefrom Bakuvian
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 hotelfrom chernomorez
A very friendly hotelfrom zebra2001uk
Budget travel hotelfrom Luxurious
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 Valuefrom rossharris
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 Praguefrom Sue020
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 Locationfrom maxford
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.
