Historical Traveller Reviews of The Diplomat Hotel
Fantastis Hotelfrom jen83
Luxury over Conveniencefrom OldHagg
Good hotel, not great.from nesulli
Service at the hotel was great, the staff was more than willing to provide tourist information and directions. Breakfast was great, full american/english not continental. Parking garage was under the hotel with a car wash.
Overall we enjoyed that stay and I would probably stay there again, the only downside seemed to be the rooms. But then again you are only sleeping there!
Moderate hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Although certainly not the worst, it is my opinion that the price of the room does not reflect the service of the htoel.
Fantastic Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The breakfast beffet was superb, great food and a massive choice of hot and cold food.
In terms of the location, we found this a great place to stay. The hotel is a little out of the centre so away from all the hustle and bustle, but is right next to the tube, the bus and the tram, making it so easy to get to where we wanted to go. The transport is fantastic, so you never have to wait and it is so cheap - we actually found it quite enjoyable working out where to go and jumping from tube to tube.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting prague, particularly if you want a bit of quiet time where you can relax in the bar or in your room or in the whirlpool and sauna.
Its a great hotel and well worth the money we paid for it - if we ever return to prague we would definitlely choose this hotel.
Good Location Ex Servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
very disappointedfrom rab03
You may read this and think i must be very picky but i have never stayed in a worse place for the money i paid.
Good Quality Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is very clean and comfortable, well located to the airport and the city centre, it's not bang in the middle of town - but we preferred that, and it was less than 5 mins into the middle of town anyway via the metro.
The staff were pretty impersonal - but accommodating, just without a smile!
The breakfast was good, and despite other reviews previously, I thought the drinks and restaurant were reasonably priced - hardly bank breaking stuff, all in all a pleasant stay – but certainly not earth shattering!
I would recommend the hotel for a reasonably priced and comfortable stay in Prague.
Loved Dimplomat Prahafrom Leisure_Traveller_GR
We checked-in at night, and went directly to our rooms.
The hotel was excellent. Rooms were spacious, clean, had a very nice bed and nice big pillows. There was also a nice bathroom with a bath tub.
Would surely stay there again.
Dimplomat Hotelfrom IrelandMaureen
A couple of minor points were, there was no safe in the bedroom and drinks at the bar were a little expensive (go to the bar on the corner directly accross the road, very nice in a minimalist way, fabulous food and loads of choice and drinks at amazingly low prices - try the Goulash, but if you arent adventurous there is loads of english dishes too). (Thanks to the other tripadvisor who recommended that!)
The Hotel is situated on the main road from the Airport to Prague. If staying a few days purchase a three day travel ticket at the airport, cost about £4.50 each and take the 119 bus at the airport entrance. The journey into Prague is about 15 mins, this bus drops you right outside the hotel near the end of the journey. (its important to validate the ticket in the little yellow machine when you get on board the bus, once you have done this you dont have to worry about anything else for the next three days as this entitles you to unlimited travel on the buses, trams and underground. Dont be tempted to travel without a validated ticket as the Inspectors are in plain clothes and look like just like any other commuter, i understand the fines are heavy and instant if you cheat! I didnt even know the man standing beside me on the tram was an Inspector until he flashed a badge under my nose and asked to see my ticket.
The buses dont run into the middle of Prague, so from the hotel use the underground or trams, which are also in front of the hotel. Two stops on the green line underground takes you into the middle of prague (about two mins), and it runs every three or four minutes until 8.00pm, then every ten mins until midnight. There are only three lines; green, yellow and red, so its simple to use. your hotel stop is at 'Dervicka' which is at the end of the line anyway. If you take the tram, they also seem to come along every few mins and the trip into prague takes about 10 mins depending on traffic and is quite scenic. All transport is clean and efficient and safe, tho be sensible about pickpockets as in any big city.
Charles bridge is best when the sun is going down as the street traders have cleared off by then and you get a really nice view of the bridge. Cafes in sides streets are much better prices than in the touristy areas, so get off the beaten track just a little. If you have been charged more that £10 for a good sized meal for two inc wine, then you've been ripped off! If you go to the castle (go on tram 22) you will be given a choice of two itenaries (A and B), I took the cheaper one (B about £6) which allowed me into the Old Palace, St Vitus Cathedral, and Golden Lane which took about four or five hours to do. Its really worth it to spend the extra couple of quid to go on the tour with the Tourguide - as this brought the whole thing alive). Would def go back to Prague and to the Diplomat.
Top Local Tips for Prague
Taxis from the Airport When exiting the departure gate, there will be a line of taxis waiting to take you wherever you wish to go. Don't use them! There is a cartel and they jack the prices up to at least double what you should pay. Instead walk over to the Arrival gate and get a taxi that just dropped someone off. They'll charge the normal fare and not hassle you as much (although you get a little with all taxis in Prague!)
Jazz cruise The Jazz cruise (about two hours on the river in the evening) was a lot of fun to do with friends. BUT: eat before you go. The food is not cheap, and wasn't particularly great. The drinks were fine, though. At our hotel (the Diplomat) you could buy tickets right at the concierge desk. If it is raining, skip the cruise. There are indoor tables, but the most fun was hanging out on the uncovered top deck.
Hotel own cars are quite expensive If you want to take a taxi ask for 'AAA' or 'Hallo'.
