Hotels in Prague

Recommended Posts

Is the Marriott in Prague a nice hotel? When comparing pricing with Hilton, the Marriott was nearly $100 less per night assuming the same discount level. In addition, we may also use points if hotel is good.

Please comment on location and amenities. Thanks!!

If you are a Marriott rewards member you also get free internet. The hotel is in a good location. We did not stay there but others from our Scenic cruise did. If you are interested in a walking tour, look at reviews for the Naked Tour Guide.

I too am looking at the Marriott and wondering about the property. What was the feedback from the others on your scenic cruise?

A group of 10 of us had a post cruise "reunion" in Prague for dinner. My friend and I did not take the Scenic Prague extension but stayed in another hotel and toured on our own. No one had any complaints about the Marriott but no one really said a lot about it.

We stayed at the Hotel Savic in Prague. It was wonderful! Perfectly located, delicious breakfast, helpful staff.
Check it out on Trip Advisor.

We are doing our own post trip beginning Sept 2 from Nuremberg to Prague.
We are staying 5 nights at the Savic Hotel. It was highly recommended by another CC member, who stayed there twice. We haven't booked our transfer yet and are looking for ideas.
Smooth Sailing

We booked an apartment in Old Town - the perfect location - it was on Airbnb. Look for The Best Address in Prague! Sabina took great care of us. It is on the third floor in a very secure building. Also the restaurant we could see out the window from the apartment next to us was fabulous! Ate there twice!

bobalink and fotoimagini,

Your screen names are giving my spellchecker fits!

We are also staying at Hotel Savic, when we visit Prague for 3 nights in May. Our friends stayed there over Christmas, and highly recommended it. In fact, they liked it so much that they are going to join us in May for another visit!

Glad to hear more good reviews of the hotel. Looking forward to our stay there. :D

We stayed at the Hotel Pod Vezi, a beautiful bed and breakfast right by the Charles bridge. Just loved it, and would stay there anytime. Great restaurant there too.

We'd stayed at the Hilton Prague which faces the Marriott on V Celnici Street. We found the Hilton to be very clean, quiet & more than satisfactory. There is complementary coffee in room & continental breakfast in the lobby. If you are a Hilton Honor member (free to join), you'll have complementary wifi. The hotel is around a 10 - 15 minutes stroll to Old Town where the Astronomical Clock is. There are restaurants & a "7-11" type of convenient store very close by. There is also the large "Palladian Mall" just around the corner of the hotel. ATMs' are readily available near the hotel.

If it is the Marriott across the street from the Old Town Hilton it looked very nice from the front.

Both are within easy walking distance from the Clock square and other tourist attractions. There is also a very nice grocery store just down the street.

The Boscolo Hotel in Prague is part of the Marriott family so you should be able to use points (a lot of points). It is excellent. Beautiful hotel, great restaurant, a pool and health spa in the basement that is a gem. Highly recommended.

Returned recently from the Marriott in Prague. Great location (across the street from the Hilton Old Town) for walking into the Old Town. Concierge and staff very welcoming and helpful, rooms comfortable (great AC) and food in the lobby Bourbon Bar very good. We had access to the Club Lounge and found it very mediocre. All in all a very good stay.

We stayed for 4 days at the Marriott in Prague (across from the Hilton) a couple of years ago on points. We actually were very pleased. We payed an extra fee to get Executive Lounge access. We thought it was worth the price.. We got breakfast each day, and wine and drinks in the afternoon and fairly heavy appetizers. Lots of people were doing the same thing. The Lounge was usually busy! We had really nice lunches and really did not need big dinners so that worked for us. Of course we had been traveling for 2 weeks so we really did not need more food! Good location and reasonably nice rooms.

I stayed at a hotel not far from the Marriott. The Prague Marriott is a standard Marriott with rooms, amenities, & service similar the world over. A basic good hotel located not far from Old Town, shopping, cafes, and the Municipal House. Transportation is available at the square.

We also stayed in one of her properties. The one that overlooked the old town square. It was HEAVEN.

We are doing a B2B on Vking through Prague with a few days in Prague. On arrival from Berlin we had Marriott and leaving to Paris we had Hilton. They were both good locations although we would have to change hotels.
Just got an e mail that both cruises now stay at the Corinthian. While not changing hotels between cruises is nice the location of Corinthian sucks. They've also changed our hotel in Paris (for the better).
All this for a cruise next year Sept. Only hotel not changed so far is Berlin Hilton and I hope they keep it.
I wonder how many more changes before the cruise next year.
Is this typical this far in advance and is it likely to stay?
TIA

The Corinthia hotel Prague is right by a Metro station and a few nice restaurants are nearby.

Yes, but it is not walking distance to Old Town. Most people go to Prague to see Old Town and not Vysehrady.
You can take the Metro to Old Town from Corinthia - with all the pickpockets - but it's not the same as being in or walking to Old Town from nearby hotels while actually seeing something and not being underground in the Metro.

<p>True, but it's about the same amount of time to Prague Castle, which isn't walkable from either Marriot or Corintia.  Once you get into the town center, it's pretty much all the same to and around the popular sites.</p><br><br><br><p><br><img src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-0w6ff_FlraY/UYcZsb2megI/AAAAAAAAId8/EyBIn9rXUBI/s1600/dont-grumble-just-whistle-and-always-look-on-the-bright-side-of-life.png[" border="0" alt=""></p><div><br></div>

Taking public transportation in Prague is really easy. We used the tram to get up to the castle, out to Vysehrady and all over. Very easy and pretty inexpensive. We walked back from Vysehrady to Old Town and stopped at the farmers market as well as some historical places along the way. There's a church where the soldiers that assassinated SS-General Reinhard Heydrich tried to hide from the ****'s (if you watch the movie Operation Daybreak you'll see it) that you can walk to on your way back. There's a display in the underground where they ended up dying. So much history in Prague. Check out that movie...you will see much of Prague in it.

FWIW,
I was born and grew up in what was once Czechoslovakia and have been to Prague many, many times both while I lived there till age of 20 and since. I have seen just about all that Prague has to offer - in the old days and more recently. I am not really going there as a tourist - more like a nostalgic homecoming.
With all that said, I would much rather stay in or very near the Old Town than in Vysehrady. I am just disappointed that [U]both[/U] of our hotels (Hilton & Marriott) that are central were changed to a hotel in Vysehrady. Every time I have visited on my own I have stayed very centrally - in the Old Town itself or Wenceslaus Square.
YMMV
PS I did see Operation Daybreak and know all about Lidice (if not familiar with that story, look it up) Edited by Paulchili

The perspective of a tourist, like me, certainly differs from that of a "local boy" gone home. Hope you enjoy your visit.

Thank you - I am sure I will (despite the hotel changes :)).
Even with having visited Prague so many times I will likely find something new to see or experience. Can't wait to have some food that I grew up with and cannot easily find here - one of the things I look forward to most. :D

We made our way out to Terezin and Lidice on our last visit. I think this was my 6th time to Prague. I was fortunate to have been able to visit in the late 80's many times. I had never seen the movie until before this last visit. Having put on a few years since my earlier visits, I am much more interested in the historical aspects of places now then I was back then.

I would not want to be in a hotel that far out either. We spent a week pre-cruise in an Airbnb apartment right on old town square and it was wonderful. I loved being in the heart of things.

Well, I just got a notice of another hotel change - this time in Berlin. From a very well positioned Hilton on Gendarmenmarkt to a Sheraton a bit more off center.
Most annoying as 3 out of 4 changes were for the worse.
Why are these changes being made this far in advance of a Sept '18 cruise?
