Prague wasn't originally on my 'list’ of places to see in Europe, whether it was the fact I didn’t know much about the place or that I was so set on seeing the main attractions somehow it missed my radar. With that said, the more I heard people rave about it after having been there the more I wanted to go and see it for myself, and so …

Day 1

After being met at the bottom of the ramp by a railway employee and shown to a taxi rank which promptly took me to my hotel named Miss Sophie's, after driving what seemed to be a bloody long way, but only because we were driving up one street and down another, for awhile I thought I was driving with a Prague …

Last day, but it's a good one!

Hallo! (Oops, that's German, ah well!)

Well, today was the last big day in Europe, tomorrow is the wonderful, dreaded travels back to the US. I really was almost convinced that I may end up home-sick by the end of this trip, but that has been far from the case. I could stay here quite a bit longer, especially with the ease of talking with …

So, today was interesting, and fun! Sleeping in was definitely an enjoyable experience compared to the being up and running that has been going on. I slept 9 hours last night! Fantastic :) This definitely helped as my mood could have been rather bitter with the morning experience. See, Prague seems to have been getting quite a bit …

Ahoj! (That's hello in Czech)

Well, today the extra few days of journeying beyond the study abroad portion of the trip has begun. We are currently in for the night in our hotel in Prague, called Miss Sophie's.

    There was no window in the bath room/toilet, the vantalisation wasn't so great. Friendly staff, always tried to help. Walking distance to the old town, Might stay with them again.

    This was the best hostel I've ever stayed in!
    The breakfast - worth paying the money - so much, gourmet and delicious!
    The rooms - fresh, clean, light, quiet, fairly spacious. The bathroom was very lush with full shower head and hair dryer.
    The staff - very friendly and helpful.
    Location - quite central. About a 30 minute walk to the centre of the old town.

    Miss Sophie's was a very clean and spacious hostel, with each room being a small part of an apartment. No bunk beds and a maximum of 5 people to a room. Very clean hostel, very friendly and helpful staff members.
    Miss Sophie's offers a full buffet breakfast at a cost if you wish. The location is very easy to make your way in and out of town and also in a good location for public transort. However, I felt it would be better if it were a little closer walking distance to town. The only thing I could fault.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Miss Sophie's Prague

    Freundliches Personal, ruhig und entspannend


    Während des bitterkalten Januars haben wir ein paar schöne Nächte im Miss Sophie verbracht.

    Value for money, nice and clean


    Me and my boyfriend spent our 4-day Easter break at this lovely hostel. We didn't stay in the newly renovated apartment on our first night due to some over-booking issue, however, the overall quality was still good. We then got transferred to Sophie's main apartment room for the rest of our staying. The decoration is really modern and nice and the apartment is clean and spacious. There's kettle and coffee maker in the kitchen and tea bag and coffee are also available. The staff was very friendly and they all spoke good English. There's also internet available which is free for guests to use at the reception launge.

    Friendly staff, quiet and relaxing


    We spent a lovely couple of nights in Miss Sophie's in freezing cold January. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hostel was incredibly warm which was essential considering it never got above -5C outside.

    The hostel is of a minimalist style with basic concrete walls and simple furnishing, but it somehow retains character. The basement/kitchen is small but comfortable and the whole place is relatively quiet so great for me but no good for a stag/hen party!

    It has a good location if you're not fussy about a bit of a walk. The metro is very close and Wenceslas Square is about a ten minute walk. Why go somewhere if you're not going to walk about and see some of it?!

    Miss Sophie's has all you could really need for a whistlestop visit to Prague.

    We'd go back in a heartbeat!


    We were meeting family in Prague for a couple of days, and wanted someplace clean, safe, reasonably priced. We were most pleased. Accomodations seem newly updated, beds comfortable, baths new and clean. There is a kitchenette in the basement, a security camera monitors your entry (attendant beeps you in). There is Internet access in the lobby-two workstations. It is close to IP Pavlova subway station and a reasonable hike to Wenceslaus square. There is no TV, and the rooms seem a little bare. We didn't mind. We are not kids; I just turned 60.

    Convenient and Comfortable


    Five of us early 20-somethings just spent 2 nights in Miss Sophie's (we booked a 5 person room at about $18 USD a night each) and loved the hostel. The staff is friendly and incredibly helpful, the room was clean, the bathrooms were fantastic (but yes, make sure you bring soap and don't forget a towel), and the common room in the basement was a cozy place to sit when we were waiting for our taxi to show up and take us to the airport.

    Sophie's is the Best


    I just returned from a 20 day trip through Europe and Sophie's was my favorite hotel/hostel. I stayed at primarily hostels and it far exceeded all others in terms of service, quality, cleanliness, value, etc. It's a beautiful, beautiful hotel (hostel) with free internet, lovely rooms and a great staff. I wrote home telling others it was the "Westin hotels" of hostels. The only negative feedback I heard was from very young travellers was that they were looking for a party place...and it is not that.

    Lovely city with rich history


    We were asked to travel to Prague for a business meeting and combined the trip with our honeymoon. As newlyweds, we needed to keep our own expenses on a budget. So we had an opportunity to contrast travel accommodations between the Intercontinental Praha (a solid 4 star hotel) and Miss Sophies Hotel (a yet unrated combination hostel, hotel and pension). You can check out the Intercontinental Praha reviews in TA and get a good idea of that facility. It's a world beyond Miss Sophies [--]. However, Sophies, located in New Town at Melounova 3, is within walking distance of anything in Old or New Town. The little hotel offers small, immaculately clean, private rooms with bath, or other typical hostel arrangements, at a very attractive price. (Private rooms w/ bath at 1400 KCZ - about $56 USD.) Plan on packing your own soap and shampoo. There is no air conditioning, but for cool nights - efficient steam heat. The windows actually open for fresh air and down comforters are provided. The furnishings are minimalist, but all custom built with contemporary styling that contrasts nicely with the polished oak floors. The staff is multilingual, very friendly and helpful. There is not a restuarant in the hotel, but Banditos next door fills the gap nicely, offering value-priced breakfast, lunch and dinner with a tasty Mexican flair. Value price means you could be paying less than $5 USD without drinks (full bar is available). Czech beer on happy hour is about $0.50 USD and leagues beyond anything brewed in the United States. Other wonderful neighborhood restaurants include U Dlabace (104 typical Czech items on menu), Pivorsky Dum (Brewery House) - a brew pub with wonderful Czech and hunt-style dishes, and The Butterfly - contemporary Czech food and California-style pizza in a casual environment with sidewalk seating available.

    Great budget hotel


    We had the handicap room off of the lobby, which had a fantastic shower. The beds were a little hard, but acceptable. Our room had a place to lay 2 suitcases and a little couch, with two big windows. Great, free,fast internet access. It is about a 10 min walk to Wenceslas and a 15 min walk to Old Town Square, but the tram and subway stop is right up the street and easy to use.

    A Bargain With Great Showers, But Otherwise Basic


    If all you need is a clean room and shower, this is a recommended option. I booked a single room, private bath/toilet for 1200 kc a night. My room had two single beds. The pluses are the famous showers in this new hostel/hotel. The shower head must have been at least 12 inches in diameter! Decor was very post-modern, stark, so there were no cabinets or closets in the room. The other big plus for Miss Sophie's is the free Internet in the lobby. It's also very convenient to I.P. Pavlova Metro and lots of trams running on the street off the hotel. The negatives are the lack of closets, etc., mentioned above. Also, pretty inconsistent service since the staff are basically young kids without a lot of training. I stayed four days, and my linens and towels were never changed or even made up. It wasn't until my last night that I overheard one staffer tell someone checking in that linens could be changed "on request." They also initially got my rate wrong at check-in until I caught the mistake. Also, avoid rooms 1 and 2, which are on the ground floor right at the lobby, so every backpacking hosteler and his/her friend will be waking you up as they come in from bar-hopping and want to check their e-mail. So, in summary, it's a great place if all you need is a place to sleep and get cleaned up.

    Great Value....but...........


    It's 2 or 3 metro stops away from the 'Main Places' such as the old square but dont let that put you off. The Hostel is very 'Boutique' style ( they refer to themselves as a Hotel - Not sure why? ) and is very trendy but lacking any atmosphere. There is a very smart looking communal seating area downstairs which should be 'happening' but again...seriously lacking any atmosphere! It was empty most of the time we were there which was great if you want some peace and read a book etc but theres no music, no vending machines, no coffee in the morning ( ahhh!!! ) ...........but free internet access!
