Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Kampa Garden Prague
Great location, but...
This was our 10th trip to Prague and this time we stayed at Na Kampa Garden. The location is wonderful, but the amenities were definitely lacking. For those who are used to having soap and little toiletries in your rooms, the hotel does not have them. You need to bring your own or purchase there.
The rooms were very clean and neat. The cleaning staff was very pleasant and nice. The desk staff were not particularly helpful, with one exception. All the rest (and we stayed more than a week, so we met them all) were not trained in desk services. For example, we had a problem with our airline and needed the local number for our airline office. The desk clerk told us she did not have a telephone directory!! They did not help with finding places on maps (they had no maps, but couldn't seem to figure out ours).
The breakfasts were okay (same things every day, plus Tang for orange juice)...
Truthfully, you can overlook the breakfasts, but the front desk staff was less than helpful, and we concluded that they simply were not trained in dealing with tourists and/or their questions....
If we had been going to Prague for the first time, the trip might have been worse, but we know there are other hotels...
Even though the location was great, this traveler will not return to this hotel...
Not Quite Perfect, but almost
I'm writing this in the Kampa Garden Hotel on the free internet they provide in reception. The hotel's situation could not be better, it is two minutes from the Charles Bridge at the end of a picturesque square right next to a park on the bank of the river.
The hotel is spotlessly clean with modern functional rooms, and the reception staff are very friendly and helpful, the cleaning staff seem to be also very conciencious changing a lightbulb in our room before we had even reported it.
The main gripe I have is with the breakfasts, the buffet is ok, standard three star stuff, but cold coffee and squash rather than orange juice is rather a let down.
I would definitely stay here again as the pros outweigh the cons by a mile.
EXCELLENT HOTEL IN PRAGUE
We have just returned from a very enjoyable trip to Prague. it was a surprise for my partner's 50th birthday and he was thrilled from the time we arrived. the hotel was in a very good location, just under Charles Bridge, the opposite end from the old town square. from the outside the hotel is not very inspiring but once you enter, you find a very clean, very modern interior. i booked a deluxe room as it was a special occasion and it was HUGE! all newly decorated, we had four large windows and a very spacious bathroom with large corner shower big enough for two. the bonus for me was being able to regulate all the radiators separately. breakfast was good and adequate. the only complaint we have is that there are no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, which we would have loved on our return from a night out as it was very cold. overall the hotel is excellent and we would certainly book again for a return trip to Prague.
This hotel is an excellent value, especially off season. Everything is new and clean. The rooms are no smoking so it smells fresh and clean too. Firm beds, huge pillows, fine breakfast. The location is absolutely the best in Prague. It seemed more like living in a neighborhood but is just steps from the Charles Bridge. Lots of restaurants nearby (if you like fish be sure to try Restaurace Rybarsky Klub, a short walk through the park beside the hotel). We can't wait to go back.
This hotel was everything and more than we could expect. The rooms were modern, spacious, and clean, and lovely and warm for the extremely cold weather in March. It was also very good value compared to other hotels that we considered. The reception was open 24hrs, and all staff were very friendly, looking to help you with any query. The location of the hotel was brilliant - Kampa Island is an oasis to all the noise and crowds in other touristy areas, and we found it an ideal base to explore the rest of the city. Would highly recommend, and if in Prague again we would choose to stay here!
Excellent stay at Kampa Garden
10 of us have just returned from Prague (Sat 4th to 6th March), the hotel was excellent value for money (1590 Czk per night). The location was brilliant - right next to the Charles Bridge. The hotel looks nothing from the outside, but inside it's all freshly decorated and very clean. Breakfast was nothing special - a simple continental breakfast - but it soaked up the alcohol and it was all fresh, with plenty of it. The hotel exceeded all of our expectations. Tomas from Travelcook sorted everything out for us. Would highly recommend both the hotel and Tomas - we will return here later this year!!
Pleasant Stay beyond expectations
We stayed at the hotel for a total of 6 nights. From the reservation with Accom (travel agency who owns/manages the hotel), airport pickup services, the entire stay and airport drop-off, everything went smoothly. Front desk staff was generally pleasant and helpful. Room was very clean and new. I specially appreciate the non-smoking environment. Breakfast was beyond expections with bread, cereals, cold meat, boiled eggs, yoguart, etc... On the last morning when we had to leave for the airport at 4:30 am, the staff was so nice that they packed us sandwich breakfast to take away. What a service!
The hotel is close to Charles Bridge and two tram stops to the Castle, quite convenient. Area is nice and quiet. No graffiti as I've seen in many other areas.
Aside from that, one minor detail was that the Kampa Garden Hotel was a bit far to walk from the Metro Station personally considering hauling the travel bags on cobble stone streets. It is about a 15-min walk from the Station to hotel. Without luggage, there would be no problem. Speaking from experience, when I tried to get to the train station via Metro for my trip to Vienna one morning, I hauled my carry-on to the metro station and it wasn't that much fun.
Overall, I would recommend the hotel wholehearterly.
Very good, helpful staff.
Large and spacious rooms, clean and nice bathroom. The price we paid in end january was very good.
Prague center is not large so just at the other side of the Charles Bridge is also very central. Highly reccomended!
Great Hotel and service
My Wife and I stayed here fron Jan 21 to 24th 2006.From the outside it looks bland BUT inside its nice and renovated in 2005.The staff were very helpful and pleasent(They also sell the transport tickets on reception) Rooms were very warm(You control the heating so as hot as you want).It is kitted out in Ikea so a good standard(minibar,sat TV,Hairdryer).Breakfast was very good.The position of the hotel you cant get better 100 yards from the steps of the Charles Bridge.Walk over the bridge and you are in the old town 5 mins.Go left and you are in Mala Strana ideal for Petrin Tower (10 mins to funicular)and the Castle was up the hill.Nearest metro Malostranska.We had a fantastic time here even tho it was Minus 10 but hey there's lots of walking or the trams to get around if you do need them.Just one last thing,Getting from the Airport was easy for only (20kcs)YES 50 pence.Buy your tickets from the transport counter in the terminal.Walk out of the Terminal to the BUS stop no 119(Big yellow sign you cant miss it) to Dejvicka (metro).TWO stops and you are there(Malostranska)next stop and you are in the old town (Staromestska).All on the same ticket.If we go back we will stay at the Kampa Garden again.
A Good Find
We stayed seven nights at The Hotel Kampa Garden, located on Kampa Island - a great location that is a peaceful oasis yet very near everything. It is directly below the Charles Bridge. There are several excellent and reasonable restaurants within 100 yards of the hotel and it is adjacent to a pleasant park. The hotel only opened in September 2005, so the rooms, furnished in Scan modern are like new and of a decent size. Matresses are very firm. Bathrooms have up to date fixtures including towel warmer and hair dryer. Breakfast was a decent buffet including both hot and cold items. Desk staff was helpful. Their English ranged from just OK to quite good. Two things make the hotel unique. One is that the entire hotel is non smoking--there are no rooms where smoking is permitted. For us, that was a plus and a pleasant surprise. The second is that Room 110 is fully handicapped accessable, meeting all ADA requirements including those for the bathroom. It even has a wheelchair lift to get up the front steps. I would ask for a room at the back of the hotel facing the canal. Those rooms have the best view, especially the ones on the fourth floor (there is an elevator) where you can see the castle and one of the bridge towers. Most front rooms only have a view of the back of the Estonian Embassy. There is some construction at the Embassy with resultant noise (tolerable)beginning about 8:30 AM on weekdays. Can't hear it in the canal facing rooms. We paid 2557 crowns (about $100) until November 1 and the price went down to 1557 crowns afterwards making the hotel a real deal. The hotel was recommended by Tomas at TravelCook who also arranged free (because of the lenght of our stay) pickup at the airport. Tomas was helpful in all respects and very responsive to e-mails.

... a quick look inside, has lots of carvings attached to the main pillars and big stained glass windows above the altar, but not on the sides. Quite dark inside, but overall an impressive building. Wandered down the streets, a mix of old and new buildings and saw small busts of Schubert and Mozart on the sides of modern buildings. Reached the winter palace where we managed to get some tickets to a Mozart and Strauss concert at the Vienna State Opera Golden Hall ...

The only downer of the hole day was the café’s and food vans, they were way over priced but the food was delicious by the end of the day I was exhausted from going all around the zoo and seeing a massive variety of creatures. ...
... brought my Student ID (Even though I am not a student anymore, or as I like to call it, a non-student still in denial) and got my ticket for only $6 which was totally worth even the full price. I spent a solid two hours in there, and got to see some amazing czech artists work. After, I left and had lunch and a few more beers, skyped my mom to come clean about my sketchy travels the day before, and then made my way down to the bridge for a bit to an out around all the young locals.

I was mostly met by strange looks of why was an Australian so interested in finding somewhere to watch Eurovision and thinking I was crazy. After wondering around the city attempting to find a pub to watch Eurovision, we ended up back at the hostel with snacks watching Eurovision with some Canadians and Americans on a Hungarian tv channel in the common room.
... we went back to the hotel because it was very very veer very cold. We then had a good time defrosting and chilling with friends. Then Rachel, Rochelle and I decided to go to the shopping centre for dinner. After dinner I left and let the girls shop while I sat watching tv chilling. Rachel came home with lollies and water for the trip tomorrow and then we went to bed. Tomorrow we are off to Berlin, to see the wall and all the wonderful history ...
