Akcent Hotel Prague

... the oldest synagogues in Europe still stand in this area. After a long day, these two tourists head back to the room to rest up.
The next day we take another city tram to the end of the line at Vozovina, the exhibition grounds for Prague up on the plateau. Kind of seedy and in disrepair, but well off the beaten tourist track. Back on the tram and back to the beaten tourist track.
We walk across the Charles Bridge into the ...
... Zlata Ulika). This street looks like the real disney world. At the end of the day, we were exhausted from the 8 hours of touring!
The next morning we woke up early to see the Charles bridge with less people, close to dawn. We then got a pastry breakfast and walked up the Lesser Town bridge tower museum for a great view of the city. At 11, we headed back to old town for a tour of the Jewish quarters with a much less vivacious tour guide. One incredible site there ...
Hello! Well we had a lovely couple of days in Prague and are now on our way to Paris on the train. Prague is a very picturesque city and quite overrun with tourists....we were thinking that coming here in the peak times in July to August would be pretty unbearable. As usual we tried to steer clear of the really touristy areas and got great use of our day pass for the tram/train. The views over prague from the castle are beautiful and we were fortunate to be up there ...
... completely different. I thought I wouldn’t have a place ...
... way, so we just decide to cut our losses and take a cab. When we finally get home, it's around 6am, so we hit the sack. We have the hostel pretty much between us and the Aussies, so we could be as loud as we liked, and didn't have to sneak into the place as usual. First day of Prague, successful.
The next few days were spent exploring the city and the people of Prague. Surprisingly, a lot of people spoke decent English in the city. Everyone seemed pretty nice ...

Hotel was very basic but was fit for purpose, comfortable beds and decent bathroom. It had a good breakfast but the staff were very rude and unhelpful.

Historical Traveler Reviews Akcent Hotel Prague
I have just returned home from a 5-day trip to Prague. I didn't know what to expect as I had never been to an Eastern European Country before, but I had the best time. From the airport to the hotel it is a 20 min car journey and should cost no more than 650Kc's. The hotel itself is in a small residential/business town called Smichov, and at first we thought that we were out of the way of everything when we looked at the map, but looks can be deceiving! The nearest metro station (Andel) is right outside the hotel, and so is the bus station (We didnot hear any noise at all) and for approx 14 czech crowns, it will take you into the main part called Mustek in about 5 minutes. The metro's are clean, efficient and fast (much better than the ones in Newcastle!) From there you can pretty much walk to the main attractions i/e Charles Bridge, the old town and the astronlogical clock. You could walk there from the hotel, if you are pretty fit and the weather is nice, it took about 25 mins, but there are loads of nice bars and cafes along the way. The hotel itself, is clean, and has a minimal style to it. The staff were lovely, and told us where to get off the metro. Our room was a decent size and the bathroom was spotless! It even had a mini bar, which didn't cost the earth! In Smichov itself there is a shopping centre where you can find all kinds of shops and bars, and feel like one of the locals too. I would definately go to Prague again, but maybe for a long weekend as 5 days was a tad too long.
Clean and good value
We stayed here on a long weekend. We were suprised at the huge airy rooms and the good standard of cleaning by the hotel staff. The maid came in every day! The public transport system is cheap and simple to navigate. Remember to go out of the correct exit at Andel tube station to find the Hotel. Breakfast is nice and there is hot bacon , sausage and scrambled egg as well as the usual cold selection.
The Hotel is idealy situated just out of the town (as the transport system is so good) and there is a great Beer bar round the corner which does really tasty snacks.
We stayed at the Akcent Hotel over New Year. It is a good quality 3 star hotel. The rooms are large, clean and tidy. The bathroom is also quite large. As the hotel only opened in 2005 the rooms are still in a good condition. They are 'travel-lodge' style. As another member already mentioned we also had to ask for an extra pillow, they are a little flat.
Went to this hotel 24th to the 27th DEc for an Xmas break. Its a nice hotel bit like a travel lodge in the rooms apart from mini bar (very reasonable prices)I must strss the hotel is very clean as well and the rooms are large with big windows and plenty heating (view not to hot) Bathroon good with nice shower hair dryer and free smellies to use. Hotel resturant is fantastic one of the best meals we had and again cheap beer is cheap as well in the bar area. The only one fault i had was the location about half an hours walk to town so if your not a good walker dont go. On the Plus side if you dont want to walk to town there is a shoppin centre and local bars and resturants to keep one happy. All in all cant fault the place. Must see is the park we saw red squirrles took the train to the top, there is plents to do up there as well, walk down you will love it we did it was romantic in the snow (cold !!)boat trip good and not bad value. See the clock in the old square but dont bother having a drink £5.00 for 2 halfs of larger !! most places its bout 70p but if you look about you can do Prague on the cheap hor dogs burgers etc sold all over for about 30p average meal with beer about £5.00 each that was Steak though. There are to many thingd to see and do to mention so just go you wont regret it. Oh if you fly BMI be prepared to be ripped off on the plane no free food or any thing no TV. £3.00 for a samll beer and £3.50 for a stale butty (take your own)Watch Taxi drivers if you get on from air port pay no more than 650k we got ripped off like many others and i knew about the scams !! still got stitched double what we should have paid ! dont let that put you off. Oh if your bothers about rowdy night life dont be we either missed it or it dont sxist where are all the bars ?? its more of a eaty drinky place thenon to clubs if you fancy them (we didnt) To tired by 11pm anyway. Have a good time !
I dont give a five start rating, easily, but this place deserves it.
The Akcent Hotel is located quite a distance from Prague city centre but it is very convenient to get into the major sights of Prague from here as the metro station is situated just in front of the hotel. It is also located within walking distance to a large shopping complex. My husband and I were impressed with the room. It was large, bright and clean. However, this hotel does not provide room service. So when we needed a jug of hot water, we had to get it ourselves from the hotel restaurent which is at the ground floor (the rooms are on the 7th floor).I found the pillows to be really soft. My husband and I had to fold the pillow in halves when we slept! The breakfast buffet was reasonably good which included a nice selection of cheeses, breads,cereals, scrambled eggs, sausages, coffee and juices. Overall, we had a nice stay in Prague and we would definitely recommend the Akcent Hotel.
What had all the makings to be an OK hotel - one of which being the good reviews posted so far - ended up being something to avoid.
Top Hotel should be 4 star
Everything about this hotel is great, from our room, the location and the food served in the morning. The hotel is based within a 10 minute metro ride to all major attractions. The metro station (andel) is right outside the hotels doors which is perfect!
The rooms are spacey, the beds are extra comfy and the en-suite bathroom is modern and very clean. We even had a balcony looking across the city (truely stunning).
The buffet breakfast kept us going for most of the day, a selection of cereal, breads, hams, cheeses and coffee. All very nice!!
If your going to prague, go to the akcent hotel.
Prague and Hotel Akcent
Stayed at the Hotel Akcent for a long weekend in Oct 05. The hotel is pretty modern with spacious, nicely decorated, clean rooms with cable TV (we even had a balcony/terrace). The staff speak excellent English, there is a decent restaurant and bar on site and a cheap one next door. The nearest Metro station is about 10 feet from the front door, not that we used it as we walked almost everywhere (or the occasional tram from 2 mins walk away, next to a big shopping centre).
The city itself is superb. Despite the influx of McDonalds, they have struck an excellent balance between the beautiful old town sights to see and the modern infrastructure. Whilst still retaining excellent nightlife (including the cheap, but very good, food and beer).
Highly recommended on all counts.
Stayed in Akcent hotel for 3 nights in Aug05. Got no 100 bus from airport to Zlicin metro station then metro to Andel, hotel is only a few steps away from metro exit (be sure to follow exit signs for bus station, not shopping centre). Room was clean, had tv, hairdryer & towels changed daily. Went to hotel restaurant, food was delicious & very cheap. We mostly used the metro to get about since it was soooo close to hotel, 3 stops took us into the new square. The tram line, which we used for getting to the castle & petrin hill, is just down the road outside a major shopping centre (lots of restaurants on 3rd floor). There is also a brewery on the other side of the bus station just across the road & there is a bar/snooker hall attached to hotel. Altho hotel is a good bit out of town, with the metro being on your doorstep it's so handy & it suited us fine to sight see thru the day, pop into town for some dinner or shopping then head back for a few drinks & didnt have far to stagger home! Would definitely go back :o)
