TravelPod Member ReviewsArcadia Residence Prague
A guy holding a sign with my name on it met me at the arrivals lounge then drove me to my hotel - the Arcadia Residences. We parked in a little street next to a lovely church in the old town where the manager was waiting to greet me. So began the best check in I've ever experienced at any hotel in the world.
The main entrance of the hotel is in a passageway between the streets Havelská and Kozna which contains a few shops and a restaurant. I was provided with the usual map of the area, along with a couple of pages of useful info like where the nearest supermarket was, the best place to change money, a list of nearby restaurants broken down by cuisine and price, as well as the best places to go for a drink.
This was followed by a tour of my room - a converted attic of immense proportions. A small entry hall opens onto a large kitchen/dining area with a wooden table and six chairs, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and cupboards filled with glass ware and china. There are also a couple of lounges thrown in and a door that opens onto a wooden deck.
Down a corridor and to the right is the bathroom which is very large and modern. Against the wall outside this is a wooden work table next to three small windows that have views of the Old Town Square clock tower. To the left is a lounge area with two setees, a coffee table and a flat screen TV with satellite. Next to this Is a double bed and a concealed walk in robe. I was a little reluctant paying 150 Euros a night for a room in Prague as I was budgeting to stay under $AUD200 if possible. So glad I paid the few extra dollars as this place is definitely worth it.
Already the service was more than I expected. But wait! There's more!! I was taken on a walking tour of the immediate vicinity, starting with the gorgeous Old Town Square. My guide pointed out the landmarks that would guide me back to the hotel if I got lost wandering around the old city - obviously did a good job as I haven't been lost once since!
Breakfast is included in the room price, which is not unusual. But once again the Arcadia surprised and delighted me. Two girls arrived at my door around 8.30 with two hampers which contained a large omelette, cold meats and cheese, fruit, yoghurt, croissant with a basket of conserves, pastry, bread, orange juice and a little thermos of strong black coffee which they set up on the dining table. The Arcadia residence is a great hotel with amazing service in a fabulous location. What more can you really ask for?

Lovely large apartments close to the Old Town Square. Love the towel heater in the bathroom, the fully stocked kitchen and the high ceilings. We don't have much of a view - we'd have to pay a lot more for that - but it's very quiet. Pasquale, the manager, and his staff, are lovely and helpful.

Historical Traveler Reviews Arcadia Residence Prague
Arcadia Residence-Spot on
It was our first visit to Prague, and the Hotel was totally spot on. We had booked a 2-bedroom apartment, and were travelling with 2 kids. Pasquale was very friendly, and responded to the email very efficiently. We had pre-booked the taxi, which was waiting for us at the airport.
The hotel is only 3 tram stops away the centre of city, with a very efficient tram service. Hence the distance from the city centre was not an issue. The hotel was in a quiet area of Prague. The rooms were nice and airy and well furnished. The best was the breakfast served in the room.
Pasquale was very friendly, and gave us the advice as what places to visit, and also provided us with the tram tickets. . He even provided with a network cable to connect my laptop to the internet provided in the room He was spot on with the service, and all the staff went out of the way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. It was a very personal five star service.
Would recommend Arcadia residence to anyone visiting Prague, without any hesitation.
Warmth welcome and quality of sevice
First, I was impress by the kindness of the owner, Pasquale.
He was there to greet me at the airport, took time to give me helfull information for a tourist in Prague and was concern to give the best quality of services.
My appartment was spacious, very clean and well equiped.
The breakfast included was very good, quite substantial and for all tastes.
Just 3 tram stations from Charles Bridge in a quiet area.
If I ever go back to Prague, I will certainly book at this hotel.
Arcadia Residence is the best place we ever stayed at in Prague!
We had a one-bedroom appartment. It was spacious, spotlessly clean, and nicely furnished.
The service is extremely friendly, but not obstrusive. The breakfast is very, very good; we were looking forward to it every morning. (Sometimes it comes with home-made tiramisu which is just excellent.)
We didn't miss anything. And if we had I feel that we could have asked for it any minute.
The hotel is situated in the Vysehrad quarter, right at the foot of Vysehrad castle (which is also well worth a visit and still relatively quiet). It is maybe a 15-20 minutes walk away from Old Town Square, 5-10 minutes from Charles Square. There are two tram stops very close by that take you into the city centre if you do not want to walk. There are a couple of restaurants and pubs around that are both good value and serve excellent food - something which is hard to find in the city centre.
We would like to thank Pasquale and his Mama and the hotel staff for this wonderful stay. Whenever we come to Prague we will stay here again and I will recommend this hotel to just everybody.
After many friendly informative email's between myself and Pasquale (proprietor of Arcadia Residence) we landed earlier than expected at the airport and where greeted by a lovely lady who showed us to our transfer vehicle - a Mercedes!
We then had a mini tour of the city which was a nice surprise. We arrived at Arcadia Residence feeling relaxed and refreshed.
We were greeted by Pasquale, showed to our lovely room and given lots of helpful information and advice. I didn't have to lug my case anywhere at anytime! The lift is delightful, an unusual design.
The room was excellent, comfortable, modern yet has charm and style. The two bedrooms were roomy, the skylights were fabulous, beds very comfy, powershower was smallish but great and there was always hot water, kitchenette well equipped, the balcony was a nice surprise, it even had a view of the castle in the distance.
Breakfast could be ordered for anytime you liked up to 1pm, it consisted of breads, sweets, fruit, yoghurt, jams, cheeses & cold meats, tea, coffee, juices, and the omelets were great.
Arcadia Residence has everything you need to get started exploring Prague. Pasquale help us with travel/tram tickets, gave us so much good advice, recommended places to go, things to see, best shops nearby etc. He gave us a guide book, tram timetables and even took us up into the old fortress that is just behind the hotel and showed us the best way to the best view of the river! He is very knowledgeable and always has a warm smile and good advice at hand!
The area that surrounds Arcadia Residence is safe, clean and quiet. The Fortress is well worth a visit as the views are great and the old churchyard is a must to see, it is right on the doorstep, just 3 mins walk. We found a fabulous little bar on the next street to the hotel, the service was great and the food was fabulous, and so cheap, pint of beer was about 65p.
There are 2 tram stops about 5mins walk away that take you direct into the centre, they are cheap, quick and safe. Also there are two mini supermarkets nearby where you can get any essentials. There are also a few bars/restaurants and we found them all friendly, excellent prices and all had loads of atmosphere which some of the more central bars lacked.
All in all we had the most amazing time, and wouldn't hesitate to go back to Arcadia Residence. We got engaged while in Prague and it was also my fiances birthday, Pasquale gave us gifts of wine and chocolates to congratulate us. He even gave us a postcard of the landmark where my fiance proposed!
The whole experience had a personal touch, style, luxury and class. Definitely a 5* hotel and service but at 3* prices. We will definitely return.
Ahoy! The Arcadia Residence in Prague lives up to its name with simple pleasures and pastoral views. Arcadia's surrounding neighborhood appeals to the traveler who wants to mingle with the local color yet still have access to the live music, museums and hot nightlife attractions in Prague. Five minutes walk to the river and a few tram stops to the hustling and bustling Prague Old Town Square and business districts, Arcadia is the number one alternative for the smart traveler.
Arcadia offers a home-like atmosphere as its staff is friendly and welcoming especially the host. Arcadia staff offers personal assistance to getting a full experience of Prague. They also give travel trips and provide tram tickets for outings in and around Prague. Fax services, laundry, maid service and continental breakfast are also available for guest stays. In fact, Arcadia's continental breakfast can feed a small family for two days.
Its sunset views expand across the river with a view of Prague's Castle and the city's thousand spires from the small balconies. Arcadia offers every convenience as larger hotels without the expense. Rooms vary in size and cost. Newly renovated, the bedrooms are clean with bright lighting. Common rooms have modern appliances and all the conveniences of home such as baths, showers, kitchenettes, internet and cable television access. Pastoral and relaxing, the residence surrounded by a quiet neighborhood remains a few minutes from the bustle of Prague's business and tourist districts. Yet, the hotel is close enough to every main attraction within a short walk, tram or taxi ride.
We can't wait to go back!
5 star treatment
We are just back from a city break in the beautiful city of Prague. This was my third visit in a year and after finding Arcadia apartments by chance on the internet, I have stayed there each time.
The apartments are run by a lovely warm and friendly Italian family. We had a two bedroom apartment this time and the decor and standard of service would compare with a 5 star hotel. The breakfast which is included in the price, is a feast, with hot and cold dishes, juice, fruit, tea, coffee, breads and more. Amazing!
We were three tram stops away from one of the main attractions -Charles Bridge. The apartmant is also within a short walk of the ancient castle in the area of Vsyehrad. It's stunning.
I won't be staying antwhere else when I ever return to Prague.
Wonderful family-run hotel
My wife and I have just returned from a five night stay at the Arcadia Residence. It is a family run hotel with a friendly atmosphere.They did everything to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. The room was very clean and nicely decorated, with a delicious breakfast delivered directly to your room at the time of your choice. The hotel is located in a quiet and safe part of the city right at
the foot the Vysehrad castle which is a beautiful place to take a long relaxing walks through the park and gasp at the incredible panoramic views of Prague. The city center is only a couple tram stops away. We will definitely be coming back to this hotel.
Top quality family owners
You cannot fail to enjoy a stay at the Arcadia Residence.
It is run by Pasquale Gusmano, the atmosphere is so friendly that we felt like invited guests .
The place is spotlessly clean, with the added touches of beautiful flower arrangements.
Each morning , at a time of your choosing , Pasquale's mother will deliver a superb breakfast trolley to your door.
The area ,Vyseshrad, is quiet and safe with many restaurants and bars , where you can eat economically.Just a few minutes away you can visit Vysehrad , It offers visitors one of the most beautiful urban panoramas .
Prague centre is only a few stops away on the frequent tram service.
Check it out !
Il residence è davvero molto pulito e curato anche nei particolari,le camere sono accoglienti e decisamente confortevoli.
La gestione è semplicemente fantastica,il proprietario (Pasquale) è una persona disponibile e sempre pronto a dare consigli in modo da rendere il soggiorno praghese quanto piu' interessante possibile.
La colazione è servita in camera a qualsiasi ora e la mamma di Pasquale prepara ogni giorno un dolce diverso e meravigliosamente buono!!
Il bilancio è decisamente positivo e consigliamo
vivamente il soggiorno presso l'Arcadia residence.
Un residence meraviglioso !
E' un posto veramente meraviglioso, in soli 5 minuti si raggiunge il centro di Praga, la zona è tranquilla e silenziosa. La colazione servita in camera veramente buona e ricca ..soprattutto il Dolce. La famiglia che lo gestisce è stupenda e vi sapranno suggerire e aiutare in ogni momento del soggiorno. Meraviglioso luogo e gestori.

The Attic, Arcadia Residence, Prague
A guy holding a sign with my name on it met me at the arrivals lounge then drove me to my hotel - the Arcadia Residences - in a late model E Class. Sweet. It’s hot. 36 degrees hot. We parked in a little street next to a lovely church where the manager Marek was waiting to …
... cream. They were interesting, but not sure if we would go back for seconds! The tour didn't take us to the Castle so we walked over the Charles Bridge to check it out ourselves. We had a nice wander around the buildings, through the many arch ways, beyond the Cathedrals and into the gardens, where we found amazing views over the city. After taking our pictures we headed back to the tram and made our way to the hostel. After our heavy lunch we all went to the supermarket ...
... is too. As for how I would get to Budapest, I figured I'd just show up at the train station the day I was leaving and figure it out then. But for now I still had one more day and night in Prague and didn't want to think about leaving. I've met so many awesome people here and have seen/done so many awesome things that I really don't want to leave. But who knows, Budapest could be even better! After everyone made their plans we headed out to have one last day of sight ...
