    Historical Traveler Reviews Archibald City Hotel Prague

    Great Hotel & Location

    from

    Stayed at the Archibald for 2 nights on16/9, Hotel is in an excellent central location about 5 mins walk to Wenceslas Sq and approx. 15 mins easy walk to Old Town Sq. Hotel staff very efficient - and yes, not over friendly but we did get a smile from the receptionist despite what previous reviews say! The hotel is new and spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable. Its on a fairly busy road but rooms are well soundproofed with Aircon, we were on the 5th floor and our room was not overlooking the road so no problem. Breakfast was good, fairly wide choice of hot & cold food. Overall excellent value and a very comfortable base to explore this fabulous city.

    Close to perfect!

    from

    Stayed for four nights during the hottest july days (over 30 degrees celsius) and really appreciated the airconditioning! The hotel is new, bright and in neutral colours. The staff seemed a little reserved, but I think this is rooted in the czech nature. They were very helpful, but could probably profit on a smiling course. Not that we cared, we didn't go to Prague to make life lasting friends with the hotel staff. The location was perfect, our room was perfect, the breakfast was perfect (at least for me - lotsa eggs and bacon. (The Significant Other would probably disagree to some extent.....)) We will certainly stay at Archibald on our next visit to this enchanting city. B&P, Norway

    I recommend this hotel

    from

    I have just returned from a week at the Archibald City. It is a very good 4 stars hotel with a very good location in the downtown of Prague, just about 2 minutes to Wenceslas Square. I have to underline its excellent location. It is actually a new hotel and everything it's bright new and very clean. An excellent continental breakfast is served. The staff is very nice and helpful; pitty that the bartender (an woman) wasn't nice at all. I recommend this hotel for business or pleasure. r

    I enjoyed my stay at the Archibald

    from

    Stayed at the Archibald City hotel last week while in Prague. Hotel is very clean and the room was a nice size. Bathroom great with a powerful shower. TV, Mini Bar and Safe in the room plus lots of storage space. The only thing missing in the room was a kettle which would have been nice to have.

    Breakfast was included in our rate - but nothing special really. Decided to give it a miss for the rest of our stay. Go to a place called Bohemia Bagel for a great breakfast instead! Overall though, a great central hotel which is classed as a 4 star. Paid £186 for 4 nights through British Airways so can't really complain. Would stay there again. Hotel staff very friendly and can arrange for a car to take you back to the airport for a reasonable cost.

    A comfortable place, but poor service at this new hotel and watch the Bill

    from

    We stay here for one night only, so what we have to say may not be representative.

    Its a 4* hotel so is should be a reasonable place to stay and certainty it is smart, clean and new and the breakfast was great and the location is reasonably nice and central.

    Things that where not great:

    1. Shower was broken.

    2. They managed to give our room to someone else also, who opened the door and walked in on us when we where in bed. No explanation or apology given other than - it was a mistake.

    3. Cancelled our room keys at 7:00 am in the morning so we could not get back in after breakfast. Again fixed, but no explanation or apology.

    4. Most importantly they changed the credit card slip after I signed and added about 10% to the total bill without my approval. (This seemed a little rude given the service I received)

    This is a new hotel so perhaps they are still figuring some things out. This can explan all but the last point.

    Prague is a great city with lots of hotels, based I my experience here, go to prague stay a long time, but pick another hotel

    Did the job

    from

    Clean and new, convenient central location with a nice breakfast. Clinical, business-like atmosphere - a bit like a posher version of a Hotel Ibis. The area is slightly dodgy - i.e. a few young men looking for ladies of the night, but nothing threatening. Would recommend it for a good-value central base in Prague. Within walking distance of old town and other beautiful sights of the city. Some staff were friendly, some were not.

    Excellent location

    from

    Stayed at this hotel Good Friday to Easter Monday,excellent value for money,central,modern,clean.

    Bar was not always open after 11.30pm but plenty of other bars in the area. Excellent restaurant not far from hotel Kyvadlo {[---------------]}very good value for money. We ate twice in Old time square near the astronomical clock these were both very good but cost twice the price of Kyvadlo.

    Incompetant

    from

    We booked a stay in this hotel several months in advance for a stay over the new year holiday period. However when we arrived we were told that they had made a mistake with our booking and they had no rooms for us.

    The girls behind the desk couldn't give us an explanation and didn't seem to be apologetic. We were moved to a different hotel (which was of a lower class), but fortunately it was in the Prague 1 area which is actually much nicer and less busy than the area the Hotel Archibald is in. If you do decide to stay at the Hotel Archibald I would suggest that you double check your booking.

    Brand new reasonable cost

    from

    4 star hotel opened in sept 2005 very clean,staff exceptionally helpful,breakfast excellent, 5 minute walk from wenceslas square therefore nice & central.

    would recommend this to anyone as a quality but cheap break.

    Good City Hotel

    from

    This hotel has recently been refurbished, so everything is currently brand new. This is an excellent hotel for exploring the city. It is close to Wenceslas Square (but not too close to feel at the centre of the tourist area). The staff were all very friendly and helpful and all spoke English. There is a complementary breakfast, which is ok, certainly enough to keep the hunger off for a couple of hours. Rooms were clean and maid service was also good. For the price this hotel was excellent value.

The way he describes the conditions of the area the Jewish people lived in, there is no mistaking that it was a ghetto in the 1200s. Originally the walls around the area were said to protect the Jewish people inside from sicknesses outside the walls. Soon enough however, the walls served the purpose of keeping the Jewish people inside without permission to leave. ...

    I started the day off by reading where the best places to meet people in the city are, and some fun local spots. I kept reading about this beer place that had the biggest selection in Prague,and had ...

    I can honestly say that this has been far from the most fun i've ever had traveling. The trip has been hard physically and emotionally. and it continues. Time to run to catch my flight. Will update with pictures later.
