Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aida Prague
Loved the view over the City
The Apollo is a modern building well located just a few minutes walk from a direct tram link into the City (trams every 10 minutes) - about 15 minutes journey. Service was good in the hotel - if a little basic. Breakfast plentiful and varied. No bar or restaurant but drinks chiller selling a selection of cold drinks. Good standard of decor and reasonably sized rooms. A few guests were noisy but this could happen anywhere! We thought Prague was a truly wonderful place and will be returning so would stay at the hotel again.
The staff was helpful, but I did not enjoy the neighborhood. It was like staying in the suburbs - no local pubs or restaurants to speak of. The rooms are small, but clean. I will stay closer to town next time.
Answering the phone?
We did not actually stay at the Apollo. We booked the reservation and then found out the hotel had never confirmed with expedia. We attempted to contact the Apollo over two days and NO ONE ANSWERED THE PHONE. We cancelled and booked somewhere else. If an emergency happens we would like for our family to be able to reach us and that is hard to do if they are not going to answer the phone.
Visited for three days and four nights, 10th October 04. It's starting to get a bit chilly at this time of year. Two full days is enough to see Prague, unless you intend to travel out of the city.
Plenty of walking so take comfy shoes, lots of old cobbled streets, great architecture friendly people, good food.
The Apollo Hotel is out of town but only ten minutes away by tram or metro, take the tram for the views, tickets are on a time basis, 15 min is about 16p each and you can buy them at the hotel or tobacco kiosks or metro stations.
The Apollo is very clean, the staff are very friendly and the buffet breakfast is plentiful and of a good quality. To get there from the airport, walk out to the buses and go to the right hand end of the row, get on bus 119, you can pay the driver. This takes you to the start of the Metro line A, (most will get off here) your bus ticket will also cover metro travel, change at Mueseum for line C, and go to Koblisy. Walk out of the station and turn right, you start to get a feel for the old Prague now, tram lines in the middle of the road, walk down hill for about 1/4 mile to a road junction, two roads come from the right, cross both of these, on the far right corner you will see the Troya hotel/resturant, walk down the side street keeping this on your right. It does look a bit bleak and dark - trust me, the side road is a bit steep go left at the first corner and the Apollo is about 200yds on the left. From this street you get a great view over the city, it's best at night when you can't see the factory chimneys.
I would use the Apollo again, the rooms are usual no frills standard, there was a kettle, tea and coffee, TV and two very comfortable beds, you'll be so tired you will sleep anywhere - enjoy
Basic but clean.
If your a group of British tourists be prepared to pay a room deposit of 20 Euro per person or you wont get in. The rooms are clean but take ear plugs with you as it can be noisy. I was disappointed with the miserable staff who didn't seem to like anyone be you British or otherwise. The employees should realise it's the tourists who pay their wages. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were basic and clean. Treat it as nothing more than a base and you shouldn't be too disappointed. Breakfasts mediocre. Wouldn't stay again aim for something slightly closer to centre.
Clean and friendly
My husband and I stayed at the Apollo with two friends last January. The hotel was clean, warm and the staff were friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was plentifull. All this for the same price for three nights as we pay in London for one. We enjoyed it so much that I am returning next January with three friends and have recommended it to others.
Small, noisy, not recommended....
We stayed in this hotel in early April this year. It was booked for us through an agent. The website boasts restaurant and bar. There is no restaurant, and the bar is a fridge behind the small reception desk, which had run out of beer. The rooms were the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in. It was not possible to open our suitcases on the floor, only on the bed as this was the only area big enough to do so - (they were two single beds pushed together). The beds were sort of in wooden box like structures and on the way from the bathroom to his side of the bed, my boyfriend whacked his knee off this box , due to the lack of space, and it is quite bruised now. The walls were paper thin. The two guys who were staying in the room next to us made alot of noise especially when they were coming in at 4 am, as did the british stag party who were running up and down the corridor between each others rooms through the night. The night porter did nothing to try and quieten them down, just jokingly said to them the next night that he hoped they would be quieter that night. I will say that the rooms were clean, but that is the only good thing I have to say obout the place.
The one advantage of being in a horrible hotel is that you don't want to spend any time in it. This gave us all the more time to enjoy beautiful prague. Avoid this hotel.

Prague / Praha - What a spectacular city! We've been here for two days and 3 nights and could spend longer, but will move along tomorrow.The city has an austere elegance packed with dramatic and traumatic history that sometimes seems etched on the faces of some of the older people.The castle we saw today is apparently the biggest in the world. We' …
... and prearranged transport are all easily accessible. Having never been to Prague, we booked an airport transfer with Prague Airport Transfer. Highly recommended from TripAdvisor and more importantly the TA travel forum, we were met at the arrival hall and quickly whisked away by private car directly to our hotel. A review of Prague Airport Transfer and others will be coming in the next week, we'll post a link on the complete trip report. Meg and I ...
... we met Geoff and Jo. The Ryan Air flight took around 2 hours. We were met at the airport in Prague by a car that took us to our apartment. We are staying in a very central place, only a couple of hundred metres from the Old Town Square, and within walking distance of everything: great!
We dumped our bags and then some old friends of Lidka's arrived with plates of ...
... plus he explained to us what tram number and stop we'd need to get back. Sold! The tour was very history based about the city, also known as Bohemia. Thanks to constant invasion by numerous countries and powers, including Germany in World War 2 and then Russian communism almost immediately after, the Czech Republic didn't become the nation it is today until the early nineties. Very young for a European country! We walked around seeing so many ...
... the clock tower, but we couldn’t see all the details at night. Afterwards, we were still quite awake so we experienced some Prague nightlife.
I love the city. Even though I've only seen much of it at night, I'm fascinated by the glorious architecture and statues. I can't wait to see more of it tomorrow!
PS-- Pictures aren't uploading easily right now due to the slow WiFi at the hostel. I'll upload everything when back in Salzburg!
