Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Kinsky Garden Prague
Kinsky Garden - August 2004
My wife and I stayed at the Kinsky Garden during August 2004.
It is a nice hotel in an ideal quiet location. The rooms were were spotless and the breakfast was good. As we tend to spend most of our time out of the hotel this is all we are really looking for.
However, if you want to be in the busy centre this is not the hotel for you.
Having said that it is very close to a tram stop and there are a number of excellent restaurants nearby. The added benefit is that these establishments are much cheaper than those in the main tourist area.
Also the hotel is derectly opposite the entrance to the park and it is a lovely walk to the castle from here. (although uphill all the way!!!)
We strolled to the Charles Bridge in under 15 minutes. It is a pleasant walk, either along the riverside or through Mala Strana. But please note you do not have to cross the Charles Bridge to enter the Old Town there are a number of other bridges much closer, and with considerably less foot traffic.
We intend to visit prague agian in the near future and would certainly stay at the Kinsky Garden again.
Stayed there recently (June 04). Hotel is OK, nice and clean. It is located on the quiet street. However, it is not close to the center. At least half an hour walk to the Charles bridge. My opinion - too expensive, based on the location.
What a wonderful hotel the service was second to none. Especially Jirca(George) the barman and his lovely wife. The hotel was positioned just right not in the middle of things but not to far away. The restaraunt food was tasty especially the frit dumplings. Nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely stay again.
Wonderful Hotel. In a quiet section of Prague, but close to all the major attractions by tram or subway. Very friendly staff and nice rooms. The transport from the train station and to the airport at 5 in the morning was very much appreciated! Nice bar and restaurant on the premises.
Just back from 6 nites at the Kinsky. A great location with a tram stop 1 minute from the door. Several excellent restaurants within a short walk. Have you tried frajitas with bananas and coconut? The Cantina has them. Staff was very helpful, breakfasts were excellent. Cleanliness is above reproach.
Nice place, close to city centre
This is a nice hotel and conveniently located for the centre. It's on the west side of the river, quite close to the bridge to the south of Charles Bridge - maybe 10-15 minutes walk to reach Wencleslas Square.
Breakfast is served until 11.00am, bedrooms are not large but adequate.
Taxi cost from the airport was 550Kc when I was there in Dec 03.

... time I wrote you I was about to head to Prague. Well that is going to happen again soon (like in five days). It's interesting that the people I have bonded with most over here are not people in my program, well besides Kristina and Sylvia and a few others, But I have made some friends in Prague that I will have forever and I have a hard time staying away. My love affair with Prague is growing big. I cut some of my travel plans out this summer so I could stay there ...
... the bridge at least twice every day in Prague.
After our 1 full day in Prague we took 3 trains to Krakow Poland... (separate entry for our time in Poland)
We came back to Prague after Krakow and spent 2 more full days.
During our second stay in Prague we stayed in really sweet hostel called AHOY hostel. It was smack dabb in the middle of all the tourist attractions! Also it had a kitchen where we could make hot meals... we made a rice risotto which we ...
... you're limited on time or traveling with small children, we'd recommend but otherwise get out on foot and explore the city as it was meant to be. Finishing up our evening, we are left with no shortage of good eats and drink in Prague. As one of our fellow riders mentioned burning 2,000 calories on the morning's ride to Karlstejn, we figured a few carbs were in order. Pizza Nuova near the Palladium shopping center was an easy five minute walk from Hotel Clement. ...
... river cruising. Lunch in the dining car was an ordeal. Two waiters, one cook and only one burner on the stove, a comparison to the three stooges wouldn't be inappropriate. After two hours of playing cards and drinking beer, the food that was served was actually pretty tasty.
After arriving in Prague, it was a short metro trip into the city center. U Tri Bubnu (the three drums) Hotel is located right in the old town. The staff had ...
... it was a real treat to have cream cheese and blueberry!
Most of our city touring centered around the Old Town Square. It was surrounded by old buildings and in the middle of the square was home to street performers being statues or singing or doing magic tricks. I was attacked by a man dressed as an elephant here, but at least he hit Katie with his trunk to make me feel better about the heart attack he gave me. We walked along famed St. Charles Bridge ...
