TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN Hotel Kinsky Garden Prague
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Large rooms very clean. The hotel is located on a very busy street. The windows are double pane which helps to block a lot of noise but if you like cool night air when you sleep there is no opening the windows. Our room was equipped with a cooling system but it didn't seem to work. If your staying in the winter probably not a big deal.

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.

Today would be a day of being the typical tourists. Yesterday we booked a tour through our hotel to go to the Karlstejn Castle. The tour company shuttle van picked us up at 8:00am and transported us to the center of town where we were to meet up with a few others. We had about a 30 minute wait till departure from town so we went and did what any …
The sun was shining as we left the hotel in Walldorf this morning about 9:30. Today was a driving day, headed to the city of Prague in the Czech Republic. Most of the drive was accomplished on the German autobahn. While we won't be describing high speeds and the exhilaration, it can be interesting with cars traveling over 100 MPH. Highway …

We made our way back down the stairs as I wanted to read the story of the tower that displayed at each level in the stairwell. A very ...
