TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN PLUS Hotel Meteor Plaza Prague
Fantastic location, air con, good wifi + computer access. Tidy, clean and brilliant breakfast. Spacious rooms and a cheap wine and cocktail bar located on ground floor. Loved our stay here.

It was many years ago but we found the hotel very clean, staff very helpful, and the neighborhood quiet inspite of the fact that it was in the middle of town.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Hotel Meteor Plaza Prague
Below Expected Standards
Good location, nice outside appearence. Rooms (243 & 244) rather small and had a let down look. Room 243 had an unpleasant moisture smell/odor throughout our 4 days stay. Breakfast was good. Hotel garage-parking limited & expenseive. No room service. Reception staff helpful but porter service uninterested & indifferent. All in all, there are far better hotels in the vicinity.
Bad hotel in an excellent location
I can't imagine how someone could give this place a positive review unless, of course, they had enjoyed too much absinthe. I can only presume that this hotel has rooms of vastly different quality but that still does not account for the difference of opinion on the buffet breakfast.
My room on the second floor was long, very narrow and sparse with thin nylon carpet. There was no room for the small TV apart from on brackets high on the wall way above eye level. The furniture was old and of dark heavy wood that made the room seem even smaller and grim. The twin beds were pushed against either wall with a small nightstand in between, a desk at the end of one bed and the minibar the other. We called it the cell. The room and bathroom were very clean though and the shower (no bath) was good with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. On looking into other rooms during the maid service they all seemed very similar to mine although they varied in shape enormously - but were all similarly furnished. All in all the worst hotel room I have ever stayed in.
The breakfast was dismal with a very limited selection of very poor quality produce. The orange juice, which was of the reconstituted powder type, frequently ran out and was slow to be refilled. Everything seemed as though it was of the cheapest quality available. The staff did work hard to keep the buffet going but it seemed disorganised and each morning they seemed surprised by the volume of people and that things would run out. Rather than replacing things as plates became empty they would wait until there was nothing left, then take the plate into the kitchen for it to reappear 15/20 minutes later. This meant you never got a full choice of the limited buffet offerings.
The crowning glory of my stay was when the night porter asked me if I wanted him to arrange for some female company to join me in the jacuzzi of the health suite on returning to the hotel about midnight.
I really can't imagine how other people would be happy with this place.
Great Hotel - Don't Be Misled
Whoever wrote "WARNING - AVOID AT ALL COSTS" and "Small Dirty Rooms - Stay At Your Peril" must have visited a different BW Meteor Plaza, Prague as their comments do not apply to our experience and yes, we do know what to expect from a 4 star hotel.
Our en suite room was well sized with a king size bed, which we had not specifically asked for, and was spotlessly clean. As for being able to hear other guests in their rooms, you would not have know there was anyone else staying in the hotel as all we heard was the fountain in the pleasant patio/garden area, when we had our window open, which we overlooked from the fourth floor. As there were high temperatures this past weekend, we were pleased to have air conditioning. In fact it is worth visiting this hotel if only to experience the vastness and choice of the breakfast buffet, where all tastes and appetites are catered for.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel with its great location and friendly, helpful staff who did not waiver in fulfilling a special request which was well outside their normal duties.
We hope to return to Prague later this year and this hotel will be our first choice when looking for accommodation. We can think of no reason why we should look elsewhere.
Enjoy your stay - I can't imagine why you wouldn't!
The 'BEST' best western
I must say that I have a difference of opinion to some of the other users.We have just stayed at this hotel as a party of 12 for a 30th birthday celebration and found the staff most helpful and friendly, they did everything and extra that was asked of them, including the set up of tables after breakfast which is a busy time where we had champagne for breakfast as a surprise. As for the breakfast the choice was overwhelming and in abundance.The rooms although basic, (if you requested tea and coffee in your room you could collect it from reception or have it delivered to your room for 100Kc) were very clean and tidy with no musty smells or noise from other guests.The location is excellent as well, and I agree that the mini bar is outstanding value. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay made better by the warm and friendly staff, we would not hesitate in returning.
Good location, nice people
I stayed at Meteor Plaza for 3 days and I was surprised with so helpful staff there. I had a bad accident with my teeth and I need find some good doctor. Receptionist managed everything in very short time. Location of hotel is excellent, especially for those, who came to Prague to visit all sightseeing - and also is wonderful for shopping :-).
I will definitely come back to this hotel.
Stayed at this hotel with my wife during the month of July 04. We encountered the hotel very clean, reasonably well appointed, with abundant breakfast. Our room was well sized, its furnishings were modern and well kept. Staff behaviour was very attentive and friendly. There is a lovely lobby bar next to the reception area. I am definitely recommending it.
SLIGHTLY ABOVE AVERAGE
I just returned from prague and stayed in room 104 at the meteor plaza. The past two reviews are not accurate. Having traveled all over the world, the meteor plaza is just slightly above average. The good: 1.) Excellent location 2.) Clean rooms and good room service. 3.) Good breakfast. The Bad:1.) No air conditioning in some rooms including room 104. 2.) Small shower stall. Overall I encountered no musty smellls or dirty rooms. Believe me I have stayed at worse. The metor plaza is not the best, but by far it is not the worst. I would stay here again.
Small, dirty rooms -- stay at your own peril
This hotel was awful. My friend and I stayed there on the recommendation of our travel agent. The room was dirty (not sure that it had ever dusted), and so tiny that lying in our twin beds, which were pressed up against the walls, we could touch each others and there was only room for the beds in the room. It may be centerally located but that is the only good thing that I can say about this place.
Just, 26th March 2004, returned from the Meteor Plaza, party of four middle aged and senior, one with slight mobility problems, and found the Hotel to be of a pretty good standard.One or two minor points: -Front desk staff are reasonably good and helpful despite a cold appearance, services offered are reasonable and the staff are getting to grips with the service industry.The Hotel prices are also reasonable, the cellar bar appears to be a fairly quiet for a nightcap, closes at midnight, however you can raid the mini bar with out having to consider a second mortgage.Breakfast is a little bit of a disorganized affair, it seems to take the staff by surprise when the guests all turn up at breakfast time. During busy periods, the crockery seems to run out, and the replenishment of the breakfast items appears to go a little awry. The toast making facilities leave plenty of scope for improvement, overall however it becomes part of the routine, and you soon get into their swing of things.Residents are entitled to a 10% discount in the hotel bars and restaurants, but there seems a reluctance to deduct it with out having to insist, even when you have charged to the room.The location for our trip was excellent, 5 minutes from the Powder Tower \ Municipal Buildings, 15 minutes Wenceslas Square \ Old Town Square, 25 minutes Opera House, 30 minutes from the Jewish Quarter, all times were on foot with someone with limited mobility, the Hotel really is within easy reach of the majority of attractions.There are Restaurants around also within easy reach ranging from the intimate to the stylish, all are good value, and affordable. We found we could confidently dine with out even having to think of looking the prices on the menu.All in all I have no qualms about recommending this place for a stay, it is on a quieter side of central, but close enough to easily reach the interests. Major ?Must Do? interests are to the left as you exit the Hotel, but there is an equally interesting world to the right when you exit, its worth a nosey few moments just to look and explore.The country will adopt the Euro soon, and I think that the prices may well rise, but it will still probably be very reasonable by comparison to the UK.
Huge room, great location
Did not know what to expect from this hotel but we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was huge (compared to other so-called three-stars hotels we've stayed in) and contained a large bed, seperate bathroom suite and piano! Breakfast was nothing to write home about but, as a light snack to start the day, it was fine. Spa suite was impressive and was available for private hire for guests (not sure how private it was though). Great location, with all attractions nearby - for price, location and facilities this hotel was perfect.

We slept in until 9am. Janet is sleeping later than she has ever in her life, until 8am or later. We had breakfast and had a lazy morning. Janet and Lachlan went out for a walk, and came ack to the apartment at 12.45. We all walked to the Old Town Square to watch the astronomical clock. The crowds are enormous. There are over 10 million visitors to Prague every year. The clock is one of the most watched tourist attractions in Europe. The clock was built in 1490, it represents, ...

After seeing the Astronomical Clock and taking some pictures, we felt like we had seen enough of Old Town Square. We walked some more and stopped to get some food and drink at a café, where we sat outside, relaxed, and rested our tired legs and feet. After that, we found the nearest metro station and went back to our apartment in Vinohrady, satisfied with our day of sightseeing in Prague.

Of course, I was not the only one doing that. As I had been warned, I found myself among tourists so numerous that, in comparison, a day in Disneyland could be considered solitude. There appeared to be two types of tourists. The first are those that move in packs and swarms, all following the short woman in front holding her furled umbrella aloft. Most of these crowds spoke ...
