Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Belvedere Prague
went to Prague Nov 2003 stayed at the Belvedere Hotel.Very clean small rooms but very comfortable. Close to centre of Prague about 15minutes walk. Beautiful city very cheap good rates through easyjet. A little tip, Go down stairs in any pub and it is really cheap same level cheap climb stairs a little more expensive. Chinese food very good value for money.
Went to the Belvedere on my stag do in March. The hotel rooms were of a good size, very clean and most of all warm as it was minus something outside. The hotel was close to most tourist areas and the trams were nearby if you wanted to travel further afield. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. I can definitely recommend this hotel if you decide to visit Prague.
Nice Basic hotel
We stayed here during June 2004, for 4 nights. we found the rooms basic, but clean, with nylon bed spreads, but the bath room was impresively very modern. We were on the 5th floor with great views down the street of the Prumyslovy Palace ( The Music Gardens) Clock tower. The lift was tiny just enough room for two people & a suit case, but very opulent in inside even so. & the stairs were very wide & accesible. The dining room reminded me of the Communist era, but the buffet breakfasts were wonderfully filling with the strangest (for a Brit) assortment to choose, from hot savoury soup to cakes, lovely. The staff extremely friendly & obliging. Very easy access to the town by Tram or Underground(Tube/Metro/subway) Tram stops within a minute of the doors and The tube about 5 mins down hill. The punctuallity of both services were outstanding. Bang on time to the second. Very impressed. (& cheap 3 day pass available too).
Was a bit of a walk to Charles Bridge and Old town square etc but trams went from the hotel to the bridge every 10 mins and was only a few stops. Rooms old fashioned but clean, although the bathroom and toilet was tiny - knees touching door!
Helpful and friendly reception staff. Breakfast was fine, hot and cold options although they can be slow replenishing! Cheap bar serving a few bar snacks open til late but nice bar/seating area.
Wouldn't stay there again but only because I would prefer to be a bit closer to the centre.
Clean, nice hotel
Just arrive homed from a one night stay at The Belvedere. Nice hotel, clean rooms, a bit of a wait at check in for them to process it, but it wasn't too bad. A very pleasant sitting area in the lounge/reception with an internet cafe there which was very handy. Room was clean, of a decent size, but bathroom was a bit too small, there was no space to move around in at all. We did have some trouble finding the hotel but once we did, it was great. I'd stay here again.
Belvedere is a winner in Prague
We've just returned from a long weekend break in Prague and stayed at the Belvedere. The location was ideal as we like to walk - it's a 10 minute walk across the river into Republik Square and another 5 minutes to Old Town Square. The staff were courteous, rooms were basic but clean, breakfast was adequate with a range of hot and cold options. The hotel has a cosy lobby bar. Another winner for us was the fact that we could leave our luggage all day for only 20 Kc (less than 50p sterling!). Would recommend!
Clean and decent place to stay
We stayed at the Belevedere Sept 9-15th 2004. Its a clean and safe. The location is good; its about 20 minutes by taxi from airport. Several tram (public transp) lines pass in front of the hotel, that gives direct access to all parts of the city. Other travelers we meet included Brits, Irish, Spainish and Germans too. The online display picture of rooms is less accurate, furniture is old, the TV had only one english station (CNN), others were in Czech language. The beds were comfortable, bathroom/shower eastern european style but good, sufficent closet space for short term travelers. The staff of hotel were courteous and have a good working knowledge of english.
Stay at the Belvedere and save the hassle
I stayed at the Belvedere from Christmas day 2000 to Jan 15, 2001. I specifically stayed on the second floor which is a card-key controlled floor for 'executives'. The rooms were enormous, the bathroom was Huge, completely done in white marble, fluffy duvets (typical european down comforters), emaculately clean in every way. Their prices for dry cleaning however were outrageous; something like $10 USD for a shirt, $20 USD for slacks and so on.I've stayed here before and find it a great value. All of the downtown hotels are way over priced, the intercontinental is too far away from town, and the smaller hotels that are a good value are impossible to find a vacancy because of all of the expatriate retirees living in them. When you get off the plane just tell the cab driver 'Belvedere, prosim" pronounced 'proseem' it should cost about $20 to get you there from the airport. You're being screwed at that price, but since you don't speak czech, live with it.
Just for sleeping
We stayed here for 4 nights in June 2002. The hotel was clean and tidy, but old-fashioned and basic. Staff were very helpful considering we didn't speak a word of the language! Ate breakfast in the hotel, very simple, but it filled us up (both hot and cold options). We found it to be a good cheap option for staying in Prague. Wouldn't recommend the walk to the old town. It was a lot longer than it looked on the map - Use the Metro system... it's cheap and easy!

... Powder Tower, Old Jewish District, Franz Kafka, and the Golem.
During the tour we stopped for a bathroom break and to purchase any of their other tours. Nick and I decided to do the Beer culture tour. The walking tour continued on and Mike walked us around the area some more. We walked over to the Jewish quarter and learned that it was basically saved during the war because Hitler wanted to make it a museum. Then the tour ended.
After the tour ...
... He was from Ireland, living in Prague, and his name was Declan. He brought us around all of the old town, the Jewish quarter and much more - he was so knowledgable and taught us all so much about Czech history! I loved every second of it. Anybody that knows me well enough, knows I love to laugh - well...there was no shortage of laughter on this tour! Haha Declan would make jokes and I'd be the only one laughing (that or my loud laugh just drowned out the rest of them lol) - he ...
... would have been quicker! Almost the entire tram emptied out when we reached the castle. The castle looms over the city and has been the seat of the Czech monarchs since the 9th century and grew over the years to be what it is now - a large walled area, full of courtyards and lanes. We entered the castle grounds across the Stag Moat, over the Powder bridge and into the second courtyard, the entrance was flanked by guards in their uniforms. After passing through a ...
... mushed together and rolled up, and then cooked again so it had a really interesting, spongy texture. The rest of Bradley's meal was roasted duck with apple and red cabbage. He said it was very yummy, and the meat was just falling off the bones. We were both very impressed, especially for the price! (Both less than 200 Krowns = <8 euros!). I had a house white wine and Bradley had some Prague Pilsner beer, one of their specialties. For dessert we shared mica cake - chocolate ...
... had a vibrant outdoors wine bar along one side and in front of it a Lego tower world record attempt. On my walk I went past another concert in a park, though this one not free - I really loved the vibe and feeling of Budapest, it felt so alive. The next morning I went on a free walking tour and I've decided I'm a fan of those - you almost invariably will tip the guide, so it's not quite free but you do decide what you pay according to your perceived value of the tour and ...
