By the end of the course I had decided to stick around town largely in part to my two new flatmates - Page and Shawna - both of whom agreed to split expenses with me. We're all 'Merican, and we're all kinda in the same boat, so having each other around is kind of a blessing. At ...

After dinner we moved on to another bar and had a couple of drinks and a chat (less than $2 AUD for a nice beer). I suggested we should try a traditional Czech liqueur called Slivovica. Eventually everyone gave in and we all tried it, I thought it was quite tasty however the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Casa Marcello Prague
I booked this hotel for 4 night in June for my elderly parents after much searching & after reading the reports on this website. I wanted a reasonably central hotel as my parents are in their late 70's & my mother is not as fit as she once was.From the reviews I had read the staff also seemed caring & helpful which I thought was reassuring bearing in mind my parents age & the fact that they are not "seasoned travellers".
Stayed here for 3 nights, 27 Feb 2005. As other reviewers have commented, it is hard to find but that is part of the beauty of this hotel because when you turn that corner, exhausted after a busy day shopping, sightseeing, drinking and eating, the hotel is like an oasis.
We stayed for two nights in December, and it was truly bliss! We had a gigantic room (I assume we were upgraded to a suite?), lovely big bed, beautiful views - it was an absolutely charming room. You couldn't ask for a better location, either. We had wonderful meals wherever we went in Prague. And cheap. I cannot reccomend this place enough.
We stayed a week in October 2004 and the first night got an awful room - very small with a toilet, no basin, in a cupboard off the room and a tiny shower+basin off the room through another door. The bed was rockhard and it was noisy from the street. They changed us next morning to a better room but not a suite as in the other reviews. Although the sheets and towels were changed several times, the room and bathroom were not cleaned during the whole week! Breakfast was OK but there was often a queue for a table and the staff were not very efficient at topping things up. Other guests complained also. The whole place seemed a bit neglected but could be beautiful with good management as the location is fantastic and we had a great week otherwise. I recommend a trip to the National Theatre for the opera or ballet - the best seats in the centre first circle are a fraction of the prices at home and it is wonderful. Watch the taxi fares - it shouldn't cost more than about 500 euros to/from the airport.
Stayed here for a long weekend for my boyfriend (now husband)'s birthday in August 2003. We had a suite which was wonderful. The hotel is gorgeous - quiet and romantic. You can have free and exclusive use of the sauna downstairs - just let them know and they will give you the key - nice on an overcast showery day. Breakfast was lovely served out in a little courtyard. Fabulous places to eat and drink locally at really low prices - one of the best meals we have EVER had (and we have travelled a lot) was in a small restaurant nearby - excellent fillet steak with spinach and a bottle of wine for about £3 each!! All in all a wonderfully romantic place to stay, in one of Europe's most romantic cities. Staff were absolutely brilliant too, and helped me book opera tickets in advance of our visit. It IS easy to get lost (see other visitors' comments) but just pick up one of the many leaflets that are handed out in the streets advertising free music events - they usually have a map on the back and you can orientate yourself once you spot the jewish quarter, where the hotel is. Highly recommended.
Great location and value
We stayed at the Casa Marcello in August, 2004 and found the accommodations and location well above average. The hotel is located a short distance from the main square and yet is very quiet, with the exception of dog walkers on the cobblestone streets in the morning, hardly a major problem.
Restaurants in the area are well above average and I would recommend not going more than three blocks and anyone would find well priced and delicious Czech food with enough variety to satisfy any taste.
We were upgraded into a suite and heard that the standard rooms were well appointed and just a little smaller.
Breakfasts were great and kept us from more food till mid afternoon.
Excellent location and good service
Stayed for 4 nights over the weekend. Ideal for the old town square (3-4 minutes). Yes there's still some work going on, but very quiet location.
All the staff were freindly and helpful, breakfast can be a little slow, but they always provided stuff we asked for. We got a special offer of 120 euro per night for a double room which was basic, but an unbeatable deal for a city centre B&B. Would have no hesitation in recommending.
We visited Prague for Valentines Day in 2004.
The location of the hotel is perfect its 5mins from the old town square and 10 mins max from all other sights and theatres. The outside roads of the hotel are still as described by the previous reviewer but dont let this put you off. Its been on going for years according to the taxi man. We were promised a nice room for my wife's birthday and they didnt disappoint, the room was fantastic with a seperate lounge, bathroom & bedroom it was huge.
You won't go wrong here.
Stayed here for my girlfrinds birthday end of Oct. I requested the best double and flowers in the room, which I got, with no fuss. Everyone from the reception desk to the porters were friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself was charming and cosy. The only reason I didn't give full marks was due to the roadworks outside, which are more like open drains and work on St Agnes monastery. This does not interfere in any way once inside the hotel. The hotel is in a good location just a couple of minutes walk from Old Town Square and is well worth paying a little bit more for. Reccomended.
