Location, Location. Location
Have just returned from a long weekend, staying at the Central Hotel, Prague. As stated by others, this hotel is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the Old Town Square. We found the rooms to be very clean, comfortable and surprisingly quiet at night. There was a variety of options for breakfast, including a hot plate with scrambled eggs, continental sausages and bacon. Breakfast was from 07:30 to 10:30am at the weekend - an important factor after a night on cheap Czech beer (!).
Overall, highly recommended.....and yes, the lift is dodgy.
I stayed at the hotel in December 2003. The place is clean and tidy, helpful staff and nice atmosphere, a three star hotel but with that location you have to give it four stars. The price was really good for the location and I had no complaints whatsoever. I was travelling alone and paid for a single room but was given a spacious twin room with nice bathroom. As long as you're not wanting luxury (Paritz or Grand Bohemia style) then this hotel is excellent, I have reccomended it to friends and would love to return again.
We had a 3 nite break in Feb, the hotel is a few minutes away from the old town square... Very clean Hotel rooms are on the basic side but clean towels and room cleaned every day.
The breakfast for European standards was very good plenty of it, get down on the early side to enjoy the hot food as it gets cool if you leave it late.
The hotel reception not over friendly, but very efficiant, we needed to order a taxi, and they were very helpful. We would use this hotel when we visit Prague again, a good standard 3 star.
Very Good Hotel
I have just returned from Prague in Feb 2005 and we stayed in the Central Hotel. I found the hotel very good value for money, its location is excellent within walking distance to all the sites. The rooms are clean and bright. There was no iron or tea/coffee facilites in the room. The breakfast was good and has a range of food. The lift in the reception is an experience, its not good if you are scared of small spaces! Overall a great hotel with friendly service.
Just returned from Prague after a 2 night break, hotel was cheap, but very clean, staff were friendly, rooms were spotless. Breakfast was of a continental style, but there was plenty of choice, including cerials, bread rolls cold ham, yoghurt fresh fruit salad, and cakes. The hotel is localted in a brilliant spot, 2 mins walk to the old town square and walking distance to charles bridge. The people in prage are friendly, if we go to prague again, we will be using the central hotel. Well done!!!!
Fabulous Central Hotel
Just returned from the Central Hotel from 4 days in beautiful Prague.
The hotel could not be in a better location - literally 5 minutes walk from the Old Town Square, the main shopping, 10 minutes to Charles Bridge etc etc - exactly where you want to be and at a Bed & (fantastic choice for) Breakfast price you are very happy to pay. Very pleasant staff (albeit a little straightfaced!!)
50 yards from Red Hot & Blues tex-mex food/Jazz & Blues restaurant - sat in the courtyard under patio heaters when it's about -2 deg C drinking cheap local beer (65p/pint) and eating far more absolutely delicious food than we should!!
Am booking my parents in here for their holiday next year and it will take somewhere incredibly special to tempt us to stay elsewhere on our next visit.
I stayed second week of november 2004 as a sixth wedding anniversary treat. I have no complaints whatsoever except for the price at the bar. Too expensive compared to all the rest: rooms, breakfast, cab, location etc...
The breakfast was in one word beautifull. A compilation of full english, american, continental, best buns, bread, cheese, best meat, best fruit, cakes, koffie and the even warm or cold milk.
I'd like to go back.
Lovely little hotel
just returned in Nov2004 after a 2 night stay at this hotel, there were six of us and we all had a lovely room, very spacious, clean lovely bathroom did not expect hairdryer and all toiletries as it is a basic hotel but was very impressed. Breakfast supposed to be continental but was a huge choice of hot and cold dishes
Location absolutely perfect right near old town square within walking distance of Wencelas square, jewish quarter, castle charles bridge etc
Had a memorable weekend in Prague and for the price of £21.50 per person per night thjought it was exceptional value, will reccommend to all who are thinking of visiting Prague.

... most beers per capita. They are also most doubtful of the EU (along with The British), and the Czech Republic is the most agnostic country in the world. They have a famous track record in the classical music and film industries. Drugs have all been decriminalized here, and it's legal to walk around drinking openly. Pretty crazy to think about coming from strict ol Boston. After the tour finished, the group dispersed and I got a cappuccino. Next I continued ...
... to more around especially down narrow streets against the tide of the multitude. After lunch we made our way across Charles Bridge where many people were touching the religious statues adorning each side of the bridge - clearly there were well known rituals here as parts of the statues were well worn from thousands of hands. We then made our way up to Prague Castle through a maze of cobblestoned streets ...
... absintherie before going back to my hostel, or so was the plan! But, instead of going home, I ended up meeting three guys from Czech who were celebrating a birthday. They were so excited to meet a Canadian and I had a really good time just chatting with them. Eventually, they had decided to move on to the next bar and invited me to join...and well, how could I resist! (Stupidest decision ever! Hahah). We went to a bar to go dance and I completely lost track of time - before I knew ...
... the old town square. There I approached an African man and asked him if he was interested in the bible. He told me that when he moved here he had to leave his bible at home and he was looking for another one but could not find one in Prague. I told him that I could bring him one so we traded contact info and made arraignments to meet the next day. The congregation does not have any new versions but I was able to find a brand new deluxe copy ...
8 September Had a nice relaxing morning in Dresden as we weren't being picked up until 11.30am. Unfortunately, being a Sunday, most of the shops were closed so we just had to muck around the hostel until the bus arrived. After another short journey (enjoying this leg at the moment) we arrived in the beautiful, fast-moving, architectural melting pot that is Prague. We were quite excited for this stop, as so many of the guides had mentioned it as one of their favourite places! ...
