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.

... a pub called the Golden Scissors. Traditional Czech food (as well as burgers and salads for the less adventurous). I opted for the roast pork, sauerkraut, gilled vegies and dumplings, Connor tried the pork schnitzel. Was a pretty nice meal, and, when we finished, there was a large fireworks display from the Charles Bridge, so we got a nice view from where we were sitting. A great way to finish off our first day in Prague.
We had a bit of slow start this morning; catching up on sleep, emails and washing.
When we finally headed out the door it was almost 11am and we started by heading down Vaclavske Namesti. There are lots of little stalls in the square and we soon spotted trdelnik - a sweet unleavened pastry. Maddy and I shared one. It was really good.
We then continued on and past the Municipal Hall. They had classical music concerts on there ...
... with every type of European view you want to see. The old Charles Bridge, the Prague Castle, the Saturday morning farmers market selling delicious authentic Czech food, and off course good cheap beer. It was rainy and cloudy for our first few days here, but even with that weather Prague has not failed to impress. The old town square at night is lit up and full of people, with street performers playing their accordions ...
... the people there and there was still lots of evidence of 'Communistic Chic' in the building styles,
An arduous climb in the burning sun brought us to the foot of a genuine ancient castle, Tocnik. We weren't the only ones to appreciate its romantic, historic look there was a film crew there too filming a joint production with the BBC of the Three ...
... to drop our bags then headed up to mountain to visit the massive Castle, wherebour local guide met us and told us lots of neat information about the city of Prague. Mercifully the cit escaped most of the war so the centuries old buildings remain intact and stunning to behold. The church at the castle took almost a century to build and is reflective of three different achitecture styles. We strolled down the ...
