Historical Traveler Reviews Century Old Town - MGallery Collection Prague
Really Enjoyed this hotel
Had a really enjoyable stay in the Mercure Prague just before St patricks Day. Found the staff very helpful, getting us train timetables etc. Rooms were excellent, very comfortable and breakfast was a hot and cold buffet where you could have as much as you wanted before heading off on a long day's sightseeing. Walked to every part of Prague from the hotel, we never had to get a tram or taxi. It's in a very good location, about five minutes walk from the old town center. Would recommend it to anyone, business or leisure.
Loved the Mercure
We spent four unforgettable nights in November '04 at the Mercure. It's a lovely hotel with a courteous staff in an excellent location. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay there.
3 day break over Christmas 2004
It is always difficult when you are looking at hotels on-line and whenever possible I try to get the real experiences of people who have stayed there. This was a good choice and I would recommend it to friends.
We picked the hotel because of its links to Kafka (2 teenage children interested in philosophy etc) and we were not disappointed. The rooms were not large but they were very typical of a city hotel and they were clean, well appointed and confortable. As a reviewer has said don't be tempted by the mini bar the prices are high, my kids helped themselves to a small tub of pringles (tub was out of date!) which we replaced from the food store a couple of doors away at about a quarter of the cost.
The staff were very friendly and the reception were very helpful in booking us tables and excursions. Importantly they have hotel cars and they will pick you up from the airport (I have always wanted to be met by someone in arrivals with a my name board!) They will put the cost of this onto your hotel bill which is helpful. The bar is great for a mulled wine or cup of chocolate after a day out. Breakfast was better than expected with a hot English option.
The hotel is in a great location for walking into the old town and all the sights, we did not use the trams or buses. We were there for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year, would do it again.
Stayed at the hotel on a 3 day break and had a very pleasant stay. Staff were curteous and friendly. The hotel building very impressive and had an ambience of sophistication about it, apparently kafka used to work in the building.
Most attractions are close by. Wenceles Square is about 10 mins walk with lots of christmas market stalls en route for your perusal. Charles bridge is about a 20 minute brisk walk through the cobbled streets. Might be worth sampling some of the hot wine sold at some stalls to warm your cockles.
Prior to the trip, I was a bit worried about other reviews on this site saying the rooms were a bit small, but ours had ample space, enough to swing a large dog!
The air conditioning kept the room snug during what seemed like arctic temperatures outside, but I would have liked to have the option of being able to open the locked window to let in some fresh air if needed.
The bed was very comfy too, and the linen all clean and fresh changed daily.
I thought the minibar drinks and food in the room were very expensive for Prague, which is renowed for its cheap food and beer. Drinks were around £2-£3.50p A bag of peanuts was the biggest ripoff costing 200k around 4.20p pounds in uk money.They were not even cashew nuts! There's a cheap convenience store next door though, to stock up your own supply of nibbles and beverages.
The breakfast was very good, with fresh omeletes on the morning menu cooked as ordered by a chef while-u-wait. Lots too suit various palletes. Hot food like bacon, scrambled eggs, beans sausage and hash browns was available and ham cheese, rolls, fruit and cereal.
At the back of the hotel a huge new hotel is about to be built. The stay could have been a noisy one, the foundations are being laid, but intermittent drilling didn't start till 9:00am and the workers left by about 5:00pm. The noise didn't seem to loud behind the double glazing. But you may need to consider what it may be like when the structural building work begins.
Found Prague beer cheap in all the restaurants, but quick note about the casinos I visited. After using any fruit machines and automated roulette wheels you have to get a member of staff to withdraw any winnings. Very annoying when you want to move onto a different machine to spend any profit elsewhere.
Great room and convenient location. The only disappointment was that the room was rather small. However, the room was nicely appointed, everything seemed brand new, and the room was spotlessly clean. The hotel staff was helpful though a bit formal. This is a pleasant place to stay.
Nice time, nice place
It has new equipment, not luxurious room but very confortable.
Nice breakfast and a superb location, just 5 min walking from Staro mesto(the old square) and all major attractions. Fantastic shower, nice employees, and a XiX superb fachade. Also you have a 24h bar just in front the door and a late opening shop almost next door.
Although it´s not a very charm hotel, it's a very good one and a good choice for a weekend in Prague. We had a wonderful time in a enchanting city under the snow. I would repeat!
Fantastic city, great hotel
We went to Prague last December and had a fantastic time. The hotel Mercure has a fantastic location, very central, do not let the street outside put you off (still very eastern block in appearance). Our room was small but served us well, my only complaint which is petty is after a long day sightseeing we prefer a bath, the showers saying that are very pucker. The lobby is very very elegant and all in all we would definetly stay here again. Prague is absolutely gorgeous, go and book a meal in the restaurant called the four angels, ask your rep for directions. Definetly take very comfy walking shoes as this is a city worth seeing. We went on a walking tour of the city and enjoyed, we did'nt enjoy as much the bus tour (maybe the hangover had something to do with that). Very expensive to drink around the square but it was worth it to people watch. There is so much to see and do here we went for 3 days and maybe one more day would of been enough. We will go back one day and we would also stay at the Mercure.
Beautiful Hotel & Very Central
We stayed at the Mercure in March 2004, the hotel is a beautiful old building nicely refurbished. The hotel is in a GREAT location, once you get your bearings.
Our room was small, stylish & a little hot, but a staff member went to great lengths to open our window for us. The bathroom was spotless & the toiletries were gorgeous. The room was at the front so the trams were a bit noisy. Breakfast was great, big selection of hot & cold food.
Best of all the Mercure is practically next-door to The Imperial Café, with its free doughnuts its one of Prague's best!
Booking hotels online is always a bit of a lottery but we were delighted with our choice when we arrived at the Mercure. The hotel is ideally located in a quiet street only a 2 minute walk from the main tourist area. The inside is very grand and impressive. The staff were very friendly and efficient at all times. Our room was a good size and was always spotless. Breakfast was an excellent hot buffet with a wide selection of choices to suit all tastes. I have already recommended this hotel to friends who intend to visit Prague. Book it - you won't be disappointed!!!
I had the pleasure to stay at the Mercure during March 2004 and loved it. The room we had was small but facing a courtyard at the rear. The shower in the bathroom was amazing. It was a very old building, that had been sympathetically renovated. Also, there's a room on the second floor where apparently Franz Kafka used to work when the building was an insurance company. Great location - never felt threatened walking home at night. And a great little shop next door for midnight munchies/beer!

... a circle of 365 names. Each day in Czech has a different name, and it's common to celebrate your 'name day'. Unfortunately I didn't find out what day Tom was! All this was pretty impressive, so why is it considered so disappointing? It's because tourists come to see the "show". Every hour, the four puppets on the side of the clock move. As it was built in the 14th century, the movement is limited to a shaking of the head. Not so impressive now, but impressive when you ...

The view was beautiful and we ate in tents that were heated.

Aiming for a more laid-back day after our night out, we left the hotel around 11 destined for Park Güell, guarding our belongings as we took the metro. This park offers some Of Gaudi's work, and offers sensational views overlooking the city and Mediterranean. We chilled in there for a few, visited the tourist boutiques and headed to Las Ramblas, the main shopping street, for lunch and some shopping. After ...

After the tour, on our own, we went to the Jewish Center and visited the synagogue. It was a highly recommended attraction, but left Mom and I underwhelmed and feeling a bit ripped off. The building was not that spectacular on the inside and was very small. Not worth the price of admission. The best part of the Jewish Quarter was the peek ...
