Clarion Hotel Prague Old Town
Travel Blogs from Prague
Once we finally got up I tried to use Google Maps to plot a path into town, but it kept doing strange things like saying "you have arrived" as soon as I hit start. Then it decided I was north west of the city (we're south east), and plotted an entirely useless path into town. At some point it gave me the route to town - from France. I thought it was just my phone so I tried to use Jess', but her Google Maps was doing equally strange things like saying "no route ...

... eat. I was not super impressed with Frankfurt, I think it has been the one city that disappointed me. But I think it was more of a modern, business city. I did a day trip out to Heidelburg a small historical university town that has a beautiful castle overlooking the old town. When I was walking back from the castle through the town I discovered a huge town festival! There was a renaissance part and many many flea markets and different beer gardens with live music. So ...
We got up at 8.30am and got organised to leave. I made lunch for our train trip. We had breakfast and Lachlan apologised for his behaviour the night before. Mira came to collect us from the apartment and take us to the train station. We are on the 10.40 train to Vienna. It is nothing special. We have a compartment that seats six people. There is another couple sharing with us who don't speak English. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Prague Old Town
Stayed here with a package from Gate 1 Travel. Very pleasant hotel. The rooms were clean, modern and spacious, the complimentary breakfast was impressive. It is a healthy walk to most of the attractions in the old city, but that wasn't a problem for us. Would stay there again.
The Clarion Hotel in Prague was a pleasant surprise. It was even better than it looked online. Conveniently located about a 20 minute walk from Charles Bridge, overlooking the Vlatva River, it was spotlessly clean and the staff was pleasant with decent English. Their driver was waiting for us at the airport (750 crowns - about $30 - for airport ride). Room was large and very comfortable. Bring your own facecloths - none are provided - but I hear that's true of most of Europe. First class restaurant should have been busier, but it was not in the immediate downtown area, so not a lot of walk-by traffic. Breakfast buffet (included w/room) was very good. Had a little trouble with the wireless internet the last day, but they let us use the computer in the lobby. Only a 5 minute walk to the subway. Public transit in Prague is phenomenal - three day pass unlimited subway/bus/tram was about $8.00. Would definitely stay there again.
Just arrived from Prague and staid at Clarion.
Prague is a wonderful city, i loved it !!!!!
The Hotel was good, with not very big, but modern and clean rooms.
The Hotel is not in the central area of the old town, but you can get there by walking about 10-15 minutes.
Breakfast had all the essencials, altough not stunning.
Donīt forget to give a tip to the guy that carryes the luggage, even if he does it for only five meters, or he can be very rude, as it happened to me.
The hotel is located to the north east of the old town square about 10 min walk.
Comfortable but small rooms
Prague: September 27, 2005 Comfortable but small room
Clarion, Hrrrradebni 9, is located within walking distance to most attactions such as Main Square, Charles Bridge, etc. Clean room but very samll. Breakfast is good but not outstanding. Nice lounge in lobby. Did not eat meals at hotel other than breakfast so don't know how good the food is at the resturant. We would stay again.
Just got back from Prague and stayed at the Clarion on the recommendations of this website. The Hotel was excellent, could not fault the rooms and the staff. The only problem we had is that we booked a taxi to pick us from the Airport, via the hotel, and we got charged CK200 more than quoted on the phone - CK1000 in total. We were told by the Hotel that it is CK800 from the Hotel to the Airport but CK1000 from the airport to the Hotel. So if you are booking via the Hotel, make sure they inform you about this extra CK200 charge. TBH I think we were over-charged quite a lot and would, in future, just pick-up a taxi at the airport and agree a price beforehand.
Quick review...clean and modern rooms, air conditioning, hot shower. Hotel is not fancy by any Western standars, but right up there for Eastern Europe. I did not notice anything wrong with my room. I only slept there, meaning...Prague is such a wonderful place to visit that if you are wasting time in your room shame on you!
I have just returned from a 3 day / 2 night break in Prague, staying at the Clarion Hotel. I was let down by another on-line booking agent, and was struggling to find accomodation in the centre of Prague.
