Panorama Hotel Prague
Travel Blogs from Prague
It seemed every tourist in the world had come to Prague. I had heard so many wonderful things about Prague from other people and was really excited to see it for myself. Our hotel was quite far out of the centre but right at the entrance to a metro so it was easy to find our way to where the action was. Our first day we spent exploring the old town …
... I was trapped. I manoeuvred across to the opposite chair, knocking the salt and pepper onto the floor and into the water, then jumped from shallow spot to shallow spot until I made it inside - only slightly drenched. We went downstairs into the restaurant proper, but the waiters mistook us for new customers and explained "finished, no more food". Someone else asked why not and they explained that their kitchen had flooded. We took a seat to wait on the rain, and ...
... watched for a while. We were informed by a barman in Copenhagen about a restaurant Prague. So walked for miles to get there and it was 8pm. It was an I the resting walk because we walked through a mall area with shops and the buildings weren't so old. The restaurant was fully booked out so the owner told us to try place around the corner. The place around the corner was a Brew house. They sold eight different styles of ...
... continuing to make us dinner. Afterwards Miguel came down stairs and said hello which was funny as she said her 'little 15 year old brother' his actually 6"+ and easily weights more than me, thats not in a fat way either. Miguel used to train for swimming 7 times a week so his quite muscly and has massive shoulders but he changed to American Football as he wasn't enjoying swimming all that much. After meeting the family we put our bags down and went into the kitchen and began ...
... egg and wine bound Charles Bridge for the first time. With several monuments and sculptures lining the bridge, I’m sure it would have been a great sight at dawn…although we weren’t up quite that early today. With a little more sunshine comes a lot more people, and today was all the proof we needed. Getting one of our only real "summer days" today, the sky was clear and the bridge was packed with tourists and street vendors alike. Musical acts of all varieties have ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Panorama Hotel Prague
I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend in April 2005. My Mum is originally Czech and me and my parents, sister and boyfriend were travelling over for a long weekend away because we arranged a suprise party for my Nan. For a bit of privacy me and my boyfriend chose to opt out of staying at relatives and stayed at this 4 star Corinithia Panorama instead.
Great location out of city centre
Stayed at the Corinthia for 3 nights in October 2005. The hotel is a good 4 star and is in a great location considering it isn't in the city centre itself. Just 120 metres away from the efficient Metro and 4 stops later you are right in the centre of Prague. The room was a good size and reasonably well decorated. Got a great deal including daily breakfast (good choice and on until 11am which is ideal after a late night!). Definitely recommend the Corinthia and excellent value for money.
Location - only 4 stops or 15 minutes on the underground from the hotel to the very centre of Prague city. Far enough away from the crowds but close enough to be able to sightsee during the day and then hop on the underground to go back to the hotel to change for dinner and then back into the city centre again! The underground station is only a 2 minute walk from the hotel and an all day travel pass cost 80 czk (about £1.86) and let you travel unlimited for 24 hours on the underground/bus/tram/Petrin Hill funicular railway. The underground ran until midnight daily and was very clean, modern and safe - if the main ticket office is closed (Sunday), the tabac shop in the station sells underground passes.
The Corinthia Panorama hotel is somewhat bleak-looking on the outside, but extremely well-presented on the inside. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly, especially as we were unable to fly home on the last day (due to the airport being closed with snow) and they happily booked us back in and looked after us during our unintended stay (even giving us an upgrade for free).
We ended up in the Corinthia Panorama after our booking at the Corinthia Towers could not be accommodated due to "technical problems" (is this code for overbooking???). We were promised upgrades to Executive rooms if we agreed to move to the Panorama, although on arrival, this took a bit of negotiation at the front desk to actually obtain.
just returned from prague stayed here for 5 nights hotel was great staff very friendly. worth paying the little extra for an executive room fruit in room and bathrobes provided also free entry to pool and gym lots of toiletries provided. food was lovely we went for sunday brunch in this hotel eat & drink as much as you want between 11 & 3 for about 12 pounds. we would certainly go back great city.
I have just returned from a weekend with my girlfriend at this hotel,its situated in a suburb 4 underground stops from the city centre (czk15 return; 0.50) which is about a 10 min trip (taxi czk500). The room was completely satisfactory and had the largest bed i have ever slept in at a chain hotel! The staff were all friendly and all were very competent english speakers but they do appreciate any effort on guests behalf at attempting the local lingo. Prague is a beautiful city and was all the more inhanced by the 8cms of snow we had on our visit! All in all a great trip.
Stayed here with about 50 Colleagues for a conference. Having read the other reviews, was not looking forward to this. However, either things have changed dramatically or they were just unfortunate. The location is not that good - it is about a 10 minute taxi ride to the centre (costs vary between CK250 - 450), but the rooms are fine and the staff friendly. The only criticisms I can make are that the I had to wait 15 minutes for a lift that I could get in the morning I checked out and there is only one PC with Internet access. Otherwise it was perfectly pleasant. The Top Deck Leisure facility was very good although there is a CK300 charge to use it. I'm not sure why you would stay here as a tourist, but if you can get a good rate you will not be disappointed with the quality of the hotel.
Don't stay here
A truly awful hotel in a horrible location. The rooms are very basic, no soap/shower gel, no iron or ironing facilities, poor views and unhelpful staff.
Allegedly a Four Star - I wouldn't give it even one star.
The hotel is located in a run down suburb of Prague, about a 10 min metro ride to the centre. The check in staff were not very welcoming and understaffed. The lobby is pleasant however very smokey. I had specifically booked a non-smoking room but on checking in was informed that the hotel only had 4 n-s rooms on each floor and there was not one for me. The room was basic, the view was poor and the bed very uncomfortable. There was no bath/shower gel/soap in the bathroom. I will definitely return to Prague as it is a beautiful city, however, I will never return to the Corinthia Panorama.
