Panorama Hotel Prague
Travel Blogs from Prague
We have spent two very nice days in Prague. The first day was composed of a lot of walking, touring the historical and beautiful sites and architecture. First we had breakfast, which was free at our hotel (score!), and headed to the Prague Castle. The Prague Castle is the largest castle in the world. Inside the walls of the castle, there is the …
Well, started off as an innocent trip to Prague to see sights. It was Easter season and Prague goes all out. Markets and traditional foods similar to Christmas markets but different holiday/season. While wandering the Castle district, saw major construction for an event and thought-wow the Czechs really take Easter serious. Then noticed a huge …
We traveled to Prague for five days in July 2008. We went to Prague immediately after our ten-day trip to Turkey. What can I say about about Prague that hasn't already been said?!? It is absolutely stunning. It is such a beautiful city; in our opinions and based on our travels, it may only be second to Paris as far as its beauty. We stayed at the …
... in the city. It was a cool experience to go down there and see the amount of preparation the Czechs had put in, in case of nuclear attack during the Cold War. A lot of gear like suits and gas masks were on show in there too and our guide told lots of stories and info about that time and all the gear on display. A few people (Dylan included) got dressed up at the end for photos. We went back to the hotel to get ready ...
... happy time together, I am just distraught it is over. I'm worried that when I get to Alice I will be sad. I never wanted my time with her to end. I'm the luckiest person alive to have my mum in my life. She is an angel and she has always looked after me, for every second of my life. I plucked up the courage to go for a walk for about an hour then went back to the hotel and had a bath, ordered room service (two courses) and watched some tv. Went to sleep quite ...

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.
