Historical Traveler Reviews Corinthia Hotel Prague
Great hotel, perfect location right next to metro station and only 2 stops from the sights of Prague.
Hotel clean, food great, staff very helpfull and friendly.
Rooms were good size and good standard.
Would recommend to anyone to stay there. I would go back again.
A Huge Dissapointment
There may be parts of this hotel that are 5 star but we didn't find them.
The rooms were absolutely bog standard. We got upgraded to the excecutive floor and there was nothing special here. The decor was dated, comfort was nonexistent and no 5 stars for our on the wall blow dryer. If we wanted to consider spending time in the room to relax and take a break the only thing we could have had without charge was the water. The breakfast was nothing special and busy this lead to a lack of service, food running out and unclean tables. The view from this resturant was concrete when you could see out of the ripped tinted plastic on the windows. We decided to experience the delights of Prague for our other meals.
Prague is a very special city but this is not a special hotel to compliment such a city.
Well worth the extra journey
My wife and I stayed at the Corinthia Towers Hotel in February last year. We only happened to come across the hotel by accident - most of the major web sites didn't seem to have the hotel available, so we booked direct. It looked a bit complicated to get to the hotel by public transport, but some careful planning before hand made the task simple.....and the hotel is right next door to a Metro station - 20metres! The hotel is probably more like a 4*, than 5*, but it is very clean and we found the staff to be helpful enough. Rooms were clean, although we paid a little extra to stay on the executive floor, which also gave you access to the lounce for free drinks and snacks - it was probably worth the extra. The pool on the top floor is really nice and offers great views. Not much locally, but there are places of interest within walking distance. Either way the metro takes you into the town centre within 5-10 minutes. The standard of hotels in Prague is not brilliant and costs are unusually high. The Corinthia Towers offers a really good compromise of cost and standard of accommodation - the extra 10 minutes on the Metro to get there is well worth it!
I stayed at this hotel from friday 26th aug to monday 29th(yesterday) and loved it.
On arrival i was upgraded to an executive room on the 23rd floor(room 2328)
and my room was great, not quite a 5star room but close enough and for what you want a room for, it was great for me.
The hotel was lovely and clean, staff were brilliant and so helpful, the breakfast was everything you could want from fruit of the month (pear) to loaves of fresh bread for you to carve yourself a nice chunk to the majority of what you require of a breakfast buffet and staff were always on hand to fill you coffee cup.
The beer and bowling bar was my favourite due to the staff in there being absolutely brilliant in everything they did, nothing was too much for them.
all in all, a wonderful hotel, full of people from many countries that i would not hesitate to visit again and after seeing prague on this my first visit, i will be back.
Yes it is more 4 star than 5 star, however, I feel some of the other reviews have been a bit unkind. Our room on the 8th floor was very clean although fittings a bit dated. We had a view over the City which you should probably ask for as it is much nicer. Breakfast is served between 6.30 and 11 so you are not rushed and there is a good selection with omlettes etc cooked to order so nice and fresh. The big plus however is its location literally next to the Metro and 2 stops from Wencelas Square (6mins). Staff are very pleasant and helpful and you can safely leave your luggage if you are on a late flight. I would certainly stay here again if the price was right.
Pleased we chose the Corinthia Towers
We booked two rooms at the Corinthia Towers between 14th - 18th February 2005 for three adults and two children. We chose the hotel because it was 5 star and next to a metro station. I e-mailed the hotel and they arranged transfer by minibus from airport to hotel which was efficient and convenient.
We arrived late (10.20 pm ) and went straight to the bowling area for something to eat. The food was excellent, as was the service. Staff were friendly and helpful. We went back the following evening for bowling - kids loved it.
The hotel rooms were on the 12th floor but facing away from the old town so very little to look at. After reading reviews about dirty, drab rooms before leaving we were slightly concerned about what to expect from the hotel. However, we found the rooms on the 12th floor clean and well presented. We have stayed at several five star hotels and I do think it is more like a four star (thin towels, tiny bathroom, insufficient shower gel -had to ask for more, no shampoo.)
However, the metro next to the hotel was extremely convenient and the beauty of Prague in the snow more than made up for the small imperfections of the hotel. Would I stay at this hotel again - YES.
Not a five stars hotel at all
We stayed four nights in the Corinthia Towers.
The first impression you get when entering the hall is great, it is what you expect from a five stars hotel.
We were given a room in th 7th floor, when we opened the door that good impression flew away.
The room furniture was very old, the TV was broken and the bathtub was incredibly dirty.
We went down to reception and explained that the bath was dirty. They apologized and gave us another room in the 7th floor.
This one was worse than the first, the bathtub was not only as dirty as the other, the floor was broken and it had been badly fixed.
You were not able to have a shower there without a cut in your feet.
There was also ambiental music in the bathroom, the problem was that control was broken and you could not turn it off.
The volume was so high that would prevent anybody from sleeping for the whole night.
Again to reception, no apologies this time, new room in the 8th floor. Fearing the worst we opened the bathroom door, and the bathtub was dirty!!!
not as dirty as in the previous rooms but dirty as you would expect in a hostal not in a five stars hotel. Tired of complaining we stayed at that room.
The beds were very very soft, so soft that was unconfortable to sleep on them. The room felt old, the doors, the TV set, the beds ... all was old.
Talking with other customers we realized that, at least the rooms in the 7th & 8th floor were in a very poor condition. I do not know about other floors,
but stay away from the 7th or 8th if you dare to go to this hotel.
This is not a five stars hotel, seeing the rooms it would hardly be a four stars.
I am sure anybody can find a truly four stars hotel in the city center cheaper and better than the Corinthia Towers.
The Holiday Inn located in front of the Corinthia is brand new and looks much better.
Helped make Prague memorable
For Americans who are used to modern amenities, this is a very comfortable hotel. It doesn't have old world charm, but it more than makes up for it in comfort. Now it is not located near most of the tourist attractions, but it is practically on top of a subway station. Also, Prague allegedly has untrustworthy cab drivers, but the taxi services available from the Corinthia are good and fair. There are several restaurants including an Asian restaurant and an Italian restaurant (best tiramisu I've ever had) and a very affordable basement restaurant next to, of all things, a bowling alley. Breakfast offerings were terrific.
Like I said, it isn't centrally located, but the advantage there is that it allows for an incredible view of the city including the cathedral, the river and the castle. It is completely, completely worth it to splurge for an upper floor room facing the city. There was a problem w/ our room being too small for three people and the hotel quickly apologized and moved us into a upper floor suite at no extra charge. The lower room did have a really great view too, however. I was nervous about going to Eastern Europe and this hotel really made me relax.
Myself and my husband took a last minute break to Pague and stayed at the Corinthia towers Hotel on March 16th 2004... It was totaly amazing and by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in... we were treated like royalty and enjoyed every minute of it!!! We pampered ourselves and lived it up... We would definatley stay in this hotel again...
Great hotel but if you dont like high rise, dont go. We were on the 18th floor with great view of the city especially after it had snowed.
The room was very clean and comfortable. Staff are polite but stuffy with some of them bordering on rude. "Madam, can't you see I'm busy" was the response one fellow traveller got at the bar for a perfectly innocent question. There's a good choice for breakfast but it's badly run: nobody tells you where to sit which resulted in someone accusing us of taking their table; you have to ask for tea/coffee but they wont reply they'll just bring it eventually; the glasses are kept yards away from the juices; etc. All a bit of a shambles. Ate in the Rickshaw restaurant one of the nights which was really nice apart from the two at the table next to us being a mere 6 inches away who were hanging on our every word. The hotel has its own taxi service which is 400 Crown into the Old Town which was the cheapest taxi we found. There is a metro stop within the hotel grounds where you can buy all different passes - the hotel sells singles only. It is a bit out of town but we found it easy enough to get in and out so would probably go back.

Travel Blogs from Prague
We arrived in Munich about 9:30 am. Since they are rebuilding the Lufthansa gates we deplaned out on the runway and caught a shuttle to the main airport. With our passports out we sailed through customs to await our flight to Prague. Did I mention that our customs agent was a big old slice of the cutie pie? It was a great way to start off the day. …
... and smells daily. Two blocks off the river, a well manicured river bank is welcoming to pedestrians, cyclists and skate boarders alike. Using the cobblestone walk ways, we found our way to Prague's riverboat docks and looked over cruise options and fares. At least six companies offer various tours, many with boats departing every 30 minutes or on the hour. Salesmen make their pitch, but it's easily avoidable as we continued onto Charles Bridge before settling on an hour long ...
... couldn't believe the amount of money and work that had gone into this place. Construction of the church began in 1388 and is now on the UNESCO Heritage list, as it should be. The last 5 days have been so tiring but also some that I will never forget. Berlin and Prague you have out done yourselves and I hope to return to further explore what you have to offer. I can't wait to get to Munich and see Cynthia and family and of course The Sound of Music tour of ...
... However the feet are a little worse for wear and Geoff also isn't without a few aches and pains.....and has even struggled to keep up with my cracking pace! We arrived at our hotel on the "lesser town" side of the river around 2pm and headed off on our usual orientation tour, once again on foot. We have heard good things about Prague and it is a place I have always wanted to visit and can recall singing about good King Wenceslas when I was in primary school ...
... had to get to terminal 3 and there was a bus which would take us there. The next one was in half an hour - this doesn't seem so bad so we went and waited for the bus while trying to figure out their public transport system. Eventually the bus turns up and we asked the driver if it went to terminal 3 but he thought we wanted 3 tickets - it was all a big palaver so we just hoped for the best and took 2 tickets off him. Terminal 3 ...
