Corinthia Hotel Prague
Travel Blogs from Prague
OK---since we last blogged, we have been to the Baroque Castle Theater in Cesky Krumlov. They showed us how the scenes and designs and where people sat for 8 hours at a time on hard, backless benches. We went under the stage and saw how scenes were swiftly changed. Unfortunately, we weren't able to go on the brewery tour, but we made up for it on …
The rain finally subsided and we were able to go out for the late afternoon / evening. The four of us went to the Charles River Bridge, this area is full of people, local artisans selling just about anything you can imagine. The weather was great. There were people on small boats all over the Moldau, a rock concert going on on the North Bank, a …
Last night we went to eat at Wenceslas Square again and took the Metro which is Prague's version of the subway. The food was good and the gelato afterwards was even better. This morning we went for a tour of the major sights of the city including the palace, the palace cathedral, the astrological clock, and Jewish Town.
Keeping with the …
... my river cruise. I went back to where I didn't get one from the other day. I still was just one person, but just as I was about to give up, a group of 3 tourists came up looking for a boat ride. I'm going to admit that while I got lucky and was happy to go on the boat ride, finally, it was not all I expected it to be. It was a nice, calm ride and a good view of the city, but the information was a droning recording that contained about 8 languages we didn't need and started to put me ...

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.
There may be parts of this hotel that are 5 star but we didn't find them.
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.
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.
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 stayed four nights in the Corinthia Towers.
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.
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...
