Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars David Prague
En principio decir que el hotel en general está muy bien, totalmente recomendable.
Para empezar el hotel está recién estrenado, apenas tiene unos meses. Por tanto está todo nuevo lo cual se agradece.
Sin duda el punto fuerte del hotel son las habitaciones: amplias, límpias, con una cama gigante, tele de plasma con todos los canales autonómicos españoles, tve, etc, y un baño muy limpio y a la altura.
El buffet de desayuno es variado y bueno (excepto el café, muy flojo estilo americano). No hay grandes aglomeraciones de gente en ningún momento y se puede desayunar sin las apreturas de otros hoteles.
En cuanto a zonas comunes no tienen restaurante en el hotel aunque sí servicio de habitaciones 24h, el cual no usamos así que no puedo decir. Tienen una pequeña barra que hace de bar donde sirven helados, bedidas y cócteles. El encargado de esta por las tardes es un cubano, Miguel, muy simpático y con el que daba gusto pasar un rato al llegar por la noche tomando algo. El resto del servicio bastante correcto. Además la mayoría habla o entiende el español.
El único punto regular es la situación. Si bien está lo suficientemente cerca de todos los puntos de interés para poder ir andando (10-15 minutos de caminata como mucho de la plaza de wenceslao y de la de la ciudad vieja) de noche las 2 última calles de acceso al hotel están un poco oscuras y solitarias, si bien nunca tuvimos ningún problema, solo que al estar en una ciudad desconocida siempre te da algún reparo de más.
Excelent!! Love it
This hotel is very modern, brand new plasma TV with satellite, nice queen bed, quite rooms. Everything smells like new still. Nice people working there, very close by to the river. Great place to stay and walk to main attractions. This hotel is as nice as the 4 Seasons in Prague and the price is even better. Very affordable.
The breakfast is included. Great food, many selections.
Don't hesitate, this is a great place to stay. I stayed there for 10 days and enjoy it a lot.
Why is such a good hotel so cheap?
It's a mystery why such a great hotel is so cheap. Well deserves its four stars. Good connection to airport via no. 100 bus and yellow metro line. Beautiful exterior. Interior recently refurbished - everything looks brand new but has some nice older features preserved. Big rooms - simple, modern and stylish, big double beds, flat screen TV on wall, great bathrooms, spotlessly clean. Well above average hot and cold buffet breakfast. Free Internet in lobby. Location looks a bit away from the tourist centres, but it's not as far as it looks, it's a nice riverside walk to the Charles Bridge, and tram and metro stops are nearby. Polite and helpful staff with good English. I've really got to nit-pick to find anything negative: the lobby is a "smoking area" so it really stinks, and you have to walk through it to get to the lift and then try to hold your breath until the lift arrives - it would be better if the "smoking area" was a side room somewhere, or better yet, outside.
An undiscovered (as yet) jewel
The Hotel David is a truly four/five star hotel about five minutes walk from the centre of prague and its many, many attractions. Tucked away from most of the noise of the city it offers excellent quality accommodation in good sized rooms with all facilities. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have experienced. I slept well, the shower is powerful and I felt safe and secure the whole time. The rooms were cleaned immaculately.
As always, the thing that makes a difference is the quality of staff. The Hotel David scores very highly here with some of the friendliest, most informed and supportive receptionists I have encountered. They recommended routes, tours and restaurants which were all very good. They went out of their way to ensure we were well looked after and always checked afterwards that things had been satisfactory.
Two minor moans. A coffee/tea tray in the room would have been nice and at least one English news channel (other than CNBC) would have been useful.
Above all this. It is very, very reasonably priced. It has only been open a few months and they are trying to build up custom. In time this will be much more expensive but at the moment it represents excellent value for money.
A couple of tips. Firstly, great restaurant around the corner pretends to be a medieval czeck restaurant but is good fun, good food and very cheap. Prague Zoo is amazing. Huge number of animals all very well looked after. Tour to Czezky Cumlove is good but its a very, very long way in a rickety minibus so you have to really want to go and need to have a strong bottom.
If you are going to Prague this Hotel, and the Arcadia Residence are the places to stay.
Great newly opened hotel
I have been to Prague a total of 6 times and Hotel David is by far the best hotel I have tried. I am a design buff (meaning I for instance love The Cumberland in London that some other might find something out of the space age) and fell in love with the really cool design solutions. The rooms are sizeable by European standards although some North Americans still might find them just average. The breakfast buffet is excellent and the service level is very high. Despite not being located in the middle of the action (but still nicely located within walking distance), the hotel is well worth the 4 stars and the quality/price ratio is close to unbeatable for one of Europe's most beautiful cities.
Als wir im Hotel ankamen, gab es zunächst eine kleine Enttäuschung. Wir mussten 25 Minuten an der Rezeption warten, während das Personal am Telefon beschäftigt war! Als wir aber dann schließlich eingecheckt hatten, war es fantastisch. Das Zimmer war wunderbar und man konnte bequem zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten laufen. Das Frühstück war sehr gut.
Ich bin 24 und war mit einer Freundin des gleichen Alters für ein Wochenende in Prag, um Sehenswürdigkeiten anzuschauen. Das war wirklich das billigste Hotel, das wir finden konnten. Wir waren also WIRKLICH begeistert! Anscheinend waren keine anderen Freunde im Hotel, sondern nur Pärchen, aber das hat uns nicht weiter gestört. Ich kann das Hotel nur wärmstens empfehlen.
When we first arrived at the hotel there was some initial dissapointment, we had to wait 25 mins stood at reception while the staff were on the phone! When we finally got checked in it was fab! The room was wonderful, it was only a short walk to the attractions and the breakfast was lovely.
I am 24 and I went with a female friend of the same age for a sightseeing weekend, this was actually the cheapest hotel we could find so we were VERY impressed! There didn't seem to be any other friends in the hotle, it was all couples but it didn't really bother us!
I would reccomend the hotel highly!
Loved the breakfasts
we have just returned from a 3 night stay in Prague. We were delighted with the Eurostars David Hotel, which had opened only a few months prior to our stay. The hotel was stylish, the rooms were excellent and the staff were attentive and helpful. The hotel is situated approximately 10 minutes walk from Charles Bridge. We did not need to take public transport and were able to comfortably walk to all the sights which Prague has to offer. The breakfasts were fabulous, a great deal of choice, from cold meats/cheese, pastries, and the usual hot breakfast. Overall we were completely satisfied with the hotel. We would recommend the hotel and would certainly stay there again, were we to return to Prague.
I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Very plush and spotless. Friendly, helpful staff who always have smiles on their faces. Good sized well appointed room with huge bed. Cleaned daily. Hotel around 15 mins walk from both Wenslaslas square & Old Town square. 2 mins walk from the river. Never had to use public transport once during our 3 night stay. Spot on breakfast with both continental & English. Cheap drinks from bar. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone. Check out St Seriols church crypt (just around corner) where the poor czech soldiers were killed during WW2, very moving. For a excellent, cheap meal turn right out of hotel, then right again, first bar/restaurant on right, 2 course meal for 2 & bottle of wine - £13, and good with it.
We stayed at the Eurostars David at the end of March for 3 nights, We couldn't find any reviews before we went so we were very wary of what to expect. When we arrived we were very pleased, the hotel is beautiful, the bedrooms are a good size, our room had a king size bed, plasma tv and a very modern and well equiped bathroom, the bedrooms were cleaned every morning with fresh towels added to the bathroom. The staff on reception were fantastic and nothing was to much trouble. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so I couldn't comment on food but it was freshley cooked each morning and smelt great.
Location of the hotel was good, its about a 10 min walk from all the major attractions, its located near to the river, so you can walk alongside the river up to charles bridge, which we enjoyed most days. We walked everywhere and didn't catch a tram/bus once.
Overall I would def recommend this Hotel, it only opened mid March which is why there are no rewiews, you will really have a great stay.

After breakfast I walked to Republic Square to join today's tour which left at 9.30. As soon as the bus moved off a lady with a microphone explained the day's agenda. We start at the ossuary church at Sedlec where we would have half an hour to look around and take photos, then on to the medieval town of Kutna Hora for sightseeing and lunch before returning to Prague around 3pm. The drive takes about one and a quarter hours and we arrived at Sedlec about ...
... with the rest of the tour group. (There are also artist studios upstairs...can I move here???) Ben walked for four hours without complaining and Alex enjoyed it completely too. A day well spent, and a really memorable time. Awesome.
I actually only have three Prague-lems:
1. I didn't get to see the Astronomical clock strike the hour and do it's thing. The boys weren't interested and we were never there on the hour - oh well.
2. I wanted ...
... I had a Moravian Rooster, Richard had a Brisk Negroni. The Negroni was a twist on a classic, using locally sourced spirits and with the addition of caffé casoni. The Rooster was an interesting and flavourful shot comprising thyme infused Vermouth, honey liqueur and spiced rum, served under a bell jar full of smoke from cherry wood which was piped under the glass just before serving. It was unsurprisingly smokey but delicious. This was accompanied by local breads and ...
... were a delightful end to a brilliant day in Prague.
I was on a run with the tours and day two Stephanie, Travis and I decided to get out of the city and take a day tour to explore the incredible UNESCO world heritage-listed Kutna Hora. We took a 1h train ride and arrived at a graveyard and 15th century Cemetery Church of All Saints - here is the....Bone Chapel. Literally a chapel made of human bones including a chandelier comprising ...
... Haha We found a few more random museums like the torture museum and the sex Tokyo museum. They literally can make a museum out of anything. We just shook our heads and were determined to find the craziest ones. I think the three were a great selection of randomness if I do say so myself! While wandering about the city I noticed that we had come up to a huge clock tower that people were all gathering by. Five minutes till the hour and I wanted to wait to see ...
