Historical Traveler Reviews Falkensteiner Hotel Maria Prag Prague
Comfortable, modern, very pleasant
We booked this hotel over the internet after reading the reviews on this site and elsewhere. I have to say we were not disappointed. The hotel is very modern and everything looks new and clean. Of course this may not be your cup of tea, if you're looking for authentic Prague, this hotel is not for you, but we loved it; particularly the breakfast room which is large, light and airy with a fantastic buffet with everything you might want . In fact we found that we could easily skip lunch with all that we had eaten at breakfast!
The room was also good, with plenty of light, 3m high ceilings which gave a fantastic impression of space and a good clean bathrom with shower and bath. There was a television in the room, but bewarned, most of the channels are in German or Czech, so don't expect to stay in and watch tv, but then again you're in Prague! Go out there and enjoy this fantastic city!!
Staff were polite and helpful, not overly effusive, but there if you need anything and unfailingly courteous.
The Old Town is about a 10mn walk from the hotel and we found that we could quite easily walk everywhere we wanted, we visited the whole of Prague by foot, including the castle, quite easily. The only time we took transport was to and from the airport. Getting around by foot also means you can take advantage of the beautiful buildings, make sure you always look up, there is always something to see in this beautiful place.
I would say the only little blip is that the rooms aren't very well soundproofed, but in general the fellow guests were very quiet, so we were never woken up before about 8.30. But a minor complaint, all in all a very good hotel for a reasonable price, we would definitely stay again if we return to Prague (as I would most certainly love to do, it really is a magical place).
The Hotel You Want to Stay At
Want to wake up in a modern spacious recently renovated airy room, with a comfortable bed you'll want to use as soon as you open the door to your room? Want an absolutely quiet sleeping experience, with double windows that you can open and close at your option for ventilation and/or a view? Want a fabulous included breakfast with enough variety to more than satisfy carnivores and vegetarians alike? Want a hotel with a new steam room and an adjoining sauna which are only about 15 feet away from a well-equiped fitness room? Want an elegant affordable hotel with character facing a quiet park and only about about 200 feet from the National Bohemian Museum and Wenceslaus Square and conveniently situated within walking distance to public transportation (definitely use the trams!), and other historical and central shopping areas? If you answered yes to any of the above, you want to book the Falkensteiner Maria Prag Hotel whenever you visit Prague. My only complaint: Make sure that you bring a credit card in addition to American Express, just in case they tell you that American Express "declined" the swipe. This was the first visit to Prague for me and my wife and we would definitely book there again when next we visit Prague. By the way, 3 days is long enough to see a lot, especially if you have other cities on your itinerary. Written by a demanding U.S. lawyer.
Hotel Maria Prag
Nachdem wir vier Nächte in Budapest im K&K Opera und noch einmal vier Nächte im Best Western Beethoven in Wien verbracht hatten, wo wir verwöhnt worden sind, waren wir ein wenig enttäuscht von dem kalten Empfang, den uns die Angestellten im Maria bereiteten. Sie schienen genervt zu sein einfache Fragen zu beantworten, wie z.B. den Namen eines guten Restaurants, wir bekamen keinen Namen, oder die Glühbirne im Zimmer zu wechseln, die wurde nie gewechselt. Nie ein Lächeln und nie ein freundliches Wort. Das Zimmer war sehr geräumig aber der Stuhl und das Sofa sind schrecklich für den Rücken. Das Badezimmer ist sehr modern, es gab Schwierigkeiten mit dem Seifenspender. Das Hotel ist in einer guten Lage einige Minuten vom Hauptplatz entfernt. Verpasst nicht das Restaurant auf der anderen Straßenseite mit dem Namen Sherwood, ausgezeichnetes Essen und guter Service mit einem Nichtraucherbereich!!! Sie haben eine gute Auswahl an Wildfleisch.
Großartiges Hotel, großartiger Service!
Ich verbrachte eine Woche in Prag; 19.-26. August 2005. Die Stadt ist großartig und das Hotel auch! Das Zimmer war groß und die Leute sind sehr freundlich. Wenn ich sie etwas gefragt habe, halfen sie mir gerne. Das Frühstück ist auch gut. Es gibt eine große Auswahl an Brot, Süßgebäck, Käse, Schinken etc. Es gibt auch Jogurt, Früchte, usw.
Wir hatten zwei Mängel in dem Zimmer (ein Licht funktionierte nicht und ich brauchte eine zweite Matratze), beide waren behoben, als wir nach zwei Stunden zurückkamen.
Dieses Hotel ist nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß vom Wenzelsplatz entfernt und 12 Minuten von der Karlsbrücke. Auf dem Wenzelsplatz kann man alles finden; großartige Restaurants (ein gutes und billiges Chinarestaurant; nicht das Büfett; Ru-Yi ist auf dem Wenzelsplatz neben einem Squash-Center). Man muss vorbeilaufen an Debenham, Terrassen, Geschäften und mehr!
Nehmt ein Taxi vom Flughafen (650 Kronen; vergesst nicht 10% Trinkgeld). Ihr solltet den grauen Volkswagen nehmen; Flughafentransfer. Immer den Schildern nach. Es ist eine ca. 20-minütige Fahrt.
Zögert nicht wenn Ihr Fragen habt.
We like this hotel. Clean and the staff was helpful. The buffet breakfast was also great. There's a large selection of food. Our room was quite and the television was working. We'd stay in this hotel if we come to Prague again.
Hotel Maria Prague
After spending four nghts in Budapest K&K Opera and another four nights at the Best Western Beethoven in Vienna,where we pampered, we were a kind of disapointed by the cold reception we got from the staff at the Maria. They seemed annoyed to answer basic questions such the name of a good restaurant, never got the name, change the bulb in the bedroom, bulb was never changed. Never a smile and never a welcomed word. The room was very spacious but the chair and the sofa are terrible on the back. Bathroom very modern, dificulties with the soap dispenser. The hotel is in a good location few minutes from the main square. Don't miss the restaurant across the street called Sherwood, excellent food and good service with a section for Non Smokers!!! They have a good selection of venison meat.
Great hotel, great service!
I stayed a week in Prague; 19-26 of August 2005. The city is great and also the hotel! The room was large and the people are very friendly. If I would ask them something the gladly helped me. The breakfast is also good. There is a wide selection in bread, sweets, cheese, ham and all that stuff. There is also yoghurt, fruit etc.
We had 2 defects in the room (one light wasn't working and I needed a second matrass) both were solved when we came back after 2 hours.
This hotel is located only a 5 minute walk from Wenceslas square and 12 from Charlesbridge. You can find anything on Wenceslas square; great restaurants (a good and cheap chinese RESTAURANT; not the bufet; Ru-Yi it's on Wenceslas square next to a squash centre)You have to walk passed Debenhams, terraces, shops and more!
Take a taxi from the airport (650 krone; don't forget 10% tip). You should take the grey Volkswagen; airport transfer. Just follow the signs. It's about a 20 minute drive.
Feel free to ask questions.
Maria Prag...nice hotel horrid service!
The hotel has been beautifully appointed and lovelingly retored. The service is lousy. The service is no where near the four star mark given to this hotel. The reception area staff are snotty, act as if you are the ugly American constantly interrupting them, intruding on their conversation with bell man, fiends on the phone, etc. I finally had to involve the management who helped somewhat, but was told that the rude, problem employee I was having difficulty with (No language barrier here, the employee went out of her way to be aloof), was on her last day. I advise the manager should send the employee home due to her rude behavior. This gave a most unpleasant feeling on an American's first trip to Prague. With this experience combined with other nightmarish encounters, I may never visit Prague again!
Take your money and go to the Renaissance!

... a bit cool so we walked back across Charles Bridge to the town square and then to the Powder Tower and back to our hotel, window shopping and looking in souvenir shops along the way, getting to our room around 7. Since we had had a lot to eat already, the jour was late and the weather was damp we decided to stay in for the rest of the evening and have snacks and champagne. Unfortunately Alan forgot to bring the right adapter cables, so none of the camera photos can be uploaded to this ...
... of fanciness. I have pictures but none of them do it justice, it was almost worth the cost of the ticket just to see the inside of the theatre! As for the ballet, it was just lovely. I saw Sleeping Beauty by the Prague National Theater Ballet. The dancing was incredible and the costumes were wonderful. Little bits of humor in the scenes was also great. And the orchestra was incredible too! Overall the perfect way to end my time in Prague. Afterwards I met Theresa, a girl I had met ...

Apparently it was not announced, just blown up. It made, said Vaclav, a hell of a bang. No surprise there, that much granite had to be hard to break down.

My boots were made for walkin' when I was in Prague. I walked 8 hours straight, 2 days in a row just so that I could fit everything in that I wanted to do (it would have been less but I also visited Kutna Hora- the Bone Chapel).

So after exploring the old town we headed back to our hostel. But on the way back we stopped at this bar to buy tickets (in the form of tshirts) for the Prague bar crawl that everyone goes on about. Tickets were only 25 euros, but this included entry into all the bars and clubs, free drinks for ...
