Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Esplanade Prague
Good location, unfriendly staff
Although the hotel itself was beautiful and in a great location (within walking distance to train station), the staff was unfriendly. My husband and I had reserved a room with a queen bed, but were stuck with two single beds.
Also, we found that the hotel charged for the use of the room safe.
Excellent Value for Money
Had really good stay at this hotel. excellent value for money. bar too expensive compared to other bars in the city, which would explain why nobody drank there !
Staff very friendly. Rooms were of a very high quality. But no tea and coffee facilities in the room.
Would recommended it to others.
Just come back from superb 4 days in Prague. Hotel excellent, especially room711. Amazing view from balcony looking over roof tops to castle. Food very good and service excellent. Had 2 evening set menus which were presented nicely and tasty. \bathroom had underfloor heating whichwas anadded bonus. Deep bath and plenty of hot water. Only 5 minutes fron Wenceslas square and 10 to 15 minutes walk from the Old Town square. City sights were well worth seeing but too many glass and Russian doll shops!!!! Need to introduce some shops with other souvenirs.
Good Location, very clean and comfortable
The location is very convenient. Close to the metro and reasonable walking distance from the main old square.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and the staff friendly. The breakfast was quite expensive but plenty of choice.
I wouldn't rate it 5 star, but if you can get a good deal then you shouldn't be disappointed.
Don't waste your money staying at this hotel
I had my first and last stay at the Hotel Esplanade at the begining of June. It does not merit anywhere near a five star rating and lacks the facilities and level of service I would expect from a luxury hotel.
Our room was small, not air conditioned and had very little space for storage of clothes and luggage. The room was nicely decorated but the en-suite bath room only had a shower not a bath.
The sauna located on the top floor was not working and the room was locked. I asked to view the facility but the staff refused.
The hotel bar is very expensive in comparison to the many bars in Prague which probably explains why no one uses it. You also have to pay extra for the use of the room safe.
All in all, a three star experience at five star prices.
We found the hotel beautiful especially its outstanding chandeliers, food & service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for them we reccommend this hotel unreservedley
I fully recommend this hotel!
I've just stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and have only got praise for it. Our bedroom was enhanced by an ornate chandelier and the entire hotel is sophisticatedly decorated, with a "grand mother" of a chandelier in the breakfast room too. Our rooms were cleaned daily and fresh linen replaced daily. Although we did not have a bath in our suite, the shower was powerful and the bathroom was modern and spacious. The buffet breakfast served a wide range of foods and the service was courteous, although staff seemed a bit timid. This hotel is perfectly located - only a small stroll away from the city centre and yet very quiet. I fully recommend this hotel.
Warning - Don't Stay Here
The staff is plesant but not very accomodating. The rooms are small. Maybe this was a nice hotel at one time, but not anymore. I should be rated a 3.5 star. The elevator broke dropping us 1 floor and stranding us for 30 min. The management just shrugged and said "it is an old hotel, sometimes these things happen" The bellman broke the wheels on my luggage. When I contacted the management, they said that I did it and was just blaming thier hotel. The food on the breakfast buffet was cold and of poor quality. I would not stay there again.

... I know, big surprise. :) They loved it, of course - who doesn't? When we were done enjoying our gelato, we headed back to the apartment for the evening to begin packing for Prague.
Emily and Diane were troopers for agreeing to go to Prague with us! They had hardly been in Germany for 24 hours, and we were already taking them to a different country. They were excited and ready to go, though! After Andy got off work, he went to the local rental car agency, and got ...
... The airport was about 15 miles away, but I got there in time for the only flight out of there at 6:30am. Now I'm not a phobic when it comes to flying, but loading onto smaller places freaks me out a bit. A passenger plane of about 45 people took us at sunrise (though no sun) for a quick hop over to Zagreb, the capital up north. Even though the flight was only 55 minutes, they managed drinks and a snack... 'Drink? Snack? Prepare for descent'. With only 30 ...
... through the 'Paris' end of Prague where there were heavily armed police on every corner guarding the exclusive up market shops such as Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuiton, Tiffany etc. we were then transported back to the hotel after enjoying an ice-cream on the banks of the 'Vlatava River'. After a short rest, we wandered through the back streets to find somewhere for dinner. We settled for a quaint little traditional Czech restaurant for a very ...
... ages, and gruesome instruments of torture. You could see out of the small gaps in the wall that were used to fire crossbows at invading armies. From there we backtracked to the cathedral, this time with a ticket. We got to see some extremely intricate stained glass windows, and some extraordinarily detailed Christian sculptures that looked more like they came from an age of Satan worship than anything else - with scary looking Cherubs appearing to lift caskets, plus ...
... Missing Munich to be in Prague had meant by default that I would miss Dachau, which annoyed me more than I can say, but the journey East now would put me somewhere even more poignant and thought provoking. Just outside of the city of Krakow lies the most horrific of the Nazi’s attempts to exterminate the Jews, and it was there that the rackety old bus I was on was now taking me. If there was one place where I could be guaranteed to get the alien experience I was after, that place would have to be Auswtich, ...
