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.

... well. She wanted to check out the castle but decided to go to the old town for a bite to eat with us. After a spot of lunch I directed Rebecca to the castle and we went back to the hostel to chill out before my coach journey to Cesky Krumlov. I was looking forward to going to Cesky Krumlov. At the same time I was gutted that I was missing the pub crawl at the hostel that night. Wish I knew before I booked the coach. Around 18.00 I headed to the coach station to go on my next ...
... We revisited a lot of places we'd seen on the free walking tour and found a few more little side streets and attractions that we'd be unaware of it. We'd be given the task of finding a Great British flag too which seemed near impossible in the you touristy centre of Prague! But somehow we stumbled across one. That evening, after lining our stomachs of course, we headed out to do a pub tour. This however was a fail as the bad weather had deterred everyone and only 5 of us turned up! ...

... Unfortunately, the hostel life is not as fun when I begin to lose my voice. It is hard to keep up conversation with a sore throat! I wish there was an easy button I could press that would instantly take away my sickness! Instead of seeing the Prague nightlife, I turned in early at 12 which is about 6 hours too early here!

... of the colors of the buildings and roofs just popped out of the green trees. Prague is a gorgeous city, so much architecture and thought put into everything. We saw more people when we were walking back to the main square. Every city we have been lucky to see people from QU. The main square had an Easter market going on which had a bunch of different foods and gifts, even live music with dancing. It was really nice seeing it and experiencing their markets.
