... 0 degrees outside!!! On Sunday morning we set off on a walking tour of Prague, starting at the top of the city near the castle and then making our way down through the old town and to the main square and Christmas markets. I'd been to Prague before, so while the sights weren't new, it was great to be there again and see everything decorated for Christmas. The rest of ...
... asleep propped up against each other in a tangled mess of arms and legs. They look just like puppies. I love being in a city with cobblestones. Open the hotel windows and there is a distinct deep rattle from cars and a clicking of heels from pedestrians. Prague's streets have kilometers of stones in several colours, arranged in elaborate traditional patterns. It's daunting to think that each stone was cut and placed by hand. Being in the street is a visual treat, there is ...

The guy dropped the half-way-out wallet back into my purse and tried to be dismissive by getting kind of angry and speaking loudly back at me as if I was the bad guy of the story. And remember: He and I ...

We finished with the churches just in time to see the astronomical clock chime 11. When it chimes, the skeleton figure pulls a bell and then men inside the tower go around in a circle and put there faces in the window. I wasn't that ...

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.
