Historical Traveler Reviews Astoria Hotel Prague
Not 4 star
The hotel describes itself as 4 star. It is not. There are better 3 star hotels in Prague. The hotel is very clean and well located. It also has secure storage for luggage if you want to stay later than the 12 noon checkout. The rooms are all the same size and too small. They do not have tea and coffee making facilities which I would expect from a 4 star hotel. All rooms have single beds, but they will put them together to make a double. The bar and restaurant are overpriced. As previous reviewers have reported, there are not enough tables to seat everyone at breakfast. The breakfast is not really worth bothering with anyway. I booked with the hotel direct, which was the cheapest option as they often have special prices. However they will quote a price in Euros. Strange as neither the UK or Czech Republic use these. Although you will pay in CZK they seem to use the conversion rate most beneficial to them.
Astoria Hotel. Not in the quiet area they stated!!
We have just returned from 7 nights at the Astoria,The hotel itself was one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in,and there were still ladies cleaning the main area at 11pm.
For the first 3 days the hotel was quite quiet but by Wednesday 2 groups of Italians arrived and boy did you know it! The hotel did not seem to be able to cope with the vast amount that turned up for breakfast even though it was only 8-15 am When we arrived in the dining room there was nowhwere for us to sit after about 10 minuits we were asksed to share a table with some of the other guests no problem there except they had run out of crockery and we had to wait while the waitress went and washed some!!
In the brochure they state the hotel is in a quiet side street Dont you beleive it it has to be one of the busiest short cuts in Prague! Then there were the refuse collections every morning at 4 am followed at 4-45am by the bottle van collecting all the empty bottles from the bars and hotels on the street,the next disturbance was about 5-30am deliveries began to arrive at the Kotva department store which is sittuated directly behind the hotel but the vans parked right outside the hotel .
I know all of this is out of the hotels hands but I dont think they should state that it is in a quiet area.
If it wasnt for the early morning wake ups I would deffinately stay here again the cleanliness and the location of the hotel were excellent.
Good Location but not-friendly staff
I was at Astoria Hotel in Prague for some nights last November. The hotel is clean and have a good location, just near from old center. But I found it overpriced. And the biggest problem of the hotel is the attitude of the people who works there: they never smiled and sometimes they don't even say "good morning" or "hello" or something. I found it very sad. I only recomend Astoria if you don't have more options. And be carefull beacsue the hotel is very expensive.
Quaint Delight in Heart of Old Town
I agree with many of the previous reviews. We moved here deliberately after a three-day conference at the Praha Hilton to finish out our week in the city. We expressly picked the place because of the balconies on the top floors and its great location. In contrast to the Hilton - which is significantly over-priced, not clean, has mixed service, a poor location and is too American in atmosphere and fellow clientele. Now, I agree that very little is cheap anymore in central Prague but in contrast to the Hilton which is designed like a 1970s communist bloc block of bureaucratic redundancy the Astoria possesses a very accommodating staff, spotless rooms, great breakfast buffet and ideal central location but reasonably quiet. We encourage you to request a room on a top floor with a balcony. There's nothing like a late afternoon sitting back with a glass of wine and some cheese and fruit (from the local Albert's supermarket in the basement under the Kotva department store) and looking across the city church towers to the Castle on the far bank of the Vlatva. Highly recommended.
Clean and close to everything
I thought this hotel was very nice. Not very fancy but certainly clean and close to everything. It is in Old Town and the street is a little off the beaten path so it was quiet. We stayed on the 7th floor and had a nice view. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a clean room for a reasonable price in Old Town.
Astoria Hotel--Just right
Hotel Astoria is centrally located in the Old Town and has everything you need on your doorstop.
The room was perfect with everything necessary provided, spotlessly clean and maintained to a high standard. A safety deposit box was provided in the room. Old town square, Municipal Hall, Powder Tower, Jewish Quarter are all around the corner.
The staff were very helpful and all questions asked were answered efficiently. Metro station is around the corner and shopping centre is behind the hotel.
I booked through Venere.com which I found to be the cheapest. At just less than 100 euro a night I felt it was excellent value and would recommend it for a short or longer stay.
This hotel is a great hotel. Brand new refurbished and close to both Charles Bridge and old town square. yet in a quiet street with plenty of restaraunts and bars around.
Hotel service was excellent. Would definitely go back.
This hotel is very central, 5 mins (or less!) walk from Old Town Square located on a quiet side street. The hotel is new and modern. All the rooms are very clean and come with Safety Deposit Box, TV and minibar as standard. Large Buffet breakfast available every morning. Excellent Service. Would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

... across the Vltava River and all the way up the hill back towards Prague Castle. Near the castle is the Strahov Monastery which has a famous library and a history of beer brewing. We drank and ate at the brewery, Klasterni Pivovar Strahov and it felt great after all of the walking we did. Jarred tried an unfiltered dark lager and a seasonal dark ale. We ate meat and potatoes. ...
... streets of Prague in search of some of the main tourist attractions: Charles Bridge, Franz Kafka museum, the Astronomical Clock, and some Trdelnik (a traditional Czech pastry that I ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner throughout the trip - I’m actually pretty sure that none of the locals eat it and it is now strictly sold to tourists) - moving on. As we made our way to Charles Bridge we saw a few tourists, and then a few more, and then ...
... and we were out of a service area for the phone. We did get a half time score from Matt - not good news, down by 4. We had to wait until Linz to get the result.
The countryside was the same - beautifully green with grain fields and plantation timber scattered on both sides of the track. The train arrived on rescheduled time. We unloaded and went down in the lift to gong level. We were not air where to go. Got rudely knocked back by one girl,when we requested ...
... am going to miss spending it at the Fischer’s and watching Sam, Jake and Delaney search for Easter eggs. Please send me pictures if you are lucky enough to go.
Oh I forgot to mention that I have found a store that sells American snacks. I got pancake mix and herseys chocolate sauce for icecream… so much for loosing weight before yacht week haha I have attached pictures of my art and some of my time in Prague when I was there last time.
... some coffees to even myself out.
After wandering around taking touristy photos for a day and purchasing some more muesli for the van (well it was for me but is stored in the van) I headed for home. Now the tram was easy enough and I made it to the bus station I needed without incident.
Things swiftly went south however as Google deserted me. Rather my sim cards (I've got a UK one also) were up to **** all so I had no way to 'just ask Google' how to get ...
