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.

... steps up to a lookout, from where we got some spectacular views, with the whole city laid out before us and about 7 or 8 bridges over the river. We carried on up a pathway through some very scenic woods and gardens until we reached the castle, where the Wilsons left us to go and meet some friends. We wandered around for a while, and then found a streetside restaurant for lunch (goulash / roast pork and dumplings).
Then it ...
... homemade dumplings and fresh grated horseradish on top. The entire meal was delicious and helped us use up the last of our Czech Korunas currency as it is not able to be redeemed back home again. We brought just the right amount of Korunas for Prague. The cost of living is very reasonable here. Dinner tonight cost just over $40.00 CAD for all four of us, and the portions were huge. Our time here in Prague passed much too quickly. We plan to return ...
... br> Luis took us down to a graffiti covered wall called the John Lennon wall, which apparently was where students of the 60's wrote protests against communism. Even now, the graffiti is constantly being overwritten. It was colourful and several images of John Lennon were visible. We added our own names in biro, lacking the pre-requisite aerosol or marker pen to do a better job.
... and a free coffee/tea machine in the lobby. Hooray. Prague is a medieval city. Streets in our part of Old Town are narrow and winding and change names every few blocks. Even with a map we got lost... but eventually found our way to the Museum of Communism, a quirky collection of narratives, posters, statues, collectibles from the Czech experiences during the Nazi regime and then the ...

In the centre, there is a large statue of Jan Hus, a local preacher who fought against Church corruption and inspired Czechs to fight for their freedom from the catholic church and German rule. Also in the square are the Tyn Church, St. Nicholas church and the Astrological Clock. Marek provided ...
