Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel, Prague
Travel Blogs from Prague
A beautiful city which - despite only staying there for a short time- I think I have experienced almost fully. The location of the hotel was fantastic, only a short walk from Wenceslas Square, and only a little longer to everywhere else I needed to go. Besides some sight seeing and shopping I also went on two tours: the ghost and legends tour, …
... said "Hello", and she stopped in her tracks like we were from Mars. "English menu?" she tentatively quizzed. "Yes please" I said, and she giggled like a school girl while fetching and handing us the English menus. She must not see a lot of tourists. We ordered as cheap as we could, and were shocked when Jess' savoury crepe was gigantic, and when my pasta was equally gigantic. We tried our best, but we could only eat half. One of the strange things about the ...
... The older bones began to be dug up and stored in the chapel, and they reckon that the chapel now contains the bones of up to 40,000 people. It's clearly the main attraction in the area and was pretty rammed with people. The church itself was pretty small but had massive skull and bone pyramids, bone chandeliers and pulpits. One of the most interesting parts was some little cabinets they had showing skulls of people who had been killed in battle hundreds of years ago: each one had ...
... out to turn the water off. It's flooded. Obviously the drain is blocked and water has flooded the bathroom and into the next room. This can't be happening! We storm downstairs only to have the reception guy not understand so he comes up and looks himself. Apparently it's too late to fix it and we can't change rooms so too bad until tomorrow. I am furious! We eventually go to bed to wake up reasonably early. We go downstairs to a girl at reception who rudely tells us we can't change ...
Me: dear all, hope you are all well?! Well yesterday we did some museums in Berlin. This included the most amazing memorial museums to the Jews that lost their lives to hitters regime. Both Adam and I came out in silence with no words to describe what we had just heard and read. After we went to a more light hearted museum abut what it was like living in East Berlin during its soviet right - very interactive and fun and probably not sop accurate ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel, Prague
I stayed here for 3 nights in August 04. The room was really nice and kept very clean and the bathrooms were excellent. All the staff were friendly particularly in the bar which had live music most nights. I emailed the hotel with a question before we arrived and they replied within 24 hours.
The cocktails in the bar were very good-a little pricey by prague standards, but about what you would expect from a 5*.
The breakfasts were amazing-omelettes made to order and champagne included.
We asked the concierge about getting a taxi to the airport at the end of our stay and she said it would be about 650kc. When we we were leaving the bellboy started to take our bags to the hotel car which cost 890kc-when we queryed this, they immediately said they would take us in the hotel car for the 650kc!
Perfect for a short break
Just back after 4 nights in August 2004.
Hotel situated between old and new towns and minutes walk from each. Very close to Wenceslas Square where the main public transport passes through so a great base to explore.
Hotel very smart and clean. Rooms well appointed and not overly fussy. Included breakfast good with adequate choices and pleasant staff. Hotel bar expensive by local standards although local standards are incredibly cheap if you avoid the tourist traps.
Hotel offers car service to and from Airport for 890 korunas which is about £20. Slightly expensive but saves a lot of hassle once landing and having to negotiate the bandits who drive taxis in Prague.
A perfect base to enjoy the beautiful city for a long weekend.
Wow! What a fantastic hotel!!!
We have just returned from a fabulous 4 day trip to Prague. We arrived at the airport, jumped straight into a taxi and were at the Radisson within 30 mins. We were greeted by the concierge (complete with top hat!!) who took our luggage to our room. The room was incredible - no wonder the hotel is one of the most luxurious in the world! We had bathrobes, slippers, 3 phones, TV, fax, stereo system, internet and air cond. Housekeeping were fantastic, they came in twice a day! In the evening they even prepared our room by closing the curtains, pulling the top cover back and fluffing up the pillows on the bed!! hee hee! Prague itself was lovely - lots of history. Its a lot of walking though so be prepared. We'd recommend going to the Old Town Square, there is so much atmosphere, lots of little cafes to sit and watch the world go by and the market stalls are lovely to wander around. We went on a tour bus which gave us a good general overview of Prague and we decided on our own trips after that. It was fab, the weather was very hot and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - would definitely go back!
Well located just off Wenceslas Square. Staff were generally attentative. Rooms in Art Deco style were well kept and well equipped for our comfortable 3 night stay in April 2004. Breakfast buffet was great value, great choice. The trendy Bar on the ground floor played live jazz music in the evening. The Rotondo Restuarant served delicious food at a reasonable price by Western Europe standards, extortionate by Eastern European Standards. but there are many bars and reasonably priced restaurants in the vicinity to try.
Our stay was only slightly spoilt at the end when I found several additional extras on my check out Bill which they failed to back up with my signatures. Very unusual but they did deduct these amounts from my Bill.
What a delight! Dream come true hotel...
This hotel is truly, truly wonderful! We stayed there for three nights in what was a freezing cold January of this year. We got a great deal (three nights for the price of two) and could not believe the luxury standard of the place! The art deco theme is tastefully and elegantly done and as for the breakfast (which was included in the price)...we couldn't believe our eyes! There was EVERY kind of food you could imagine and a great chef on hand to cook your own personalized omlette! Also, champagne for breakfast is included in the price - what a treat!
The Bar and Restaurant are simply superb and the live jazz music not to be missed.
The room was SO clean, lovely bathroom, great shower and a balcony on the room overlooking the street. FANTASTIC location - ten minute walk to Charles Bridge and five mins to the old town. We just loved it here so much and urge you to stay here!
Great Value, Great Hotel.
Me & the wife thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at this wonderful hotel. Service, room & ambience is excellent. The jazz quartet in the bar went down well with my half litre of "Porter" beer. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.
Quiet, not too big, well situated, friendly & good value...HOPE THE EURO WON'T CHANGE THIS.
Best hotel in Prague? If not then the best must be 6-star
I have only stayed in Prague once, so I cannot offer a comparison with other hotels that may be available but this I can say - the Alcron is superb.
During my stay I was fortunate enough to have an upgrade to their executive floor. I would imagine that there is not much difference in the rooms, bath robes and the like, but the real treat was breakfast in the Alcron restaraunt. I have never had Champagne and Lobster omlette for breakfast before. Some things can be habit forming!
If all the rooms in the hotel are of a similar standard to the one I had then I would have no hestitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. This truly is a 5* hotel, and being so close to Wenceslas square it is perfectly placed.
The lobby bar is cosy and intimate, and on both of the nights I was there a great jazz quartet were playing (well but not intrusively).
I cannot wait to go back to Prague, and when I do I shall stay at the Alcron again. No question about it.
Superb art deco hotel
The Radisson SAS is an excellent hotel just off Wenceslas square in the heart of the city.Ignore the exterior of the building,the inside is pure quality with marble staircase and art deco style fittings.Service is second to none from the minute i arrived and the buffet breakfast is very good as where the evening meals especially over the christmas period when the food was just wonderful.Highly recommended.
Very nice accomodations
Very Nice hotel, Room was clean and charming, if not a little small, compared to stateside hotels. Breakfast Buffet was excellent, service was very good. It's about 50 meters from Wenceslas Square proper.
Within walking distance to Charles Bridge, and Prague Castle.
This was a very nice hotel, in a great location. It was not inside "Old Prague", but it was very close, and right off the main square. Rooms were a bit small, but very luxurious and well appointed. Very quiet too. The restaurant had excellent food and service. I doubt any rooms here will have any great view, but it's a great place to stay.
