Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel, Prague
Travel Blogs from Prague
were staying off the museum circuit this trip.....to many coins and books and nothing in English.....but we DID at least take a look at the grand national museum at the top of wenceles square.
Wenches square isn't so much a square as a boulevard in the middle os the road....but impressive things have happened there from medieval marketplace to …
Did I say great location? Awesome. 5 min walk to the old square. The most famous site there being the astronomical clock. It's really gorgeous- from ~1490. the courtyard was packed with all the people and tour groups awaiting THE strike Shan allnthe action would happen. On the hour a couple little doors creak open as the bell rings and wooden …
... br> I think the next part was my favourite. The views across the river are great, and I loved the weirs, the locks, the boats and so on. We walked along the west bank and there weren't too many people about. We stopped at the Museum Kampa to read the story of "Winton's Trains".
From google - "Winton“s team realised the situation was so desperate, they decided to
falsify the visas, thus increasing the danger. In spite of all this, eight ...
How is defined Home? Is it the place where you were born, where you currently live or the one where you heart is? Well, it might be all in one.
Over the past couple of months (slowly getting into years), I have lived at a few places, all as different as possible from each other.
After a tearful leave from Prague last year - or the year before already? - (not much, the tears came later, when facing the pure reality of being away from home), I found myself ...
It's our last day in Prague, so we decided to do the Prague free tour since we don't really know too much about the city. They have quite an interesting and long history with so many governments. They finally became the Czech Republic in 1993. We saw the hourly performance of the astronomical clock, which would have been the biggest disappointment if you were expecting some grand show. The astronomical clock became a huge tourist ...

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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
