BEST WESTERN Hotel Meteor Plaza
Travel Blogs from Prague
Hey Everyone! We have had a wonderful time in Prague. The tall spires and contrasts of so many different styles of architecture really makes you feel like you are in the location of a fairytale! This has been one of the most 'touristy' spots that we have been to so far. The streets and the attractions have been crammed full of people and a babble …
... on the lower deck with a live jazz band playing throughout. The dinner was buffet style and featured traditional Czech dishes - like bread dumplings and boiled potatoes - but also had more universal dishes like baked chicken, fish and salad. It was all really good food, though the Europeans just really don't get the concept of buffet. It was very obvious who the Americans on board were once time for the 2nd trip came around, haha.
Once the boat left the dock, we ...
... days there then the big train journey I'm actually looking forward to, A scenic train ride that twists and winds through the alps to Venice. Perfection.
It's quite difficult at first constantly converting everything but it's all pretty standard prices. water is 25, beer in a good club/bar is 35, and I had a full italian made pizza for lunch for 150. So 78p, £1.10 and £4.68 respectively…and this is all in the centre of Prague ...
... the process of looking for a ‘bus no’
I wore my cap for the night, hope it will be warmer than last night, still we are heading to warmer climes
We are now in Prague, but as I said earlier, we never got to see much of Europe, mostly motorway, but it’s a day out in the city tomorrow
For some reason, I cant reply to comments, thanks and I can only apologiise
... and this ghetto area, Josefov, is the legacy that was left. After the war, of the 118,231 jews in the Czech Republic, less than 15,000 survived. The Jewish quarter is in a high end part of town now, complete with Prada and Tag stores. The ghetto was torn down in the early 1900's and redone in the Art Nouveau style, one of the best representations I have seen in Europe so far. Our 480Kn ticket per adult bought ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN Hotel Meteor Plaza Prague
Fantastic location, air con, good wifi + computer access. Tidy, clean and brilliant breakfast. Spacious rooms and a cheap wine and cocktail bar located on ground floor. Loved our stay here.

It was many years ago but we found the hotel very clean, staff very helpful, and the neighborhood quiet inspite of the fact that it was in the middle of town.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Meteor Plaza Prague
Below Expected Standards
Good location, nice outside appearence. Rooms (243 & 244) rather small and had a let down look. Room 243 had an unpleasant moisture smell/odor throughout our 4 days stay. Breakfast was good. Hotel garage-parking limited & expenseive. No room service. Reception staff helpful but porter service uninterested & indifferent. All in all, there are far better hotels in the vicinity.
I can't imagine how someone could give this place a positive review unless, of course, they had enjoyed too much absinthe. I can only presume that this hotel has rooms of vastly different quality but that still does not account for the difference of opinion on the buffet breakfast.
Whoever wrote "WARNING - AVOID AT ALL COSTS" and "Small Dirty Rooms - Stay At Your Peril" must have visited a different BW Meteor Plaza, Prague as their comments do not apply to our experience and yes, we do know what to expect from a 4 star hotel.
I must say that I have a difference of opinion to some of the other users.We have just stayed at this hotel as a party of 12 for a 30th birthday celebration and found the staff most helpful and friendly, they did everything and extra that was asked of them, including the set up of tables after breakfast which is a busy time where we had champagne for breakfast as a surprise. As for the breakfast the choice was overwhelming and in abundance.The rooms although basic, (if you requested tea and coffee in your room you could collect it from reception or have it delivered to your room for 100Kc) were very clean and tidy with no musty smells or noise from other guests.The location is excellent as well, and I agree that the mini bar is outstanding value. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay made better by the warm and friendly staff, we would not hesitate in returning.
Good location, nice people
I stayed at Meteor Plaza for 3 days and I was surprised with so helpful staff there. I had a bad accident with my teeth and I need find some good doctor. Receptionist managed everything in very short time. Location of hotel is excellent, especially for those, who came to Prague to visit all sightseeing - and also is wonderful for shopping :-).
I will definitely come back to this hotel.
Stayed at this hotel with my wife during the month of July 04. We encountered the hotel very clean, reasonably well appointed, with abundant breakfast. Our room was well sized, its furnishings were modern and well kept. Staff behaviour was very attentive and friendly. There is a lovely lobby bar next to the reception area. I am definitely recommending it.
SLIGHTLY ABOVE AVERAGE
I just returned from prague and stayed in room 104 at the meteor plaza. The past two reviews are not accurate. Having traveled all over the world, the meteor plaza is just slightly above average. The good: 1.) Excellent location 2.) Clean rooms and good room service. 3.) Good breakfast. The Bad:1.) No air conditioning in some rooms including room 104. 2.) Small shower stall. Overall I encountered no musty smellls or dirty rooms. Believe me I have stayed at worse. The metor plaza is not the best, but by far it is not the worst. I would stay here again.
Small, dirty rooms -- stay at your own peril
This hotel was awful. My friend and I stayed there on the recommendation of our travel agent. The room was dirty (not sure that it had ever dusted), and so tiny that lying in our twin beds, which were pressed up against the walls, we could touch each others and there was only room for the beds in the room. It may be centerally located but that is the only good thing that I can say about this place.
Just, 26th March 2004, returned from the Meteor Plaza, party of four middle aged and senior, one with slight mobility problems, and found the Hotel to be of a pretty good standard.One or two minor points: -Front desk staff are reasonably good and helpful despite a cold appearance, services offered are reasonable and the staff are getting to grips with the service industry.The Hotel prices are also reasonable, the cellar bar appears to be a fairly quiet for a nightcap, closes at midnight, however you can raid the mini bar with out having to consider a second mortgage.Breakfast is a little bit of a disorganized affair, it seems to take the staff by surprise when the guests all turn up at breakfast time. During busy periods, the crockery seems to run out, and the replenishment of the breakfast items appears to go a little awry. The toast making facilities leave plenty of scope for improvement, overall however it becomes part of the routine, and you soon get into their swing of things.Residents are entitled to a 10% discount in the hotel bars and restaurants, but there seems a reluctance to deduct it with out having to insist, even when you have charged to the room.The location for our trip was excellent, 5 minutes from the Powder Tower \ Municipal Buildings, 15 minutes Wenceslas Square \ Old Town Square, 25 minutes Opera House, 30 minutes from the Jewish Quarter, all times were on foot with someone with limited mobility, the Hotel really is within easy reach of the majority of attractions.There are Restaurants around also within easy reach ranging from the intimate to the stylish, all are good value, and affordable. We found we could confidently dine with out even having to think of looking the prices on the menu.All in all I have no qualms about recommending this place for a stay, it is on a quieter side of central, but close enough to easily reach the interests. Major ?Must Do? interests are to the left as you exit the Hotel, but there is an equally interesting world to the right when you exit, its worth a nosey few moments just to look and explore.The country will adopt the Euro soon, and I think that the prices may well rise, but it will still probably be very reasonable by comparison to the UK.
Huge room, great location
Did not know what to expect from this hotel but we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was huge (compared to other so-called three-stars hotels we've stayed in) and contained a large bed, seperate bathroom suite and piano! Breakfast was nothing to write home about but, as a light snack to start the day, it was fine. Spa suite was impressive and was available for private hire for guests (not sure how private it was though). Great location, with all attractions nearby - for price, location and facilities this hotel was perfect.
