Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mucha Prague
Bring your ear plugs!
Noise is definitely the big down side with this hotel. Building works next to the hotel provided a 'banging' wake up call and the street noise from the front of the hotel was quite remarkable considering it was a fairly quiet street!!
Location wise it was a good 15 min walk to the centre of the old town but it was right next door to the underground station.
The hotel itself was nice. The room was a good size and well equipped with nice bathroom. The buffet breakfast was more than adequate with a good (and interesting!) choice. I had read that the bar offered a huge range of cocktails ... but it didn't! As hotel mini bars go, the prices were fairly reasonable (although cheaper to use the supermarket next door!!).
Staff in the main were friendly although it did take some time to get used to the abrasive Czech nature.
We were allocated this hotel as part of an 'Expedia' package and for our purposes we were quite happy with it.
My partner and I stayed here from 12th to 16th July. After a personal recommendation and reading several favourable reviews we were disappointed with the hotel and it's location . At the time work was being carried out in the adjacent building and the noise was terrible from 7.30am onwards . The hotel was full and although the receptionist was apologetic he could not move us . As for the rooms-well ours was dark and dingy . The furniture was more old than antique and frankly a refurb would have been in order . The area is also not the best-I would definitely visit Prague again as it is beautiful , but would stay more centrally next time .
In summary - a gorgeous city , but generally hotels are expensive for what you get .
Nice hotel, noisy location
The hotel itself is lovely, though there is no air conditioning so the room can be warm, especially at night
The hotel is located in an area near a metro station, and you can easily hear the trains which seem to run all night... also, the area around the hotel is quite run down, half demolished buildings, and a few vagrants.
Would definitely recommend
Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early July. The staff was very helpful and nice, and the Internet in the lobby convenient and a great addition! My single room was furnished with antiques AND had a GREAT bathtub, which was fantastic after a day of walking! I took the bus then metro to the hotel which was fine but next time would take a taxi which is not too expensive (was quoted 700 KR at airport) to avoid the hassle. The hotel location was great, very close to Florenc metro, but not a lot of restaurants nearby. The Bohemia Bagel in old town square was good and had a fantastic meal at Kampa Park across the river.
Great place to stay
The Hotel Mucha (pronounced Hotel Mooka) is a lovely hotel with big well furnished rooms. Small and friendly with helpful staff. Breakfast is substantial and served between 7 - 11am which is great for early and late risers. There is a very reasonable restaurant at the hotel although we did not eat there. Prague is a wonderful city very interesting and exciting although don't go into the old town square late at night if you want to avoid stag and hen parties. The hotel is a good 15 min walk from the centre, this is the only draw back. Recommend Hotel U Prince in opposite the astronomical clock for a good night out with excellent food and entertainment, and Legends sports bar if just cant miss the sport back home.
Loved the Mucha
My wife & I just returned from Eastern Europe and we stayed at the Hotel Mucha in Prague. The rooms are large and quiet. The staff is very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed making it our home base in Prague. It is conveniently located about 100 meters from the Florenc metro station which makes touring Prague easy. Free internet service in the lobby made for easy e-mailing of friends and researching of sites. There is a supermarket next to the metro so you can get supplies and goodies to munch on. Make sure you go the Mucha Museum and the History of Communism Museum along with your touring of this beautiful city.
The hotel was very easy to get to using the number 119 bus from the airport and then the metro system to the Florenc metro station. We bought a 12Kr ticket for each of us and then a 6Kr ticket for the bag on the bus which takes you to the end of the green metro line. You then buy another 12Kr per person to get you from the Devijcka metro station to Florenc changing at Mustek metro station. When you leave the train at Florenc turn right and take the stairs at the end of the platform.
The hotel is 100m from the exit on the same side of the road.
The hotel was very welcoming, we were given a deluxe room even though we had not paid for one. The room had lovely antique furniture. The hotel had a reasonably priced italian restaurant and bar next to the reception area. Breakfast was buffet style and happily fills you up for a days excursions.
Due to the hotel being so near the metro station all of Prague is easily accessible and a 15min walk takes you to Wenceslas Square. There are loads of good restaurants in the Old Town Square area which is 5mins from Namestki Republiki metro station. The castle area again can be reached by the metro and takes about 10mins on the metro.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone and will be staying there again.
Loved the Mucha
My boyfriend and I just returned from a romantic vacation in Prague.
The Hotel Mucha was a perfect place to stay -- the rooms were very clean, fairly large and comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly, accommdating and spoke excellent english. The hotel restaurant served good Italian fare at riducously reasonable prices.
We recommend the Mucha!
We returned last night from three wonderful, chilly days in Prague.
It's a wonderful city with much to see, do (and eat! dumplings!!).
The modestly priced Hotel Mucha makes an excellent centre for a short break. Conveniently situated nearby is the Florenc metro and tram station. We walked a lot on day one, then used the trams all of the time, particularly as our 2 year old son thought they were wonderful (as did we... heated seats!).
All of the mainly young staff at the Hotel Mucha were extremely helpful and friendly (in line with most other Czechs who seem v courteous and polite). Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast time offered plenty of choice. Our son even found Teketubbskies (!) on TV.
The whole hotel has been renovated since the floods of Aug 2002, and is to be recommended. We'd definitely return.
A short walk towards Republic Square is the Imperial Cafe which is always busy, beautfully designed, and offers well priced hearty food.
We'd also recommend catching the No8 tram from outside the hotel across the river and up to the Castle. Then enjoy meandering back via St Vitus Cathedral, the Royal Palace, Golden Lanes etc, into the Little Quarter, across the fantastic Charles Bridge, over to Old Town Square and back towards the hotel.
If you go in January, the city is beautiful but very cold. Wrap up as we did and you won't regret it. Enjoy Prague and Enjoy Hotel Mucha.

I thought I'd be the first to write a review for the Mucha - it would have really helped us to know some of the following before our visit last weekend! Firstly, how to get there. The guidebooks and maps we had (Lonely Planet) were a bit misleading - it's a really easy place to find if you know what to do. Your options are either to get a taxi (approx £15 - 650 Czech Crowns) or to get the bus and tube like we did (a mere 30p per person - 12 Crowns!) You need to take the no 100 bus from outside the main airport terminal - stay on it until you get told to get off at the bus station (the announcements are a bit confusing and we nearly got off in the middle of nowhere by accident!) The tube terminal is right by the bus stop - take the yellow line tube until Florenc station (Line B) - this costs another 12 crowns per person. From the main exit of Florenc station turn right and the Mucha is approx 100m down the road. About the hotel - it's in a good location in a quietish street, only 15 mins walk from the centre of Prague although a small part of the walk is through a mildly dodgy area. We never felt unsafe although you do feel to stand out as a tourist. Our room was lovely, we got a deluxe room although we hadn't paid for this - really big with gorgeous antique furniture. Bathroom was lovely and clean with a good shower. The only downside to the hotel was breakfast - not the greatest in selection or quality. I would definitely stay at this hotel again though -and highly recommend Prague at Xmas - it's stunning. Please feel free to mail me if you have any questions..

Stayed at Hotel Mucha a lovely old hotel with breakfast room downstairs in what would have been the cellars - amazing buffet breakfast. Last night walked into the city centre just 5 mins away Bought a raincoat in C & A. Join the group today! A bit apprehensive about sharing a room. Then we are off to Rathen for 3 nights. Trying to get my head …
... top of the clock tower in Old Town Square. STUNNING views overlooking Prague. I've never seen anything like it. Following was an hour "ghost and legend" tour of the old town. Supposedly the city is one of the most haunted in the world. The tour was ok - a lot of repeat from the first tour we took yesterday. The coolest part was being able to go underground where Prague was first started in the medieval era (13th century). Super creepy. Being in Europe for the World Cup final game ...
... as dysfunctional as NZ.
We saw the monastary where the monks with light brown robes live - its from them we get the name Capichino for our coffee - and the monastary where the most expensive beer in Prague is brewed.
Up by Prague Castle is where the Gestapo and later the StB of the communist government had their prison. When the Germans left at the end of WW2 the Russians took over the Communist Era began but many of the practices did not stop. Some ...
... I'm glad I left early or I would have been late and gasping for breath the entire lesson. For pictures, go to my other blog. The boys in the class got to live in the hotel right next to the school, which didn't seem fair even if they had to climb 4 flights of stairs every day. At least they were inside when it rained.
Old Town Prague is known as the city of spires, but from what I saw when I looked over the city from the Castle, it didn't ...
... the car and off towards some woods to have a walk around in nature. It started snowing more as we were driving along and we were all glad it wasn’t us driving as the snow got heavier and heavier and the roads started to get a bit slippery. The snow built up really fast and we even had ice forming on the windscreen. Ivana did an excellent job of keeping us safe on the roads while we four “kids” happily munched through the delicious ...
