Travel Blogs from Prague
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 …
PS - Photos later -- I'm struggling with text, never mind photos.
Day 2 was much better. We started off with a free tour that left from the tourist information office in Old Town Square (a place we actually knew) that Kathleen knew about. But, as it turns out, dozens of tours, free and not, leave from this site daily.
We hooked …
The story of how I came to Prague is a pretty easy one. I was itching for an adventure, and Prague was the cheapest destination on The List, which of course is the list that everyone has of places he or she wants to go. I looked into South Africa, Australia, and Rio de Janiero, but Prague was the winner at $800 per person. Plus, my lifelong friend …
Day four, unfortunately, brings us to our last day in Prague and Katies birthday -- happy birthday, Katie!
At this point, we felt comfortable in the city. Hotel Mucha -- although slightly rough around the edges felt homey. The streets and squares felt familiar. We could stride from the hotel to Old Town without peering at the map. Isnt …
First, thank you all for reading -- you don have to if you cant... these are long... Im sorry. Youd think as a writer I could be brief, but I just cant!
Dont worry, I promise this blog will be shorter because although now I am in Vienna and while the hostelś internet is considerably better, it costs money.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mucha Prague
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!!
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.
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 returned last night from three wonderful, chilly days in Prague.
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 Â£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..
