Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Novotel Praha Wenceslas Square Prague
A good base for viewing a lovely city
This proved to be a very good base for veiwing a lovely city. Our stay went very well from arrival at the airport to departure. A good taxi journey to the hotel, nice driver who gave us some tips on places to go and things to do. Hotel: Good first impression, looked newish, clean fresh reception. A very professional and efficient check in, shown to our room by a friendly member of staff. Room: Very good size for two. In room safe, no charge. Always handy for a city break. Breakfast was good, worth the effort. Hotel pool and gym, very good, if you've got any energy after walking about. Hotel reception we found to be very helpful, for information. The all day tram ticket was recommended and excellent value. Hotel location perfect for trams and metro. A great city, made enjoyable by a good choice of hotel. I would stay here again. The hotel taxi to the airport was also worthwhile and not overpriced.
We were very dissapointed to have booked one of the hotel taxis to collect us from the airport and then to be told one was not booked when I had e-mail confirmation from the hotel(!) Once that problem was sorted we checked into the hotel and found majority of the staff to be helpful but some reception staff unhelpful. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would recommend staying there for its great location - very near the metro/tram links and 5 mins from the City Centre. The hotel breakfast was a bit pricey but included in our hotel cost. Breakfast was very nice and there was plenty of food on offer. We really liked our stay in Prague and baring the problems are glad we chose this hotel.
Just got back from the "Novotel Praha City" having had an excellent time.
The hotel is typical of a large chain with everything clean and working. Bonuses over other hotels include the small gym, pool and jacuzzi for relaxing at the end of the day. The selection of foods at breakfast is excellent with something for nearly all tastes and you can have as much as you like to keep you going for the hard days walking around the city ahead.
The hotel is ideally located just 100m from the I.P.Pavlova metro station and about 10 mins walk to Wencelas Square. You can get a taxi directly from the airport but I'd recommend the public transport (Bus no.119 then metro) it's really easy, clean and a lot cheaper.
If you need a bite to eat try Banditos (Tex-Mex) directly opposite the entrance. It's reasonably priced and I guarantee you will not be hungry when you leave and the staff are really friendly.
the hotel is 100 metres from 1.p.pavlova metro station 10 mins walk to main square and 15 mins on tram 23 or 22 to the castle.some very good places to eat localy, banditos and the local own brew bar are worth a visit. hotel was very good with a fantastic choice for breakfast.the air conditioning in rooms a plus.
Not that sublime thank you
I believe that all previous reviews have enough info to make a balanced decision but, I believe the phrase "sublime area" is blatantly untrue. I have no comment to make about the rooms/service/cost etc. The hotel is situated 4km or five metro stations from Wenceslas Square (it is built over the "Zelivskeho" station). It is located on a crossroads with bus and tramlines in all directions. It borders a small international bus terminus and two cemetaries. You would have to walk 500 metres to get to the first shop that wasn't selling flowers. It is a hotel with worldwide Novotel standards (except you get bigger rooms i.e. it was not built originally as a Novotel) and that is not in question. The hotel has good public transport connections but, the area is most definitely not "sublime".
Excellent, no bad comments. We loved it.
We have just come back from 4 lovely days in Prague staying at the Novotel Praha City. We found the hotel was great, queit, clean, maid daily, comfortable, staff friendly and helpful, breakfast lovely, lots to choose from egg, bacon, sausages, continental cheese, ham etc. Fruit, cereal, toast too much to list but plenty enough to fill you up for a long day sightseeing. Excellent pool, sauna and jacuzi to relax in after a hard day, just before an enjoyable night ahead. A good location on a quiet side street, no noise so a good night sleep!! But with the metro and tram stops just around the corner. A few bars nearby, we found an excellent one over the road from the hotel, Barritos. Lovely food, beer and service at its best. Prague is a wonderful place to visit, lots to see and do. A word of advice, flat shoes is a must to survive the lovely cobbled streets, and of course all the walking.
Great stay at the novotel
The hotel was clean and not far at all from Wenclas Square. We had a lovely big room with double bed and sofa and the toilet was separate to bathroom. Breakfasts were good lots of choice continental and hot breakfast. Lovely gym, jacuzzi and sauna which was free and we used.
We had a great stay there, staff not over friendly but we came to realise that, that was the Czechs in general, would recommend.
Nice but impersonal hotel
This is a chain hotel, so a little impersonal, but the room was quiet and big, the service was good, the breakfast was very good (a lot of things, ham, eggs, cakes, yogourth....).
The hotel is placed very near a Metro station an a lot of trams also stop near the hotel. You are only 10 minutes walking from the Wenceslao and there are some places near to take the dinner.
The hotel has also a interior swiming pool that itīs wonderful after a day walking by the city.
Pleasant ,modern, clean & comfortable.
This is the sort of hotel the guidebooks might typically describe as soulless and lacking in character, but, on the other hand, the air conditioning & elevators work, there's a swimming pool & sauna, and it is generally pleasant, modern, clean and comfortable. Excellent buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Location OK, 8/10 minute walk to Wenceslaus Square, at least 15 minutes to Old Town but only 2 minutes away from metro/tram stop & plenty of taxis available at hotel entrance.
This hotel is on a quiet side street in old town and just a few mins. walk to all the historical sites. It is extremely clean, has a garage, pool, fitness room and sauna and I found to be an excellent stay in this city. It is family friendly and the breakfast buffet was huge.

... also included the Old Royal Palace, the Basilica and Convent of St. George (the burial place of Czech royalty) and the Golden Lane that housed Castle servants and others until WW II. Franz Kafka even lived at #22 for a short time. Jack enjoyed touring the armoury and torture chamber. Leaving the castle, we marched down the many steps of the hill back to our Apt., picking up groceries along the way. Dinner was at a local restaurant serving local food-nothing remarkable. Day 2 began ...
I got up this morning at 6.15am – an early start. I showered, dressed and uploaded pictures to Facebook. Internet was good here. I then went down to breakfast, ate and then went back to
the room. I got ready for the day and then meet up at the meeting point. We walked with the tour manager to the metro station, caught the metro into the city, then walked from the metro station, past the old town square to a bike shop to begin our bike tour.
... Unfortunately, it was pretty underwhelming in my opinion. There were LOTS of people, but the venues were not anything special. Our last stop was at a 5 floor club (each floor with different type of music) that included an ice bar. The ice bar isn't as cool as the pictures online (as any traveler should know). We did meet a couple cool people. They were engineering students from Norway!
I think I am ready to call it a night and sleep in tomorrow. Ciao!

... in attendance, this year they said there were 9,000. It has been happening for the last 10 years, very successful . Lots of young people, and so appreciative and attentive. Had a giant screen so you could see the players, the stage was giant and about 40 symphony members. We were about 40 feet away, the sound was awesome. Love outdoor concerts!!!
Took the metro home, not a problem. Awesome night.

We got a late start and decided that since half of the day was over we should just do something small. Connor is not big on zoos, but Ethan and I like them, so that was what we did.
We had a hard time getting metro tickets! we looked all over the place and asked several people, but it's hard here. The language it so foreign, it's hard to decipher anything written!! 'Round and Round we went and finally about to give up and head ...
