Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Paris Prague
I recently spent one night at the Pariz and, while the building itself is breathtaking, the majority of the hotel does not compare. The common areas are beautifully decorated and the guest rooms also have their charm. However, as in most older hotels, the rooms and bathrooms are tiny -- difficult to navigate. This is definitely a hotel for those who prize old world charm over modern amenities. But all others shouldn't miss stopping for a drink/meal and a photo.
Great location, hotel not as great
Great location near all the sights. Room is small and overpriced. Very clean and nice breakfast is included. Bathroom clean but uses a goofy shower curtain set up I have encountered in Europe which floods the bathroom each time you take a shower.
All in all, the location makes up for the lack of luxury in the room.
Second Visit to Hotel Pariz
I have just returned from my second trip to Prague, beginning of May.2004. We could only stay at Hotel Pariz for one night, as it was fully booked. We spent four nights there in November 2002, and thought it was wonderful.This time I was shocked to see the changes to the lobby! Leather tub chairs do not suit an Art Nouveau style hotel, nor does the Tuscan style mosaic floor. I believe the Sarah Bernhardt Restuarant will also be re-furbished, PLEASE do this sympathetically, use a different interior designer!Otherwise, the hotel remains beautiful, with excellent service.
Stayed at the Pariz last year. It is very well located for most of the tourist attractions. It is a beautiful old hotel. Our room was spacious with a great view. The only drawback was the staff who are nowhere near the standard you would expect from a 5 star hotel in other major cities. We will visit Prague again but we will try other hotels.
The Hotel Pariz is a splendid hotel situated in a great location. On arrival we were given an upgrade to a Junior Suite, the room was spacious and well equipped with fixtures and fittings worthy of its 5* status. All major sights, museums, galleries, theatres and shops are just a short and generally pleasent walk away. There is a good choice of cafes and restaurants in the local vacinity, although wine is a touch pricey but after tasting the delights of the Sarah Bernhardt Restaurant you may not venture anywhere else. Throughout the Hotel Pariz elements of Art Nouveau add to the luxury by adding a sense of pomp and ostentation. Our stay in Prague was made more relaxing and pleasurable by the Hotel Pariz exceeding our expectations.
This hotel is one of the few attractive-looking hotels in Prague, which blends into the surroundings rather than looking like a concrete eye-sore. Our room was excellent, large and with a lovely bathroom with heated floor. The location is also excellent, only a few minutes' walk to the centre of the old town. The only complaint is with the staff.
They left a note under our door by mistake (it was meant for another room) which asked us to call a number urgently. When we did this, we realised that the message was not for us. However, the hotel insisted on charging us for the call, and when I tried to explain that it was the hotel's mistake that we made the call, they suddenly developed an inability to speak English. A minor point, but it left us less impressed with the hotel than we would otherwise have been.
Exquisite hotel, wonderful visit
We just returned from 3 days at the Hotel Pariz (Feb. 12-15 2004). I am pleased to report that the renovations are complete - in fact we were there for the re-opening of the Cafe de Paris. The hotel was everything we hoped for and more- the internet photos do not do it justice. The whole hotel is newly renovated and sparkling. We had a huge room (Junior Suite), which was elegantly decorated and furnished, with marble double vanity in the bathroom etc. The Sarah Bernhardt Restaurant is a very beautiful art nouveau room. The walls are decorated with green and gold mosaics as well as mahogany panels inlaid with leafy patterns in darker woods and mother of pearl. There are also original tables and light fixtures. We enjoyed two really excellent dinners here, as well as breakfast which was included in our package price. The staff at the hotel were all extremely helpful and pleasant.
The location is excellent, across the street from the Art Nouveau Municipal House, beside a Metro station, and less than five minutes walk to the Old Town Square. The hotel is located on a cul-de-sac so there was no street noise.
The Hotel Pariz deserves every one of its five stars. It is gorgeous.
If you have the opportunity to stay there - do so!
Until the refurb is finished, the only thing it has is location
We have just returned from a long weekend. Unfortunately the Hotel Pariz is currently nowhere near 5 star standard. It is undergoing major refurbishment works so that the entrance/lobby/ reception/staircase and famous Café Paris are all closed. They have crammed everything into what would otherwise be the smart Sarah Bernard restaurant area. The rooms are not "deluxe"; some do not even have a bathroom. We saw three rooms and they were nothing like the ones advertised. The service was not 5*. Although the hotel is discounting its rates, these seem comparable with other 5 star hotels in Prague which have much more to offer. The only facilities are a very expensive Finnish sauna/massage centre. The location is excellent.
Great historical hotel in the center of Prague
We stayed 5 nights in the hotel (November 2003). The Hotel Pariz is magnificent and we love it's location, service and the daily breakfast at the Sarah Bernhart Restaurant (the breakfast was included in the room price). Our room was not that spacious but it was clean and comfortable. The Reception/Concierge staff (specifically a lovely lady named Zuzka) was excellent. The hotel's concierge arranged our tours to Kutna Hora, Terezin & Auschwitz (in Poland) with no problems. My husband & I had a great time on this trip and I definitely will recommend a stay in this art noveu hotel.
Gorgeous hotel, good location, possibly better values elsewhere
We stayed here for a couple of nights in November 2001, and had mixed feelings about the overall value (we consider ourselves budget to moderate travelers and are in our late 30s). Pro's - the location was great, close to the major attractions; and this was one of the most gorgeous hotels I've ever seen, from the lobby to the cafe to the sweeping stairways to the rooms. It felt like a business hotel (e.g., Wall Street Journal Europe in the lobby etc.) Con's - the price was high for what we got; our room was small and the price didn't include breakfast. Overall, we would probably stay elsewhere given our more modest budget, and come here to the cafe for a drink or food; but if you have money to spend on this gorgeous hotel, the location and furnishings are great!

... that what happened in Poland is a significant part of this world's history. One that should be acknowledged. I was actually told by my Czech teacher that her father was sent to Auschwitz during WWII, how crazy is that?

We only saw a small portion of it but it was still stunningly beautiful. That evening all of us went out for dinner at a place called Cafe Louve. It did traditional Czech food. It looked really posh but the prices were really reasonable. The food was just amazing! We all loved our meals ...
