Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Pav Prague
Un gradevole albergo con ubicazione perfetta
Sono andato a Prague per 4 giorni ed ho alloggiato al Pav Hotel. L'ubicazione centrale è eccellente, a pochi passi da tutti i luoghi d'interesse, la Piazza della Città Vecchia, il Ponte Carlo, ecc. L'albergo offre un ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo, ed è vicino alle fermate della metropolitana e del tram, e alla Città Vecchia. Le camere ed il bagno erano spaziosi, e la pressione dell'acqua calda nel bagno era buona. La prima colazione offriva una varietà di cibi caldi e freddi. C'è una connessione Internet gratuita nella sala d'ingresso.
Best and worst location
The rooms and fittings are modern and clean - don't try adjusting the lights on stalks over the bed, though, they will burn your fingers if you touch them.
The staff do what they are supposed to - just. Don't look for anyone to go out of their way to help you, and beware being ripped off for water by the tall dark hulking porter who looks as though his name should be Igor. If you need drinks or nibbles, safer to go to the Vietnamese shop just up the street.
The breakfast is OK - but don't go anywhere near anything that looks like it was provided for English-speaking guests, e.g. the odd sausages. Stick to the stuff they know about, the cheese and bread and so on, and you should be fine.
The location is great for exploring Prague, walking distance to all the main Old Town and New Town attractions - but it's probably the worst possible for actually getting any sleep at night during summer. No air conditioning means you have to have the windows open, so you get drunken yelling from the street from the three nearest bars from midnight all the way through to 4 a.m., and the acoustics are perfect for making it sound like they are in the room with you. Bring earplugs if you want to sleep at all in a street-facing room. The hotel is proud of being next to U Fleku - trust me, this is not an advantage.
Value for money - could be worse, but watch out for their exchange rate if they quote you in euro.
And thanks, Pav, for setting a checkout time of 10 a.m. (never seen that anywhere else) but telling us we could leave packed suitcases in the room, then changing your mind and shifting everything to your luggage store then asking us to go and get it ourselves (second floor, different block). once we had discovered it was no longer in the room Thanks a lot.
Con un'ottima ubicazione e recentemente ristrutturato, quest'albergo offre tutto ciò di cui avete bisogno per un soggiorno a Prague. È situato a pochi passi da buoni ristoranti, in una strada tranquilla, ed il personale è molto accogliente ed estremamente disponibile. L'arredamento è moderno con soffitti alti e splendidi bagni. È sempre molto pulito ed offre una buona prima colazione all'inizio d'una giornata d'escursioni a piedi. I due ascensori di vetro hanno divertito i bambini per un'eternità.
Good Experience, Location
While the location was great - quiet area with easy walks to all major sites - rooms were not all that comfortable. The hotel said they had air-conditioning, but when we got there, we found out only 1 floor actually had a/c. The beds were also very hard and the shower overflowed. However, my friend and I did have a pleasant enough time and enjoyed the staff and free internet access and basic buffett breakfast. Do not take the staff recommendation of Gray Line tours (for which they get a cut). Apparently, SIS tours are known to be the best day trip tours. Also, the hotel does NOT provide parking (we found this out from fellow travellers who were told it was provided, and wound up having to pay $30/day to park elsewhere).
Have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hotel-Pav. What a lovely place, very clean and modern. The buffet breakfast was great (well the 2 mornings we actually got up in time to eat it.) Ideally situated for walks along the river and near the trams. Staff were friendly and spoke very good english(made me feel very embarassed in a way that we english are soo lazy that we don't learn some of the lingo before we go). Simona, who worked in the bar/coffee shop was especially friendly, really cheered us up when it began raining and made us laugh. The only down side to the hotel was there were no drink making facilities in the rooms, but with a bar maid like Simona this was a very small downside, tea with the husband or tea with a smile......???? One of the reasons I chose this hotel is its situation, right next door to the Uflecku bar. A must for all visitors to Prague.
We stayed at the Pav Hotel last week for three nights. The hotel is excellent, it is very clean and comfortable. The rooms are an excellent size with lots of space and very comfortable. The only thing they lack is tea and coffee making facilities. Staff at the hotel are polite and most are friendly. The hotel is well situated for seeing the sights, although you must be prepared for lots of walking, Prague being a walking city
Perfect location, very nice hotel
Travelled to Prague for 4 days and stayed at the Pav Hotel.
Great central location, walking distance of everything, old town square, Charles Bridge etc. Very good value. Close to metro, trams and old town square. Big rooms and bathroom with good hot water pressure. Good hot and cold breakfast variety. Free internet in lobby.
Great location and newly refurbished, the hotel provides everything you need for a stay in Prague. It is a few minutes walk from good restaurants, on a quiet street and has very friendly staff who are keen to help out. The hotel has modern decor with high ceilings and great bathrooms, is kept very clean and gives a good breakfast before a day out on foot. The two glass lifts kept the children happy for ages.
A new superb hotel in Prague
Have recently stayed at the Pav hotel and what a hotel! Despite calling itself a 3 stars - tourist class, its interiors are well above the standard of this category of hotels in Prague. We were smoothly checked in by a smiling receptionist Radka and arrived at our room - a large double bedded corner room with large windows and comfortable furnishings. Hotel interiors are very light, brand new decorated in a very contemporary design. We loved the lobby bar, where we used to have drink after long walk across the city. The hotel location is fabulous as one just needs minutes to walk to main attractions of Prague. Breakfasts were great every morning. We really enjoyed our stay and do firmly recommend this hotel.

What did I know about the Czech Republic before visiting Prague: I knew that Kafka was Czech, and he created some weird novels. I also used to watch a movie 'Alice' by Jan Svankmajer when I was young, a Czech man who made morbid and bizarre films. Czech is also central European and home of Bohemia, an exotic and wonderful era of alcohol, spiritual enlightenment and fascinating design. I'd also heard that the Czech were famous for their mannequins ...
... window. We pulled over at the first service station to buy one but they didn't have them so we just carried on regardless with the comment, 'If we get stopped we will just plead ignorance'. Field, forests and farm houses flew by and before we knew it we were in the outskirts of Prague. Here the sky turned an ominous black and soon the most torrential appocoliptic rain storm started. The roads turned into rivers and the wipers couldn't clear the water quick ...

I had the blog in mind and was about to film it but decided I'd rather just watch and experience the show rather than observe it through a camera lens. I'll bet it's already on YouTube somewhere...check it out! This morning started off exceptionally wonderfully because we went from ...

(A simple google search can bring up his work if you are interested in seeing it.) We also attended a black light show based on Alice in Wonderland. Holy cow was that a very strange experience. They use black curtains and only black lighting to create very surreal scenes. The show only loosely followed the familiar ...

The Orloj suffered heavy damage on May 7 and especially May 8, 1945, during the Prague Uprising, when Germans directed incendiary fire from several armored vehicles and an anti-aircraft gun to the south-west side of the Old Town Square in an effort to silence the provocative broadcasting initiated by the National Committee on May 5. The hall and nearby buildings burned along with the wooden sculptures on ...
