... river for 2 nights. It was in a beautiful spot but we were lucky we had ear plugs as there were a few parties happening nearby. We spent the day exploring the Castle area. We were tired of walking so decided to have a leisurely lunch at Kampa Park which is one of the best restaurants in Prague. We feasted on duck and chicken with the highlight of the meal ...

    Great location, great room, good facilities, great view but the administration is somewhat hit and miss.

    Back in Prague after 30 years

    Reviewed May 28, 2012

    A lot has changed in Prague over the last 30 years. Most significantly is the service and quality of the hotel we stay in. This time there is even hot water, long,strong, hot showers are one of the joys of travelling. sadly there was a bit of a leak and in spite of positioning the glass screen as carefully as possible, the bathroom floor turned into a wading pool.
    The cost of our breakfasts was included in the rate we got on-line and it was a very generous buffet with all the hot and cold selections anyone could wish for. Our beds were very large and comfortable and while the windows could be opened for fresh air, the sound of rubber car tyres over cobbled roads was a bit of a distraction to a good night's sleep. There is air-con, but it is a bit noisy too.
    The location is fabulous, facing the river and a short walk from all the Old Town attractions.
    Staff are helpful and smiling- mostly- while the breakfast rooms can get busy, the tables are cleared very promptly so you don't have to wait long (if at all) for a seat.
    Clean and generous sized rooms, no in-room tea and coffee facilities, but that seems the norm for Europe. I'd be very happy to send my friends there.

    It reminds me a lot of the Italian hotels (4 and 5 stars): had their glory in the 90's and then slowly their glow faded with the years to come.
    Probably because investments were never planned since.
    Or, probably because they simply don't think that it's really necessary.
    I can think that this adds up to the authenticity of the Prague experience.
    As I said, just like in Italy.
    So, you can't be upset that things are not exactly at a 5 star standard, as rates are very good.
    From my point of view, the only thing worth upgrading is the staff. Communnication.
    And that's that!

    Historical Traveler Reviews President Hotel Prague

    Highly recommended

    from

    Perfect location in Old Town; outstanding service. Nicely renovated; huge, luxurious bathrooms; good meeting rooms.

    Great location, smart hotel, limited facilities

    from

    Booked this hotel for 4 days for a break with my wife. The hotel is centrally based next to the river and more expensive Inter-Continental Hotel - 2 bridges down (10 mins walk) from Charles Bridge. The junior suite was excellent and room service top class. All the staff were excellent. We did not dine at the hotel, apart from the breakfast, because it was far more expensive than in town. We used the bar for a drink at the beginning of each night but it was hardly used, properly as a result of the prices and lack of atmosphere /piano being loud. The gym was disappointing and the one running machine and one bike did need some attention but the sauna and jacuzzi were excellent. You can book the whole suite free of charge (gym, shower, jacuzzi and sauna). The casino always looked very quiet and I was irritated as to why there was no english papers (US & french only foreign papers).

    Overall, first time to prague and if you want a hotel centrally located, without the usual 5* facilities, then this is it. Think of a good english 3/4* and you will be satisfied. Just outside the main hub, so away from the rabble but close enough to walk everywhere, which was helpful as it rained 3 days - we never got one taxi. My recommendation for a czech meal, without paying tourist rates, is the Kolkovna (just five minutes walk from the hotel - V Kolkovne 8 - tel 420 224 819 701). My wife and I had a lovely dinner with several beers for under 1000,- (£25). The hotel will book you a table. Enjoy.

    Muy buen hotel en el corazón de Praga/Great hotel in Prague's heart.

    from

    No es por ser presumidos, pero se nota que es un hotel de dueños españoles.

    -Situado junto al Río Moldava, cerca del barrio judío y a 10 minutos del famoso Puente de San Carlo.

    -Hotel con salones que aluden a pintores españoles como Goya pese a que el español no lo hablan demasiado.

    -Habitaciones muy grandes y limpias, buffete de desayuno estupendo.

    Es agradable tener este sitio para descansar en tus largas caminatas por la maravillosa ciudad de las mil agujas.

    Excellent Hotel

    from

    If you have booked this hotel, you can relax right now as you have made an excellent choice.

    It is located next to the Vlatava river near the Jewish quarter of Prague. It is in the next road to the main shopping street Pradiska where you will find Lacoste, Hugo Boss and Louis Vuitton etc.

    The hotel has its own limo pick up service where they will meet you at the airport in a stylish black Mercedes Benz A class car (room for 4 passengers and 2 suitases) - the cost is £43 for a RETURN trip - fantastic value - book directly with the hotel (1550 czech kronas). Doors are opened for you and cases taken to your room by the bellboys. We stayed in a superior room at the rear of the hotel which had superb views of the beautiful Prague castle - stunning at night. Rooms are very spacious with king size bed, mini bar, tv with Sky channels, air conditioned, lovely marble bathroom. All spotlessly clean. Breakfast was plentiful and included in our price. Sausage, bacon, scrambled egg, fried eggs to order, cold meats, cheeses, cereals, crossiants, jam, crusty bread, toast, yoghurts, danish pastries - you name it, they had it.

    The hotel has 2 computers in the reception area and you can have 20 minutes free use at a time to check your emails while you are away. The hotel has a nice bar but drinks are quite pricey - much cheaper to drink out of the hotel. Hotel has a very small casino in the reception area. It never got too packed. If you require a bigger casino there is a Happy Days casino in the main shopping street Paridiska.

    The hotel has a beauty salon and also a small gym in the basement.

    There is a 24 hour reception desk where the staff were always very helpful. There is also a good concierge service staffed by Milo and Brigitte - where you can buy tram tickets, tour tickets and also get recommendations for local restaurants.

    The hotel restaurant is lovely. On our arrival we found a Buy One Get One Free voucher in the room which we used on our first night. They knocked a full 50% off the bill. Look out for this on the mini bar as you enter the room. If not there, may be worth asking the concierge can you have one to try out the hotel restaurant.

    Mini bar a bit pricey as with many hotels of this standard so it may be worth buying drinks in local shops and storing them in the mini bar to save money.

    Bottles of water are about 50p in local shops.

    Maid service is excellent and daily. They also leave little chocolates on your pillow.

    The hotel is well situated for all the sights.

    Come out of the hotel and turn left. Stay on the main road following the river line and you will come to the Charles Bridge in a few minutes.

    For Parisdska shopping street, come out of hotel and turn left and 1st left again. You will pass all the shops and at the end of the road you will hit Old Town Square - keep going again and you will arrive at Wenceslas Square.

    The sights I would recommend are the Astronomical Clock in Old Town Square - watch what happens ON THE HOUR. Prague Castle is stunning. Various tours to do within the Castle Grounds - you can pick and choose which ones to do. Make sure you do Golden Lane and go in each of the little houses. Little surprises and cute shops to be found in each one. The crossbow shooting in the first house is great fun for £1.50.

    Walking across the Charles Bridge is good. You can buy oil paintings or have your characture drawing done by pavement artists.

    Wencelas Square is a huge shopping street and is actually more a rectangle shape than a square. You will find Debenhams and C&A along here aswell as numerous bars, restarants and souvenir shops.

    There is also a TESCOS not far from here if you need to stock up on anything.

    We also did a river cruise which was for 45 minutes for £7.50. Good commentary by the staff and a free beer and chocolate bar whilst you sail.

    We had a great time in Prague and would certainly go back again and stay at this same hotel.

    Hotel fit for a president

    from

    We have just returned from a two night stay at the Hotel President situated on the banks of the Vltava River in Prague. We would recommend it to everyone. It is in a great location within walking distance to the Charles Bridge and also the Old Town Square. Walk across the bridge outsie and up the hill to "the metronome" for wonderful views of the city. The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms are very large as was the bathroom, with a separate shower and his & her washbasins. The standard of decor was superb. The breakfast included in the price will set you up for the day; the choice was excellent with defintely something for every one. Also with breakfast between 6.30 -10.30 am weekdays and till 11am on the weekend you really can please yourself. Breakfast is served in the dining room overlooking the river. Overall a brilliant hotel and there are some bargain prices available if you book last minute. We paid £156 for two nights for the two of us.

    Higly recommended

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel President during our last trip to Prague. The hotel was just great. Perfect location, nice room and the staff was really kind and always prompt to assist the customers.

    I higlhy recomend this hotel if you are looking for a 4+ stars hotel without spending a fortune.

    Someone else on his review was surprised why this hotel is not too much advertised on the websites. I totally agree with it, it is a mistery!!

    Excellent staff & position

    from

    Location is ideal and the views are great (from our room at least)! Staff were very helpful and cannot be faulted. Only issue was that went at a quiet time of the year and were outnumbered by the staff around 3to1! Staff could not do enough for you!

    Location was perfect on the river and within a very pleasant walking distance from all the major sights including the Castle, the old town square, etc.

    Overall, we could not find a proper fault with the hotel and when we return to Prague we will definitely think of this hotel.

    Good Choice

    from

    If you are looking for an American-style corporate hotel (Intercontinental, Hilton, Hyatt etc.) in Prague this should be your first choice. It has an excellant location (right next to the far more expensive Intercontinental and 500 meters from Old Town Square) The 'Superior Rooms" really do have a "spectacular" view of Prague castle and are huge! Friendly staff always willing to help, concierge desk can arrange dinner reservations/theater tickets, and limousine to/from airport. The breakfast included has wide range of choices. Why this hotel does not show up on more Prague related websites is a mystery. Don't be put off by the fact the hotel has a casino - no one used it and it is small. Highly recommended hotel.

    Excellent Property

    from

    Very friendly, courteous staff. Spacious rooms with lots of amenities. This hotel is located right on the river near the Charles Bridge and the Jewish Section. It includes an excellent restaurant.

    The casino was largely unused. I'm not sure why this hotel isn't more popular.

    Perfect situated.

    from

    It´s more a four stars hotel, very new, very clean and the best is the situation, close to the Intercontinental Hotel at the end of the Paris street, just five minutes walking from the main square. We never used any transport. Service good.
