Historical Traveler Reviews Mamaison Suite Hotel Pachtuv Palace Prague
Ideal place to stay in Prague
We just returned from a week in Prague, and stayed at the Pachtuv Palace based on the previous reviews in Tripadvisor. The hotel was everything we had hoped for and more -- beautiful, ideal location and great service. Since we were travelling with our two young children, we got a two bedroom suite, which allowed the kids room to spread out, and keeping the kitchenette stocked with milk, bread, juice etc. kept the children in good humor and contributed to a very pleasant experience overall. We highly recommend the Pachtuv Palace and are looking forward to a return trip.
Absolutely loved the Pachtuv Palace
My husband and I just spent our wedding night at Pachtuv Palace. We were absolutely satisfied and amazed, and highly recommend the hotel to travellers who prefer boutique luxury hotels. The hotel has been carefully renovated with a great style, preserving all the historical features. It has very spacious and original suites, with interior finishes of very high quality. A stay at this hotel is made all the more special by attentive, but personal service. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and it was magnificent. It was beautifully prepared for our arrival, rose petals everywhere, fresh gorgeous flowers, special candles, luxury soap basket, etc. Everything was top quality; there were frescos on all the walls, special lighting made it stand out even more. All the suites are equipped with self-contained kitchens; there is also free internet service in all the room and wi-fi in the lobby area. The location is superior too. Just steps from the Charles Bridge, most of the great rooms have direct view on the bridge and Prague Castle. I cannot imagine better location in Prague. Everything together, surely one of the best hotels in Prague. We are definitely returning. We can't speak highly enough about our experience at the Pachtuv Palace. Don't miss out on the experience.
Superb, superb, superb .....
Visited Prague in April 2006 for my friends birthday. We found the Pachtuv Palace on the internet and it exceeded all of our expectations. The service by the staff was very attentive and professional. Concierge enjoyed telling us about the good places to eat and drink. Our two rooms were the very best with spectacular views of the river, castle, cathedral and Charles bridge. The attention to detail was excellent and it was a mix of traditional Czech and modern. Wonderful parquet flooring, traditional furniture with sumptuous fabrics. Our bedroom had a wonderful four poster bed with drapes, excellent for a good nights sleep after pounding the streets of Prague.
The hotel has an excellent position and you can walk from the lobby to the main square in about 5 minutes provided that you dont stop and browse in all the interesting shops along the way.
A fantastic hotel, I am so impressed that I plan to return with my parents for a long weekend and they are very choosy about where they stay.
The Pachtuv Palace was Perfect!
We want to proclaim that the Pachtuv Palace in Prague was the "grand finale" of our trip to Europe! Located within steps of the Vlatava River, with a view of the Charles Bridge, we couldn't have asked for any place nearer to "the action".
Our room was a beautiful suite, stocked with all the amenities of a comfortable home. The view to the Prague Castle and Charles Bridge was stunning. As for the service, the staff at the Pachtuv was highly professional, courteous, friendly, and more than accommodating to our every need.
Breakfast was served in their inviting dining room, a place of gracious coziness. The buffet was ample, but we could also order special egg dishes or a variety of other foods and drinks.
The fact that we appreciate the history of Prague and its culture made the Pachtuv even more delightful, knowing that Mozart had stayed there when it was a private residence.
On our next visit to Prague,we will be looking forward to the elegance and secured privacy of the Pachtuv Palace. It is just the right size to make one feel as if they are staying in "private quarters" in the center of that lovely city.
Different from a normal hotel, and we loved it
Pachtuv has now been open for 1.5 years. From the room we were in, we thought we were the first to stay in it, as it was in excellent condition.
Pachtuv is no ordinary hotel. From the moment you walk in you are not met with a large scale reception, but instead a low key, plush entrance hall with welcoming desk. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. For example, we were offered complimentary tea and coffee when we returned to the hotel following our last day in Prague, even though we had checked out that morning.
To get to the rooms, often requires going outside into a courtyard. The old part of the Palace is full of history. Rooms are individual in nature, so this review could differ from other reviews when comparing facilities. The room we were allocated included, hall, kitchen, large living area, four poster bed and large bathroom. There was double glazed windows, which reduced the noise from outside (we were in the old "original part" of the hotel).
The rooms tastefully balance, old style (high ceiling, large chandiler) with new, (under floor bathroom heating, large modern sinks etc). We found the bed to be extremely comfortable.
The location of the hotel is second to none for tourists, being no more than 3 minute walk to Charles Bridge (you see the hotel from the bridge), 3 minutes to the National Theatre, and 2 minutes to the old centre and 10 minutes walk from the main shopping area.
The one negative for the hotel is its breakfast area and the breakfast. As an apartment hotel the breakfast area is small, and we found the breakfast selection disappointing.
Overall however we would be more than happy to revisit this excellent establishment and would recommend it for a hotel experience that is a little different from the ordinary upper tier hotels you could choose to stay in.
We have just returned from another great trip to Prague and stayed this time in the Pachtuv Palace. This beautiful hotel is on the bank of the Vltava river next to the Charles Bridge. We got a great winter deal and managed to get a lovely riverside room as well which was a nice size (with 3 large windows) and had a bathroom and separate W.C. It also had a tiny kitchenette hidden away in a wardrobe - hob, kettle, microwave, toaster, fridge/minibar and sink!! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were cleaned every day, the bath was enormous and there were fluffy bathrobes supplied as well! The road could be a bit noisy with the windows open but the double glazing was superb and no noise could be heard with the windows shut. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as it is in a great location for seeing all the sights and will definitely stay there again.
A real palace!
I have just returned from spending 4 nights in a 'studio' room in the Pachtuv Palace and it was amazing! The main room was incredibly spacious with a massive four poster bed, sofa and dressing table. The kitchen and bathroom were extremely modern and very clean. The hotel staff were also very polite and helpful. The only piece of advice I would give is to save yourself £12 each every day and make breakfast in your own lovely, fully equipped kitchen. From what I saw the hotel breakfast is simply not worth this amount of money.
The hotel itself is situated on a road parallel to the river so as soon as you exit the hotel you have a great view of Charles bridge and Prague Castle. Old Town is simply around the corner and there are quite a few nice little restuarants nearby. I would recommend Cafe Rincon , which is a few doors down from the hotel, for some lovely home cooked food and cheap cocktails!
I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel - it is extremely clean, quiet and just as palatial as you would hope!
Treated like a princess at the Pachtuv Palace
I recently returned from a four night stay at the Pachtuv Palace and I felt just like a princess. The staff are meticulously professional but warm and friendly.
We had a great size room with a four poster bed, table and chairs, and a sofa seating area. We also had a very stylish, fully equiped kitchette. The bathroom was fantastic with beautiful tiling and separate shower and toilet.
With regard to location the Pachtuv wasn't in the centre of the tourist area, but bearing in mind the crowds and noise this was a definite plus. The bed was really comfy and it was nice to have a turn-down service in the evenings. Due to it's location as well there were no problems with unwanted noise.
It's only about a 5 minute walk to the main shopping/sightseeing areas and there's a fabulous italian restaurant next door which I highly recommend - it also makes up for the lack of restaurant in the hotel (although there was room service).
Speaking of food - one of the things I really appreciated was that breakfast concluded at 11.30, so you could go out for a late night without worrying that you'll have to go out first thing the next morning for something to eat.
All in all I had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Prague, but wants to stay in a more refined atmosphere and be indulged rather than deluged.
Pachtuv Palace-- delivered on every count. Fantastic.
We have just returned from Prague, where we stayed at Pachtuv Palace for eight nights, one of the highlights of our trip. It is an amazing "residence hotel", with an attentive and friendly staff, and just a minute or two away from one end of the Charles Bridge.
Our "room" in every aspect was amazing-- spacious with high ceilings, beautifully and elegantly designed and furnished. Our room had a kitchenette (with pots, toaster, stove, refrigerator, sink, utensils, cups, plates, cloth napkins-- all of the highest quality) all conveniently designed and hidden into a large armoire that looked like an antique but was actually built to accomodate the kitchenette. We had a huge living room, and an equally large adjacent bedroom, with four poster bed, chaise lounge, clothes armoire, chest of drawers, and another television. The split-bathroom was also well appointed with toiletries and plush robes, designed in more of a modern style, but perfectly blended with the old world charm of the overall room and building.
Housekeeping was excellent and totally unobtrusive.
Last year we stayed in Prague at a sister hotel to the Pachtuv Palace (same ownership)-- The Riverside -- and our experience was equally satisfying. We choose the Pachtuv Palace this time based on that experience, and because we wanted a kitchenette, which we used extensively, especially for breakfast and small snacks/meals.
We highly recommend Pachtuv Palace because of its excellent facilities, professional staff, and central location. If possible, ask for a tour of the building where you will see some amazing architecture, and even a room where Mozart composed. Also, note, that although the whole building is called Pachtuv Palace, the original "Pachtuv Palace" is just part of the building "complex". When making a reservation you may want to request that you be located in that part of the building if history matters to you, although I think you get the best views from the other part of the building.
A great, great place to stay while visiting a truly amazing city.
An Excellent place to stay
We have just returned from two nights at the Pachtuv Palace having been 'bumped' from the Iron Gate for an unspecified 'technical problem' and don't think that we lost out on the swap. The Pachtuv appears to have recently been converted/refurbished and has been done to a very high standard, high quality materials and fittings have been used throughout. The staff were at all times friendly, smiling and politely efficient. The hotel is set around a central courtyard garden and has the slightly odd arrangement whereby you go out of the strair well/lift area onto a veranda and walk along to another door where you enter the lobby outside your room. Our suite had a view of the castle and the Charles bridge and although a tram route runs along the side of the river such is the quality of the soundproofing that no traffic noise could be heard at all. A mini kitchenette was hidden inside a huge cupboard to enable you to cater for yourself if required (no restaurant on site only a buffet breakfast) but although there is a filter coffee machine no filters were supplied or other tea/coffee supplies although there is a minibar, well more of a fridge really,(since the Pachtuv is advertised as an appartment hotel I assume they work along the lines of a furnished appartment doesn't come with 'consumables'). About 10 minutes walk takes you to the Old Town Square, Charles Bridge is less than 3 mins and the National Theatre about 5.
All in all we were very impressed and would certainly consider returining to the Pachtuv.
