Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Seifert Prague
Great place to stay
We stay at Seifert for 8 nights (Oct 25 to Nov 02)
The room was great and spotless , a very good breakfast, nice people at the front desk . Two bus run to the subway 207 and 133.
A supermarket and a drugstore a few block from the hotel .
You can walk to the subway station it took us about 15 minutes.
we love our stay and recommand it
Fab Hotel, Fab City.
Just returned from a 2 night stay at Seifert with my partner and 4 friends.I cant recommened the hotel highly enough, all three rooms that we had were spotlessly clean and spacious, the beds are so comfy, just what you need after a days sightseeing!Particular favourite of mine was the powerful, hot shower...fab!The staff are friendly,speak great english and there was a good choice for breakfast.
The 133 bus into the city was great, it runs regularly and takes you to within a 5min walk to the Old Square(where the Astronomical clock is). We bought a 3 day travel pass at the airport (as recommended by users of this site) it cost us around 220 kr and we used this all weekend.
Recommend a resturant around the corner from the hotel if you want a good,cheap meal and beers. 6 of us ate there for less than £5 each including drinks. (Didnt catch the name, but if u come out of the hotel, walk right then take ur first right its approx 50 meters along this road on the right hand corner.
We all loved Prague, its a beautiful city and there are lots to see and do. The only 'problem' that we had was that as we were a group of 3 ladies and 3 men, the men got constantly hassled by people trying to entice them into lap dancing bars, the fact that they were with us ladies didnt stop them from doing their best to drag them in! (I must admit though, i dont really think that they put up enough resistance!!)
All in all we all had a fab weekend and we will all use Seifert again if we return to this fab city.
We stayed four nights at the Hotel Seifert and cannot recommend it highly enough!
The area around the hotel is a residential area with a few bars and restaurants, it's slightly run down but please dont let that put you off. The hotel is modern and clean, the reception staff spoke very good english and although we didnt need to use them often, they were very helpful when we needed them.
The room was quite large with a big double bed, kettle, fridge, and TV (CNN and sky news). The bathroom was modern and spotlessly clean. It had a good hairdryer and the shower was one of the best i've ever used - just what you need to wake you up in the morning! The room was cleaned and fresh towels provided every day.
The breakfast was also very nice with sausages, various eggs, breads - a bit more than the usual continental breakfast and worth getting up for.
We need to thank the previous person who posted directions from the airport to the hotel using public transport. It was so easy and hassle free we used the bus and metro all week.
If you take the 133 bus from the stop across the road from the hotel, it will take you to the city centre in under 5 minutes. I think the stop was called Starosmaska, this was right next to the old town square (with the astronomical clock) and Charles bridge - so it's a very central location. Just remember to buy your travel pass at the airport before you leave, it's very cheap and really worth it.
We went a walking tour with the Yellow Umbrella Company. This lasted nearly 3 hours for around £7, but not only was it interesting, it also helped us find our way around for the rest of the week.
We also had dinner in a restuarant in front of the Astronomical clock, I cant remember the name, but it's the only one thats downstairs from the street. It was a bit more expensive than other places around, but really worth it. The meals were massive and delicious and a live band played too. A good night and worth the extra.
Prauge is a beautiful city, easy to get around and as cheap or expensive as you want to make it. This hotel was fantastic, a great place to go back to each night and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Still great value
Just come back from Prague. Glad to say that the Seifert hotel was all it was cracked up to be. The rooms are fairly large, comfortable, spotlessly clean and well maintained. They are not air conditioned which could be a problem during a heatwave.
The continental breakfast is of a good standard, and cooked eggs are available to order.
The location is about 35 minutes walk from the centre and there is excellent public transport.
The area outside the hotel is run down, but well lit, so at no time did we feel threatened. The other plus of this area is that it caters for students, so eating out is between 30 and 50 percent of the prices in the centre. The pub Planeta, about 200metres down the hill was particularly good value, as was the Italian about a further 200metres oppposite the sex shop
A gem of a hotel - great value for money!!
we booked the the flights through bmi baby and the hotel through easyjet hotels. 3 nights b&b cost less than £125 per person all in!
once we got to prague airport we bought a weeks travel pass, which once activated gives you unlimited travel on buses, trams and the metro. all this for less than £7! (london, hang your head in shame...)
from here we got bus no.100 to take us to Zlicín station and the beginning of line B of the metro.
this will take you straight to Florenc without having to change. once up on the pavement cross the road to the bus-stop and wait for bus no.133. after a 5 min ride, this will take you to just across the road from the hotel. (the stop needed is just after a sex-shop!)
remember bus 133, it will become your best friend for nipping back and forth to the centre. it can get very crowded for the trip between the hotel and Florenc station, but the metro is where all the locals get off and the bus empties letting you sit the rest of the way into the centre. when going into the centre, stay on the bus till the very last stop, Staromestská. head away from the river and it's just a short walk to the old town square.
although the hotel is in a slightly run-down area, it didn't feel threatening in the surrounding streets and was quite safe. (probably more so than cities in the uk)
once inside the hotel you wonder how you got this quality for the price you paid. it is lovely!
the rooms are comfortable and have everything you could need, after all it's the city you've come to see - not the hotel!
24hr reception with free internet access and english speaking staff who will go out their way to help you in any way they can.
if you want a nice, clean, in-expensive place to stop in prague, which is only 15mins from the centre by bus. then look no further than the Seifert.
it does exactly what it says on the tin...
Wunderbares Hotel; blitzsauber; modern und neu (Totalrenovation 2005); tiptopes Frühstücksbüffet mit einer Riesen-Auswahl.
Simply a great place to stay !
I chose the recently-refurbished Hotel Seifert as part of a flight+hotel deal with Easyjet. Payment was online so there was no money to pay at the hotel. I was exceptionally impressed by the state of the hotel, and it was a pleasure to stay in. I would definitely go back again.
I arrived at the hotel mid-afternoon using one of Prague's excellent and cheap trams: the nearest stop is Lipanska and you can catch the number 9. I found that none of the locals knew the hotel, so you'd be best off using a map.
I was promptly and courteously booked in by the multi-lingual receptionist: my Czech is poor but this was no problem. I was given a free local map and they told me about the free internet access PC in the lobby. Reception also sold travel passes (a must for serious tourists), snacks, wine and all the usual items that are sold in Western hotels. They insist that your key is left at reception and in return you're issued with a card with your name and room details. You'll be pleased to know that reception is manned 24/7 (really!) so if you take full advantage of Prague's nightlife it won't be a problem getting back in the small hours :-)
The rooms are on several floors and reached either by stairs or modern lift. My room was warm all the time (good in an Eastern European winter) and very quiet due to the double-glazing. Rooms have TV, phone and tea/coffee making facilities. The TV has local and satellite channels including CNN and Sky news. The bathroom has a shower (no bath) and towels, shampoo and soap are supplied. Definitely no complaints there.
Breakfast is a self-serve buffet and on-hand kitchen staff will cook eggs as required.It's traditional Czech/Eastern-European cuisine, with sausage, bread, cheese, cold meats, fruit, cereal, fruit juice, coffee. All beautifully prepared and very tasty.
Why not an "excellent" rating? It's purely down to location-Zizkov is somewhat run-down, but if that doesn't bother you then I'd recommend the Hotel Seifert.
Just returned from Prague, 20-22nd Jan 2006. We caught a taxi to the hotel, cost 650 CZ, however caught the public transport systems back to the Airport, because we had used this over the weekend and realised it was very straight forward. The hotel is situated just outside the main town, but transport is very good, we used to get the bus 133 into the main town and then use either the Trams or the Metro. A day ticket to use these facilites is only 80CZ perday.
Across the raod from the hotel is a couple of pubs (very Cheap 30 pence for a large beer)and a Chinese restaurant which is excellent value, (drinks, 3 courses) £8.00 for two people.
Prague itself is absolutely wonderful and I would go back again and stay at the same hotel, it does'nt look much but has all the right requirements.
We also went on the All Inclusive Tour of Prague (£20.00) which lasted 6 hours, boat, tram, guides, 3 course lunch, drinks, tea, coffe and cakes. Fully recommend this (The Yellow Umbrella Company)

... t very good but give the guy a gold star for trying.
We walked into the main square and just missed the cuckoo clock that goes off on the hour every hour. As a group we sit down and get some dinner at a fancier restaurant than we are usually accustomed (which is most) and wait out our time for the next hour. We had some delicious Tapas and shared our food till the hour rounded again and it was pretty special! During tea I went on a mission to find and ATM and ...
... beautiful views of the city, and being a castle the grounds were giant, but the views were the best !!!! We descended down a whole lot of steps, but just once as that was where the changing of the guard was and the processions of long ago.
Found a Tesco grocery and department store right at a tram stop, so now we are like the locals, buying groceries and taking the subway home!!! So glad we have 3 weeks to figure out the city and learn to be like a ...
... through shopping arcades then crossing streets. Admittedly it's a bit hard to lose a Hilton Hotel. Today we caught a series of trams and used shank's pony to navigate the streets of Prague with only a few moments of complete trepidation. Taking a tram in the absolute wrong direction heading for the Prague burbs did raise the fear factor. I'm now paying for about 7hrs of walking and am almost totally lame but this is the price you ...
... for breakfast. We found out the this morning that there were quite serious bush fires burning back home and so we began emailing to see what we could find out. So sad to hear of the devastation. It was quickly clear that our house sitter was all prepared and was being well looked after should it come closer to our home. Not what she’s expected her holiday involve. It felt quite unsettling to know that things weren’t good ...
It turned out we were on the only two on the tour that day so it was rather a personal service, Our tour guide, Imogen, had just finished her post grad studies in East European studies so was well placed to show us around. She'd certainly done a lot of travelling and told us her grandmother was a Kiwi.
The tour was about 4 hours all up and covered the building where the Jews had been rounded up (now a modern art gallery), ...
