... at 7. We tried a few sports bars which here in Prague do not allow people under 18 or are so smoky you cannot breath. So we found a nice hotel Hotel Josef with a bar in the lobby and the big screen and sat and watched for 45 mins. Everywhere in Europe is so hooked on the world cup, TVs are on everywhere. After this we went to our dinner at Maitrea, another great veggie place in Old Town Prague. We had Czech dishes served veggie style and again another great ...
... It took about 40 minutes to get from the airport to where we got off of the metro. The directions from the hostels website were not that clear so we got lost trying to find it and went into a store to have someone help us but the worker did not even know where the street was, a couple that got to Prague the day before tried helping us out but they did not know either. We finally found where we were going and got to the hostel and we're very confused because we had to be buzzed ...
... that this was the first time I'd ever been in an actual castle. So much history in the making!
Week 2 and 3 and 4 came and went as we visited a tower near the center of Prague ("The Powder Tower"). I walk by this tower nearly every day now, but at the time I had no idea where we were within the city. And this is another great thing about Prague that a city like DC just doesn't give: you get amazing views of the areas in so many different parts of the city. ...
... famous people lived here through the years. Located in the old part of town, on the Castle side, the district underwent major reconstruction starting in 1988 including this building. Next door to us is the US Embassy, hence constant police presence on the street 24\7,

That meant that all of the Catholic churches were changed to Luthern and those citizens that would not convert were asked to leave the city. The emperor and his lady were stanch Catholics and therefore refused to re-visit the town. That change of religion and the resulting attitude of the Emperor caused the town to fall into a decline ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mamaison Riverside Hotel Prague
What a gem
If you want bijou luxury at affordable prices, you must stay here. We spent three nights in April 2004 and couldn't find a single thing to criticise. Staff are friendly, enthusiastic and efficient. OK so the bar prices are high: what else can you expect in a place of this quality? The location is a little on the edge of things, but nowhere is more than 20 minutes walk away, and the nearest restaurants across the bridge are great if you like cheap authentic food.
Stay at this hotel
Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in Dec 2004, This hotel is listed as one the the worlds small luxury hotels. I woulsd have to totally agree.
We had roomoverlooking river, rooms have large cealings, TV, Excellent fixtures and fittings , including heated bathroom floor, beds that were really difficult to get up out of in the morning. Staff we efficinet and could help with anything. Whilst we were their we wanted to dine at the Kampa Park restraunt, not only did the staff arrange this but we also had one can only be considered the best table overlooking the charles bridge and the river, hotel also arrange a car to take us. A Truly wonderfull hotel and staff, A place I will always return to in Prague.
Wonderful service, excellent location
We stayed 3 nights at the Riverside Hotel in Prague, and I can honestly say it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in - service and value.
(and we've stayed in a few!). Nothing is too much trouble, the staff are courteous and conscientious, the decor and rooms luxurious with all mod cons, but an air of bygone luxury that you just dont see these days. Breakfasts unsurpassed (no other restaurant facilities, but lots of good restaurants close by and staff willing to recommend and book tables). The hotel is in a nice area, our room had a fantastic view over the river, and all attractions are within around 20 mins walking - old town, or castle - charles' bridge about 10 mins. All in all, we will go back for sure - highly recommended!!!!
Stayed in one of the suites on the top floor for 3 nights and can definately say loved staying at the hotel. Staff were all very friendly and room was great. Right on the river with Charles bridge about 15mins walk away. Would not hesitate to go back again. Good French restaurant on the opposite side of the river over the bridge. Had a great stay in Prague going to opera and other concerts.
Stayed for 3 nights and were completely bowled over by the service and facilities offered in the hotel. Staff very polite and helpful, hotel is small but decorated to a high standard. Be warned however the mini-bar is expensive!
A great hotel, would stay again, as a treat would upgrade to the dulux room.
A fried and I had three nights at the Riverside early December. The staff were wonderful, extremely helpful and we wanted for nothing. The breakfast was lovely. Overall there is not one negative thing to say about the Riverside. I would recommend it to all.
Wonderful Experience at the Riverside
We just returned from Prague (Dec. 5th) after spending 5 nights a this hotel. We had a wonderful experience there. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accomodating. Our room was top notch, quiet, and very comfortable. The hotel was quite frankly even better than we had hoped or expected. Our next trip to Prague will include a stay at the Riverside.
My boyfriend and I had been working very hard and needed a luxurious hotel and base from which to eat, drink and explore the city. We got exactly that from the hotel.
We thought the hotel was wonderful - the breakfasts were amazing - with all the smoked salmon you could eat, fresh fruit and cold meats.. the bathtub was huge, the room very tasteful and comfortable. The service was excellent, staff polite and friendly. The proximity to the centre was perfect, and there was no noise from the road either.
I would recommend this hotel as it really was a treat.
Quality hotel with a great location
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nghts in november and found the decor and quality of the rooms very good. The rooms are small but detail is given to the high standard of fittings and quality of bedding etc. The use of color and style is very good in this small hotel. We found the staff very helpful and freindly and they were able to arrange everything we required like recommending good restaurants to taxi pickups etc. The Hemmingway bar is tastefully decorated and comfortable and serves very good cocktails and wine. We found this hotel to be a good base for exploring Prague and would go back.
Do Not Stay At Riverside Hotel!!!!!!!
Dear fellow travellers,Firstly I would like to point out that I am generally not in the habit of complaining but I believe on this occasion such emphatic complaint is justified!!Without being too emphatic do not stay at the Riverside Hotel!!I have just returned from Prague having spent 5 nights at the hotel, but was forced to leave on the penultimate day and book into another hotel.This was due to the fact that my room had been entered without my permission ie the "DO NOT DISTURB" sign was on the door,yet the hotel staff felt totally justified in ignoring aforementioned sign.Certain items went missing from my room.When I confronted the hotel manager about this his attitude was deplorable. Effectively he accused me of lying, as something like this had, apparently, not happened previously.As you can imagine I was disgusted by this and quite frankly had never encounterted such an attitude before in any of the numerous hotels that I have stayed in!!!I certainly did not expect to meet with such ignorance and apathy in a supposed "small luxury hotel of the world" which it certainly is not!!!!! Nor is it even bordering on five star accomodation!!!Having spent an already prohibitive amount of money in a hotel which quite frankly has no facilities save for a bar which sits about 10 people and a room service/hotel food menu which offers about 5 items,I felt I could not possibly stay another night there.There are many fantastic hotels in Prague and I would strongly suggest that u make other arrangements rather than stay in this gaudy boarding house.Check your hotel bill before you settle up as you might be surprised at what you may be charged for.ie.facecloth.You have been forewarned!!
