Travel Blogs from Prague
Morning arrived early, as we had to catch the 5:18 bus from our hotel to the airport. Aside from the exceedingly cramped condition at the final few stops on the way to the airport our transition from Amsterdam to Prague was blessedly routine.
The final week leading into the trip was marked with more activity than I anticipated, and I was …
We awoke from our subdued sleep much more chipper and ready to face the day. This was finally our first chance to really sleep in and we took full advantage of it. The hotel provided breakfast at the restaurant next door so we figured we may as well get some stale rolls and jam before heading out for our day. Once again we ended up more than …
So far we've managed the different languages - even in Croatia where many speak some English but Czech is completely foreign- literally - not a clue about signs or even basic notices, can't even give it an intelligent guess . For a start there aren't many vowels. This may have contributed to the taxi driver taking us for a ride - again literally - …
DAY 39 SAT Our luggage seemed to have grown heavier since yesterday. We dragged our bags down the street to reception, paid our bill and hailed a black cab. The helpful driver suggested that it would be better to go to Hyde Park Station rather than Victoria so that we wouldn't have to change trains. Things became a bit difficult when we discovered …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Salvator Prague
This hotel is 5 minutes stroll from the Old Town Square and 10 minutes from Wenscelas Square...the first being the much better of the two places.
Great Value, Good Location
This was a charming little hotel in a great location. My friends and I had a triple room. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean. We (three girls) felt really safe walking back to the hotel late at night. The little shops next door are wonderful. This isn't an four star American hotel. Don't stay here if you're looking for mints on your pillows and 1000 count sheets. But, if you want a clean convenient room that isn't exorbinantly expensive, this is a great value.
A really lovely hotel, friendly and excellently placed
My husband and I had 4 nights in the Salvator. A happy and friendly hotel. One night we were a bit cold and the staff left us a blanket for the next night. Everyone was very friendly. Our room looked out at the front and was very quiet. It was spacious too and comfy. The breakfast was a good spread and kept us going and the La Boca restaurant next door was really good and we ended up eating there every evening and were welcomed in with good friendly service. We would definitely recommend it and come again if ever we came to Prague.
Great stay, just a little noisy
Our stay at Hotel Salvator was great. It certainly caters to British holidaymakers taking cheap Easyjet flights to Prague. That said, the staff were all very helpful and friendly and spoke great English. We had a double room with shared bathroom. The bathrooms were clean, and we had to wait just once to use them. The room was also clean, but the beds were a bit hard and uncomfortable at times. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Perhaps the only negative was that the walls were very thin. We could hear basically everything going on in the hall and at times, other rooms. Good value, good location, would definitely come back.
Loved it - so friendly
My wife and I stayed at this hotel in December 2004. Hey, it's a 2 or 3 star hotel and that's what we got. Large room, tiny bathroom but it was immaculately clean, and it was genuine 5-10 min walk from the old town centre. Staff were wonderfully helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good and location was surprisingly quiet. This is not the Hilton but we enjoyed it very much. Would definitely go there again.
My wife and I have used Salvator on three occasions and each time the rooms and service have been excellent. The Salvator's location is great for easy access to al of Prague's major attractions, and within walking of most of them. There are some excellent restaurants on Dlouha which is just across the road from Truhlarska (Dahab being a favourite of ours), but you need not look too far for good food and atmosphere as La Boca, situated on the ground floor of the hotel is just as good, if not better, than most of the more expensive and crowded restaurants of Prague.
Nice but noisy
We just spent 4 nights at the Salvator, which is clean, friendly and central, as advertised. Only serious problem was the noise. Our room's (#18) only window opened on the inner balcony so we had to keep the curtains drawn all the time for privacy and the window closed to keep some of the noise out. Even so we were awakened several times every night by returning guests who would walk and talk right by our window. Considering the price of 2,850 Krona per night, the Salvator didn't meet our expectations.
Very friendly staff,there were 11 of us on a stag week,not a problem.Rooms very clean,mini bar in every room.Great buffet breakfast,food in la boca fantastic,would saty again without doubt....
Central, clean, friendly!
Just 5 minutes walk away from the beautiful Old Town Sqaure and the shopping heaven of Wenscelas Square, this hotel is ideally situated.
The staff were extremely friendly when booking and we booked transfers with them from the airport.
Decor in some rooms was a little dated, but all the rooms were a very good size, clean and comfortable, with basic comforts such as TV, hairdryer, mini-bar etc.
The breakfast was basic continental, but there is something to please most people.
The attached restaurant was lovely, with good food and charming atmosphere.
If you want cheapish, clean, friendly service, this hotel is worth considering.
I've stayed at the Salvator many times, almost since its inception. It's bright, clean, and pleasant with a good breakfast, an excellent location, and a friendly staff. Unfortunately, some of the staff is too friendly; when the desk clerk thought I was to be out of the room for a considerable time, he had one of his chums go through my belongings and it was only by a most fortuitous happenstance that I returned in time to save my stuff. This is a honey trap best avoided, unless you travel with absolutely nothing of value.
