Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Salvator Prague
Hotel Salvator - Nice and central!
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.
The hotel is very quaint and pretty and the rooms are large,clean and comfortable. The staff helpful and informative about the area and speak good English, although do try to learn a few words of Czech as they do appreciate it....I was the only one in my group that tried (Dobre den!!).
TIP#1 is to book your taxi with the hotel..and not pay the 850 Kronas we paid in a small skoda to the hotel...the hotel charges 550 Kronas to/from the hotel in a top of the range spacious Skoda!
TIP#2 Walk around the side streets where you can find loads of shops/bars selling their products alot cheaper than on the squares themselves....and I mean literally a few metres away in some cases; and then when you've had your fill of beer and good wholsesome food grab a chair at one of the cafes in the square under the outside heaters and watch the world go by.
TIP#3 The waiters tend to take your empty glass/plate away as soon as you have finished and ask you if u want another even if others are eating/drinking...making you feel as though you should. Do what I did and leave a little beer in your glass and they leave you alone until you are ready for another yourself!
TIP#4 Wear layers of clothes, the wind chill makes it icy cold outside this time of year..but the rooms/bars are very warm so you need to be able to undress to stay comfortable.
TIP#5 Check out the beer prices as you walk in, as some bars charge anything from 100 Kronos plus (£2+) for a beer whilst others charge 30/40 Kronos (£75p/£1)...these cheaper bars have more atmosphere and are not usually overwhelmed by too many tourists...hunt them out!!!!!!!
In general the prices of goods are not as cheap as they used to be but that is the price you pay for Prague's popularity...so would I go again...DEFINITELY! 90 minutes from Stansted, £75pp return on average and a beautiful town with loads of history.
This isn't just a place for stags either...we went as two couples for a birthday bash and found the place built for couples and groups. ENJOY! Parm' xx
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.
I love this hotel
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.
The staff at Salvator are courteous and helpful, the rooms are huge and fantastic value for money and the breakfast selection is of a good standard.
I would (and regularly do) recommend Hotel Salvator to anyone considering a visit to the beautiful city 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.

... in the city! One of which is on here and it wont need to be spelled out what the cubisms are meant to be depicting. I do try to help the situation in that photo though.
We wander through the Jewish quarter and see so many awesome stalls and markets around the street. We kind of got lost but that was the best part, we ended up making our way towards the river. The river that runs through Prague is pretty wide and has some swanky looking cruise ships trolling ...
... through it. There are lots of pedestrian roads and squares which make it very walker friendly, though I wouldn't want to walk them during the height of summer. Today was really chilly and as per usual I didn't really dress to the conditions. I did have a jumper, coat and scarf but failed the beanie and gloves story. The day was still and clear blue sky, but if you weren't in the sun it was bitter and as the day drew to a ...
Off to see the castle. Prague Castle is a rambling cluster of building across from the old town. Took the tram across town and up the hill. Entry is via a main gate that has hourly changing of the guard and with music at noon. Areas visited include the church which grew by sections over the centuries ranging from renaissance to baroque to 19 and 20 centuries. Quite a Mix. The connected castle has a reception room in which jousts ...
... old neighborhood area and we enjoyed walking in and out of a few shops before we jumped back in another auto and headed to our dinner location. At the diner spot, there were hundreds of little street vendor stands where we dipped through to find last minute souvenirs. I found a scroll painting that had little elephants drawn with oranges and greens. I walked the vendor down with the price and walked away feeling satisfied.
After dinner it was back ...
... as it is known by district, one will notice the significant increase in prices - on just about everything. After visiting the Prague castle, I left confused and unenthusiastic about the whole experience. Even the attendant who sold me my ticket advised me not to pay extra for the audio guide as it was 'a waste of money'. The charm of Prague is instead found through the winding cobblestone paths in ...
