The House at The Three Drums Hotel (U Tri Bubnu)
Travel Blogs from Prague
Our last full day in Prague, our concert at the Estates in the evening.
We agreed to meet up with Dieter and Inge at 1 or so, it gave us time to tour the castle area. We walked up the steep hill, the Kings Way fighting the tourists who were taking way too long.
The castle area consists of government buildings, St Vitus Cathedral …
At 9:30 a.m. we boarded our train for the 7 hour trip from Budapest to Prague. Utilizing our Eurail passes, we reserved first class seats in a six person compartment. The trip passed quickly as we had another American couple (Barbara and Bill!) to chat with in our compartment. They had just finished a Viking Cruise on the Danube and were going to …
... type of animal or creature it was with a fact or two, my most favourite enclosure would have had to been the Elephants they had a great time with a great show from the elephants favourite zoo keeper. The only downer of the hole day was the café’s and food vans, they were way over priced but the food was delicious by the end of the day I was exhausted from going all around the zoo and seeing a massive variety of creatures. ...
... made it to King Charles Palace and Mum bought us shields. We saw inside the beautiful church. Then we went and had homemade lemonade and apple strudel in a cafe at the Palace. We sat near a famous tennis player Martina Navratilova,and Mum took a sneaky photo of her!
On the way home we saw a medieval fight, and they were using real swords and shields. They all had long hair!

We had a cabin to ourselves to spread our suitcases in. Prague main station (Praha HLN) was confusing. Although we had tried to brush up on Czech while travelling, I for one could not retain any of it. Much harder than French, or German. We had been warned about taxies ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe House at The Three Drums Hotel (U Tri Bubnu) Prague
We have stayed at this hotel before. Hotel personel are really helpful, speak great English. The hotel is right on the old square so walking everywhere is easy. A tube entrance is just 1/2 block away. The church across the walk has concerts most days.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Excellent location, friendly helpful staff.
Location excellent, right on the edge of Old Town Square. Staff friendly and very helpful. Small old hotel with plenty of character. Surprised how quiet and pleasant room was considering location to Square.
I agree with others breakfast wasn't brilliant but similar to many hotels on the continent. One thing to be aware of, there is no lift and, although the attic rooms are lovely, its a long way up if you have any infirmity.
These glowing reviews that have appeared over the last month are highly suspicious. The guy who wrote that the hotel is right on Wenceslas Square has obviosuly never been there, the hotel is actually near Old Town Square. And to say the breakfast was good is an even bigger fantasy - the stale bread and coffee, a few pieces of cheese and lunch meat, and orange colored sugar water could not possibly qualify as good by anyone's strandards. Our biggest complaints were that the bathrooms are closet sized, our room was extremely hot and noisy at night, and the service was severely lacking.
Great weekend at U Tri Bubnu
Just returned from a weekend in Prague staying at U Tri Bubnu. The hotel is in a wonderful 15th century building bang in the middle of the city right by Wenceslas Square. We stayed in a fantastic room with a traditional wooden beam ceiling, spacious and light, comfortable beds and clean en suite bathroom. Breakfast was good and the staff on reception really helpful and friendly. If we're back in Prague, we'll definately return.

At The Three Drums
We just got back from Prague. Spent 6 nitghts in a fabulous double room with a view of the square F. Kafka ( room # 3 ). The room was spacious and clean. Tereza and Domenica at the reception desk were so wonderfully helpful. Definitely great location!
Thank you Ivona for arranging our trips ( Karlstejn Castle, Terezin ) and airport transfers.
We definitely will recommend you to our friends.
All the best,
Alan & Mary Ann
At the Three Drums !!!
I just returned from Prague after spending 3 nights at the Three Drums. I have no words to express the pleasure I had. The hotel, was more than GREAT !!!, clean, nice service, and the....... location! I could imagine how good the location was. I couldn´t ask for better place. I´m most grateful for the quality of service I got from you picking the right place to be for a decant PRICE. No doubt, I will recommend anyone who is traveling Prague to work with you.
Stayed 5 nights in June 2004. Great location, just off (not on) Old Town Square. The noise didn't bother us, but if it's warm and you need to keep the windows open, I could see how the the very loud early morning garbage collection and the late night drunks from the square might be a problem. Breakfast was awful (but the Brazilian restaurant next door that they served breakfast in had incredble dinners!) The bathroom was severely cramped. The ledges outside the windows were covered with garbage and bird droppings and looked like they hadn't been cleaned for years. The courtyard that provided the view was messy and full of trash. Some of the towels were not very clean, and one of the pillows had no pillow case. No waste basket in the room. The girls at the front desk were very nice. However, when we left, an unexplained extra $32 had been added to our bill. They do not provide an invoice, and talked in circles until I wore out and decided for this amount it was not worth further arguing. Excellent car service to the airport was arranged at a reasonable price.
We loved this place
Very enjoyable stay for our honeymoon. Absolutly best location - walking distance from all the interesting sights. The room was spacious and the beds very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
U Tri Bubnu (Three Drums)
Brilliant location, virtually in the Old Square and the Astronomical Clock. Right next to St Nicholas Church. Very clean but basic rooms. No dressing table or mirror in room. Mirror in bathroom which could make it tricky for blowdrying your hair. No waste paper bin in room which was a real pain. Continental brekkie basic, we found somewhere for bacon and eggs after the first day. The major problem with this hotel is NOISE! The toilets have macerators and everytime someone in nearby rooms flush, the noise is awful especially during the night and early morning. Also the ceilings are beamed and you can hear every noise from the rooms above. I never got a full night sleep. Prague's beautiful though!
