Different from a normal hotel, and we loved it A review of Mamaison Suite Hotel Pachtuv Palace Prague
Pachtuv has now been open for 1.5 years. From the room we were in, we thought we were the first to stay in it, as it was in excellent condition.
Pachtuv is no ordinary hotel. From the moment you walk in you are not met with a large scale reception, but instead a low key, plush entrance hall with welcoming desk. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. For example, we were offered complimentary tea and coffee when we returned to the hotel following our last day in Prague, even though we had checked out that morning.
To get to the rooms, often requires going outside into a courtyard. The old part of the Palace is full of history. Rooms are individual in nature, so this review could differ from other reviews when comparing facilities. The room we were allocated included, hall, kitchen, large living area, four poster bed and large bathroom. There was double glazed windows, which reduced the noise from outside (we were in the old "original part" of the hotel).
The rooms tastefully balance, old style (high ceiling, large chandiler) with new, (under floor bathroom heating, large modern sinks etc). We found the bed to be extremely comfortable.
The location of the hotel is second to none for tourists, being no more than 3 minute walk to Charles Bridge (you see the hotel from the bridge), 3 minutes to the National Theatre, and 2 minutes to the old centre and 10 minutes walk from the main shopping area.
The one negative for the hotel is its breakfast area and the breakfast. As an apartment hotel the breakfast area is small, and we found the breakfast selection disappointing.
Overall however we would be more than happy to revisit this excellent establishment and would recommend it for a hotel experience that is a little different from the ordinary upper tier hotels you could choose to stay in.
