Superb Hotel!! A review of Crowne Plaza Hotel Prague
Having surfed the web for reviews of hotel without luck. What a magnificent hotel! A very luxurious hotel with a stunning marble floor reception. Bedrooms are of standard decoration but are very clean. The hotel incorporates Gym, sauna etc... After reading bad reports about private taxis we opted for the hotel transportation service to and from the hotel priced at 550CKZ each way per car, we were greeted at the arrival lounge by a chauffer...well worth it!! But I'm sure you could travel for less if you opt for a private taxi. For a relaxing drink following a long day of sight seeing and shopping the lobby bar incorporates a pianist playing a wide range of music...great!
The hotel is situated outside of main centre of Prague 1, but with the tram and bus station directly outside, travel is no problem. Tickets are very cheap at 12CKZ which is valid for a 60min period once validated. They are readily available from most shops, hotels. We bought 3 or 4 tickets at the same time so we would have to worry about tickets for the return journey. The tickets allow you to travel on all public forms of transport including the underground tube. The main underground station is about 15-20min walk or 2-3mins on the tram (Dejvicka on the A line). All major attractions i.e. the castle, old town sq etc... are available via the underground network.
The hotel is within the residential area of Prague and subsequently there are only a few restaurants to choose from; however I can recommend the Pizzeria located near the circle and the Cantonese.
