How to Get There
I just spent a few nights at the Budha Bar hotel in Prague. I will start describing my experience and then explain the good and the bad.
The entrance is underwhelming, the building isn’t anything special from the outside, but I still thought that the interiors will be special. But unfortunately the lobby is basically a small desk. No Budha bar feeling to it, no music, no scent. The corridors of the hotel again doesn’t have any music too which was a feature that I anticipated. Quite strange to be honest and a major disappointment given that you are at the hotel for a specific ambience, the music!
I arrived at around 6pm and the complimentary car picked me on time with a very nice car.
The room itself is beautiful. Very spacious and beautiful. The bed isn’t very comfortable . The mattress was hard actually. The bed frame is larger that the mattress edge, so watch out on hitting ur toes by mistake- this I found was impractical-. So is the side tables, the bottom is larger than the top. Watch out! Housekeeping was good, very friendly and professional too., but hit and miss. Once they forgot to wash the cups and refill the coffee capsules and once they are Immaculate. I also was not happy with the duvet on one of the days as it felt overused.
There is a nespresso machine in the room and they even offer tea capsules which work on the same machine. Never seen this before!
Every afternoon from 3.30 till 8 they offer for hotel guests complimentary drinks and snacks. I liked the fruits and apple pastry.
On the the night of arrival, I wanted to go out at around 10.30pm , I asked where can I go for dinner. I was told at the reception that everything was closed now and that there are barely some fastfood and kebab stores open. I thought I will go and check So I asked for direction to the main square and check. I was surprised to see that allllll the cafes and restaurants are actually open in the main square. Quite misleading for a reception of a 5 star hotel. Did they not know that everything was open?
Anyway, the hotel is indeed extremely central but still quiet. A mix that is often hard to get.
Other staff members were very helpful in arranging restaurant reservations or making tour bookings. I asked for a late check out on the departure date and it was offered at no cost.
The door of Budha bar restaurant was open, make use of it and have some music to attract customers.
In summary, there is so much potential in this hotel to make it a real Budha Bar brand match. I don’t see it as 5 star standard the way it is. I really hope that the management considers it to live up to the name of the brand.
We have been to this hotel many times,love it! So central! Very cumfy beds etc..rain shower,large bath! All low lighting with Buddha music in the background.A luxury hotel in Prague!! Very romantic!! Very large beds.
A centrally located hotel at a walking distance for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants etc. manned by well mannered staff and good room service. Very well spread breakfast is served between 7.00 - 11.00 am everyday.
