How to Get There
The Hotel is located in the middle of Old town. The entrance to the hotel is thru the Restaurant, this is a bit odd, there’s no elevator, and the rooms has very thin wall. You could hear your neighbors talk. It’s not a 5 star hotel, we were missing shower gel, shampoo etc and at a 5 star hotel they usually inspect the room twice. A big plus is the awesome restaurant in the basement, that’s worth a visit! The staff was friendly and they served breakfast in the room every morning. The room was big , but we didn’t feel privacy in our room. Next time we might book a real hotel . This hotel has charm, but lacking on the top score.
Booked a two night stay at this wonderful boutique hotel right on the square. Access the hotel through the White Horse Restaurant & Bar. At the back of the restaurant you will find a gated entry. This is a nice feature as it keeps non hotel guests out of the hotel. The hotel begins on the second floor. There are no lifts (elevators) and the hotel share's the building with permanent residents. The hotel staff met us at the other end of the square to carry our bags as the taxi could not drive directly up to the hotel.
Our room was very large (Jr. Suite, #20) and had fab views of the square including all its sites, sounds, smells etc.. Since bars and restaurants line the square, very loud late night frivolity will float up into the room unless you close the double windows and draw the blackout curtains. Apparently it's common place for the bars to stay open until 6 AM and the square is filled with the obviously overserved. Prague is bachelor party central catering to roving herds of highly inebriated males.
Room was furnished with large sofa, coffee table, plenty of work space and a small dining table with 3 chairs. King bed was uber comfortable (firm) with flat pillows and individual duvets. TV was too small for the room and hard to see from anywhere in the room. I don't believe it's much bigger than my office computer monitor. However cable service offered plenty of channels - local and international selections. Mini bar featured all the necessary items needed. However i would recommend purchasing larger water bottles from the mini market just a few steps away. Bath room was the only real negative and could benefit from some logistical updates. Bathtub with shower wand is very deep and difficult to get in and out of. Use plenty of caution as there are no grab bars or non-slip mats. Hand held shower wand is located at 3 feet so you are on your own to create an overhead shower experience by holding high. There are no shelves to place personal toiletries and the towel shelf in tub area was broken. Bath amenities were basic - nothing fancy. Would recommend management install a higher bracket for shower wand and install a shelf above sink for personal toiletries. Rooms do not have irons or ironing boards.
Staff was polite and helpful. I recommend booking their driver for airport pickup and return. Starbucks is a few steps away as is the best Thai foot massage parlor anywhere. Location of hotel is perfect for great sightseeing and the old city is a walker's paradise. I recommend booking (online) a 24 hour Hop On/Off bus ticket to navigate the greater city. Purple and Red Lines will take you to great destinations outside of the old city. Better than cabs. Uber is in town and is a good alternative to cabs but be careful getting in the wrong car. All in all a nice experience at the OTSH. Look for my other reviews of restaurants, Hop On tours etc.
Looking for an easy solution in Prague, we found this hotel because of location to the Square, special price from ( SAS ) and a balcony overlooking the square - PERFECT !
On arrival, the hotel put us in a family room, but on showing my reservation, they accepted our requiement for the one & only balcony, for the hotel.
It seemed that the actual room was under renovation so the next day we move over to our balcony room, and was given a bottle of champagne.
This hotel is exactly what we expected & required, very easy access to Charles Bridge, local markets, shopping & of course direct view to the town hall Clock.
In Prague, this is a MUST SEE site--along with a few thousand of your nearest and dearest! At times (about 15 minutes to every hour to see the clock Astronomical show) it is almost impossible to get through the square, or walk to on the narrow passageways to the Charles Bridge. By the way, the passageways are genuine "calf paths" that have been clobestoned over--it is very easy to get a little disoriented because there are few "long views" to pick out landmarks! We stopped to window shop one of the 2 only unique shops in the area and mistakenly took the wrong street....15 minutes later, we landed back in the same spot!
The square in full of great architecture, friendly people, "sameo/sameo shops (all with similar merchandise--which we also saw in other cities on the tour. We were told that there are a small number of people that control the stores and products offered.), restaurants/bars, Kodak Moments, some fun street performers, and numerous churches. The good news is that there are no cars in most of the areas. It is "on the way to everything" so, you will have ample opportunity to see it a few times.
There seems to be activity here at all hours. The restaurants and bars are open as well as many of the shops. Wear comfortable shoes because the cobble stones can be a little rough. If you get tired, there are ample places to get a drink and relax! Have local currency to use the public restrooms--the restaurants/bars have free restrooms for patrons.
stunning great place such a beautiful square so breathtaking but the city is so beautiful with all those beautiful buildings and the clock great meeting place shops and bistros all around with some market stalls and the students dressed as statues great atmostphere
