Excellent location, conveniently located but a quiet neighbourhood. The staff at the reception could be a bit cold some time.
Room had impeccable cleaniness and everything was in a very nice contemporary design. Bed was excellent and so was air conditioning. Hotel location was good and my attic room was very quiet. Breakfast buffet was ok by Scandinavian standards, excellent by any other standards. However, there were no fresh vegetables available, only sautéed. Small minus for the lack of trouser press, but staff gave a steam iron instead.
The wifi connection was really slow in room 15. I was surprised I had to pay for newspapers or print a document
the style of the building outside. location in Lesser town, very convenient go up Prague Castle. the furry blankets/rugs. these collect dust. I suggest you do colored cloths instead for accent & not fur. people have allergies. Breakfast can be improved on.
I've stayed in many 5* hotels all over the world but this hotel is definitely my new favourite. Upon arrival my girlfriend and I were offered a free room upgrade and not only that we were asked to go and choose our room out of a choice of 3. I have never been given the opportunity to actually pick my room before in any hotel I have stayed in. This was my first time visiting Prague and the welcoming staff at this hotel definitely made this trip one to remember! The hotel itself is also in a perfect location with both the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle just literally minutes away from the hotel. I really couldn't recommend this hotel enough.
Marvellous interior decoration, spacious, quite room, central locatio;n.
Location, internet access Staff could have been more friendly
Hotel staff was excellent and very accommodating to our requests. The hotel is clean, modern, quiet, and has an above average restaurant. However, like the other reviews mentioned, you see few people in the hotel or restaurant. We were the only couple in the entire restaurant. I would recommend this hotel to others, especially if you are looking for a modern room in this old, historic city.
Everything was perfect, the room, service and staff. I wouldn't fault anything at all, and wouuld definitely return.
Cleaness, being new and style None, maybe does not having a swimming pool
Great location. Super quiet and very close to the charles bridge Very friendly staff. Very nice rooms. Good breakfast My wife and I had a great stay over the week end.
ambiance and staff
excelent location, beautifully decorated hotel, spacious room, excellent service, good selection of food for breakfast
From the welcoming smile to the opulance of the, to the location every thing was perfect. If you want to spoil your wife/partner this is the place.
Although the hotel looks great in its website - the pictures actually don't do it justice. It is a fabulous little jewel of a hotel tucked away in the best part of fantastic Prague. Senior staff are very good. The pool is tiny and cold; and the service, especially in the spa, is a bit hit and miss - my wife made a manicure appointment which was not fulfilled and poorly handled.
Excellent environment feeling like home with very personal service Not enough room provisions like bottled water etc.
Helpful staff, great breakfast Very small room for the price
I like the location of this hotel - in Mala strana. Also the SPA-center in this hotel is very nice. It's real pleasure to visit it.
The Alchymist is a lovely luxury hotel with very attentive staff and beautiful decor that really suits the prague experience. I chose not to use the spa as the services are really quite expensive.
This is a luxury hotel and priced accordingly. Everything about the place is first class. The decor is beautiful from the rooms to the reception to the lounges, breakfast room and exterior. The staff is efficient and very helpful. The whole place is comfortable. Nothing to dislike.
The Alchymist is a beautiful boutique hotel, perfectly positioned for all of Prague's attractions. The staff were the best we have experienced, polite, extremely helpful & informative. The Alchymist made our holiday a most memorable one. Thanks
Everything. Beautiful view of the city from the restaurant. Quiet neighborhood away from traffic. Helpful staff. Excellent location. Beautiful surrounding gardens.
The magnificent views,excellent food and comfort of room are only exceeded by the friendliness and attentiveness of all staff. what a wonderfull experience our stay at the golden well was!
personal attention, uniqueness of the hotel
The very friendly service, reception, bellman, maid service. The location, quiet and with great view of the old city.
Stunning service, attention to detail and involvement of management in day to day operations. Cuisine is excellent and breakfast an experience in itself.
jacuzzi bath, welcome drink, view whilst eating breakfat, food at breakfast, friendly staff
All Staff is very kindly.A view from Restrant is so beautiful.Morning Meal is Delisious. ジャグジーが使えなかった。説明書を見たが動作がしなかった。
Terrific helpful desk clerks and a very nice room. Excellent location
We enjoyed a beautiful view of the rooftops of Prague in a spacious suite, only steps away from the Castle. The hotel staff was gracious and professional, and the restaurant was memorable.
Very nice hotel, clean, comfortable, and great experience overall. The staff is not terribly knowledgeable of the city or making recommendations for dining, train transfers, etc.
Very good hotel.
The staff were very welcoming, and extremely professional. An unusual feature of this hotel is the supply of an ipod for use in your room, and a large cd library with a huge range - I only looked at the classical cds as that's my interest and the selection is impressive. The hotel guests also have access to a beautiful baroque-era garden at the rear of the hotel, it's the oldest of its kind in Prague. The hotel's roof terrace provides amazing rooftop views of Prague while enjoying excellent cuisine and a well-chosen wine list.
Impeccable service, outstanding staff, great music/movie selection for free
Location was great. In general service was good. The idea of the music theme is unique.The gardens at the back of the hotel are beautiful. The view at the rooftop garden restaurant is excellent. The gym is sufficient Stereo and DVD system could be improved in the room as it wasn't fully functional on arrival.. Poor wireless reception and only in the lobby. Euo wasps frequent the rooftop garden restaurant. Were going to eat at the rooftop garden restaurant but cancelled as we had a drink there in the afternoon and was served a curdled ice coffee by a female who made excuses but no apologies.
The efforts of the staff to create a pleasant atmosphere. The amenities that the hotel provides: an excellent breakfast in an attractive dining room; comfortable rooms; and a good location for access to the city's sights.
The service from all staff was above anything I have encountered. It was too close to the US embassy, its less than 150 meters from the embassy.
Good location, nice roof terrace The double beds have only one comforter. Two have two (smaller ones)would make a big difference. The suite was spacious, but had no view at all.
personal does everything to make you feel comfertable -
The location was excellent and dinner on the roof terrace is worth doing. The gym has good equipment and has nice views of the garden.
The concierge was very friendly and helpful. She made excellent recommendations. The breakfast is really wonderful and was included with our room rate. Also, the attached gardens are beautiful and provide a great view of the city. Great location. The hotel car is probably not a good value; although, the city taxis should be avoided.
The room size and design far exceeded our expectations. The breakfast buffet was quite nice as well. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Big and comfortable rooms. Excellent location. No place for parking.
A very good hotel, very nice rooms, not the largest but what they lack in size they more then make up for in character. Much much nicer to stop inthen a bland "chain" hotel. Breakfast very good also.
Location is good, however parking is not. Only have a couple of spots out front (Not free) and not secured. Breakfast was a good typical European fare. Get there before 0900 if you want a place to sit! Hotel was clean for its age and staff spoke English were friendly.
great location, friendly staff, breakfast small tv
Location, close the city centre. Old-style design and antique castle-type rooms. Staff is very nice. Visitors should previouly contact the staff on the room location. Several of them are at the noise street.
breakfast, internet, location,
The rooms were large and richly decorated. Our suite was located in another building ( which apparently is a part of the Waldstein complex) but I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in the city center of Prague
I was able to get awqay from the main tourist areas for a quiet night. It was ideally situated between the old city and the castle. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing at all!
Great location, good breakfast, nice clean room with character and fairly big for Europe. Reasonable price.
Location was excellent, lots of character.
style, comfort and surroundings a bit dull breakfast
The hotel is extremely well located, at a 7min walk fron Prague's Castle. in a very quiet and beatiful area. The building is very elegant and the decor as well. Our room was hugue! And the breakfast was delicious and served in a incredible attic!!! Front desk service always attentive and nice, Daniel helped us a lot. Definitely a must hotel in Prague!!!
I travel extensively and the Appia is one of my favorite hotels. I felt so comfortable, safe and well cared for by your friendly staff. In particular the large size of my room, the terrace and windows and doors with fresh air, the cleanliness, and the wonderful breakfast. Your staff is knowledgeable and genuinely friendly and well trained. I also love the quiet location. We traveled in Europe for a month and the Appia was our favorite hotel.
The tranquility of the hotel and helpful and friendly staff
Particularly, the position of the room with a terrace and how quiet it was. The room was also nice and large. We would suggest that you put in a shower screen so that people are able to use the shower facilities without making the floor wet!
A quiet side street within 2 minutes of the main walk up to the Castle. felt almost Tuscan in feel. Breakfast room very atmospheric. Bedroom (Double) excellent; large, v-comfortable. None of the 6 hotels I have stayed in in Prague have had great pillows so the Apia beat them all. Czech breakfast buffets are not that exciting in terms of fresh fruit. Apia's was average.
The ultra-quiet location in a lovely neighborhood. Near enough to the attractions to be able to go on foot but far enough so that we didn't feel we were in touristville. Our double room turned out to be two rooms, which made it very comfortable. The fact that the feel of Appia Residences is "homey" rather than "hotelly", which might not be appreciated by travellers who want a hotel with a lobby and bar and room service, but was perfect for our tastes. In general, we were perfectly satisfied. The only minor problem we had was the difficultly in the bathtub of changing the flow of water from tap to shower head. Also the rooms, while pleasant and comfortable, could use a touch of decoration on the walls.
Excellent location, friendly atmosphere
The staff are friendly The pictures of the room were taken like 20 years ago and that's probably when it looked like this. It's old, falling apart and not comfortable. On more specific points: could hardly make the shower work, it also had no curtain; the floor is dirty to the point where it makes no use to clean it, needs replacing; TV - smallest screen possible so you can't really watch it except standing close; 10 euros for 24h internet, I've seen far cheaper hotels who did not try to make money on this; bed sheets are clean but also had to be replaced at least an year ago, the breakfast was quite poor as well.
good price,Quiet location and clean and spacious room.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was excellent, very large, clean and warm. Breakfast was good with a nice selection of cold dishes and some hot food.
This place was immaculate. Great location.
Fantastic Room. Great Location -both for being able to walk to all main sights and for evening bars and restaurants (although people under 30years old may find too quiet) No (if knit picking, then choice of hot breakfast options could have been better - although cold choice was extensive and of good quality)
very big rooms, perfect bathroom, clean, perfect location in a quiet neighborhood close to the old town.
Quiet and smart.
Privacy, easy access, quality of staff no
the room is very nice.the location is so good.valued for money.. they did not turn on the heater in the morning,so it is really cold and even the water in the bathroom is so cold
Second time we stayed there. Excellent service and room this time too. Very good location. We will gladly come back some other time.
The hotels close proximity to the us Embassy meant we all felt really safe as a large police presence was obvious. Great location in a quiet part of the city. a few really nice restaurants really close by. loved it!!! Nothing
Rooms extremly large (almost like an apartment), very close to the Hradschin and Charles' Bridge, no noises from the streets, kind service, wireless internett in the rooms, two tvs (German channels), good & fairly cheap shuttle service to the train stations Rooms a bit noisy (we could hear noises from the other rooms), breakfast plain, but nothing special, we didn't get a double bed although we requested it.
Great location next to Prague castle. Good views down towards Charles bridge
Fabulous vista over all of Prague, location on street right beneath Castle. Lovely old hotel with central skylight, spacious room. Bath tub was pretty but hard to use vs shower. Breakfast was just ok. Wi-fi in room did not work.
Work at Lobkowicz Palace at Prague Castle, so convenient and wonderful views from my room over Prague. Service efficient and staff friendly.
The hotel in general was but excellent, bearing in mind that we shared the famous room 33. However, the final bill was not structured well enough and only after reviewing it I found out to my upleasant surprise that they had charged an extra day of parking. Nevertheless, this stain is nothing to overall splendour the hotel and above all the city of Prague can offer to a visitor. See the issue of the bill as written above.
The hotel is beautiful and very close to the castle. Staff was helpful and polite. It was difficult to reach by car. The parking lot is not on-site but there's a valet service.
The location was perfect. Beautiful view of the city. Very close to Prague Castle. Breakfast included was excellent!
The style and design, location, quaint old world yet nice amentities, being in the heart of that part of Prague. Rooms were so sweet, the open style of the windows, the view of the amazing street. Comfortable and accommodating No
We were on the top floor. Nice and quiet. Standards very high. Staff great. Location excellent for a tourist (near castle). Young party-goers might want to be in the Old Town or New Town instead.
Beautuful building, beautiful and big room, friendly receptionist staff, ("Superior Doppelzimmer mit Blick auf die Prager Burg") 1st floor 59EUR/night. Room has beautiful view down the Nerudova str. but also gets a lot of sun in the morning and heats up quickly. I left the curtains closed during the day (when we left) to at least try to prevent this, but they were closed after the room was cleaned, even after I asked at the reception the second day that they be left as they are. (but it was only two days, so story ends here). I would not take this room in the summer again, since I like to get up late and cant sleep if its too warm. There is a ventilator though. Also curtains could be thicker (for my taste, too much light gets through in the early morning).
Room was bigger than expected and desk staff were very helpful. Hotel was quiet despite busy area. Had some difficulty getting a receipt and when I did it was rounded off and in Czech currency.
the hotel was very convenient and very comfortable. the shower was good too. The bar closed early at 10
Breakfast was absolutely delicious. Our time in the spa was definitely worth it--only two at a time, felt so luxurious. The rooms were very comfortable. A lovely restaurant (inexpensive!) is just up the road. Wonderful service and staff. No hair conditioner was provided. Couldn't figure out the laptop, but we also didn't ask for help with it so it's our own fault really...
design, afternoon tea, laptop in the room bed is not so comfortable as it looks like
Fabulous hotel in a great location with friendly staff. It was my husband's birthday and they gave us a bottle of wine as a gift on the day which was a really nice touch. It was a 10 minute walk to St Charles Bridge and also located close to the castle. There were air fresheners in all the communal areas - smelled nice but very strong and if you have asthma or allergies then this won't be comfortable.
Great location in quiet area just a few steps from Hrad and Karl's Bridge. Fantastic design, friendly atmosphere, 5 o'clock tea, first class breakfast. This will be our hotel for the next visits to Prague.
Location was very good - close to centre but fairly quiet Headroom over bed in our loft room caused an accident.
The hotel was in a perfect, safe location. The hotel itself was very retro and very trendy. The staff were very polite and attentive. There was nothing to dislike.
Breakfast and afternoon tea were great, atmosphere in hotel was very welcoming and relaxed, beds very comfy Room wasnt perfectly clean when we arrived but it was fine
The Design Hotel Sax has an eclectic feel to it. I enjoyed all of the little idiosyncrasies incorporated in it design. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. I would definitley recommend the hotel to anyone.
Great location - close to sites but far enough away to be quiet. 5 Minutes from major bus stop. Great free breakfast includes made to order hot items. Free 5 pm tea time an extra bonus. We had interior room with no widown and the room was too hot - pay the extra bit to get a window!
stylish and exceptional place to stay that really enhanced our stay in Prague. The Hotel is a real asset to the city ! I know that should I return to Prague- I will always stay there from now on ...... I appreciate that the Spa part of the hotel has only just started up but more info on the services offered would of been helpful.
easy to get to with GPS,attentive staff,great breakfast omelet,great for viewig castle and monastery,(best view in Prague from monastery garden) free laptop in room liked it!
the bedroom was devine four poster bed very romantic for what we wanted location was fine because we didnt mind walking nobody disturbed us or interfered with our privacy i liked the quietness of this hotel our room was accross the street breakfast lovely i think a bath would be an improvement i would have loved a bath in the bathroom this would enhance the room and the whole experience we had booked a deluxe room and bathrobes were in the list of facilities but none were provided for us at all during our stay
Unfortunately they didn't have our reservation down for 3 nights but were able to accomodate us nonetheless.
Nice room, good location. Booking.com advertised the room with a-c and internet, and it did not have it. It was 39degrees in Prague without even a fan in the room. I specified that I needed a room with working A-C too.
Room was warm and clean. Quite spacious for the money Pity the Bistro did not stay open early evening
Hotel made a taxi reservation on my behalf to pick us up at the airport, the meet and greet was not at the airport, after waiting 25 minutes I made alternative arrangement to get to the hotel. There was no offer to carry our bags up to the room, we were put in the top floor room and I have a bad back. The room safe was not functioning. This was reported but not rectified during our stay.
Good location. Nice friendly staff. Clean large rooms.Good value for money. It would of been nice to have tea/coffee making facilities in the hotel rooms.
The location of the hotel was perfect for us. I have to say that the hotel is on the top of a hill so it's quit a hike after being a whole day on your feet. Our room had a nice view. The rooms are good, a bit warm but you can turn the heater down. Excellent taxi service from and to the airport. The only think I can come up with is that the towels were not changed for 6 days. But then again, I didn't really asked for new ones either.
the location was close to the Castle and only a 20 min walk to the city centre As with alot of the hotels in prague - no tea/coffee making facility
Te rooms was very beautiful and bed was very comfortable.
Beautiful room within fantastic building, in nice quiet location just under Prague Castle and 15 min walk to Charles Bridge - couldn't be better. A very minor thing - no tea/coffee making facilities in the room - but that's just cos we're British and do miss our tea!
Good location, helpful staff. Weather forecasts and free English-language newspapers at breakfast were nice touches.
Monika was awesome at the reception desk. She was incredibly helpful, as was John. Didn't like the narrow stairs up to my room...
Great breakfast Noisy room
new part of this hotel has very nice style and design some of the staff wasnt very friendly and helpfull, but generally they were OK
The rooms are amazingly decorated I was given a room at the end of the hotel and just going and coming from/to my room is an adventure it self The breakfast is nice Location is perfect, though it is located just next to the castel you will still need to walk upwards to which may be a problem for aged people Walking up to the hotel is quite exhusting Price varise alot, early bookings saves you minimum 50 euro a night
location ; comfort ; design ; staff hospitality and efficiency Noise in the corridors during the night ; no spa neither swimming pool
The reception staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel's airport shuttle functioned perfect. The room (superior) was both clean and nice decorated, and the breakfast was tasteful. The location in Nerudova was great, and the street itself a beautiful adventure
This hotel was located in the older part of Prague right under the castle, with convenient access to the castle and gardens. This hotel is comprised of several different adjacent connecting buildings, which meant we needed to take an elevator up one floor, then go up and down several stair cases to get to our room. With luggage this was not convenient, but thankfully we are still young and this wasn't a major problem. Also, our room was right at street level, so we couldn't open the windows for ventilation as people could see right in, and it was a little noisy for sleeping. (I imagine this wouldn't be a problem for the majority of rooms at this hotel)
Location was great, good value, and good breakfast. No air conditioning, so it could be uncomfortable in hot weather. The hotel was designed so it looked beautiful, but in practical terms, it was a little uncomfortable - the rooms were small and the shower (while beautifully designed) flooded the vanity and toilet with water.
It was quiet due to the zone where it is located. Breakfast was a bit poor
The design of the rooms were really really interesting. I loved how the building itself was like a little town in itself with little narrow walkways and cobbled areas. We had the best service by reception - I think her name was Mariona... she was from Tunisia and was lovely, fast, efficient and super-friendly. She made us love the hotel more. The bath is exposed, so it's impossible to have a shower while your partner is trying to sleep. We found the rooms a little dim too.
