I booked this hotel because of the previous reviews.
Stayed for 4 nights. Average temp was 24-27C..absolutely brill.....
We took the pre-booked shuttle which was on time.
(If u had time and wanted to take a cheaper mode of transport from airport to the hotel, then take bus 119 and then u can get the metro to hotel.)
Dont change money at the airport, ....the hotel also changes money but the rate was worse than airport.
I changed at the bank CSOB in the town centre rate was excellent and no commission.
The hotel doesnt look like the photos maybe an older version.
When we arrived I walked into the casino next door by mistake couldnt tell where the hotel entrance was.lol
We were given a room on the 6th floor, all hotel guests are on the 6th floor. (elevator only goes to the 6th floor) ......All room numbers on this floor was in the 700s.
The hotel was clean and the receptionist was polite.
Check in was easy.
Keycard entry for the rooms and to use the elevator.
The room was big, two single beds with clean sheets.
The bed was comfortable.
There was an LCD TV with most channels not in English..... the usual 2 english news channels were CNN AND BBC.
A frigde with a full minibar was available.
Cups and a kettle were provided but NO tea or coffee, this could be purchased at reception for 5 CZK and milk and sugar for 2 CZK.
Room had a safe and the free wifi was great.
The bathroom was big with a shower just like in the pictures.
It appeared clean but there was mold on the plastic bits....I hate mold in the shower!!!!
The shower was powerful but the shower holder on the wall wasnt holding the shower head securely and it kept falling off the wall while showering.
There was a small bar of soap and some sachets of shampoo/body wash which was replaced on 2 of the 4 days only. Not sure why it wasnt replaced everyday? maybe because she saw that we brought our own.
On the last day when the room was cleaned the cleaner left a wet towel on the floor of the shower and the hand towels we got was torn...very odd.
Saying that the towel that were left on the previous days was clean and smelt good.
We had a balcony with views of the bus station but we could see the St Peter/Paul church in the distance.
This was a great balcony as it didnt face the sun so we could sit outside in the afternoons without sun in our faces......we were in room 731.
The hotel was non smoking but we got a constant smell of smoke in the corridors.
Breakfast started from 7-10am. Large breakfast room. There were a couple of birds in a cage which added to the atmosphere of the restaurant.
We were really excited to go for breakfast from the previous reviews but I was slightly disappointed.
Having said that the breakfast was ok for me, scrambled eggs and fried eggs available.
There were cereals and cheese,ham and yogourt.
The fruits included oranges and apples............. and they very old and bruised.
The cucumbers and tomatoes were not fresh at all except on the 3rd morning....
There was machine juices and coffee which was ok.
There was also what looked like meatballs but I didnt try that.
The metro entrance was literally outside the hotel lol.
Which was a good thing.
We got all day travel cards(CZK 110) but I recon if you plan your journeys well...... u can just get away with two 24CZK tickets each.
There is a big mall, Nový Smíchov 100m from the hotel. As u exit the hotel turn left and u can see it at the end of the street.
There is a food court at the top floor, good food.
Also a Big Tesco supermarket.
Even though the hotel is located close to the bus station, we could hear cars at night but it wasnt that loud and it didnt affect our sleep.......
I was worried about the hotel as it didnt look safe at night but we had no problems.
There was police visible constantly.....which made me feel safe.
We didnt have dinner at the hotel.
But try Restaurant Zlaty Klas, opposite the Ibis. Good food.
All in all.......I had a good holiday and I slept well.....sure the alcohol before bed helped lol.......only a few issues we had with this hotel........
For the price we paid I would say this hotel is a little better than average.
So if u looking for a basic budget clean hotel in a quiet but centrally located hotel this is it for u.
