Prague Hotel Review – Hilton Prague, Comfort and Convenience for Families
Hilton Prague was a wonderful hotel for our stay in the Golden City last summer. This huge and modern Prague hotel is located in the business district and is popular with river cruisers. However, it also offers plenty of amenities and convenience for other travelers including families.
Hilton Prague wasn’t located by the popular Old Town area, but it was very close to the centrally-located and well-connected Florenc Metro Station. It was also about two blocks from the Florenc central bus station. This worked out for us since we arrived via a three-hour bus ride from Munich.
We walked through an adjacent shopping center with grocery stores and other retailers to get to the subway station. The tram stop was around this area too. You could also do a leisurely 20-minute walk to the Old Town area. If you wanted personalized service, there were plenty of taxis outside the hotel lobby too.
There aren’t many European hotels that accept a party of four in one room, but this Prague hotel is one of them! Our room was bright and spacious with two queen beds. It was well-equipped with plenty of amenities that made our five-night stay comfortable. Our room had a balcony that faced out into the atrium. It wasn’t the most ideal view compared to rooms with river views, but my kids enjoyed viewing the atrium.
We loved the special touches that included bathrobes, slippers and complimentary bottled water. The bathrooms were big with both a shower and a tub.
The large atrium and glass roof gave it a very bright atmosphere. The Executive floors had their own check-in and concierge desk, which helped us bypass often busy lobby. There were staff present during most hours of the day and they were very helpful in answering our questions. The Executive Lounge was one of the biggest we’ve seen and was usually fully stocked with diverse drinks, food and snacks.
For convenience, there was an ATM downstairs to get local currency. We were also able to buy subway tickets at their souvenir store downstairs.
My kids loved relaxing in the full-sized, indoor, heated pool after a full day of sightseeing. Jacuzzis, saunas and a solarium for tanning were also on-site. There was a small outdoor area, which was a pleasant surprise. Guests can try the outdoor climbing wall or kids can enjoy the whimsical sculptures.
The two-story gym was huge! I almost regretted not using the state-of-the-art facility. But, with all the walking we did, we decided not to bring gym clothes. For those who want some pampering, the beauty salon and Prague spa offered plenty of services. We even found a small playroom area near the gym.
The hotel has a casino, three restaurants and two bars on site. We mostly ate at the Prague Restaurant with an international buffet breakfast downstairs. They had a great variety of food that satisfied everyone in the family and started our day right.
For a sampling of Czech cuisine, there was CzecHouse Grill & Rotisserie by the lobby that we sadly didn’t get to try. We also briefly checked out the rooftop Cloud 9 Sky Bar & Lounge. The views of Prague here, especially at night, were stunning.
It’s not surprising that this hotel has won many accolades. The facilities and amenities were fantastic. The staff were courteous, gracious and spoke great English. It’s a plus for many of us who couldn’t grasp the Czech language.
Hilton Prague made our stay in the city even more memorable. This was one hotel we highly recommend when traveling to Prague with kids and one we’d love to stay at again.
