We stayed at the Corinthia Towers Hotel in Prague for three nights while visiting. The hotel is supposed to be a 5-star hotel, but is only a 4-star by American standards. I also thought that the hotel was a bit "cheap" - for example, they wanted 350 Kc per person, per day to use the pool! That's almost an extra $25 per person. In-room movies were also expensive, costing 380 Kc each. The toilet paper was also of a very poor quality - similar to newspaper.

The first non-smoking room that we checked into smelled like smoke. We later discovered that it was the pillows and towels that smelled. I'm not sure if they weren't changed, or if they were changed, but maybe they were changed by someone who saturated them with smoke, first. Regardless, it was very unpleasant to have pillows that smelled like smoke. We tried to switch rooms, but the hotel didn't have any comparable rooms available. After spending one night in the room, we decided to accept a downgrade to a room with two smaller beds. The hotel didn't offer us any compensation for the inconvenience. The beds are also small by American standards. Their single bed rooms only had a queen-sized bed, and the double bed rooms only had twin-sized beds.

The room itself was quite nice - it was a 4-star quality room, with nice furniture and a nice bathroom. The bathroom also had radio music, which was a nice touch.

The hotel was located very close to the Vysehrad subway stop (on the Prague Subway red line). It's literally just outside the hotel door - approximately 20m away from the hotel entrance. If you don't feel like taking the subway, it's definitely possible to walk to most of the major attractions, too. This hotel is approximately 1.5km away from the new town square (2 subway stops - about a 30 minute walk), and just a 45 minute walk away from the old town square.

The hotel offered a couple free TV channels - there were three English news channels that were available. The windows were a little bit complicated to open, but after working with them for a couple days, we figured out how they worked (you can move the handle up or down. Different positions offer different window opening modes. With one way, the window will open from the top, and if you move the handle to the other position, the whole window will open from the side).

The Breakfast

I certainly can't fault the breakfast at this hotel - it was simply excellent. There was a huge amount of variety. They had cereals, fruits, eggs, bacon, pancakes, breads, potatoes, sausages, salads, fish, juices, pastries, and there was even a cappuccino machine! The quality of the food was pretty good too. The breakfast area was 100% smoke free - one of only two food places in Prague that we found that were smoke free.


Rooms at the Corinthia Towers Hotel start at around 180 euro/night, but that's subject to change. You may be able to get cheaper rates through a consolidator. Contact the hotel for exact rates for the nights you are interested in.
