"An incredible surprise"
We walked our suitcases over cobbled stones after being dropped off by the taxi at night at the front entrance of a dimly lit yard although it was apparent this was a lively place We found a lit doorway with a bell et voila - a friendly voice spoke and welcomed us with the code to enter and our room number and added that the breakfast room was along the corridor and served from 7am. The spacious suite was amazing - high ceilings and high arched windows with a ladder placed strategically to allow pulling down the blinds. The en suite was equally spacious and breakfast was plentiful and could be taken in the adjoining courtyard. The weather was perfect to boot. The yard that we had entered the night before was surrounded by incredible buildings including a brewery and a medieval library. It was only a 10 minute walk down the hill to the cathedral. The administrative arm of this concern is smooth and impressive - I am only sorry we were only there two nights. The price more than reasonable. Those who manage the hotel deserve congratulations - this is a real gem and while we were unsure what to expect in the dark the night before, all was magically revealed the next day
"great place, charming and in an unique spot of prague"
excellent and quiet location (just five minutes walking to the prague castle, and 15 to downtown) away from busy touristic prague. we had a huge room with two king size very comfortable beds and vaulted ceilings. literally two steps away from top restaurant strahov monastic brewery where you can eat the most wonderful gulash in town. very good breakfast with quite a large choice, and top staff: stepan and his colleagues do their best to make your stay in prague a wonderful trip to remember.
I stayed at Hotel Monastery for 2 nights in May after staying 3 nights at another hotel in Prague. Everything was so lovely, a very helpful receptionist who booked us a table at a fully booked restaurant, breakfast with a great variety of food, cosy garden with a great view over Prague, relaxed atmosphere. Perfect location.
"A little bit of history"
From the moment we arrived we thought what a magical place this was, especially when you consider it's history. Approaching the hotel gives you a sense of being part of history, as there is no reference on the outside of being a hotel. We were greeted by a very bubbly person called Andrea with her warm and friendly greeting who also gave us time to explain a few things of the local area. Andrea is we believe the face of this hotel and she adds so much to the experience of staying here (sadly for the guests Andrea has moved on to hopefully to further her career in another hotel and we just hope she doesn't lose that something special she has in making guests feel special themselves) The hotel is dated and some areas could maybe do with a little uplift but overall it is quaint, homely with splendid views from most rooms and steeped in history. We stayed on the 2nd floor room 25 which as described is away from other rooms so is very quiet and spacious. There is no restaurant linked to this hotel, but you have plenty of choice locally, or walk towards the castle for 5 minutes and you will find plenty. Breakfast is available in an area by the reception, it is a small area, but breakfast is available between 7am & 11am and is a pleasant selection of hot/cold buffet style food. All freshly prepared/baked. Be an early bird if you like bacon. If staying for a few days any room but if staying longer try upgrading to deluxe rooms as they have more space . We would return here again and enjoyed every moment of our stay.
"Special unique hotel"
This hotel is so unique and special with huge ceilings and we had a massive window in our room too. It was surreal to be staying in such a historical place. The hotel is around 20 mins from the airport, we paid 500 KR on the way back and 620 in the way there. The receptionist was lovely, very helpful and so happy all of the time! The breakfast was also really good and plenty for everyone. We loved the area and the walk down/back up to town not using the tram or train facilities. However, I would note that this walk is not for everyone so if you are looking for a hotel that is really easy to walk to/from then maybe look elsewhere. We used it as an excuse to walk off all the amazing Prague food and the views are incredible. I expect that using the tram/taxis/train all of the time might become a bit tedious. We had a fantastic stay in Prague and would recommend both the city and this hotel to anyone.
