"Very nice hotel"
We stayed 2 nights in this beautifull hotel. It is very very clean and also very quiet. The breakfast is fantastic and they also serve proseco which was very nice. You can walk from the hotel to the old town it is near of everything. The staff are very kind. The person who clean the room make a very good job it is so clean. Also beautifull view from the window of our room.
The location of this hotel is simply beautiful. Some lovely bars and restaurants right beside it with views over the city. It is about 900m from Prague castle and only two minutes from the tram line. We stayed in a room on the top floor that was on two levels with good air conditioning. It you are not good with stairs though avoid these rooms-here is no lift so you need to go up two flights to get to your room and then the stairs in the room are pretty steep. The rooms on the first floor don't have stairs. Very nice helpful staff and a tasty breakfast was included in the rate. Will definitely stay here again when we come back to Prague.
"STAY HERE!!! Stepan, you are the epitome of perfect customer service!"
I don't think I have ever mentioned a hotel staff member in my review title before, or even started a review with talking about the staff, but Stepan, you truly took this fantastic hotel stay to a new level for us. I am a travel agent and my husband travels extensively for work. We've traveled with our now teenaged children their whole lives. From the moment we arrived for our four night stay, Stepan provided exemplary customer service between check-in, my several questions, helping us navigate the layout of the property, and literally running to our aid when he must have seen on a security camera we had managed to get ourselves locked out in the beautiful garden (our own mistake). The fact that we were all sad when we saw that on our fourth day Stepan must have had the day off (and of course very well deserved!), speaks volumes to the effect he had on us and our visit. Oksana, the delightful and helpful lady who runs the breakfast service, had the most wonderful smile every day, and again, we were truly excited to see her each morning. The hotel is a gem. If you enjoy unique, quaint hotel stays, this is your place. We had a family room which was a two story room/loft. Sofa bed pulled out to a double, queen upstairs, and an additional single bed upstairs. Robes and slippers provided. There was no elevator up to our room and it would definitely be a challenge for those mobility impaired, especially carrying luggage. However, I already knew this from reading the reviews so it wasn't a problem for us. The included breakfast was good. Champagne provided if you enjoy having a mimosa. Having breakfast on the outdoor patio overlooking a nice yard was such a great way to begin our day. There is a second yard that has an incredible view of Old Town Below. I do feel it important to mention that if your desire is to be close to Old Town, and you don't want to spend much time traveling between your location and that particular area of Prague, then be aware whether you take the tram or walk, it will add 15-20 min each way. We purposely chose this gorgeous location to have its magnificent view and its sanctuary-like qualities, knowing full well the walk we would have. We enjoyed the exercise walking up the hill each day, after consuming such heavy food all day. This place is so peaceful at the beginning and end of a crammed day of exploration! We ate at both Bellavista (next door) and the Monastery brewery and enjoyed both, but preferred the brewery. Bellavista is just that- a breathtakingly beautiful view, but the brewery had good food and great character. I am excited to recommend this hotel to my future clients traveling to Prague! **And to AVE Hotels, I do hope you take the time to read your properties' reviews, and that you realize what a true asset Stepan is to your team!
"Incredible views and Incredibly Quiet and Restful"
You will be amazed at how quiet this hotel is even with the windows flung open. Imagine yourself a monk overlooking the beautiful grounds. Peaceful and restful aside you are right next to the #22 Tram which can take you anywhere in Prague very quickly or you can walk down to the Prague Castle and be on the walking Charles Bridge in no time, then make it to OldTown in no time. I spent an afternoon right in the monastery and the library and art gallery are worth your time. The art gallery is right up there with Rome, (I mean it!) yet it's quiet and you can meander in front of the incredible artwork. The restaurants are great right on the monastery grounds and thanks to the monks who decided to brew beer all those years ago, they've kept up the lovely tradition and it's delicious. God Bless you Monks! Stepan, at the front desk is a delight and the breakfast is amazing and you will want to linger with your new friends in this quaint locale.
"Beautiful, perfect location, and absolutely fabulous staff"
This wonderful hotel is located in a quiet area, part of peaceful national historic landmark garden of Strahov Monastery, and yet so close to everything. Quiet, even though restaurants are all around and within minutes walking distance (including restaurant Rilke, which is one of the best kept secrets of Prague, amazing ambiance, service, and the best of traditional Czech food), and provide the best views of the city. The hotel is quiet, the rooms are nice, breakfast is prepared with care and a smile, and Štefán, the receptionist, is exceptional. Gentle, kind, professional, the perfect touch to an already wonderful experience. We can't wait to visit Prague again, and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.
