Neighbourhood
Staré Město (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. Location is great, breakfast very good (not included). Room however had many problems, the biggest three being the hot water pressure that was very low, the sighting of two silverfish on the bathroom floor and a bad smell in the room (409).

Amazing location, clean, good coffee in the room, huge bath tub, nice soft linens, courteous staff, easy 2 min walk to Charles bridge and maybe 10 mins to old town. Upon check in someone walked to my room, i thought that was a nice touch.

The Smetana Hotel is very beautiful and rooms are very comfortable (Mozart). The hotel cares for the comfort of guests and so we got an upgrade for free for better accommodation. The access to the main sightseeings is easy. The only note is the expensive restaurant, but there

Our stay at Smetana hotel is great and we lived in a family suite at the fifth floor with great view of castle, despite our suggestions over faster Wi-Fi speed, slide door at shower place, availability of toaster, better TV channels.
