Workers at the front desk, they could smile more, they are very cold. Discomfort during breakfast, because there went the managers to control as the FBI. Their work was that he had come there only talk to each other. How much pay these people ??! Workers in the restaurants, very friendly and helpful. Hotel taxi was perfect.
The hotel is in a superb location, just on the outskirts of Old Town. You have the choice of taking the Metro (yellow line), or tram #3 direct to/from the hotel, or to walk. Of course when you walk you then have the opportunity of going off course down quaint streets or taking snap-shots of the stunning buildings Prague has to offer. Walking down by the river is also a lovely option - as is taking a short cruise along the river with one of the boat tours - really reasonable price wise.
Staying on the outskirts of Old Town / Karlin meant that we discovered the little gem that is Vietnamese Fast Food in Karlin. Really yummy scrummy food, seriously cheap - would recommend to all.
Hotel was great, plenty of decent food on offer at breakfast, only a couple of niggles - my mattress was really hard, I'm used to sleeping with a memory foam mattress topper, and also my bedroom blind was beige and didn't keep out the morning sun - so I was awake at dawn each day.
What would be good for the hotel is to have some outside space. The restaurant within the hotel has the only outdoor space available, and to sit out there and enjoy the evening you must buy something from the restaurant...so if like me you don't drink late, you also cannot sit outside. Shame.
The staff were on the whole friendly and helpful, and the room was cleaned each day. Overall I rate this hotel, and I would definitely consider coming again.
"Spacious, well located apartments near to downtown"
An old building with apartments made into a kind of a hotel-meets-hostel, where a few (but not all) rooms on a floor share a bath and kitchen.
It is extremely well located and properly taken care of. We got two rooms, one even had a balcony. The only nuisance is the lack of parking space, not even for check-in. All slots in front of the Rezidence belong to the police department across the street, no leniency (and no time in catching you if you attempt a drop-and-run operation).
Instead park down the street by the train bridge, there's free space around and is only half a block away for check-in. And for the actual parking, the hotel has a deal with a garage three blocks away.
For the price this hotel is great! It is located right next to a metro stop and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and supermarkets around the block.
The room itself was nice, plenty of room and it had everything you could need except a hairdryer or a jug. The staff were happy to help however and I was able to either borrow a jug or go into the restaurant to get boiling water for cups of tea.
The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but for the price you can't really complain! Some funny noises in the room as well (tapping in the pipes?), and you just have to hope you don't have noisy neighbours ad you can hear outside the room. Quiet street however and I don't recall hearing traffic and wasn't woken up by loud people in the streets below.
Breakfast offered a wide variety of foods and drinks and was very nice :)
The staff were also very happy to help with printing train tickets!
Perilously set on an outer bend of the River Vltava, Karlin suffered terrible damage during the floods of 2002. But this blue-collar industrial zone has rapidly recovered. The Karlin Music Theatre is the largest of many local nightspots providing light entertainment.
