The hotel is very close to the metro station, which is 3 stations (5 to 10 mins) away from the main spots in Prague and near a shopping center. The rooms are spacious and clean and some have a small terrace. You can enjoy a very varied breakfast with organic and vegetarian selection. Internet works well too.
The only downside is the lack of parking options around the hotel since it's a crowded area, which will inevitably lead you to the hotel's private underground parking for a steep fee of 25 Euro/day - but then again, parking is very costly in Prague in general.
Staid there for 2 nights, and had a wonderful time, all the staff went above and beyond to make are stay as accommodating as possible.
One thing I would say is that if you are going to stay at this hotel, from the hotel don't worry about getting a taxi, which will cost you around 750 Koruna, get the 191 bus to the bus station, which is only 5 minutes walk from the hotel and will only cost you 35 Koruna.
We enjoyed the stay in this hotel conveniently located within close proximity to underground and other public transport, including Smichovske nadrazi, a rail station taking us to our next destination. Double glazed windows sealed the outer noise and the room was pleasantly warm, with everything you might need on short term travels.
I booked this hotel sort of "last minute" as my husband and I decided to do a 4 night trip to Prague while we were visiting UK. This hotel did not disappoint. We are not ones who want/need to stay in the hustle and bustle of a city centre. It was easy walking distance to Old Town and out of the way of the noise. We experienced a very relaxing stay. Our room had a nice big soaker tub and that was a welcome treat after walking all day long. The roof top terrace is so beautiful. We sat up there late one afternoon for a drink. It was cool and we could have asked for the heater to be on but we just wrapped up in the blankets provided and looked at the scenery.
Each morning, we enjoyed a great breakfast. Not a huge selection but very adequate for our tastes. I loved the fresh yogurt and fruit and my husband enjoyed the sausage/bacon, eggs and pastries. On Sunday they had champagne ( bubbly local style) with orange juice which was a nice treat.
If you wanted a latte, it was extra but it was probably the equivalent of $1.50 Canadian! so very reasonable.
The heated towel bars in the bathroom were wonderful.
This is a nice four star hotel. Don't expect extra bathroom amenities like slippers and robes but everything was quite acceptable. The bed was nice a firm and the duvets were wonderfully crisp and clean. There is a small in room safe as well. We felt quite comfortable, secure and rested by the time we left the hotel. Would definitely recommend.
This was my second visit to Hotel General in two years. It is located in a quiet location of the city, within a 6 minute walk of the Metro station Andel. For anyone wanting to be away from the city centre( which can become very busy), the location of this hotel is ideal. It provides an enjoyable walk over the nearest bridge, to the city old town, which will take about half an hour. Whilst the surrounding streets seem a little tired, they are residential and safe.
Having stayed some years ago, in a much larger hotel, I wanted to find a smaller hotel ,which would provide a more personal experience. I believe that Hotel General meets this particular criteria. All the rooms(20) are decorated individually and are named after a military figure, hence its name. The decoration of the rooms and public areas is finished to a very high standard, the overall impression is one of elegance.
As the hotel is small, its staff have the time to speak with their guests, in order to provide a level of service which is not usually the case in larger hotels.This is without doubt, one of the main reasons, why I have enjoyed my stays to this hotel and which enhances any visit to this beautiful city.
Very close to public transportation and plenty of good restaurants within walking. Particularly the Bernard pub. The hotel is only on the top floor so I think the rest of the building is dorms or something. The breakfast was very light. The A/C worked well which was a big bonus.
Tourists come to this outlying westerly suburb to visit the Mozart Museum in the Villa Bertramka, where Mozart stayed as a guest of the Czech composer Dusek in 1787. Not long afterwards, Smichov’s vineyards and hopfields were replaced by factory chimneys. Today, many of these old industrial buildings have been converted into bars, shops and hotels for a fresh influx of residential settlers.
