There are 2 buildings of the hotel and you'll need to take the cable car in the hotel to get back to your room if it is in building 2. By the time we checked in, the staff told us the cable car was under maintenance and there would be shuttle bus to take us to building 2 and asked us to sit in the lobby and he will tell us when the shuttle arrive. We waited for almost half an hour and decided to leave our luggage at the hotel and have a dinner first. I also asked the frequency of the shuttle bus and then the staff just tell me the cable car is already working, which means no one told us the cable car was back to order while we were waiting for it! Otherwise the hotel is pretty good and the receptionist at the building 2 was really nice.
We spent 17 days at the hotel and will definitely stay at Arbes the next time we come to Prague. This is the best location. Close to the historical sites, tram, metro, train station, parks, restaurants, there is also a mol in 5 min walking distance. Very helpful and friendly staff. Tasty breakfast. Clean room.
A bit far from the center, but doesn't take much with pubic transportation or a taxi to get anywhere. The place is clean, pleasant, the rooms are large. It is a typical low cost hotel in Central Europe. Breakfast is great!
Found that first room offered (supposedly an upgrade) was in a wifi dead zone. After about an hour discussing with desk staff and experimenting with different locations (all with strong signal), they finally agreed to switch me to a different room. Never succeeded in getting towel warmer to work, either. Desk and bath a bit cramped, but bed and other amenities were fine. Desk staff were polite and helpful over all.
Just great overall. Location is close enough to everything. No need to stay any closer in my opinion, unless you wanna do the hostel thing because it would not be cheaper. Nothing wrong with hostels..as its a great way to meet people and can save you tons. We came in some warm weather so the air conditioning was so important and clutch. You should plan to do lots of walking anyway in Prague, and this place is right near the bridge(s) to get you into old town. Oh and the shower in our room provided the best shower I ever had in my life (301). Try to get one of the rooms ending in "01" as this is a more private, slightly larger room at its own end of the hall.
It was the second time we stayed in Hotel Angelo. First time was in Hotel Angelo Katowice and it was excellent - That's why we decided to stay in Angelo in Prague as well.
Hotel stuff makes you feel very welcome and they are super helpful. When we arrived at about 8 am (check in is from 2pm) after all night trip, we had no problem checking in and getting our room straight away. That was great as I thought we would have to wait till the afternoon (as we did a month ago in a different hotel in Faro). Also there was no problem at all with late check out (in few other hotels we had to pay for each hour extra)
Breakfast was good, quality and loads to choose from.
From the less positive side - ladies\waitresses working during breakfast looked like they don't really want to be there - no smile and quite slow. Then again, that is really small thing.
The biggest minus comes from the breakfast as well. My fiance is pescatarian - she doesn't eat meat - during breakfast she had what was described as "omelet with vegetables" - it looked like little omelet muffins, she had one whole, then cut one in half just to discover that it had loads of small pieces of ham!?! It was enough to ruin her day.
Overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
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.
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.
