As Hotel Otakar was quite cheap, I didn't have high expectations, however I was pleasantly surprised! The hotel looks beautiful from outside and is equally charming inside. Upon arrival the receptionist was extremely helpful, instantly providing us with a free city map, travel help and where we could find certain attractions in very good English. The room itself was clean...

I stay in Otakar whenever I happen to be in prague for a few days. Just a few stops to the centre by a tram and in the vicinity is to be found the lovely park Havlíčkovy sady aka Grébovka, probably my favorite park in Prague.

We stayed here for a week, only arriving home last night. We paid 650 CZK (approx £23) to get to the hotel, which we are told was a decent fare. Usually we get public transport, but after being awake for 30+ hours we couldn't be bothered with the hassle. On the way back to the airport a week later we...

My husband and I just returned from Prague 2 days earlier than planned as we could not stay at the Hotel Otakar any more. We paid 500 Euros for 5 nights non-refundable and had to buy new plain tickets to escape this nightmare. So, where do I begin? 1) The building and the rooms have not been painted for a...

We stayed for 3 nights in Nov 2011 and were looked after very well. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Breakfast was an added bonus. The trams stop near enough outside(no.24 for city centre) or you can walk into the city centre in about 20mins. Great value for money and we would stay again without question.
