two room penthouse suite

Just got back from a 3 night stay at the Prague Hilton. As a Diamond I was totally impressed with this hotel and would highly recommend it. As a Diamond, I was treated exceptionally well by this hotel. My wife and I were given a two room penthouse suite with a view of the city. I'd highly recommend this hotel.

Check In

Since it is the largest hotel in Czech, the lobby is often quite congested. If you are Gold or Diamond, head directly up to the 8th floor and check in at the executive lounge. The staff in the exec. lounge were quite friendly and helpful, especially Marketa, she was wonderful and very informative.

Lounge

The exec. lounge is huge, and is open from 6:30 am. to 10:30 p.m. everyday, serving an awesome breakfast including hot items such as eggs, sausages, and the best bacon I've ever had. The bacon strips were almost 2 inches wide !! Cocktails, snacks, and warm appetizers are served continuosly throughout the day and evening until closing time. There is a large screen tv and computer with free high speed internet access in the lounge as well.

Room

The room was so big it had three bathrooms. In the room when we arrived were several fresh flower arrangements, a plate of frsh fruit, and a complimentary bottle of Czech wine, quite tasty :). and a large bottle of still water. A few moments after arriving at the room there was a knock on the door and an attendant had a tray with a chilled bottle of champagne and two glases for us, compliments of the hotel. Very nice touch. Each day there we received a new large bottle of still mineral water, more fresh fruit, and a new bottle of wine.

Location

It is true that the hotel is not in the city center, but about a block and a half away from the hotel there is a tram stop. Take the "XB" tram 4 stops and you are in the city center. The tram only costs about 30 cents each way, and tickets are sold in the hotel gift shop. Be sure to insert your ticket into the yellow ticket validator inside the tram as you board. It stamps the date and time on the ticket. Tickets are valid on all public transportation for 60-90 minutes, depending upon what time of day it is. If an inspector asks to see your validated ticket and you don't have one, the fines are expensive. We rode the trams many times and never saw an inspector, but figured that since tickets were so cheap, it wasn't worth risking not having one. I would not worry that the hotel is not in the city center. Getting there is a piece of cake and takes about 3-4 minutes by tram. The trams run about every 5-7 minutes. Some people have mentioned in previous posts that taxis are expensive. We only used a taxi once to go to the airport, with the tip it cost about $22. I thought it was a bargain considering that the taxi was a brand new mercedes, and that the airport was over 20 km away. I'm not sure how expensive taxis were in the city, but the trams are so cheap and so easy to take, a taxi is really unnecessary in the city.

Gym

This hotel has one of the finest health clubs I've ever seen in any hotel. It rivals any major health club in the states. The gym is huge and has countless machines and treadmills and bikes and just about anything you'd ever need. The indoor heated pool is huge by hotel standards, and the edge is designed in such a way that it looks like an infinity pool. There is also a good sized sauna and steam room. There are separate locker rooms for men and women.
