Great location right in the city center of the same street as the St. Charles bridge. Very easy to find. It can be a bit noisy due to its location but really easy to get around from there. The breakfast we found not a very good value as the are plenty of places to eat right outside the hostel. Very helpful staff.
This apartment hotel's greatest asset is it's central location. You are within a few walking minutes of every major attraction of the old town and 20 min by foot from the Palace.
The apartment we had was on the 6th floor under the roof. Elevator was going up to the 5th and then up a pretty steep flight of stairs. At the end of a long hot day on your feet, that didn't always feel great especially since the stairwell was very stuffy. It had a roof window which however was never open despite really hot weather.
The apartment itself was a 1 bedroom with 2 sleeper sofas in the main living room. Furnishings were rather sparse. Simple lower end IKEA furniture some of which had seen better days. Everything was clean though and in good working order.
Large windows overlooking the roofs of the old town of Prague giving really gorgeous views and lots of brightness inside. We had the windows open for ventilation but because of the central location of the hotel masses of tourists pass through the street under the windows at every hour of the day and night we did have to close them to be able to sleep. Air conditioning worked and made it comfortable inside despite the heat outside.
There is a small galley kitchen but poorly equipped so I can't imaging that one would cook a meal there. Breakfast maybe although that is also served at the reception area and is decent. It was good to have a fridge for cold drinks.
Bathroom was not luxurious either but efficient and clean. The shower handle in the tub could not be adjusted in height and was set at the lowest end of the shower bar so you have to basically hold it in your hand. Hot water was a bit finicky but once you figured out your setting it worked fine.
All in all we found that this was far from being top notch in terms of comfort and equipment but it was clean, spacious, bright and efficient and located in a perfect spot.
I don't have sufficient words to express gratitude to Katarina Prikrylova for her kindness and hospitality on our last day at Prague. Royal Road Residence superbly located a few minutes walk from the glorious Old Town area and Charles Bridge.
Our train from Prague to Budapest was only at midnight so during the course of the day we managed to leave our suitcases at Royal Road reception, were offered tea, coffee, drinks, snacks and fruit through-out the day plus were graciously allowed to stay on the property at no additional charge till 10pm.
Sitting on the balcony watching the tourists go by and relaxing at the same time was amazing!
Thanks Katarina, so appreciated!
The staff was friendly and helpful, the location was perfect and the hostel was really clean and comfortable. The only negative point was that we received 3 keys instead of a card to open the doors and it was annoying carrying this.
I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff was welcoming and helpful, and the rooms were comfortably large. The location was great for on-foot sightseeing; however, sometimes at night the noise from people on the street could be a bit much. Overall, I had an excellent time there.
We booked this hotel a day before our flight to Prague. We did not know what to expect but needless to say everything was amazing! The front desk person (Diana is who we spoke with) is AMAZINGLY helpful and really helped us make the best of our weekend in Prague. The room itself is clean, comfortable, and in an amazing location.
Even though it's in the middle of the city, we were not woken up by noise and had an extremely pleasant stay. There is breakfast for 5 EUR which we did not have, but it looked nice - fruit, coffee, tea, breads, jams, and cereals.
We will definitely be back here!
Amazing location! Stayed in the summer and was so impressed by the value for money I returned! Great room for 6, perfect size and has kitchenette so we had the opportunity to cook. Only issue was not much cooking equipment but we managed. Already recommended to a friend.
The hostel itself was great -- it had an excellent location and the room was nice, very clean, and bright. When you arrive, there is no sign and you have to call up to reception to be let in, which was a bit confusing because we didn't know that beforehand. When we arrived, our reservation was not processed correctly, so we could not stay two nights, and the staff offered very little assistance in finding alternative accommodations and did not compensate us at all, which was very frustrating.
Liked: This is extremely close to the Charles Bridge and is a good place to stay amidst colorful houses. Staffs were friendly and especially Dian (dont know whether I spelt it correct) who was very helpful.
Disliked: Almost nothing. I loved it all. May be a 24 reception could be helpful sometimes. But you can live with a 8AM to 10PM opening too.
very quirky... if you are looking for a standard Holiday Inn-like hotel, forget this place and go elsewhere. But, if you want you want something that would help you to appreciate what it might be like to live in Prague, the Royal Road Residence is a good place to start.The residence itself is a flat (one of several) in an old but tidy building right on the route from Old Town Square to Charles' Bridge. Furnished in a somewhat unexpected way, with amazingly comfortable IKEA beds but hardly anything else. Except the views to die for.Would I go there again? Of course I would!Would I recommend it to anyone else? Only to those who are prepared to be amazed and amused (in the best possible way)!
