This is a good property and is huge. It has a few sections however when we checked in air-conditioning in some of the rooms was not working. The rooms are of decent size are clean. Overall a decent stay.

Stayed for two nights on business. Fascinating building - I felt as if I had stepped in a Smiley novel. Interesting to stay away from the tourist centre, but you walk to the castle in 30mins if you wish. Room good size, clean and comfortable. Wide selection of food at breakfast.

It is clear that this was once a luxury hotel in its heyday. The lobby is very ornate with fancy ceilings and crown moldings and the old fashioned gilt and flowery wall paper; however it is seriously in need of a remodel and refresh. We had a double room and a very spacious triple room (although the third bed was a weird platform thing they put on the floor). The bathroom was tiny and had no amenities whatsoever and had the half glass enclosure where you end up showering the floor. Hotel staff was very responsive - we had 2 issues and they sent employees to resolve immediately. Breakfast was included and it was quite good - there was something for everybody and the coffee was decent. Wifi was free but it was absolutely horrendous and worked off and on and only in some places. Hotel management if you are reading this - you seriously need to upgrade and strengthen your wifi signal. The best part was the gym. It was one of the most well equipped gyms I have ever seen for a hotel. It had a squat rack, 2 bench presses, tons of dumb bells, pulley machine, exercise machines for all body parts, TRX straps and so on. Awesome gym. The hotel exchange rate was also a rip off - 10% commission and they gave you 22 Czech crowns to the euro instead of 25.8 going rate on the day I checked. We had dinner at the hotel one night and it was pretty bad - 2 types of chicken (one breaded and fried and one grilled) were overlooked and dry and veggies were also overlooked and soggy.

It's a Warsaw Pact era hotel. Robustly beautiful. Lots of space. Foods OK. Buffet breakfast with all the normal stuff.

My main criticism would be the staffing of the bar. 400 thirsty people and one barman for 6 nights. They didn't learn despite the

It's a 20 min walk to the town centre but get Uber and it'll cost you at 100Kr to get there.

The hotel is a large Soviet construction similar to many throughout the former republics. We stayed in a club room which was newly remodeled and was quite nice. The furnishings were modern and the air conditioning actually worked. Unfortunately many of our group lacked AC and despite many complaints they received no satisfaction or room changes. The website advises free snacks soft drinks wine and beer in the club lounge but it was closed during our stay. The food in the dining room was average at best. Some of the staff were very helpful and pleasant but others were rude to downright nasty. There is a tram stop very close to the hotel which runs to old town and is the easiest way to get around. Otherwise it is quite a walk to historic places most tourists come for.

STAYED AT THE Hotel International for eight nights, summer of 2017. Arrived on an international flight at 7:00 AM, asked for early check in but staff refused in a rude manner. This indifferent and even belligerent attitude by reception staff was a constant for our whole visit. A question as to where to buy bus tickets led to several erroneous answers,and to our treking around the neighbourhood in vain until we found a very nearby machine.

Air conditioning is okay in most rooms, which require a room key card to be inserted in a reader for the lights and AC to be turned on, but any plastic card will work. Windows are single pane, so road noise is a real issue. Take a power cord as well as your converter, as there are few power outlets. Ironing board is a board/pants press contraption, with the board being extremely small. The first time I used it, it came detached from the wall because there were only two stripped screws rather than the five that it apparently came with. The shower was missing a rubber strip between the glass divider and the tub, so every shower flooded the bathroom. Towels were sometimes ratty, with Ravello edges. No hair conditioner or lotion offered, and the "coffee center" had no coffee and a kettle rather than any coffee making equipment. The bed was small, a double, with two twin sized duvets.

Restaurants - the Harvest Room and the Symphonia- had good food, with good variety and a lovely garden patio area.

While the hotel advertises as air conditioned, the lobby, meeting rooms and restaurants and bar had indifferent cooling at best. Attending a conference in business dress was a very sweaty, uncomfortable experience.

The location, in Praha 6, is in a residential neighbourhood with excellent bus/trolly/subway access. Prices in the local stores and restaurants, as well as food and beer quality, is excellent. It takes around 15 minutes to get to historic old Prague, and only around 1/2 hour to walk to the castle area.

The hotel was built in the Soviet Era, and is an impressive appearing building with a large star on the top of a spire. Public areas are attractively appointed. Restaurant and bar staff are friendly.

There is no pool, but a gym in a separate building and a lovely courtyard.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden view, it will be a better view and much quieter.

I stayed here for a seven-night conference. The rooms are generous in size. Storage space is adequate. Air conditioning works well. Wifi is very weak (intermittent wifi, liable to disappear after 30 seconds or 30 mins) and probably quite insecure (Hostname "WiFI", no password). TV system is very ordinary (many of options on the TV do not work; no movies; 3 stations for radio, etc).

Food is a mixed bag. A little hangtag in the room says room service bfst is 80 CZK (that's just ~$3.20). But the room service bfst they bring is worth just that. They are bringing you selections from just a small portion of the menu. However, I did enjoy having bfst without waiting, wearing just the hotel's bathrobe. On the last day, I had breakfast in the dining room. A greater selection of items. Somehow, I managed to vomit that breakfast all over myself and my seatmates on my flight out of Prague. That was after the hotel's banquet meal for our meeting. The banquet was sufficient perhaps to attract attention of people who eat with their sense of sight, but not with their sense of taste. Potato croquettes surrounding a large pork cutlet were prepared with rancid oil. Red, white, and rosé wine was served; the red wine was undrinkable; the other two were acceptable. The dessert looked promising: a piece of chocolate cake, with a dollop of whipped cream topped by half a strawberry. However, both the cake and the whipped cream were thawing out on the plate. So did I lose the contents of my stomach from the breakfast or the banquet? Other reviewers may have something to say about this.

Laundry service was up to western European price and service standards.

The hotel offers limo service to the airport. It was just a little more expensive than the service I had chosen for the inbound leg. Ordering from the front desk saved me the effort and internet security risk of ordering it myself. I thought they would put the cost on my hotel bill. They failed to do this. I said that I had intentionally used their service and did not have enough CZK to pay the driver; they prepared a separate invoice. Sloppy service on their part.

Under the terms of our event contract, I had prepaid for the room and been exempted from paying VAT. I would much rather have had the flexibility to walk away from this establishment.

Room Tip: Go to the other hotel you have in mind. The Vienna House Hotel Diplomat would have been better.
