“Great value - nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

This was a Birthday surprise for my husband. We didn't know what to expect as it was a kind of package with flight and hotel together. We were a bit apprehensive as it was all so inexpensive - but needn't have worried.

The hotel is smallish but the accommodation is superb. We were in room 203 and it had most things we would have expected. Comfy beds....air con....sofa....desk...loads of storage space....tv with BBC World News....etc. View was not brilliant but it was definitely quiet. Who cares about the view when you are hardly in?

Breakfast was good....several cereals, H B eggs (warm), juices, fruit, meats, cheeses, sausages (hot), crusty bread, crusty rolls, facilities for toast, sweet pastries, tea and coffee. What more could you ask for, in a foreign country - and fill your boots as much as you want!

Staff are delightful and can't do enough. I wonder at a previous review stating a poor attitude - we didn't find that and we came and went at all hours of the day encountering several different staff.

I have taken one star off simply for the fact that there is no bar. Would have been nice to come in, with tired feet, to relax in the bar with a cold drink, but there are two facilities 100 mtrs across the road where you can do this. One is a hotel and the other a restaurant, both with outside seating and welcoming.

The hotel sells it's own beer which, according to hubby, tastes really good. There is a coffee machine in the foyer with various varieties including hot chocolate for about 30/40....whatever it is in the currency. If I say 100 Czk crowns is equal to about £3 that will give you an idea of the price.

Thr city is v-a-s-t!! Fortunately the hotel is within five minutes of Wenceslas square. It was upon us before we realised it, reading on previous reviews that it took 10 minutes plus to get there. We looked at the map and decided we could walk to the Old Town - which is even better. Took about 20 minutes only and is a warren of little streets and good shops, if you discount the tourist stuff.

It is a very hilly city....I booked this in January then developed a cartilage problem in my knee! I tried not to moan too much so as not to spoil it for hubby, but relented on our last day when we took a taxi home from the Old Town rather than climb the hills back to Beranek.

If you do a city tour, then you have virtually done it all. We were, as an American friend of ours used to say, "exhibited out" after the city tour. We saw more churches and palaces than we ever thought would exist in one city - but nevertheless they were beautiful. If you are into culture/classical music/opera etc. this is the place for you. We were there for four and a half days and it was really enough - depends on what you want from Prague - but we loved what we experienced and TOH is still talking about it.

Except, that is, for his calamari which came naked - not as in UK with breadcrumbs or batter - and topped by about five baby squid. He was brave and ate most of it but shudders now thinking of it yet takes great delight in telling people here about it! Must be a kind of 'Braveheart' complex!

Now, I have read about how expensive the city is. Rubbish! A good meal - even in the hotel across the road (including the squid!!!) - is about £6 each. We found a pint of their local beer and a glass of wine to be about £4 - now you can't complain about that. We came back with money which is going towards our hotel in London at the end of August. Look out for my next review for the Strand Palace - in September!!

Room Tip: Don't know about other rooms but 203 with a rear view is fine.

Although the hotel is not in the Old Town, it is well connected by tram and a metro station was steps away. Also there are many restaurants and stores in the area. If you feel like it, you could even walk to the Old Town in about 25-30 minutes. Staff was friendly and breakfast was OK. A little bit expensive, but everything is expensive in Prague for New Year'S.

Stay away from the 1st floor if you hate smoking (or stay in the 1st floor if you like it) ;)

Room Tip: Stay away from the 1st fllor if you don't like smoking

Just returned from a long weekend with the family to visit the Christmas markets, this was our second visit to this hotel, so that goes to show that we enjoyed our first stay. This is a good hotel in a nice location, an easy 10 minute walk to Wenceslas Square.There is a Christmas market about 100m behind the hotel that is good for shopping at 'locals' prices not tourist prices. The rooms at the hotel are spotless and the breakfast is varied and good (eat as much as you like). The only thing that was poor is that there are no facilities for making a drink in the rooms.There is a drink dispenser in the lobby,but it could mean travelling down three or four floors to fetch one. This is not enough to put me off staying again if the opportunity arises. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends.

A good hotel for couples and families, but also for business trips.
Close to the Prague old city, so you can easily experience Prague by walking.
You can also experience the hotel named beer :)

This hotel is definitely worth a pass....If you're going to Prague, no matter what, don't stay here.
Rooms were dirty and the plumbing didn't work. Cold water was abundant however. Two requests were made to staff, one to get somebody to vacuum a carpet which clearly hadn't seen one in a very long time. The second to look up a phone number. Both requests were met with a short but sharp "WHAT NOW!" at the time, neither staff member was exactly overworked. On the good side...there were no bugs! Sheets were clean and there was minimal noise between midnight and 5:30 a.m. The breakfast room was on the top floor and the breakfast was plentiful, lots of cereals. It is close to the main shopping area and there were lots of people on the streets in the evening.

Hotel Beranek is quite well located, with Metro & tram stop just around the corner. The hotel is quiet and clean, and the room was pretty big. Bathroom fine also. Breakfast was plentiful, ham, cheese, salami, cereals, pastries, juice etc. Wi-fi is free and works very well. I had a late flight back to London, but was still allowed to return to the hotel and "camp out" in reception for a few hours until it was time to go to airport, enabling me to catch up with emails etc.
All in all a good, inexpensive (€65 Euro) hotel, with friendly helpful staff, and was fine for a short stay.
