After living so many months in Prague I decided not to eat in the same places (mostly the tourist area) I walk on the other side of the river not jn the tourist area and I got in here because it was cheap. I was surprised because the food was very good. They have daily menu and regular menu. My...

Hotel Balkan is a nice place for a reasonable price. Rooms are quite old but clean. Bathrooms could be cleaner and the air ventilations better. Great advantage of this hotel is the service at the reception. Very helpful and kind.

I didn't expect much because this hotel is very cheap but I got a decent room, fairly clean, food and personel was also OK. It's very close to the center and all public transport. (Of course it was a little noisy because it's on the rush street but nothing horrible). I've stayed in much worse hotels for more money so...

The room itself was spacious with a separate small bathroom , There was a television mounted on the wall but no remote anywhere to be found . The door lock seemed insecure with no security chain or extra lock on...

We didn't book this hotel and were put here when the hotel we booked had to close some rooms due to construction. Luckily we were only here one night. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable and breakfast was decent. However, there are no non-smoking rooms in the hotel. Luckily our room didn't smell like smoke. Our biggest complaint was...

A really dissapointing experience. We spent there a week a big group of friends and were badly treated by most ot the personnel, except the night receptionist who was lovely. The rest were helpless, we complained about not having the rooms cleaned nor the rooms made, and were almost laughed at our faces by their answers. Moreover, smoking is allowed...

My stay was actually November 1995. Today I discovered an old invoice from the Hotel name on it, so decided to see what others have said about this terrible place. We sent some faxes and were charged an incredible fee. Each page was sent as a separate message and at the slowest possible speed. Urgent inward international phone calls were...
