Hotel Praha
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Hrensko
Reviewed 31 July 2016 via mobile

I stayed in a room on a higher floor with a nice view over the river/canal. The room itself was comfortable, with a lovely bathroom (seemed to have been recently renovated?) and a deep bath which I enjoyed after so much hiking! The room had a very comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and a small fridge which was useful too. The mini bar was OK in price and had nice things.
The young man in reception was very nice and helpful, explaining everything quite well despite our language differences.
The meal I had in the restaurant (chicken schnitzel and potato pancakes) was actually very nice; fresh, succulent and with good flavour. You do have to purchase your sides separately from the main, which was a little odd, but I guess makes sense if you don't want to waste food people don't eat. The waitresses were friendly also.
The breakfast was very nice, plenty of options to suit most people and bread fresh. You could also take a muesli bar and fruit and bottle of water, which is handy for later in the day.
The hotel is not a four star though, the services certainly do not match that rating. It is basic and nice enough, but not coming with features that would enhance. It lacks credible wifi, which is a key issue for many travellers these days. We rely on wifi to keep in touch with the world, plan our next maps for hiking, etc. There was wifi in some areas, but you had to be lucky to get online. My room did not have wifi, which was not pleasing at all. The TV was small, had only black and white channels and local only. Very poor reception. Ok, I would expect that for this area, being in middle of the rocks.
Now for the rest: I walked from the boat up to the hotel, which was an easy and interesting walk. There are numerous bridges across the river/canal, so if you want to walk on one side or the other and change your mind, no problem.
I did not find the rest of the town particularly engaging; the tourist office was friendly and helpful, so that was nice. the location is lovely and unique. You can easily travel to and from by boat, which is fun. But the markets taking up what seems the whole town spoiled it for me. I completely understand that people need to make a living and I have no doubt that if you needed some new clothes, cheap cigarettes, vodka or garden gnomes, then you were going to be in luck! It is a pity they do take up so much of the town. but it is what it is.
The Hotel Praha is happily located away from all those markets and an easy stroll to the start of hiking trails and also you can choose which bus stop to walk to, upstream or downstream.
If I had to stay in Hrensko again, you know, I would probably choose Hotel Praha again.

Very good location close to Pravcicka Brana and gorges. You can leave your car on hotel parking and go to visite these places.
Good 3* hotel. Forget about 4*, maybe through the windows during cloudless night. Especially they should take care about food delivery during breakfast - almost everything I wanted to eat appeared after I'd taken something else or food was in not enough amounts :(.

This hotel is not a 4 star hotel. Staff (receptionist, waitresses, chef, cleaners, ...) is very unexperienced and unprofessional. Food in the restaurant was super bad. Everything in the hotel seems to be very old: beds and bedding, ripped towels, plastic flowers as a room decoration reminding cemetery flowers, even staff's manners (receptionist wanted to keep our IDs although we had already payed, copy of ID was not enough for her).
Shower was dirty and wifi was not working.
It would be generous giving this hotel 2 stars.
= BAD value for too much money.

The food in this hotel is absolutely terrible, all ready made products from the can, that are getting warmed up in the micro-wave, are still half cold and just taste awful. The service personal is friendly but not very well educated, bringing things that we never ordered and can't distinguish a green tea from a peppermint tea.

I stayed here for two nights to do the obligatory day walk around the main sights of Bohemian Switzerland (Pravčická brána, Edmund's Gorge and Wild Gorge). The hotel is located close to the start of the loop walk around the main sights with free parking next to the hotel. The room was smallish but functional and clean. Breakfast was much better than average. Free wireless internet provided. The loop walk is highly recommended and takes about 5 hours. Definitely worth doing the two boat trips down the two gorges.
