PRAGUE : Stay at Merchant’s Crown Hotel / REVIEW

MERCHANT’S CROWN HOTEL PRAGUE

Travellerczech’s Rating : 6/10


Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Cobblestone streets, churches, palaces and hidden renaissance gardens. Great food and beer, magnificent sights, together with affordable prices and safe environment.

It’s not easy to find the right location for your stay, so let me help to make your decisions a little bit easier. Czech my Merchant’s Crown Hotel review based on my personal experience and selection.


Location : 10/10

Unbeatable location, but little bit hiden inside Palac Koruna shopping arcade on a corner of Wenceslas Square and Na Prikope Street. Two main streets in Prague’s centre.

It takes 20 seconds to/from nearest Metro station ( Mustek ) and less than 10min to Old Town Square by foot.

Drive from the airport could be up to 40min, but keep in mind, the hotel is on pedestrian zone, so no car can access it. Better to use Metro/Bus, otherwise you need to walk 5min.

If you call UBER, it automatically directs you to the nearest pick-up point few minutes walk and wasn’t issue at all.

You will find endless choice of shopping, dining and sightseeing only stone throw away from the hotel.


Style : 4/10

The Palac Koruna building is a unique and beautiful Art Nouveau shopping arcade, but the reception of the hotel smacks of very “medium-density-fibreboard” cheapness.

Don’t get turn off by the reception. It gets better from here, as you will be escorted to another door few metres away with the lift. It takes you to the top floor, where the actual hotel rooms are.


Rooms : 7/10

The hotel has been open less than a year. Rooms are new, fresh and very clean. They include kitchenette and appeal like a small studio.

Rooms aren’t big as in other places, but have unusual angled walls, enough storage space, comfortable beds and handy sockets for charging your devices.

Bathroom includes basic toiletries, great shower room and Japanese style toilet with all the “spritzers” and heated seat…bliss…

Free Wi-Fi is fast. I have asked for courtyard facing room to enjoy quiet night, as the city can be quite noisy in the night and it was perfectly silent.

Service & facilities : 7/10

Reception staff was friendly and efficient enough. They just need a bit more confidence to deal with the guests. We won’t bite you 🙂

Merchant’s Crown only offers Rooms on B&B bases and small private Spa with Sauna/Jacuzzi you can book/pay separately.


Food & drinks : 4/10

Some items ( incl. beer ) from the minibar are included in the room rate, which is very nice.
Buffet Breakfast is located in a restaurant inside the shopping part of the building and it wasn’t best experience.

The place itself is totally cold, soulless and the food … well, it’s ok. Perhaps it is not a problem with the selection, but the way how it looks isn’t very tempting. This really needs  improvement.

Also the staff was too busy chatting than serving the guests and hardly noticed my presence.


Value for money : 8/10

Room rates starts on AED550 ( USD149) which is a very fair price for such a location. It is the ideal place for walking and discovering the city on a budget. Modern and comfortable.
