The five star (TTG Travel Awards for six years running) Hilton property, is located at Pobrezni 1, boasts 791 rooms and has a casino n the basement floor.
We chose this hotel since it is only a quick taxi ride from the Old Town area but still somewhat away from the noisy ‘touristy’ areas.It is also centrally located a short walk away from public transportation and next to a mini-mall convenient for purchasing any items, one forgets to pack or needs last minute.
Fellow guests are mainly vacationing families and couples, but there are plenty of business travelers and traveling groups that opt to stay at the property because of its convenient location and multiple amenities.
The hotel is decorated in rich jewel tones and lovely wood furnishings with a large central open atrium in its center.There are several stores and two main restaurants on the property one for light meals and a more elegant restaurant offering traditional Czech cuisine.
Our family stayed in room 8053 a junior suite on the 8th floor. Our room had an excellent vantage point overlooking the outdoor pool, the train, and the nearby river. We had originally booked a family room but were told they all faced the noisy central atrium, so the management decided to upgrade us the next day after we experienced a sleepless night.
Our king sized bed had red and white linens as well as numerous pillows. Directly beside the bed, on the wall, was a thermostat so that guests could control the temperature in their rooms. The adjacent room where the boys were sleeping had a single bed and a sofa that opened out into bed. It also had four chairs rather than just one and contained a much larger table than the one in our room.
The suite like the family room included; wood paneled closets.,hangers, iron, and an ironing board. Near the closet was a full-length mirror, which travelers are sure to find handy. The room also included a desk area complete with a phone, writing materials, a chair, and a lamp and a large flat screen 40′ television.There were several electronic outlets near the desk and another two in other portions of the room, which we found incredibly helpful for juicing up our various devices.
The suite’s small sitting area contained a large white armchair and a circular, glass tea table. One either side of the bed there were nightstands. One held writing materials and a phone while the other contained a lamp and an alarm clock.
White and black seemed to be the defining bathroom colors. The bathroom had several built in shelves with towels and toiletries as well as the scale, slippers, and plush bathrobes.
Supplies for making coffee provided included bottled water, cups, a coffee pot, and another paraphernalia. There is also a well-stocked mini -bar in the rooms, but travelers should be aware that the items aren’t complimentary.
We loved the showers in both rooms enclosed with transparent Plexiglass, with a raised bottom level, so the water did not escape onto the floor. The kids’ bathroom also had a tub and a fluffy bath mat to go on the floor beside the tub.
An interesting feature was the half flush and flush buttons that operated the toilets at this location, which travelers could reduce their water consumption.
One of the hotel highlights is their plentiful breakfast buffet that can come included in the room package or purchased as an add-on.
The buffet includes a choice of cold cuts, salads, eggs cooked in several different ways and a generous offering of baked goods.
Another option is the executive lounge that boasts a hearty breakfast as well as a lunch snack and evening appetizers with alcoholic beverages.
We visited the property over New Year’s week and enjoyed viewing the city’s fireworks from the rooftop bar that had its ice bar with sculptures and seating.
The hotel also has an indoor pool so that guests who wish to swim during the colder months can easily do so. There is additionally an ATM on the premises, which makes withdrawing money a breeze. (but beware it does come with a hefty service charge)
This Hilton likewise has a state-of-the-art gym and an excellent spa. There is a rock climbing wall during the summer months.
Guests should note that the internet is not free at this location and make their plans accordingly.
Autism Travel Tips
- Even if your kid does have any noise sensitivities, you shouldn’t book the ‘family rooms’ facing the atrium since they tend to be on the noisy side.We got a giant whiff of it when we arrived on New Year’s Eve after 31 hours of flight and couldn’t sleep because of the noise. Do your family a favor and ask for a room away from the atrium!
- The hotel has already provided anti-slip mats in the bathrooms.,so you don’t need to bring your own.
- The tub has a hand-held shower head for parents and special needs travelers in addition to safety handles on the sides of the shower and near the toilet should travelers need them.
