Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zeralut Good quality for good price
I like the holiday inns in general. in Prag it was nearly as nice as everywhere. One thing which was really annoying and totally unacceptable these days is, that smoking is allowed in the hotel lobby. Even if you want to go to the breakfast room, you have to walk through the smoking area. uggghh....
Beside this, room, minibar, tv, breakfast etc. good quality for a good price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eric254 Terribly slow internet connection
As a business traveller I expect a internet connection that would allow me to work during my stay however the internet connection was very slow although the wireless device is just next to my room door. I could not connect to my work email account. I always stay at IHG hotels but this was the first time I had such terrible experience with internet. Will never stay in this hotel again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Newhouse Where are is the management?
Staff more concerned about reviewing photos on each others smart phones than helping guests. Nearly impossible to find front desk staff. Bar service surly and agressive. Hotel shuttle service twice to three times the cost of a taxi.

Much too hot and impossible to adjust heating.
The hotel is very quiet and comfortable although a little bit far from city center.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EddieT Good value for the money. If you want more, stay at another property
At first I was too worried to stay at this hotel based on the reviews I read. There was smoke smell in the lobby, but was not that bad. The room was comfortable, but the furniture and the facility is a bit dated (not a modern hotel). There was a lounge on the top floor that had some snacks, sandwiches and soft drinks. Water bottles too.
The breakfast was very poor in choices and quality. The reception staff were friendly and helpful.
The Internet wasn't too dependable too as the reviews indicated, but it did work when I managed to connect, I just got disconnected too often. In summary, this hotel has a good value for the money if you are looking for basic service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lapa very confortable hotel
Nice hotel, however it looks to me that the hotel is not ready for people coming over by car. There is just limited paid parking space in front of the hotel what would not be sufficient for busier time. I was recommended to me to park in surrounded streets if the parking is full.
Very convenient is local underground stop "Vysehrad"

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Karhu Better to choose another hotel in Prague
My first advice is to avoid this hotel.
One of the main problems is that Internet is not working properly (slow and cutting frequently). This is a reason why I wll not return to this hotel. It seems that the hotel does to care about this problem since they will anyway get some package deal tourists (mostly Asians). In general it is strange that in the middle of the congress center area the hotel is focusing on package deal tourists, instead of business people.
Wireless connection is cutting freauently. I asked help from the reception and first I was advised incorrectly that there is some special plug connected to a hotel room phone. Later an IT maintenance man arrived to connect me manually by a cable. He either could not speak English or did not want to speak English. And he could not connect my computer by a cable, and just left my room.
In the following days I had a business meeting via Internet and it was a nightmare since connection was cut 11 times. I contacted again the hotel reception to ask to find the solution. A recetionist said that they know the problem and nothing cannot be done. I asked to meet a duty manager, but I was told that the duty manager will be away more than 3 hours and there is nobody else around. The reception never contacted me back about this problem.
To me it is difficult to find any pros, but I can numerate many cons:
- My membership status was not recognized.
- A room with a connecting door to the next room was given although I had especially agreed beforehand that there should not be a connecting door. Moreover, my wife's name was not filed although it was given via the IHG system beforehand. She was approached in not so polite way at the reception when she checked in later than me.
- A lobby area is full of cigarette smoke. Especially when there many (outsiders'?) meetings happening at nearby tables.
- Wireless internet is cutting all the time.
- Internet by cable is not working.
- Rooms are old and need renovation. Having a poor matress, it is diffucult to sleep properly.
- The hotel is NOT from walking distance from the city center. You always need to use underground.
- Breakfast is made of low cost as possible. For example, juice selection seemed to consist of cheapest possible dilluted juice. Definitely the poorest breakfast I have ever seen in any of the HI hotels I have visited.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tomiak not happy this time
The hotel has its standards, but my stay this time was somehow different. I travel for business, and therefore I must comment on poor internet quality: wifi was disconnecting permanently and wired internet had its limits as well. getting online was a nightmare.
Also, the water temperature in the shower was unstable. Hot water turning cold and switching back and forth agian. Very uncomfortable. The room number was 444.
Not speaking of the fact that the hotel lobby is a smoking area. It smells like cigarettes in the evenings :( Unfortunately, it's the Czech law that permits smoking in such places, including restaurants. But the 4-star hotel should have a special room for smoking that does not bother all guests.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravellingTeacher Excellent breakfast
I had a lovely weekend's stay at the Holiday Inn. My room was quiet and comfortable, the staff were all very helpful with flawless English and the breakfast was great. My only grumble is that the room was a little over-heated, but that's minor. I would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly.

I had a problem to get the old fashioned tv-set to work, but the staff did it when asked. The breakfast was a little disappointment, quantity first - never mind the quality style.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by steph1113 3 stars because not ALL the staff was horrible
I attended a conference at the Congress Center right next door to this hotel, which was the overflow rooms recommended by the Conference. The only reason I gave this place 3 stars was because some of the staff (mostly the female staff) were actually kind, helpful and acted as if they were there to help us during our stay. I did not take names but many of the male staff, particularly the gentlemen at the front desk, were not only rude to us, but practically ignored us and took Czech guests before us when it came to service and when we were clearly ahead of them on lines, and as having arrived at the restaurant there.
The rooms were ok. Housekeeping didnt really clean anything and as a result I felt as if I was living in filth for a week.
I wouldn't go back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jobber72 Friendly staff and decent rooms!
I've visited the Holiday Inn Prague Congress Center regularly in the last 8 years or so (it feels like home away from home by now# and every time the friendlyness of the staff is a breath of fresh air, especially compared to other hotels I stay at.
Upon check-in this time I was greeted by name and the lady at the counter #a trainee) actually thanked me for my loyalty to the brand. "quite" a different experience than the Holiday Inn Frankfurt Airport North where check-in staff can be quite rude. I happily go back to this hotel every time I need to be in Prague. Good location, close to public transportation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by billy224 Excellent for travel
Enjoyed two wonderful stays during a recent 2-week "Czech Odyssey". The hotel is very nice: modern interior; excellent on-site restaurant; adjacent to metro line "C".
Hotel location is south of old town; easily accesible by metro. It is in the 'Vyshrad' area which is very nice to explore and uncrowded by the usual tourists.
For business, it is directly adjacent to the local events/conference center.
The service and staff were both brilliant.
Overall, highly recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jiggity1698 This is a gym?
The food was good, but not great. I enjoyed the dinner experience, but the breakfast could have been better (eggs were runny and the kielbasa was cold).
But the gym... I understand that it is difficult with limited space, but this is just silly. The cardio machines were all fine, but why not some kind of Soloflex machine to help with muscles? Instead, there is only a bench and some low-weight dumbells to go with a yoga mat and some rope-apparatus that requires an instruction manual.
I think you can do better, IHG.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jay001 Recent stay
I use this hotel regularly when on business in Prague. The reception staff are all good. This stay the WIFI wasn't working and the hot water was off for a full day. Breakfast is never great here but this time was truly awful due to lack of food and beverages - possibly due to sheer numbers coming down at once - don't know. I find the bar staff aggressive at times wanting customers to pay with cash which is strange. Overall, the hotel is ok for the money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chrisb61 Big improvement
I have stayed several times now at this hotel and have had mixed feelings, however my recent stay was the best. they seemed to have had a change of staff and they really seemed to be better organised and more customer focused this time.
we were welcomed as Platinum elite members and check in and check out were fast and trouble free. my only negatives were
A, the breakfast. there were around 4 coach parties in the hotel and it was an absolute frenzy in the morning. the breakfast room just cannot cope with the numbers and its a free for all with most people as rude as anything and selfish with no respect for anyone else. the number of coach passengers we saw stealing food, making rolls and putting into handbag's etc was appalling despite there being a sign saying any food taken out will be charged. it would be ideal if coach groups were separated in the separate rooms and maybe staggered.it was like being in a zoo, terrible.
Secondly the parking. we travelled by car and for 2 nights we were charged the equivalent of £30 or €34. this is scandalous for a UK hotel never mind an eastern European hotel.
Anyway overall it was a good stay and I'm sure we will return again one day

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrLion very kind and helpful team at reception
+ Always a pleasure to come back to this Holiday Inn.
- Parking in the garage is a little expensive. But there is nearly no
Hotel could honor Elite members by complimentary parking.
- Too much group tourist --> decrasing style at breakfast
- I believe to remember there was a time it was possible for
Elite members to have the breakfast on the right side
of the restaurant ...
+ a standard (usual) breakfast as it might be in any HI at any
place in Europe, well ok ...
- You have such a great value of great specialities in CZ!
But I really missed at breakfast any Czech influence like i.e.:
* rohliky instead the prebaked and warmed hotel rolls
* Niva or smoked cheese instead cheese slices like rubber
* Czech klobasky

Great hotel, Great location, Easy access to subway. Hotel staff were very helpful with all questions and concerns. Platinum level gave us free wine and nut and dried fruit try in the room. Subway was a short walk and only two stops to get to the Museum subway stop. Best price for the location and would stay at this hotel again on my next visit.
