Exceptional 10.0
The staff were very professional, kind and made the experience just wonderful. We visited for New Year's and they handed us a map with local recommendations and hot spots for the night. Really appreciate everything they did. The room itself was absolutely stunning and the river view made all the difference. Highly recommend!

Fair 4.0
The room is quiet and nice. Overall it is a great experience. Except that we received an email weeks before arrival stating that an upgrade to a lake view room with 40EURO (total or per night is not clear) will be really worth it. As the result the lake view turns into a street view instead. And the charge is 40EURO per night which is completely not worth it. This ruined all of our experiences about this hotel. Bad marketing.

Loved the view of River. We had a great staff who were very happy to help with all our needs. Our room was recently renovated and was excellent. Really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast buffet.

Very pleasant stay and great location
Waking up to the river view each day was fantastic. The location is within easy to moderate (but very scenic!) walking distance of most main attractions. The breakfast was great and the room was comfy. The heated bathroom tile floor was a pleasant surprise. Very small elevator though. But for a 400 year old building it's hard to justify that complaint. The staff was very responsive and friendly throughout our five nights.

Perfect location
We enjoyed our stay in Prague comfortably thanks to Smetana hotel. Awesome location close to Charles Bridge and had no problem getting Uber services. Had heated bathroom floors and great view from our room.

Very Good 8.0
Awesome location, great staff. We got upgraded to river facing room. The included breakfast can be better.
Sumo, us4 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Almost everything was absolutely perfect. Staff were wonderful and always accommodating to each and every request. Breakfast was delicious, the room beautiful and the location, steps from the St. George Bridge and right in the middle of everything, was excellent. The only thing that could be improved was the heat in the room. It was cold and we were informed the heater was turned off as it had been warm until recently. After asking, we were provided with a portable heater which provided a sufficient amount of heat. Otherwise, this hotel is recommended fully and without reservation. We will stay here whenever we are in Prague.
