Maybe it was me, but maybe it was PRAGUE: THE FOOD WAS BAD. Just eat chocolate.
“Recommended to us, we will do the same!”
We stayed in Prague 3 nights so used our Expedia credit to help with the cost. I did lots of research but Betlam never turned up. I would not have stumbled onto it. Family who use it frequently for study groups recommended it. I choose hotels based on location, price, reviews, available food, and communication. Then cleanliness, comfort, lighting, water pressure, mirrors, shelving in bathroom to the review. Location was key for this place. On its own little square, but close to everything. Expedia went well, and was less than I found otherwise. Churches in Prague are used for concerts, we caught the last few seconds of a school orchestra from our room window when we returned one evening. My side of the bed was comfortable, but hubbys was very lumpy. He didn't say anything to staff to have it taken care of. I liked the coat hooks at the door. very handy. Bathroom could be better lit for applying makeup and no space for our presonal items. Hairdryer was useless, the hose was too short and away from mirror. (for those of us who are blind and wear glasses, these things are important). Shower was wonderful. Don't know about temp controls. We opened the windows for fresh air a few times. Staff was very pleasant. Breakfast was really adequate and most importantly saved time from looking for places to eat. We walked to it from the metro. They stored our luggage all day because we took the night train out. I would definately stay in this old world charm place again.
Perfect location! We used their airport transportation, driver was waiting for us when we arrived. Price was even cheaper than stated on website. Ask hotel staff when booking transportation the actual cost. Hotel is perfectly situated in Old Town, walk everywhere within minutes. Hotel was exactly as shown in webite pictures, no surprises.
“Friendly, clean, great location. We'll be back!”
Betlem Club Hotel is a charming little hotel across from the Bethlehem Chapel, a few minutes walk from both the center square and the Charles Bridge. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, the place was very clean, the neighborhood was wonderful with several excellent pubs and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. We really enjoyed the ample breakfast in the medieval cellar each morning. A great price and a fabulous location. We'll definitely return to Betlem Club!
We loved it, very friendly staff and great location
“nice hotel with character”
I would recommend this hotel because of it's location. It's within walking distance to most of the sites, but if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs because the walls and windows are thin, and you can hear a cricket sneeze outside. We stayed over the weekend in the hotel. Wow. The noise level outside was beyond bearable. Lots of locals screaming and yelling and singing and whistling and just being too damned loud. But a strange thing about the thin walls is that it's not thin enough to get connection to the hotel wifi. I had to sit in the hall or in the lobby in order to get wifi; it wasn't a huge deal since I was not trying to check my email every chance I could get, but not being able to check it while laying in bed was a Doh! Besides the weak signal and the hideous noise level outside, I would recommend this hotel. It's cheap, close to everything, and the staff is very friendly. The breakfast buffet downstairs in the dungeon was also a huge plus. BTW a quick tip: if you want non-carbonated water, it is Neperlivá (remember the "Ne" !!!) We failed numerous times and bought carbonated bottled water and had to trash them because we thought it was still water ;-)
“Great location and rustic athmosphere”
The hotel is located in the center of the Old Town. All major attractions are in walking distance. It has a rustic flair and is homed in an old building. Facilities are up to date and, I would say, above average. Rooms are small, but very clean. Front desk staff was very helpful, speaks English fluently. They offer transportation (surcharge) to various destination (train, airport, etc), which one mainly needs for moving luggage at arrival or departure. Breakfast is included. It is a quite reasonable buffet with everything one would expect. I certainly recommend this hotel.
This hotel was right in the heart of Prague. The breakfast was above your standard fare, and the price was right. If I go back to Prague, I will be staying at this hotel.
“Quaint and Convenient!”
I stayed at the Betlem Club twice - once in 2000 and once in 2010. It has not changed much - it's still as charming as ever. It's a blend of western and Czech - comfortable beds, clean and modern bathrooms, and teeny little TVs. They don't expect you to stay in your room which is perfect, because you're in Prague - you shouldnt be in your room! The square in front of the hotel is hopping - much more so than it was 10 years ago. There are 4 restaurants within a stones throw and all are great - Klub Architechtu across the street is incredible. The hotel is perfectly situated between Old Town Square, Narodni Trida, and the Charles Bridge. If you've never been to Prague, it's the perfect place to stay. The accommodations are nothing fancy. There is a good breakfast cerved in the medieval cellar, and a new spa in the hotel. Internet was down while we were there, but Prague has so many internet cafes, it wasnt inconvenient. The only issue we had was the noise on the square - due to its location, it's a walk-thru square so drunken people coming from old town square stumble through late at night. bring your ear plugs and you'll be fine. I'd go back in a heartbeat!
“Great value, pleasant experience”
The hotel was very basic, but typical European and did not lack in any of the basics. I stayed in one of the attic rooms, and I did have an issue with hitting my head a few times, but that wasn't a big deal. The hotel was very clean, the continental breakfast was decent, and the location is fantastic. I loved Prague and would stay in this hotel again on a return visit.
