Cheap hotel, but should tidy themselves up a bitPosted Nov 4, 2012
Pros: Good value for a basic B&B
Location: Dodgy neighbourhood, Casinos and not pedestrian friendly.
The Hotel Gloria was an average hotel. My room was tidy, but the carpet was grubby, or at least looked grubby, meaning it certainly needed to be replaced. No tea/coffee facilities but I believe that applies to many hotels in eastern europe. My disappointment was with the front desk when I asked for a taxi. The girl called one, then explained to me that it would be 290 CZK + to my destination. I told her that I paid a taxi 140 CZK the previous day for the same trip. She told me they only use their private transport company..I told her that I don't want their preferred company, I just wanted a regular "AAA" cab. She refused to call a AAA cab for me, so I flagged one down outside the hotel in 3 mins. The fare was about 140 CZK like the previous day. Basically, beware of these private arrangements that these hotels have with transport companies. Just get a cab yourself, they're clearly marked and are metered. A cab from the city to the airport is also about 500 CZK metered, and Hotel Gloria want 630 CZK !!

Inconvenient location, loudPosted Jun 9, 2010
This is not a convenient location for walking to the town center. It's doable, but it's a fairly long walk through not nice neighborhoods. My room was on a wall next to a night club. Techno bass is not what I wanted to hear all night long. Also, in the mornings the noise from the kitchen and staff talking echoed through the stairwell starting pretty early.

Just a little too far from the main attractionsPosted Jun 9, 2010
The hotel is in great shape on the inside, even though the exterior isn't quite as bright as it was in the advertising photos. The room was modern and well furnished, and the breakfast provided in the morning is very good. Breakfast while we were there included typical European items (cheese, yogurt, cereals, cold-cuts) and some local Czech fare. What works against this hotel is primarily it's location - it is within walking distance of many of the main attractions, and public transportation isn't far from the hotel, but there seem to be far more convenient locations available not too far from this hotel. The hotel staff weren't especially friendly, but they did their job well enough. The hotel has a central stairwell and thin walls, so our room just off the stairwell wasn't as quiet as we would have liked. The hotel also doesn't offer air conditioning, and to cool off the room in early summer we would open up the windows and suffer through the street traffic noise. We didn't feel uncomfortable in the surrounding hotel neighborhood - even late at night - but some people might prefer a more tourist-ed area. Overall this hotel isn't bad, and for the price we don't feel slighted in the least. If we go back to Prague, however, we would probably look to stay closer to the main attractions or the metro line.
