Park Inn Prague is located in Prague District 2 about 1.5 miles south of Charles Bridge in Old Town Prague and 100 meters from the Vltava River. The near-the-river location by a river railway bridge makes it an easy hotel to find, even when walking back through the city after a pub crawl.
While the location might seem a bit far from Old Town and Prague Castle, I found the neighborhood to be more authentic for pubs and restaurants if you would rather be dining and drinking around Prague locals instead of Prague tourists, who fill many of the Old Town cafes and pubs. Prices were significantly lower too for food and drink away from Old Town Prague center.
And Prague has two major castles. Vyšehrad is Prague’s second castle established in the 10th century and only ten minutes walk from Park Inn.
The hotel itself has 5 guest floors in a repurposed 1907 printing and publishing house.
Park Inn Prague lobby.
Park Inn Prague bar.
Park Inn Prague dining room.
I did not patronize the bar or dining room during my 2-night stay. Neighborhood bars had far more character at half the price and breakfast was available in neighborhood cafes for one-third the price of breakfast at the hotel.
My room was a Floor 5 Business Class complimentary upgrade as Club Carlson Gold elite member.
The room was a comfortable size with enough space for an additional chair and a large patio deck. I was glad to have a room on the side of the hotel facing away from the train tracks.
Park Inn Prague Room 515 patio with sliding glass door. The door would open, even though it was January, but I thought I might have to call maintenance to get it closed again. After my first trip outside, I did not play with the door a second time.
Surrounding buildings about the same height gave the patio an urban view, but still kind of cool since the view is urban Prague.
King bed and comfortable pillows. Both bedside lamps and separate reading lights.
TV and desk with mini-bar in cabinet and safe.
Closet and cabinet with shelves, coffee maker, iron and board.
Bath and separate shower in bathroom.
The heated towel rack was useful for quick drying my hand laundry on my fourth day of travel.
The reception desk staff were friendly and helpful for me. I got a kick out of the young woman telling me she was born in Davis, California and did I know where that is located?
I lived in Davis five years and graduated from UC Davis with a BS in fermentation science.
Park Inn Prague art deco facade building. Hotel entrance is around the corner of right end of building. There is a Tesco Express market seen in the left corner of building.
I stayed on Club Carlson’s 2-for-1 weekend rate paying $87 all-in for a Thursday and Friday 2-night weekend stay. This hotel rate discount for Europe, Middle East and Africa hotels was discontinued by Club Carlson three days after my Park Inn Prague stay. The 2-for-1 and 4-for-2 rates had been a discount opportunity I promoted for travelers on this blog for the past five years.
