My second stay at Park Inn Prague in 2017 placed me in a top floor, 5th floor Business Class room with patio deck.
This hotel has provided valuable returns for my two stays. My 2-night stay in January 2017 for $87 USD helped me earn 70,000 Club Carlson points by staying 8 nights in Carlson Hotels during their winter promotion.
Having just had my wallet stolen at Prague Airport the hour before, being welcomed to Park Inn Prague with two complimentary drinks at the bar was just the kind of medicine we needed.
We had to wait a couple hours for our room and used the time to go file a police report on my stolen wallet at a nearby police station. Then we went to lunch for $6 meals at a local pub two blocks away. U Vorare is a pub I knew from my previous stay at Park Inn Prague in January. The pub had a little more action with rock music playing over speakers compared to the empty Park Inn restaurant.
Park Inn Prague Room 524
After lunch we received our room key card.
The main difference between this room and the room I had in January were windows in the bathroom.
The location of the room behind an outside wall provided privacy from the Vysehrad hilltop ramparts, but also restricted our view of the cityscape.
View from the adjacent room patio.
The patio could have been a wonderful feature, if it were not for the July heat wave happening during our stay. The patio was great for drying some wet hand laundry.

The building was originally a printer’s shop built in 1907.
A Tesco Express market is around the corner from the hotel entrance.
The Vltava River is 2 blocks away. (This river view photo is from January 2017 and not a crazy local wearing a parka during the July heat wave).
Park Inn location within Prague
Some tourists might find the location of Park Inn Prague too out of the way for city tourism. I prefer the quieter neighborhood to hotels in the more touristed parts of the city, where crowds can be overwhelming and restaurant and beer prices can be double the cost of dining in this area of Nove Mesto around Park Inn Prague.
Karlovo namesti Metro Station
Prague Metro is an efficient means of quickly getting to different areas of Prague for 24 CZK ($1.10 for 30 min) or 32 CSK ($1.45 for 90 min). The local Metro station is Karlovo namesti, about 10 minutes walk from Park Inn Prague.
Trams are outside the hotel and also run along the riverbank to whisk you into Stare Mesto close to Charles Square and Charles Bridge. Trams are same price as Metro tickets and transfers permitted within time allowed on your 30 minute or 90 minute ticket.
Park Inn Prague is a 4-star hotel and category 3 Club Carlson reward night at 28,000 points.
Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel is a 5-star hotel and more centrally located to major tourist sites of Prague. That hotel is generally double the room rate of Park Inn and a Club Category 6 hotel reward at 50,000 points per night.
Shout out to helpful staff at Park Inn Prague.
The front desk staff at Park Inn Prague were exceedingly helpful upon our arrival from the airport, where my wallet was pickpocketed. I have traveled many places for several decades and this was the first time I had a significant loss or theft in all my travels.
The young man at the desk, and regretfully I don’t remember his name, called the airport to check lost and found. No such luck. Then he called the neighborhood local police station to inform them I would be coming to file a lost wallet report. There were limited English staff working at the police station, so it was quite helpful to have a local explain the situation to the police before my arrival.
