Hotel Lippert, Prague




Price
A medium priced hotel, and included in the price was the breakfast. The breakfast had plenty of choice with cereal, fruit, cheeses, sliced meats, bread rolls and also toast and cake.

Old Town Square

View from the room.

Location
Fantastic location in the old town. Right off the Old Town Square, which did mean at times with all the bars and restaurants around it was noisy, but with the double windows closed they blocked out most of the noise at night. From the train station if you walk it’s about 20 minutes away, there’s a metro stop 5 minutes from the hotel.

 Entrance



Facilities
The room was large with a separate entrance with a coat rack and wardrobe with room safe, big enough to place a laptop in. (New priorities when travelling with electronics!!) There was a room fridge with complimentary bottles of water, 2 small cans of beer and 2 cookies/biscuits, which was a nice touch. Room had kettle and tea/coffee making facilities which isn’t standard in Europe! Downstairs the hotel had a restaurant which gave guests 10% discount and was where breakfast was served and a cafĂ©/bar, all had outdoor sitting areas. Importantly as it was an old hotel, there was a lift, but as is common with many old buildings where lifts have been inserted, they tend to go to a landing and then there are still steps to your floor. (6 in my case!) The wifi was free.



Optional Extras

The building dates back to 1892, so it fulfilled my desire for old and historic. The ceiling in the room was decorated in folk art, not sure if original or added later, but something different and nice. The hotel will arrange airport pick ups and drop offs with a driver, I used this service, quick and efficient and cost 750 koruna. (18 euros?)

The Ceiling

Great place to stay, perfect location, nice small family run hotel.
