After a very rough flight, we finally landed at Václav Havel airport, Prague. We got through baggage collection and security quickly and ordered an Uber to our accommodation in the centre of the city. Here is our review of the Hotel Élite, Prague.
The hotel is situated down a quiet little back street and the building dates to the late 14th century. It is very close to most of the city’s major attractions, for example, 900m from the Old Town Square, 950m from Charles Bridge and 2km from Prague Castle.

Hotel Élite, Prague
Ostrovní 32, 110 00 Prague 1, Czech Republic
We entered what would be our home for the next four nights, and it thrilled us with what we saw. Vaulted ceilings with a traditional feel. A small reception desk with friendly staff was ready to welcome and check us in.
We had to pay a small security deposit of 1000CZK. They paid this back into our bank account when we checked out. This was assuming you did not touch the mini-bar or do any damage to the room. We were unaware of this when booking, but they gave us the option to pay by card or local currency.
There is also a city tax charge of 21CZK per person, per night. (This was correct at the time of travel, February 2020).
Room & Facilities
After checking in, we headed up to our room. Our room was a decent size, and the bed was huge and very comfortable. There were plenty of wardrobes and drawer space to hang and store all our clothes. The shower room was spacious, well-lit, and spotless. There was always plenty of boiling water.
Our room window looked out over the main courtyard for the bar. As it was still Winter, this was not in use. Therefore, there was not any noise. However, I cannot see this being an issue even during the warmer months.
We stayed at the hotel on a bed-and-breakfast basis. There was a great selection of food and it was plentiful. There were many fruit juices, a coffee machine and an excellent selection of tea. It was a continental style self-serve breakfast with a wonderful selection of cereals, fruits, cooked and cold meats.
The bar area, which we used on a couple of occasions, was good. Again, the staff here were friendly. The drinks selection was excellent and also reasonably priced. Not bad for typical “hotel prices”. A glass of white wine and a glass of prosecco cost 200CZK, which worked out at around £6.50.
Book Some Excursions
Prague is full of things to see and do. Why not plan and book some excursions with Get Your Guide?
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Elite and would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Prague. If we go back to the city, we would re-book this hotel again in a heartbeat.
Other facilities include free Wi-Fi, Standard, Deluxe and Junior Suites, a laundry service and a currency exchange.
