Here is our review of the Hotel Élite, Prague. A historic hotel in the heart of town, perfect for your city break. Comfortable, clean and cosy and the perfect base to explore everything that Prague has to offer.
Hotel Élite ****
Ostrovní 125, 110 00 Nové Město, Czechia
After a 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, the Hotel Élite.
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 main attractions, for example, 900m from the Old Town Square, 950m from Charles Bridge and 2km from Prague Castle.

We entered what would be our home for the next four nights and were very happy with what we saw. Vaulted ceilings, with a traditional old boutique feel. A small reception desk with friendly staff were ready to welcome and check us in. We had to pay a small security deposit of 1000CZK which would be paid back into our bank account after checking 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 were given 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 was plenty of wardrobe and drawer space to hang and store all our clothes. The shower room was spacious, well-lit and very clean. There was always plenty of hot water.
Our room window looked out over the main courtyard for the bar. As it was still Winter this was not in use so there was not any noise. However, I can’t see this being an issue even when being used during warmer months.
We stayed at the hotel on a bed and breakfast basis. The food was varied and plentiful. There were many fruit juices, a coffee machine and a good selection of tea. It was a continental style self-serve breakfast with a good selection of cereals, fruits, cooked and cold meats. The hotel also provided cake (which was delicious) and other local items.
The bar area which we used on a couple of occasions was good. Again, the staff here were friendly and attentive. Drinks were 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 ahead and book some excursions with Get Your Guide.
All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Elite. Therefore, we would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Prague. If we do go back to Prague, we would re-book this hotel again.
Other facilities include, free Wifi, Standard, Deluxe and Junior Suites a laundry service and a currency exchange.
We hoped you enjoyed our review of the Hotel Élite, Prague.
