Hotel Ibis Praha Old Town
Na Poříčí 5, Prague, Praha 110 00, Czech Republic
Walk into this hotel and you may think you've entered the 1960s. There's a mod motif in the public spaces: the lobby is dotted with '60s-style chairs in key-lime hues, while the bar is decorated in a flamboyant red-poppy color. The location here is also good, putting you right across the street from the Obecní dům. Free Wi-Fi is available in public areas and in rooms.
The modern rooms, done out in browns and beiges, are small and dark with not particularly good views, but they are reliably clean and the beds are comfortable.
YOU SHOULD KNOW There is no fridge or safe in the room, although there is a safe available in reception for a deposit.
Bathrooms are clean and serviceable, as you would expect from an Ibis.
Ask for more towels as you check in--usually only two are provided.
The lobby is surprisingly funky for a chain hotel, with the aforementioned '60s vibe, bright colors, and fabric plants.
For an added fee, guests can use a heated indoor and outdoor swimming pool and sauna at a nearby property.
Breakfast is fairly standard, and extra. You can probably find more exciting options on the streets nearby, although it's not bad.
The hotel bar is okay, although it's often a little quiet. Again, there are more authentic places for a drink nearby but it's handy enough for a quick meeting if you are staying in the hotel.
You are walking distance from most of the sights of Old and New Town, and right by Náměstí Republiky's metro and tram stops. Taxis and Ubers are easy to hail.
Au Gourmand (9-minute walk) is a sweet spot for a quick lunch while sightseeing in the Old Town. Or get past the silly name and try Brasserie mEating Point (3-minute walk), the restaurant of the Hotel Kings Court, which serves good international and Czech food and has a great outdoor terrace overlooking the bustle of Náměstí Republiky.
Head to Harley's (9-minute walk) for a good old-fashioned night out. Or the secession-era Kavárna Obecní dům (3-minute walk) is a beautiful spot for a coffee or a Bohemia Sekt (Czech champagne).
WHY WE LIKE IT
This hotel performs as you would expect for an international economy chain, delivering on cleanliness and basic comfort.
It has a little more personality than most, but the real bang for your buck here is the location, close to Old Town, New Town, and good public transport options.
