Before I left to Europe, I booked the Vlkova Palace hotel in Prague, Czech Republic for $94.22 for 3 nights. Check out my trip itinerary here, and check the latest prices for Vlkova Palace here! Booking this particular apartment styled room was a bit excessive as it included 3 beds. To explain, I was initially planning to go with a friend who ended up backing out last minute.
It took a lot of asking around to find my hotel upon landing in Prague. I was SO HAPPY when I got to Vlkova Palace. I highly recommend staying here. It was a bit tricky to locate especially at night, but when I got in I was greeted by two friendly hotel receptionists who gave me maps and suggestions on things to do. The building was small but in a nice, cozy kind of way. I took the elevator up, entered my room, and came across this wonderful welcome basket of goodies along with a handwritten, personalized welcome letter:
Seriously, what kind of hotel does that?! So awesome.
The digs were nice. They even put yellow roses around the apartment, on top of the bath towels, and near the toiletries. I had my own kitchen (which came in handy for the ramen I cooked), and a TV to watch shows I couldn’t understand. It was great.
I think the personal touch of maps, handwritten letters, and the basket of food made a huge difference – so thank you to the workers who helped enhance the hotel experience!
I guess after 18 days of travel, I was really excited to have my own place to stay, especially when it was so comfortable. I enjoyed getting out of bed whenever I chose to. I liked turning up the heater to whatever temperature I wanted. I was already having a lot of alone time traveling solo, but for some reason being in this hotel by myself felt like home. Considering I had been trekking for days, having such a nice living space and freedom in my own area was very refreshing to say the least. And for $33/night at an apartment with 3 beds? What a steal!
If the thoughtful receptionists hadn’t informed me of the attractions and restaurants to check out, I would have had no idea on what to do. They let me know that upon exiting the hotel, there’s a supermarket/convenience store, and a few bars and restaurants all within a block of walking distance. The public transportation was close by about 3 blocks down, making it easy to check out the city center. Location is key when it comes to choosing your hotel/hostel, and I’m glad Vlkova Palace was close to everything I needed.
Would I recommend this hotel?
Yes, I loved staying here! Vlkova Palace is affordable, convenient, with friendly workers there to help out with any questions you have. If you’re thinking about booking, check for latest prices here. Have you stayed at the hotel? Let us know what you think!
