Nice hotel situated in historic part,close to the beautiful Prague's Castle. The atmosphere is warm and the staff is friendly. As It's situated almost on the top of the hill ,i do not recommend for people with limited abilities. Nice hotel to feel the real life in old Prague.

This was an amazing hotel! There are only great things to say about Red Lion. The room was extremely spacious, we stayed in Room 21, and it had a queen bed plus a sitting area with a full lounge. We had a great view of Nerudova St, which was beautiful. It was in the most convenient location, about a 5-7 minute walk to Prague Castle and a 15-20 walk to the Old Town Square across Charles Bridge. There are so many wonderful places to eat, you can't go wrong with your choice of restaurant. The reception is in the Golden Star hotel (Red Lion's sister hotel), which is about a 100m walk up Nerudova St, so you check in there first and then get taken to Red Lion. Everyone at the hotel was extremely lovely and so helpful. There is no lift, but there are not many levels. Breakfast was average, bread, cheese, sliced meats, cereals, juices and tea/coffee. It was enough to start the day on though.

Red Lion was so affordable and it made our stay in Prague so pleasant, we will definitely stay again in the future.

My friend and I stayed at the Red Lion for two nights last week. It was very good value for the price, especially in the heart of Prague. The location in Mala Strana is terrific. You are just steps from the castle and many charming shops, pubs and restaurants and a five minute walk to Charles Bridge. Unless you want to be next to the bridge or the main square with the hoards, this location is really the best. The rooms are beautiful old style Prague with intricate painted ceilings. Both rooms and bathrooms were spotless. Be sure to ask for extra blankets and pillows as this does not seem to be the tradition always in Cz. Our room faced the courtyard and was completely quiet. Price includes a basic and tasty breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at this hotel during our recent visit to Prague. We had a large, clean room overlooking the city street. If you are planning to go to bed early then request a courtyard room away for the street side (front of hotel). The bathroom was large and the shower was great water pressure and fluffy towels. The breakfast was good, basic European meats, cheese, rolls, coffee was execellent. Free internet that actually worked in the room, lobby and outside.

Price was reasonable for this time of year. Would stay again. Also exchange you money at the desk they gave the best rate in town with no fee's.

Room Tip: if you plan for an early night - ask for the courtyard rooms, back of hotel

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for a short break. On arrival the staff were friendly and checking in was relatively straightforward. Our room on the top floor was enormous, clean and had a good view of the castle. It also had a TV with lots of channels (which was useful as it rained almost continuously whilst we were there!), mini bar and free wi fi. For a hotel in this price range you cannot ask for much more in my opinion.

Breakfast was the usual European affair - a selection of fruit, cereals, meats, cheese and yoghurts. Standard fare for a hotel, nothing special but certainly good enough to set you up for the morning.

One of the hotel's best attributes is its location. It's just minutes from the castle and there are plenty of reasonable bars, cafes and restaurants within an easy 5 minute stroll. The centre is a very pleasant 20 minute walk away (up hill on the way back!) across the river which means most of the main attractions are within easy reach.

Romantic hotel Red Lion is located in an historic burgher house from the 15th century in the very centre of Prague.

All rooms have an enchanting view of Petrin, the Royal Route and the roofs of Mala Strana (Lesser Side) underneath the Prague Castle. They are equipped with historical furniture. In some rooms you will find the original painted wooden ceilings dating back to the 17th century. Hotel guests can enjoy lunches in the hotel restaurant with remarkable renaissance ceilings. The restaurant serves traditional Czech as well as international cuisine. Breakfast is served in the form of rich hot buffet. The pub U Cerveneho Lva invites you for a glass of wine or Pilsner beer. Its centuries old stone walls provide cool refuge from the heat in the summer, which makes the pub a perfect oasis to relax in. The bar, which dates back to 1350, is located in a lime stone cellar with Gothic vaulted ceilings. It serves a variety of hot and cold drinks. The pleasant atmosphere of the hotel patio invites our guests to relax. A limited number of parking places is available directly in front of the hotel.
