            Great value for the price! We were treated like VIP's and enjoyed the ambience very much. Service was fantastic! I loved the breakfast and that I could have it in my room at no additional cost. Good internet access! Wonderful stay, thank you!

            A wonderful hotel. Extremely helpful and friendly staff, delicious food and great service in the dining room, and a clean and quiet room with a comfortable bed and very nice bath. We loved our stay and extend our thanks to all the great staff!

            The location is not ideal -- a residential neighborhood about 15 minutes from the Old Town with few cafes. But the hotel's taxi/car service was great, and the tram and metro are readily accessible. So overall, a great hotel.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            Hotel General is very easy to reach via public transport. It is just outside of the Old Town area so very quick and easy to reach via public transport but also away from the touristy, busy and loud area of town. The service was fabulous! The staff was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the decor was stylish. Breakfast was included in our room rate, and was one of the best I've experienced. I also like that the hotel isn't too large...it is intimate.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            The service was excellent, and all the staff were extremely pleasant. Ibrahim the waiter/chef always brings sunshine to us every morning with his lovely smile and excellent cooking as well as great service. Definitely felt like valued customers when we stayed, very happy with 'Hotel General'. Will stay there again next time.

            The evening dinner served in the hotel was very tasty, and generous portions. We had our dinner in the hotel on our first night in Prague, the only downside for this was the food served very slowly, it took them more than an hour to serve our dinner, but the food was worth the wait. I shared room with one of my friends, the room was on the 4th floor and it was an attic. The room is smaller then our friends' room, and the big window on the ceiling became very bright in the morning, also we could here all sorts of noises from the street during the night. Didn't have very good sleep during our stay. If you could avoid attic rooms, I am sure you will have fantastic stay in Hotel General, as two of our friends had very good sleep in their room.

            Excellent staff, they were professional, helpful and friendly rooms cleaned twice a day, good breakfast.

            Very much nit picking here - room could be a little larger and not the best beds in the 5* range. If you are planning to head into the main tourist parts of Prauge it is a little walk, upto 15 mins depending on your pace - However I enjoyed walking up past the river and the hotel is only a few mins from the excellent underground and tram system ...so all in all no complaints!!

            Really pretty town. staying at the hotel general definitely made our trip better.

            I enjoyed the staff courtesy, the room style, and the breakfast.

            The one thing I would change would be to get a bigger room because we have a teenager. The room that we had, either doble or junior suite, did not leave a lot of room to move around with the cot in it. It would have been perfect if we did not have any kids. It would have been really cozy and romantic. If I stay there again, I will try to book the bigger general suite.

            Eveything. Mainly the service. The staff went out of their way to assist. The girls on front reception reminded me of my own children, and I was impressed with their maturity and professionalism.

            Having recently traveled through 5 european cities in 15 days, I can confidently say that the Hotel General was a very good choice for us, and possibly our favorite hotel on this trip. Having once worked at one of the world's legendary hotels, I am a somewhat picky traveler, and my priorities were location, cleanliness and value, and on all three I would rate this hotel a 5/5. from the moment we arrived and offered welcome drinks, the front desk hospitality made us feel like their only guests. In fact, it was with the help of the night clerk at the front desk (with his personal computer) that a small work crisis was handled perfectly before the start of business in ny the following day. The buffet breakfast was outstanding. Though somewhat outside of the city center, we were 5 min walking from any transporation connection. I would absolutely recommend this hotel if visiting Prague- you could not do better anywhere else.

            Very friendly, helpful and polite staff. Beautiful decor. Excellent value for money. Superb service. Great location.

            The only thing is trivial ... A couple of bottles of water at night would have been very welcome.
