"Charmless & sterile" Ibis Praha Mala Strana Prague Tip by PackLite

Ibis Praha Mala Strana Prague, Prague: 1,196 reviews and 0 photos

If you?re familiar with Ibis Hotels I suppose this will meet expectations. It?s clean, modern, functional, and efficient. It?s well used by tourists, especially large bus groups, as well as businessmen. Staff is well-trained.
The hotel is about 5 minutes from tram and subway. Then wait on the train and in 10 minutes you?re walking around the old city. This means you?ll invest about 30-40 minutes every time to you go and out of center city. It?s not a place you can use as a convenient rest stop amid sightseeing.
There?s a bit mall next door. Surrounded by the standard issue chains, you?ll forget you?re in Prague. The hotel has a few tables outside. On one side is the featureless wall of the Ibis, on the other is a modern office high rise. You sip your drink right next to a parking lot and watch the buses belch forth tourists. You could be anywhere.
If you want something with personality, charm, good location, ambience?all those elements that give a place SOUL, this is not it.
We couldn?t get out fast enough, and relocated for a bit more money in the old city. That move saved my Prague stay.

Unique Qualities: Entertaining to watch people fight over the single internet computer in the lobby.
