From the moment, I saw photos of the cool quirky contemporary interior of the Pentahotel Prague. I knew that the Pentahotel Prague was my type of hotel.

It was ideally located for a weekend break in Prague. Close enough to Old Town Square and the tourist spots but far away enough to experience how the local’s live in Prague’s locals.
I book a three-night stay at the Pentahotel in Prague through tripadvisor.com (breakfast not included). Which is a part of the Pentahotel line of hotels.
The hotel is located in the Karlin District of Prague (Prague 8), which is slightly away from the more touristy parts of Prague such as Prague 1 but close enough by Metro (10 minutes).
The Pentahotel is surrounded by a few local cafes, banks, restaurants, a local Billa and is two minutes’ walk from the Křizíkova Metro Station and Tram stop.

Pentahotel Prague First Impression
The outside of the Pentahotel Prague, reminds me of the hip trendy hotels you would find in Greenwich Village New York with its exposed bricks and neon sign.
Stepping into the lobby was no different, an epitome of cool with exposed bricks, dark interior, large sofa and a check-in that also doubles as a bar area. I could have mistaken that I had accidentally walked into a nightclub.
But for me, this was perfect.
The Pentahotel strives on not being your run of the mill hotel and it’s accomplished this with its modern style and boutique feel at an affordable price.
The lobby was decked out with large leather sofas, wall mounted flat screen TV, a pool table (used to its full effect by the guest), a games area and fireplace. It was quite tempting to lounge around the Pentahotel lobby and not do a lick of sightseeing.
You get the vibe that this is where all the cool kids stay.
In the evening the lobby was lively with people socialising, drinking, coming and going. This was really a surprise as the area surrounding the hotel is quiet.
The hotel has 227 rooms spread over seven floors but still managed to feel spacious and inviting with friendly staff.
Check-in was nice and easy, with anyone in the check-in/bar area being able to check you in and give you directions to your room.
I stayed in a Penta single room (as I was travelling solo) for three days.
My room was spacious with small, interesting, unique touches such as the map of Prague covering the wall above my bed, an old-style telephone, large desk, the industrial looking clothes hanger and hanging overhead lights.
Despite it being a single room with a small balcony that overlooked onto the road. The room felt big and spacious.
My room was directly opposite the elevators, but there was minimal noise and I got a few good night’s sleep.
The bathroom was modern and minimalistic with an industrial twist. All white with simple finishing’s and was surprisingly spacious and bright despite not having a window
The rainfall shower was amazing and a treat to use. Continuing the minimalism touches the bathroom even had a sliding wooden door to save space in the room which is something you don’t usually see in most hotels.
There was also ample socket outlet for someone like me that travels with a lot of devices (two cameras, an iPhone and power bank – that all needs charging at the end of the day).
Sockets were also in the bathroom where I watched Youtube and charged my phone as I got ready for the day.
I also loved the cute phrases on the bathroom toiletries (I’m a bit of a sucker for good product packaging).
I couldn’t wait to use them. I liked that after using them my skin didn’t feel stripped or dried out like some hotel toiletries I’ve previously used.
I felt like every aspect of the room was well thought out, utilised to it fully and I never felt like my luggage was in the way when I unpacked or returned from a day of sightseeing with 100 brochures.
As breakfast was not included in my stay I didn’t get a chance to eat in the hotel restaurant.
But I did order the PentaBurger from there limited room service menu and it was nice and juicy (I highly recommend trying it).
Things That Needs Improvement
If you’re like me and like to stay connected while travelling, then the internet which was at a snail’s pace in the mornings and evening was a real let down while staying at the Pentahotel Prague.
They have a Premium internet connection package but that was just as bad as the free internet. So, I wouldn’t waste my money on getting it.
I also think that the hotel could have provided two pillows and an extra blanket instead of one pillow was flimsy to sleep on.
The towels in the hotel although clean were showing small signs of wear and could be updated for newer towels. There were no bathrobes or slippers provided which for such a modern hotel was surprising as these are just the basics in standard hotels.

The TV English speaking channels were limited to News Channels only, you might want to bring your own devices to use/watch during the evening.
I would stay at the Pentahotel Prague again even with the slow internet and flimsy pillows. I really liked the vibe and hipster interior of the hotel. It caters to my travel style and the rooms are affordable.
From the hotel’s location, it was easy to get to the main tourist attraction in Prague with ease and only cost 110 CZK to get a day pass for the Metro.
I arranged my own ride to and from the airport using rideaway.com by booking.com and Uber which were cheaper than the usual taxies in Prague or the ones used by the hotel.
The Pentahotel Prague is the ideal hotel to stay in if you’re looking to spend a weekend in Prague.
