This Pentahotel Prague review, gives you a breakdown of what to expect from one of Prague’s ultramodern hotel.
When it comes to finding the perfect accommodation in Prague, Penta hotel Prague is a hidden gem that ticks all the right boxes. Located in the heart of the city, this stylish hotel offers a unique blend of comfort, convenience, and charm. During my recent visit to Prague, I had the pleasure of staying at Pentahotel Prague, and I must say, it exceeded all my expectations.
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, if you are wondering where to stay in Prague on your visit.
I book a three-night stay at the Pentahotel in Prague through Booking.com (Pentahotel breakfast not included).
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) and is one of the best area to stay in Prague.
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 Charming Lobby: Unique Check-In and Relaxing Atmosphere
One of the standout features of Pentahotel Prague is its charming lobby. Instead of the traditional check-in counter, the hotel has a bar counter where guests are checked in. This unique approach immediately sets the tone for a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. I found this refreshing, as it created a more personal and friendly experience right from the start.
The lobby boasts ample seating areas, flat screen TV making it a perfect spot to unwind or meet fellow travellers. I particularly loved the ambiance created by the burning candles, which added a touch of warmth and intimacy to the space. To top it off, there is a pool table and game consoles available for those who want to have some fun and engage in friendly competition.
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 hotel staff.
Room Experience: Comfort and Amenities at Pentahotel Prague
I stayed in a Penta single room (as I was travelling solo) for a three day city break. My room was spacious with small, interesting and 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 in Prague with 100 brochures. Other room amenities included air conditioning, free wifi and a in room safe.
As breakfast was not included in my stay, I didn’t get a chance to eat in the hotel restaurant, however they do a buffet breakfast. But I did order the PentaBurger from there limited room service menu and it was nice and juicy (I highly recommend trying it).

Pentahotel Prague 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 wifi. 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. It is one of the coolest hotels in Prague and I really liked the vibe and hipster interior of the hotel. It caters to my travel style and the rooms are affordable. The property amenities includes a fitness center and also has onsite parking for those who are driving to Prague.
This property also offers transfers from the airport and train station. From the hotel’s location, is within walking distance of the main tourist attraction in Prague with ease and only cost 110 CZK to get a day pass for the Metro.
