Sheraton Prague hotel – where to stay in Prague
After my last days in the Philippines at the Amorita resort in Bohol, I took 3 flights to get from Cebu to Manila to Dubai and finally to Sheraton Prague. From very hot and humid tropical weather I made it straight to the cold winter in Czech republic. Just 35 Celsius degrees difference to the worse. Ouch, it hurts me just thinking about it.
Obviously, I had no warm clothes with me, but light jeans and a hoodie, so I asked my mum to bring me some stuff from home. And she said yes to a short Prague holidays. Mum literally saved me waiting for me at the Sheraton hotel once I got there from the Ruzyne airport late at night. After just a few minutes outside getting out of the taxi my fingers were frozen! So yes, a jacket and boots were definitely a good idea.
Let me be honest with you… I’ve been to Prague million times but it can never get too old. Could visit it over and over and still find it gorgeous.
What I liked at the Sheraton Prague hotel:
- location – Sheraton Prague is situated not right on any of the two main squares but it’s a walking distance from both of them. It took us walking just a few minutes from the hotel to the Wenceslas Square (Vaclavske namesti), and also to the Vltava river in other direction. We did not need to use any taxi nor public transportation during our stay again until our train out of Prague. And that’s exactly the best hotel location to me – not too busy but a walking distance from all the city attractions.
- our room with welcome fruit platter, very comfortable beds and pillows, a security box, a TV (with my name on the screen), modern bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities.
- wifi – wifi worked well in our room and also at the restaurant. After the bad wifi in the Philippines this seemed super fast to me. Definitely a highlight to me after a month with super slow wifi in the islands.
- lovely view from the rooftop High 8 – no need to wait for an event to take place at the High 8 on the top floor. You can just go up there and let
- buffet breakfast – very yummy, fruit (pineapple was the best), cereals, loads of pastry, cheese, ham, tea, coffee, juices, mushrooms, salads and other hot meals etc. You can also ask for soy milk which is what I did. I looked forward to breakfast already each evening O:)
- restaurant – everything was always ready there. My mum really appreciated the fact that each table was set up nicely each morning and then also during the day. We could enjoy lovely romantic atmosphere when having dinner at the Brasserie Delice restaurant. I had a vegan dinner on request – a pumpkin soup, grilled veggies with potatoes and really good fruit dessert. Mum tried the same but with a mushroom risotto for the main meal. Delicious!
- free bottles of water in our room every day
- rainfall shower – this is the detail I always look for and look forward to, too. And on those cold days after walking for up to 8 hours per day around Prague, I could not be more grateful for that awesome shower. It was very difficult to get out of it and walk to the warm bed, trust me. I could stay there for ever if only some food was served there. Or hot chocolate 😀
- the main entrance hall was decorated with really cool colorful chandeliers – we looked up at them each time we passed through the hall
- beautiful orchids in the hall and by the windows between the floors – I am a huge orchid lover and so is my mum. She noticed the orchids even before me and pointed them out to me
- pleasant staff at the reception and the restaurant – very sweet, welcoming and willing to accommodate us in the best possible way
- very clean hotel – my mum gives it thumbs up for the cleaniness. And to me it seemed even cleaner after staying in the jungle for 5 weeks before that where any kind of animals and bugs could walk around my room at any time. Not here at the Sheraton prague though 🙂
- small spa – there’s a dry Finnish sauna for all the guests (both men and women together) with a relaxation lounge. However, if you don’t visit in early hours to have more privacy, I do recommend you to book a sauna/jacuzzi just for you if you come with your partner/alone/friends. The guys who were sharing the sauna and then the relaxing room with us were loud and also drinking beer. So we could not relax at all. I know it depends on the guests but I do believe people should know it’s supposed to be quiet in the sauna. Which unfortunately, they did not so after one round in the sauna I gave up and left. Usually I go 3 or 4 times which can take me up to 4 hours together with relax in between the sauna sessions. Maybe next time. Tip: you can walk to the spa from your room just in slippers and a bathrobe and will get a towel and a sheet at the spa entrance.
- free gym and massages for a fee – if you get more time, do sweat out in the well equipped gym by the spa and then get a massage. I wish I could have tried a massage as one of those I had at Sheraton spa in Bratislava, but we were busy out exploring the beauty of Prague.
- computers with internet in the lobby – if you don’t have own laptopts with you and need to check internet, you can use the computers
- 6 meeting rooms – Sheraton Prague is a good hotel for meetings in the capital
- Make a Green Choice – each guest can participate in this program and say no to housekeeping. Thus for up to 3 days you can save water, electricity and products used for room cleaning. For each day you receive or 250 – 500 Starpoints or a $5/5 euro restaurant voucher. The hotel is trying to reduce environmental footprint as much as possible.
