Really friendly staff, great location in middle of old town and about 5 mins walk from the train station. Lovely old property. Only issue was, my particular bed was with spring which was old, so when I sleep on it, it just sunk in really deep. but other beds in the room seemed fine.


We arrived at the Royal Road Residence to find out that we had been double booked (and weren't told earlier via email or when we dropped off our bags) and were shifted to a horrible hostel down the road overnight. We were not offered a free breakfast or even a refund or discount - as they were going to use our money to pay for the hostel room. Staff were really not professional. Rooms are fitted out clean and breakfast was fine but it is NOT complimentary. But overall a bad experience.

It is a great place to stay. We visited Prague from a couple of days and we love the situation, just in the middle of Karlov Street.


The location is perfect!!! One-minute walk from old town square and Charles Bridge. Staff are also quite friendly. The only problem is that we do not have a garbage can in our room, which is a little bit annoying. Definitely will recommend to other friends!


Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was perfect. Had a really enjoyable stay. Thank you for helping make our visit so wonderful with your tips and advice. Our visit to Prague would not have been the same without it!
