Very nice hotel in a quiet location. Courteous and helpful staff. Excellent 'home cooked taste' food at reasonable prices in the restaurant. Inexpensive airport pick up and drop off. Lot less than other taxi services.

Чистый, уютный отель. Очень дружелюбный персонал. Замечательное расположение - всего 2 минуты от станции (при этом никакого шума транспорта), 10 минут езды до центра Праги. Кормили всегда вкусно и сытно. Очень тихий и спокойный квартал, рядом 2 пустых футбольных стадиона и лошадиная ферма.

Quick and cheap connection to downtown of Prague by regional trains during the day and in the evening.
If you drive to Prague, then the hotel Svornost is a good choice. It is a short drive from the highway, and has secure free parking. To get to Prague, it is a very short walk to the train stop, and a 15 minute ride to the city. The train only costs about a Euro one way. The hotel employees were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is older, but clean. We found our beds to be comfortable.
My overall stay at the Svornost I thought, was excellent and pleasant. Althougth it was too quiet at times as there not many other guests in the hotel and I did not speak the Czech language. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The meals at times were not as good as they could have been and lack of phones in the room and lack of internet access were a real downside. But if you do not mind this, this hotel is an excellent place to stay especially if you do not want to live in the crowded city center hotels and if you do not want to spend too much money on overated hotels. It would best suit a family travelling together or a quiet traveller who does not mind not having any company and just wishes to go about his own business. Although the hotel is located outside of Prague ( Prague 9 ), travel to the center of Prague is very easy. There are regular trains every 30 minutes that bring you to Masarykova station where you can then find your way wherever you want to go and it is cheap. It is only a short 2 - 3 minute walk to the train station and it is safe. So this could bring you to whatever exciting activity you want to do downtown and then you would retire to a quiet place at the end of it all. I would definitely Czech this place out before you spend too much unnecessary money on an expensive hotel at the center of Prague. Tomas, the hotel manager is very friendly and helpful as are all his staff.
Very nice hotel with a very easy access to the centre of Prague. It is just 3 stations by train and it takes not more than 20 minutes to get to the centre of the city. If you travel as a family buy a group ticket at the Praha Masarykovo Nadr. cash desk. It is much cheaper than single tickets. The room was very nice, breakfast nice and tasty. The staff is great. It is not a 5 star hotel but still a very decent place to stay.
A few tidbits about this hotel, and Prague in general that will hopefully help you plan your visit: (1) Don't count on anyone at the train station being able to speak English very well (and don't expect them to smile much either). Folks out in town and in the shops generally spoke better English than the people who are supposed to "help" you in the train stations. (2) The train to the hotel is pretty convenient, but you need to walk to the Masarykovo train station (about 10 mins or so) to buy tickets and ride the train from there - NOT THE MAIN TRAIN STATION!!! It took us two hours to figure that out and make our way of the main station (see comment #1 above). For two adults, two kids, it was 90 kc for each round trip ($6) - we didn't try to figure out any 24-hour pass deals (again, see comment #1 above). (3) The trains outside the hotel are loud at night, especially in the summer when you have the windows open. No a/c, so do you want to be hot or be woken up multiple times a night? (4) When booking, get your room rate in kc, not Euros or USD. Otherwise, plan to pay in cash, or plan to get gouged by the hotel with a really crappy exchange rate for using a credit card. (5) Breakfast was pretty decent - basic but definitely got the job done. (6) Get supplies out in town, as it's a residential area with only one convenience store (was closed when we were there). Good deals on groceries out in town (Billa store is close to the train station), and a fridge is available in the rooms. Overall, not that bad of a hotel once you figured it out, but I'd probably look around next time.
As we drove into prague this hotel was ideal. It is quite a long way from the city centre but has a train stop 5 minutes walk away and is reasonably close to a motorway exit. I really enjoyed the restaurant/ballroom. The food was reasonably priced and really pretty good. It was a fab room to eat in!
This was a very pleasant place, not impressive or near luxurious, but quite comfortable and good value. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. I have slept on some very hard mattresses in the Czech Republic (they seem to like it), fortunately the mattress in my room was not one of those. On the minus side, aside from the bed and wardrobe, the furnishing in the room was on the shabby side and the curtains were not adequate to keep the morning sun out. Service was excellent and the food was (by Czech standards) very good. There was a birthday party in the ballroom downstairs and the noise carried up, but ended early enough. However, people were below my window smoking and the smoke drifted up quite strongly, which I found objectionable. I was with a group which included 3 young children, and for a family group looking for reasonable comfort at a budget price the hotel was very good. This was my main reason for booking here. The distance from Prague town centre was not a problem as the train service was excellent and cheap.
Very good and rich breakfast. Very close to the train station.Only 15 minutes(with train) away from the Old city. Quiet area.
This was an excellent place to stay - at a budget price, but with tourist class facilities. It is ten miles from the centre of Prague, but it is literally two minutes walk from the hotel front door to the local railway station, from where it is 17 minutes (and not much more than 50p) on a comfortable modern suburban train to central Prague (Line S1 - three stops into Prague Masarykova Nadrazi), and this train runs every half hour until the middle of the evening, and then every hour. (Alternatively there is a bus from the end of the metro line, but this is more complicated than taking the train). Ten minutes walk from the hotel in the opposite direction brings you to a lovely wooded lake. The hotel is in a very pleasant suburb well beyond the city sprawl. Evening meals are available, again of very reasonable quality and variety, but at budget price. Most of the staff speak English at least moderately well, and all were welcoming. This is a local hotel that is also beginning to cater for foreign tourists and offers a comfortable stay at extremely reasonable prices. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others.
We stayed for 2 nights and chose this hotel because we had a car and it is outside of the city center. It is located in a residential area, close to a small train station. We parked for free and rode the train into the city each day. The staff was so nice and friendly, they went out of their way to help us. The food at the restaurant was excellent and the breakfast in the morning was great. It was perfect for us.
very good location nice area quite good meals available manager tomas very helpful
It was a nice staying in Svornost hotel , as we expected ; it is located in a quiet and selected area ,free space for parking (in front of hotel and in a courtyard-guarded parking ); it is a very good connection by train , every 30 min. with the centre of Prague ; the problem is that last train from Prague is at midnight, but for thouse who does not need to spend night time in center of Prague is OK.The personell was nice and ready to help .
very friendly and helpful staff. easy access to city centre on train (buy a 24hr day pass at reception - we bought ours at 3pm, explored the city all evening, then had till 3pm the following day). very good restaurant (the hungarian potato panckes were delicious!). we enjoyed our stay very much and would love to return.
Nice place to stay. Easy way to get there from the airport. Take the bus from the airport to the metro station. Get on the metro to the very last station. Take the 208 bus to the last station (all on that one ticket you bought at the airport for 26 czech crowns). Walk down for 200 yards and pass under the railway bridge, take the first road to the left and walk for another 500 yards and the hotel is there. It has a bar/restaurant. If you want to be away from the citycenter and among the local people, stay at this place. Travel time from the hotel to the city center less than an hour and comfortable.
Located on a suburb of Prague this lovely village place is an ideal for those who looks for peace of mind. Personal is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is quite rich, especially when it is included in price of room. The only things can be noticed are old-fashioned armchairs.
Czech are very friendly people
Very friendly staff. Had a suite, with on-suite bathroom, room was far larger than expected. Staff went out of their way to speak English and assist with any queries. Located 1min walk from train station, then a quick 20min direct train ride to the heart of Prague. English TV channels. Can't wait to return to Svornost. Highly recommended.
Super quality versus price. Over all it was a supper journey.I recomand this hotel to all.
A great bargain if you don't mind not taking part in the Prague nightlife. The last train back to the hotel leaves around midnight. The train itself was very convenient and very inexpensive. The hotel was neat and simple. Our quad room had four single beds, table w/ 4 chairs, a wardrobe, a separate room with a sofa and TV, and a bathroom. A shower curtain around the tub would be a nice addition! Breakfast was simple, but adequate. The staff was very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.
Very friendly, nice and always smiling staff. Big rooms with old fashion furnitures. Rich breakfast buffet. Hard to find by car. Relatively easy transportation to Prag centrum but take into consideration the inconvenience on time table of Trains.
Very good hotel, excellent price/quality rate. Train station for traveling to the center of Prague is only 4 minutes walk away. Very recommendable...
We so enjoyed staying at this hotel. The Train was quite close and we really enjoyed the breakfast each morning. The Pub was quite special too. Thanks...... We spent 3 nights here and would do it again.
Difficult to find. Google map was not accurate. Good hotel for the price. Easy access to downtown, if the trains are running. Weekend we were there the trains were not running downtown because of track repair. Good to leave car at hotel and use public transport. Good restaurant at hotel and good breakfast buffet.
Great little place outside the city, but very accessible-the train is literally a 3 minute walk and goes every 30 minutes, very convenient and great if you want to get away from the crowd. location in ADORABLE village. staff is very nice.
L'accueil a été on ne peut plus chaleureux.Personnel tres serviable. L'hotel correspondait tt a fait a nos attentes malgre le style un peu suranne. Restaurant sur place prix modéré et carte variee. La gare pour le centre de Prague est à2mn à pied mais le seul probleme a ete l'irregularite du train de banlieue.
The hotel is outside of the city but it is a short commuter train ride into the city. It was pleasant to spend the day in the busy city then return to the peace of the suburbs. The hotel staff were very welcoming and accomodating. Our family of four were very comfortable in our spacious room.
An excellent base for a family to visit Prague. The train into Prague is no problem. The hotel was excellent value for money, the staff were very helpful and welcoming. Breakfasts were good. Restaurant and terrace available for food during the day and evening, if required. If you stay for six nights staff will pick you up from the airport which is great. Once you know the city, the return to the airport on public transport is easy and very cheap less than one pound sterling and can be done in less than 90 minutes. We would go stay again as the family room was ideal.
Lovely hotel with very competent and friendly staff. You have to plan carefully to get there for the first time from the airport but the advice on Venere from other users was very helpful. We took bus 119 from airport then metro to Masarykovo nàdr railway station. Train from there to Dolna Poternice. The whole journey took just over an hour and total cost was about 1 euro each (20K ticket). Then its a very short walk up the lane and turn right. Food at hotel was very good. Charged at hotel rack rate which was slightly more (23 euros more in total bill of 503 euros) than quoted on Venere. Easy, safe and cheap to get into city centre by train.
My wife and I spent 3 nights here in Apr-2007. The price was excellent and we were glad to be away from the crowds in the city. It is VERY easy to get into Prague (the hotel is in a suburb). From the hotel it is a 3 minute walk to the station and takes only 15 minutes once you're on the train. The staff was very friendly, all spoke English and had answers to all of our questions. There's a nice little store at the bottom of the hill (by the park) where they sell beer, food, etc. We would stay here again.
I had realy nice time. People were very kind and helpfull. The rail way station is very closed to the hotel. There is a pretty lake just near the hotel. I enjoyed it after a long and tired day in Prague. The place is quiet. I went to the hotel by taxi from the bus station of Florenc, it cost around 400 courones (14 Euros). but it's only around 70 cents by the train. This railway station is linked with the Masarykovo nàdr railway station(it's the third station)This station is just near by the Florenc bus station. I enjoyed the hotel and Prague one of the most beautyfull town I saw...
The hotel staff are excellent. Even though on arrival in Prague airport we have pre-arranged the limo service from the hotel but the staff was late around 1 hr due traffic jam, we still satisfy their service. All staff are very helpful and the surrounding are good. Only the hotel location are inconvience. Train is the only transport to down town and need to wait 1 hr if you miss the train. Suggest to take limo from airport to htl othervise you need to go down town first and then take the train to htl.
An excellent way to do Prague if you don't mind being home before midnight. The pickup from the airport went well. The train service was cheap (it's included in the Prague all-in pass) as well as quick. You need to remember that the train into Prague is on the *hotel* side of the line; that there is a subway under the line coming back; that trains into Prague run late, so check the destination with the timetable the hotel give you - same on the way back, it can be 'Kolin' or 'Cerny Brod'. The people in the hotel were the friendliest Czechs we met, and Dolni itself is rather nice. The whole thing makes a good life-support system. One of the best-value things we've ever done.
We stayed here for a few days of vacation in Prague. The hotel was clean and had a pleasant atmosphere. Though it was outside of town, it was nice to return to a place away from the tourist crowds. Definitely use the train, not the bus when going downtown (15 min vs. 40min), if you don't have much time, though riding the bus was a great opportunity to experience more of the local flavor. The hotel staff was very welcoming, helpful and spoke english fluently. Breakfast was very good, buffet style, something for everyone.
Very friendly family run hotel, we were picked up at the airport on time and taken back very efficiently. Hotel is about 16K out of town but in a lovely quiet location the only noise was from the railway line but it never bothered us at all. The station is only about 3 minutes walk from the hotel with at least one train per hour into Prague centre 24 hour ticket only 3E. Nice park nearby and walk by the lake. Overhaul very friendly and clean Tomas spoke excellent english and gave us a running commentry about the area as we travelled back to airport. wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Richard
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants quality accommodation at fair rates. The restaurant was excellent, the included breakfast was generous, the staff helpful and the room was clean and quiet. There is a scenic park and lake close by - great for recreation. The passing parade in the hotel bar was quite entertaining.
Petit Hotel trés sympathique, au personnel charmant et serviable. Les chambres sont propres et bien équipées. Le petit déjeuner (buffet)est trés correct. Il y a un parking gratuit. L'hotel est trés bien situé par rapport aux transports collectifs trés bien cadencés(3 mn à pied de la gare et 15 minutes de train pour le centre de Prague. Bref un trés agréable séjour pour un excellent rapport qualité prix
This is a beautiful family run hotel where you are made to feel at home. It is 15 minutes out of town but a 2 minute walk to the train station and well worth it. The hotel meals were great and they hotel owners couldn't be more welcoming. The building is a beautiful old pub just like the photo and the rooms inside are modern and comfortable.
Make sure to check the destination name on the front of the train into Prague. I have noticed that several people who stayed here ended up going to wrong way to Prague just like we did.
pour les français, je vous déconseille vivement cet hôtel Svornost. En voici quelques raisons, parmi d'autres: - personne ne parle français. - le prix est exorbitant par rapport à la qualité des services, à la propreté de la chambre (la moquette de notre chambre était sale, l'impression générale était de assez "crasseux") - les meubles, le décor de la chambre très triste. - en ce qui concerne le silence, nous avons été accueillis par une bande d'ivrognes qui "séjournait" sur les bancs du bar de cet établissement.le samedi soir, ils ont accueilli un mariage local, on n'a pas pu dormir jusqu'à l'aube. en outre, l'hôtel est situé en bordure de la route, on entend les voitures passer. - quant au prix de 60 euros, nous avons constaté, une fois rentrés, que sur notre carte de crédit on nous a retiré 65 euros par nuit, malgré les propos rassurants des Tchèques comme quoi c'était un problème de conversion de la monnaie locale! - le personnel très peu serviable: on nous a vite attiré l'attention que nous avons garé la voiture un peu en biais; le ton était mal poli, commanditaire. Cet hôtel montre l'état général de cette ville, Prague: les occidentaux sont considérés comme des vaches à lait; c'est une belle ville touristique et tout le monde , j'ai l'impression, vit sur les vestiges du passé et sur la "traite" qu'ils font sans aucun remord aux occidentaux. ils ont adopté les prix occidentaux, en oubliant que la qualité et l'hospitalité doivent suivre. un dernier conseil: achetez-vous un bel album de prague, comme ça vous ne regretteriez pas!
very nice hotel, excellent service
I would recommend if you're not against using public transportation. It's a nice place at only 3 stations of city center.
Excellent family run hotel. Competent and friendly staff thath made us feel at home. Would Definitely stay teh next time we visit Prague.
Loin de la ville(mais assez facilement accessible en train...quand on arrive à obtenir les bonnes informations...),plutôt "ancienne Europe de l'est" mais propre et tranquille. Très bon petit-déjeuner
Nice hotel. Easy to get to towncenter by train.
Un hotel encantador, con un ambiente agradable y un personal muy amable y muy atento. Genial. Repetible y muy recomendable.
This hotel has a very convenient position and is ideal if you come by car (free secured parking). You can buy train tickets at the reception and be in the centre of Prague in about 20 minutes. The staff members are very nice. The only negative point is that the towels were rather "basic" and only changed once in a week. On the whole, this accommodation is really worth its price.
we had a wonderful time eventhough they've posponed p.collins concert which is the main reason of our visit.though the hotel is 15 minutes away from central prague,still we enjoyed the adventure of getting lost(coz we took the wrong train at first,it says Kolin but it goes in different direction)we managed to find our way back to the hotel.staff are very friendly and helpful.food is superb,we enjoyed every minute of our stay.highly recommended.
Only a 3 day break but we could not fault this hotel.Staff were very helpful,breakfast plentyful,The hotel is about 15 kilometres from the centre of prague, but the station is only a two minute walk from the hotel. This hotel is ideal if you wish to be away from the hustle and bustle from the centre of prague but quite rural. This hotel is value for money.
Ein nettes, sauberes Hotel ca. 11 km ausserhalb von Prag, aber sehr gut und preiswert mit dem Zug (Linie S1, Kolin) zu erreichen. Leider etwas laut wegen der nahen Bahntrasse. - Das Personal war sehr freundlich und aufgeschlossen. Wir würden bei einem erneuten Besuch von Prag dort wieder einkehren!
I had a great stay. Just a 15 minute train ride from Prague, costing about 50p each way. The staff were generally friendly, especially on reception who were very helpful. There was ample breakfast served from 6 - 10am, so there was plenty of chance to get eat in the morning. The rooms were clean and tidy.
Il psato è lontano da praga, in località Pocernice. Ben collegata di giorno ma un po' problematico di sera e soprattutto assolutamente sbagliata la mappa su venere. I proprietari sono molto gentili; le stanze sguarnite ma abbastanza pulite. Nell'insieme un buon posto per chi usa l'albergo solo per dormire. Ah, un'informazione: portate sempre delle lenzuola con voi, in questi paesi non si usano!
The Hotel is located quite distant from the City of Prague. There is a train which links the hotel to the city centre, but I you lose the train you have to wait for the next one, generally 1 hour after!!! Also the last train leaves at midnight, so you are forced to came back at the hotel. This is the only real drawback - for the remaing, the hotel has a normal-good price/quality relationship.
Cosy Hotel. Lovely welcome, staff very helpful. Great location.
The location map on the web is very misleading as the hotel is actually way out in the suburbs about 16 km from the centre. In desperation we hired a taxi to find it. However, the hotel was excellent in every respect and very good value for money. The train service into Prague was very convenient, clean and reasonable. We would certainly use the hotel again, but PLEASE amend the website to show the correct location as we wasted a lot of time trying to find it.
The hotel is NOT located in the Jewish district as stated on the website. It's actually way outside of town; a 15min. train ride to the center of town. However, the train station is a minute walk from hotel and its just 3 stops to town. Quality is what you would expect for the price. Maid service wasn't that great; forgot soap, towels, etc... but people were friendly. Breakfast (which is included) was ok.
At first I was nervous, as the hotel is in a quiet residential area, but access to the train is very easy, and in 20 minutes you are in the city center. I found it was nice to return to somewhere quiet where I could have a good meal and talk to other travelers at the end of the day. The attic rooms do get a little hot though and there are no windows that open. Still I would reccommend this hotel for someone who wants a good bargain.
Traditional hotel with limited but clean facilities. Most staff helpful and welcoming but locals frequenting the facilities can take some getting use to.
This is a very friendly and cheap hotel compared to what you would pay in the centre of Prague and is good value for money. Be aware though, you are in the outer suburbs! And it is a 20 min taxi ride back from town if you miss the train, and the map on the web led us to believe it was much closer. Trains into Prague are good however.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. It is like a diamond in the rough. The rooms are quaint, clean, and quiet. The employees went out of their way to ensure our stay was pleasurable. As for the location, its far away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. However, the train that takes you into the city is only a one block walk from the hotel, and they sell the tickets at the front desk. The tickets ran about 6KC, which is around $2.50 per person round trip. The trains run early in the morning until around 22:30 at night. Just remember when you are heading back to the hotel, take the train marked Kolin, you will exit the train on the third stop.....we didn't know that the first day and we were a bit confused. They have a little bar and restaurant for evening dining....the food was excellent. Breakfast is served in the mornings and is more than substantial to send you on your way. I can't say enough good things about this hotel and would definitely stay there on my next visit.
It was a very nice place to stay. Only 300 m away from the railway station which was very convenient to get to the centre of Prague!
Il n'est pas clairement indique que l'hotel est a plus de vingt kilometres du centre ville. Il est toutefois desservi par un train dont la gare est a une minute de l'hotel. Toutefois il est difficile de rester tres tard le soir en ville car le dernier train est vers 0h20.
