During one of my trips to Prague I spent two nights at the lovely Lindner Hotel Prague Castle.
The Lindner is an elegant and upscale hotel with a great location.
Steps away is the Strahov Monastery. The Prague Castle is five minutes away on foot.
At the Lindner Hotel you’ll have everything needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
In this post I want to share my review of the Lindner Hotel Prague Castle.
Sharing my experience will give you guys a better idea of what to expect!
Let’s jump right it into it…
Staying at The Lindner Hotel Prague Castle
The Lindner Hotel Prague Castle is part of the Lindner chain of hotels.
This is a family owned hotel company based out of Germany. The chain has more than 30 hotels throughout Europe.
Although it’s part of a hotel chain the Lindner Hotel retains its unique charm.
Entering the property leads you through a covered passageway into a sprawling courtyard. Here guests are rewarded with incredible views of the monastery and surrounding scenery.
The hotel was once part of the monastery. The former stables would have been located in the current lobby area.
Prague is a very busy city and it’s always full of tourists but as soon as the door shut behind you as you enter the hotel all of the problems of city life melt away and you’re left with a traditional design and luxurious interior that immediately puts you at ease.
A Review of the Lindner Hotel Prague Castle
Check-In and Interior
Outside of the entrance to the hotel lobby is a sprawling courtyard. Instead of dealing with busy sidewalk to reach the hotel you can peacefully make your way to the building while admiring the monastery.
Don’t forget to stop and catch your breath in the quiet courtyard.
In the center of the courtyard you’ll find benches where you can relax after a long day of exploring the city. You can enjoy some fresh air before heading back to your room.
The lobby has maintained its historic layout.
The vaulted ceilings and arched passageway allude to its rich history.
The entirety of the lobby is well-lit, thanks to the large windows that let in plenty of natural lighting.
Comfortable seating is available throughout the lobby space.
There is also a selection of different pieces of artwork including paintings, sculptures, and small statues.
The check-in process was quick and straightforward.
After a conversation with the concierge it was time to check out the hotel room.
The Room (Double Room with Courtyard View)
On the way to the room I couldn’t help but notice that the hallways were also very well lit again thanks to the many windows that let in plenty of natural light and overall I was quite pleased with the minimalist yet tastefully designed interior of the hotel.
When I made it to my room and opened the door I was quite pleased with the overall layout and space of the room and the only immediate drawback that I noticed was the very small window.
With the rest of the hotel being so bright I was actually quite surprised by the small window in the room and although there was a courtyard view where I could see the monastery off in the distance I was still unimpressed with the tiny window space that didn’t let in too much light at all.
The main living space consisted of a small couch, coffee table, desk and a large bed along with plenty of options for storage.
Having a full size desk is always a good thing especially for those working online or travel bloggers like myself and both my girlfriend and I really appreciated having the small couch to use to relax on after a long day of exploring.
The bed was quite comfortable and thanks to the small window I was able to get plenty of sleep since there was no natural light being let into the room early in the morning.
The room also came equipped with an air conditioner so I was able to stay quite cool despite the unusual late-summer heat that Prague was experiencing so close to October.
I did notice quite a few wall outlets for charging electronics although I think they could have been better placed for easier access.
Overall, the room featured a very traditional design with classical style colors, lighting, and a very traditional wall motif right above the bed.
I found the bathroom to be surprisingly spacious and especially modern compared to the rest of the traditionally designed hotel interior.
Equipped with both a dedicated bathtub and a separate stand up shower the bathroom took on an otherwise standard layout and was definitely a reasonable size for one or two people to use for a short-term stay.
The marble countertop on the sink and the tiled walls gave it a very luxurious feel and I really appreciated the small details along the edge of the tiles and featured in the center of the tiles throughout the bathroom space.
While there were amenities provided such as shampoo and body lotion I was quite surprised to find that rather than using a dedicated soap bar the hotel opted to use push pumps with an unnamed soap instead.
I found this very unusual and this did not fit in at all with the otherwise luxurious and classy style of the rest of the hotel.
Depending on the type of room you choose you can find rates for the Lindner Hotel Prague Castle starting at around.
Not all of the rates include breakfast so be sure to find a rate that includes it if you’re interested in eating at the hotel.
Given the location and quality of the hotel I find this price to be quite reasonable and it offers plenty of value compared to the other accommodation in the city.
As always, I recommend booking as soon as you have confirmed your travel dates so you’re able to take advantage of the best possible rates and avoid any issues with room availability.
One of the best things about the hotel is its location.
Not only is it steps away from the Strahov Monastery but it’s also a short 10-minute walk to the Prague castle and the popular tram line 22 stops right out front of the hotel so you’re able to reach all of the main sites in the city very quickly.
Also nearby to the hotel you’ll find a selection of restaurants, cafes, bars and small shops and while it’s not centrally located in the old town it does offer a peaceful and quiet area where you don’t have to worry too much about the hordes of tourists or loud partiers.
The hotel breakfast was very well done and I would definitely recommend booking a rate that comes with breakfast included to be able to take advantage of a hearty early morning meal before heading out to explore the city.
At breakfast a selection of both hot and cold food items were available to choose from as well as a selection of coffee and juices.
For the hot food items you’re able to choose from a selection of eggs, cooked meat like sausage or bacon, vegetables, and there’s even the possibility to enjoy a freshly cooked waffle.
The cold items included such things as cereals, juices, sliced meats, yogurt, pastries, and a selection of different fresh breads with jam and butter to choose from.
Breakfast is held in the hotel restaurant and there’s plenty of seating to choose from although I would still recommend arriving as early as possible so that you can take advantage of the biggest selection as well as avoid the bulk of the people arriving to eat.
Having just left the Pentahotel where I had an issue with the internet I was worried that the Lindner Hotel was also going to have for internet considering it was a traditional hotel and I assume it targeted an older demographic.
Thankfully, I was quite wrong in my assumptions and at the hotel I was able to enjoy a reliable Wi-Fi connection and speeds that were high enough to upload photos and stream online videos.
There is also a premium connection that you can order at the hotel although I found the basic connection to be more than suitable enough for my needs.
Parking and Accessibility
While I didn’t drive to the hotel I did notice that there was parking right out front inside the courtyard although I believe it’s quite expensive at a cost of 25 EUR per day.
The courtyard parking appeared to be quite secure and if I was leaving my car there I wouldn’t worry at all about its safety throughout the night.
As for accessibility, it’s extremely easy to reach the hotel using public transit or by taking an Uber from the airport, train station or bus station depending on where you arriving from.
Some of the main sites nearby such as the monastery and the Prague Castle are easily accessible on foot and for anything else there is this tram line 22 that stops right out front of the hotel and can be reached in less than 2 minutes walking.
Overall, I found the Lindner Hotel Prague Castle to be one of the best hotels in Prague that I’ve ever stayed at.
I would compare it in quality and comfort to the 5-star Hotel Savoy just down the street and I would argue that you receive a lot more value at the Lindner.
The location is great for exploring the city, especially if you want to explore the castle early in the day or late at night when there are aren’t any around, and it’s very accessible as well so there’s never any problems when it comes to getting around or reaching the hotel.
I would definitely recommend checking out the Lindner Hotel Prague Castle if you’re looking for a comfortable and enjoyable place to stay in Prague that’s far from all of the tourist crowds but still close enough that everything can be easily reached without much effort.
