The prices at this 4 star hotel can be as low as €38 for a double or as high as €140 depending on the time of the year and who you book with. This is why we recommend booking with because they show rates from 30 websites and have all the hotels in Prague on their website, so you're guaranteed the lowest prices.

The Popelka Hotel Smichov Prague is about half the price of similar hotels in Smichov because it is a 10 minute walk to the metro station whereas most Smichov hotels are based around Andel and the new shopping mall. However, this newly opened four star the "Cinderella" (Popelka is Czech for Cinderella) has the benefit of being exceptionally well priced, clean, modern, housed in a traditional Czech building, being small enough to offer great personal service plus, it is on a beautiful street between two parks, giving this city hotel a country feel. This mix is well appreciated by past guests who consistently rank it 4/5 and higher.

Recent Review: "We stayed in hotel popelka for 3 nights in August. The hotel was charming, very spacious and modern. The room was very clean and bathroom was very elegant. The hotel was in a great location, just outside of the city center, however I would recommend looking into getting tickets for the tram as we didn't do this and we ended up exploring everywhere by foot. The tram stop was only 5 minutes from the hotel. There was lots of choice at breakfast, cereals, fruit, hot food- eggs, bacon and beans and sausage. The service at reception was great, 24hour service and very friendly, multilingual staff, we were also able to leave our luggage there after we'd checked out as we had a later flight. The hotel is very quiet and so we had no trouble sleeping, as it was on the outskirts the city, between two parks and it was very peaceful."

Location of the Popelka Hotel Smichov Prague:

The drawback of this cheap 4 star is the location, however, like everything in life this depends on your viewpoint. If you like to be surrounded by greenery on a city break and still be able to walk into the centre of the city then you will love the location. If you want to get to where you are going in a hurry and don't like to explore a city by foot then you will prefer to choose a hotel that is located next to the metro stop. That said, this hotel is just 1 street over from the tram stop and the tram is about 0.60€ so the saving you make here at the hotel will pay for the tram and a meal in a restaurant every day. €38 is astounding value for a 4 star hotel in any sizeable European city.
