Residence Leon D'Oro Prague Reviews
Perfect location, not so perfect hotel Apr 13, 2011
The Residence Leon is in the heart of Old Town in Prague. Turn one direction out of the hotel and you are steps from Old Town Square, turn the other direction and you are at Wenceslas Square. It really is a perfect location. It is also right down the street from Havelská Market which is a great place to buy souvenirs and fruit. Take the map you can get at the front desk. You will most definitely need it!
My room was very big with a separate living area and bedroom. There was a mini-kitchen that was useful for the small number of groceries I bought. It was also nice to have the extra room to spread out.
I read online ahead of time that the elevator was under construction. When I wrote to the hotel, they assured me it would be completed by the time I was checking in on April 14th. Unfortunately, this did not happen and they hadn't finished the elevator even by the time I checked out on April 19th. It was more than just the elevator, but the entire hallway leading up to my 4th floor walk-up was basically under construction. The hallways were very dusty and the construction started very early in the day.
As another reviewer said, they didn't clean the room very often. I think out of the 5 days I was there it was only cleaned 2 times. I had to ask for toilet paper since they didn't clean towards the end of my trip.
Spotty wi-fi, at best
On my second to last day, the hot water broke. It was broken for more than 18 hours. The hotel didn't really see this as a big deal even though lots of guests were complaining. I understand that it broke on a Sunday afternoon when repair shops might be closed, but we couldn't shower until late in the day on Monday and from what I knew the hotel was fully booked.
If the water was working and the elevator and hallway construction was finished, I wouldn't have too many complaints about this hotel. The location made up for some of it. Also, I got a great deal online which gave me a free night so this definitely helped alleviate some of the issues I had with the hotel.
