Prague’s Residence Leon d’Oro Hotel

| September 17, 2014

It’s never easy to book a large room in Europe.  When I searched for a hotel in Prague that was appropriate for us, Sequoia, and my adult stepdaughter Krystol to all share a room, it was slim pickins–and being in Easter Market season didn’t help.  I was pleased, then, to find Residence Leon d’Oro, located not far from Old Town.



The Lowdown:


Large enough; one of the beds was in a separate, closed room

Excellent breakfast buffet in a lovely room

Located on the charming street of the outdoor market Havelske Trziste (Havel’s Market), where souvenirs, toys, and fresh produce were sold, many at cheaper prices than in town

Well situated for the Old Town side of the river, between Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square


Multi-lingual staff (languages we witnessed included English, Romanian, and German)


It was not a quiet location, so our sleep was fitful.  I would not have called our room soundproof.  At all.

The foyer doorway reeked of smoke.  The residence itself is non-smoking and the room was fine, but as soon as you step into the doorway of the hotel, you know where everyone goes to smoke.

Would I stay there again?  Probably

Location: Havelska 29, 11000 Praha
