A nice hotel to stay I if you are on a low budget. The moment you walk in it looks different than anything else. everything is extremely open and easy to navigate. The people working at the check in are very understanding and sofisticsted. Out from the the bar you can see the main part of the theatre were they serve FREE breakfast. The food is great and is a real bonus due to the low cost. The building itself is a marvel to look at, the architecture and decor really add to the whole feel of sleeping in a theatre. When you first get into the room you will be scared of how small it is but you can really get used to it. There are no ways to cook food but you can always bring some chips or a pizza home. The room has a large roof and big glass windows and a small balcony. The beds make up the centre of the room and are quit comfortable. They clean your room frequently and everything is neat and tidy. The whole feel of a theatre transformed into a hotel makes for a great experience. The rooms are very small but still feel very roomy. The price is very affordable for all you get and is really just a great place to stay.
This is a very basic hotel, with clean but fairly rudimentary rooms. The big draw is the location - five/ten minutes on the tram to Wenceslas Sq etc. Also within walking distance of the main train station. Good selection of local bars and places to eat in the surrounding area. The hotel is divided between two bits of a large apartment block, so lots of different kinds of rooms.
Stayed for 2 nights, hotel was clean and tidy, air conditioning was good and much needed for the unusually hot 36 degree temperature during visit. Hotel not walking distance from town centre, but 207 bus was close to hotel and took 10-15 minutes into town. Can't comment on breakfast, wasn't up In time.
"Cheap hotel, but should tidy themselves up a bit"
The Hotel Gloria was an average hotel. My room was tidy, but the carpet was grubby, or at least looked grubby, meaning it certainly needed to be replaced. No tea/coffee facilities but I believe that applies to many hotels in eastern europe. My disappointment was with the front desk when I asked for a taxi. The girl called one, then explained to me that it would be 290 CZK + to my destination. I told her that I paid a taxi 140 CZK the previous day for the same trip. She told me they only use their private transport company..I told her that I don't want their preferred company, I just wanted a regular "AAA" cab. She refused to call a AAA cab for me, so I flagged one down outside the hotel in 3 mins. The fare was about 140 CZK like the previous day. Basically, beware of these private arrangements that these hotels have with transport companies. Just get a cab yourself, they're clearly marked and are metered. A cab from the city to the airport is also about 500 CZK metered, and Hotel Gloria want 630 CZK !!

Named after the Hussite leader Jan Zizka, winner of a historic battle against invading forces in 1420, this is an eastern suburb. A huge equestrian statue commemorates Zizka on Vitkov Hill, where the Communist-era National Monument (1927–32) symbolizes the Czech struggle for independence. Franz Kafka and the anti-Communist martyr Jan Palach lie buried in the extensive Olsany Cemeteries.
