The Unitas – A Hotel With History in Prague

Vltava River, Prague

This modest, but well located hotel is unlike many others in the city for its history, if nothing else. The Unitas Hotel building complex began in the 18th century as a Prague church and convent and later became home to the State Secret Police in the Communist era. In fact, future Czech Republic President, Vaclav Havel, was imprisoned here.

But don’t let this stark history deter you, the Unitas is a comfortable place that is easy on the wallet. Double rooms can start as low as 84 Euro a night, which is a bargain for a hotel that is well placed right between New and Old Town. If you’re arriving by train or plane, there is a subway station close by which further enhances the appeal of the Unitas.

All of the major sites are within easy walking distance, as are many great restaurants and bars. If you don’t feel like walking, most destinations are a quick cab ride or subway trip away.

While I would rate the hotel more of a three star rather than the four they advertise, the rooms are airy and clean and both the Unitas and the surrounding area are very quiet at night.  The daily breakfast was good, if not pretty standard. However, it was more than enough to provide sustenance for the day.

Unitas is a good hotel for young couples or those who don’t want to pay exorbitant rates for hotels that are no better situated than the Unitas.

  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both
    educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt
    for something concerning this.
