This overview of Hotel Ungelt Prague offers a firsthand look at the area around the hotel and its details inside.
But we found out that describing the Ungelt is an interesting endeavor. It doesn't naturally fit the standard label of hotel.
Even on TripAdvisor it's categorized as a B&B / Inn. And, sometimes goes by the name Royal Residence Ungelt.
This may not seem like a big difference, but in Prague a residence will not always offer the same standards and services as a hotel.
Regardless, let's look at why the Ungelt is one of the best in the center of Prague?
First of all, the Ungelt can always count on good reviews just based on its location.
It's location is easy to describe... fantastic!
The Ungelt sits just beyond Old Town Square, in the shadows of St Tyn Church.
This means it's a few steps from most everything including the astronomical clock, Jewish Quarter, Wenceslas Square and other must-see places.
The Ungelt has just a few rooms. Actually these are more than your

Hotel Ungelt Prague is a unique hotel with large apartment suites. It's not a luxury hotel with all the fancy amenities.
So it's not for everyone. But, if you're looking for a quality, large room in Old Town then it will be suitable.
Honestly, we would like to see the rooms get an update. Some areas could use a new coat of paint and some renovation. But there is always a balance to find when booking a room in Prague, especially when you get below luxury standards.
