Have you ever missed your early morning flight? I did and it was an awful experience. It happened about two years ago and nearly ruined my planned 3 week travel. I have been often worried about the morning flights since then.
Navigating to the airports in the early hours simply sucks. Prague Airport is no exception – unless you are ready for the dodgy night bus ride, it’s better to spend the night at the airport.
Before my cycling trip to Taiwan, I got to stay at Courtyard Prague Airport. It was super relaxing and stress free night. With their flawless wake up service, one has no chance at all to actually miss a fight. There is simply no way!
Courtyard Prague Airport is located directly at Vaclav Havel Airport Prague between the Terminal 1 and 2, featuring the direct covered walkway from Terminal 2.
The location is really genius – staying at Courtyard Prague Airport means waking us literally just few steps away from the boarding gates. It’s a great time and energy saver. Where closer can you be, than in hotel with both terminals at its doorway?
The rooms are spacious and do provide comfort that one seeks before the long flight. My room also had large desk where I could finish some working tasks from my computer before having a shower and finally going to bed.
The windows are sound proof, so nothing is disturbing the sleep. There are massive curtains that can cover the whole window, perfect for people who might be recovering from the jet lag:)
THE FACILITIES AND SERVICE
Really pity I missed the breakfast – it must be amazing! However, the receptionist offered the breakfast package (even without prior booking). The reception staff is friendly and helpful.
I can point out their precise and reliable wake up service. They really care that one does not miss their flights: first, there is an automatic wake up call, and then they also call you to make sure you actually woke up. As I misplaced my phone after the first call, the receptionist actually came up to my room – thumbs up for him making sure I was awake:)
The hotel restaurant Oleo Pazzo is located on the second floor overlooking the airport. It’s specialized in Mediterranean cuisine and features an show kitchen. Hint: try the beef cheeks, they are super tasty!
There is also fitness room and conference facilities – the conference rooms feature cute names such as Navigator, Pilot and Captain.
MY PERSONAL HIGHLIGHT
I loved that my room hat direct view to Terminal 1 and 2. I guess this is a nice spot if you want to watch the plane traffic around. Even though I had such a big and exhausting trip ahead (including 14 hours flight from Frankfurt to Taipei), it was still possible to relax. It made me calm down to watch the terminal and know that I am just one minute walking from it:)
Starting price for doubles in Courtyard Prague Airport is 3200 CZ (US$126). You can head to hotel website to find the detailed rates.
