Reviews of Shopping in Prague
Love Manufaktura. I got the anti-acne gel for my teen son and it works! Will definitely buy again if I get the chance.
Improved from previous experience, very helpful vendor
Lovely shop with great selection of incredible pipes: was hoping to see something to buy.
Arogant jerks at Andel shop. They dont have needed skills or knowledge about apple products. If they dont smell money from you they will give you poor service. First time I was there i was buying my macbook pro they would lick my balls and begging me to let them suck me. Other time when I had problem with it because it was not charging, they were literaly running away from me and making excuses that manager isnt at shop today and they are not authorized to accept claims against warranty. Needles to say, Ive called to apple support (still had 5months left on premium support) and theyve collected it from appartment and two days later I had "my" mac back again. Not entirely mine because it was brand new. Be aware they are not Apple but merely authorized RE-sellers. Im warning you rather, take your time buy a ticket do Dressden and buy your Apple product at certified Apple store.
I like to go Prague and settle there how it is possible
The shop moved to address náměstí Republiky 656/8, Prague 1, Kotva department store. Large selection of cigars, pipes and accessories.
Great shopping mall. Very peaceful.
I love all the products, luckily my son lives in Prague so is able to bring me over what I like. Always visit the shop and stock up. My favourite is beer shampoo, shower gels and the best soaps ever. Great discovery! Have visited Prague nine times and have to shop at Manufaktura first chance I get.
I just love this shop. I visited the one at Melantrichova 17 in May, 2015 and left with gifts for just about everyone on my list, including me! Lovely hand creams, cleansers, pottery, traditional Czech eggs, and more. Very helpful and accommodating sales staff. The cashier was kind enough to mention that I might wish to claim a refund on the VAT and provided me with the pre-printed paperwork so that I could more easily apply for the refund. I spend over $100.00 American so it was worth it. I recommend this shop as one which I believe you can purchase items that are truly made in the Czech Republic.
DO NOT GO THERE ... it was a very good shop, but it is now closed down.
Great little Susti corn husk dolls. And those cut-out eggs made with a dentist drill and the painted eggs. Amazing. Traditional handmade crafts are always worth paying for.
Love the Original Beer Cosmetics so much I'm coming back for more all the way from Australia :)
During my second visit to Prague I discovered Manufaktura 100% Sensitive Face Care. I absolutely love it! Never used anything like it. Came onto this website hoping to order more.
Go there and ask for her name! (and tell us of course!) And buy the best tobbacco!
Go there, buy excelent pipes and fines tobaccos and meet the most beautiful seller you can meet in Europe!
Why Baker Street doesn´t publish thousand of pics of this pretty woman? She really is fantastic! Go ahead!
Oh Yes! The woman who attents the store is really beautiful. I went inside to buy motiv matches and met her and almost couldn´t speak! What´s her name? or her e mail? VISIT THE STORE TO KNOW HER AND MAKE ONE REVIEW!
I love you cosmetics, I tried beer face cream and it was great.
Good guys. Gave me a lead for my battery charger free, gratis & for nothing. Also stopped me saying thank you dick instead of thank you very much.
Prague's iStyle store should be shut down by Apple because of the bad name they give this great line of products. Period. I have seen better Apple stores in 3rd world countries than in overstated Prague. But most importantly, iStyle has nothing (nothing) to do with level of service you get in Apple stores in the States. Forget "Genius Bar" run by super knowledgeable teenagers. You won't find them iStyle in Prague. I think Czechs have to come to realization what kind of product they deal with - and most importantly - to learn what are true rudiments of Customer Service in developed countries. So far, it has been nothing but disaster. If you wanna buy Apple computer than buy it in neighboring Austria or Germany - and pray it won't need service while in Prague. Good luck. Do not recommend.
These guys have been consistently bad. High prices, lousy service, low level of knowledge. You are much better off to buy your Apple stuff outside of the country, because they won't service you regardless of if you bought it from them or not.
We purchased a crystal pendant in black/clear depicting the profile of a female. It is truly an unusual peice and as such attracts many compliments. The really amazing items were violine, saxaphones, artist pallet and many more, almost two thirds in actual size in the most beautiful colours. One day we will return and hopefully aquire such a peice.
TrÃ¨s beaux articles de grande qualitÃ©. Les emballages cadeaux sont trÃ¨s soignÃ©s.
I love the beer face cream. It smells delicious and makes my face feel so smooth.
I love your dead sea soaps with glycerine - so revitalising and refreshing and also moisturising for my very dry skin I will certainly order more ..
I got your handcream with Dead Sea salt, and find it absolutely fantastic- it smoothes my skin instantly, is non-greasy, and the smell is very subtle. Thank you!
le creme per il corpo, per il viso e per le mani sono veramente eccezionali, hanno tutte un buon profumoe un ottima consistenza
Fantastic!! such a beautiful quality shop that I will remember fondly from my time in Prague. My only caution to Australian travellers is that corn husk products are not allowed through customs into Australia. I found this out by having seven beautiful dolls confiscated at the airport. So definatly visit, and shop but keep the customs element in mind!
It was OK, but the prices seemed even higher than in Poland, where Macs are already expensive. I was hoping to get things cheaper here in Czech.
I loved their soaps ! Especially the one with dead sea salt and glycerine : I bought 3, I should have bought 10 !
God save us from the (apparently unstoppable) march of monoculture.
Good selection of gear. I got a second SD card at this shop (so many things to take photos of in Prague!).
Fully stocked and upscale establishment
Typical Czech behaviour, I must say! Being a Czech living in the UK and speaking to my husband (in English) inside of the shop, they treated me exactly the same way. So no worries! There is nothing more surreal than a Czech guy pretending to be a cool 'street' dude, most likely 'gangsta' too, freestyling all the time!Probably still living with parents..lol!
The beer shampoo/conditioner is the best product ever!!...Is there any way I can get it here in USA..??.
I really like the beer shampoo (seriously). It doesn't dry or irritate my scalp at all, and my hair feels great.
The soap made from beer is divine. Wish I had bought a whole case!
absolutely wonderful shop, the staff helpful wish we had one near me at home
Rick.... I know ur reading this ;) Goose
The shop is OK, but the people are extremely impolite
At last a shopping centre where you can shop PEACEFULLY...! Great relaxing atmosphere, I really liked the fact that you can actually find every shop without having to spend hours searching for it. People there weren't the friendliest, but there again, i haven't yet found a shop in Prague where the staff was customer-oriented. One good thing though, I met friendly people at Gant and at the Coloseum restaurant :)
My rating would be poor were it not for Jan Vanek in Service (Revolucni Istyle in Prague). Why? I find that most of the sales people aren't so well informed and clearly haven't been given a lot of training as they don't give consistent information at all stores and basic Mac info isn't always known. ***Petr who is the manager of the sales team at the Revolucni store, which is where they say to get service on their website,..says they don't have to take macs that were not purchase at istyle (in Czech). And, was really nasty and doesn't know what customer service really is. He feels that his team has nothing to do with Service and never mind that there is only one person running the whole service dept and the guy needs a day off once in a while. What it means is if you have any problems and service has a day off or week off..you are out of luck. That article about "if your Mac Crashes go to istyle" while in town..is over stating a bit. 1st of all, it usually takes a while to get serviced. If it's a software thing, you might get lucky and they will help on the spot. As, their new policy is to not recognize International warranties, you might be out of luck altogether. They refer you to a service that is pretty far away and not so easy to get to. If you are lucky, you will find someone in a good mood to help. Or, you can PAY and they'll maybe help:). NOT A USUAL MAC store. REALLY. We are working on correcting the situation, but not there, yet. More of us need to write Mac and Istyle and get them to train Petr and all Istyle people that don't understand the true meaning of service in a kind and helpful manner:) Jan Vanek is my super hero, as I got my Mac in before the policy..a lot of fights (not with him) and a lot of bad service, and yet he went above and beyond the call of duty. If you want good service..ask for Jan and let him know you heard he's fantastic and trustworthy. So, could be better..would be superb if Petr didn't work there. Good luck to you all. Lower your expectations. If you are only buying, then you are probably OK, you will just pay a heck of a lot more then you would anywhere else:) Happy California-Prague iMac girl Ariel Green
do not understand Berthas' comment. When I compare this shop with Apple Retail Store in Biltmore I do not see much difference except for some small things like cables etc. Moreover, go to Andel iStyle and you can try Mac + mix equipment + ... They should just work more on pricing policy as you can buy much cheaper from UK including delivery. For example new imac or macbook are less by 6000CZK each. So I tried there and bought from UK. I only buy things with 1000 CZK diference as delivery to CR is around 45 GBP for bigger parcels.
This shop has the most beautiful women I have ever seen serving in it. The dark haired one is serious model material. If you don't even like Tobacco check the shop for them. Worth a visit alone.
Feel I had to say something good about this shop. I spent most of my time in there throughout my holiday & loved everything about it. The rose sea salts are lovely.....
spent half my time in Prague in the Slovansky Dum centre. Some fantastic clothes. I love European style. God its much more expensive here than in America but there are just so many things you can't get in the US, except maybe in New York and San fran
