I love this hotel, the room was big and comfortable. The buffet was just ok, they don't have a lot of options. The staff was friendly and able to help and offer some tours. They speak fluent English. I will stay there again.

It's such a shame. This small hotel is in an ideal location. The staff and building were fine. Breakfast was ok - just. The room we had (108) was small but adequate, although having such a small door it required some hazard tape stuck to the top of the door frame as a warning to prevent banging heads. We weren't...

The hotel is in the nicer part of Prague, less crowds and a 2 minute walk from Charles Bridge. All sights within walking distance, 5minutes to the castle. The hotel is very reasonably prices. Rooms are spotless. Beds are comfortable. Will stay here again if in Prague.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
