“Convenience, design, overall good value”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

The positive:
Kind, efficient staff with a very good command of English
Very good location : 20 min from the airport by taxi. (Good service of private limos=650 CRZ to the airport)
Walking distance to many Prague monuments
Very close to many bars, restaurants & nightlife yet far enough to avoid the crowd and the noise. 5 min walk to a subway station.
Good breakfast buffet, excellent made to order eggs on the week end!
Nice breakfast area especially when the weather is good
Free Wifi across the hotel
Expresso machine in the room
Free bottles of water replaced daily
Clean, new amenities. Room is well lit, confortable, quiet.
Ipads for customer use in the lobby
Overall good value for the money

The (somehow) negative :
Undergound meeting rooms (some)
Overall design is not that efficient : bar immediately behind the doors and entirely visible from the street, lobby lacks privacy, people confused between the 2 remote aisles (pink and orange!).
Room design a bit cold/impersonal. You could be in any city...

The first and foremost comment is about the location: this hotel is perfectly situated in the old town near the Josevof jewish quarter and the old town square, yet away from commercial busy streets. Tourist hotspots can be reached on foot. From the airport it's a 20-30 min's drive by cab, which will cost about 600-800ck. Else, public transport can be used for about 300-400ck.

Second comment is about the stylish design of the hotel. The hotel has a clean, stylish design, but it's not cold or distant. In fact, it has kept a warmth that sometimes gets lost on a boutique design. Very well executed. I'd rate it a very good small business style hotel.

Third comment is the excellent service offered by the staff. Reception is responsive, efficient and goes the extra stretch to make you feel welcome. Room service is very good. Bar staff is attentive.

The front of the hotel is open, lots of glass and very light. Small bar with lounge area. In the middle is a stairs leading to a conference room. Right besides the reception is a hallway leading to one of the two buildings the hotel consists of. It passes the courtyard and breakfast restaurant. The hotel buildings are called Orange and Pink. Pink is at the street side, Orange at the courtyard side.

Rooms are efficiently designed and offer minibar, espresso machine, safe, flatscreen TV, DVD player and airco. Doors open with chipcard. Bathroom has all things you'd expect, incl. vanity kit, soaps, hair dryer. Window can be opened. Sunscreen with electric control. TV has English, German and local channels. It also offers HBO. Wi-fi is free and works perfectly. Rooms are clean and beds are good.

Breakfast is a good buffet style, incl. fruit, yogurt, buns and bread, egg and sausage, coffee and juice and a selection of meets and cheeses. Staff is attentive. The restaurant area does not serve dinner. Understandable with so many restaurants in the old town. However, room service does offer a small menu. Tasty, well done and efficiently served.

In short: this is a well designed hotel with good rooms and in a perfect location. The great staff offers excellent service. I would stay here again and I would recommend it.

Room Tip: For a quiet room, ask for the Orange building with a room at the courtyard side. Staff will happily...

I have stayed twice at The Joseph and have been pleased both times.

The Joseph is a super trendy hotel with great service located smack downtown. The rooms are extremely sleek and very spacious. Great beds and very cool, large bathrooms.

The Joseph also has a small courtyard where you can sit and enjoy coffee or a drink.

Great experience.

My sister and I stayed from February 24-28th, 2012 and it was undoubtely the best hotel of our entire trip. Besides the excelent service in general (excelent location, cleanness, comfort, breakfast and so on), the warming assistance and treatment provided from all the concierges were fantastic. All the suggestions and hints they gave us were just pretty good. I intend to visit Prague again and surely shall stay in Josef again. And I have already started recomemending the hotel to friends who are planning to visit Prague. Ney Telles, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
