We went to Prague for a short city break and it was beautiful. Hotel josef was very close to the old town square and all other attractions were walking distance. The room was contemporary and comfortable. Unfortunately we didn't have a bath but when we asked at reception they were very helpful and said we could ask again the next day as there should be a room free. In the end we didn't bother because our room was fine! We cannot comment on the breakfast as we didn't eat it. When we went it was freezing but there were complimentary hot chocolates in the foyer after a long day sightseeing. If we went back to Prague I would probably stay in hotel josef again.

Call me old fashioned, but I like to carry out my ablutions in a bit of privacy. The hotel describes itself as 'sexy' in some of the blurb so it might be okay if you are young and beautiful. However if you're not so happy for your partner to see you flossing your teeth and tweezing the odd facial hair, this might not be the hotel for you. There's also an awfully big gap between the thankfully-opaque toilet doors.

If that hasn't put you off then I'll tell you the good bits: The staff were great, the breakfast was one of the best spreads I've had in any hotel (the fresh orange juice, though, had never seen an orange in its life, but the waitress spotted this, apologised, and offered to freshly squeeze us some oranges every morning after) and the location was spot on for walking around the city.

The room was bright and clean but I was disappointed that the used water glasses were left beside our bed and no clean ones received over the 4 nights that we were there. The plastic chair was a bit more cheap looking than trendy. However, the bed was very comfy.

All-in-all, a fine hotel if you're okay with the toilet arrangements.

This hotel was amazing! Loved the decor, the staff, and the central location! We chose a standard room, as we prefer a more private bathing area. The rooms on the lower floor facing the street seem to have the best view. I wasn't sure about the location when booking this hotel, but we were so pleased to find that it is located in the heart of everything! Great, great hotel!!!

Hotel Josef Prague is not only a modern designer hotel but also one with good service.
This is my second stay.  Great breakfast until 11 am. Very comfortable beds. Fantastic Aveda bath products. Wonderful water pressure. Well lit room. Fresh fruits and ice tea in the reception. Dare I ask for more?
And excellent location. Walking distance to the Old Clock tower & square, the Municipal Hall and anywhere else worth walking to!
After all Prague is a city to be seen on foot.
I organized Ballet tickets via email to be purchased by the hotel and it was ready and waiting upon check in. Staff was always smiling and ready to assist. 
I champion this hotel to anyone who visits this beautiful Baroque city!
Tip: get the hotel to pick you up from the airport. It's worth the money rather than to deal with local taxis. Arrive in STYLE.
At this point I would like to mention the cons of Tripadvisor. As much as I'm a fan, I find it extremely irritating that some people consider themselves reviewers when they hardly step out of Smalltown Ville. In all fairness, to be a competent reviewer, one must have enough experience and objectivity to translate an experience in all honesty. Being able to equate all factors and sum it up into a review based on KNOWLEDGE,  is key. 
Remember, you are affecting someone's business, someone's lively hood and someone's future.
So the next time you're thinking about writing a bad review, consider both sides.
After all, we're not here to read about your ego!!!

The best location!! As well as an excellent staff...very friendly and helpful. We found a city tour with their help which was perfect...and excellent restaurant choices as well! Cavier for $7.50 per serving!! amazing in their restaurant choice for us!! We were able to walk all around the Old Town...the bar and breakfast were perfect. We will stay if we go back and suggest it to others!!

Room Tip: We asked for a non smoking room on a high floor. We were given a room on a non smoking floor and a room on the 6th floor.
