We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Prague in early September. We were very happy with the hotel, the price and the location.
The staff was very friendly always there with a hello when we walked through the lobby. Most seemed to speak English well which was helpful because we don’t speak any Czech. The staff was very helpful with directions about how to get around town.
The lobby and breakfast/bar area were very modern. Wireless internet was free in the rooms after calling down to the reception for a password. It would only allow one computer to operate in the room though, which was frustrating because my husband and I travel with our own laptops. The breakfast was decent – sausages, breads and pastries, cereal, yogurt and a meat and cheese tray.
I will say that the rooms don’t look exactly like the picture. While they are very clean and the bathrooms look to be remodeled, the beds and furniture are not as nice looking as the hotel’s web-site advertises. To be honest the bed was probably one of the most uncomfortable I have slept on, but when it comes to hotels, price and cleanliness are a bigger priority for me unless I’m staying an extended period.
We found the location to be great. We were looking for a good deal even though it meant staying outside of downtown. A tram stop is just a 3 min walk down the street. It is just a few minutes ride to the metro station and beginning of Mala Strana. The area looks a bit secluded, but we never felt unsafe coming back at night. There were always many people getting off at the same stop.
There are no restaurants in the immediate area, but just a tram stop or two away there were a few places and a Bohemia Bagel. We did not try any of them though, we ate in city center.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel. We paid about 79 euro a night and even with 2 – 3 day transportation tickets we still paid less than a similar level of hotel closer into the city. A friendly staff, clean rooms and easy transportation into the city made it a great value for the money.
