Having travelled to Prague many times, I knew of the Metamorphis and its good reputation (and location) but had never stopped there until now.
Booking via their web-site, and for a period just before main season began, we got a fantastic deal, including a free pick-up from the airport.
The hotel is in the ungelt courtyard just behind Tyn Church, and about a minutes walk off the Old Town Square.
Each room is spacious, and individually decorated. My room had a fantastic view across Ungelt to the Church. My companions room faced in the opposite direction, with a view of the equally historic CHurch of St Jakob.
Staff on the reception desk were always friendly and helpful with any advice that was asked for.
I found the cleaning of the rooms to be very efficient, too.
Breakfast was served in the adjoining Italian Vabene restauant - an excellent buffet style arrangement with plenty of bacon, eggs, sausage, toast, fruit, cereals, yoghurt and pastries - all you can eat! One word of caution - the restaurant is in the cellar and is reached by a quite narrow spiral staircase with 30 steps which older travellers, or people with some physical disabilities may find awkward.
Rooms on the `church` side of the hotel also face the Chapeau Rouge night-club - However, it was reported to me that the windows kept out any noise from that. This may be more of a problem in Summer, when travellers may want to keep the windows open. However, the rooms do have air conditioning - though I had no need of it during my visit.
Rooms facing Ungelt may have to contend with the jazz and blues coming from the club across the courtyard - though it tends to finish before midnight, so may only bother those not out sampling Prague's nightlife!
My only very minor complaint would be that (in our rooms at least) there was no socket for an electric shaver in the bathroom.
As for the reviewer complaining about paying 750 kc (about £25) for a car to the airport - if he can find a taxi that does it for less than this, he's doing very well. We were charged 250kc to go about a mile across town.
In contrast, the hotel has a very sylish and comfortable car that made the journey a pleasure.
