We went here because of the great reviews here on TripAdvisor, and because of the very good price. We only paid €290 for 7 nights (booked through their own website).
First of all, as others have mentioned, the hotel is not in the center of Prague. This is not a problem at all, since there's a tram station very near the hotel, and it only takes a couple of minutes to reach the center.
The hotel is nicely decorated and feels very well maintained. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. They also spoke very good English.
Our room on the third floor was large, clean and comfortable. We had two large separate beds which could be easily combined into one. The air conditioning worked great.
The rooms are equipped with free internet access through a cable. The cable provided is too short to cover the entire room, so you may want to bring your own. There's also free WiFi in the lobby.
The breakfast was very good. Lot's of different food to choose from and great quality overall.
We can also highly recommend getting a massage at the hotel. Very good prices and highly skilled masseuses. They do however struggle a lot with the English language, so you may want to go to the reception with them to get some interpretation.
There's a supermarket just across the street with great prices on everything.
Just a couple of small negative things:
The area surrounding the hotel is not very nice. Quite deteriorated and dirty with graffiti etc. We never felt unsafe while walking there however, not even at nights.
The tram passes by just outside the hotel quite frequently, and could be a problem at nights if you have a room facing the street (like we had). We heard it from our room, but it did not affect our sleep quality at all.
The shower in our room wasn't very good. First of all, there was no shower curtain, so you always had a fair amount of water on the floor after each shower. The water pressure was also quite poor, and the water temperature kept changing sporadically.
Other than that, we can highly recommend this hotel. You are unlikely to find a hotel with better value for your money in Prague.
