Our first impressions were excellent! The hotel looks nice from the outside and the small reception area was modern and clean. Without being asked, the male receptionist gave us a brief introduction to Prague and the surrounding area, marking areas of interest and noting tram numbers which would take us to different areas of the city.
The first room we were allocated overlooked the road and we asked to be moved due to the traffic noise. This was not a problem and we were given another quieter room, looking out to the back of the hotel.
The room itself was clean and comfortable, with nice touches like a pillow and duvet ‘menu’. Our room had a small lounge with two chairs and a desk in addition to the bedroom. This was great and gave some additional space, as the bed area was not particularly spacious.
Breakfast included a reasonable selection of cereals, bread and rolls and also some cooked foods. It is possible to sit out in the garden if weather permits.
Room service is available from an Italian restaurant but we did not use this, as there were too many great restaurants to try in the city.
The hotel is a brisk 15 – 20 minute walk away from the more typical tourist area but there many trams running nearby that would take you into the centre. We particularly enjoyed the short walk from the hotel to the funicular railway station which took us up to Petrin Tower which has great views of Prague. We walked back down via some lovely streets and parkland to reach the Prague Castle complex.
The hotel offers a taxi transfer service which we took advantage of, emailing before our holiday. We paid EUR 39 for our return journey and could not fault the service. Upon arrival at Prague Airport, the driver was waiting in the arrivals hall with a board displaying our name. Drivers on both journeys were pleasant and we were transported in a large VW vehicle both ways.
Overall, a pleasant stay and we would happily recommend this hotel.
