Overall, an excellent hotel. All of the praise it has received for its service, sleekness, breakfast, wifi, location, etc. is well deserved...but let me focus on one specific amenity that I have not seen mentioned by others. Hotel Josef has rooms set aside for smokers. Now being a non-smoker myself, I am certainly not in favor of promoting smoking, but my wife is (unfortunately) a hard core smoker. When we travel, it is often difficult to find accomodations that suit us both equally. Either we find a hotel that allows smoking (and I suffer the effects of second hand smoke) or we find a non-smoking hotel (and my wife has to make repeated trips outside to satisfy her habit). Hotel Josef offered a room that allowed smoking, but to my surprise and never-ending gratitude, the room had an excellent air filtration system. I don't know how they do it, but there was no accumulation of smoke in the room and no lingering smell of stale smoke...even with the windows closed. My wife and I were both perfectly comfortable the entire time. Thank you Hotel Josef! We will be back again.

The Josef Prague is a nice hotel, well located and great for business. I stayed for 10 days on business in May. There were 9 in my party. Wireless is free and quite good speed. Some of our rooms were free upgrades. I had a superior glass bathroom room which was of adequate size, design and comfort. The front desk, bar staff, and especially the elderly porter were great, my only real complaint was housekeeping. I was sure that my maid hated me, every day a new booby trap for me to figure out, which became a standing joke. If I left clothes on the floor, they remained there. If I left half a glass of wine, it remained there, maybe she thought I would come back to it later! My shower head was aimed straight at me so when I turned the shower on, I and the rest of the bathroom got drenched, the Nespresso coffee machine was taken to pieces and left for me to figure out on waking, One of my party had some laundry done, it came back un-pressed, they did however sort that out. To be fair I didn’t complain about housekeeping, to be honest I really didn’t have time and was hardly ever in my room.

The hotel does offer nice touches, from a free Nespresso machine in my room (this is one of the reasons I booked the hotel, (sad but true), to free pastries and coffee in the lobby.
Breakfast was good and included in the price. The bar menu was OK but not exceptional, but there are so many fantastic restaurants within striking distance you don’t really need to eat at the hotel. Within a couple of minutes of the hotel, Divinis is a WONDERFUL restaurant, great food wine and ambience, or if you want a late night eat then La Casa Argentina is round the corner, great steak, a lively and smoky atmosphere with Pirana’s in tanks and apparently a money, which I thought I heard but thought it was taped rainforest noise and not live critters! A 10 mins drive from the hotel is Sasazu a fabulous fusion restaurant with club next door. The list really is endless, you cant loose really, oh and don’t forget Bakeshop, within a stones throw, a wonderful bakery, and coffee house.

Overall this hotel is great value for money, it is very central and nicely designed. I would stay here again for business, however if I was travelling for pleasure I would be tempted stay somewhere with more Prague charm.

Thank you Josef for making my trip painless!

Room Tip: I stayed in room 305, a smoking room with views to the front of the hotel, the room was a good size and very little noise even though it was street side.

Dear Valued Guest,

thank you for taking time to write such a full review following your stay in Hotel Josef! I am happy to hear you and your friends enjoyed your vacation. Thank you for mentioning breakfast, the location and all the little touches.

Please let me sincerely apologize for the laid-up coffee machine. Our housekeeping team is very respectful to our guests' personal possessions, therefore your clothes and wine were left at the same place.

Thank you for giving fellow travelers a tip on eating out in Prague, this review would definitely be helpful for our future guests.

We are looking forward to seeing you again,

Kind regards,

Uliana Ardeeva

this hotel was fantastic, really has no complaints, only some nice surprises. The breakfast was great, service at front desk excellent, couldn't have been more helpful and I loved the fact they have movies/dvds you can borrow for free (where most hotels of this size would charge for this). Free to use MACs and a printer in a seperate room. Would definitely not stay anywhere else in Prague
