“A city centre gem of an hotel!”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Both my daughter and I independently chose this hotel as it is so different from a modern hotel block. Originally owned by Argentinians but now Czech citizens it has a Spanish flavour in its decor and food. We had requested a twin bedroom but were given, we have no idea why but never queried it of course, a two bedroomed suite. Both rooms had a double and single bed, one had a toilet ensuite and there was a shared bathroom with a large vestibule so we had plenty of space. The rooms were large, one with huge windows so very bright, the other overlooking the inner courtyard where, in good weather, one could eat outside.

Breakfast was varied and plentiful and the restaurant stayed open all day to non residents - every time we returned to the hotel the restaurant was full and on the two nights we dined there, there was always a queue of would be diners waiting for a table.

All the staff were friendly and welcoming and very helpful. Next to the hotel is a tourist information office where Martin and another young man [fair haired, tall and very handsome!!]were very helpful with their advice on where to go and what to see.

The hotel is just a couple of minutes away from Republic Square where the Municpal Hall is and where concerts and ballets are staged. The Powder Tower is right there too plus a little cluster of market stalls and two shopping malls. From there you can walk to Wenceslas Square which is actually oblong or to the Astronomical Clock or the Sat market or, much further if you feel like it. It's easier to walk than take a taxi as the streets are often one way which means the taxi has to take a long route to your destination so is rather expensive. There is, however, a taxi rank in the same street as the hotel, yellow cabs marked AAA which are the best company, have standard rates so you know you are not being overcharged or scammed as others might do.

Back to the hotel, decorated in the public areas in bright Spanish colours with Spanish pottery and tiles strongly evident, plants and flowers everywhere, very bright and cheerful. There was, however, no lounge and if you wanted a drink in the evening you would have to go downstairs to the cellar where it was advertised there was jazz playing. We didn't do this so I cannot comment on it. We were out late on all three nights so went straight to our rooms exhausted!

Thank goodness our beds were comfortable and the rooms were heated but you could open the windows if you so desired. The rooms were cleaned daily and were spotless. There is a lift to all floors.

I would highly recommend this hotel for its good rooms, friendly atmosphere, excellent food and the fact that it is so different. I would certainly return there in the future.

Room Tip: I liked my room facing the back as it had big windows which opened, the view was nothing to talk abo...

This quirky hotel is close to the centre of town but in a quiet side street. An excellent location. Our room was comfortable with table and chairs and a leather sofa. There were windows on two walls so it felt light and spacious. Lots of Dali prints. A shower rather than a bath. Wifi was free within the hotel but we had to go into the corridor to get a signal.

The hotel was built around a central courtyard. There was a restaurant on the ground floor, which had a Spanish theme. Gaudi type tiles on the floor. A free drink each was offered each night. Food was good and excellent value. There was also a travel information office in the hotel. The guy there was incredibly helpful and suggested a trip out to Vysehrad. He provided us with maps and planned a route to suit us using metro.

Several reviews mention taxi rides to the airport. The journey via bus and metro is quick and easy costing about £2 each way. Tickets for the 100 bus can be bought from the kiosk opposite the arrival gate. You'll get enough change for the metro later. Ask for the yellow metro route and you'll get instructions for the right bus stop. It is just outside. This takes you to Zlicin. Then take the metro to Namesesti Republiky. The hotel is just around the corner and takes less than 5 minutes to walk.

All in all a very comfortable hotel. Right location, atmosphere and price!!

We stayed at this hotel for three days over the valentines day period. It was very friendly, the food was excellent and the room was very large and spacious and cleaned every day. its location was a ten minute walk from the centre of Prague old town square and we felt safe all the time, even in the early hours. The price was very good for what we received and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in Prague.

A very inviting place to stay with a charming inner courtyard. Good breafast with a lot of options, conveniently located near everything but on a quiet street. No ikea furniture here--the large rooms have older furniture and decor--very clean yet charming.

We went for a winter city break and the location was key to us booking here. It was perfect location wise with only a couple of minutes walk to the main areas and lots of shops and restaurants. The room was huge and comfortable but quite old fashioned, but smoking is allowed indoors here and our room did smell of smoke, but this was something we got used to. Surprisingly with only a tiny heater I expected it to be cold, but somehow the room felt quite warm most of the time.

The reception staff were very welcoming and gave us a lovely city map with a proposed walking route on it, which we did do and saw some lovely parts of the city we may have missed. We didn't get to go to the castle, but most of the other key sights. They also arranged pick up from the airport and back for us at a reasonable cost.

The city itself is quite compact and the food and shops are wonderful, we went when the Christmas markets were on which added to the atmosphere - try the pasty things cooking on rollers, very yummy and warming!

Breakfast was the only meal we ate at the hotel and its a serve yourself affair. The coffee is good and tea selection not bad - you can get more for your room at reception too, which was nice. I enjoyed the breakfast as they had most cooked and continental selection on offer.

I would stay here again, but consider this a slightly better than budget hotel, if you want luxury you need to look elsewhere.
