This is a lovely boutique hotel at the top of the hill in Prague's castle district. Our room (a Deluxe room) was very spacious, spotlessly clean, and had a magnificent view (the hotel faces broadly south, so the views are not of the city but of the Petrin Hill and the lush valley in between). The bathroom was very large, and there was an additional entrance hallway for storing suitcases and coats, with a second door for protection against hallway noise, although the hotel interior seemed very quiet the whole time we were there.
However, as the hotel is located near a number of churches, the bells in the morning can be a nuisance, particularly if sleeping with the windows open, and the lack of air conditioning means that during hot weather it is necessary to keep them open.
Staff were all very friendly, spoke near-perfect English, and were happy to offer advice. The hotel offers an airport pickup/dropoff service for 22 Euros /500 Crowns each way, which seemed a reasonable fare and was very convenient.
Breakfast was decent but not exciting, and was available until 10:30 for late risers. The only quibble we had with the hotel was very minor: toiletries were not replenished when they ran out.
Those with impaired mobility might find the steps within the hotel difficult, and the walk up the hill from the river to the hotel is reasonably steep and prolonged; it is, however, one of the most beautiful parts of town, despite the rather touristy cafes and restaurants on the main streets up the hill. For more authentic places to eat and drink on this side of the river, you will need to explore the little streets of the Mala Strana.
We stayed three nights in this hotel and would recommend it to anyone staying in Prague, provided that you don't mind the walk up the hill or the bells in the morning (which are anyway part of the atmosphere).
