I was very surprised by how close this hotel was to the Astronomical Clock and Old Town Square (basically around the corner). Charles Bridge is just a short walk from the hotel and there is a metro station nearby (about a 3 minute walk). We had a very nice size room and bathroom and the staff, for the most part, were nice. The room and bathroom were very clean. The breakfast room was very small and served the normal type of food that you have in most Euro hotels (ham, cheese, cereal). I don't plan on going back to Prague but if I ever did, I probably would stay here again.
1. Room had a fan
2. Room had a mini-fridge
3. Room had a DVD player (lobby had free movies you can borrow) though we didn't use it
4. Room was pretty quiet for the most part. I could hear the people across from us leaving their room some mornings but it wasn't really bothersome.
5. Free wi-fi though signal is kinda low at times.
Here are the Negatives:
1. No stairs so it was very tiring to have to carry up and down 3 heavy luggages. Thank goodness we only had to go up 1 floor
2. Flat pillows but I think that's a European thing because I also experienced it in Germany as well)
3. There is a safe in the room but you have to put down a deposit (I forget how much). Not sure why I would need to put a deposit to store MY stuff? We ended up foregoing it and locking our suitcases every time we left the room.
4. The satellite tv did not work our first night there (need satellite for the English channels). We asked the receptionist and she kinda blew it off saying there is an instruction sheet in the hotel binder they put in each room. We tried to fiddle with the tv setting and the tv still had only sound but no pictures. When we called down to her again, she said she will come take a look when we left to go to dinner. She did not. The next day we asked the new lady at the check-in counter and she immediately took care of the situation. This receptionist (the older of the 3 we encountered during our stay) was the most helpful. Note: the English speaking channels aren't that great either.
5. The bathtub had no shower curtain or glass partition so water would splash all over the floor. The bathtub is high as well so if you're not careful when stepping out of the tub, you could slip. That is an accident and lawsuit waiting to happen. What is ironic is that they have a sign asking if you want to re-use towels or have new ones each day for the sake of the environment. If you have to use the towels to mop off the floor each day makes that sigh completely pointless.
