Just returned from a five day holidays in Prague, where I stayed at Hotel Carlton, a 4 Star Hotel (in fact no more than 3), located in Zizkov are, working class neighbour of Greater Prague, Prague 3.
This hotel although not located in central Prague is still only more or less 4 tram stops from central Prague (line 9 tram). The only catch with this is that if you plan to enjoy the night-life of Prague, you will have to deal with the cowboys of the private taxis, when you decide to go back to the hotel. Only recommend AAA cabs.
The hotel service in general was O.K. All receptionist spoke English, and particularly a receptionist called Lenka was very helpful, and always with a smile on her face. She recommend me several clubs as I and my friend wanted to go clubbing.
With regard to the room in itself, I only have two complaints: one is that the shower does not have curtains (so it becomes a mess), and that during the last two days, our room was not cleaned, and somehow the bed sheets disappeared during the last two days of our stay.
The breakfast was included in booking price it is normal, nothing to complain about it. In the main high street next to the hotel there is a good Czech restaurant, I strongly recommend it : Lavicka.
In conclusion, an average hotel, maybe a bit far off the centre in a not so nice area (but still safe), with a particular good and helpful female receptionist.
