“Visiting Prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Accommodation is an important part of the trip and this hotel is excellent. It's not only the location and rooms, but the personal and feeling - they made us feel comfortable and taken care of.

Rooms are clean and breakfast excellent and service outstanding.

We stumbled on this hotel on the internet and have no regrets whatsoever. It is very quaint. The location is perfect and centrally located within walking distance of all all the main sights. The room (suite A, on the top floor) was immaculate. The staff are welcoming and friendly and our thanks go to Martina for all her assistance including arranging taxi pick-up and drop-off at the airport which is 650Kr. each way. The room rates are slightly higher than some of the others available....but worth every penny !
It is located in a busy part of the old town and can be lively during the day and into the night. With the room windows closed, there isn't any problem with getting a good nights sleep.
If ever in Prague we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Take some ear plugs if you're a very light sleeper

We stayed at this hotel for one wonderful week. We had decided to upgrade to the Family suite which was a excellent choice as it gave my young one year old the space to run. The room was very beautiful and was classically appointed. The ceiling in the living room had beautiful decorative wooden beams. And the bed was comfortable. The view was excellent and the location of the hotel is unbeatable. Two blocks from the Vltava and the Charles Bridge and roughly 5 blocks from the Old Town Square. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. The weekend is buffet style but the weekdays are made to order. The front desk was super courteous and helpful. They knew that we had a small boy and they brought in a portable crib and padded it nicely. My only complaint which is entirely out of their hands is quite simply, its best asset is also the greatest liability, meaning its location. Being in the center of it all has its draw backs because when bars close all the drunkards wander slowly down the street at various hours. Some sing others yell. But when you are trying to sleep and in turn keep your young one sleeping this may be a bit of a issue. Having single pane windows is primarily the problem. Also the door separating our room from the next is only a door so when neighbors stumble in, and I do mean stumble, it can be a bit annoying. Again both the issues are out of their hands. However, overall an amazing stay at an amazing hotel.

We found this little gem on the internet and would go back tomorrow. Martina and Petra were simply fantastic. Great breakfast and beautiful rooms. The location is right in the middle of the old town, only drawback is that it's near a nightclub but don't let that put you off. Discounts offered for paying in local currency which was nice. We arrived at 6am and they offered us a complimentary breakfast before the kitchen had even opened. Don't think twice, just book it. Beautiful spacious rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the nightclub

We stayed here for the last night of our vacation before flying home in May 2012. The staff were very professional and helpful. They arranged our taxi to the airport, 650czk, and the breakfast was very tasty. Our room, right beside the breakfast room on the second floor was large and had a lot of interesting detail. This hotel is right in the center of things near Old Town square. Very good value for money.
