We stayed for 3 nights in May 2012.
We had an executive suite (room 505). It was a huge suite over 2 floors with the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Downstairs are the toilet, an open plan dining room, kitchenette, and very large lounge. It is a shame that, due to planning restrictions, the windows to the front facing the Charles Bridge and castle are Velux type in the vaulted ceilings so you have to hang your head out to get a really good view, and there is no window in the bathroom but there is a nice view of the old town from the rear of the room.
The hotel arranged to collect us for the 25 minute trip to and from the airport in a Mercedes, which was great and it worked out cheaper than the black cab I took for the 25 minute journey home when I arrived back in Birmingham. The meet and greet at the hotel is five star and we were quickly whisked to our room where a chilled bottle of Bohemia Sekt (fizzy Czech wine) awaited us.
The hotel is perfectly positioned for the attractions, being moments from the Charles Bridge and a short walk to the old town square and Wenceslas Square. It is about 30 minutes walk up to the castle on the other side of the bridge.
As to food, there are around 1300 restaurants in Prague, usually a lot cheaper than the UK. The Amade Restaurant, which is part of this hotel, is No 1 on Trip adviser. The Bellevue opposite the hotel is No 2 and the Phenix restaurant/café next door is No 25 on Trip Advisor, so there are plenty of the good eating establishments within a minute’s walk. I thought the Phenix and the Amade were very good. However, the Bellevue stood out it for me as a truly top notch restaurant but it is the most expensive with a 3 course meal for 2 at around £120 with wine. We had the breakfast buffet at the Amade included in our package, which was very good with plenty of choice. If you fancy a drink at a little pub which is quiet and not too touristy then I would recommend turning left out of the hotel until you come to Hemmingway’s on the left hand side.
There was very little to grumble about: the bed was comfy and the hotel and room were kept very clean and all of the staff were very friendly. We had a few issues with the some of the lights and power sockets only working intermittently, which the hotel electrician had not solved on our last night but it was not a huge problem.
Overall, I thought the hotel was excellent value for money.
