Ok, first the good stuff..the room was quiet, on first floor of new renovated section, nice decor, bathroom is very modern and comfortable, all room amenities were adequate and standard, breakfast was quite good, but less than what we had just experienced in Prague at the Accor chain Hotel Century.
Bad stuff...the room is really cramped and small. The so-called king size bed is a double. Mattress is extremely soft and low to the ground, so you kinda roll out of bed in the morning onto your knees. The AC vent blows directly onto the bed, and when the AC fan is on automatic to control the temperature, the cold air hits you in the face, with no way to adjust the vent. If you reduce the fan strength, the room gets too warm. The TV and server were both out of service for parts of our 3 night stay. Staff in the hotel are unsmiling, try to be helpful, but really not ready for prime time, we had a very different and better experience in Prague at the Hotel Century the 3 nights prior to staying here. We had a rental car so had to park it at the hotel, their lot has space for 14 cars, and if you pay for a spot, they will not hold it for you if you take your car out and someone else fills the space, ridiculous.
Overall, would not recommend this hotel to anyone, unless cold soft beds are your thing.
