We stayed at the Vlkova Palace for three nights. Let me start by scolding those that ranked on this place because it's far from a palace. It is clear from the pictures this is not a castle, nor any sort of palace. What is clear from pictures is that you are staying in clean apartments that are well finished and suited perfectly for a stay in Prague.
My boyfriend and I received an apartment which had a two person bed (2 separate mattresses put together as found in most of Europe) and a single bed if needed. The beds were fine, nothing special, but we both slept comfortably.
The bathroom was small and definitely couldn't hold two people unless one was in the shower, but for one person it was just fine. The hot water in the shower does take a minute to kick on, so brush your teeth if need be while waiting.
The kitchen is fully equipped for your needs-- minus an oven. They supply many utensils and cooking tools. The owners also left a basket of goodies in your room, which included snacks, a bottle of water and coffee to use in the machine on the counter. They just ask that you clean up after yourself in the kitchen, which is understandable.
The area is safe and there are lots of places to eat around. The hotel is also one stop from the train station- using the 5 or 26. If you are a beer drinker take the 5 up five stops or the 26 up to Dhoula and on that street is a place called the Prague Beer Museum (not a museum but a Pub). 30 Czech craft beers on tap.
Finally, the staff was wonderful. They are not there for long on weekends, which was fine, but they leave you w a plethora of information. Exact train rides to the castle and much other useful information. They also leave their cell phone number in case of an emergency.
Overall, for those who book a $60 a night hotel you get your money's worth and more staying here.
