The location is the main bad thing about this hotel...ok, the bus stop is just across the road, but you still have to walk a few minutes when you come off a bus to reach the metro station(which is, by the way, almost the last red metro line station).
The food was also bad, once or twice in a week inedible.
The rooms are mostly old and shabby, but there is a section which has been newly refurbished, and the rooms in that section are nicer and the furniture is (obviously) newer.
The staff are ok.
All in all, there are better hotels on a much better location for a much better price in Prague than this one. No need to stay here.

1.) Wifi doesn't work in the entire hotel room, only in one location.
2.) No plugs where there is wifi.
3.) Beds made of plywood. Very uncomfortable, looks more like a couch than a bed.
4.) Bugs in the room
5.) During breakfast, a majority of the food was gone and there was nothing to drink. When I asked for something to drink she told me to wait but no one ever came and filled up the container.
5.) There is no housekeeping unless you request it
6.) Must pay for handsoap, body wash and conditioner.
7.) Must walk 15 minutes up a hill to get to the metro.
8.) Not very close to the city center.

The hotel is quite nice, good communication , ca 3 min to Metro. Neverthelles breakfasts were awful. "Ham", "Sausages" and ..."cheese" which was made from paper of something else... You should remember to go for breakfast earlier about 7-8 am (breakfasts last 7:00-9:30) because later there is no milk, no juice, "sausages" are cold and the is no bread.
Staff is quite friendly.
I recommend this hotel if you do nt have a lot of money, you do not want to sit in the otel for all day long :) but you just want to sleep there. Pragha is beautiful place, don't waste your time and come to Pragha :)

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with the view on the city (street). It's amazing 'cause hotel is situated on t...

Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nights as it was close to the 02 arena. The room is very basic which is what you would expect for the price. There were no curtains at the window just a net so was light in the room at 5am. Only 1 chanel worked on the tv and there are no drink making facilities in the room just a fridge.

We had hardly any loo roll and had to go and ask for some as the house keeper didnt put any more in or clean towels. On the last night there, we had a group of what can only be described as kids in the room next door the walls are that thin that you can hear every sound and they were shouting and screaming and running up and down the stairs as their friends were in the room above.

This place is in an ideal place to commute it is 2 bus stops from the prosek metro station. The web site says a short walk but is a steep hill going back and is an easy 15 min walk so if you get the bus from mcdonalds next to metro its 2 bus stops down.

The staff are all friendly here and most can speak english the food is really nice and home cooked. The breakfast is usual hot dogs, ham , cereal etc but is good for the money.

With a bit of money spent on this place it could be much better but it looks closer to a hostel than a hotel.

Stayed here with 8 other lads at the end of November 2012 as we were going to see SHM at the O2.

We paid £10 a night each which was incredible value, staff were extremely helpful and also got free wifi in the entire hotel not just the lobby.

Isn't really a typical lads/stag do hotel, more locals and older people but we got on fine.

Cost about £6 to get in to town in a taxi and about 10 minute walk to the O2.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone who is after a short trip, cheap and very cheerful.

Three stars for this hotel are way too much. Hotels like this were "good" at least fifteen years ago! What's more, do not ever try breakfast - bread might have been three, maybe four days old and other things doesn't worth to talk about.

If we will be looking for accomodation in Prague, we will definitely avoid this hotel.
