“Great location, pretty outdated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights to discover Prague, we selected the hotel by the location which is awesome, the Old Jewish town is the best part to stay in Prague when you ask me, not too touristic, great restaurants in the area (see my other reviews), you can walk to everything and it's very cheap. Since we don't eat meat the breakfast was terrible (again) as expected and the entrance and reception are just plain ugly. Furthermore everything was functioning and pretty clean. We had a car parking which was on a real shabby place behind a strange door, parked on dirt and the key was with the receptionist, price 16 euro's a day, I wouldn't park there again. Conclusion: great location, price is correct for what you get!

The location is pretty good just a few minutes walk to the old square town. The main train station is not so far.
The facade of the building is really ugly and kind of hard to find the right entrance the only renovated part of the hotel is the elevator.
Our bathroom had a bad smell every day we arrived from the street, the hotel is really noisy and breakfast is ok.
If you are expecting a hostel then you will be fine, if you are going to stay at maximum 2 nights then you should be fine, but if you have other option dont think twice choose the other one.

This hotel offers nice rooms but a little bit outdated, first we got some rooms towards the backyard, even though we had ask for room towards the street when we orded the rooms,
i went down to the reception, and shows them the mail where they comfirm my desire, and
there was no problem, we got some other rooms towards the street.
But the rooms we got, was located on second floor right above a Squash center, who had opend
from 7 in the morning to 11 in the night, and belive me people plays squash from 7 o'clock in the morning, we could hear them runing around, so try to get rooms higher up..
The Wifi at the room we had was ok, a little bit slow, but it works.

The breakfast was actually really fine despite the hotel price, the selection was fine, and the breakfast room was also fine..

But again a nice low budget hotel, and if we can get room´s higher up next time, we will return to the hotel, but dont expect any luxury, it´s a room to sleep in.

Room Tip: Try to get a rooms higher up than second floor..

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2012

It was a good choice for the 2 nights I stayed there as I was going out at night so I used to get back at the Hotel around 3AM, so it has a good location (3 blocks from all touristic tracks). The service of the staff was good, all of them were helpful and speak very good english.

The value is quite far and good but the biggest issue of this Hotel is the Sleeping Quality as there is a night club on the other side of the street with a couple of bars so its really noisy at night.

The rooms were clean and I was satisfied with them, you have your own bathroom, clean towels (old but clean), TV, internet and a safe (you pay extra for it -1 euro per day). Also the breakfast is included which was good enough - cereals, milk, yogurt, ham, sausages, fruit, bread, coffee, the, juice, etc

The Hotel, is really a gym, with a Hostel attached. This is a backpacker kind of place. If you like cheap, noisy, old, and non-secure, this is the place for you. I would not recommend anyone stay here unless they are four frat boys.

I paid for a 3 person mixed dorm thinking it would be a regular hostel right? I got my own room in what seems to be just a regular hotel room. Yes, the room was small but I got my own fridge, bathroom, sink, shower, kitchen, and TV. I can't really complain here! The breakfast was so-so but again, for what I am paying, I really can't complain. I would totally recommend this "hostel" for anyone else.

Here are some pictures of my room!

Very bad hotel, creepy corridors with dim lights. The light on the corridor go off almost in 3 seconds. No fire or emergency stairs(at least there was no clean sign for this, and both end of the floor is filled with guest rooms so I could not find stairs). This is VERY DANGEROUS when the slow elevator is the only choice to get out of that building. The fitness room is not part of the hotel faclity. (however they put it on their website like it was theirs)

Smells rusty. Totally not worth your money. No air-conditioning. Noisy street outside. People yelling at late night. Not even a cup in the room. The inside blanket looks old yellowish.

Low quality breakfast. It was likely you won't get the room you reserved, instead they gave you a unpopular fourbeds room instead of your own reservation of a standard double room. Wierd room with two usable beds and two empty bed. You cannot check in before 14:00. If you arrive early, you have to wait.

Room Tip: Dont choose any room, just dont choose this one.
