“Great location weather alone or with partners or friends.”
Reviewed 5 June 2011

To make this easier, I have split my review into sections.

Hotel, facilities and restaurant and location:
Initially I stayed at this hotel alone for 1 night and was joined by my boyfriend for the following 2 nights. I was a little apprehensive about being there alone before I arrived, however the staff put me at ease straight away. rooms are compact but stunning with everything you could possibly need (except a kettle) lol. The staff are lovely and seem to be from all around the world with many experiences! The breakfasts are great with a good selection, cereals, toasts rolls, eggs, meats and cheeses, salads and fruit etc.... something for everyone and great for a day exploring! On the two occasions I ate in the bellushi's restaurant I found the food to be very tasty and offering good portion sizes and therefore excellent value for money. This hotel was ideally placed as you can walk to pretty much all the main tourist hotspots. They provide a clear and easy to understand tourist map on arrival to the hotel - (this offers many discounts all around the city), I used this when I walked for around 6 hours on one of the days, just exploring the city on my own. The hotel is just around the corner from the 'Dancing Building bridge' with tram links very near by, although I didn't feel these were needed. Wenceslas square was just a quick walk away.

Transport to and from the airport:
If you stay at this hotel I highly recommend the bohemian shuttle service that they offer from the airport to the hotel. This offers good value and guaranteed safe transport.

Surrounding area and must see attractions:
There is something to do all day every day in and around prague, we only managed to explore a small part of this beautiful city. I was told by my taxi driver that there is a face/head or statue on or in every old building in prague - this is tradition. Knowing this really made me look at the buildings even more carefully. There are so many to see!
Old town: If you visit the old town, you will see many old churches and buildings along with the famous clock - this is stunning but very busy when it starts its show. The show starts on the hour every hour and so you should get there early if you want a good view. - There are many places to eat with a full view here too. Just around the corner from the clock there is a stunning monument in the centre of the square. Walking past the statue on the right you will find many horse and carriage's waiting to be hired for tours around the city, along with classic cars and free walking tours. Moving further on you will find what I liked to call the 'MAYFAIR OF PRAGUE' - here you will find many exclusive shops; Cartier; Rolex; Dior and Mont Blanc to name but a few.

The Charles Bridge: This in itself is an amazing sight. Along both sides you will see many sculptures depicting various historical events, all of which are stunning. There is one about half way along on the right with some very shiny bronze patches.... it is said to be good luck to rub this! There are many stalls selling various arts and craft along the bridge including charachatures and more detailed portraits if this interests you. If you do visit the Charles Bridge, be sure to stop and enjoy the old boys of 'The Bridge Band' they are fantastic (look them up on you tube). Just across the other side of the bridge there are many other places to visit, with many many restaurants.

The John Lennon Wall: This is a fantastic site, a wall that is constantly changing. This wall is covered in graffiti. inspired by John Lennon, (Images, and Beatles song lyrics). This was all started by young Czechs in the 1980's and still today depicts the ideals of the young Czechs of today!

Restaurants: If you are there with a partner, there are many nice restaurants that are open all hours if you would like to enjoy a romantic meal as we did. There is a great value restaurant, just opposite the theatre.(This is the building with the gold roof). But I can highly recommend the italian restaurant where we celebrated our 2 year anniversary, if you want to experience high class cuisine!

We went to the: Gabriele Ristorante Address: Husova 5, Old Town, Prague 1. (http://www.gabriele.cz/en/)

I have been to many fine dining restaurants, but have never had a chef of such quality, come to greet me at the table to welcome me to his restaurant. - He did this with every person that was there that evening. The food here was really outstanding - they were also very helpful to myself, who has a dairy intolerance. The waiters were very enthusiastic and very helpful. Gabrielle himself even came to have photos with us before we left!!!

There are so many amazing places that we visited, far too many to mention them all. Above I have highlighted just a small selection!

If you were unsure about staying at this hotel, all I can say is don't be. Book it and enjoy an amazing experience! Happy holidaying in Prague!

Stayed at the Mosaic House for three nights in May 2011.
We had never been to Prague, so we were not really sure about the location, but it turned out to be excellent, within walking distance of the main attractions. For those destinations further away, like the castle, you can take the tram from the nearby stop (Karlov Namesti). There are 24h tickets which allow you to use any bus or tram during that time period.
Staff were very friendly and the mix of a hostel and a 4 star hotel results in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We had dinner at the restaurant in the lobby, and the food was very nice (american style).
Rooms are very clean and quiet. We stayed on the 5th floor in a room with a terrace. Everything was just like in the pictures. Wifi was not particularly fast, but our room was the last on the corridor so maybe signal was weak due to the distance. Still, it was enough to surf the net and check the email.
On the last day we were allowed to leave our luggage at the hotel after check out at no extra cost, we also booked a transfer to the airport at reception, which was cheaper than a taxi and still had the bonus of a very friendly driver, with whom we chatted all the way to the airport.
Overall, we were extremely pleased and if we return to Prague the Mosaic House will be number one choice.

The room was perfect and cozy. The internet was a little iffy at times, but overall okay. The air circulators worked well once we figured out how they worked. Other than the ambiance, the restaurant, and bar located downstairs, they had a comfortable lounge. They also had amble lockers, which is always a plus.

Interestingly, they are a very green hotel with a near zero carbon footprint. They have a mix of larget hostel type rooms and some hotel type rooms. Great place for a younger crowd, or the young at heart!

Large size hotel slightly out of the core tourist area but close to metro station (karlovo namesti) and the #22 tram, which go to mall stare and Prague castle. Room is modern and clean. Had hard time with wifi Internet on last two day of stay. Tend to attract younger clienteles. Large sports bar in hotel with full bar. Breakfast available.

This hotel is well situated no more than five minutes from the river and around a ten minute walk to the Charles Bridge or Old Town Square.

We stayed at this hotel for a two night city break. Our information about the hotel said that it was good for young people, and in fact the hotel does have some quality hostel type accomodation i.e. shared rooms.

With this in mind we were not entirely sure it was for us oldies but the rooms looked pretty good on the website.

When we arrived we were most pleasantly surprised at the quality of the accommodation and at the ambience. Our room was large, exceptionally clean, and very modern (the hotel has only been open since 2010). The queensize bed was comfortable with quality linen. The bathroom was one of the best and cleanest that we have stayed in recently.

Despite its town centre location the rooms are very quiet even sleeping with the windows open was not a problem.

The staff are all young and somewhat informal in T shirts and jeans but nonetheless they are efficient friendly and helpful.

Within the hotel there is a cafe bar style eaterie serving quality burger/tex mex style food at reasonable prices. We ate there on the evening that we arrived and the food was pretty good with good size portions. Drinks were reasonably priced as well.

Continental style buffet breakfast was available at a sensible cost though this was a little limited in scope and would have been repetitive to those staying a number of nights.

What a lovely place! The only criticism I have is that the doors are heavy and slam and thus the comings and goings of fellow guests did disrupt our sleep. The rooms are clean, simple and modern, and the bathroom and shower modern and bright. The fittings in the room are environmentally friendly, self adjusting and simple to work - lights, aircon, shutters.
The hotel has a young and vibey atmosphere, and the prices reasonable. The food (all you can eat buffet!) for breakfast was simple but tasty, and their burgers are a must have in their Belushi restaurant. Our quick weekend getaway was an absolute success and enjoyable and where we stayed played very much a role in this. loved the free wifi!
The staff are helpful friendly and fun - such a pleasure to see them enjoying themselves in their daily roles. The hotel is ideally placed with easy access to the city and places of interest. Our stay there was comfortable, fun and really affordable value for money - thank you all at mosaic house.
