This is by far the best value you can find in Prague when it comes to location, price, and staff. I would just stop reading this review now and book a room right away. Imaging waking up and looking out your window and seeing the river, and the Prague Castle in the distance. Then as you prepare for your day you have a nice included breakfast in the dinning hall with, again, a great view of the city. If the views are great, the location is even better. Located just a short 10 minute walk from the Charles bridge, and another short walk from the Old Town this boat hotel is in the middle of everywhere while away from it all. Getting to the hotel from the airport it's really easy by public transportation. Just take bus 119 to metro Stop Dejvicka, take that line to Staromestska; once there take the stairs on your left (the ones with the signs that have all the Trams), once on the street make a left and walk towards the river, and then turn right walk pass the bridge then look for the ramp that takes you to the boat.
Due to its location on the river and away from the crowds you can fall soundly asleep after a long day. Do not worry about the boat rocking and getting sick because that will not happen. The boat is perfectly anchored and you won't feel any movement. The single rooms have a huge bed that take out most of the space but I'm ok with that, the view and location more than make up for it.
The front desk staff is very attentive, and helpful. The night front desk guy, Jiri, really went out of his way for us whenever we asked him for help. The dinning room staff could use some help from Jiri as they can be rather rough at times. Make sure that you have cash if you are having dinner in the boat as they don't take cards in the dinning room. You can have a nice 3 course meal for only 7 euros. The hotel also has a wide open deck on top perfect for having a beer, or a bottle of wine and enjoying the view late at night.
Every city with a river needs a Florentina Boat hotel, and an employee like Jiri.
