We stayed for a week at the Caruso. We were 6 people (2 adults, 4 children) and had booked two rooms and asked for an extra bed in each.
The rooms turned out to be very big, so we ended up moving the extra beds to one room, thus making a separate room for the children. The hotel gives a good impression, being clean and with free wi-fi that generally worked very well. The bathrooms were also very nice and clean.
Breakfast is included, but it should be said that some days the staff had difficulty keeping up with the hungry guests. But still the buffet was nice with something for everybody, although a little bit on the Italian side with an ample supply of cakes and sweet stuff, but also fresh fruit every day.
The staff may seem a bit stuffy and authoritative, however they turned out to be very service minded. Our daughter had accidentally placed a bag with her swimwear and mobile in the wastepaper-bin. We found out two days later and told the concierge without expectations. However, amazingly they succeeded in revovering the bag. Furthermore, we were give a late check-out without surcharge.
If you are sensitive to noise, you should not have a room with windows to the street. Close to the hotels are two very popular bare (The Drunken Monkey and another boozing joint) and they attract noisy crowds. The windows are however very effective against noise, but a summer in Prague may be very hot and you will then like to sleep with your windows open.
In total, the Caruso is a nice family hotel, that perhaps should be rated with three or three and a half stars.
