The Taurus Hotel offers good value close to Central Prague. My room was of a reasonable size though I believe the room sizes do differ throughout the hotel. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows, a writing desk and cupboard were welcome additions to the room. The shower had good pressure though no toiletries beyond liquid soap were provided. I was on the fifth floor, though the lift only hoes as high as floor 4 so be aware of this and the lift is small and very slow. My only real complaint about the room was there was only a very small window high up which let in little light and you couldn't see out.
The breakfast provided was excellent and a great start to the day. The staff at the fron desk were always helpful and spoke good English.
It is a good 20-30 minute walk to attractions, best game the metro which is easy to use and only 150 metres from the hotel
