I've stayed here numerous times over the last 9 years and as I was invited to a wedding nearby, it seemed a logical option to book for 3 nights again.
As expected, by arriving early, our rooms were not prepared, but the receptionist was helpful in taking our cases and locking them away until early afternoon.
The room was very spacious as I recalled before, however just for my wife and I, there was a comfortable room with a sofa and more than adequate storage space.
The breakfast the following morning was adequate for our needs, however the hot container with eggs and pieces of meat / frankfurters was no longer hot. I think anything requiring cooking could have been done to order.
A short 5 min walk up the road to Kacerov Metro and the city centre was just 15mins away.
On one evening, we had decided to try out the cuisine in the restaurant at the hotel. The service was excellent and with english speaking waitress, we were attended to with some delicious meals.
Our final day and we were aware that the hotel was not that busy, and our flight back to UK wasn't until evening. So we asked if we could extend the use of the room until later in the afternoon. Permission was granted by a very helpful receptionist who before we left for our final walk around Prague, had ordered a taxi back to the airport.
For around £50 per night, the basic standard and comfortable accommodation was adequate and wondered why there were not more people staying there. Just a little out of the centre, but somewhere that we were even mistaken for locals when a Czech driver stopped us, asking for directions. Sadly we were unable to help. :-(
Be ambitious, and try something a little out of town... its worth it.
