I rated 4 stars as it Good for Boutique Hotel category and not your usual Big and Luxury hotel category. If you like modern & convenient boutique hotel , I would suggest this hotel, as the price is just above EUR100. It has a nice and popular Spa with Thai and Indonesian staffs for the massage.
It is walking distance to old town in about 10mins, Charles bridge is about 20mins walk and a nice Cezh restaurant with a red wheel behind the church. The hotel is opposite the church. There is a big shopping centre about 5 mins walk away on the main road.
The lobby and room both has a modern look unlike other Europe hotel. (See other Europe review). The lobby has a small drinking station which you can help yourself to lemon flavoured water and fruits. There is another room which you can have free tea or coffee during the day in a lounge setting ( not sure the time). I was out most days so did get a chance to use it.
The Buffet has your standard items, different juice like, apple, orange and multi-vitamin juice, cereal and bread, bacons etc. You can also order egg omelette, smoothie, and pancake. I like that they set the table with a small paper informing the weather. This gives you an idea how warm or cold the weather is for the day.
Staff were helpful in arranging transport and it cost about EUR33 from airport to Hotel. For a 8 hrs car hire and driver, is about EUR120 which can sit 4 persons comfortably. This is a good deal to have your own car where you can choose to visit attractions at your own pace especially for Elderly people. In 8 hrs we managed to cover a short tour of the Palace, had lunch at Celeste in Dancing Hall and a brief stop at the Railway station to reserve seat, photo stop of the clock tower at old town and shopping at the mall instead of Old town due to rain in the afternoon. We had a terrific professional driver called Charles, who was also was very attentive and look out for my elderly dad. He also was kind enough to give us complementary commentaries which was not part of his job as driver.
I had also booked for a 90min 1 for 1 massage package, but had problem getting booking as we required 2 female masseurs at the same time. Peter at Maximilian came down to the basement Spa and sorted it out and managed to get us 2 female Masseurs on our last day for 60mins instead. I asked if I could find one nearby on the day of my arrival due to pain in the shoulder and he found one about 5mins walk away.
The service in this hotel is fantastic from Reception to Buffet Breakfast place, always with a smile. I like that Tomas at reception was helpful with the bags as my parent were surprised in the earlier hotel that in Europe we had to carry our own bags to the hotel room. He even suggested 2 Czech food restaurant which we managed to try ones of them, and food were to our liking and prices is cheap for Europe standard.
This hotel staff is very attentive to little details such as using colored pens to marked out attractions on the city map, individual weather info on your breakfast table, free water at lobby and hot drink at their honesty lounge. Even lend you a Gold fish in your room as a pet. Just remember not to take out your card key when you leave the room and unplug the pump of the fish tank. This will kill the fish.
I hope to be back in this hotel in my next visit to Prague and hopefully a longer visit.
