Stayed at the Maximilian Hotel in October in Prague. Location wasn't bad. In the really close vicinity there aren't many sites but you can walk to the main shopping street Parizska where you can find high end shops and Cremeria Milano - hailed as the best gelato in Prague (and it was very yummy). Other sites like Old Town take a bit of a walk and the closest bus stop is probably a 10 min walk as well.
Overall the hotel was clean and neat with a nice lobby and staff were pleasant enough. However overall found service in Prague to be not great. When to an Italian restaurant Aromi - which was Italian food - it was alright - we ordered a fish baked in salt (one of their specials that night) and ended up eating a lot of sea salt chunks that were still stuck to the fish. Also ate at Kolkovny close to the hotel. This is a chain store with just awful service. They turned away many customers and had many empty tables. Saw this in action as we were waiting 40 minutes for takeout food (which was grudgingly done) and were yelled at when trying to ask for a menu and then order by a waiter who said 'can't you see I'm busy?" So definitely no to that restaurant! Food wasn't even that great and we ordered traditional Czech specials off the menu.
Definitely don't miss Prague Castle and just below the castle at Hotel Neruda is yummy hot chocolate - touted the best in Prague (although service was still less than desirable). Perhaps it was just a statement of the city though. Overall it's a beautiful city and the hotel was definitely up to par in terms of modern styling and design. Upside to being a little bit of a walk is that it's a quieter area. probably would have enjoyed the walk more if it wasn't so cold when we were there.
