We arrived at around 2am, having been delayed at Heathrow for nearly 10 hours. I called the hotel before to let them know we would be late, and they confirmed that they were open 24/7 and would keep our room for us, which was great. When we got to the airport, the hotel reception gave us the number of a reliable taxi firm (dial 14014 from your mobile when you get to Prague), which was great as there are many taxis hanging around the arrival hall, and it is easy to get ripped off!
The room in the hotel was fabulous, very large, clean, recently refurbished and perfect for our stay. Beds were comfortable and the two pillows per bed was a nice touch! The bathroom was decorated to a high standard, and the toiletries supplied were nice. Breakfast was a decent continental spread, complete with some really lovely cake from a local bakery.
Location-wise, we were 5 mins away from the Old Town and Charles Bridge. Walking to the Castle / Mala Strana area probably took 20 mins, but this isn't a problem when the walk is so nice! The hotel is opposite a police station, and there are a couple of bars nearby, but we were amazed at just how quiet the hotel was at night. We were there during snow and a cold snap, but the rooms were warm and comfortable.
We've been to Prague before, and the 4 star we stayed in before wasn't a patch on the Unitas! We'd absolutely stay here again.
Prague Zoo is a must - but be prepared to walk, as it is very large and situated around a steep hill! It looks like there's a chairlift in the summer, but not in the winter. We had pleasant meals in Cowboys (Mala Strana) and U Vejvodu (Pilsner Urquell beerhall near the hotel) but be careful of the 19% tax added to your bill!
