I've stayed in the Josef on several different occasions and I didn't hesitate to chose it again for a trip to Prague I undertook in October 2011. The hotel itself was as good as ever however there were a couple of problems with this trip.

First of all I arrived late on a Friday night only to be told that "sorry, there is a problem with your room" which is hotel speak for "as you've already paid for your room at a reduced rate we have sold it again at a higher price" and I was told I would have to go to the Grand Hotel Bohemia for the first night of my stay and that one of their drivers would take me there. Reluctantly I agreed and was taken to the other hotel (see seperate review) and herein lies the second problem.

As it was quite late, and not knowing where this other hotel was, I asked the driver to take me to U Vejvodu as I knew that would be open at this time of night to get something to eat. As it turned out the Grand Hotel Bohemia is only 200 metres away from the Hotel Josef and the driver when taking me to the pub for food took an extremely lengthy route and upon arrival insited on charging me 400Kc for it. A complete rip off and although the driver was very charming and talkative I was not impressed by this at all. It got my trip off to a bad start and has slightly tainted my view of the Josef.

Other than that, when I did finally get to check in everything went smoothly and I was offered a free breakfast for the rest of my stay to compensate for not being able to stay there the first night. The room was big and comfortable although I wasn't to keen on the raised glass bathroom bit as opposed to the more traditional bathrooms I've seen in other Josef rooms.

I'd still recommend it though, just stay clear of their in house driving service!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony - these usually cost more, but you might get one for a standard price if you say it is a special occasion.

hotel josef was an outstanding experience of pampering service. - polite, smiling and efficient staff added to top even the perfect location of the hotel in the city-centre.
use their limo-offers - a worthy add-on for very fair rates compared to the normal taxis.
breakfast was very good, maybe they could improve on the selection of cheese and the quality of coffee served at breakfast. but otherwise all was splendid.
coffee in the lobby was of hgihgest quality :-)

We stayed at the hotel josef for a long weekend to celebrate my partners 30th. After booking the hotel I emailed their concierge to let them know it was my partners birthday and to see if there was any restaurants they could suggest. They were more then helpful and on arrival they had placed champagne, chocolates and a cake with candles in our room, my partner was really chuffed.
The rooms are lovely and clean, also very quiet. The breakfast was very tasty and lots to choose from. The location is good and close to the old square, we walked everywhere.
One night we decided to stay in our room and hire one of their DVDs, we were very suprised when the lady from reception brought us up a big bowl of popcorn. We thought this was really lovely and thoughtful.
Overall we were more then happy with everything about the hotel but the staff really were outstanding. They were always so helpful and friendly and we liked all the little added touches that made us feel really special. I would definately reccomend this hotel.

Stayed at the Josef for four nights and have no complaints about this hotel. Our room was spacious, spotless and had everything that we needed. As many have said, the Aveda toiletries were a nice touch and there is a really powerful shower in the bathroom.
We took advantage of the sauna which is brilliant, you need to book an hour in advance but it's worth it with bottled water and robes provided.
We didn't sample the hotel breakfast as at 500czk per person it seemed a little steep and there are many local cafes and bakeries that offer substantial tastey breakfasts for much less (highly recommend the Bakeshop and Bohemia Bagel).
The location of this hotel is fantastic, 5 minutes walk to the Old Town square and many bars and restaurants on the way. It's a great base to explore Prague city centre. Would definitely return!

Room Tip: Ask for a see through bathroom, it's quite cool!

Dear Valued Guest,

thank you for your great feedback. We are happy you enjoyed your stay.
Now that winter is upon us, it is especially nice to take our complimentaru sauna. And maybe some contrast shower afterwords, if you are into a bit of extreme.

We are looking forward to seeing you again in Hotel Josef!
