“Nice and modern hotel in the center of prague within walking distance of the square”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

Nice and modern hotel with hospitable staff. Breakfast buffet is outstanding and well above average. Have experienced very small rooms so if you like your room to be big, ask!.
Rooms are well utilized and clean and have seperate bathrooms/showers. Easy accessable thruogh multiple elevators. Light and sizable lobby, not very private though as it is facing the street through open windows.

Room Tip: Ask for a big room

Stayed one night for business. Very impressed. Very modern and contemporary. Room was excellent. Very spacious and modern design was really refreshing. Certainly not your run of the mill hotel room. The large glass walled bathroom was amazing. Room service was excellent. Breakfast and lunch were also very good indeed but beware huge portions of food!!
Internet was by wifi - fast, easy to connect and free.
All staff were polite and very efficient indeed. All spoke superb English.
Highly recommended.

We stayed at Design Hotel Josef in October 2012 during a 4 night trip to Prague. I chose the hotel based on the great reviews on Tripadvisor, the location, and the price. I'm happy to say that the hotel met all of my expectations and more. The location was ideal for exploring the Jewish quarter and the central square of Prague, both of which were in walking distance. It is also quite close to the Municipal Building which I have to say is a must-see in Prague if you enjoy Art Nouveau architecture. I was also pleasantly surprised by the breakfast that was included in the rate of our stay. We were able to order eggs, cappuccino, and other breakfast items in addition to the buffet. The rooms were modern and quite large and our bathroom had a rain shower which was a nice touch. All in all, a great hotel.
One note - I would agree with some of the other reviewers about using the taxis at the airport instead of using the hotel car. As long as you make sure to take a AAA taxi you should not have any problems with being overcharged and it is definitely less than what the hotel car costs. However, it is convenient to use the hotel car when you might need to travel to another part of Prague when it's cold and dark outside!

Our first trip to Prague, and this hotel made it a great experience. It is well located within walking distance of two major squares in downtown Prague. When we first saw the location we were not so sure, but don't be fooled. The room was very nice, but don't expect a view here. The service was exceptional. We decided to watch a DVD in our room one night. They sent popcorn up so we could enjoy the experience. The next day was my wife's birthday (I guess they got the info from our passports). They send a small cake with a candle to our room that evening. Very impressive. They also gave us complimentary breakfasts the next morning. The breakfast was superb, although we typically don't purchase breakfast when in Europe because there usually relatively expensive for what you get. We're more the roll and cup-of-coffee type. But I digress. We totally enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel to others.

Fantastic location, beautiful hotel and best breakfasts in Prague.
All the staff were very attentive, the rooms had very good beds and little extras such as nespresso coffee.
Airport transfers very good.
Look forward to staying here again.

This well located hotel with a charming staff made our stay in Prague more than pleasant. After staying 1 week we can say that every breakfast was unique, we loved the DIY smoothie bar! We contacted them for requesting the Airport to Hotel transfer and v.v. (with an infant seat) and were not disappointed. The property is well maintained and you have the sensation that every small detail is taken care of.

Modern, clean, stylish and brilliantly located hotel in Prague. My husband and I had an amazing week staying here, and we didn't want to leave! It was wonderful to stay in a warm and modern hotel in the middle of the Prague winter. The staff were so welcoming and incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our stay. There is good, free wifi throughout the hotel which was very convenient. Our room was absolutely spotless, spacious, comfortable and warm but had a big door/window which we opened at night for fresh air, so it didn't get too stuffy. Our bed was huge and had lovely silky sheets that I would love to have at home! We also had a Nespresso machine in our room, a DVD player, and were able to borrow a Bose sound system from the hotel free of charge for plugging in an iPod (note: it didn't work for iPhone). The breakfasts are something else - everything you can imagine and then some. An incredible array of fresh fruits including strawberries in the middle of winter. The food was outstanding, and the breakfast buffet included a huge selection of other surprises such as a juice and smoothie area where you could make up your own creations. While expensive (380CZK per person) it was worth it before a day of sightseeing on foot and kept us going until dinnertime. The location is wonderful - right in the middle of everything but tucked away from the super touristy areas. We walked everywhere very quickly and easily and only took the metro once, when we went to a local ice hockey game in an outer suburb. Honestly, I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Go, stay there and have a wonderful time as we did!

Dear Kim M,

thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful feedback! It's great to hear that you made the most of your time in Prague! It's true, during the Ice Hockey season it is well worth it to meet some locals at one of the matches.
Also thank you for pointing out our breakfast - if it is not included it may appear expensive but as you said, it really keeps you going for a while. It actually is always included if you book with our reservation team.
