“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

Arrived early morning after quick cab ride from train station, a room was ready for us despite the early hour. There was a bit of a mix up with the room, and the only reason for four stars was that I felt the front desk clerk was not the friendliest, put me off a bit at first. However, the rest of the stay was pleasant. Enjoyed the modern room, quite large. We stayed on the other side of the river our first time in Prague and wanted a bit of a different location, quite nice, easy to walk to sites, close to shopping. Staff recommended a great restaurant for dinner, and packed a breakfast to go on the way to the airport in the morning. Would stay again, and recommend.

We just returned to Canada from staying here for five nights. This is now one of our favourite hotels in Europe. It's stylish, clean and relaxed. The front line staff go very far out of their way to ensure a great time. Special kudos to Clementine for her special attention. Also, the drivers we used from the hotel were fantastic and very knowledgeable. As you'll read elsewhere, the breakfast buffet is stellar. Not only is the buffet exceptional, you can order almost anything from the kitchen. If the bananas and chocolate are on the menu, dive in for sure. We had room 701, which had a very nice view of the Tym Church. No real drawbacks, as far as we were concerned. No spa onsite, but a 2 minute walk to Maxmillan Hotel cured that. They offer Balinese massages a fairly reasonable prices. Ask for Shamish, he's amazing. If you're planning a visit to Prague, stay here. Unless you want something more old world.

The breakfast buffet is number one. Huge selection of fruits, hams, cheeses, bread etc. Besides the buffet you have a menu ala carte. You can customize your omellete, pancakes, benedikt egg, sin of the day etc. To name everything I'd be here forever. The room is cosy and bed comfortable, clean and fully equipped. Parking in the underground lots. Design, design, design. The location is perfect. Really five minutes walking to old town square. We would stay there again.

Had a positive experience here. Upon arrival, you are given a ticket for a free cocktail to have whenever you want. That evening I had a fantastic pina coloda in the courtyard. The room is clean and nice, not huge but fairly similar to many European rooms of this type. Modern décor. The breakfast is very good. You can also eat your breakfast in the nice courtyard. They have specials for breakfast each morning which you can order including special drinks or you can eat from the lovely buffet. The service was great. The hotel employees were friendly and helpful. They have a DVD library from which you can take movies to your room and watch. There is a computer room for people who don't lug computers around or have iphones to check your email.
Great location. You can walk to the main square easily.

Stayed at the hotel Josef for two nights in November.

Room: Booked a superior deluxe with a glassbathroom through the hotels webpage. Requested the room to be on a higher floor, with a view and away from the elevators. Only the latter was fulfilled. However the room was awesome - trendy, bright and spacious enough to meet our needs entirely. The beds were comfortable and the room was extremly quiet. (got one in the orange building facing the backyard). The bathroom was fancy, we loved the design - go for a room with a glassed bathroom. Free wi-fi.

Service: Very helpful and smiling staff all over. Booked their airport transfer service, and the drivers were very nice and pleasant to speak with so we also booked them instead of taxis when we needed to go somewhere around town and were tired of walking. Thanks guys!

Location: Great location in my opinion, just outside of the hustle and bustle of the old town but still within walking distance to almost anything.

Breakfast: One of the best ever. Excellent choice of fresh fruits (10 different kinds), pancakes and eggs made to order, anything you would wish for actually.

Value: You get more than what you pay for, end of story.

Will definetly want to return to the Josef. This was definetly a nice oasis to come "home" to after a long day exploring the great city of Prague.

Hotel Josef is modern, reasonably priced and conveniently located to Old Town.

The staff are extremely helpful and kind - an airport pickup was arranged for me with one quick email.

I would highly recommend

Had a great time, very central location close walking distance to all major sights. Hotel is clean and well maintained, staff are extremely helpful, they spend time making sure you know where you are going. In fact I cannot say enough about how nice the staff were. Breakfast was not included, but we ate there every morning, there was a lot of variety, more than most European hotels. The staff also gave excellent recommendations for restaurants close to the hotel. My trip to Prague was excellent and I will stay here again without a doubt on my next trip.
