“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Absolutely no complaints about this hotel at all. We arranged a pick up from the airport which worked perfectly, both that driver and the one who drove us back were polite, friendly and very informative. All the staff in the hotel were also very friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble.
We had a room in the Orange house which was extremely quiet and I had the best sleep in a long time. The glass bathroom took a bit of getting used to, but made for an interesting change!
I can't recommend the breakfast too highly, each morning of our 3 day stay there was something different to try, the breads were wonderful and my husband enjoyed his Egg Royale so much he had it two days running.
Location was also perfect for exploring and there is a great cafe, Au Gourmand, round the corner and also a lovely Italian restaurant less than 5 minutes walk away.
We loved our stay in Prague, even though it was freezing cold, and the Hotel Josef was the icing on the cake! Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Stay in the Orange house for a quiet location above the garden

We felt very welcomed and comfortable at this hotel. Arranged driver to pick up at the airport and the process for that arrangement was easy, clear and straightforward. On arrival we were greeted like honoured guests. The concierge was helpful with suggestions on restaurants. The staff was always friendly and professional. The location was excellent - safe, easy walk to old town square. The breakfast was excellent - you can order from the menu in addition to the buffet that was offered. The pastries were freshly made and delicious. Bonus that they provided a blender and a juicer so we could make our own smoothies and fresh juices. I looked forward to that every morning - very welcomed as Czech food tended to be heavy on meat and potatoes. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Wifi was good and free.
Overall really enjoyed our stay. If I ever return to Prague I would definitely stay here again.

The staff here couldn't have been nicer. I wish I could remember all the names, but hope they know they ALL were the best. We had a room on the front and it was quite warm the week we were there, so noisy with the window open. So if you can request a room that opens on the courtyard- it should be quiet and cool. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the courtyard side or at least not on the street side.

Stayed here over Easter weekend with friends and it was a real joy. As there were 4 of us we got the hotel car to pick us up from the airport, and the driver was like a tour guide with all his information! All the staff throughout the hotel, cleaners, waiters, reception, bar, concierge etc were incredibly helpful and attentive.
Breakfast was a real treat, plentiful fruit, yoghurts, breads, cakes, main dishes etc. even had a juicer to use with fresh ginger etc and you could make your own smoothies, with soya milk too.
The included main dish from a menu was superb, friends really liked the egg creations, and I can recommend the pan cakes!
Room was great, and they added a kettle and I phone player on request ( we only had the coffee maker). I had the feeling they would have gone a long way to meet any requests. Sauna was nice, and gym looked good, though we didn't try it. Courtyard garden was lovely, and would probably get a room facing it next time as I think due to Easter and us liking open windows, there was some street noise in our room, 503 I think. Very centrally placed, eg for Ungelt jazz club and veggie restaraunt Maitrea, and all sites.
Will definitely go again and use this hotel, a weekend in Prague is not long enough!

Room Tip: Room on 5th floor facing street a bit noisey but it was Easter weekend and we did have the window op...

My 5 night stay at the Josef could not have been better. The old town location is convenient and picturesque. The hotel's modern design, arranged around a landscaped courtyard, is smart and stylish. Rooms facing the courtyard are both bright and quiet. The free breakfast is a feast, and if weather permits, you can eat alfresco in the courtyard. The staff is charming, friendly and helpful. Minor quibble: the housekeeping staff tends to run behind schedule, so you may come back to your room in the afternoon and find it as you left it in the morning, but a phone call to the front desk can solve this problem quickly.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are quiet.

Josef is a wonderful hotel, very centrally located (10 min walk from the Old Town Square, in the proximity of both a subway- and a tram-station, as well as several larger shopping malls), with a VERY friendly and helpful multilingual staff that would go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are PERFECTLY clean, quiet and spacious (a double deluxe perfect for a family with kids), the room service excellent. We really enjoyed the delicious breakfasts (both buffet and a la carte, with plenty of choices for big and small), the excellent coffee and over all the wonderful, friendly atmosphere. The interior is very modern, clean, spacious, with plenty of daylight and wonderful colors. We returned home yesterday and are already missing it.... thanks for the unique experience, we hope to be back :)

We were extremely happy with our experience at Hotel Josef. We found a great deal on their website, and stayed two nights. It was very clean, modern, in a good location, had great service, and their breakfast (which is included) was the best complimentary breakfast we had at any hotel. Usually a complimentary breakfast in Europe consists of some cold cuts and a bread basket. At Hotel Josef, not only do they have a pretty nice variety of food in the buffet area, they give you a choice of warm dishes made to order (eggs benedict, pancakes, omelet etc..), complimentary coffee of your choice (french press, cappuccino, latte, etc..) and they even have a fresh juicing station where you can juice your own concoction of fresh juice for breakfast!
Hotel Josef really takes that extra step to make you feel welcome and well taken care of. We drove to Prague, and when we arrived to park in the garage, a warm staff member escorted us down and helped us park our car. During our stay, whenever we needed anything, every staff member was welcoming and very helpful. Even when booking your room on their website, you are given the option to choose a complimentary gift such as a free cocktail during your stay! In addition, I'm always a sucker for nice bath products in hotels, and Hotel Josef provides Korres bath products!
Overall, everything was fantastic about Hotel Josef. The only reason I would give it one less star is due to their hallways. Although the rooms are decorated in a clean and modern style, the hallways could use some more attention to match the level of design in the rooms and common areas. However, the hallways are a minor detail and the overall experience was wonderful!
