“Excellent Hotel!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

This is the perfect hotel for visiting Prague.
1. it is a very quiet hotel - but still 3 minutes away (by foot) from the old town square.
2. you are surrounded by restaurants and bars near the hotel - especially the Korean restaurant which is very recommended.
3. the breakfast in the hotel is very good - you have a good selection of bread,fruit,cheese,etc. you also get a dish for you selection - egg/pancakes done especially for you.
4. we wanted to do online checkin for our flight, so we used the very convenient business room - which we also printed our vouchers from there (for free).
5. you receive 2 small bottles of water each day, and if you go to the business room you have more bottles if you need.
6. All the staff was superb! everyone was smiling and keen to help you with everything! When we arrived it was my birthday, so I even got a piece of cake complimentary from the hotel to our room, in addition to a free meal and cocktail (for each of us). Again - amazing staff.
7. Almost forgot to mention - the rooms were very clean, big and comfortable - and this is the first hotel I encountered which has a very comfortable bed. (we took the SOFA room - by previous advice here).

I recommend everyone coming to Prague - go to this hotel! you won't be disappointed!
I will surely comeback here!

Room Tip: the SOFA rooms are very big and cozy - recommended

Despite an unavoidable issue with our reservation, the staff at Hotel Josef made every effort to ensure our stay in Prague was memorable. Throughout our stay, we were treated as though we were royalty. A special thanks to Phillipe for his extraordinary customer focused service. Clean comfy rooms. Great location and amazing breakfast. I have already recommended Hotel Josef to friends who are planning to visit Prague this summer.

We were searching for a hotel in good location and reasonable price and found this hotel, after reading the reviews here we decided to book it.
The hotel was perfect, great staff, service with a smile and always happy to help.
We took a room with sofa which was spacious, comfortable bed and very clean.
When we will come back to beautiful Prague we are definitely going to stay in this hotel again!

This is by far the most costumer friendly hotel ever.
Clean beautiful hotel, quiet, cosy, innovative and with the best best best breakfast.

Not only that, the location of the hotel is perfect, 5 minutes from the old town square, 2 minutes from the palladium and metro/tram, but in the same time in a quiet not busy street.

You will find a good advise wether you want to go to eat or directions to your destination. So nice stuff!!! Every thing you ask for is done with a big smile!!

Our daughter had recommended this hotel and we weren't disappointed. Nothing 'OTT' just a very clean comfortable modern hotel only 5 minutes walk from the Old Town Square. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the staff (all with an excellent command of English) very keen to please. A cold face flannel was offered on arrival as it was 36 degrees C outside and there were complementary cold drinks in reception. The wi-fi was excellent and there was also free use of Apple i-Macs in a computer room for email etc and a printer attached as well.
The air-conditioning in the rooms worked very well as it needed to with an outside temperature of 36 degrees!! Pick up from/to the train station and airport was easily arranged in advance.

We stayed in this wonderful design hotel for three days, which is located very central in the Jewish Quarter and nearby a lot of famous sights of Prague. Because of the location, you can do a lot by foot or you can rely on the public transport to visit the rest of the city.
Due to a technical maintanance error in our room, the first night didn't get by as planned, but the proactive deed of the Hotel Josef staff was just impeccable. Therefore, I would like to thank in particular Mr. Félipe Clara for all efforts he did to make our stay just immaculate.
The staff in general is very helpful and friendly, the room neat with a sweet personal detail for their guests. Fo sure, when visiting Prague, your experience can't be more complete, while combining your stay in this hotel and wandering through this beautiful city.

My birthday treat for my husband was a stay in Prague. For me, the hotel forms an important part of a holiday. Of the four European cities we were to visit, I was looking most forward to the Josef.

Walking into the hotel, we were wowed by the decor, modernity and light. You can imagine my disappointment, though, when I was informed that the specific room I had confirmed - three months earlier - was not available due to an administration error by the reservations person. This meant that my husband and I would wake up on his birthday in a room with no bath (I had lugged a special bottle of champagne from the bottom of Africa to have in the bath) and having to pack up big suitcases and move rooms. The apology from the reception staff was perfunctory, although they did send wine and strawberries to the room as an apology, and organised a cake and Prosecco for his birthday.

The rooms were much smaller than I expected, but contemporary and comfortable. Great bed. The breakfasts are not to be missed. I can't remember how much they cost, but the value was so high that the price was forgotten!

The hotel is short walk to the old town square. We weren't unhappy being a bit removed from the hubbub of the square.

I've done separate reviews of a couple of restaurants, but we loved Lokal (very close to the hotel) - an old Communist beer hall with its interesting beers and "real" food. Also, dinner for my hubby's birthday at Mlynec was truly special.

Room Tip: The bigger the better.
