I stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Josef. I was offered welcome drinks at the bar as I booked online.

The hotel is modern and clean. Staff is friendly. I got a room with a view on the 5th floor. The hotel is conveniently located, under 10 mins to metro, 10 mins to Old Town and 20 minutes to Charles Bridge.

As I read about taxi scams and how taxis tend to overcharge, I asked the hotel to arrange a car to pick me up from the train station, and a car to take me to the airport. The drivers were on time both occasions and the transfers were smooth.

Lastly, I must compliment on the breakfast. It's the best ever. The selection of food is impressive, with freshly baked bread, make-your-own smoothies and juices, and different egg dishes to choose from (eggs benefit, eggs florentine, omelette). The breakfast room is bright with floor to ceiling windows that oversee a courtyard.

I enjoyed my stay very much and I highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel Josef is a very modern hotel in a great location in Prague. It seemed everything we wanted to see was just a short walk away. The rooms are well designed with stylish, modern interiors. The complimentary breakfast we had here was the best we had on our entire trip.

However, the service is what really set Hotel Josef apart for us. I mentioned we were staying there during my wife's birthday when we made our reservation. When we checked in we had a chilled bottle of wine and a chocolate cake waiting in our room. The desk staff was very friendly, and the concierge always answered all our questions and assisted us with whatever we needed.

My daughter and I recently stayed at Design Hotel Josef, and was greeted by a welcoming staff, that was very helpful and polite. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the hotel is in a great location. A short walk to almost everything you want to see and do. However, my favorite memory of this hotel is the AMAZING breakfast buffet. WOW, this was by far the best breakfast we had in our 18 days abroad.

I highly recommend this hotel.

I rarely write reviews on Trip Advisor, but I feel compelled to say something about my stay recently at the Hotel Josef in Prague. Renovated in an attractive, modern style, the hotel is in a terrific location: it’s in the Old Town, a 5-10 minute walk to the Old Town Square, the Jewish Quarter, and most of the major sites in Prague, but it’s is on a quiet side street, so you are far removed from the crowds and the noise of the tourist areas.

We stayed in a lovely Superior Deluxe Balcony room (Room 809) that was very roomy (certainly by European standards), with a comfortable queen bed, large closet, two reading chairs, a desk, flat-panel TV, Nespresso coffee machine, and a spacious bathroom with large walk-in shower. The room was exceptionally quiet - even on Friday and Saturday nights, we could hear no noise from the street - and Wi-Fi service is reasonably strong in the rooms (much stronger than in most European hotels).

Breakfast is terrific: made-to-order eggs plus a buffet with a tantalizing array of hot (sausage, bacon, etc.) and cold meats; croissants, fresh bread, and pastries; smoked salmon and a selection of cheeses; fruit and yogurt; and so on.

The staff could not be more charming and helpful. They provided excellent recommendations for dinner and made reservations for us. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and shortly after our arrival, we were greeted with champagne and a slice of delicious chocolate cake, another example of how thoughtful and attentive the staff are.

Hotel Josef is as close as one can get to a perfect hotel in a city we came to love. Bottom line: we can’t wait to go back!

Many reasons to choose this Hotel for your stay :
Easy to locate & Great Location - we took a tram from the main train station and got off at Namestey Republic stop just 5 -7 Mins from the station. You will see Palladium Mall, right opposite Palladium you will see a Passage, go right across and you will see the hotel on your right. Its takes 5 - 10 minutes to reach the shopping district, old town, palladium shopping centre, best bars & restaurants & Charles Bridge (we walked every night to the bridge). They also offer one complimentary cocktail from the lobby Bar during your stay.
Friendly Staff - Welcome with a smile, quick check-in, staff assisted us till the room and explained us all the facilities inside the room. Front Desk staff - Mohamed Elshazly really looked after us all throughout our stay. He would offered us water bottle, fruits, umbrella whenever we went outside the hotel. Superb service & thanks for your hospitality
Gala Breakfast - Probably the best quality buffet breakfast spread you can expect on a holiday, Live food station, you can squeeze fresh fruit and vegetable juices. Apart from the Buffet they offer you a special menu to choose any one main dish and one dessert.
Design & Decor - nice colors to the decor and rooms are spacious. quiet rooms, great light fittings to the room. very modern and chic. Nespresso coffee machine in the room, locker in the room, comfortable bed. My only suggestion would be if they change the towels, they are thin & small sized.
Without a doubt will recommend this hotel to all going to Prague. You will love it!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the building that is not facing the main street.
