“lived up to expectations”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

My wife and I stayed 4 nights and we can't speak highly enough of the excellent service and friendliness of the staff. The room lived up to expectations and the breakfast selection was excellent. The hotel arranged a limousine pick up and drop off to the airport and when we arrived we were taken on a walking tour to orient ourselves with the area. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring almost everything you want to see on foot. It is certainly a hotel we would not hesitate to return to the next time we visit Prague.

Room Tip: Our room was a corner room overlooking the street. Except for some party goers in the street late at...

Loved this hotel! Very well located! Walking distance to almost all tourist sites! Very comfortable hotel, modern, clean. Amazing service from
everyone, especially Renata at the front desk. Be sure to check Lokal (czech pub/restaurant), which is a 2 min walk away!

This is a very overdue review, but better late than never! Had a short stay at Hotel Josef last Christmas, the hotel could not be more worthy of all the great reviews. The room was as beautiful as in the photos, not extremely spacious but well designed, nicely decorated and very functional, with a beautiful glass bathroom which was a nice touch and precious views over the city's rooftops. Fresh, made-to-order breakfast of very good quality, with imaginative day specials which we always tried and invariably enjoyed. Great location within walking distance to Old Town Square and shopping malls. Very good service with attention to detail and customer-friendly attitude of staff. The concierge made escellent suggestions for restaurants and the like. The highlight was that they booked us THE single best table at a prestigious French restaurant for Christmas Eve, which I am sure many other guests would have asked for but hotel Josef's concierge managed to secure for us. Overall great value for money, would stay there again anytime and highly recommended!

Room Tip: Get a high floor room / corner room if you can, totally worth the extra euro.

We have chosen Hotel Josef after reviewing the traveler’s comment in Tripadvisor.

The location is great. It is in the middle between Old Town Square-Prague’s central square (where the iconic Astronomical Clock is located) and Namesti Republiky (where the Powder Tower, Hybernia Theater, Palladium-the biggest shopping centre in Prague are located). The street on which the hotel is located is a busy street but not noisy. Many cafes and restaurants nearby hotel.

The hotel is modern and trendy in design. The hotel has simple clean cut interiors and spacious rooms and provides free wifi. The bedroom and bathroom are clean.

The hotel is very generous on the breakfast. The food and beverages during breakfast are various and in good quality. The breakfast includes the side order menu like egg benedict. We also got one time complimentary dinner the restaurant.

The staffs hotel are excellent. They are friendly, helpful, informative, fluent in English which made our first visit to Prague memorable.

A big thanks to Andrea who took us a thirty minutes walking tour around the hotel neighborhood so we know other interesting places nearby hotel like beer museum, the starting point of Jewish Quarter, short cut to Namesti Republiky etc. When we informed that we will visit Budapest after Prague, she happily shared the highlight of Budapest and getting around Budapest. We really appreciate it.

We absolutely recommend this hotel to our friends and relatives when they are going to Prague and we will stay in this hotel when we return to Prague.

A modern hotel located in the heart of the old city.
Best value, I think, of the four other similar hotels in the neighborhood.
Modern, bright design.
perfectly clean and maintained.
Probably the best breakfast a hotel can offer in Prague.
Loved it. Will definitely come again...
points for improvements:
- AC in the roof gym
- replace carpet for a parquet floor
- clean stains or replace tiles in restaurant corridor

We stayed for 5 nights at Hotel Josef in mid July. The hotel is spotless, very well managed, extremely friendly and very comfortable. We chose a slightly larger room (Superior Deluxe Sofa) and booked directly with the hotel to insure that our breakfast was included in the booking. As a gift they provided us with a wonderful bottle of wine and we were able to participate in a "stay 4 pay for 3" night offer! Breakfast was perfect, a sea of delicious choices and plentiful. We were so impressed we hosted some visitors for breakfast who were equally enamored. They ended up staying that night and enjoying a second amazing breakfast the next morning.

An easy walk to the Old Town Square, but far away enough to miss the late night throngs that visit that neighborhood. Centrally located to sites and easy transportation using Prague's tram system which looks harder than it is. The front desk has tram tickets for sale and will instruct you how to use it, making the experience even easier.

The concierge provided us with valuable suggestions for our visit to the typical tourist sites including the Prague Castle, the Jewish Quarter, Old Town Square, restaurants and helped us make reservations for a visit to Terezin - through a well reviewed company that I had already identified on Tripadvisor prior to visiting. That tour, which I will review soon, was less than great and when we mentioned to the concierge how disappointed we were she immediately contacted the tour operator.

One last note, the hotel also provided us with a wonderful driver who was waiting with a sign at the airport upon arrival - a seamless experience for exhausted travelers and called a reliable taxi to take us to the train station when we left.

All-in-all a perfect hotel in a wonderful city.
