“In one word - GREAT !”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

We found Hotel Josef on TripAdvisor and decided to bet on it based on the wonderful reviews it got.
What a fantastic bet it was!!! We loved every moment there.

Hotel Josef is set in a refurbished old building in a small, quiet street just steps away from the Palladium shopping center and a few minutes' walk from Old Town Square / Staromestske namesti. It’s an excellent base to explore the city.

We were very impressed with its beautiful modern décor. Our room was on the 8th floor and had marvelous views of the castle and old town's red roofs.

Breakfast was superb and we enjoyed watching the hotel's baker, Nima Hemmat-Azad, preparing all kinds of gourmet breads and pastries.

The hotel's staff (reception and breakfast) was welcoming, pleasant and very polite: they made us feel special on one hand and at home on the other.
Service at Josef Hotel is impeccable!

We enjoyed our stay so much that we immediately decided to come back next spring,
So – thank you for an unforgettable stay and see you again soon!

We spent three nights in mid-August at this hotel. The reviews on trip advisor were right on the mark. The hotel is clean with good size rooms which are bright and well appointed. Bathrooms were modern, toiletries were wonderful and mattresses comfortable. The location of the hotel is on a quiet street but very close to the action on the old town square. Excellent buffet Breakfast with made to order dishes and fresh breads and pastries baked by the Pastry chef. Especially the hot Croissants were a perfect start to the day. The best part was the staff. From front desk to all the waiters and waitresses and the bartender, everyone was helpful, polite and friendly. Special thanks to Jana and Florentine for helping me with Airline related issues. A suggestion to management would be to add some storage space for clothes, there were a few hangers but overall there really was no place to keep the clothes.
Would definitely stay here again.

Everything about this hotel was great! The front desk staff, the waiter and waitresses at the restaurant where we had a delicious breakfast every morning, the bellman and the concierge were so warm and friendly and accommodating. Every morning they would great us hello! The concierge, Mirka, helped my family enormously by assisting with our train travels which were to be AFTER our stay in Prague. She went well beyond what would be expected! The hotel is very modern - our room was nice and large enough for me, my husband and 21 year old daughter. The location of the hotel was perfect! It was close to restaurants and shopping. A five to ten minute walk to Old Town Square and the Jewish Quarter as well as the Municipal House which we went to for a concert one evening. The Charles Bridge is a 15 minute walk and there are trams or buses (if you don't want to walk) that would take you to the Prague Castle on the other side of the Charles Bridge.I would definitely recommend this hotel and if I was ever to visit Prague again I would stay at Hotel Josef!

We stayed here in August for 4 nights and we absolutely loved the hotel. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the old town square however it is away from the noise of the old town square..

The room is slightly small but this could be my individual view as I have largely travelled in Asia where the rooms are generally very large..

As you are in Prague you do not get too many English channels however this hotel has a lovely collection of DVDs to suit your liking.

The breakfast was great and they have a lovely French chef who was friendly and helped me brush up my French.. the croissants and the baguette is a must try and it took me back to my days in France..

However the best part of the hotel is the staff. Right from the people on the reception, to the young man in the bar, the chefs and the waiters. They make you feel wanted and special.. We had a lovely experience and they helped us with all our queries.


The next time I visit Prague or know of someone visiting Prague I am definitely going to recommend this hotel to them...


Also there are some lovely restaurants situated a minute or two away from this hotel..

Loved everything about this contemporary small boutique hotel. Management should be proud of their staff – friendly, personable, cheerful and couldn’t do enough to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. Our room was spacious and immaculate, with understated décor – but with a pop of color – bright orange or hot pink. Loved the vibrant colors! The bed was very comfortable and the complimentary bottles of water were very much appreciated. The bathrooms are very well thought out and have lots of space above the sink for toiletry items. The towel holders are great and give you ample room for wet things to be dried out. Great planning. Mirka, head of concierge, went out of her way to recommend things to do and places to eat based on our likes – and one of the suggestions she made, to a 13th century convent close by, turned out to be the highlight of sights we saw in Prague. The breakfast offerings were particularly memorable, with the best croissants I’ve ever had. Nima (I hope I remembered his name correctly!) makes all the breads in house and does an amazing job. Wished I could have taken an armload of his croissants home with me – or kidnapped Nima to Houston. The hotel’s within an 8 to 10-minute walk to the main square and within easy walking distance to most things on the Pest side of the river. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else if I go back to Prague.

My friend and I stayed 2 nights in this very nice hotel, perfectly located (with all amenities within short walking distance) and very comfortable. The bedroom was nicely decorated, the staff and their customer service were just soooo beyond expectations, very willing to help and make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. The hotel has a sauna, a gym and a garden to enjoy a couple of cocktails :-) We would like to recognise Jana Bradácová (one of the receptionists) for her loveliness, friendliness and availability. She was just amazing, I work in customer service and I can honestly and easily say "oh my god I have never received such friendly and perfect customer service!" She was always very happy to oblige, smiling, guide us and with a customer focused attitude which was greatly appreciated !! We highly recommend that hotel if you're staying in Prague ! Just AMAZING !!! Thank you Jana for all you did for us ! Merzek and Guillaume from Paris

The Josef is located in a peaceful, rather charming part of Prague (the main centre is soooo commercial these days) and our stay here was one of the best things about the city.

Breakfast was great, the hotel staff friendly and efficient. This is a great base for an exploration of Prague.

Special mention for the chic little poster shop over the road.
