I decided on Hotel Josef at the last minute and booked the day before I got on the train from Germany. When I got to the train station it was already 2130, I was exhausted and just wanted to eat and sleep. I set up a pickup through the hotel, but because of the late reservation I was unable to give them my arrival information, luckily I had a cell phone to call them and even though I was not on the list and their driver was about to go home...they still accomodated me! I was so grateful that I wasn't stranded having to take a taxi. (From what I hear, the taxis are not always that trust worthy in Prague!) The driver had a sign with my name on it (it was a town car) and we went on our way.
When I got to the hotel I was pleased to find out that the restaurant was open until 2300, so I ordered food after I checked in and went to my room. The food was delivered to me, which was great and I settled in for the night.
****It was new to me, but you had to put your room key in a slot by the door to work the lights**** I felt a little silly having to go downstairs and ask how to work them!
Hotel Josef is close to the Stare Mesto (town square) and I walked to the Jewish Quarter, Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and St Vitus Cathedral. The walk to the bridge is about 15 min, but to take in the scenery was great!
I would recommend the hotel to anyone, the train/airport transport was 250 Kc one way, about 10USD, it had free WiFi, a huge breakfast buffet and was close to everything. Also all the staff spoke wonderful English, as my Czech was not good at all!
