The hotel was very good for our needs, and I would recommend it although I would make note of some disadvantages/risks, that if you should simply know in advance. Other then those disadvantages, the room was nice, very clean, bathroom was spacious and without any hot water problems (on mornings wait 1-2 minutes but that's it), very nice, relaxing room for breakfasts and the buffet itself included all necessities (hot and cold breakfast food). It is also one tram stop from main prague train station (trams 9, 26 and 5) making it easy to reach when coming or exiting the city. Tram 9 itself is extremly useful when going in and out of the inner old city. Zizkov, the neighberhood, is very cool, monmartre-esque, with places to go and extremly close by restaurants and supermarkets to stock up cheaply (especially we recommend the sklep restaurant near by and even the "yes burger" for faster, cheaper, to-go lunches). People in the hotel were very pleasent.
Some rooms may be noisy, especially the ones facing the streets. That in itself would not be such a problem if the rooms had A/C (only heating). This is why I would not recommend this hotel in the summertime. We were in early june and it was basically ok but we kept at least one window open. Even in the patio section of the hotel you may hear street sounds (depending on your room orientation), but for the most part it wasn't too bad, and you always have ear plugs just in case your sleep is light.
The main things to note are the windows, which need to be kept open sometimes if it's too hot. In the patio section of the hotel they open to the terrace which is also the corridor. This will be a problem if early neighbours decide to talk loudly in there or, as happened to us once, smoke...
one more mention - the bathtub does not have a divider/curtain, so you may get a wet room after showering in standing position - but that's mainly due to me prefering showers over bathtubs.
free internet - by the way - available only in the lobby
anyway - if you don't care too much about the windows thing, or willing to take the risk - it's a recommended hotel at all times. If not, I would recommend it only when in cold weather.
