The booking was made by our rail tour company and I had checked both Tripadvisor and the hotel website to see what amenities it had and decided that,although small, it was in a great location, ie in the lesser town near the Charles bridge. Unfortunately the website and Tripadvisor do not give the correct information. There is no bar, no restaurant, no ice machines etc. The rooms are a good size, well furnished with good AC, kettle and minibar. Double bed is two singles with comfortable, if soft, mattresses. The bathroom we had was excellent, good sized tub with shower attachment. Internet via wifi free and good bandwidth.
Breakfast average but is in the basement. The decor is drab, nothing like the rooms and reception areas, it smelt damp and was not somewhere I wanted to linger.
Staff all pleasant and helpful.
I would not have chosen this hotel if the website and Tripadvisor had been accurate. If you want a 4* hotel go somewhere else.
