Not quite on the infamous Wenceslas Square, but just two minutes' walk away, this hotel is a perfect sightseeing base. A typical city hotel with a rather business-like air, it nevertheless boasts friendly staff and good service - all with a smile. Our twin-bedded room was a good size with a well-performing TV and air conditioning, tea-making facilities and a good room service. It was functional rather than lavish but with its spotless bathroom and general air of cleanliness, it prompts no complaints from me. One bonus facility is the free use of a computer and Wifi. I personally found the bar area a little too formal for me. This, combined with the typically high hotel drink prices, deterred us from making use of it. But top marks to the bar man who was on the ball at all times. We didn't make use of the spa area as all we wanted to do after a five-hour city trek each day was to chill out in the room. But after one particular long walk I was nearly tempted by one of the massages which seemed reasonably priced. The breakfast area was, again, quite formal, and although Champagne is a nice touch, an even nicer one would be to have a jolly chef around to make omelettes! Expect a more Germanic breakfast of cold meats, cheese, fruit, bread ( you can make toast) and a selection of cakes. As the title of this review says, the K & K Fenix did exactly what it says on the box - provide a good standard of conveniently situated accommodation four our four-day stay. So - I can't fault the hotel, but having got to know Prague a bit, I would say it is NOT crucial to be in the Wenceslas Square area with its tourist-trap restaurants and prices. Other areas of the city seemed to be more user-friendly and just as quaint. As with other reviewers, I feel sorry the Fenix, an obviously reputable hotel, has its sign over-shadowed by a 'dancing girls' neon sign and is surrounded by strip joints. I travelled with a female friend and because we returned to the hotel quite early each evening, we did not experience any hassling or awareness of what apparently seems to be a rather dodgy lot late at night! None of this detracts from the hotel and all it has to offer to both locals and visitors.
