Arrived on Friday afternoon, but there was a technical problem with the rood, no problem, we left our baggage and went walkabout. Came back after a few hours (Always time goes quickly when you are having fun) and the receptionist helped us check in. We recieved all the info we required about he hotel (breakfast, luch, dinner etc).
We had room number 8, and what a shock! came into a hallway, to the left a bathroom with bath and shower and lots of toiletries, perfect, infront of us was the main room, about 30 square meters in size and tastfully designed. The furniature was of an older style and maybe a bit ragity but it all added to the atmosphere. On the othe side of the room we had a smal balcony (3 meters squared) where we could look down on the inner courtyard.
The room had 2 views, first towards Caharles Bridge, bit hard to see due to the trees, and towards Na Kampa Park and the squae infront of the entrance to the park. Everything perfect.
Day 2: Breakfast, What was missing? nothing, Scrambled eggs, poached eggs, sausages, bacon (Chrispy), porridge, 4 types of cheese, ham, liver paté, Fruit, yoghurt in different variations, Doughnuts, crossants, 6 types of bread from a white Pain riche to a dark bread or one full of seeds. The atmosphere was nice, in a cellar vault with an arched roof and open fire. The staff were very helpful but not overbearing.
Day 3: breakfast the same as the day earlier. Time to check out, 11.00, fixed print-out of boarding cards to flight home at no cost.
General impressions: The hotel was clean and well keep. The staff we met (Receptionist, Night porter, breakfast cook and cleaner) were all very helpful and happy.
The only thing which we found fault with was a chip out of the enamel in the bath tub and a bit of damage on the doorpost of the bathroom, and maybe the bed was a bit hard for some. otherwise everything was perfect.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone, it is not exactly a budget hotel, prices are about £70-90 per night, but well worth it.
