“Friendly staff, great price and uniquely designed hotel nestled in quiet area of Prague”
Reviewed 13 April 2011

We stayed 3 nights, with our 5 year old daughter, at this most welcoming hotel. The hotel is so much fun to explore with it's unique styling, for adults and children alike. Our family room on the 3rd floor featured Mickey Mouse pictures throughout the spacious living space. The colors are bright, fun and varied throughout the hotel.
We loved the fun designs at each turn, but the highlight of our stay was the staff. They were very generous with their advice and help, doting on our daughter and always cheerful.
The food was very good, and the coffee excellent. Be sure to enjoy the espresso machine in your room - yummy!
Finally, I am so glad we stayed in the quieter "Lesser Town" rather than the more tourist-filled Old Town. It was only a 5 minute walk to the Charles Bridge and a nice retreat after a day of sightseeing. There are many restaurants less than 5 minutes from the hotel.
Our only regret is that we did not stay longer.

Room Tip: Order room service for breakfast!

This funky hotel is in a great location and the staff is incredibly helpful. The staff is more than willing to go out of their way to help ensure your trip is as positive as possible. The breakfast they serve each morning is top notch! The decor of the rooms and lobby are so fun and whimsical. They even provide laptops in each room!

I would recommend this hotel to my friends and colleagues without hesitation. It's the prefect hotel!

Our trip was a business one. Returning to the hotel with its whimsical retro decor was a treat. The staff was very attentive and professional yet personable. A knowledgeable driver was always available. The dining room was perfect for breakfast and late afternoon tea. We were able to meet with business contacts there in a relaxed manner. The rooms were impeccable. We stayed on a few extra days for pleasure. The location is perfect being within a short stroll of the castle as well as the Charles Bridge. It is a perfect location for a tourist as well as one on business. I recommend the Sax highly.

Room Tip: Each one I saw was very nice.

PHENOMINAL breakfast
Mega comfy beds
Mega comfy pillows
Very very friendly and helpful staff
Extremely funky decor
Very very clean
Bathrobe & slippers....very nice touch
Windows easily open
Non-smoking policy = super sweet smelling hotel
Quiet location.
Great location.
Best (and cheapest and non-touristy) restaurants are a 1 or 2 minute strill from the hotel. We liked the ones that are sort of opposite the Absinthe Shop (green ice-cream cone above door). Best price for a bottle of local Bohemia Sekt (the local champagne - it is absolutely deliciious!)
Cowboys restaurant has fabulous sun terrace, and big tasty food.
Climb the tower at St. Vitus's Catherdral (inside Castle complex) for STUNNING views of the city. (Equivalent to views of Paris from Eiffel Tower)

Room Tip: Hot tea/coffee, water/ice 24/7 in coffee lounge

I think this hotel is very unique and it awakened in me beautiful memories of my childhood . I went around with my daughter and recocnised items we had when I was small.We did enjoy the breakfast because everything was homemade. Staff there is very kind and our attic room on the third floor was exceptional. Definitelly visit Sax on your way to Prague.

A small, cosy, extremely efficient hotel in the very center of a magic town. The staff is highly professional and extremely kind. Breakfast is gorgeous with so much choice and food of good quality. We would just avoid the music, or keep its volume a little bit less loud. In a place so musical, we would appreciate some czech classical pieces (Dvorak, Smetana, or so. but this is just small details. Rooms are quiet and full of light. Sleeping is guaranteed. We wish to recommend this hotel and will certainly choose it again for a future trip in the beautiful Praha.

I enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Sax, and particularly the attitude of the staff and attention to detail of the hotel exceeds most five star major brand hotels I've stayed at. Check-in was smooth and the receptionist was extremely attentive and professional. In general, I am absolutely pleased with the staff here. The hotel is in a fantastic area near Prague Castle, although taxi service to the hotel involves a police checkpoint as the hotel is a block away from the US Embassy. Interior decor/design is fantastic and very unique. It is a sight in itself. Breakfast includes one hot ready-to-order item, and there is also afternoon tea, which is mostly a repeat of breakfast ingredients.

There are a lot of good things in the rooms as well: umbrellas, DVDs to watch, slippers, etc. - this is a very thoughtful place. Room decor is very nice too, particularly the bathroom which is very well designed and kept impeccably clean. Again, the cleaning staff is very thoughtful as well.

However, I have some gripes. #1, the bed is too short. I'm not even 6' tall and my feet are hanging off the bed. Second, though I know I booked a room facing into the courtyard, the room is actually facing a hallway and therefore you have no privacy whatsoever if you keep your blinds open. It can also get quite loud if there are people passing in the hallway, as was frequently the case at night.

That said, I would definitely recommend this place: the price is very reasonable, the location is great, and, most of all, the people are absolute professionals and very friendly. It's a neat operation, but they have room for improvement.
