“Coool”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

This is a lovely hotel. It is small and friendly and is a feast for the eyes. It is individually styled and a long way from a corporate hotel. Your room is equipped with safe, robes, slippers, tv, dvd player, and laptop. You get the feeling that the owners really care about the experience of the visitor. Buffet breakfast is very good and you can choose from a freshly cooked hot menu. There is also complementary afternoon tea available between 4pm and 6pm. The location is ideal, it is in the Lesser Town only a short walk to Charles Bridge or the Castle. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby that stay open late. It is a very busy city but the Hotel is tucked away in a delightful quiet street.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the standard rooms and it suited us fine. The bathroom was fab

My suite was fairly spacious, but there was a mildewy or wet carpet smell that was quite strong at times in both the bathroom & living room. The bed was ok, but not especially comfortable. Breakfast options were good considering the meal was complimentary. The gym was useless. I had a few minor issues (my safe lost power, one of the TV remotes did not work, internet service was spotty) but overall I was satisfied with my experience at Sax. Its location & value for money are quite good, but I am surprised that this hotel is rated one of the very best in all of Prague.

Dear Guest, I would like to thank you for feedback. Unfortunatelly, sometimes the little things come together, resulting in unpleasant experience, but I hope that your good memories overwhelm the bad ones. We took all your remarks seriously and that room was inspected and everything is fixed now. We had to repair the ventilation system in the bathroom - that is why the air was so wet. We would still be very glad if you visit us again in the future and give it a second try.
With Kind Regards,

We stayed at the beautiful hotel sax for our honeymoon back in June. We had impeccable service from the moment we stepped into the hotel, the receptionists and staff were very friendly. Its located in a quieter part of town, but still easy walking distance to all site seeing spots. Right next door is an electric bike hire shop - we hired one of these for a day and covered all the sites very quickly (in a very fun way) - the guy from the shop even took us for a bit of a tour for the first half hour of our ride to show us some of the close by sites (Castle, Lower Castle district and Parks). The hotel rooms are very spacious, clean and modern (in a retro kind of way), they also have a whole level dedicated to the "C's" which was awesome - if you grew up in Europe in the 70's & 80's you'd know what they are! And lastly, the hotel has free afternoon tea, perfect way to relax in-between touristy things. All in all, fantastic service, great hotel and a very memorable stay for us! We will definitely be back.

Absolutely fantastic hotel in fab location very near to Prague Castle. Cannot recommend this hotel enough, the staff were very helpful and spoke fluent english, the room was huge, more like an apartment than a twin room! We had free afternoon tea included in our package, as well as the breakfast. All food was cooked lovely and everything was fresh and laid out beautifully. The staff were great and helped us on our last day by storing our luggage all day and we could purchase our transport tickets from the hotel.

Tips - 1) Turn left out of hotel, up the steps and carry on straight up that road and follow round to the right. this steep road takes you to Prague Castle and saves you going up all the steps which we did the first time!
2) Take the road in front of the hotel (that goes down the side of Hotel Constant) and follow this all the way to the end, then cross over and turn left to the end of that road - you are then in the main square, where Starbucks and tram stops (number 20) are. If you turn to the right and keep going (past Mcdonalds), you will get to Charles Bridge - all about a 5 - 10 minutes max walk from the hotel! Keep going over the bridge and keep going straight and this takes you into the old town main square where the Astronomical clock etc are.
3) From the airport - do not get conned into taking taxis, use the transport ticket office and take the 119 Bus to the city and the tram number 20 to the main square - all for only 32 czech korona!
4) Lastly DO NOT take EUROS, they only want Czech Korona.

Fantastic, romantic, city with loads to do, loved it

we booked this hotel after reading the reviews on trip advisor- all the good ones are spot on.
We booked online direct with the hotel and got 3 nights for the price of 2 in a suite- what a room. We couldn't fault anything about the hotel- location fantastic, breakfast great, staff also excellent. We'll definitely return to this hotel next time this beautiful city. What a place to spend my 40th birthday!!

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and found everything to a very high standard. We stayed in room 18 which was lovely. The room was spacious, even with twin beds and fitted out with everything you need and more! Flat screen TV, DVD player, dressing gowns, hairdryer etc. A great perk was the use of the laptop with free internet access in the room. I was concerned that it might be noisy as the window overlooked the corridor (sounds strange but not at all!) but it wasn't at all and we slept incredibly well.

The staff were attentive and friendly and always willing to answer any of our questions.

There was a vast selection laid out for the buffet style breakfast and in addition, you could order hot food. I sampled something different each morning and couldn't find fault anywhere. The breakfast was available til 11am and remained plentiful until then.

The value of the hotel was excellent for us as we had a special offer where the 3rd night was free. Had we paid for the 3 nights, it would be quite pricey but still worth it.

The location of the hotel is great too. In a quiet street but still within 5-10 mins walk of both Charles Bridge and the castle.

I stayed here with my Mum and both of us would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Prague.

A belated review from April 2011 but I felt I should recommend this hotel to others. It is very good value, all the rooms are very individual and decorated throughout with a modern art feel - it must have taken a long time to collect all the items of decor. Service was great and the breakfast was lovely. Well worth a visit!
