I've just returned from a four night stay at the Vintage Design Hotel Sax in Prague. It is without doubt the best boutique hotel I have ever stayed at!
The decor, staff and ambiance of the hotel is first class.
Upon arrival the first thing that strikes you is the decor, especially within the main atrium. The entire hotel has been designed to recreate the atmosphere of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, inspired by some of the most important designers of our time. The result is a hotel which has a nostalgic feel in an ultra modern environment.
My room was spacious, furnished in an equally retro style and included a mini bar, flat screen TV and DVD player.
Breakfast was generous and tasty with a buffet of breads, cereals and juices together with a hot breakfast prepared by the staff including pancakes and spicy sausages!
The location of the hotel is excellent, within the Mala Strana district of Prague. The area is very quiet, about a 10 minute walk to either Prague Castle or Charles Bridge and surrounded by good restaurants. I would especially recommend U Mecenase on Malostranske namesti 10, a very atmospheric restaurant which used to be frequented by a famous 17th Century executioner!
Finally, the staff of the hotel were extremely helpful and spoke very good English. They were always on hand to make sure my stay was as comfortable as possible.
Do not hesitate to stay at this gem of a hotel!
