“Surprise in Prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2009

Our last visit to Prague was 15 years ago. We had a bad experience with an expensive hotel. We were hoping that this time it will be better since the Sax was no 5 on TripAdvisor's list of hotels in Prague. It was a surprise. The room was perfect, clean, on an inner, covered, courtyard. The room was bright and quiet. The service was excellent. Breakfast had a wide selection to satisfy most tastes. The location was between the American embassy and the castle, a 10 minutes walk from the Charles bridge and the metro.
We were a bit concerned that the 1970s design will be a bit kitsch, but actually it was very well done, very aesthetic with many original pieces.
We recommend this hotel to people who love Prague and art.

the design hotel sax is located in one of the most beautiful and oldest districts in praha. it's only a fiveminutewalk to the charles' bridge and the city center. the rooms are very nice and big, equipped with fridge, tv, dvd, laptop,... ANYTHING! the whole hotel is in vintage style, each floor got his own decade and the rooms are completly beautiful and unique. the restaurant is great, the management very friendly and the parkingplace is only 500 meters away.

We stayed here for 5 nights in March. The hotel arranged a taxi to and from the airport for us for about 30 euro per way (handier than trying to get a taxi ourselves though).

The hotel is situated very near Prague castle and Charles Bridge, yet it's far enough off the tourist trail that it was pretty quiet. There was some noise from the Jazz cafe across the road, this was only on a Friday night.

The style of the hotel is great, lots of funky vintage furniture from designers like Eames and Aarnio Eero and they've complemented that with lots of white, rounded surfaces, retro wallpaper, etc.

Although they don't seem to do lunch or evening meals, breakfast was very good. Lots of pastries, muesli, etc as well as cooked breakfast and loads of coffee. We didn't have any of the 5 o'clock tea as we were never about for it, so I can't comment on that.

The room was pretty good, though we found it very warm the night we arrived (the heater had been on for a while). It was very clean and the service was very good.

We'll definitely stay here again.

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor when planning a break with my partner and family. I thought it looked interesting and fun.
On arrival - wow. It's small, and in the charming area of Mala Strana. Loads to see and do, but without the overwhelming tourist crush of the Old Town. The street is quiet and has a few nice bars and restaurants, and you are five minutes' walk from Charles Bridge.
The rooms are comfortable and stylish. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The breakfasts had all of us cooing - a great buffet selection and then freshly made hot foods - French toast, eggs, crepes and so on.
And don't miss afternoon tea - the hotel has no bar, but between 4pm and 6pm each day they serve a range of tea, coffee and cakes, plus local wines.
When I go back to Prague, I'd stay here again and recommend to anyone.

We stayed for the weekend in Prague and chose the Design Hotel, which is perfectly located in a quiet area just next to the Prague Castle and the US Embassy. Everything as walkable and public transport also in reach. A perfect place to start the Prague experience.

The hotel itself is wonderfully designed and straight 70's and is a completely different world to the historic Prague outside. It feels like being on another planet. Service is great, Breakfast just perfect as well as the complimentary 4-6pm afternoon tea service.

The only thing to consider is that it might get noisy if you get a room facing the inside "hall" of the hotel as the kitchen and breakfast preparation in the morning might wake you up early.

My wife and I hit tripadvisor to plan our fist trip to Prague, and saw the Design Hotel Sax was well-situated and had earned high marks. Based on this we booked one of the Deluxe rooms, and we were not disappointed. The room we got (32) had a nice view of the Lower Town's rooftops and glimpses of the castle. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and we enjoyed the afternoon tea provided by the hotel. We stuck with the complimentary breakfast bar, which drew a bit of eye-rolling--I guess we were supposed to order a hot breakfast but our goal was to maximize our pastry intake.

Wireless LAN and a laptop came with our room--we didn't know about the laptop so that was a pleasant surprise.

Everyone bent over backward to make us feel comfortable, and we greatly enjoyed our stay at the Sax.
