We are ending our stay here at the Hotel Sax. This hotel has many great things to offer. The rooms are spacious and uniquely decorated. Each room has a laptop computer with free internet access. This has been an absolutely wonderful perk!! We didn't come across a lot of internet cafes so it has been fantastic to have unlimited internet usage right in our room. This is also one of the best all included breakfasts we have ever experienced. Every morning there was a nice selection of meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts and fruit plus the option to order order eggs, pancakes etc off a menu. Threr was also unlimited tea, coffee and juice. Also, the breakfast was served from 7am - 11am!
We have found the staff to be incredibly helpful and accomodating. Upon check-in we received a lot of local information from the staff at reception. All the staff we encountered were friendly, warm and welcoming. It was also a plus that everyone spoke english. Lastly, we really enjoyed the hotel location. It is just a ten minute walk over the Charles Bridge to Old Town square. Close enough to the sights but just far enough away to be quiet. The location also felt very safe. The American Embassy is just down the block so there are police standing guard at all times on the street that leads up to the hotel.
All that said we did have a few minor issues. Our room was very dark. There was only two small bedside lamps and one corner lamp. Not a big deal I realize but it did become slightly annoying when trying to read or use the computer.
Lastly, the shower was pretty awful. The tub was very high and it made it a little diffiuclt to get in and out . Also the shower head would spray everywhere. When the shower curtain was left in the tub it would clog the drain and we would step all over it but if left out it created a flood in the bathroom. These were just minor annoyances, not major concerns. Overall we had a lovely stay at the Design Hotel Sax.
