Vintage Design Hotel Sax

Reviewed 15 June 2010

This hotel is funky, bright, comfortable and fun. We were traveling with our 3 year old daughter and had a family room on the 3rd floor. A big comfy bed for us and a single for her. Our room was big and spacious with amenities to make us comfortable. Including a toy box full of toys for the kiddo. Nice touch! We also gratefully appreciated the air conditioning unit. The free computer in the room was also nice even though we did not use it. The free wi-fi made us happy.

The negatives were that our room could have been cleaner. The carpet was a bit funky... and not in the retro Sax way. They need to clean the cobwebs off the ceiling. There was also no towel bar in the toilet even though there was a sink. To dry your hands, you had to walk across the room to bath and get a towel. Our "balcony" was about a foot wide and the view was the sky light of the hotel. It was blazing hot so we didn't really wish to be out there anyway.

We did not spend the 15 Euros on breakfast as the person who explained breakfast too us explained we had to pre-order and it looked like bread and jam. For 15 Euros, we thought we could do better.

At the end of the day we really enjoyed the hotel. The location was perfect. Within in 15 minutes, you could be at the Castle or in the market square. Lots of good restaurants in the area.

i absolutely loved this hotel, it's design, style, facilities, breakfast, a tiny terrace with an absolutely gorgeous view, however one incident really disturbed me. i found the hotel the last minute in the internet, because the hotel i booked before departure to prague canceled my reservation for no reason.

so i checked in, left my details including bank card details at the reception, my things in the room, and went for a walk. after coming back really late to the hotel i realized that my door key card was blocked, so i couldn't get in to the room.

it was a great surprise and embarrassment to learn that the receptionist has blocked the room door so that i would need to go to the reception and ask to unlock it, because she tried to charge my card in advance and the card (which is a golden mastercard) was not approved.

i would prefer her to leave a message asking me to come to the reception in the morning to sort it out, and not to have discussions in the middle of the night after a tiring travel and full day walk.

We have been traveling all over the world and seen many hotels from very simple to the higher standard. But Hotel SAX was a different experience! We really loved the ambiance of the vintage furniture and all the details. It almost felt surrealistic. Just a great hotel to stay. Not only because of all the fun stuff of the 50th, 60th etc. But also because of the staff that was very helpful, friendly and kind. We appreciated the service of the headlines at breakfast and the free afternoon tea /coffee/wine with cakes. Even the background music was in style. We just loved it. A great place to stay for young, trendy, but also older people. Leave your laptop/notebook at home. Because for this is also been taken care of.
Is there not any point of critic? No, not really. May be that they say to all of the guest: ‘We have upgraded your room…’ Because we have the impression this was not really the case, it seems like a standard room. Which was good enough. Would I recommend this hotel? YES! Go for it. You won’t regret it.

Sax hotel is funny, cozy and really lovely place to stay in Prague. Situated in very quite area near the American embassy which creates the extra safety since the two policeman stop and check every single passing car! It will take you 3 minutes to get to Prazhsky grad and about 7 minutes to the Charles bridge. There are several good restaurants in the neighborhood as well.

We chose a design suit for our short getaway in Prague – lots of space and really stylish design. The only thing I can fault the hotel is the muddy carpet – everything else was fine. By choosing this property you have to understand that you’re going to a vintage hotel and things are a bit aged, but this it meant to create the atmosphere and it does! Free wifi was a bliss, and there’s a laptop in the room in case you forgot yours.

Breakfast was fine – good choice of food – ham, cheese, pastries, fruits, yoghurts, breads, corn flakes, and eggs cooked to your liking for extra price. Try the 5 o’clock tea with homemade cakes to die for which is included in a room price!

The best thing about the hotel is its atmosphere of being in the 60th in a good company, which is a great merit of stuff as well, who is extremely friendly and helpful. If it weren’t for small outdated details (or if they didn’t flare that much) it would deserve the 5 star rating in my personal list.

I came to Prague for the first time this week and stayed at the Hotel Sax. Overall, I had a wonderful experience. The staff were very helpful, the rooms were comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast was very good. The hotel manager Ayman, in particular was incredibly helpful, warm, and inviting. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Prague, I definitely plan on staying there when I visit next!

The staff are extremely hospitable, accommodating, trusting and friendly. From arrival you are treated as family and not like a client: you are offered a drink while you complete the form with passport details and all. Most hotels will make you do this while standing. Rooms are beautifully designed and clean. Breakfast is superb and there is afternoon 'tea' with freshly baked cakes. The Spa and sauna experience was simply exquisite. Go see for yourself!!

This hotel provided an excellent service and went way beyond the call of duty when flights were cancelled because of the volcano. They were extremely helpful and reassuring. The hotel is bright and airy. The rooms are modern, comfortable and well designed.. Having stayed there in the past I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel. It is beautifully designed and immaculately maintained. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel has its own DVD colIection. It is within easy walking distance of the Castle and King Charles Bridge. I look forward to staying again next time I return to Prague.
