We stayed two nights in the Botel Albatros. We had a room right at water level on the river side, so we could see the boats going by and fall asleep to the sound of seagulls.
The room was pretty basic but very clean and comfortable. The mattresses were fantastic, like sleeping in a cloud. Of course, a day's walking probably helped, but I usually have trouble sleeping because of back problems, and I slept like a baby all night!
The buffet breakfast had just about everything you could imagine, including a delicious home-made soup made freshly that day, sausages, hot and cold cereals, breads, yoghurt, fruit salad, cheese, cold cuts, coffee, tea, juice. A great start to the day. They also have a restaurant and a bar, which we didn't try.
When we first arrived the receptionist was gruff and businesslike, and we felt like we were back in Communist Czechoslovakia! But after a while she warmed up a bit. The rest of the staff were very friendly.
They also have a room where you can store your luggage for free, even after you've checked out. This was great for us as we didn't have to carry everything around for our last day in Prague.
Oh, I almost forgot this: We asked the receptionist which bus to take to the city center. She answered "This IS the city center!" Ha! In fact, you have to walk a good 15 minutes to get to the main tourist areas.
Overall a very nice and comfortable hotel.
