I stayed for a couple of nights in this hotel in May 2011. It was my first time staying in Boat hotel and I really loved the experience. It was wonderful to wake up and see the river flowing just outside your window and the views of the bridge and buildings and churches on the other side of the river are really nice. If one likes rivers / water and staying in a different type of accomodation - this is really the place to stay in Prague. On my part I was delighted.
Location: very good. It is of course on the river. It is close to public transportation (metro and tram) but if one does not mind to walk for 15-20 minutes by the river, one would easily arrive in town center by foot. The area is quiet and beautiful. It was nice to walk around and there are also many cafes, restaurants and a big shopping mall 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
Rooms: they are standard boat cabis which meants not very large. I stayed alone in the room, so there was definitely enough space. However, even for two people it is ok to sleep there.
Breakfast: was my favourite part. The restaurant is on the top terrace with beautiful views of Prague. The choices are good and varied and the atmosphere in the dining room is very cheerful and cozy. The decorations are in "marine theme" and are very nicely done.
The restaurant seems popular with local businessmen for lunch / dinner. I ate there lunch which, though on a bit expensive side for Prague, was very very good quality. When I later moved to another hotel for corporate event I was attending, I still came back to this restaurant with my colleagues for lunch as I thought both food and ambiance were lovely and I wanted them to experience it.
Staff was nice and friendly; always greeting you and smiling.
My only little complaint was that there was no wi fi in the rooms, only in the hotel lobby. However, there were comfy arm-chairs and sofa there, and it was ok to stay for a while using their free wi fi.
Overall, I would definitely look this hotel up next time I am in Prague; as I had a very comfortable, pleasant and quite unique stay :).
