We booked the PAV for a three night stay between Xmas & New Year on the strength of the Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed in their accuracy. We can only reiterate that it is an ideal hotel for a short break.
Having heard of the reputation of Prague's taxi drivers, we used the Hotel's taxi transfer system to & from the airport which was simply added to our bill . This saved us either bargaining for a taxi outside ,or using public transport which would have been cheaper but involving bus, tube & a walk , not ideal with with cases.
The hotel is clean, our 4th floor room was a good size , well decorated & relatively quiet, bearing in mind its proximity to the the beer hall next door.The staff spoke good english (as did most people in Prague) , just as well as my grasp of Czech is minimal .
It is in a good position for 15 minutes walking to most of the main sights in central Prague such as the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. The castle is a bit further away over Charles Bridge but still only 30 minutes stroll. There is a tram stop just round the corner from the hotel and the Metro underground about 5 minutes away for those wanting to rest their feet.
Whilst the hotel doesn't serve evening meals, the lobby bar was great for a hot chocolate after retiring from the freezing temperatures , and an alcoholic nightcap.We found enough places to eat close to the hotel as well as near the main tourist areas ( these were generally more expensive) . We found that the Czech food was very solid & substantial - the dumplings in particular.
The only down side we found in the hotel was that there was a bit of pressure for tables in the breakfast hall around 9am when everyone seemed to want to eat at the same time. However some people simply took their food into the adjacent lobby bar as an overspill area . We found that quality & variety of the breakfast buffet was fine , even close to the 10am deadline .
Prague is a beautiful city, but was cold enough to make my eyes water! Wrap up well & fortify yourself with the hot wine on sale on the streets & you will more than survive !!
