By there nature a review can only be based on your own experience, well I have to say our stay at the Atos Hotel was a experience. I am sure there are many rooms in the hotel that are more than satisfactory and the reviews I have read will back this up, but my advice to anyone staying at this hotel is as follows.
Should you hear the words 701 or 702 when they offer you a room immediately ask if there is another room available. If they say sorry but they are the only rooms you may as well pick a bench in the busiest subway station in Prague and lay your head there, as you will get more sleep there than in these rooms.
When we booked in they said we where in room 702, I had read other reviews that said the room at the top where a bit small so 700 I thought it may be one of these rooms, how mistaken I was.
The rooms 701 and 702 are in the basement, this I found out when the desk said “don't take the lift just walk down the stairs” well as we walked into the room we thought, not bad, as we have a policy that the room is not the thing, as it is a place to rest when we get back from seeing the sites.
So off we went into Prague.
When we returned. Both excited and exhausted from the wonderful city of Prague we decided to turn in and get some rest.
At this point we did not know that directly above the room in the hotel bar and next door to the rooms is the breakfast dining room.
It all starts at about 6:45 am when the cleaner starts to vacuum the bar above your head and the kitchen staff start the set out the breakfast for the rest of the hotel. Then the guests start to drift down for breakfast full of morning vitality. As we are early risers ourself so we thought well join the crowd, breakfast is good so fed and watered we set off again to the city.
Returning again that evening we ate and went to bed only to be woken up at 12:45 am by the revellers returning from the Prague clubs and bars that wanted to carry on the party directly above our head. When we mentioned the noise the next day we where told “did you ring reception and complain”. Well as the reception is in the same room as the hotel bar it was my impression that the person on reception must know how much noise was coming from the bar as they where serving the beer to then.
It is I am sure a very good hotel and is well placed but if you are offered the two rooms be expecting problems.
