So this is was my solo trip to Prague, so was looking for nothing fancy and on a budget and booked this one cause it was a great deal on expedia. 44 euros for 2 nights.
The place is located in a district called Zizkov about 2 kms from Prague central station and about the same from Old Town Square from where all the major attractions of Prague start. And sinxe Prague is such a walking city this didn't bother me at all.
My first impression of the place was good... though it smelt a bit antiseptic (like a hospital). The room was nice and big and could easily accommodate 3 people, though I was just single.
But then the real issues started. On the first day I left the hotel at around 3 in the afternoon for sight seeing and when I came back realised that someone had been to my room. I first thought that it was housekeeping... but my bed was not made so was unsure. Then I realised that someone had used the toilet and had broken the flush. There was also a flashlight left in the toilet, looked like someone had tried to use it while repairing the flush.. all in all the flush did not work for the next 3 days inspite of having complained.
Also my room was facing the main road which has a tramline running across... and this can be quite noisy and disturbing at night evem for me who is a very sound sleeper.
Another thing... what is with the motion sensor lights in the bathroom. So if ur standing just brushing your teeth or scrubbing yourself or on the toilet seat... the lights in the bathroom would just go off as it would not sense enough motion.
Overall very mixed feelings about this place. Would I come here again... Definitely not with Family. Would I recommed it... Yes if u are on a budget and cant get a better deal. Maybe this was only my experience and you may have a better one.
