We loved our stay here! We got a large room on the second floor. It was almost like a suite as there were two rooms: a small room with twin bed and dining table and larger room with king bed and two arm chairs. We had a nice view of the Charles Bridge. The room was very clean and decorated with an old-world feel. While I'm partial to modern decor, the old-world feel seemed appropriate. The bathroom was quite large as well, and the shower had great water pressure.

The hotel is located on the quiet side of the bridge, an easy 10 min walk to the touristy part of town. I liked being on the quiet side of town because it seemed more relaxing and private. The staff was very helpful and approachable. The day guy spent 10 minutes showing me the map on the wall and explaining interesting walking routes! Very nice of him!! We walked up to the castle on his recommendation. He said it was an easy 15 min walk, but it took us like 25 mins because it was a steep walk! ha! But we def enjoyed the sites along the way.

The breakfast was great! I filled up on fruit and pastries, while the server was making our coffees. As she delivered them, she asked if we wanted eggs. I wish I had waited b/c my husband got them and they were so good! Perfectly cooked scrambled eggs with some sliced veggies on the side. We left early on the second day and they left us to-go breakfast in our room the night before!! What an amazingly nice touch!! We each got a bottle of water, two sandwiches, a snickers bar and a piece of fruit. This was seriously going above and beyond in my opinion!! We were so thrilled to have a convenient meal to eat on the train that morning!

I hope I am lucky enough to return to Prague and stay here again in the future!!

Location is perfect, breakfast was simple but adequate and nice. Room was spacious and clean and neat. Checkin was no problems - entrance to the hotel is in the middle door where the eating tables are located. We would definitely recommend this hotel - we kept the windows open as there was no ac or fan and it was a little noisy at night but all in all a very nice small quiet hotel.

Room Tip: We where in room 9 third floor - good for 2ad and 2 kids- have to take luggage up stairs. Make sure...

Just a few steps away from the Charles Bridge, this lovely restaurant had a good value fixed price lunch of potato soup and omelette for 160 Czech Crowns (just over £5). The waiter was a bit forgetful but quickly recovered himself and we had a pleasant time here. It's worth going again if the prices remain this good.

Perfect location, at 20 meters from Charles Bridge, nearby the park and the river. Our room was very luminous and quite big, clean and complete of everything. Restaurants everywhere in the neighborhood. For those who care: wi-fi connection is not that good in the rooms.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your stay with us in March. I am delighted that you enjoyed especially the locality and our luminous and spacious rooms. The wi-fi connection is influenced by the massive walls of the historic building, we are trying our best to strengthen it.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel.

With warmest wishes,

We go here at least once every time we visit Prague. Never disappointed. It's so close to the Charles Bridge you can enjoy the view in summer time. In winter, it's a cozy little place with great service. Good selection of Czech and International dishes.

Second time we have stayed here. Primarily for the location. Staff friendly and breakfast is what you eould expect. Rooms seem to have been refurbished but not sure. Room 3 spacious enough. Bathroom a bit small, no mirror in room and the street light shines in the room illuminating it through the night. . Asked for extra pillows but never got them. Will sort out taxis for you. Never ate there except for breakfast

Dear Guest,

Thank you for posting your opinion about our hotel. I´m very glad to hear you were satisfied with the hotel location and our staff. You are right, we are continuously renovating the rooms - there are new satellite LCD TV´s, furniture and decorations. I truly apologise for any inconveniences you may have with the street light - we´ll think about buying new curtains that don't leak as much light for the room no.3. I´m surprised you didn´t get your extra pillow, it must have been an oversight, our staff is normaly extremly friendly and helpful.

We look forward to welcoming you at our hotel for the third time.

Sincerely,

Zuzana Eislerová

Am writing this review whilst still being here, on arrival we were extremly impressed by the rooms in this beautiful building, the shear size was impressive, have stayed at more expensive hotels with much smaller rooms than the bathroom this one has!!!!! A full sized shower and a bath that just begs to be used, the staff extremly friendly, english speaking and nothing too much trouble, when late for breakfast one morning I enquired if there were any more eggs, a lesser hotel would have said no yet here I was brought my own plate of eggs, the quiet extra mile that makes a break, as for location we couldnt ask for any more, 100 meters off Charles bridge so away enough from the hustle bustle but a tiny walk to be in the thick of all the action, a beautiful city is prague and upon our return when ever that may be then this hotel will be the very top of my list to book again!!!!
