I stayed here from April 6th - April 9th with a Gate 1 Travel tour. Having never been to Prague, I was a little nervous about seeing other reviews mentioning that the hotel was a little bit on the outskirts of the city.
However, we quickly forgot all about the location when we entered the hotel. It was clean, modern and downright fun -- a concept that more hotels would do well to employ! The sprawling lobby featured a bar that doubled as the reception desk, an open plan restaurant, a fireplace, a pool table, computers, and (my favorite) a leather sofa filled lobby. The rooms were great as well -- very clean and modern, and also quite spacious by European standards.
The metro and tram stops couldn't be any easier to find. We mainly used the tram for travel; the ride into the center of Prague was less than ten minutes, and the trams ran very frequently. The neighborhood that the hotel was in felt a little deserted at night -- I don't know how comfortable I would feel walking around on my own, but there were plenty of mini marts and a few seedy looking bars that gave us the comfort of seeing other people on the streets.
Also -- you are very close to paths along the Danube, which I used for some relaxing early morning runs around Prague!
We didn't eat at the restaurant, but we definitely hit up the massive (included) breakfast buffet every morning. I would go back just for that!
I can't comment on the pricing as we were sent here as part of a package deal, but I'm guessing it's probably lower priced than similar properties closer to the touristy parts of Prague. Highly recommended!
