This hotel was chosen for me by business associates who had stayed there previously. I was impressed with their choice, because although I was on a business trip, I chose to stay for two additional nights at my own expense.
It feels like a decent modern Spanish hotel, rather than central European, and reminded me of a hotel in Barcelona. The staff were very welcoming and did their very best to make my stay a pleasure. I also found their standard of English to be very high. I had an executive room on the 7th floor which was spacious and comfortable. Despite looking east with an amazing view of central and southern Prague, the blackout curtains prevented me from being woken early in the morning. I had a very good night's sleep every night. I had to unplug the minibar at night but everything was still cold in the morning. The television channels covered all the major international channels - BBC World, CNN, TV5 etc. The wireless internet also worked perfectly without any annoying charges or authentication process which is always cumbersome on a smartphone. The safe was just big enough for my 15.4" laptop. The water pressure was very good but the shower head seemed to reduce it a lot; this could be improved with little expense. The hotel is on the boundary of a modern business district and a grotty run-down industrial area, but you don't have to walk far either to the metro or to a sizeable shopping centre with a large Tesco which more resembles a French Carrefour hypermarket. I would stay here again, or possibly try one of the other Barcelo hotels in Prague in the hope that their standard would be equally as high.
