The hotel is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, and fits perfectly to the surrounding buildings. We got a very clean and spacious room (207) with a nice view to the winter garden (which wasn't opened at the time, unfortunately!), but with no wi-fi signal. Nonetheless, we enjoyed being awakened by birds and wind, instead of traffic and sirens ;) Our only complaints (besides the wi-fi signal, that varies from room to room) would be that we had to wait for hot water (sometimes for more then 10 minutes!) to shower properly and that the fridge was very warm and you can't rely on cooling anything down.
Hotel Popelka is five minutes walk from the tram station and it'll take you no more then 15 minutes to get to the city centre. If you get up early enough, food that you find at the buffet breakfast will be enough to last you untill late afternoon (fried, boiled and scrambled eggs; bacon; at least 5 different cereals; 2-3 different salami and cheese; sponge cakes; fresh or canned fruit; milk, yoghurt, coffee, tea...). Also - don't use the hotel taxi, regardless of their friendly recommendation - we had to wait for more then 30 minutes for the car to come, it turns out that it's not taxi at all (the guy obviously has a deal with the hotel and drives people around in a hired car, speaks almost no English) and the price is fixed - you'll pay 350 Korunas no matter the address, distance, etc.
The staff was very friendly and helpful and we'll definitely come again!
