This was our 3rd return stay at the Iron Gate in Prague. We are pleased to say it lived up to all our expectations and we will certainly return again.
This was our first visit since suites were refurbished in 2012 and rooms have been freshly decorated with new contemporary quality furniture and fixtures.
Our room was on the ground floor with an outlook into and access from the quaint internal courtyard. The room did not have the decorative historic ceiling fresco paintings but it did have a lovely vaulted ceiling. This meant our room was lovely and quiet despite being in the heart of the city.
There was a separate living room with sofa, TV, mini bar, tea/coffee facilities, desk, drawers. The mini bar was well stocked and replenished daily. The bedroom was spacious with large comfortable bed with plentiful supply of pillows. A second large TV in the bedroom. A large solid wood wardrobe provided plenty of storage space and staff kindly provided additional coat hangers on request. The small safe was easy to use however it was not big enough to hold our tablet and cameras.
The bathroom was well appointed with a large walk in shower and useful lit mirror. Our previous rooms at Iron Gate had huge jacuzzi baths so we did miss that feature this time but the large shower was also good.
Our only slight criticism was the temperature of the room was a bit warm for our liking and it did make it a bit uncomfortable at night. We weren't able to open a window as we had two frosted glass patio doors. The heaters/temperature seemed to be controlled automatically so we would have preferred local control. This may not be an issue in summer when air conditioning is available.
The hotel and suite was spotlessly clean and the cleaning staff were very efficient. Staff at reception were very polite and helpful with any request.
The hotel lobby whilst small is very characterful and has some seating and access to a PC and printer for guests.
Breakfast was excellent with a good range of fruit, cereal, cooked food, breads and continental breakfast. We particularly enjoyed the wafer thin ham!
The location and character of this historic building are second to none - you really are two mins from old town square and you can stay in a building with real charm. There are countless bars, restaurants and shops around along with easy walking distance to most of the key historic sites.
Iron Gate is our favourite place to stay and we hope to be back soon!
