If you want to spend your whole time in Prague seeing the main tourist sights of Prague 1, Castle, Old Town etc. the location of this hotel may not be for you. However, if, like us, you want to spend some time exploring the proper "lived in" areas of Zizkov, Vinohrady and Holesovice and only be 10-15 mins into the centre this is a pretty perfect base (tram 11 goes straight to Holesovice in 10 mins, avoiding the city centre). The bars, restaurants and beer gardens (there's one directly opposite) of the area charge non-touristy prices for very decent food and beer. The hotel itself is excellent value for money. It doesn't offer 4 star luxury but is clean and comfortable and the reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and the air conditioning worked well. Our room overlooked the back of the hotel - far from a glorious view but nice and peaceful, didn't hear a thing overnight. Breakfast did the job - again if you expect a full western European breakfast for the price you're probably going to be disappointed, but this was a good continental spread, with hot options too (hot dog sausages, egg etc). Our major criticism would be that the safe in our room didn't work and they were unable to repair it during our stay - meaning we had to use the safe at reception (which apparently is a common problem). There is a fridge in the room, perfect for keeping your supplies from the Tesco across the road nice and cool! In summary, if you want a great value for money hotel and see some of the real Prague this a great base. If you only want to spend time in Prague 1 the trip in and out of town might mean there are better options, but the trip is easy enough.
