Converted and remodeled "palace". Rooms must be one of a kind and large, comfortable, contemporary, clean and modern bathroom, kitchenette with a few odd angles and spaces due to the conversion. Excellent value in shoulder season. Small spaces hide guests, never heard any noise and only saw two other families in two days despite reported full occupancy. Very quiet overall, including staff. Staff stays in the background except when needed, quiet. Perfect location along riverfront, views of castle, clear and broad views of neighborhood from low rise rooms. Several 3 and 4 (out of five) Star restaurants with good to excellent reasonably priced food within one block. Hotel does not have restaurant but one is not needed. Charles Bridge within a block and historic center within three blocks. Surrounding neighborhoods are mix of residential and retail...interesting, comfortable. Everything within walking distance including open markets, department stores, supermarket. Primarily because of its overarching character, consistent with the character of the city overall, I would rank it in the top 5% of all the hotels I've stayed at in 40 years of travel.
