After an extensive research project for hotels in and around Prague, we chose the Akcent hotel. Our daughter was studying abroad the fall 2011 semester, and we were visiting her to time the the end of school.
To be honest, we chose Akcent not for the amenities, but for a balance of price (low) and location to public transportation. The first time, anyway. We stayed there 3 nights on the front of our trip, then traveled Germany for 4 days, with a loose plan to come back to Prague for the final 2 days. We had our rooms in Prague booked at the Akcent as well, but would have had no problem cancelling those rooms if we didn't like it.
Not only did we keep our rooms for the second stay, we came back to Prague a day early. We simply were more comfortabel in Prague than Germany, and the Akcent was part of that comfort. The room was spacious, clean, fantastic assistance by front desk staff. The breakfast was excellent, different than the hot breakfasts available in U.S. hotels, but authentic and real food. I'll take that any day over the fake eggs in most U.S. hotels.
Do yourself a favor if you go to Prague. Try the Akcent. It's a hotel not trying to be anything different. It's easy.....it's convenient....and the price is good. Wireless didn't connect for us in either room.....we got an etherenet cable from the front desk otr carried our laptop to the bar and connected fine. Not an issue.
