Hotel Seifert is situated in Zizkov, a district of Prague that seems a little run-down at first glance. Appearances can be deceptive, however; it's a actually a great area for pubs, ethnic restaurants and vintage shops. There is also far less of a tourist crush than you'll find in Stare Mesto or Mala Strana and, consequently, the accommodation options tend to more competitvely priced. The Seifert is certainly one of the best of the bunch.
The reception staff are very friendly and all speak good English. The rooms and communal areas of the hotel are kept clean. Rooms are basic but comfortable, with flatscreen TVs, minibars, tea/coffee making facilities, safes and antiquated ceiling fans.
If there's one area that mid-range and budget hotels in Prague often fall down, it's breakfast. However, breakfast at the Seifert is great, with a wide choice of fruits, pastries, yoghurts, bread and hot options including scrambled eggs and either bacon or sausage, depending on the day.
Finally, I don't really understand why some reviewers are under the impression that you have to catch a bus or tram or take a long walk in order to reach the heart of Prague. From the front entrance of the hotel you can be at Wenceslas Square in about 15 minutes, simply by turning left, walking down Husitska and past the main train station on Opletalova.
All in all, highly recommended.More
