Unobtrusive, delightfully old world Prague; discounted dinner prices for guests; central European cooking, patio at the rear, cobbled streets, out of town somewhat, and none the worse for that - strolling dawdle along the river of 25 minutes to the centre of Prague; obliging staff, descendants of the Czech heroes that disposed of the filthy Reinhard Heydrich,

Free WIFI, would thoroughly recommend

Nice place with very good services for a little money. We stayed for two nights and we got clean towels and spreadsheets every day. Everyone was very kind to us. They have quiet good restaurant too. I'll certainly use this hotel again when I come to Prague.

This charming people oriented hotel was a fantastic location to stay in Prague. Having attended on business for the TG UEG course, views were amazing, lovely walk into the Old Town. The Vysehrad fortress just round the corner was impressive, the river a five minute walk as was the tram into the city. Rooms were comfortable, clean and warm. loved my visit to this hotel, thank you !

stylish hotel, really a few meters to the historic fortifications Vysehrad - panoramic view of Prague, 30 min. walk distance to Old Town Square. Large room, draft beer pilsner urquell, rich breakfast, cheap safe parking if you need

LOCATION
Charming area with lots of old buildings. Plenty of cafés and restaurants. Well connected to the Old Town and the Main Railway station through bus and tram. The Vysehrad fortess is just around the corner. The river is a five-minute walk away.

ROOM
Our suite (= large open area with bed room part and living room part) was located on the fifth and highest floor. Nice, clean room with rather new furniture. Remarkable, though, that one of the twin beds was more worn than the other and correspondingly less comfortable. Clean, fresh bathroom, although the slightly unfortunate shower construction made it a bit of a fuss to take a shower. Comfortable sofa. Roof windows, which could be opened.

NOISE LEVEL
No problem with noise from the rather lively street, but the thin walls to the neighbouring room didn't provide much sound protection.

SERVICE
Friendly, helpful English-speaking staff

BREAKFAST
Rich buffet including warm stuff, such as bacon & eggs.

RESTAURANT
Located in the charming, old cellar (or, weather permitting, outside in the yard). Varied menu and what we had was very tasty. At the time of our stay, the restaurant offered a 20% discount on food and drinks for guests of the hotel, which made value for money here great.

OTHER THINGS
Computer corner on the ground floor with internet-connected PC, available for the guests.

SUMMARY
We found it a very good option for our short stay (3 nights), providing really good value for money (we payed 72 EUR/night at booking.com) and a possibility to see an area we might otherwise have missed. For a longer stay - a week or more, say - the one bed and the shower would have made the stay a bit inconvenient.

Very close to a bus stop (for bus #18, 6 etc.) to Old Town, Prague Castle and to Wenceslas Square. Clean room, friendly staff and the breakfast was filling. There is a library in the breakfast room, i thought that was quite cool. Free wifi is available. The restaurant could consider offering more vegetarian options in their menu. Nice stay overall.
