We stayed at the Green Lobster for 5 nights staying in the "Arcimboldo" suite on the first floor.
This suite is split level with a very comfortable large double bed on the mezzanine which enjoys a sloping ceiling and exposed wooden beams making the bedroom area cosy. The mezzanine itself is accessed via a tight and steep staircase therefore if your mobility is restricted this is something to consider. But overall this aspect adds an extra dimesion to the ambience of the accomodation.
In contrast the airy lounge area has a very ornate decorated ceiling with exposed wooden beams, and a small adjoining kitchinette with fridge but strangely with no cutlery or cooking equipment - but no problem as ample eating and drinking options are available in close vicinity on Nerudova street.
A slight negative were the views from the lounge and bedroom being somewhat limited, overlooking an interior courtyard only with no view of the surrounding rooftops or Petrin Hill.
Overall, the cleanliness in the hotel was faultless, our bathroom was spotlessly clean every day, with fresh towels provided. There is a good quality hairdryer provided in the bathroom, and the hotel provides an iron for pressing clothes - although no ironing board when we stayed ("just use the table" - they said) !
Breakfast was simple, but the adage of "less is more" rang true. Good quality pastries cold meat and cheese were served with coffee or tea in the comfortable restaurant that adjoins the hotel.
Hotel location is brilliant for exploring both the castle, the maze of streets in the Mala Strana and Petrin Hill and its surrounds (although the latter is a good 20 minute up hill hike). There are numerous bars, restaurants and coffee shops on the Nerudova street on which the hotel is situate to suit all budgets.
For the price, comfort and decor this hotel is brilliant value for money and its location is slap bang in the picturesque Mala Strana.
Top tip : Flat screen TV with numerous channels not normally available in the UK made for curious late night viewing.
