IBIS Old Town is located two minutes away from the Namesti Republiky subway station. On the metro station, go to Palladium exit. Palladium is a large shopping center with a grocery store that works till 22.00 (weekdays at least) on the ground floor, IBIS is next to it (Na Porici street).
Room was small but enough for two and equipped with bathroom. We paid about €60 per night for the whiole room using an online deal from hotels.com. Breakfast was included.
Room: cleaned daily, small somewhat, so we felt lack of air at times. Airconditioning was not going on as heating season started. It however did not causes us much trouble.
Breakfast: basic usual breakfast with sausages, baecon, scrambled eggs, juice, coffee etc. (before 10.00 - after that only paistries and fruits). Not a huge choice but just fine.
Service: we had a broken hair dryer and when we complained about it, they were about to send someone right away. Hotel promises to sort out such things in 15 minutes according to their advertisement found in the room. Other help we had from hotel was printing (they tried to deliver it to room, too!) and asking bus schedules, all done fast and right away.
The room does not have kettle or iron. Iron is located somewhere 1st floor, and hot water can be taken in mugs from bar in the lobbly at no cost.
Internet connection was there and showed a good speed on test, but it was not perfect and showed slightly intermittent connection. It seems to have issues with parallel connections, as google maps were loading very unstable. Even though, we were fine doing all common internet tasks such as skyping or looking things up.
Location is nearly perfect. Within 2-3km you can get to most of attractions by foot.
Eating out: there are Chinese and kebab places around (e.g. Revolucni street has one chinese place), and several grocery stores. Check cafepalanda.cz nearby for inexpencive good meal in local style (Zlatnická 1122/11). You can find Vodafone and 02 offices in Palladium. I have bought internet sim card for 150 czk, they have 75 czk/week internet connection for up to 500 M/month. So for €6 I have equipped my phone with mobile internet for duration of our stay.
Getting from Airport: we used bus 119 from Airport to Dejvicka metro station and then metro to Namesti Republiky. Airport Express bus takes you to this metro station (stop by request) but it's more expensive.
One last thing: Prague is a top city for tourist traps and various sort of rip-offs. In airport, I was about to withdraw local money, and ATM (Bankomat) was trying to convince me to "convert money from EURO to CZK" or alternatively "withdraw without conversion". It however showed that conversion will be done using a rip-off rate. ATM messages were designed to convince me in unsafety of direct withdraval, as "in such case conversion rate is not guaranteed". Nevertheless, "take the risk" and withdraw money w/o conversion! It will give you honest rate, as I later checked in my bank. In case you choose withdraval with conversion, you will lose 10% of money on it.
