Kampa Island is a great place to stay in Prague - offering easy pedestrian access to all the sights on both sides of the river, but a bit out of the way and much quieter than the Old Town, especially late at night.
Hotel U Jazulatka seemed like the best choice on Kampa and we were not disappointed. Our room, #2 overlooking the square, was very comfortable and well appointed (though a wall-mounted shower fixture would be appreciated by North American guests). We were surprised to discover that in the summer there is a street food market in the square, which turned out to be a bonus ... great snacks and pivo available all day long and happy crowd sounds in the evening without rowdiness. We also enjoyed the hotel's riverside terrace for drinks and appetizers, though we didn't have a meal there, and found the breakfast room attractive and the buffet ample.
There are a couple of reasons for giving this charming hotel a rating of four rather than five:
- The hotel's air conditioning system had failed during a heat wave the week before we arrived and we were not informed of this at check-in. There did not appear to be any repair efforts underway during our 3 night stay. With our windows open due to the lack of air conditioning, we were awakened at 2 am by a loud conversation in the square, which turned out to be the hotel staff on a break. (Martina provided a bottle of prosecco in apology when told of this inconvenience, which was very much appreciated.)
- The level of service varied considerably depending on who was on duty. When the lovely Martina was on the reception desk, for example, we were offered cooked breakfast options. When her less engaged colleague was on duty, we were not.
In spite of these few "glitches" we would definitely stay at U Jezulatka again and recommend it to others.
