I stayed at the hotel for three nights and am quite happy with the general standard of the hotel. The best attributes are that it is in a perfect location, has a modern style and has the breakfast restaurant in a winter garden at the top floor. The breakfast itself could be better, as could the cleaning.
The location is right where I wanted to be - close enough to walk to the city centre and with subway, trams and buses close-by in case of bad weather or hurting feets, but at the same time outside of the "tourist zone" with all that comes with it. The neighbourhood is definitely authentic and you can find a couple of genuine Czech restaurants in the area.
The hotel is built and funished in a modern way with a lot of free space, so you don't feel trapped in your room. Everything worked and was clean, but the cleaning staff were really only doing the basics. They cleaned the room and made the bed, but they did neither collect an obvious pile of trash (candy papers, old subway tickets etc) on the nightside table nor empy plastic bottles lined up on the floor. They didn't even move the towel that was hanging over the wardrobe.
The breakfast was OK with a lot of choices, even though the quality of each thing wasn't meeting my expectations. This was however outweighed by the winter garden at the top floor where it was served. You could overlook the national museum and the neighbouring roof tops (not an amazing view, but much better than normal breakfast views) while preparing for the upcoming day.
The service from the front desk staff was good and we got a few good tips on restaurants, different non-tourist areas to visit etc. - always with a smile!
