We looked for a hotel with a good price and good tripadvisor review, and this was one of the top hits.
The hotel is located in some old street a little outside of Prague. It didn't look like there was much to do around, but there was a some kind of bar-restaurant just outside, and a supermarket around the corner.
We booked two deluxe rooms (just some euros extra from a normal room) - supposedly they were a little bigger and had a tea pot. The size of the rooms was nice, and we could easily and comfortably watch a football game in one of the rooms 4 adults and a dog. There was also a tea-pot with several sorts of tea and instant coffees available free of charge. In the room there was a small mini bar (just 1 beer, some water, I think a juice and 2 chocolates). its not free and (reasonable) prices are listed in the booklet on a table. There is also a can of peanuts (also not free) with price standing directly on top of the lid. Additionally, you can buy some drinks at the reception (we got there some small bottles of wine). Also, there is a supermarket just around the corner, which is open every day (even on sunday around 20 it was still open). We bought there a bottle of wine, and then asked at the reception to open it (which they gladly did).
The breakfast was fine - nothing extraordinary, some bread, ham and cheeses, some sausage and eggs, muesli, coffee and juice (not really a juice, more like a powder-mixed drink).
There was a private parking for the hotel available for extra charge, but you can also park your car on the street free of charge, which we did. Btw, Prague center is disastrous for parking. Head directly towards the big shopping mall if you need to park there. And never park where there is a blue line - its for residents only, and you will get your wheels blocked, and would have to wait for nearly one hour for the police to arrive and take it off.
The staff of the hotel is really friendly, and they do work to get their good reviews. On arrival we were given general information about the hotel, a free map of Prague, and also informed about working hours at the restaurant, and that it is better to make a reservation if we want to have dinner there, as they often close early since there are not many people. On the check-out we were asked if we had any suggestions or complains, if there is anything extra we would have liked to see at breakfast.
In the end we were greatly encouraged to leave a good review for the hotel. You get a welcome letter upon your arrival which promises you free night at one of the partner hotels if you send them the link to a good review :D.. which I think is a little cheating, but I am glad to see that the management of this hotel recognizes the importance of internet ratings. Given that the hotel is not located directly in the city, I think its the right direction for them. And I also believe that they are directed towards improvements, which is a good thing.
