We stayed at the MO for 8 nights in July and I would have to say it was a very pleasant experience.The staff are what makes this place as they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.I only have two minor gripes about the place and they are the rooms are very noisy during the day (was jet lagged coming from a different time zone) with slamming doors and the baths and marble floors are very very slippery (they supply a rubber bath mat so must know about it ).I nearly went AOT on two occasions and on the second one ended up with a massive bruise on one of my legs.However as most negatives have a positive after the slip against the edge of the bath with a sore leg we decided the next day to hire sedgeways and do a three hour guided tour.(this facility is just outside the hotel gate).The sedgeway tour was fantastic and the distance you cover is huge.I would recommend it at the start of your trip as you will then have a better idea of the layout of the city, seriously they only take ten minutes to master and there wasnt a hill they couldnt tackle.Breakfasts were great in the morning and the few lunches we had really nice.The had a asian influence on the lunch menu and the Pad Thai was better than any I have had in Thailand.The gym we used almost every day and one morning my wife thought she would go at 5.30am (opening time 6am).I saw one of the staff rush after her to open the gym early.We organised a tour guide and driver thru the concierge to a nearby ancient Nickel/gold mining town which is called Kutna hora.The hotel only charges 5% commission to organise these tours which is very cheap.Also in this town was a ossuary a church of bones, well worth a look even though it was a little ghoulish.
Probably the best meal we had of the whole trip was over the charles bridge at the four seasons (only a short walk).Alegro is the name of the restaurant and the food was superb.It is a mitchelin star restaurant and thoroughly deserving of that rating.
All in all Prague and the MO are a very good experience.Kudos to the staff they make the place.
