This is a solid 4-Star Hotel on the European scale. Stateside, this would be 3.95 stars in my book.
Transfer to Hotel: We used CK-Shuttle from Hallstat to this location. It was easy to find on the main road Narodni.
Check-in: Easy, just had to give the standard passport information. It was our honeymoon, and I reached out to the hotel manager for a 4th floor room that does not face the front street (other reviews said it was too noisy). Javier Chamoso was the manager, and he set us right. We got room #414, and it was awesome! He even sent us a bottle of Brut and a box of chocolates (on the house) to our room! We got the room you see on their website with the arched ceilings and the swanky bathroom. This is service you rarely see in Europe.
The Location: Couldn't ask for anything better! Easy walk to Old town, Mala Strana, and the 22 tram is just outside for a ride to the castle. Quick tip on the Tram, there is a small hole in the wall convenience shop right by the tram where you can pay your 24 CZK for a one way ride on the tram. Also works for the funicular up Petrin Park! Don't forget to validate when you get on.
The Room: Huge king sized bed, Wood floors, good a/c, large windows that let in a lot of light. Quaint, perfect. The bathroom was very well done. Awesome shower, basic toiletries, and clean towels daily. Room includes a programmable safe and WiFi was very good up here. We were able to stream HD shows. Good view of the top of the National Theatre, and if you poked your head out of the windows, you could see Prague Castle. The room was quiet, and with the blinds, you could close it to complete darkness.
Hotel Foods: They have a large breakfast buffet (8 EUR) and dinner buffet available. We never went, but it looked like there was a big selection.
Eats Nearby: Cafe Lourve is close by and the food there is great! Better for Lunch and Dinner-- very affordable! U Medvidku is just a block east -- great czech food and beer. If you need a break from pork and bread, go to the vietnamese restaurant just east of the hotel in the shopping atrium indoors. Legitimate North Vietnamese Pho for 89 CZK. Cheap beer as well.
Checkout: Easy checkout at noon. You get charged a small tourist fee upon check out which is required by the state. Have cash ready. They have a luggage holding room, and kept our stuff until the cab came to take us to the airport. We used Prague Airport Transfers, and they found our place easily. Took 30 minutes to get the airport in traffic. Note: Late check out (if avail for your room) costs 30 EUR for 2pm, and 60 EUR for 4pm if memory serves.
