“Awkward stay”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

I had very unpleasant sleeping experience. Our rooms were on the third floor with sloping roof. After hitting the roof 2 times we were very careful getting in and out of the bed. You need to be a expert to get in and out of the slippery bathtub which is a high level. I could not figure out a way to take a bath without spilling water on the floor. Housekeeper would never provide with new soap. The carpet was never vacuumed. There are only 15 inch TVs. The breakfast was nice.

I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights in May.
ROOM: I had a single attic room that was very clean. However, be carreful! In case of staying in a warm spring or sommer, the room will be overheated. The owner is aware of this and placed a big fan there. In my opinion, this doesn't help you very much. (no air condition). So don't choose rooms on the third floor (Nr. 3xx).
The second big problem is a proximity of the very frequented railway. Some rooms has windows facing to it and the noise is very disturbing, especially if you have to air the room.
The room has a safe, very small, but for free.

BREAKFAST: not bad, it is better prague standard
RESTAURANT: If you want to taste Pilsner beer, go to the another restaurant. No expierence with food
INTERNET: free and fast WiFi
LOCATION: Except the railway, as I have told, very good. You can take trams Nr. 6 or 11 and in 5 minutes you are in the city centre.

It is a good little hotel that serves nice breakfast; most generous(buffet) that we had in our 3 weeks trip to Europe.

We didn't think it was far from the city considering Prague wasn't a very big city. The public transport is good and the city transport passes are quite reasonable. You could buy these passes from the hotel reception.

Most of the times we were on foot and used the trams only on our return when we were tired. The neighborhood is safe and has lot of restaurant which unlike the restaurants in the city center weren't overpriced!

Room Tip: Take a room on the 2nd or 1st floor.

For the money that we paid, it was an awesome hotel! We have firstly booked another one but when we read the reviews we canceled it and booked Ostruvek.

I do not regret that we did this wise step! The stuff is really helpful, they speak very good English, they are always willing to give you an advice about directions, shops, trips etc. and it is clean!

We were in Room #1 which is on the first floor near the reception. It was quite and peaceful. Some people wrote in their reviews about the noise from the trains and yes, there is a noise but if you window is closed you can barely hear it... Moreover, we were there for sightseeing, not for staying in the hotel room so it was not an issue. Just be careful because if you buy smth from the reception (water, beer etc) it is a bit more expensive than if you buy the same product in a restaurant or from Tesco which is 3 stops by tram (7 and 24).

I would suggest- Go to this Hotel!

Room Tip: If your flight is early in the morning and if you want to have breakfast, inform them in advanced an...
