We stayed here for one night. The receptionist was very friendly and spoke English. There is a private car park (€6 per day). There are good links into the city centre by tram (tram 24 or 18). The hotel sells one way tickets or you can buy return/24 hour tickets from the machine at the tram stop (24 hour pass is 110 czk). The room was a good size but there were some issues. The bed was VERY squeaky so that every time I moved it made a terrible noise. The curtains were too small for the window so I had to use a towel to block out the light. We were on the 3rd floor so had the slope of the roof. This could have explained our shower experience. There was no fixed shower head, which meant you either had to hold it or have a bath. There was the tiniest shower screen as otherwise you wouldn't have got into the bath. You could stand up if you were right up against the wall but not otherwise. My husband had a bath, I tried a shower and needless to say I flooded the bathroom in the process. The bathroom sink tap took enormous strength to turn on and then it gushed at full speed. It needs some tlc. There is a free mini safe in the room for you to use. You have to leave your key with reception when you go out. There is a tv in the room that has bbc and cnn news channels and a couple of other channels in Czech. Breakfast had a good choice - juices (watery), coffee, tea, meat and cheeses, cereals, hard boiled eggs, sausages, bread, cake, fruit salad, salad. They also serve evening meals and give you a 10% discount card but we didn't eat here for dinner. There is a trainline running right next to the hotel. I asked for a room on the opposite side and they obliged. With the window closed I didn't hear the trains, but the noise of the rain on the roof was very loud, there was some kind of metal ledge right outside the window. The room was very hot (25C) and we couldn't alter the radiator. The wifi didn't work in the evening but did work in the morning. The reception sell snacks and water and there is a petrol station next door. The hotel is well presented, there is a lift and stairs. Despite the few issues with the room it was good value for money and gave us the parking space we needed. A great base to explore Prague from.
