One of the best hotel experiences in recent memory. The staff is excellent and is probably the best part of the hotel. I'm an American, and I'm fairly certain that their English is at least as good as mine. There are lots of nice and unexpected personal touches that you'll notice that show that they really want you to remember their hotel and come back in the future.
Pricing is very competitive for a hotel as nice as this. I paid roughly $125 a night for two nights and was treated like I was their only customer.
The location is probably not what some people would call ideal, but you could certainly do a lot worse. You can be in Old Town Prague (one of the best city sections in Europe) in 10 minutes by public transportation or 20 minutes by walking down the scenic Vltava River. Unless you have difficulty walking that distance or are uncomfortable trying to figure out the public transportation system (or if you want to get hammered at a bar and drunkenly stumble back to your hotel room), then the location is great.
A/C and wifi. I think many Americans expect those now since most chains in the US offer them, but those niceties are not as common in Prague hotels. Just because a place says it's got WiFi doesn't mean its very good. And just because a place says it has a/c might just mean that the lobby has a/c and not the rooms. Hotel General has excellent free WiFi and air conditioned rooms.
If you're going to Prague and you're not physically unable to walk for 20 minutes and want a very nice room for not a lot of money, I can't recommend Hotel General enough.
