Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2012

If you have read some of my other reviews, a theme is emerging. It is important to note we are Americans and are obviously used to a more comfortable, pillow top style bed.

We stayed at this hotel for a few nights in early June 2012. The location is AMAZING! Every night we walked down to the old square where city hall and Tyn Cathedral are. It was really easy to walk from here to most major attractions. In addition, the Namesti Republiky metro station, which is a main transportation hub, is right down the block. Furthermore, there is a huge mall called the Palladium right around the corner which was useful when we needed to buy some things from the Pharmacy and DM.

So location was a huge plus!

Another plus was the breakfast. We got a good package deal including breakfast, it was well worth it. Unlike most other trips I've taken in Europe where all that was provided was a crappy continental breakfast (think toast, cereal, some cold cuts), this restaurant truly had a fantastic spread. There was a chef making omelettes, there was a hot buffet with sausage, bacon, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, potatoes. There was a cold fruit buffet with at least five different types of fruit. In addition, there was cereal, filtered coffee (with the option of ordering cappuccinos), and danishes. We were very satisfied with the breakfast and one could easily fill up in the morning ensuring you only have to pay for one other meal a day.

Now, the minuses.

On first seeing the room, we both thought it was a bit small. My wife had called ahead several times to ask about the bed. She asked if it was a king size bed. We were told it was. In reality, I think Americans have much different dimensions for what they consider a king size bed. Our bed was more like a double twin. The size itself wouldn't have been a major problem except it was hard. If you sleep on your side like we do, expect to wake up with a numb arm, or sore shoulder, or pinched back. It was really unfortunate the bed was so hard because we did not wake up feeling rested a single morning.

So, to recap, the positives are the breakfast and the location. The negatives were the incredibly uncomfortable bed and the generally small size of the room.

If they would invest some money in more comfortable mattresses, it would have gotten a higher rating from us!

Room Tip: I wouldn't get a room on the first floor as we could hear the quite loud conversations of fellow...

Great hotel with history as Franz Kafka used to work for quite some time in his life here. Good location and great possibilities around the hotel

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute. The room was very clean, tidy, neat, and provided everything necessary to make a perfect stay. The staff were extremely helpful (especially the American member at the reception desk). Would recommend this hotel to everybody.

We stayed for four nights and everything about the Hotel is fantastic. We had a 'standard' room but was extremely comfortable, clean and was roomy - the bathroom was a good size with a powerful shower and soaps, gels and shampoos left daily. Surprisingly, tea and coffee was available in the room, which is a great thing to have after a day out and you come back to relax. Breakfast was included and you really couldn't ask for such variety - hot and cold food, breads and even cakes would satisfy anyone. The 'Kafka' connection makes the Hotel different and so interesting - it has retained a character which is often lost in 'modern' hotels. It is also in a great location - literally only ten to fifteen minutes walk to the (many) popular sights of Prague. Staff were friendly and helpful and pointed us in the direction of points of interest, in good English! Would stay here again and would definitely recommend it to others. If 'shopping' is an interest, then it is, literally, on the doorstep of a large shopping centre (including M&S!), the Palladium.
