We stayed for three nights August 28th to 31st 2012. We accepted the hotel's offer of an airport transfer for convenience and the driver was waiting for us when we arrived. We were, however, concerned when looking for the seatbelts that the driver told us "no function". I don't know if it is against Czech law to travel without seatbelts but it certainly is unsafe.
Anyway no such problem with the return transfer except that the driver was on his mobile phone for the entire journey!!
Having said all that I can now move onto the positives.... We were greeted at reception by a lovely young lady who was really welcoming and friendly and very informative with regard to the hotel and Prague itself. The welcome drink was much appreciated too. We were given room 308 which was excellent. Very spacious, well furnished and clean with minibar, flat screen tv, free wifi (ask for code at reception). The bathroom was also spacious and well equipped. We had a very minor problem when the hair drier short circuited and tripped all the power to the room, but this was dealt with swiftly and efficiently by the same girl who checked us in, restoring the power and providing a replacement drier within a few minutes of us reporting the problem.
There was a good choice at breakfast, fruit, cereals, hot food, juice coffee toast etc. I have since read that the chef makes pancakes to order, though we were blissfully unaware of that as no one told us and there was no signs to that effect. In fact another minor thing was that most of the breakfast staff were quite sullen and not really friendly and didn't offer much help.
The hotel is in a great location only a couple of minutes stroll to the Old Town Square with its lovely architecture, restaurants and bars.
We did not try the hotel restaurant so can't comment on that. We ate one night at the U Prince on the Old Town square which was excellent and can highly recommend the Jazz boat for an evening of music, dinner and cruising on the river.
We would reccomend the Savic Hotel and would stay there again if we returned to Prague.
