Stayed here a few days during our Prague visit. Room was, to say the least, rather dated and not everything quite fitted, but it was clean, the bed comfortable, there was a nice shower and breakfast was varied and plentiful. Staff at reception all seemed quite young, but were very friendly and helpful. Place is outside the center, you can...

We arrived at the airport quite late and no one was there to pick us up like it was booked and confirmed several times. We had to call the hotel and the lady was completely incompetent and could not even call another taxi for us. We had to find our way there at 1AM. All the staff was ridiculous, useless...

I was visited this hotel with my friends . First say the food of this hotel is good . Also room service is available and it is very good. Interior design is also impressive. Therefore I recommend this place for four star.

Room was not nice, carpet didn't meet together, mattresses are old with springs in your back. Bathroom has mould growing on shower walls, you can hear the toilet flush from upstairs and it sounds like it's raining in your room. I thought I had to grab an umbrella as it sounds like it's coming through the roof. The smell of...

My husband and I are staying here not of our own choice, but because this expat care company chose it for us as we go through the process of finding permanent residency. I'm sure they chose it because it's the cheapest place in Prague. Let me start with the good things: -The staff is friendly -There is a rainfall shower...

Well this place was a disappointment. Booked based on price and three star rating. Really can't understand how this achieves a 3 star rating? Room was a decent size with twin beds. Bathroom recently refurbished but our friends rooms were in desperate need of work. For a 3 star hotel you'd expect clean sheets each day, especially when the temperatures...
