My husband and I visited Prague in December and stayed at the Hotel Josef for three nights. The hotel is situated in the Old Town Jewish Quarter and it seemed like a perfect location. You were a short walk away from everything, including the Christmas markets that were there for the holidays. The hotel was immaculate. Large rooms and bathrooms,... More

Basic... Sub standard at best--wrapped in shiny gift paper. When you read the reviews of the hotel you are completely misled as to what the hotel really is all about. They boast themselves of being a modern hotel, obviously, by modern they mean minimal and basic. There is nothing luxurious or modern about the hotel. The wifi is as modern... More

Lovely hotel which met all our needs. Great location being only a 5 minute walk to the old town square and 15 minutes to the Charles Bridge. The room was clean, staff were friendly and they offered a great breakfast with plenty of choice (anything that came fresh from the bakery was brilliant). I would highly recommend this hotel to...

Do Not, I repeat, DO NOT stay at this hotel. They are heartless, and I won't even call them human. Mom and I were supposed to stay there last summer on a great 2 week trip to Prague/Amsterdam, when my grandmother (mom's mom) passed away suddenly, 4 days before the trip and we had to cancel. Well, the hotel charged... More

Josef hotel, Prague is amazing in all areas of the hotel and in the perfect location slap bang in the City Centre. Too say the staff cannot do enough for you would be an understatement I even received an email before I arrived welcoming me to the hotel from the Manager. The bedroom was so stylish and the glass cube... More

If you're even in Prague, don't waste your time looking into numerous hotels; Josef will cater for all your preferences; central location, upgraded modern style, clean rooms, free WiFi, and FANTASTIC breakfast buffet selection as well as a la carte menu (you can order omelettes, hot drinks and pancakes all included in breakfast price). The best thing about the hotel... More

We stayed for 5 nights at Hotel Josef over the New Year period. The hotel was modern and rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and having both the buffet and menu options was a fantastic bonus. Service at breakfast was also fantastic and gave us something to look forward to each day. Location was walking distance from Old... More

Wonderful hotel in a great location 5 mins from the old town square, rooms were lovely and spacious, will def stay here again. Many restaurants around and handy for all the main tourist attractions. We had a lovely room with a balcony which would be great in the summer and the coffee machine in the room was a great addition.

Stayed here in mid-December for two nights and loved it! Booked the hotel through its website as it offered free breakfast and free drinks. The rooms were expected of a 4 star standard – very clean and comfortable. Also enjoyed the Nespresso coffee and Orla Kiely amenities – very good in value for its price and for a 4 star... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
