I had booked this hotel for my husband and I during the Hervis Half Marathon that was taking place the same week end. Since it's extremely central and a short 5 mins walk from the start and finish of the race I thought this place would be perfect location wise (that said all the good hotels are within a 3 mile radius of each other). Our reservation (booked from the site, called the gateway package) included a limo pick up from the airport, breakfast and some refreshments. Having heard about the bar we thought it would be interesting to stay in such a place. It did not disappoint in any way. Far exceeded our expectations. When we checked in, we informed the front desk that our luggage was delayed - they immediately asked us for the papers and informed us that they would take care of everything onward. So lovely. Then they proceeded to bring us to our room and inform us of all the facilities and services - facilities didn't include a lot, a spa in which you had to reserve a week in advance since it fills up quickly. Plus the gym is not located in the hotel itself - which didn't really matter for us since we were there to run outside.
The rooms itself are large and spacious, plus the toilets are separated which is a huge bonus. The bathroom itself is beautiful, large bathtub and good sized shower with great water pressure. The rooms are a little dark, but I presume this is part of the decor, bedding is great, and the room staff clean up twice a day, in the mornings and before you go to bed, they even fold your clothing! The day of the race we had a maid knock on our door and provide us with some fitness nutrition, two sets, one of myself and the other for my husband. A wonderful touch, I was truly impressed. Breakfast was perfect. Everything is included, coffees, fresh orange juice, eggs etc... We've been to many, many places where we always end up paying extra for espresso or juices.
We never ate at the restaurant, but did visit the bar in the basement - very much enjoyed the music, drinks and service was perfect. However be warned that smoking is still very much permitted in public spaces, as such it got smoky very quickly. Perfect stay all around, great service and wonderful rooms. Highly recommend

Thank you very much for your detailed review and I am glad we exceeded your expectations at the Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague.
Personally, I am happy that a number of half marathon runners chose our hotel as their base as I myself participated in this sports event.
I sincerely hope that the delay of your luggage did not spoil your time in Prague and you will return soon.
