First, remember always that you are renting a cabin on a boat and the price is €38/ night including free breakfast and free WiFi..
With that in mind the cabin is tiny, even by Ibis standards. We had to remove a chair from the room so we could put our bags in. Two bunks on each side of the room were quite comfortable and long enough for my 183cm while a double wardrobe supplied more than enough hanging space. Shelves and cabinets above one of the bunks provided more storage. The bathroom was also tiny, but functional.
We enjoyed spectacular views across the river to the beautiful buildings on the other side, even the floodlit palace could be seen shimmering across the water at night. And its quiet – no traffic or river noises invade your sleep. The location of the Florentine is superb. It’s just a 4 minute walk to the old town square, and a further 10 minutes to Wenceslas Square.
Every one of the staff that we dealt with was friendly, helpful and cooperative. The bar manager even made us gluewine– delicious and warming on a freezing nite. We had an early departure and they made us each a breakfast pack. Reception staff were also most obliging.
Breakfast was okay with juice, cereal, meats and cheeses, and a hot serve – scrambled egg and sausages on successive days, and spreads for the varieties of breads.
On the negative, it’s noisy from other guests. A tribe arrived back from a night out at 1140 and made a huge racket talking and laughing until 1205 and all this just down the corridor from reception. Only one power outlet in the room is insufficient for 1 phone, 2 camera batteries, Ipad and netbook. The choice of TV programs is poor with no international channels available that I could find.
Overall though, its certainly worth the price and we would certainly stay here again.
