I enjoyed my stay here. The staff were helpful and polite. The room and shower was clean and the beds comfortable. Towels were also provided. The continental breakfast ample and plenty of it .
The TV was limited to a few channels but the main screen downstairs in the lounge/bar area was available.
Although not in a main part of Prague, it was nice to be a small distance away. (Around 10 minutes by tram) Still ideal for sightseeing.
The tram stop is just outside or depending on your destination, Another junction is in the small town round the corner opposite hotel.
It's easy to hop on and off the trams for the city sites and the hotel staff are always willing to point you in the right direction if you're unsure. (Get an all day or 3 day ticket and you're set for sightseeing. Can also be used on the Metro, bus and funculiar transport)
Most people in Prague speak English and I found it very easy to ask.
If however, you check some site maps for the destination of the hotel, be aware this is wrong. We were originally sent to Praga 2 area when the hotel is in fact Praga 4. (Stop Otakarova on the tram line map.)
I had a great time staying here and enjoyed seeing Prague. I would be happy to use this three star hotel again for a break away when I next visit.
