Pros. Comfortable rooms, excellent service, very clean, very close to Old Town, Wenceslas Square and Charles bridge.
Cons. None that we could think of.
My wife and I stayed for Christmas. Its a really nice hotel close to the old town square. The hotel staff were very helpful, they explained where all the local sights were. If you're heading out, and its raining, they offer you an umbrella! If you're staying in, they have quite a few decent DVDs to choose from. Wifi is accessible in rooms and common areas. Beds are very comfortable, prob the best I've ever known in a hotel. English TV channels are restricted to news channels only, but you'll be out most of the time and won't be too bothered.
Hotel is about 25mins from airport, cab should cost approx 650-700 cz k. Hotel do offer their own service, but its a flat rate 850cz k. There are several restaurants nearby, if you like steak, try La Casa de Argentine, 2min walk from the hotel. Opposite the restaurant is the Prague Beer Museum, with 30 beers on tap.
The only thing I would say that the hotel missed out on, was the opportunity to offer guests something complimentary for choosing to spend Christmas with them at their hotel. It needn't have been expensive, but would have been a nice touch.
That said, I'd return to Hotel Josef without question.
