“Really really nice hotel, close to main places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

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.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

Stayed here as two families and we loved it. Courteous,friendly helpful staff, a truly fantastic breakfast ( try the make your own juice machine) , free wifi , good gym facilities, great bar food and clean modern rooms with excellent showers.
The location was excellent; only a short walk to Old Square. We took advantage of the free 30 min orientation tour and the recommendations of the staff of where to eat and shop.

Try it - We would definitely go again!

We recently stayed at the Josef hotel in Prague. It is well situated only 5 mins from the Old Town Square and close to good restaurants. The staff are extremely welcoming and the rooms comfortable and smart. A highlight is the brilliant breakfast with a great variety of fresh food. Highly recommended.

Hotel has amazing location, efficient service, huge breakfast and is very clean. The bathrooms are in a glass box in the bedroom, which may not meet all tastes. Very good value for money! I suggest it

On a December morning, at temperatures close to -11 degrees C, we pulled up at this beautiful, 'minimalist' hotel set in the Old Town.

We were received 'warmly' by a courteous staff and taken to clean, beautiful rooms. Soon it became apparent that Josef was not only most comfortable but wonderful to leg it to all the interesting attractions of Central Prague, starting from the quaint kiosk, opposite the hotel that sells 'vintage posters', to the fine pubs, restaurants, concert halls, bridges,Christmas markets and souvenir shops,Town Hall, churches and such to the pilgrimage stop for many, the Infant Jesus Shrine.

The hotel staff is well-trained and is at all times, courteous, friendly and helpful. Most everyone we met spoke good English. The buffet breakfast spread is superb, with the attending staff ready to fill in 'eggs-the way you want it' off the menu or bring in steaming coffee! We had a room that overlooked the spires of the Church of our Lady before Tyn and other parts.

In this UN Heritage town, this hotel is a great addition. Highly recommended.

Hotel is centrally located near Old Town Square. The rooms are modern and clean, although the rooms facing the front have some traffic noise. Rooms in the rear of the hotel are very quiet. Breakfast was included with the price and included both a buffet as well as the ability to order off the menu. It was very good and had plenty of variety. Hotel has an attached secured garage which while tight managed to fit our Land Rover (with the help of staff directing us). Following a great stay, staff followed up with a thank you note - almost unheard of today. Would highly recommend this hotel and plan to stay in it next time I'm in Prague.
