“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Stayed 6 nights with family (late teens to early 50's) to include New Years. All enjoyed stay. Very nice for those who like designer modern boutique hotels. Rooms (superior delux) well designed- glass bathroom unique and fits decor well. Staff and service friendly and very helpful. Had small booking error that they cheerfully corrected and then provided a complimentary bottle of wine. Location excellent- few minutes walk to all areas but tucked in small side street so little noise. Highly recommend

I have been staying in this hotel before and find it just as nice this time. Outstanding breakfast, nice sauna and gym. Close proximity to both shopping and restaurants. Very helpful staff. Nice drinks and food in the bar.
The hotel didn't organize new year eve party, so we booked one in the Intercontinental. We could just as well travel to Moscow, based on the amount of Russian guests. I found therefore this hotel small, quite, comfy, international and will definitely come back.

I just came back from spending 14 days in Central Europe. I was on a river cruise from Budapest to Nuremberg, then took a bus from Nuremberg to Prague where I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Josef.

What can I say???? From the moment I arrived I was greeted by Florentine who is the Front Office Manager. Not only was she gracious and professional, she immediately set up dinner and tour reservations for me. Her fellow staff members who worked at the reception desk offered the same kind and professional demeanor.

Then there was Petr who worked at the lobby bar. His attention to my needs was at such a high standard I was truly amazed.

The rooms are ultra-modern and extremely comfortable. The breakfast buffet was a perfect start before taking to the streets do Prague.

I will return to Prague one day and the Hotel Josef will be my choice again.

Thank you to all of the staff and Happy New Years
.

Room Tip: The Pink Tower faces the front of the hotel and you can hear the horse carriages go by. Quite charm...

Wonderful boutique hotel walking distance to everything. The rooms were quiet, clean and full of hot water. We had our business meetings in the hotel and food was great! Breakfast and lunch lots of variety. When my business was done,
I stayed on at the Josef and felt very safe and secure staying in the neighbourhood. Would definitely stay there again.

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 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.
