“An excellent hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We stayed in the hotel for 6 days.We were two couples that were placed in different buildings. When we asked them if it was possible to transfer our friends to the building we were staying in they solved the problem immediately. All the employees were very polite and friendly. The espresso in our room (superior room) was free. Even the bottles of still water were without charge (that was the first time we stayed in a hotel that didn't charge their waters). The rooms were designed very nicely and they were perfectly cleaned every day. The breakfast was very tasty and we had a big range we could choose from.
The location was great. It was just four minutes from the square of the old town.
Everything at the hotel was simply perfect!

Room Tip: All rooms were quite and clean. The superior rooms though had a nespresso machine.

We visited the Czech Republic for a wedding in Cesky Krumlov and stayed at the Hotel Ruze which is supposedly a five star... The contrast between the Ruze and the Josef has to be seen to be believed. Granted one is a converted 16th century building and the other is a purpose built modern hotel but is there any excuse for towels with holes in them, or no drawer space whatsoever in your room?
The Josef is fabulous, immaculately clean, helpful and friendly staff, great location and a wonderful breakfast. If you visit Prague - stay here!

Dear MrsMoley,

thank you for taking the time to write about your impression of the different hotels you experienced in the Czech Republic. It is sad to read that the other hotel you stayed in was not meeting your expectations, however we are happy to know that your stay at Hotel Josef made up for it.

We sincerely hope you still have good memories of your time in CZ and would be delighted to welcome you back one day

Kind regards

From the moment we booked, we knew the service would be spectacular. It was personal, friendly, attentive and discreet. From the breakfast welcome and service, the reception, booking a restaurant + the return airport transfer. Checking availabilities on-line and rearranging timings... we would wholeheartedly recommend the hotel and the staff.

You know when you get a good feeling about a hotel and the staff who work there? ...this is one of those.... are you getting a good impression yet?

The rooms are stylish and modern, well presented and full of personal little touches that make you smile. The breakfast was delicious, from the daily specials including the 'sin of the day' to the one off orders for pancakes, ommelettes and Eggs Benedict... perfectly cooked poached eggs and tangy Hollandaise sauce. Yum!

We would happily adopt some of them. The champagne and cake on arrival for our wedding anniversary was thoughtful and a lovely surprise.

The free cocktail for booking direct on-line was a delight.
Room 806 was a spectacular surprise too.

One thing a guest who is taller than 1.8m would appreciate would be the shower spray rail being set higher but that can easily be adjusted, and wasn't a problem for us.

Thanks Andrea, 'George' and everyone at Hotel Josef. You should be proud of yourselves, we are and when we find ourselves back in Prague, we will return.

Also thoroughly recommend the Prague Airport Transfer Company [and Walking Tours, which are included within the transfer charge]... 550 coruna, but worth it for attentiveness, driving skill and door-to-door service. ['Ross' on the full day free walking tour was particularly was friendly, passionate and knowledgeable about Czech art, history, the practicalities, and the people of Prague and the Czech Republic.

Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 806... perfect.

The room was very big with modern furniture and great design. The shower was fantastic, love that see-though effect, great for romantic couples. Great location very close to old town square and great disco around the corner. Even found a fish and chip restaurant close-by! Will be a staying here again for sure.

Recently stayed in this Hotel on a business trip and i was perfect for either business or pleasure. The hotel is modern and new and in the Old town new all the sights and the river. What makes it different is the quality and friendliness of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble.
