“Loved the contrast of a modern hotel with Old Prague...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Very bright, modern feeling that we liked as a contrast to the "old Prague" just outside the door. We were in the "Orange" section of the hotel--room 211. That section is well back from the street and therefore was extremely quiet. The room overlooked the courtyard. Comfortable bed; neat, clean, "fresh-looking" room.

I read some negative comments about the hotel being on a back street, or questionable neighborhood. It is less than 1/2 a block from two major streets that lead directly to the old square or opera house area (shopping malls, restaurants, busy, busy). In my opinion the location of the hotel is almost ideal, but it is on a small street.

We found everyone on staff speaking excellent English. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Due to a very early morning flight home we used the hotel's car service. It was no more than a regular taxi and was very reliable and comfortable. The car can be charged to your room. Another advantage.

Room Tip: Ask for the Orange section.

The stay at this hotel exceeded all expectations. It is perfectly located on the edge of old town. You literally within a couple of minutes walking distance from main attractions and at the same time away from huge noisy crowds. Both rooms I rented were great with very good amenities in them. Staff was very helpful and attentive at all times of day or night. If I am ever back to Prague this is the hotel I will stay at and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

This small designer hotel is perfect in every way. To begin, the location was great, 5 minutes walking distance to the main square. The staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. The rooms were small (this is Europe) but very functional and air conditioned (very helpful in August and not found in all hotels). The breakfast was included and was superb, served either in the a/c dining room or a lovely garden. WiFi was free. And the price was under 200 USD/night.

This was a beautiful hotel in perfect location to everything, friendly staff. Included breakfast was one of the best of any hotel I have been to. Stayed in room 803 and 801- both were amazing- 803 had full windows on 2 of the walls with beautiful views. 801 was larger and stil had the windows, also a very cool bathroom setup...not too private however, if not traveling with someone you are close with.

Room Tip: 8th floor rooms...803 and 801 from my experience

Polite staff and a clean hotel. Rooms are quite comfortable with an nespresso machine inside. It is a few minutes walk to city where you will find shops, bars and restaurants. Charles Bridge is about a 10-15 minute walk from here. Prague Castle is about 45 min walk. Those that want to rest, the hotel has free wifi and a bar downstairs. It is actually in the foyer as you walk in. Breakfast is ok. It feels like, 'a bit of this and a bit of that' , if you know what I mean. This would probably be the only downside of this hotel I can pick on. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a very good stay, excellent service and beautiful design hotel. Good breakfast and no dinner possibility, but there are so many good and cheap restaurants in this beautiful city. The old city square is on walking distance also the river Moldau. Hotel rooms are excellent, good design and a lot of space. Employees are offering a good service and speak good english
