We stayed 5 nights here. We arrived via red-eye flight and had no problem checking in at 11am (despite official 2pm check-in time). The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, giving us city maps and pamphlets with suggested tours and booked a few tours for us (although we had to pay with cash because they weren't allowed to take credit cards by the tour company).
The location is convenient (2-3 minute walk) to the #12 tram line that drops you off near the Charles Bridge and a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro stop (Nadrazi Holesolice station). If you don't want to use Prague's public transportation then this hotel is too far to walk into town and probably a little expensive for frequent taxi rides to/from the Old City.
Wi-fi worked well throughout the hotel. Our 4th floor room was comfortable. Despite facing the street we didn't find it particularly noisy except for an occasional siren. The A/C worked well. The room had a refrigerator which we discovered the second day, "hidden" behind a wood cabinet door under the flat-screen TV, but no safe for valuables.
The only negative thing about the room was that our combo tub/shower had a high step-over sill to get into and out of it, a problem for those that are less mobile.
The buffet breakfast was very good, the staff was very attentive about restocking depleted items. For lunch and dinner the Mexican restaurant in the same place puts out decent food, maybe slightly different than the Tex-Mex we're used to in the US.
If we ever return to Prague this hotel would be definitely considered.
