I have stayed in Prague on a number of occasions and always with the big chain hotels. I took a chance on the Salvator and was very pleased I did!
Firstly, the location is excellent. Right in the centre of the city with the Old Square 5 minutes walk away and the main shopping areas 200 metres around the corner. Having said that, the hotel is situated in a quiet, one way street with little or no noise at all. The substantial double windows would keep it out even if there was.
The price is remarkable, upgrade to a superior double and get a big room with luxurious furniture, a big bathroom and large flat screen tv for 75euros....including a very good breakfast and free wifi. Half the price of a much more basic room in the local big chain hotels. Clean and modern.
Receptionists are professional and friendly with excellent English. Restaurant is good with a Mexican flavour. I had a quick steak late one night and it was delicious and pretty cheap. As mentioned, the breakfast has a good selection of cereals, breads, ham & cheeses, some cooked for the English and lots of coffees and teas. Nice touch is that you can fill up your plate and then choose to sit in the breakfast area or to wander around the many little restaurant alcoves to find some privacy (especially useful to avoid the English woman with the piercing voice and terrible cackle who seemed to be everywhere during my last visit!)
Overall, I can't fault the Salvator and the value for money is truly outstanding.
