“As advertised (Almost)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Booked a quiet room for five nights with two bedrooms and a kitchen on a b&b basis for me, my wife and my father in law (75 years young and wanted to experience a city break).

Got a very quiet room with 2 bedrooms -
The beds the most comfortable beds i have ever slept in away from home - I am a poor sleepr and this was probably the best I have ever slept on holiday.
The beds had huge pillows - twice normal size. My wife fell in love with hers and wanted to take it home. I suspect she might have - had we not only had hand luggage with us.

The "kitchen" turned out to be a fridge, a microwave and a kettle. No utensis, Nothing except cups and glasses. Only time the hotel fell short of my anticipation.

Very handy as tram stop Lipanska right outside the hotel - so not much walking for "dad" on that front. Czechs very polite and 95% of the time he didnt have a seat on a bus/tram/metro a young Czech would freely offer up their seat for him. (did for me a couple of times too and Im 43 and not ready for the scrapheap just yet.

Breakfast was adequate if not exceptional to start you off for the day. Various Breads and Rolls, Hot Dogs, Cold Meat, Cheeses and Jams - There was also hot veg soup every morning (Strange).

No issues with room at all - a little tired perhaps, but perfectly acceptable.
Flat screen TV in our room was older model that didnt have HDMI input so couldnt connect tablet to it - but we werent in room that much so not too big an issue.

If I came back to Prague, would I return to this hotel?
Answer is Yes.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from the road as trams pass right outside the front rooms till 4am.

Good hotel, big clean rooms. Monotonous, but tasty breakfasts. Hard towels. Convenient location. Nearby tram stop. In the room could hear sounds of trams, but get used. In general the hotel were good emotions.

Отличный отель, удобное расположение, рядом трамвайная остановка. Есть шум от трамваев, но привыкаешь.

Good connection to the City center. TV Tower nearby . Stuff on reception checked me in at 23:30 when I arrived from the airport.( transfer was ofered, but it cost as as a single room/night) I was also able to buy beer on reception to have a pre sleep drink. Brekfast is good. Tram noise is heared all threw the night that is not good. Also dont forget to use chip key in the elevater. I'm not sure If I choose this hotel next time but for this stay it was ideal not expansive stay. Check out at 10.00 is a bit early for me

Just stayed here for 2 nights on my stag do. The location was within walking distance of the centre but situated in what we felt closer to some real prague. Room was what we required, great for the price and the staff were all excellent friendly and incredibly helpful

I wonder who assessed to rate this hotel three stars. The first thing that I am looking for in a hotel is the cleanliness. The result was terrible. Bed, sheets, pillows, pillow cases, towels were very old, torn off and dirty. If gray towels are used in a facilty, I think it, there is a problem with cleanliness. Why white ones are not used? Never believe any no-smoking rooms, because the corridor is smoking. If your plan is to go to night-clubs (!), drink and then just sleep, it is okay but without drinking it is impossible to put up with dirts. My all-in-all advise, please don't even consider to stay in this hotel. I can give credits for this hotel only for the receptionist girl whose was there when we arrive.

Literally a tram ride from the trainstation which is so cheap! so dont use a taxi they are so expensive! Lovely little place, two buildings, i was across the road, staff so helpful and polite, answered all my questions and sold me tram tickets at cheap price. Room was nice with microwave and kettle, although you will need your own things such as cutlery. Breakfast was great, so much choice and friendly staff there too! Tram ride away from main square and easy to use. Shops nearby also.

Hi All

We have stayed at this hotel 5 times now and we have enjoyed each of our stays. it is by no means the Ritz, but it is clean, the staff are very helpful and they speak excellent English. It is a basic no frills hotel, but the price reflects this. We dont tend to spend too much time in our hotel so as long as its clean and friendly then we are happy. It is next to the tram stop and its only a few stops to the centre. There are some good restaurants and bars within walking distance of Golden City.

Room Tip: In Prague with the excellent tram and metro systems you can travel with ease to and from your hotel.
