“Such a pleasant stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is by far the most unique hotels we've stayed at.

We thought being right in the centre of the Old Town it was going to be noisy - we were so wrong. Our room was so quiet, so peaceful. We couldn't hear a thing from anywhere. It was such a relaxing palce to be.

The room (Apartment Rio de Janeiro) was a bit small compared to the other ones I've seen however it was spacious enough upstairs to keep all the luggage/bags. The room was clean and tidy, with a very modern bathroom. It also opened out into a shared courtyard. There was a safe in the room, which is handy for storing valuables.


The location of this place is unbeatable. Literally minutes away from the Old Town Square, Charles Bridge etc etc.

I would highly recommend this place.

I would give five stars across the board except they need to work just a bit on their housekeeping. Everything else was top notch. Alex at the front desk was so incredibly accommodating before and during our stay. This was my second time staying at this hotel and I would highly recommend. The London Suite is my fav.

Got away with wife for a few days. This place was perfectly located in the old town. So quiet! Pin drop silence all the time. No noisy neighbours, music, residents bar etc. Very relaxing. Felt safe with friendly staff always present at the desk. The room has a digital safe for valuables (will take an iPad). Fast wifi connection (router was in our room!). I found our room quite small but it didn't matter as we spent most of the time wandering the beautiful streets of old Prague.

No doubt that this hotel has its location going for it. Literally a 3 minute walk gets you to the Astronomical Clock. However I must warn you to AVOID ROOM 7, AKA the Singapore Apartment. Somehow, we drew the shortest straw and had the pleasure of staying in this death trap. Literally, you have scale a almost vertical staircase with one railing to get to your beds. Forget getting luggage up there, it isn’t going to happen. That means the only place for your luggage is on the living room/kitchen/dining room floor. Now you have no room to move about your room. Have to use the bathroom during the night? Forget about it, unless you want to break your neck (seriously). This room should absolutely not be booked for anyone ages 15 and under and 45 and older. The computer is located in a very odd place, right next to the hotel front doors. Parking is very expensive, and there is no breakfast included. Most of the time when entering the lobby, the staff didn’t look up from what they were doing, a lot of times they were surfing the internet on the guest computer.
Pros: Location, Location, Location
Cons: Room 7 is death trap, computer in odd location, staff friendliness is hit or miss

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to visit Prague! Our room was the size of an apartment and I loved that the theme and high ceilings were very traditional to Prague style architecture. We were extremely central to the Old town and Charles Bridge.

staff very helpful - my wife got ill and they got a doctor very quickly. Cafe for breakfast fine, plenty nice restaurants nearby. One point worth making - the rooms vary in size considerably, ours was huge but some are quite small.

Our room was beautiful - lots of old world character, cozy and very nicely decorated with a complete kitchen and a lovely courtyard (shared between the two ground floor studio suites). Our room was the Berlin room, and was very large for two people. It is right behind the reception desk so there is some noise coming through, but it wasn't a big deal. The location is perfect - 10 minutes walk to Charles Bridge and to the main square, but on a quiet side street in the old town. It seems to be reasonably priced compared to other higher-end accommodation in Prauge. Great experience and definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Berlin room has access to a lovely courtyard. Window in bedroom doesn't open as it faces a resta...
