I have just returned from a trip to Prague with a friend and stayed in the Hotel Legie as our original hotel was fully booked. We had a triple room, as originally there were to be 3 of us travelling.
On arrival at around 10pm local time, the lobby lights were turned off giving the initial impression that nobody was at the reception desk. However, after looking around the corner, the receptionist did emerge from watching the tv! She was however very friendly, spoke excellent English, and took the time to provide us with some suggestions for our time in Prague.
Our room was on the 7th floor - fortunately there is a small lift you can use. The room was quite spacious, with a double-bed and a single bed made up (triple room). I believe the room could have been made up to sleep 4 people, which would make it quite suitable for a small family. There were no tea/coffee facilities, but it was very clean if basic. We opened the windows to let some cool air in, which sadly let in a lot of noise from what is a very busy road outside the hotel, and is a major drawback of using this hotel in the warmer summer months. The beds were comfy, a couple of chairs were available, and there was adequate storage for clothes etc but no safe deposit box. The bathroom was adequate, although the shower was very low down, set over a bath, and had no shower curtain which resulted in a very wet floor! There were no toiletries, so make sure to remember to take some!
After dropping our bags off, we went out for a stroll around the local area. There are quite a range of amenities within a few minutes walk - including the ubiquitous McDonalds, KFC and Tesco Express! There are also a lot of banks, but fortunately also some decent Czech bars which sell a decent glass of local beer for a much better price than the more touristy areas, as well as a few restaurants. There is a local pizzeria which does a good selection of pizzas, calzones and pastas at very reasonable prices - it is literally just over the road from the hotel and worth a trip (the name I forget, but it was something to do with a beaver!).
We only managed to get up for breakfast on the last day (it is served from 7am-10am) and it seemed to be the standard continental affair - sadly uncovered which always puts me off the cold meats, cheeses and yoghurts. I cannot comment much further than this, but others seemed to be enjoying it so it can't be too bad!
The rest of our stay followed a similar pattern, the hotel is functional if basic but if you are just using it as somewhere to sleep it is an excellent choice. Wenceslas Square is about 10 mins walk if that's your scene, the old square is maybe twenty minutes away by foot, and you can easily spend the an enjoyable evening within 10 minutes of the hotel if you don't want to be mingling with the British stag parties in the centre of town!
If I was to visit Prague again I would consider the Legie, although I would ask for a room at the back of the hotel and ensure it was on one of the higher floors (there are 8 floors in total). All in all, a good value-for-money budget hotel.
