Excuse the tardy review. We visited in August and I still have wonderful memories. It was one of those places you stay that have a tremendous impact on your enjoyment of your visit. We were traveling to celebrate our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed every detail of lovely hospitality.
The hotel is as pretty as it is in the photos. The three story clock painting on the stairwell wall was fantastic, and the room was large and romantic - exactly matching its photo. We stayed in the executive room on the top floor facing the pretty little square and loved it. It had two floor to ceiling windows which we stood in to look up at the castle or watch the peaceful comings and goings below. The front rooms face the square and the back the bridge and river. Everything was spotless.
The breakfast was a little too good ;-). Wide selection of pastries, breads, meat/cheese, fruits and cereal, with eggs/omelets when requested. There is a small cafe out back on the river, we didn't get a chance to eat there but it did make the full array of beverages available at a little bar in reception.
My husband and I add our thanks to the exceptionally sweet, efficient and accommodating staff. From reservation and room selection to anything we asked for during our stay, and any information we requested about getting around Prague. Everyone was eager to help as well as very warm and friendly, but reserved when you want privacy.
Regarding the location, which we found magical, we were surprised that it seems to be fairly "undiscovered" by the high season crowds (which of course we were part of when we left the island!). It has no cars and we felt in another small and calm world, with the stairs to the Charles Bridge a few steps to the right, Kampa Park - much used by Prague residents - and modern art museum to the left, and the Lennon Wall around the corner. It was an easy walk across the bridge to the Old Town Square, or up to the town center on our side. From there, a short bus ride up to the Castle. It was too hot for me to walk up when we visited, but others did, and the walk down and back to the hotel was a beautiful highlight. From the same stop we took trolleys everywhere in the city too far to walk.
One late night favorite was an extra stroll across the bridge, away from the daytime heat and with fewer fellow visitors. The sight of the lights of the city reflected on the river is unforgettable.
