Most people gravitate towards the old town when they visit Prague, but this hotel is in lesser town (Mala Strana) set high up the hill in the shadow of the Castle, which is a quieter area, so you get a great sleep, and can still walk to the old town in about 25 mins. There are still loads of nice bars and restaurants nearby, and Nerudova (lovely touristy street that leads to the castle) is 3 mins walk.
The hotel is in the same street as the US embassy and they check cars for bombs etc as you drive up. It's opposite a convent and even the nuns get checked!
The hotel itself is more like apartments. There is not much of a lobby or any lounge areas, but there is a small bar and lovely outside courtyard area. Our room (201) looked out onto this and was quite pleasant. If you had a room higher up on 3rd or 4th floor I imagine you would have pretty views of red tiled roofs. Our room had a huge lounge, big bedroom with super-king sized bed, bathroom with bath, shower and twin basins, and a washing machine! It was beautiful - parquet flooring, high ceilings, all original features. There were tea/coffee making facilities, a mini bar and a safe(no deposit required). Wifi worked well in the room. We were there 3 nights and it was cleaned every day.
Breakfast is great, lots of choice and served in a picturesque attic room.
The hotel arranged our transfers to/from the airport for about £20 each way. Public transport would be way cheaper but it was a nice way to travel, took only 30 mins and we were on holiday after all :)
We slept better here than we have done in ages and returned home refreshed.
It is hard to pick accommodation in Prague as there is so much, but we would definitely stay here again.
