My husband and I have just returned from a weekend in Prague where we stayed at Hotel General for 3 nights. At first I was a little apprehensive after looking at the website as the photographs don't do this place justice. Don't let it put you off! As soon as we arrived we were greeted with a very nice concierge and the reception staff went out of their way to give us some tips. She sat with us for about 15 minutes while she ran through the best ways to get around, best restaurants etc.. Extremely attentive!
We were offered an upgrade to a suite for a small additional cost per night so we decided to treat ourselves. The room was huge with a large king size bed, 2 bathrooms, hall way and living room. The bathrooms are really modern and spacious with amazing showers! The bed was really comfortable too. The only thing that could have been better is actually having a king size quilt rather than 2 singles but that's just me picking out the 1 tiny issue - it really didn't matter in the grand scheme of things!
Breakfast was lovely and the staff in the breakfast room were really friendly and polite and couldn't do enough for us. One morning we arrived a for breakfast a little later than usual and they had ran out of croissants.....so they made us some!! We were made to feel very special.
It was the staff that made our stay as good as it was - they are really excellent.
The hotel is about a 25 minute walk to Charles Bridge and the Old town and we found it good to be able to walk off our breakfast every morning and also a lovely walk down the river. The great thing about staying in Smichov is that there are excellent restaurants and bars that are really cheap because it's not too full of tourists so when you want to get away from the busy more popular places, you can make your way home for the evening via some lovely bars and restaurants!
If you can get past the slightly bold and traditional decor, I would highly recommend this hotel. You won't be disappointed!
