My husband and I are staying here not of our own choice, but because this expat care company chose it for us as we go through the process of finding permanent residency. I'm sure they chose it because it's the cheapest place in Prague. Let me start with the good things: -The staff is friendly -There is a rainfall shower... More

Well this place was a disappointment. Booked based on price and three star rating. Really can't understand how this achieves a 3 star rating? Room was a decent size with twin beds. Bathroom recently refurbished but our friends rooms were in desperate need of work. For a 3 star hotel you'd expect clean sheets each day, especially when the temperatures... More

If you book this hotel because of free parking (as we did) or because of having nice romantic evenings - dont do it. 'Free' Parking ment to park our car on the street, where the locals are parking. That would be still fine (eventhough I would expect to have my car on hotels pparking lot), but ther is not much... More

The room was clean, the Lobby was Basic but nice. At the Front desk they have been really friendly. Due to the infrastructure everything was reachable. I would return any time. 4 points simply because it was Basic.
