We loved this hotel experience while in Prague. The staff was extremely attentive and helpful. We needed 2 rooms and they were modern and exceptionally clean. Breakfast, which was included, was over the top with tasty choices and delicious coffees. We will definitely be back!

Back from our first visit to Prague. Great hotel, location with helpful and friendly staff. Rooms were clean and spacious nice little touches of robes, slippers, tea and coffee facilities and complimentary refillable mini bar with soft drinks. Great location just a few minutes from the square in the old town. The hotel does have renovation work taking place at the front of the hotel but this did not disturb our stay, the only downside was that there was no bar in the hotel whilst this was being completed. The breakfast in the hotel was exceptional with anything you could want including freshly made breads and pastries, great coffees and would even make specialised juice fresh on request. We were there for my partners birthday and it was such a lovely suprise for him to receive a personalised note unprompted on his birthday together with a bottle of fizz and cake from the bakery, thank you for making our stay both enjoyable and special.

We had a lovely time in the Hotel Josef between Christmas and New Year. The hotel is very modern and in an excellent position, literally minutes from the Old Town Square. We had an easy check in was very kindly given a box of small cakes from the Josef Bakery on check in. We had room 502 in the Pink section of the hotel. The room was right next to the lift which was no problem noise wise. We were pleased with the room however it was quite boxy and plain. Our request for a street view was listened to and we were thrilled that the hotel had noted that it was my birthday. We had a bottle of Prosecco, a beautiful cake from the bakery and a lovely hand written note. Only a couple of very small things which we did not like, the room was very hot, we turned the thermostat down as much as we could but it was still too hot. The tv had very limited channels so we did not use it at all. The coffee tray had ground coffee and a cafetière which was quite messy. No iron (although I’m aware we could have requested one). We did not spend much time in our room so these things were very minor. We did not have breakfast in the hotel so cannot comment and we did not use the bar either. Overall, the location was amazing, staff very polite and efficient, spotlessly clean. These are things that make a stay memorable.

Wow, this Hotel is amazing. Booked it for Two nights and it has an amazing vibe. The rooms are spacious and you will find most of the things you need in the room. Very uniquely designed and organized. Except the dental and shaving kits and iron box and board are not available . (maybe it's expensive for them) The breakfast is average actually, I'll rather eat outside than give them 20 euros for it. The reception desk is unique, I was attended by Mira, who was a little apprehensive and needed deposit and card details despite of having a card on file (your reservation desk confirmed the booking after I booked it via Expedia, so obviously you had my card on file). No other hotel in Europe has ever asked for my schengen visa copy but Mira had a doubt on me, howcome an Indian afford a four/five star hotel (at least that's what Expedia tells me about your hotel rating). The location is perfect and is close to everything in Prague. Also, why do you assume that if I'm staying solo then one key is enough? At least have the courtesy to ask please. Lastly, to Mr. Bartender and the gentleman along with him with Grey beard (I'm guessing, he's the manager and bar) , if you don't have a draft beer, say it. Don't tell me that it's time you upgrade yourself. I'm sorry but you have no right to talk to a house guest like that. It is my bloody wish to drink draft or bottle. If I can afford to stay in your hotel, I can afford the beer for sure. It's high time you guys realize that you are in service industry. Treating a guest well is your job, don't belittle me. I paid more for the room in one night than what you make in a week. So shut up and be more mannerful next time. Sorry Mr. Manfred Tobolka, General manager. Your poor staff ethics are forcing me to put such reviews. Trust me I loved your property.

I first booked a room at the Hotel Josef just before the covid pandemic. Then the pandemic hit and I was forced to cancel. Three years later I finally made my visit to Prague and got to stay at the Hotel Josef. The hotel is a hip choice in the center of Prague -- perfect for sight-seeing. I chose a Mini Castle Room, ideal for a solo traveler. The room is cozy but offers a spectacular terrace that overlooks the rooftops of Prague. Even better, the hotel will deliver a drink and/or breakfast to your room to enjoy on the terrace. The room offers everything you could want -- comfortable bedding, desk, robes and more. My room came with a terrific breakfast . . . a well-stocked buffet to meet most any taste, which I enjoyed in their breakfast room that overlooks an inviting outdoor space. Hotel staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. I loved my stay at the Hotel Josef and my visit to Prague. I plan to come back -- sooner rather than later.

Great location - 10 mins walk to main square. Breakfast buffet is excellent with fresh coffee and cooked options available. Our room was beautifully decorated in a modern style however there is limited wardrobe/drawer space. Lots of charge points which is a plus. Mini bar is free. Bathroom design is a modern glass cube. The staff are excellent - nothing is too much trouble. After leaving and reconciling our charge we found that we had been overcharged for breakfast, however an email to the hotel was responded to quickly and the error was corrected and refund made to our Credit Card. We would stay here again if we visit Prague in future.

We had the pleasure to stay at Hotel Josef again after a gap of a few years. I already had a very high opinion of the level of services, as well as the rooms and the facilities in general. Five years could challenge these though, but not at Josef. Josef is a modern design hotel at a superb location, possessing all those values of hospitality, which are rare to find now-a-days. The hotel design has been refreshed since our last visit. Our stay was perfect. If I still have to highlight something, then it has to be the staff of Josef, with a ’there is no mission impossible’ approach; the rich breakfast and the clean, aesthetical design. You will be at home in Prague, at home in Hotel Josef.

This is a lovely modern hotel close to the old Town Square. About a 10 minute walk from metro station Namesti Republiki which is very handy as you do not want to be dragging your suitcase over Prague’s cobbled streets for any longer. Our room was great with a complimentary bottle of nice red wine on arrival, free soft drinks in the mini bar. Quality shower with Milton Brown shampoo and Gel.Breakfast is excellent-great choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurts and cold cuts plus your choice of eggs Benedict or omelettes-nice outside seating area too. We originally booked and paid for our room in 2020 but due to COVID/EasyJet cancellation couldn’t visit Prague until 2023.Hotel Josef were happy to roll over our booking for 3 years running-that is great service. Most of all this is a really excellent value Hotel.Highly Recommended
