We booked direct with the hotel and got a great deal and a fast and efficient communications with the staff. Check in was friendly and easy, and the hotel location was great, very central to the old town square.

This is a good hotel for business travellers, located near to Prague's Old Square (10 minute walk). The hotel is very clean and modern in white and chrome with hints of orange or cerise depending on the 'bloack' you're in. The rooms are small but again, very clean. It all feels very much like a set from Stanley Kubrick's 2001:... More

Perfect location in a wonderful city. The rooms are clean and modern. The buffet breakfast is terrific. Free wifi too! The staff polite and helpful. My conference was at the Intercontinental, about a 5 - 10 minute walk away. The walk was very pleasant as the hotel is in the old Jewish quarter. They added some nice touches, such as... More

Very nice hotel just a short walk from the old town square. Staff was very helpful and the rooms were clean and spacious enough. It is just a couple minutes walk to the nearest metro station as well. I would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Prague.

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
