Very friendly staff. Nice room and nice views. Would love to stay there again. .Thought the price was good considering that breakfast was included and that it was so close to everything. Would have liked a bit more fruit to choose from at breakfast

bad food for the price. breakfast with no variety and poorly presented fruit. just a few little pieces of orange and apple on a little plate, placed on a "bufette" to be shared by all the guests. I tried to have lunch there. asked for a salmon delicacy and it was over-salted, no salmon on it, only prawns and onion.

Perfect Location, friendly staff! Food not so great, but in the mornings breakfast was included. We were lucky and stayed 3 stories up. The street noise was still very noisy, but nice rooms, and comfortable beds. The super was SMALL, smaller than most in European hotels. We would return because of the staff and location.

All the staff were so kind and nice and ready to solve any problem you may have. Food was great. We feel it like home. The only thing not that good is the heating system in one of the rooms didn't work, thus we felt a bit cold during sleeping time.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
