My girlfriend and I visited Prague at the end of October 2013. First of all, we had a wonderful trip, including the hotel- Prague is indeed as magical as everyone says and incredibly romantic.
We decided to book into the Lindner Hotel due to an excellent package offered by Expedia, and we can most certainly say it was excellent value for money. The hotel is very well presented, with a luxurious, comfortable lobby that you find in all excellent hotels- yet also manages to feel cozy and warm which I'm sure is down to the excellent staff..
The staff to a person are all warm, articulate and incredibly helpful, all hallmarks of an excellent place. We ate once during our 4 day stay and the food was, while not spectacular, very decent for a hotel restaurant. So for us, travelling without expectation or a huge amount of research, I can say that we very much enjoyed our stay and would think about staying again.
Caveat: Unless you have traveled to Prague before, it's important to be aware of the location of this hotel. It's at the top of the hill by Prague Castle, which leads to some fabulous views and also peaceful and quieter. Be warned though- it's a solid 30-40 minute walk past the Charles Bridge and into Old Town etc (essentially Prague City Centre ). There is a tram stop nearby although we treated the walking like a mini adventure with plenty of beer stops....
An example of when this might be a little bit of an inconvenience- we would leave after breakfast for sightseeing, yet come 5.30/6, we'd be relatively tired after walking all day. However the 1/1.5 hour round trip back to the hotel (factoring in getting freshened up etc) does seem quite an effort so we stayed in town on 3 of the nights. Ideally we could have popped back to the hotel for shower, quick feet up then headed back out for dinner/ drinks. This isn't leveled as a criticism more our own personal preferences.
I'd say this hotel would is perfect for business men, families and perhaps the slightly older couple- perhaps where it might not be is if you're a young couple with only couple of days, and you want to cram in both the sight seeing AND the nightlife- as we stayed longer (4 days) it was great for us (and as we mentioned the beer stops....). All in all, very positive experience.
