My husband and I stayed at Hotel Askania for a short city break - 4 nights. We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel with easy access by public transport to the sights. We were not interested in luxury, just basic accommodation in a quiet part of the city. Hotel Askania fit our needs perfectly. It is near Vysehrad and there are two very near tram stops with many lines to everything we wanted to see. The rooms and public areas were very clean. The staff at the front desk were helpful. They had an iron on hand for guests and helped us access the web so we could check-in online for our flight home. They also allowed us to pay the bill with our remaining koruna and put the balance on the credit card. We appreciated not having to bring foreign currency home with us to sell back to Travelex. The smallish room was comfortable, well-cleaned daily, and the hotel quiet. Breakfast was a typical central European continental, adequate but not noteworthy. WeI did appreciate the boiled eggs and crepes that appeared on some days.
The were only two negative points for us. One was the low lighting in the room made it difficult to see what you were doing, especially when dressing for going out because I just couldn't see wrinkles or lint on dark clothing. Nevertheless, the lighting in the bathroom was fine and that is where it matters most. The second thing was the loud television on during breakfast. There was no table in the breakfast room where we could get away from the noise of the television, which was annoying. One morning we thought we would be spared because we were the only ones in the breakfast room and my husband turned the television off. Unfortunately, the server just turned it back on again. I have to say that Hotel Askania is not alone in having this flaw. It has been our experience that so many lowish to mid-range hotels have this feature during breakfast that it seems nearly impossible to avoid it.
