“good hotel in a great location”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We recently spent two nights at this hotel. It's a little tough to find, but once found, you realize how perfect the location is. It is in a small quiet square just steps from Old Town Square and the astronomical clock.

We had a room (#731) on the third floor. The room was spacious with an enormous bed. The bathroom was one of the best we have ever had with a great shower, tub and beautiful tile. The hotel room also has robes and slippers.

There is a coffee maker in the room, but a Nespresso machine in the public area on the first floor is a better choice. There is also a computer for use in the public area on the second floor.

The personnel at the desk were very helpful and friendly.. The included breakfast buffet was fine. I've seen other reviews that weren't pleased with the breakfast, but we thought it was OK.

Two minor quibbles. There is no lift, so if you have trouble with stairs you should try to get a room on a lower floor. And we initially were told when we went to breakfast that it wasn't included, even though we had our receipt that showed that it was. This was quickly remedied without much fuss. I also read a review that stated that the reviewer couldn't figure out the TV controls. It was a bit confusing with two remotes, but it wasn't that hard to figure out, and why would you want to spend much time watching TV while in a great city like Prague.

We would happily stay here again. The combination of a very good and comfortable room, great bathroom, and perfect location is hard to beat.

I stayed here with my partner for a weekend for my birthday. The rooms (and bed!) are massive and the hotel is 3 mins walk from the centre square in Prague!

Apart from the beautiful buildings, there's an abundance of nightclubs and restaurants in and around the square.

One of the best meals I've had was in the hotel's restaurant. Try it and enjoy! The breakfast served is outstanding for carnivores and veggies alike.

The stay was as comfortable as possible. Couldn't have asked for more. The location of the hotel is just perfect: calm enclosed area, very close to the main square (Staromestska), best and very affordable restaurants. The hotel was very clean and everywhere was spotlessly clean and tidy. The rooms were huge and pure luxury, the same as huge king size beds. Pleasant thing is that coffee machine in hotel is available for 24/7. I will be staying here again without a doubt.

This is a smaller hotel with nice large rooms and free wi-fi which we appreciated. It is also extremely well located next to the Old Town Square in Prague and walking distance to main attractions. Breakfast is served in a next door restaurant and the quality was perfect. Also the reception is in a different building but easy to find and the staff very helpful. The bathroom is large and well equipped. Well worth the stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room on first floor if you do not want to climb stairs.

This hotel is amazing! The rooms are very spacious, the bathroom is huge and the bed is very confortable!
The hotel's staff are very polite and helpful.
Not to mention that the hotel is about 3 minutes walk to the astronomical clock, and about 5 minutes to Charles Bridge.
I definately reccomend this hotel and look forward to staying there on a future occasion.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are very good.

Stayed recently with a group of friends for 4 nights in Merchants Yard. The accommodation is excellent, the beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom very spacious. The residence is in an ideal situation, only a couple of mintues walk to the Old Square.Definitely recommended it.

...a few steps away from Old Square, in the middle of old town and mostly everything you want to visit is walking distance.
Quiet, very clean, very spacious room. Really nice stay.

Only note: breakfast could be better.
