We were excited by the reviews about this hotel and as a five star boutique hotel expected something quite special. We were disappointed. I will start with the good things about our three night stay. The hotel is situated in the central and stunning Wenceslas Square which was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The breakfast each morning catered for every taste and was fresh and appetising. The bed and bedding was superior and the bedding seemed to be changed daily and the toiletries in the bathroom were replenished daily also. For history buffs there is the novelty that the hotel was built to disguise a nuclear bunker underneath that was to accommodate 'high up' military personnel in the event of a nuclear war. Hotel guests could tour that for free and we found it fascinating.There is nothing yet that I described that would give this hotel four, never mind five stars. Now here are the bad bits. Our room was a good size, not overly large and had seen better days. There were no drawers only shelves...a small thing but irritating nonetheless. Very dim lighting which made reading after dark a struggle. On the balcony overlooking the very ugly backs of office blocks there were two half smoked cigarettes not noticed by housekeeping. In the bathroom there was a very large stain on the ceiling and chips on the bath enamel and door. Someone had tried to repair the grouting but had obviously been called away before they had had time to sand it down. I asked a member of staff what level of occupancy they had and he said they weren't full. There were not many people about and so we figured as much. So were we put in a room waiting for renovation or are all the rooms so uninspiring? We enjoyed ourselves in Prague but having booked a five star hotel we were expecting a little luxury. As the hotel has no spa or swimming pool complex we imagined that the stars given would be for a something special not experienced.
