We stayed over new year in this hotel in Prague and were impressed. It is conveniently located within Old Town and close to all the main sights. Our room had a nice view of the old town and was well furnished with comfortable bed and good quality bathroom and shower (and Aveda products). Breakfast was excellent, with a good choice on the buffet and also the option of a cooked breakfast (the pancakes in particular were great). We were also given a welcome cocktail on arrival. The staff were also very helpful indeed.

On the negative side, we had booked a pick up from the train station, but unfortunately this didn't arrive (which was annoying after a long train ride from Berlin and also the fact they emailed in advance to warn that we would still be charged if we didn't meet the driver). When we explained this to the front desk on arrival they accepted this was an admin error on their part and arranged a complementary transfer to the airport for our return flight home to compensate. Although we had a nice view from our room, it was tempered by the fact that it was next to the lift and, oddly, the floor space around the lift was tiled (whereas the rest of the floor was carpeted) which contributed to greater noise. The bar area also lacked atmosphere and we only stayed there for one drink.

But overall this was a great place to stay and we would recommend it.

We had an amazing stay at Hotel Josef. The hotel is very modern, well-located and the staff was fantastic. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms include an array of Aveda products. The room service was really good too. My husband and I own a business so the business center came in handy if we needed to print something or do a little work. We'd definitely stay there again and would recommend this hotel to other couples and travelers.

Room 703, not as good as the eigth floor as that was fully booked thanks to 'trip advisor' but we had full length windows with a balcony and at 4oC that was good enough, and so was the room, as other reviews the buffet breakfast was fresh and plentiful, poached eggs to order were perfect.
The staff were very efficient and friendly. The hotel is situated just minutes walk from all the nice restaurants and attractions.
We used the Hotel dedicated Taxi's to and from the airport of note a gentleman called Libor was a great help on where to go and what to see especially for the first timers in Prague.
If you want smart, modern, and clean along with good value Hotel Josef is for you. Our Friday,Saturday and Sunday night stay came to just over £300 breakfast was extra.
Our only slight complaint being from the UK was that the Hotel reception and Bar area was still a smoking area, other than that 9/10

Room Tip: Room 703 was a very good room and well appointed for ourselves. No bath but a very modern glass bath...

Having been to Prague a number of times on business, I have always stayed in the same hotel. However on this occasion it was booked out and I needed to find a last minute hotel.

I chose Hotel Josef on a whim, and it was of the best decisions I could have made. On arrival teh staff very exceptionally friendly and their English was excellent.

My room was clean, large and very tastefully decorated. The glass sliding wall between the bedroom and bathroom was quite unique.

Food was good, WiFi strong.

Location is very central and the area where the hotel is located was quiet and safe.

I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone staying Prague.

The Josef stands as the new home for tasteful minimalism in the new Bohemia. British-based architect Eva Jiricná brings a new study on the interior use of glass to her native land with its own long history of the glazier’s craft. There is a daring and dramatic effect in every room. Superior rooms are so bold as to offer transparent bathroom nooks, shower stalls, and washrooms with a full view of grooming activities for your partner to absorb in the main sleeping chamber.

The hotel is very well located, perfectly organized with a nice design and furnishings. Breakfast was also very good with wide selection of fresh food. Would particularly recommend 801 room - the view is worth it!

Room Tip: 801 room is a good one!
