“The best of everything....”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

My husband recently took me to Prague for a special birthday, and we took the recommendation of staying at this hotel from a colleague from work. I have to say I cannot say enough good things about Hotel Josef. The location is so central that you can walk pretty well anywhere. The hotel itself is very modern, designer and immaculate. Our room was excellent, with a really comfortable bed. The breakfast is itself worth staying at the hotel for alone, but above all this, I simpy cannot say enough good things about all of the staff. My husband and I stayed for 3 nights fom Ocober 11th, and wanted to dine somewhere "special" that first night. We spoke with Tolu on the reception who recommended Kampa Park riverside, and told us to leave it to her to arrange. Later that afternoon she brought glasses of Champagne and strawberries to our room for us to toast my birthday which was a lovely gesture and much appreciated. Kampa Park was a beautiful restaurant, where the food served is first class, and though more pricey than a lot of the restaurants, was a wonderful choice for us to celebrate. The next evening Tolu recommended the Argentine Steak House literally a two minute walk from the hotel, which again proved an amazing choice, and recommended to all carnivores....you will not be disappointed. For our final evening we wanted to go to a restaurant with authentic Czech cuisine. Again Tolu excelled herself, and suggested we go to Apostila. We had not made a reservation, and they were clearly busy, but accomdated us with a smile. The meal was superb. Thank you to everyone at Hotel Josef, especially Tolu and Florenttia ........

Dear AnnaBrighton,

Thank you very much for your review of Hotel Josef and our services. I am very honoured to see that you enjoyed your time here. It was my pleasure to help make your Birthday weekend every bit as special as you wanted it to be. If you ever come back to Prague it would sincerely be my pleasure have you here again.
P.S. I looked up the perfume that has the same name as me! I will definitely have to get it for Christmas. :-)

Best regards,

Tolu Oke

We chose the hotel from tripadvisor. Actually, I did not understand from the comments whether the place is a restaurant or a hotel, since most of the comments talked about the delicious breakfast.
Hotel has very good location, five minutes walk to The Old Square. The rooms are well designed as expected, very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. As written in all comments, breakfast was fantastic.
But, since the hotel consists of two different buildings with a narrow corridor combining them together, you might get lost in either of the buildings.

It has everything: location, great and practical design, good food and excellent staff.

My wife and I had an excellent 5-night stay in Hotel Josef, ending just a few days ago. We loved the design and many thoughtful design aspects (such details as having unbreakable tumblers in the bathroom); the delicious and extensive breakfast buffet & menu; and, most importantly, the pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable reception staff.

Their helpful suggestions and practical knowledge of Prague (and wider area) meant that they were able to tailor suggestions to our particular interests and made our visit to Prague and Hotel Josef the highlight of our trip to date!

The hotel is in the Old Town, a 5 minute walk from the renowned Astronomical Clock! Fresh, clean, bright and chok-a-blok with free amenities (wifi, computer center, fitness center, DVD library, coffee bar) and intelligent, personable and efficient staff, this hotel was an absolute highlight of our stay in Prague. Two adults and one child, we had plenty of space (maybe if you send a mail ahead of time like we did they'll reserve a more spacious room) with an amazing bathroom, re: walk-in shower for party of 5 although we were only 3 and tended to shower one at a time ;-)
The breakfast buffet offered an amazing variety of food, a juice and smoothie bar and helpful staff (they also have a menu with such greats as Eggs Benedict, coffee of the day, special of the day, etc. all included !).
So all in all: great location, wonderful staff, superb room, over-the-top amenities and just a great experience overall. Oh yes, at a reasonable rate!
Should also mention that we used their car service to drive us to the airport: fantastic! affordable and zero-hassle.
So....enjoy!

I travel 100 days a year and i really know what an excellent hotel is all about and hotel josef is an excellent hotel. Located very near city centre on walking distance this hotel is suitable for both business traveller and familly with children. The rooms are very clean, nice and good decorations. The bed is excellent and with a very nice pillow. Checkin and check out procedures are very quick and staff is very friendly and really takes time to help you with your questions. The breakfast offers very fresh fruits like blueberries, strawberries alongside a good intercontinental breakfast. You will absolutley not regret booking this hotel

I stayed here with friends. The hotel staff are incredible. They gave us the BEST recommendations for restaurants and more. I emailed the hotel twice to modify my reservation and they always responded immediately - it was so nice not to have to make a phone call to Prague from the states. The breakfast is INCREDIBLE. Everything is in walking distance. The wifi, gym, facilities are excellent. I highly recommend this hotel.

The Hotel Josef is a great place to stay when visiting Prague. It is close to Old Town and tons of eateries and pubs. Really we can be at the Anatomical clock in 5 minutes. The roll away bed that i requested was in the room when we got there! It is clean and comfortable. Now I will say the beds were extremely stiff but it has been that way our whole trip while in Europe. So it must just be the way.

I would recommend this hotel with out reservations.
