Though I love the charm and architecture of older buildings, for my first trip to Europe I wanted a more modern hotel. Hotel Josef was perfect for me. It's a short walk to the Old Town Square, Jewish Cemetery and other sites.
The room was located on a non-smoking floor, sometimes hard to find in European hotels. It was roomy, clean and modern. Mini-fridge was great for having soda or juices on hand. The staff was helpful with recommending a restaurant for authentic goulash and also arranging for a car to take me back to the airport.
Though I wasn't a fan of the bright white lobby (again, I prefer character, but opted for comfort this time), it was nice to get back to the hotel and always find someone in the lobby area having a drink or chatting with friend. (A few blocks away is "Bar and Books" a fabulous dark bar where they make an icy cold martini. Definitely worth checking out!)
Easy access to business center to check e-mails (though we had free wi-fi in the room) and to print out boarding passes. Next time I'll look for a hotel in the Mala Strana section, but if you're a first time visitor to Prague, you can't go wrong at Hotel Josef!
