“Great hotel, great location, great staff, great design”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

So much to love about this hotel! Great staff, helpful and very friendly, wonderful inclusive buffet breakfast with the best home made yogurt that tastes like ice cream, its so rich, and fabulous location. We only took a taxi when we went to dinner wearing high heels. The cobblestones can be killers in high heels. Love the room design and main lobby design, very modern, clean lines, all inclusive wifi and computer usage a plus. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I go back to Prague!

Room Tip: I was concerned when I was taken to my room as it was located very near the elevator. The bellman as...

The staff was so helpful the minute stepped through the door! The airlines had lost our luggage in Munich and we had gone without for a week, these people that work here are the reason we finally got our luggage in Austria! The rooms were awesome and the food was the best in 5 countries that we visited! We will be back! Clean, clean, clean and great location to everything we wanted to see....only one problem, we weren't there long enough! Thanks to all of those hard working employees!

Room Tip: I am sure they are all great!

A great boutique hotel tucked away in old town. Extremely friendly staff who were ever attentive. The rooms are very simple but very well designed. The breakfast spread was fantastic, we had the best eggs Benedict ever. The hotel sold tickets for the tram at the reception and also helped us plan our day with sight seeing at Prague. The hotel is conveniently located in Rybna which makes it very easy to getr around town walking. Prague is extremely pedestrian friendly. One would never have a need to take the taxis in Prague which are known for their notoriety.

I've spent a weekend at Hotel Josef and I must say that this place was the best choice we could have made. Located right in the city centre with sights, restaurants and nightlife in walking distance, it is not just the location which makes Josef so special, but also the great service, nice rooms, free wi-fi and of course the great breakfast. I will definitely return. Until then: thanks for my cap!!! ;-)

We held a business meeting there last week and I must say it was beyond all expectations.
We found it almost by accident as the hotel we usually book for corporate meetings was booked and I am so glad it was - the place is amazing!
I don't understand the negative opinins - the service is great and they do everything to meet your demands.
The staff was very patient and helpful, helping us to set up all the logistics, trips etc, they were so positive and nice even when we had the most ridiculous requests.
The hotel itself is very nice, modern and impecably clean! The design is great - better than some od the well known brand hotels in Prague I have been too. The breakfast was super fresh, tasty and plenty to choose from, the same with lunch.
Everyone was very happy with their rooms (one person that inquired for room facing the patio got rooms changed without a problem at a glimpse).
Apart from that I love the atmosphere - everybody is giving away smiles and helps you with whatever you need. The hotel is located within walking distance from the main square and the Charles Bridge and some good places to visit so everything you need within a reach.
We are definately coming back and I if I ever go to Prague again on private basis - I am also staying there. For me the hotel is A+ . Strongly recommended.

Stayed for a long weekend, 3 nights. Loved our stay - the hotel was modern and stylish and the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a balcony room, which was a good size and had a large regular bathroom (not the see-through glass!) Location was good, was a bit concerned when we arrived and there were a couple of big bars/clubs just around the corner but we weren't disturbed in our 7th floor room and slept very well on the comfy bed. It was about 5 mins walk to the old town square and about 20-25 minutes to the castle.

Breakfast was excellent in the mornings with a good mix of hot and cold options. Would definitely stay again, really enjoyed it.

We checked in amidst heavy downpour and was helped into the hotel by the staff.
We were processed effortlessly by friendly and helpful staff who also helped us confirm our dinner reservations. Checking in was a breeze. The hotel's interior is Chic and modern, clean & bright. The hotel's upgrade to the modern look is great. The lifts are not small and the rooms we were in were a decent size.

The hotel is located in a location 5 min from the nearest metro by cutting across a mall and you can cut across that same mall to reach Palladium which is a huge mall. The hotel is also near to the old town square. There are some mini markets and banks round the corner.

What made a difference for us were the staff who served with a heart. They genuinely seems to want us to take care of our needs and not treat customers as another transaction. This is one hotel I would definitely want to stay in again.
