“Good relaxed place for a comfort stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Good location for business and leisure.
Comfortable room, cosy lobby and restaurant. Plenty interior design details make it more entertaining for guests.
Traditional Czech hospitality + professional service add even more value.
Not least the cuisine was very good in the restaurant.
Spa is Ok though not that fancy and a bit too small.

Definitely recommend for business or personal stay.

Room Tip: If you stay in "Pink" side you have to travel all way through the lobby to the Spa zone wh...

Lovely designer hotel close to old town. Our room was very spacious, with a lovely sized bath tub. The mineral salts and aveda products provided add a nice touch for some relaxing after a long day out. Didn't try the breakfast as there were some great bakeries around the corner. If staying definitely try the Bake House. Only negatives were the wifi was very patchy and kept disconnecting and the tv kept turning itself on and off the very few times we tried to use it. All in all a positive experience and great location. Staff spoke excellent english.

If you're spending some time in Prague and want to be near everything downtown, this is a perfect place. Service is Excellent! Very attentive staff and willing to do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel has a very modern feel, which is a good change to some of the more classic, traditional hotels in old town. Location is great, ascthere are great bars and restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the hotel. Fasty's next door has great burgers...

The only critique that I would give this place is to decorate the rooms a little more. There was a big blank white wall in my room that was crying for some are work ot be hung on it, or a mural painted. It would only enhance the already modern feel/vibe this hotel give off. Value is good too. This will be my new spot to stay when I visit Prague.

Located very near the City Center - we could walk everywhere! The hotel has a very modern feel - but very welcoming. The staff was incredible - so helpful and friendly. Rooms were compact but still felt airy and open and had a big window - rooms had everything you could need.
The staff told us that the breakfast was good, so I realy wanted to try it - just amazing. Seriously, they even had German Chocolate Cake - and you could make your own smoothies - the fruit was the freshest I ever had at a hotel. My husband and I would stay there again. Wonderful value and convenient with good restaurants within walking distance.

We stayed in May 2012. Hope this review is still useful.

Location:
Near to the train station, about 5 mins walk. However it wasn't easy dragging our luggage through the old cobbled streets. To the old town square, it's a 5 mins walk too. Alot of shops and restaurants around the hotel. There was also a very modern shopping mall next to the train station.

Service
Staff was friendly and helpful whenever we approached them for directions etc. We found a note in our room (from the front desk manager) recommending " things to do " and restaurants in the vicinity. We asked for the directions and went to one of the recommended restaurants. We weren't disappointed! Very good food. My hubby enjoyed the roasted pork so much! There was free wifi in the room. However we used the facilities at the business center to print some documents. There were complimentary tea and coffee facilities, pastry and crossiants provided in the morning at the lobby. A good start to our day. And flavored herbal drinks were offered the rest of the day. Very welcoming indeed to return to the hotel and grabbed a refreshing drink after a day of sightseeing. Glasses were cleared promptly too. Kudos to the staff working at the hotel!

Hotel and room
There was a very small but beautiful outdoor garden terrace. I like hotels with nice grounds.. The room is small but clean and with a simple contemporary design. Comfortable bed.

Overall, good location, nice hotel, good service!

It was the friendly staff and service that impressed me the most at Hotel Josef. There was always a smile at the front desk and they were very helpful with my requests for restaurant recommendations and directions. The location was also very good as its walking distance to almost everywhere I wanted to go. I had a double bed and the rooms were reasonable in size but no view from the 6th floor courtyard. Relatively clean rooms with a modern touch to the atmosphere and decor. Beds and pillows were average. The bathroom was acceptable in size and cleanliness. There was a constant banging in the room from another level that went on for at least 3 hours until past 11pm on my last night. The hotel tried to investigate and stop the noise but did not seem to work. They said it was kids playing in another room. The hotel did promptly offered to move my room but I was too lazy to switch. Thankfully it quieten down by 11.30pm. Breakfast spread was excellent but I found a strand of hair twice on my food. I know I'm staying at a 4 star hotel so I did not bring a lot of expectations. Overall, I think it was a decent value and quality of stay for the price I paid.

We stayed at the Hotel Josef as a family. Rooms were great with clean, simple furnishings. Downtown location made it convenient to get around the city. Kids loved the breakfast and staff was very friendly and flexible with kids. The concierge helped us locate some great restaurants for dinner. Overall, I would highly recommend for a family or a couple travelling on vacation.
