This hotel is just perfect in every way. The room was great. Super comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom, very quiet. Breakfast buffet was among the best I've had. Service was friendly and welcoming. Location was perfect, about halfway between the old town square and the Jewish quarters. It is simply the perfect base for Prague. At 140 euros, a great value.

The hotel is well located to visit Prag by simply walking around (so called Jewish Quarter). You need approx 5-10 minutes to the old town hall and another 10min to the Charles Bridge. Even walking up to the castle - a nice walk that will give you more time to look around then taking a bus tour.

The staff in the hotel is friendly and helpful. Rooms are modern and well maintained - loved the Nespresso Machine in the room. Breakfast is really good. Liked the possibility to have fresh pressed juice of various kinds (carrot, apple, ginger,...). Only thing: it is really noisy in the breakfast room. Such a shame as this spoils the experience a bit.

We were pleasantly surprised by our recent stay at this hotel. We have stayed at this particular hotel several times. What a big change from 5 years ago. The staff spoke English and very friendly. They greeted us when we came in etc which was not common 5 years ago. Previously they just looked at you wondering what you were doing there. We would definitely stay at this hotel again and for us , the location is perfect. Good breakfast too.

This hote is nothing short of all the good review on the website.

Location is excellent, while in Old Town Square it is away from the maddening crowd. Hotel is very modern and room is spacious with quality amenities. Breakfast is excellent. Juice machines are available and you mix throw different fruits provided to prepare your own concoction. There is a huge selection and you can also order a daily special. Quality coffee unlike those cheap brews you find in most hotels.

Service is great all round and special mention goes to the 2 concierge ladies Mirka and Marketa. Restaurant reservations are confirmed prior to arrival and they are so patient in offering advice to first time travellers to their wonderful city.

It was a totally enjoyable stay and no hesitation in recommending the hotel to anyone.

I enjoyed a quick visit in Prague and stayed at this hotel which provided very friendly service and excellent breakfast. Rooms were nice and clean and I think the complimentary water bottle is a good idea. The location is perfect and I would definitely visit again!

We are 2 adults couples, well traveled and we loved this hotel.
The staff was wonderful and responsive. Location perfect...ten minute walk to the center of the old town. You don't want to be too close because it would be noisy at night. The bathrooms are very modern and well appointed. Bed comfortable. Our rooms overlooked the gardens and we ate breakfast and one dinner outside. We liked it so much that we booked it for our last night as well. When we returned we were greeted as if we were family. The staff couldn't have been nicer.
PS they also have a lovely gym and sauna, which we used. On the first part of our trip we stayed 2 nights, checked out, left our luggage with them and later came back and showered in the gym before boarding a midnight train to Budapest.

Great location and nice rooms but what truly sets Hotel Josef apart is the fantastic service and attention to detail everywhere. Every single one of the friendly staff, when called on, went out of their way to assist in any way they could.

Breakfast at Hotel Josef is an exceptional experience. With a wide selection of fresh and delectable food. From the fresh and flavorful fruits to the coffee, eggs, meats and self server juicer, it had everything. And, of course, the fantastic pastries, ranging from the daily delicious croissants that would make a Parisian blush to the daily specials that Nima, the friendly pâtissier, so expertly baked right in front of us. We were lucky and got to taste some early baguettes as well. Truly a memorable breakfast.
