My family of 5 (3 teenagers) stayed at the Hotel Jewel for several nights right before Christmas. I have stayed in a number of properties around Europe and the Hotel Jewel is one of the very best I have ever stayed in. It is in an ideal location just a few shorts block from the old town square, Wenceslas square and Charles Bridge - all within easy 5 min walking distance. The hotel is well run, very nice rooms, really great breakfast and very helpful english speaking staff. The hotel has a lot of character and is very nicely decorated with up to date and clean / quality furnishings - not worn out and dated like many smaller hotels in Europe.
Tonci and the other staff went out of their way to help me correct some train tickets issues I encountered when I accidentally bought the wrong tickets to Vienna. He made several phone calls to the train station and took about 30 min out of his morning to make sure my problem was fixed. This was a huge help as I do not speak Czech and his efforts prevented me from having to go to the train station and waste my morning trying to fix the problem myself. Also they gave great suggestions for walks to take through town and places to eat.
As an aside, Christmas in Prague is a fantastic experience. The decorations, Christmas markets and atmosphere in the old town square and around town have to be seen to be believed - better than London, Vienna, Salzburg or Paris. Really magical like you picture in a fairy tale.
When I travel to Europe I try to stay away from big chain or business hotels and try to find local or family run hotels with 3 star quality located in the heart of the old town that include a nice breakfast and have some character. The Hotel Jewel exceeded every one of my expectations - it was an all around 4 star experience at a 3 star price. This was my first trip to Prague, but I will definitely stay in the Hotel Jewel whenever I return. I don't see how I could do any better - the Hotel Jewel is my new standard to compare to when traveling in Europe.
I know this review sounds over the top good, that's because it is. My reviews for the other places I stayed on this trip (London, Vienna, Salzburg, Paris) will not be this positive as each place was nice but fell short in one or two ares. You have found the hotel in Prague you are looking for, so just book it and look forward to your time in Prague…you will not be disappointed.
