my husband and i visited prague with two friends for 2 nights. we originally planned to stay at hotel orion but they were booked and i had not gotten confirmation on a reservation, even after emailing and attempting to book online. the gentleman at the desk at hotel orion was very helpful and arranged for a reservation for us at hotel u krize across town. at first i thought maybe this was a blessing in disguise b/c the lobby of orion was smoky and the neighborhood was more residential than central. hotel u krize was more central and offered "garage" parking (a tiny garage that barely fit 4 cars and my husband scraped our mirror trying to back it into the lift to get the car out of the garage. the attendant said "something to remember us by".) the "4 person apartment" we rented for 65 euro a night (parking was 15 euro a day) had two twin beds upstairs with a bathroom and a pullout couch downstairs. my husband and i agreed to sleep on the couch b/c it was small and our friends are not a couple. we slept with our feet toward the back of the couch b/c that part of the couch was totally sunken in. the first night, the end of my section of the couch buckled under, leaving me waking up with a very sore neck since i had slept with my head on a downward slant and my shoulder in the crack created by the buckle. we were too tired from a long trip and bad night's sleep, too distracted by showing around our friends and too excited to be in the city to consider changing rooms...but i wish we had. the 2nd night's sleep was just fitful for both of us. we were angry and frustrated. when i told the attendant at checkout the next day, he seemed to make a note but i am not confident that anything will be done about the "unsleep-able couch". our friends reported that their beds were comfortable enough. i would not stay in one of this company's "apartments" again without being sure each person has their own bed.
also, you could hear all noise from the courtyard just outside of the windows as well as through the walls, so our neighbors that came in around 5am woke us up and kept us awake till breakfast opened at 7am.
i loved prague but sleeping was uncomfortable and made us very tired to continue our trip into berlin.
