Booked at last minute after corporate web site let me down so didn't really know what to expect. On arrival (10:30 pm) I was a bit concerned - the reception area is quite small, only staffed by one person. But they were SO helpful. Gave me lots of maps and recommendations, told me i still had time for 1 beer, showed me around the hotel, etc. The room was large with coffee making facilities. The decor was 'classic' rather than 'modern' which fits in with the character of the hotel. There was no desk to work at, but actually that was nice since there was a large sofa (sofa bed?) which was also very comfortable to work on. Wi-fi is free but had a tendency to drop out in the evenings. Location is in a quiet square on Kampa island, literally just off Charles bridge, and it is hard to think of anywhere better. There is a first floor balcony that has some really nice views over the bridge, especially at night. Breakfast (included) is above average, but the restaurant where it is served is great - looks like its an old wine cellar or something with vaulted ceilings.
I knocked one star off for the intermittent wi-fi issue and the bath towels which are starting to show their age - getting towards the stiff and scratchy rather than soft and fluffy, but these are really minor issues and if you are in Prague, this hotel is well worth consideration if its in your price range.
