It is difficult to describe the Design Sax Hotel. What can I say? Wonderful? Perfect? Maybe unforgettable is the right word. I can affirm without any doubt that Sax was the hotel I got more satisfied to stay in during my life. Staying in Sax for me was not a simple stay, it was an experience. Is Sax the most luxurious hotel? No. Is the most confortable? No. Has Sax the best location? No. Has the best breaksfast? No. Sax may not be the best in any isolated aspect, but when we put everything together, Sax becomes one of the best, great, funny and unforgettable hotels I ever stayed.
Location is not exactly the best in terms of proximity from main touristic places. It is necessary to walk around 15-20 minutes to get the old city. In order to arrive the hotel, is necessary to walk through a steep street. It is not so steep, but it may become more difficult to win it with luggages. I recommend to get a taxi from airport or train station. On the other hand, the hotel is located in a very calm street without any noise and near to USA Embassy, maybe one of the safest places in Prague
We were very welcomed in the reception, we received informations about the hotel and maps and recommendations about the city.
The hotel interior is unique, fully decorated with furnitures and objects from 50's to 70's at most. It has a glass roof that provides natural light. We walked through the whole hotel in order to see all those things. It was very funny, each area had a surprise. Wonderful! We reserved a room with outside windows. There are some other rooms with windows that open for the hotel interior. The room was beautifuly decorated. Bed was quite confortable, we had good sleep on there. Each room has one laptop with free internet. Bathroom could be bigger, but it is not really a problem, just ok.
The hotel offers an afternoon tea, very nice for taking a break. The breakfast had a good variety of tasteful food, very nice. Besides the regular buffet, it is possible to choose some other things from the menu that are prepared on demand. We simply loved the french toasts with red fruits, the best I ever ate, delicious! The breakfast was really good, but it became even better with Elvis Presley, Beatles and some other great names of the music playing on the sound system. We had good times during the breaksfast.
The staff was very pleasant and prompt to answer the requests and most of them speak English very well. Special mention for Jan, the young guy who works on the restaurant during breaksfast and tea. I hope I wrote his name correctly, sorry if I didn't. He is great, very friendly, attentive and I got the impression that he really likes his job. He helps to maintain that lovely atmosphere of the hotel.
Last but not least, we loved, we really loved the small bag of "C's" we received after the check out. Thanks a lot, we made a small but beautiful mini-curtain with them. :-) This was the perfect gift to conclude a perfect stay.
