Vintage Design Hotel Sax

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 31, 2010

In the heart of the old town, the Sax is a new design hotel offering excellent value for money. I stayed two nights in a superior room (Junior-suite like) which was quite spacious (corridor, split bathroom, seating area, King bed), with lots of extras (free wireless, DVD reader and even an in-room laptop). An ideal place if you have to work on the move, or prepare/rehearse your meeting.
Staff were really friendly and efficient both at check-in and check-out.

I really enjoyed staying at Hotel Sax and would definitely recommend it to others. The retro design of the hotel is brilliant and the room felt really homely. The bed was extrememly comfortable and I loved the decor. You can borrow a wide selection of DVDs from the hotel DVD library to watch in your room which we took full advantage of. There was also a laptop with free wif-fi internet access in the room. We had room 22 and the only criticisms of the room are that the shower was not ideally fitted and most importantly the bathroom door would not shut (seemed not to fit the door frame properly). We were not too bothered by this, but I think it would bother others and it is disappointing that such a nice hotel should not have sorted out such a problem.
Overall, the service was excellent. Staff are friendly and helpful (carrying bags; helping organise taxis). The breakfast is good value for money and the breakfast room is a great setting. Complimentary afternoon tea and cake was also a nice extra and just what you need after a day wandering the cobbled streets of Prague.
The location couldn't have been better. It is really close to Prague castle and only a short walk from the Charles Bridge that crosses to the other side of town. There is a tram stop quite near for those who want to do less walking.
Overall, a very enjoyable stay at a hotel I would definitely return to.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Sax. The design is very retro and arty but very pleasing and refreshing on the eye. The breakfast and particularly afternoon tea were very enjoyable. After a tiring day sightseeing it is great to come back for a nice cup of tea, cake or canopies. The location is good because it is in the less crowded part and nicer part of Prague. There is a nice wine bar just down the street into an underground cellar. Also if you walk up the hill you can get straight into the Petrin park which is a lovely walk. The service and attention to detail was excellent and I would recommend the hotel if you want something different to a high standard at reasonable prices.

We loved our stay at the Hotel. We had a room on a second floor. While the room was on a small side it was smartly designed, so everything fit well. I liked the location in Mala Strana; it was not very loud or crowded even though you were in the middle of action in just a few minutes walk.
Breakfast was fine, and I especially enjoyed the complimentary tea service, it actually fit in well with our schedule and was a great time to relax and have some hot drinks (it was a bit chilly outside) and process all the sightseeing.
However I do want to mention that some signs of wear and tear are starting to show up. For example leather on the armchairs is really worn, some very minor issues with bathroom, carpeting in the room getting dirty. Right now most of it is just little things, and hopefully the management will keep it this way, since this hotel will not be able to age gracefully, it needs constant “facelifts” to stay modern.

Design Hotel Sax has a great location...very conveniant to go around Prague.

The outlay is very funky and does attract you. Room was a bit small but they had catered to all our requests and it does give you a retro feel.

The breakfast was good but could have been better. However the breakfast area is quite cool.

The major reason we are rating this hotel as average is because of the unfortunate experience we had around the Spa. The staff invited us to use the spa, without telling us that they charge an exorbitant amount of Euros for us to use it. Would have expected staff to clearly indicate at the outset the price for the various facilities they were offering guests.

Dear Guest,

I am so sorry for your feelings about the spa. The rate for using of spa area is written on our internet pages and also in the hotel's lift. We thought that anyone could count on the fact that it is included in the room price. Nevertheless, I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in the peaceful atmosphere.

With kind regards

Whether it be business or leisure, this hotel wont disappoint. Located in a quiet corner of Mala Strana (which is in my humble opinion the place in prague with the most character), it is a great location with superb service and nice comfortable rooms. Not too expensive as well.

Facilities like a self-service printer. Laptop provided in the room with high speed internet. and free tea making and ice facilities, you are never short of anything here. Moravian Wines and smoked salmon for the tea time snack is a must have. And breakfast, where you can choose from a hot dish (eg french toast, bacon) is the best i had during my 2 week journey in central europe. :) I even ordered one morning's breakfast at the terrace. Loved it.
