We stayed here for 3 nights in May. My husband had booked it for us as a special treat to celebrate my birthday. The package included a free one hour massage at the sister hotel about 5 minutes walk away and a tasting menu dinner one night as well as roses, champagne and a box of chocolates. The hotel was fantastically situated in a quiet street close a to a lovely park which led to the Charles bridge. The decor was very decadent and our room was decorated in a fabulously over the top Baroque style complete with red brocade walls, one gold wall and a lovely chandelier. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The staff were really friendly, helpful and incredibly polite as well as very welcoming - nothing was too much trouble.
We ate breakfast there every day which was delicious and included a cold buffet as well as a choice of hot dishes such as bacon and egg as well as French toast with maple syrup (although the day I had that, they only had toffee sauce). We used the restaurant just the once to have the tasting menu - sadly, there was only one other table eating there that particular night, which was a shame as it wasn't that atmospheric, although the dining room had to be seen to be believed! Strangely, we didn't get all the courses which were listed in the menu - I think we missed out on one plus the palate cleanser. When my husband added up the cost of the courses we had been given, they were less than the total of the published tasting menu which we had paid for. When the maitre'd was tackled about it, he very quickly offered us a 20% discount on our drinks. However, that still didn't make up the difference so we were then given a complimentary glass of port. We were satisfied with the outcome but thought the whole situation very strange - I don't know what was going on, but it didn't feel right.
The massage at the sister hotel was wonderful - would highly recommend that.
Overall, really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to other people, but just watch out if you have the tasting menu and check you have all the courses that are advertised.
