My husband and I recently stayed here for our honeymoon. We booked a suite and ended up staying in the Rudolph II. Firstly, credit to the hotel staff who were very friendly and helpful. We checked in almost 2 hours early and they were very accommodating in that regard. Also, as a welcome, we were treated to not only a welcome drink, but a bottle of champagne! Thank you!
The hotel is located in a small street in the Mala Strana district. There is an embassy just across the road and part of the Kampa park. It is just around the corner from the main street and Mandarin Oriental hotel. Our cab driver found it difficult to find, as he just assumed it was the bigger sister Alchymist hotel (about 5 minutes away).
The outside of the hotel is a simple building, with no ornate decorations, however, upon entering, there is an old world charm. Decorations are beautiful with mirrored mosaic walls and chandeliers. This decoration was reflected in our room, which was very spacious.
Our room had a large flat screen television (with limited English channels) and the essentials of a safe, mini bar etc. The marble bathroom was nice, however the shower head sprayed water in multiple directions, making it almost impossible to have a shower without partially flooding the bathroom floor! Unfortunately, the towels and sheets whilst once being good quality - seemed tired and worn. Our towels had holes in them and so did our bedsheets. This was entirely not expected for a hotel of this calibre. Also, the room does not insulate sound so well, therefore we could hear very clearly what was happening on the street below, as well as at the front desk.
Breakfast was included and the selection was ok. The breakfast was handled by a single waitress who tried her hardest to deliver coffee to all the tables, top up the buffet AND clean and set the tables. Unfortunately, this proved to be quite challenging when the busy breakfast time came around. Beware - cappuccinos are NOT included in your breakfast inclusions (although they are not expensive at 2.20Euros each).
Overall, we were happy with the location of this hotel - and whilst we were given free access to all the facilities of the sister hotel - we never got the opportunity to use it. The front desk was helpful and friendly.
