You can reach the hotel by taking a bus connection to the underground subway and get off at Muzeum Stop. The hotel is located just around the corner of Wenceslas Square and directly across from The National Museum on Mezibranska Road.
When we arrived, the 24 hr. front desk buzzed us in. There's a computer for the guests to use, but it had a very slow internet connection. They had toiletries and drinks for sale and tourist brochures of sites, if needed. The front desk was very helpful with questions, but forgot to tell us about the "Spring forward" time change when we were checking out, but the front desk woman told us we would have plenty of time to catch our flight and we did.
We had the last room on the ground floor at the end of a nice courtyard. We were disappointed that their website said there was a coffee/tea maker in the room, but we were told that the appliances were removed because it posed a fire hazard. The room was very clean and spacious with simple furnishings. The bathroom was pretty big for European standards and we had shelf space to place all of our things. The front desk gave me a hairdryer when requested, but it would overheat and shut off if I set it on high. The beds were comfy. Yet, pillows were flat. Seems like a common problem when we travel Europe so I bring travel pillows. If you are a light sleeper, the subway does roll beneath you and you'll feel the vibrations, but we didn't mind. It kind of put us to sleep. They had motion-security lights, but we felt safe when we noticed that the building behind the hotel had it's lights on at night 24/7. The reason was it housed the local police department. Their windows looked out directly at the courtyard and hotel. Maybe that's why I slept pretty good at night.
Breakfast was included with the room rate and it was yummy and was served in a room just off from the front desk. They had an espresso/cappuccino maker, which my husband LOVED and a variety of hot tea for me. There was yogurt, cereal, eggs, ham, toast, fruit, veggies, tasty pastries and juice, etc. We would stay at the hotel again. It's a no frills establishment that features a friendly staff and safe, clean, comfortable accommodations.
When you leave the hotel, make a left and another left and you are on Wenceslas Square and lots of places to eat. We loved their version of NYC food kiosks, around 5 or so up and down the Square to grab a quick bite or a Pilsner Urquell =) Try the local spirit- Becharovka. It is an Angostora Bitters kind of flavor and it was tasty as it warmed us up while hanging out at the cafes on chilly nights in March.
From the hotel, if you keep going straight instead of turning left onto Wenceslas Square, you can reach the train station in a 5-10 minute walk. If you plan to take the train and explore out of Prague- Warning: don't walk through the park across from the train station. There were lots of seedy characters on the park benches in the morning. I was nervous when we turned the corner and a guy kept staring at us and was spinning a hypodermic needle in his hand. But like all major cities, just be aware of your surroundings. The police did hang out and watch the park from the stairs at the train station. My husband and I didn't have any problems what so ever.
