Clean Rooms, most rooms just have showers. Very close to Budjevoic metro stop (red line about 4-5 stops from central Prague and Wes Square). No pool, no exercise room nothing for kids to do, breakfast was basic but adequate. Hard Boiled eggs, bread with jelly, ham and cheese platter, coffee, tea, OJ. Mcdonalds, pizza place (across the street), Costa coffee is also across the street and chinese within walking distance 3-5 min (turn right out of hotel, right after "Albert" grocery store. There are doughnuts inside Marks and Spencer for 60 cents each and they are half price after 7 PM. Lidl (grocery store) is next to McDonalds (they accept Visa). There is also a "American-ish" restaurant down the street (past the Albert grocery store about one more block) called "Coolna" they have a rack of BBQ ribs for about 9 dollars (US) or 7.50 euros.

This hotel was not the most memorable of the trip, meaning it was not great but it also wasn't memorable for the wrong reasons. It was pretty clean, the rooms were well presented and the reception staff were nice and efficient. Basically if you want somewhere passable with good value for money then this is your place. If you want luxury you might want to look elsewhere. Also although it was not the most central location to the Prague CBD it was only a 5 minute walk to "Budějovická" metro station (6 or so stops from starometska(CBD)).

It's simple: you can get better hotels for the same price nearer the historic centre, more well-equiped in a better region. As soon as you leave the metro station, you realize that you are in the middle of one "Call of Duty Modern Warfare" Scenarios with concrete-made buildings surrounding everything. Rooms are small with no kind small luxury whatsoever. Single beds are rouch, hard and sometimes uncomfortable.
Please, do yourself a favor: stay somewhere else.

I stayed there for nights and this was one of the worst services and lack of style I have experienced in my time, and I have travelled much around for nearly 30 years.

A very unfriendly staff at the reception(all 3 of them) on the edge of being hostile cause you are
a tourist and not a local that speaks czech

Room was small and filthy, with a very small and hard bed to lay on.
An old TV with mostly german and italian channels, no international ones like BBC or CNN f.eks.

Cleaning was bad and superficial, and you get only one towel a day.
And the Cleaner doesnt knock or ring on your door at 9 am when she stops by to do her job,
no..she just walk right in like it is her room. So, put up the "dont disturb" sign if you sleep long
or just dont want your privatelife disturbed without warning.

The bar is open almost whole day, but dont go there if you need a talk with the barman or girl.
Cause after you have ordered your drink, the barman leaves the bar and go sit in another room by purpose. Strange way of being barman, but maybe they just didnt like me..haha.

Breakfast is lowquality goods, but there is plenty of it with a wide variety of food, but you
wont miss it for a second cause most of the things tast awfull or of nothing, not even eggs can they boil. Superhardboiled eggs is what they have and socalled juice that is mostly water with a drop of orangeessens in it.

Location is far away from the center but the metro is just nearby so you can be in the center in 10 min.
Many office buildings in the area and some local shops and stores.

There is free wifi and 2 pc s you can use for free. and the lugageman is friendly.
But that is all I can say of positive things of this hotel.

Overall I suggest you find something else for the same money unless you dont care about a good service and fine quality of room etc.


I will conclude that this is easterneuropean style at its worst.

Good Luck

Reception staff was not the nicest we have met but it was OK, they do what you ask to do but they didnt eager to help, maybe its something to do with Czech culture (I dont know).
Ilf Hotel is high building with normal sized (not too big and not small) rooms, they are clean,
the furniture is good. Bathroom is clean, but the towels are very old almost like a rag.
They dont put shampoo in the bathroom, only small tiny soap, which was OK for me.
Double bed is two separate beds put together which is bad.
Breakfast is average with sufficient choice which you can expect from regular 3 star hotel.
Had one dinner at summer cafe and it was good treat and service was great.
Hotel is situated a bit far from Prague center, but its very easy to get by metro, Budejovicka station is just across the street, and its not more than 15 mins to get to city center.
Overall its good place to stay.
