After reading the reviews, I was a bit apprehensive, but the location and price made me choose it.
Here's the rundown:
Front Desk Staff: did not find them rude at all but only dealt with them upon check-in and check out.
Room: not at all like the photos. No blackout curtains. TV was old, and no Enlish language channels (I know I didn't visit Prague to watch TV, but I like to have one on as I get ready or go to sleep). The bed was fine.
Bathroom: quite large yet it had the smallest shower I'd ever seen. I'm not a large woman by any means, and still found it a bit cramped.
Maid service: I was there four days and my room was made up once. The towels were replaced.
However, I was a bit disgusted when I found my makeup bag in the bidet. I suppose she moved it from the sink when she cleaned the sink and out it aside and forgot to put it back. I can only hope that she cleaned the bidet first. Gross.
Breakfast: it never changed but that didn't bother me. Cereal, bread, scrambled eggs, jam, salami, ham, sausage, cheese, cucumber, tomatoes, apples, and watermelon. It was fine.
The bar/restaurant: only went on my last night. I had a great pasta dish and a few drinks. Staff and patrons were quite friendly and I had a nice time with them.
All in all it's a good value for the money. It's blatantly average in every way--- except location.
