My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at this hotel for our honeymoon. Check-in was easy, and the 24/7 concierge offered us pamphlets for local attractions. We were shown to a spacious first-floor suite which had a large sitting room, powder room, 2 BRs, and a large double-sink bathroom. Everything was clean and well decorated. We were treated to free champagne and faux rose petals on our bed, which were a nice (if cheesy) touch. Bathrobes, slippers, and hair dryer were provided. The hotel staff was courteous and professional. Each day, we received a flyer with the following day's weather report and suggestions on what to do. The concierge also lent us an adapter after we discovered that we'd purchased the wrong one.
PROs: The Pachtuv Palace was great, but its best selling point is its location. The hotel was the perfect launching point to see Prague: just a block from the Charles Bridge, and within easy walking distance to Prague Castle, Old Town, New Town, and pretty much every sight worth seeing in the city. The location can't be beat.
CONs: As others have mentioned, the tub/shower combination is a bit awkward, and guests should be careful when stepping out of the high tub, as it can be slippery. The bed was also too soft for our tastes, but I think that's a fault with hotel beds generally.
OVERALL: We had a great, quiet stay and would recommend this hotel without reservation.
