This hotel had the potential to be great but it didn't quite live up to my expectations - especially for a 4 star hotel costing £75 a night...
The hotel itself was lovely - very quaint and old-fashioned and in a lovely quiet area. The staff were always friendly and helpful and also the garden was a lovely place to sit and relax with a drink. The Wi-Fi also seemed to work well.
However, I was very disappointed with the room itself, hence the 3 stars. The room was tiny for a start and very cramped. The bed was the worst bit - I'd booked a double room but got a double bed with two single mattresses and two single duvets on it. The mattresses themselves were so thin and uncomfortable (making my back issues worse) that I had to get up in the middle of the night and pile the two mattresses on top of each other - this actually seemed to help, though I had to be careful which side of the bed I got out of in the morning!
The toiletries were just tiny sachets and these were not restocked after the first day (unlike in every other hotel I've ever been to) and both of the bedside lamps were not working.
Breakfast was ok and offered a bit of choice, I've had better and I've had worse. There was nothing there that made me look forward to breakfast the next day. Also, some stuff seemed to have run out by about 9am.
Overall I was underwhelmed by the hotel and I'd expected to love it - maybe I just didn't get a good room. I wouldn't stay here again purely because the beds were so uncomfortable to me and I need a comfy bed after a day of walking around non-stop. One thing I will say though is that the hotel is in a great location - really close to the shops, restaurants and sights of Prague's Old Town.
