This is an excellent choice for a hotel in Prague. It is located on a quiet little street, just a short walk from all the hustle and bustle of the Charles Bridge and within walking distance (unless you don't like to walk) of all the major sights. The concierge and the rest of the staff is excellent. Making arrangements for transportation, finding out about evening events, arranging for tour guides etc. is handled easily and graciously. I hired a guide through the hotel for a half day tour of the Jewish quarter and Old Town, and she was excellent. For 900 crowns/hour I highly recommend this. My pick up at the train station went smoothly.
My room was quite comfortable and the beams were charming, but it was a bit cave-like. The room was split level, and if you have trouble with stairs, you might want to specify at the time of reservation that you need a room on one level. The room only had one very small window high up. You couldn't even reach it, and it let in very little light anyway. Fortunately, I didn't come to Prague to stay in my room. Turndown service was good, and the fresh fruit was much appreciated. However, I think I would prefer free wifi access, at least in the public areas, to being greeted with a glass of iced tea on a tray and in room check in. The lobby area is nondescript and somewhat claustrophobic feeling, but this is probably a function of the age of the building. An A+ for serenity, location, and service, but a few details (wifi, natural light) could be better.
