Delightful hotel with excellent staff !!!!!!!!
Hotels delicious! I was no longer the first time! It was the summer! ! This time I went to Prague in November and of course stayed in this hotel. I advise everyone to visit there, firstly I repeat that there is excellent service. Personnel staff is very attentive. The room is very clean. Cleaned every day!! The hotel is very cozy! The most important thing that the hotel is very warm atmosphere, as if you come to my house. Secondly hotel is located in the center of the city is very convenient to go where the thread! And thirdly there is an excellent cook!

We stayed at Athena Palace at the begining of November. Room was generaly clean and bathroom had a big bath. Guys at reception were friendly and always willing to help and we liked breakfast very much especialy cribs.
Convenient location of the hotel allows you to reach the main strip on the walk (it was just few minutes to Wenceslavs Square) and tram stop with 22 tram (which goes to the Castle) is also near by. Minus of it was that we had to go down to lobby to get whiskey as Minibar did not offer any ... but on the other hand we had nice talk with chaps at front desk.

Stayed at this hotel on one of our many return trips to Praha. The hotel is being refurbished "oct 2009" a point that we where not informed about when booking.

The good points.
The young chap on receiption ,The location? "good for some".Close to metro stop and main tram line "number 22". Good micro brewery just round the corner.

The rest.
As stated, the hotel is being refurbished, however after seeing both a new refurbished room and an old one this hotel would still struggle to be in the same class as many of the other 3 star hotels in prague for the same price.
we where in a party of 3 , one single room and one double room, the hotel advertises both these rooms as only fit for purpose, ie the single room with either single or double bed and a size only for a single traveller, the double room with either 2 single beds or one kingsize bed and a size suitable for 2 people. both rooms where the exact same only difference was the single room was refurbished and in better condition to the double.
The rooms are long and narrow with the beds only accessable from one side , If you stand in the middle of the room you could almost touch both walls.
The bathroom in the older room was very tired with cracked dirty tiles and mirror " the shaving mirror in our room was also hanging off the wall" any tall person will find it uncomfortable to use the showers in both old and new rooms as they are set low in the wall ,no real toiletries supplied by hotel barr 2 sachets of shampoo and hair cap.both towels and bed linen are past their best "our towels smelt of smoke one day"
A safe is supplied at a charge.
The hotel advertises afternoon cakes and coffee in the reception "for a fee", these would appear to be just the cakes left over from the breakfast !the breakfast itself is fine however coffee was luke warm and orange juice was very weak watery type.
The heating would appear to come on in the night however with with radiator built in under the window there appears no way to adjust it up or down
The hotel advertises as being on a quite side street, we were woken every morning aroun 5 am by noise from outside "not the usual tram noise you get in Prague".
I could not recommend this hotel for any type of traveller
