Since we were on budget, we had two options: either to stay at a hostel near the touristic spots or at a two/three-star hotel a bit away from the centre. We were glad that we chose the latter. The hotel was really good value for its price, which was actually about the same at some popular downtown hostels. The room was spacious, well-equipped with a TV and a fridge and generally in a decent condition. The bathroom was recently refurbished, so it looked clean and modern. The bed was quite comfortable, although I found their pillows to be a little unusual (one was big and flat, while the other was more like a tiny cushion) and the duvet smaller than the regular size. They had free wi-fi Internet, but unfortunately, the signal was annoyingly weak in our room. Apart from that, I was very impressed with their free breakfasts, which had a good variety of breads with some fruits and salad, cereals, eggs and sausages. One morning they served something made from liver, which was just tender and delicious. We didn't have other meals at their restaurant, but from the menu, the food price was very affordable. The hotel staff were friendly and spoke English well. They also put the tram routes and time tables on the board at the reception. The area around had nothing much to see, but there were several inexpensive local restaurants, supermarkets and bakeries. One cafe we went in called 'Baretta' had the best apple strudel. The street seemed safe, even at night. The closest tram stop was 3 minutes away on foot. Trams no.24 to Wenceslas Square took 15 minutes (7 stops), while others might have taken shorter time. If you don't mind about that, this hotel is a good bargain.
