“Affordable hotel”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were worn and everything was covered in dust. The soup dispenser did not work. If you are going to stay here make sure you take your own towels with you as the towels have been washed so many times that they are stiff as a brick and aesthetically undesirable. Breakfast is basic but OK.
On the plus side the location is superb, very close to old town, Charles Bridge etc. Our room was massive. I think if I was in my teenage years this place would have been heaven as its neighbors are a cocktail bar and the beer museum( good selection of Czech Beers) and its at a great price if you are a student looking to just enjoy the night life, with a modest budget.
On the last night our room had a leak through the ceiling, but all credit to the hotel as they did not have any rooms available they relocated us to another hotel which was more expensive and they paid for all the excess.
I hope the management of the hotel notices that they have a great staff with a good location and with a little investment in simple things such as towels or changing old and worn materials such as mirrors, shower heads etc it can offer its customers a great experience.

Its a nice hotel. It looks a little bit old, and it smells kind of funny in some rooms, however its ok. Quality=price. The towels are a little bit old and rough. All in all, its ok if you do not plan to stay much in the hotel

We were there 3 times. It is a very good hotel for sightseeing. They have a very good breakfast and parking place for cars (reservation required).
The rooms are comfortable and nice. It is close the the city center, only 3min walk from orloj.

Stated at the bene fir the second time Andrew stating in June 2012.
We booked directly with the hotel and they made this very easy for us and also arranged taxis to and from the airport.
The rooms are very spacious and clean. It's a budget style complex, but because of the location it's well worth the money.
The breakfast is very basic, ham, cheese, pickles, coffee, but due to the overall price it's fine.
The was done building work to the upper floors in January? But it's not really a problem if you leave during the day.
Overall - excellent, and we will return again in summer 2013

Just got back from Prague where we stayed at Residence Bene for 2 days/1night. It's a very small hotel - small reception, small common area, and very small room. The building is outdated and could use some sprucing up. However, it was clean and just what we needed value-wise. Breakfast was included in price, but not very good. We chose it because of of location - very close to Old Town, Charles Bridge, and other tourist attractions. Plus, it has an on-site private garage, which was very important to us, as we heard that Prague has a problem with car theft. We would recommend it to other budget travelers who are not overly picky.

If you are looking for some hostel that looks like a hotel, this is the place, but not come by car. The garage costs 50% of your stay! 18,-€ / Day!!!!
The Bathroom is tiny and not very well cleaned. Breakfast is a fight to have it. Small area to get the food and with just a few places available to seat.
Bedroom is cold, don't come on Winter, frigobar and nothing are the same thing. Old TV with a lot of dust over.
Location is the best thing here, is really good.
This is a good place for whom want safe some money travelling around Europe.

Room Tip: I stay on 23 and it was very cold with a tiny bathroom, so maybe would be a better choice on Summer.
