Others have commented on the exceptional welcome including a drink (better to opt for Czech beer than Czech wine I think!) and it really does get things off to a nice start.
All staff are immaculately attired and deliver service to match. I've had similar levels of service elsewhere, but only ever if I paid at least doubel what this place cost - definitely a very good deal in Prague.
It's not the place to go if you want a huge flashy lobby and actually my (single) room was pretty ordinary, but spotlessly clean (and the bathroom (shower only - no bath) was nicely modelled).
The location worked well for me - a 30 minute walk to the Convention Centre and about the same to the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square.
Free internet worked beautifully and the breakfast was nice - again perfect service - although the Prague tourist video playing in the background was kind of annoying.
As others have said, watch for the rip-off taxi drivers. 80% of the taxi trips I took were rip offs!
