The Hotel General is indeed "Grand". On arrival the smiling Doorman took our luggage and Dasha checked us in with the minimum of fuss. She then sat us down in reception and with a welcome beer for me, and a cuppa for my very better half, proceeded to mark on a city map where all the important sites were and which tram/metro to use etc. With the map and guide which she gave us, we were escorted to our room and shown everything we needed to know (how to operate the safe, work the remotes for satellite TV etc.) This exceptional level of service continued throughout our stay. A special mention for Ramy who was so pleasant and professional at breakfast and in the basement bar. As you will have guessed, we rate the service "top notch" so what about everything else?
The hotel is spotlessly clean everywhere. Our bedroom was very elegant with wonderful décor and drapes. The breakfast is buffet with a good selection of what you might expect - cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit (+ f.f. salad) cheeses, meats, breads etc. but also a cooked option of Omelettes (various) and scrambled eggs (various) Try scrambled eggs with smoked salmon - the best I have ever tasted. Wonderful bar in the basement. We dined out each evening but, judging by breakfast, I am sure dinner would be quite special. As for location, (there are several eateries nearby) we caught the tram in to the centre (Tram stop 5 minutes walk) but also walked in one day 15 -20 minutes along the river if you walk at a steady pace or, as we did, take a few pictures and amble along 30 minutes.
We would go to Prague again it is so wonderful. Would we stay at the Hotel General again? - definitely!
