It was my first trip to Prague, so it was with a little hesitation that I booked our hotel, knowing that it was not in the centre of town. I am now glad that we stayed at the General, as it was far enough from the centre to be quiet, but close enough to walk in (15 mins walk along the river). It also has the advantage that the bus station is only a block away.
The hotel car was waiting for us at the airport, which was great after our long flight from Sydney. A welcome drink on arrival was also very much welcomed.
I cannot say enough about how friendly the staff were. The reception staff went out of their way to help, booking bus tickets, recommending several restaurants, and calling ahead to our next hotel in Cesky Krumlov to confirm our reservation. There was always a friendly smile greeting us at the front door, and the restaurant staff were very happy to go out of their way.
The hotel itself is fairly newly refurbished (2007 i think), and the rooms are very comfortable and clean, a good size with a great shower that feels like you are in the rain. We didn't eat in the restaurant except for breakfast, which was exceptional. Hot food cooked to order, and lots of local cakes, pastries and the normal buffet spread.
I would highly recommend the Hotel General, and if we ever return to Prague I will only stay here. Thank you very much.
