My wife and I stayed for 4 nights/5 days at this hotel after seeing the excellent review on Tripadvisor and Expedia. This hotel was one of the highlight of our trip ! We highly highly recommend it.
The hotel is in the "Andel" area of Prague (Praha 5) so it is about a mile from the old town or the castle. However, the area does boast a huge shopping centre (including a very big Tesco) and ample number of bars and restaurants. The price of food and drinks here is also cheaper compared to the very touristy old town and the Prague castle area. The nearest tube/subway/metro station is only 10 minutes walk away (on the yellow line, also called Andel)
The hotel is absolutely beautiful, well designed and very very good value for money. You can score a very good discount by visiting sites such as Expedia, Lastminute or Wotif.com. We got a very very good deal for a 5 star hotel ! The rooms are beautifully decorated with nice touches such as bath robes, fine porcelain tea sets, slippers, cable TV (there are about 10 English channels out of 500 channels) and luxury bath sets.
We agree with other Tripadvisor reviewers, the service of Hotel General was exquisite. On arrival you are giving a FREE welcoming drink and are shown to your room by the very friendly staff. You are also given free welcoming chocolate and spring water. We had the room with the breakfast each morning and it was a very good choice indeed. The breakfast had a good variety of pancakes, scrambled egg, bacons, bread etc. - absolutely gorgeous ! On the last day, we were even given a packed sandwich breakfast because we had to leave the hotel at 7am. Also, the fast braodband internet was free, which was great because we needed to book tickets to concerts etc.
We highly highly recommend this hotel. Excellent value for money and excellent service.
No hotel is perfect of course. On our feedback form we wrote perhaps more English channels and maybe a shuttle bus from the airport. Despite these slight shortcomings, the hotel is one of the best we stayed in Europe.
