This hotel is in a stunning location, right opposite the Astronomical clock and overlooking the square, which has a large Christmas market during December, which is an amazing sight out of the windows, which open so you can hear the bustle and smell the smells from below.
The staff were wonderful, very helpful and friendly.
The hotel is actually 2 separate buildings about 200 feet apart. When we checked in the staff told us about the amazing view BUT there was no elevator in the “old side” however the room was on the 2nd floor and not too many steps.
The room was quite large and had two large windows which overlooked the square and the clock, which was definitely worth the climb.
There are lots of restaurants in the vicinity along with souvenir stores and even some high-end retail across the square.
It is a quick 10-minute walk to the tram or the Metro rail and a 5-minute walk to a bus if you are looking for some non-tourist type adventures.
We chose this hotel because it is right in the old town square and was an easy walk to everything.
It looks right at the astronomical clock so gets very busy out the front, but there are lots of great restaurants and bars very close by. The Christmas markets being right out the front door was also very handy and a great way to spend a few hours on a cold winter evening.
The hotel is in the Old Town Square, facing the Astronomical Clock and surrounded by Prague’s Christmas Markets. The concierge (I think Martin) was very welcoming, organised a complimentary upgrade and got us in early which was very kind.
He also gave us lots of tourist info and the best places to see during our stay. Could not fault his service. Our room was 301 and just incredible and had two levels. Breakfast was included and it was delicious. Highly recommended.

The hotel staff were extremely friendly and professional. Breakfast was good value for money. Location was great for visiting Christmas markets.
