Nice hotel, but better if it's not summer.Posted Aug 12, 2013
Pros: It has charm and a warm and inviting staff. The restaurant also has friendly staff and good desserts. We didn't make it for breakfast.
Cons: Just buy some air conditioning units. They're not that expensive!
I read the trip advisor reports about this hotel, but I rolled the dice anyway and lost. Every warning is true, there are five floors and no elevator and there is no air conditioning. We ended up on the fourth floor, but I want to say the stairs didn't bother us or carrying the luggage. We traveled with our two kids, 9 and 11 years old. The quadruple room was comfortable with lots of space. The bathroom was really nice. The staff were helpful and sweet and we liked them a lot. Now for the only negative. It was over ninety degrees, and where all the heat rises in a room near the top. They provided a fan but that was no relief. I liked the hotel, liked the room, liked the price, but its not worth it to be up all night in the heat with only two tiny windows. I would return, but never in the summer or during a heat wave. Oh, and one last thing, it was difficult to find. You cannot drive right up to it and the numbers in the plaza are out of sequence! It is over a restaurant of the same name.

A nice little hotel in a great loction.Posted Nov 10, 2011
Location: The location of this hotel was just about ideal.
We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were exceedingly freindly and very helpful. The room was of a nice size and the bathroom made me wish I could take it home. I have only two complaints. One is the lack of a lobby area but the connected resturant filled in nicely. The lack of a lift required us to haul our luggage up three flight of stairs which was a real chore. If one is your and fit this is doeable but we past those years sometime ago. One of the staff took pity on us and helped with our largest bag. After the first night they moved us down one floor which helped so that we had two flights of stairs to climb rather than three

Convenient locationPosted Oct 29, 2011
Located just under the Charles Bridge, the Golden Scissors is an excellent small hotel. We found the location to be ideal as you are central to all the sights. We stayed in a bedroom sleeping 4 and it was very spacious with an enormous bathroom. The rooms were absolutely spotless, the hotel is also completely non-smoking which was an advantage to us. Be aware that there is no lift in the hotel.

Very small, fashionable hotelPosted Sep 17, 2011
I really enjoyed my one-night stay here. This hotel is very small, more of a boarding house than anything. As such, it doesn't have a 24/7 front-desk or many of the amenities that you would expect of a full-service hotel. But this small, personal feeling is maybe why I liked it so much. The restaurant, for which guests receive a 10% discount, served great Czech food and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The facilities were great. Very luxurious and comfortable although not 100% modern. The location is outstanding. Right off the Charles Bridge and on the most beautiful square west of the river. I highly recommend staying here.
