We were pretty excited to stay at Betlem Club Hotel given all the great reviews. However, our stay was anything but enjoyable.
The positive points:
-Staff was friendly
-Good breakfast buffet
The hotel is pretty dated, not the building itself but the amenities and the general condition. The room was very uncomfortable. We had a 'loft' on the top floor, so the ceiling was pretty low. The bed was uncomfortable and probably as old as the city of Prague itself, the pillows were wafer thin and the shelf the TV was on looked like it was about to fall any moment. The room we got was advertised as sleeping 4, however, the 2 other "beds" were just couches on which they thew a sheet and a pillow. Not sleeper sofas, regular couches. It might be fine when you're 20, but not when you're adults.
The bathroom is another story. It's not that the bathroom was too small (it was ok size) but the way it was built. There was no shower, only a bathtub with a handheld shower, but nothing to hold the shower head. No shower curtain or anything. You could not stand in the tub because it was build in a corner where the ceiling clearance was about 5 feet. So we had to sit in the tub and somehow make it work. Horrible.
The toilet was even worse. It was built in a corner but the tub was blocking it partway, so you could not sit !!! How insane is that. Some pretty crazy acrobatics were involved in order to use the toilet.
