Good location, average condition

On arrival this hotel seems lovely - the exterior of the building is grand just like most of Prague, and the reception lobby is also. We had an attic room, 503. It was divided into an upstairs and downstairs, with our en-suite and wardrobe on entry downstairs and bed and TV upstairs in the slanted-roofed attic. We stayed for three nights.
Firstly, the bathroom light had no switch (minor detail) but this led to the humming of the air vent in the bathroom constantly. The hot side of the tap was cold, the cold side hot. First use = ow.
Secondly, the 'wardrobe' was simply a black rail with 6 ikea hangers, and inconventiently placed downstairs. Largely used as a coat rail.
Most significantly, the carpet needed replacing, the walls were grubby (including a handprint mark on the wall behind/above the headboard...) and an old food stain on our clean white sheets.
Also an inconvenience was the lack of mirror upstairs, so makeup had to be done downstairs with no natural light, in a steamed up bathroom mirror.
No drawers upstairs, instead we put our clothes in a TV-unit cupboard.
Regarding the hotel breakfast, we ate on the first night and there was a fair amount of choice, however both suffered upset stomachs all day following this. Cannot be said that it was definitely the hotel food, however we avoided breakfast for our two remaining days and both were fine.
overall, good price and location and comfortable bed, but its downfall is its awkward arrangement and grubby finish.
