Grand Hotel with a Grand View
Posted Jan 3, 2017
I had arranged for the hotel to pick us up from the airport. They were very timely and courteous and we arrived quickly. Upon seeing the hotel, you can clearly see that this used to be a palace. The building is grandiose, and the location couldn't be better. There's a tram stop directly outside on an adjoining street making all travel quick. The room i included a living space, a bedroom, a bathroom, and a water closet. Our bedroom overlooked the inner courtyard, and our living room had a beautiful view of the river, Charles Bridge, and Castle District. The room itself was quiet and there was never any road noise present. The bathroom had both a soaker tub/ shower and another shower. The strength of this hotel is definitely the quality of its rooms. If you are planning to watch tv, our only english station wasn't working, but we never tried for long. The hotel provided us with a delicious glass of wine when we arrived. The breakfast was good, but the continental is essentially just a bread basket. You may be better served by going out into the town. The Old Town itself is only a 5 minute walk to the center. Our experience with the concierge was excellent as we recommended a delicious (but expensive option). Be sure to clarify your price range when talking to them. The only real downside is that there are no other activities, spa, pool to do, but the city kept us busy enough and the overall experience of the hotel is one that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.
