I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip in June 2012. The reception staff were incredibly warm on arrival and this was a very good indication of how the other services were going to be.

We'd heard the breakfast buffet at Hotel Josef is unrivalled, and we can now see why - they even have the option to make your own smoothie or squeeze your own juice. But there's plenty more to enjoy - friendly service, smart contemporary rooms with external and internal blinds, and thoughtful details like a plug socket in the safe, free... More

We stayed at Hotel Josef for 2 nights and 3 days in the Pink House (it is divided into 2 buildings, pink and orange). Our room was very clean and the heated bathroom was a plus as it was somewhat chilly in Prague that weekend. Can't think of many minuses - very central location, a 10-minute walk to the Astronomical... More

I chose Hotel Josef for its quiet, central location and based on positive reviews posted here. On both counts I certainly wasn't disappointed. It's very well situated, close to the Prague's famous Old Town Square and Jewish Quarter, and only a short walk from the metro stop at Namesti Republiky. Wenceslas Square is a 10-minute walk away.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
