“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed 3 September 2008

Where can you start with this hotel?! The Josef is an ideal place to stay for anyone looking for a quality chic hotel which is far enough away from the crowds and still only 10 minutes walk from Old Town Square.

The hotel is very minimalist and would possibly not suit older clientele but is a great choice for anyone looking for a boutique hotel. Having the bar in the foyer is a little bit concerting, and you wouldn't really want to stay and have a drink there as it is a little clinical and the prices are higher than any of the surrounding bars.

The bedroom was excellent, and was very roomy. I wasn't too impressed with the duvets myself, as they were too soft, but no one else in the party seemed to mind.

The breakfast, it has been said elsewhere, is the best in Prague. And I wholeheartdely agree! MASSIVE choice of hot and cold food and drinks.

I'd stay here again like a shot!

If you can afford it, this is THE hotel to stay in Prague. In a quiet street, within 4 blocks of the "action" in old town Prague. I found a deal on Tablet Hotels.com of 3 nights for the price of 2 including a very good breakfast. The rooms and service were 5 stars. I went with my very demanding 9 year old daughter, and for her the best part of Prague was the hotel !! It is ultramodern, so it is not for everyone. If you are in Prague you also have to visit the Cremeria Milano for the BEST ice-cream in the world. My daughter made me go there 3 times a day.

Our stay here was birthday treat for spouse. She loved it so I guess it was worth the price.
Location is just on the edge of a nice bit of Prague to the North and West of the main square- pretty,clean,expensive bars and restaurants and not a stag party in sight. One street further on and it could have been seedy.
The bright, white reception housed helpful staff and also functioned as the bar- not a terribly comfortable place to spend time as it is smallish and populated with the sort of oddly shaped plastic chairs which probably have a Swedish name that you can't pronounce. The Ikea theme carried on into the bedroom which was all pale neutrals,glass and chrome. Spouse loved deep free standing bath and minimalist feel. Less impressed that minimalism extended to absence of towel hook or soap dish. Blinds and roller shutters added to the general theme- the latter seemed to have a life of their own and choose some awkward moments to rise and fall
Breakfast was good - fabulous fresh fruit and eggs/pancakes/omlettes made to order though service was a tad slow.
Prague was beautiful and the Sun shone. We had a lovely time. Nice hotel but it did remind me of Stockholm

Our room was ready upon arrival at the hotel, around 11:30 a.m., which was a nice surprise. The room itself was modern and quite comfortable with a very adequate bathroom. Airco works perfectly. The only downpoint was lack of shelves and wardrobe space, which forced us to more or less live out of our suitcase for 4 days. We could have asked for another room, of course, but we decided to leave it, since we were out most of the time. Breakfast is one of the best we have ever had; huge choice, everything fresh and tasty. Breakfast staff very helpful and friendly, as were staff at front desk and concierge. Prague is absolutely gorgeous and Hotel Josef definitely contributed to make our stay perfect. We warmly recommend it!

My husband and I booked the hotel Josef with 1800 hotels for 5 nights from 17th to 22nd july. When we arrived at check in at 10 pm very tired after we had been travelling since early morning we were asked to take a seat. Then when one of the staff called Luke came to us and offered us drinks "complementary of course " I knew something was wrong, he went on to explain that they had double booked or something like that I dont think I took in exactly what the reason was only that there was no room. We were offered a room at another hotel for the night we would be taken there and collected next morning also we were told we would be upgraded to a superior room and treated like VIPs for our stay. I wanted a smoking room which I had requested on my booking and we were told we could have a third floor room or a seventh floor with a balcony and we agreed on the latter.We went to the other hotel the Jasmin which I didnt really like it was clean and comfortable but when we arrived there was very loud music blaring from somewhere down the back of the hotel although our room was very quite. It just was not our type of hotel. Next morning the car came to take us back to the Josef and to my disbelief there was no room ready for us and and would not be until 1 pm also there was no seventh floor room only a third floor room. When we did get our room it was very nice and comfortable but we were not treated to any thing else and we certainly were not treated like VIPs. But the thing is after everything that happened and the way we were treated I would stay again because it is a lovely hotel and we have stayed there before but I would hope not to have the same experience.
