Smetana Hotel (Pachtuv Palace)
Great weekend in Prague!
Great hotel, large/beautiful rooms and very friendly staff. Food was phenomenal! Can get a bit noisy in the wee hours as there are several late night clubs in the proximity, but it's Prague - to be expected.

Not quite 5 star...
A great location near the old town but relatively noise free. We stayed in a suite which was nice but for a five star hotel, I didn't expect the bedroom to be so small the wardrobes were in the bathroom and sitting room; there was no room for a bathroom door so just a shower curtain pulled across the doorway. Definitely detracted from the 5 star feel. Otherwise a nice hotel with helpful staff.
