Prague: The Bridge B&BZborovska 14 | Prague 5, Smichov

When: July 2007
Great location, lovely staff, so-so room...at a good price
We stayed at The Bridge for four nights at a rate of 60 euros per night.
The location is just across the bridge from the Dancing House, a short walk to the Andel subway stop, and a very pleasant 15 minute walk to Charles Bridge via the river. It would suit someone who likes to be slightly away from the tourist area.
Staff waited for our late arrival, and were extremely helpful and kind. English was spoken.
The B&B is within an old apartment building with an interior courtyard, on a relatively quiet street. We were given a very large (2 bedroom with kitchenette) unit on the main floor. The decor could best be described as pre-revolution austere. The rooms were dark and rather worn, but with clean and comfortable beds. The kitchen had a stove but no fridge or supplies, so was not usable, but we didn't need it anyway. The windows were on ground level in the courtyard, with iron security bars. There was a small stand-up shower, mildewed but with ample hot water.
Breakfast was provided in a bright and pleasant room: tea, coffee, juice, ham, cheese, toast, jams, yogurt and cereal set up for self service. Perfectly fine.
I did not see other rooms at the B&B, so I am not able to comment on their condition. I would say that this B&B felt more like a hostel than a hotel, and would suit someone who is OK with trading basic amenities for a good price, location and helpful staff.
