From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
In a city of Gothic spires and Baroque curlicues, the Yasmin is a retro-futuristic option. While there are no fluffy robes or fancy vanities, the 198 rooms have pleasing touches such as a sage-and-sand color scheme, funky light fixtures, and jasmine-leaf motifs, and the restaurant Noodles' furry orange sculptures and silver globes create a Seuss-like atmosphere. Despite its low price, the Yasmin feels like it could cost twice as much, with a great location near Wenceslas Square and excellent service. One exception is the extortionate $35 charge for high-speed Internet access.2007 Hot List
