... migrated to Australia. She had moved back 10 years ago. It was interesting hearing her story, she got a bit emotional as she told it to us.
Some of the most memorable/enjoyable things we learnt on the walking tour were.
- The Czechs invented the sugar cube & contact lenses.
- Prague Castle never used to be lit up at night, it wasn't until Mick Jagger came to Prague & talked to the Prime Minister about how it should be. Mick ...
... around 7pm to have dinner. Their hostel had advised them that 200kr was a decent price for dinner. Most places around Wenceslas square want 300-500, but we were convinced to try an upstairs (hence, off the square) place that used the same kitchen as their downstairs neighbour. For 1600kr ($64), we had goulash with dumplings, potato pancakes, other traditional foods (chicken and a butcher's plate like a mixed grill), cabbage, two ...

... my way up to the castle which was perched on a hill. I enjoyed great panoramic views in many directions. I enjoyed the fact there were fewer people here than the main castle. The grounds were more park space than buildings. The most prominent building in the grounds was of course a church, in this case the Basilica of St Peter and St Paul, unfortunately it was closed so I didn’t get a look inside.
After leaving here ...

Historical Traveler Reviews City Club Hotel Prague
Married couple who stayed at the City Club for two nights B&B, 5th & 6th September.
Stayed for a long weekend there for my birthday recently and I'll give you a quick round up.
The Hotel City-Club is a decent 3 star hotel on the outskirts of the main part of the city. Rooms are a good size (those at the front can be a tad noisy) with good en-suites. Desk staff very helpful though it takes ages to get your room if a large group is checking in as there's often only one person on the desk and the security guy won't even take your card key to put in your pigeon hole. Breakfast is a continental self-serve with a good variety of cold food, cereals, bread and jams/honey.
Spacious, clean and tidy
Went on a hen night to Prague in April, (we were one of very few groups of girls)!!. hotel was easy to check in although when we arrived all rooms turned out to be doubles instead of twin so we had to have them (comically) separated and by separated the maid meant half and inch! Can be a problem if you dont want to get that close to your mates. Very clean and well kept, excellent ensuite for what it cost. Only downside was some of the girls on reception who could do with a few lessons in politness but night receptionist was great and was always on hand to open a bottle of wine or two!! Overall if you're on a budget holiday with a big group the hotel is ideally located, short walk to town or hotel will glady phone you a taxi. Very good value for money.
Basic City Club.
Arrived 11 am after travelling all night, only to be told we could not enter our rooms until 4 pm. No lounge to relax in. 30 minutes walk to Wenceclas Square. On returning we were given a room in the 'dungeons', (ie. wine cellars) with a small high barred window leading out on to the bottom of a 'well'. So dark we needed the lights on day and night and had to go outside to check the weather. It took two days to get a decent room after complaining, although the desk clerk was sympathetic! Breakfast plentiful but same every day.
This hotel is recommended. The rooms are basic but clean tidy which is the main thing. The staff are friendly and even helped me out with headache tablets after I overdid it on the local brew. It's about 10 - 15 minutes walk to Wenceslass Square which is easy to find from the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.
City Club Hotel - No Problem
Stayed at the City Club end September 2004 with half a dozen mates, no problems at all, Breakfast was basic but plentiful, rooms were again basic but clean and cheap, staff were as helpful as they could be. 30min walk to Old Town Square, 15 mins walk to central railway station. Definitely stay again without any concerns.
Can't Recommend Enough!
having visted Prague regularly and stayed in several hotels in the city, Hotel City Club rates among the top for Value for Money and customer service. All of the group we took to Prague in December 2003 intend to return and stay in the hotel in 2004. The reception staff, particularly the night receptionist, Petra, were extremely helpful and courteous and thier willingness to assist in every aspect of our stay made the whole experience of Prague in Winter and the Christmas Markets even more magical.
