... like royalty then one of the staff drove the four of us to our airbnb. What an experience this was... racing around the streets of Prague in the boss's car while the young fellow talked flat out and gave us information on all things Czech, including giving Dean a language lesson and perfecting his Czech accent!!! We were overwhelmed with the care and concern he had for us and with no expectation of money. At long last he found ...
... behind her tissue. The ladybug flew near her and landed on the wall, she leaned over to look at it and she had a huge smile on her face. When she saw me looking and smiling she returned a nod and a smile back. For the remainder of the ride we both were smiling, for seperate reasons I could assume. It made me wonder if she had experiences with a ladybug so that this made her remember a happy memory like it did for me. Or if she just thought it ...
... fight scene and scared us as they fired the gun and it was full of blanks, but inside, even a blank sounds loud!Then there was a fire show where the belly dancer from before did a dance with fire balls and one of the guys ate and blew fire (this is all inside by the way!) and lastly a sword fight. It was the most amazing restaurant (not to mention I had another great meal of duck, cabbage, and dumplings!)
We decided tackling the castle complex would be a two day exercise. The castle has is origins from Slavic fortifications from the 10th century and has evolved over numerous regimes. It had been the seat of power for the Holy Roman Empire for a considerable period as well as Bohemia and the Czech nation and all it's permutations over the last millennium. Today we did the considerable walk up to the castle, made more arduous by my dodgy directions. Well take the tram tomorrow. ...
No storm last night so we had a restful sleep but around 7am in the morning the van turns into an oven so we woke up early(for us) and decided to get the 10am bus into town. We had bought a 24hour bus and tram pass yesterday and I'm hoping that we will still be able to use it today as I don't thinking have enough money to buy new ones! Too much money spent on beer and ice cream yesterday! Oops! Anyway we got up and sorted the fridge in the van in still running ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Art Nouveau Palace Hotel Prague
Major Hotel Find in Prague
This hotel was everything you could have wanted in Prague. Beautiful and elegant with extremely helpful staff and over the top fabulous Maitre D. For those of you who appreciate Fawlty Towers, he is Basil Fawlty at his best. Rooms were very large and spotless. Lovely bathroom, big mini-bar, robes, slippers, turn-down service, excellent breakfast, bar, restaurant (eat here. you will love it). Located five minutes from Wenceslas Square, 10 minutes from everything. Secret restaurant to try - best in Prague - was in the Radio Free Europe building next to the state opera house five minutes away. Look for horrible ugly building next to opera, then go around back. There are steps to take you under highway so don't risk the crossing like we did. You won't be disappointed!
We went to this hotel from the recommendations from this website. We were not dissapointed. The hotel was lovely. The hotel staff all spoke english and were very helpful.
The rooms were very comfortable and very large. The location of the hotel is excellent and is close to all attractions in Prague!.
We never onced used the public transport as the loaction is very central.
Breakfast was excellent to and the staff are very attentive.
If we came to Prague again, I would stay in the hotel again!
We stayed at the Prague Palace (The Pearl of Prague) for four nights in July 2004. The hotel is perfectly situated near Wenceslas Square and so is ideal for the underground, the shopping and as been mentioned, the Mucha museum.
Enjoyed the Palace
We stayed at the Palace in June 2004 for 3 nights. The location is good - directly across from the Mucha museum and one block from a metro stop. The rooms need a bit of updating but old luxury is still very nice. The room was large, very clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom. We had some problems with water temperature but it could have been the local system.
Our first night the hotel sent us a bottle of Bohemian Sekt and a couple of beers with matching glasses as a welcome gift which was a nice surprise. Some of the food on the breakfast buffet was a bit tired but the staff was happy to bring you whatever you wanted if you asked.
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in April '04. We booked direct with the hotel, and were charged 125 Euro per room per night, including breakfast. We were quoted anything between 125 and 386 Euro per room per night from other firms. The room was very clean and spacious.
Breakfasts were very good. They were buffet style, and included everything you could think of. This hotel is in a great location, with most attractions within walking distance, although there is an underground station 2 minutes walk away. Excellent value if you get the room at a decent price.
Excellent hotel - great value for money
Cannot recommend this hotel too highly. We spent 4 nights here in February 2004. Among the highlights was the exceptionally good buffet breakfast served in a beautiful and spacious breakfast room. Or room was excellent also. Could not fault the location - opposite the Mucha Museum - but very tranquil inside. Will return to this hotel again.
You couldn't get anything better!
Stayed at the Hotel Palace from 1/10/04 to 1/12/04. It was an incredibly beautiful hotel perfectly located in Prague. Short walking distance to everything you would want to see. Rooms were absolutely clean and comfortable. Great size. Overwhelming hospitality. The breakfast that was included was fantastic. The concierge would bend over backwards to help you get that perfect tour or tickets to a local concert. Easy access to the airport. I can not say enough about this place. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. The price was right and a great find. I am so happy with this place that I have recommended it to my family and colleagues. You will love it, I promise. ---Mike in Durham, NC
A beautiful hotel in a wonderful city!
We booked hotel through Affytravel on the internet, and got an extremely good price: 124 Euro per night in a big, exclusive and comfortable room. The hotel has a great location, in the middle of everything; walking distance to the old town and Wenzceslas' square.
The hotel is old, but well kept, and the bathroom was huge - the bathtub had room for two people! This 5 star hotel - with this grate offer - gave us 100% value for money.
Excellent hotel in a central location in Prague. Situated just off Wenceslas square. Couldn't fault it and realy enyoyed my stay there can,t wait to go back. Has Sauna and massage (highly recommend) but no gym. Athough free access to state of the art fitness studio was within 5min walk.I had originally booked into another hotel in Prague but didn't like it. phoned them at 9 a.m. and was quoted price of 160 euros which was great value. Stayed for 2nights. Staff were helpful and friendly and all spoke english, good at booking tours and telling you where to visit how to get there etc. If I asked anything they dealt with it right away. Breakfast was a full buffet with with everything you could want and more, such as cakes and pastries which I left alone.
Wonderful stay in Prague
Very nice hotel. I would stay here again without a doubt. Rooms were spacious, very clean and bright. Great location to center of town. You can walk to a lot of sites, shopping etc.. Excellent choice.
