Good Bye Budapest.... Hello Prague ! We are on the train traveling from Budapest to the capital city of the Czech Republic, Prague. Before catching the train, Jim and I head back to the great big market to stock up on some food for the 7 hour train trip. We buy some bread, some cheese, some juicy cherry tomatoes and a variety of fruits. The train …

Yet another flight, but this time to Fairyland.

Final meal, you guessed it extra Red stuff in a tube. With his performance and stinking breath, I ate pretty much nothing.. This cat must have had some coin, because in between scoffs, his nose was buried in the sky shop magazine and he kept the, again ...

Prague City Day 1

After waking up a bit later than normal due to the ridiculous storm we had tried to sleep through, we got ourselves sorted out and headed into Prague on the 11:38 bus. We had a 30 min bus ride to the main tram stop and then about a 20 min tram journey into the city. This seemed quite a long journey considering we were supposed to be only 5km/3miles outside of the city but it was easier than taking the van so guess we can't complain... We got into Prague ...

... up with here) and we decided it would be a great idea to jump right into the heart of the city by doing a underground ghost tour. I never knew this before i got here, but Prague has an underground city! how cool is that.
So our tour started off as a walk around the old town square, where we were told typical Prague ghost stories at different parts. We then went into an old cathedral which lead us down into the underground, where people were held and tortured. It was said to ...

... located above a cowboy steak house) and checked in.

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice and clean the hostel is. My shared room is big and has its own bathroom. But best of all, I get to have my own comfy bed! And since the hostel is on the side of a hill, the view out the window is incredible! This alone made the 10 minute climb to get here worth it. Downstairs, there is a kitchen, computers with free Internet, and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Waldstein Prague

    Overrated and Overpriced

    from

    This hotel was a big disappointment given its 4 star rating and tariff of Eur 180 / night . Spent two nights in a deluxe appartment where ceiling was so low that you had to bend over to walk around the bed and where there were only two tiny windows looking out on to the square . The water pressure in the bathroom was so poor ( just a dribble ) that it was impossible to have a shower. the bath unfortunately took almost half an hour to fill and then was only luke warm. The biggest problem with this hotel is that there is no sound insulation between rooms and floors- was woken on both nights there by other guests returning home late . Their whole conversation and movements could be clearly heard from not just next door but underneath as well. The breakfasts were poor - no fresh fruit just tinned fruit salad and bread rolls stale - staff only cleared the tables once you had left. The breakfast room was in a windowless basement and was crowded and cramped in fact the whole hotel was just too small for the number of people staying - felt cramped and claustrophobic. Acess to the rooms is via an outside staircase and guests required to lug suitcases up four flights of stairs to the appartment and higher rookms as hotel porter only works limited hours. All in all a big disappointment and a most uncomfortable stay.

    Not all rooms are good

    from

    We chose this hotel because of the reviews on this site, and were disappointed with our room. Each room is different (apparently), and ours was rather small, long and narrow - it was rather like sleeping in a corridor with the two beds lined up along one side of the room. The other problem was that because it was on the ground floor looking out onto the courtyard, everyone could see in unless we had our curtains closed. We asked to be moved, but the hotel was full. I got the impression that they would have moved us if they could.

    Waldstein, great location but.....

    from

    A 4 star hotel and the rooms really do have antique furniture, or at least room #4 has. You do need to appreciate the gothic style of it all, though if you're coming to Prague I suppose you will. Our room had a 3 feet high crucifix, dripping blood etc... together with a very old painting above our highly ornate bed of the Virgin Mary & Child. Sounds scarey but it actually works. Service is good & efficient. The well publicised buffet breakfast is a real disappointment for a 4* & not a cheap place, the hot stuff comprised only of scrambald eggs & frankfurturs & the fresh fruit salad was out of a tin. The bread was to die for & the cold ham/cheese were fine. A huge plus is the location, close to the Charles Bridge but in a very quiet cul de sac in an area with good resteraunts.

    New Year's Flop

    from

    Lucky those who get their room bookings honoured by the Waldstein. I booked this hotel on 9/12/04 through Hotels for 31/12/04. Given the positive reviews and a strong desire to be in the Mala Strana area the Waldstein seemed ideal. When we arrived at 1pm on New Year's Eve to check in we were told we were being relocated due to "technical" problems. Other travellers seemed to be having a similar experience as they hung around the lobby waiting for an alternative to be found. No explanation was given as to what "technical" meant other than there seemed to be too few rooms for too many guests. We ended up at an affiliate hotel - the Mucha - which was adequate but in a rather unattractive area on the periphery of the city centre, a 40 minute walk from Mala Stana. A major disappointment.

    Perfect Location

    from

    Stayed there in November 2004.

    The location of this hotel could not be better. The Hradcany & Mala Strana are definitely the nicer side of the River. Nicely hidden away in a quaint and quiet square it is perfect for exploring the Castle and surrounding streets. There are plenty of good restaurants and shops all within walking distance from the hotel. The room was huge and full of character. The Breakfast buffet is very good and the hotel staff are helpful and friendly. The only downside was the acoustics due to the inner Courtyard- the wooden stairs result in every step or door closure by guests can be heard quite clearly in your room. That said we would stay here again but choose a room away from the inner Courtyard.

    Lovely place!

    from

    A lovely quaint hotel in a great location, below the castle and next to the parliament buildings on a small square a mere 5 minutes walk to the Karls Bridge. There is limited parking available in front of the hotel and the reception staff did their best to ensure that we got a space there upon our arrival.

    Our room was on the ground floor with vaulted ceilings, a kitchen and a huge private bath, antique furniture, and charming antique panelling - it was actually more a suite.

    The breakfast is served in the vaulted cellar - a small but unique location and a brilliant buffet experience.

    The staff was very helpful and friendly- even cheerful and the stay in this hotel made the visit to Praque unforgettable!

    Great hotel with character

    from

    Have stayed here three times, a gorgeous hotel with character and a great quiet location. Each room is uniquely furnished - had one with a painted ceiling, another with a pair of canopied beds. Absolutely great! Will definitely stay again

    Couldn't have been happier

    from

    The experience was greater than I could have ever imagined. We had a suite with 2 private baths and several beds. More than enough room. The maid service was excellent- down to the folding of my clothes everyday. Breakfast was sufficient and the staff was friendly and helpful.

    The location couldn't have been better. It is located off a quiet street within walking distance of every tourist site in the Lesser Town area. I would highly recommend this hotel and would even stay there again on any future visits to Prague!

    We had a fab time!!!!!

    from

    We stayed in the lovely Hotel Waldstein in Feb 04 and had a fantastic time. The hotel is tucked away in a courtyard close to Charles Bridge and loads of restaurants. We were in the apartments in the annexe which were just stunning with antique furniture and all mod cons. We couldn't fault the service or the staff and we can't wait to return. Prague is gorgeous and so cheap it's unbelievable. Book into the Hotel Waldstein, you won't regret it.

    Pining for Prague

    from

    Great location - quaint small hotel with a great history. We stayed in a room on the first floor with vaulted ceilings, private bath, antique furniture, and charming as could be. The staff was young and always willing to be of assistance, and loved americans. It's located in a small plaza area with a great (very old) bookstore next store. Also a short walk to the underground and great small restaurant nearby. One of our large suitcases didn't arrive with us in Prague, and the staff was persistent in locating it for us. It arrived at 10:30 PM, and they were as excited as we were when they delivered it to our room. I would highly recommend this hotel.
