Kinsky Garden - August 2004
My wife and I stayed at the Kinsky Garden during August 2004.
It is a nice hotel in an ideal quiet location. The rooms were were spotless and the breakfast was good. As we tend to spend most of our time out of the hotel this is all we are really looking for.
However, if you want to be in the busy centre this is not the hotel for you.
Having said that it is very close to a tram stop and there are a number of excellent restaurants nearby. The added benefit is that these establishments are much cheaper than those in the main tourist area.
Also the hotel is derectly opposite the entrance to the park and it is a lovely walk to the castle from here. (although uphill all the way!!!)
We strolled to the Charles Bridge in under 15 minutes. It is a pleasant walk, either along the riverside or through Mala Strana. But please note you do not have to cross the Charles Bridge to enter the Old Town there are a number of other bridges much closer, and with considerably less foot traffic.
We intend to visit prague agian in the near future and would certainly stay at the Kinsky Garden again.
Stayed there recently (June 04). Hotel is OK, nice and clean. It is located on the quiet street. However, it is not close to the center. At least half an hour walk to the Charles bridge. My opinion - too expensive, based on the location.
What a wonderful hotel the service was second to none. Especially Jirca(George) the barman and his lovely wife. The hotel was positioned just right not in the middle of things but not to far away. The restaraunt food was tasty especially the frit dumplings. Nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely stay again.
Wonderful Hotel. In a quiet section of Prague, but close to all the major attractions by tram or subway. Very friendly staff and nice rooms. The transport from the train station and to the airport at 5 in the morning was very much appreciated! Nice bar and restaurant on the premises.
Just back from 6 nites at the Kinsky. A great location with a tram stop 1 minute from the door. Several excellent restaurants within a short walk. Have you tried frajitas with bananas and coconut? The Cantina has them. Staff was very helpful, breakfasts were excellent. Cleanliness is above reproach.
Nice place, close to city centre
This is a nice hotel and conveniently located for the centre. It's on the west side of the river, quite close to the bridge to the south of Charles Bridge - maybe 10-15 minutes walk to reach Wencleslas Square.
Breakfast is served until 11.00am, bedrooms are not large but adequate.
Taxi cost from the airport was 550Kc when I was there in Dec 03.

What did I know about the Czech Republic before visiting Prague: I knew that Kafka was Czech, and he created some weird novels. I also used to watch a movie 'Alice' by Jan Svankmajer when I was young, a Czech man who made morbid and bizarre films. Czech is also central European and home of Bohemia, an exotic and wonderful era of alcohol, spiritual enlightenment and fascinating design. I'd also heard that the Czech were famous for their mannequins ...

There are many beautiful squares in Prague that we walked around, the main being the Old Town square Starometske Namesti, with eateries and bars around its perimeter and wonderful old buildings such as the Astronomical clock which puts on a little marionette type show every hour. Like Charles IV Bridge, the square is packed with tourists, and in the middle of July, you can hardly move here. A little more peaceful and with far ...
... we did find it. It stands at the top of a boulevard of shops including lots of well known icons like Marks and Spencer. The Christmas carole, good king Wenceslas was based on this king and what he did for his people, it's interesting being able to connect the real with what I've heard. We were heading back to our apartment for a bit of a break when we saw a market, so headed in, gorgeous fresh produce. We brought some more ...
... because of the sheer beauty of his art. His designs are characterized by warm bold colors with black outlines showing women surrounded by flowers and nature. (A simple google search can bring up his work if you are interested in seeing it.) We also attended a black light show based on Alice in Wonderland. Holy cow was that a very strange experience. They use black curtains and only black lighting to create very surreal scenes. The show only loosely followed the familiar ...
... about the clock, one is that the clockmaker, Hanus, had his eyes put out after finishing his work too stop him from making another. For revenge, he broke the clock and it took 100 years to repair it. Another legend says that if the clock stops for any length of time, Prague will fall. We met back at the church at 4.15 and the students retrieved all of their gear and we walked back to the Czech bridge where the buses were meeting us. Back at the hotel by around 5.00pm. First ...
