... to catch the metro. Only four stops later we were in the town square. As we walked out of the station and turned the corner, we were greeted with the most amazing view of the King Wencleslas (sp?) statue at the top of the street in front of a museum. The architecture here is magnificent. Most buildings date back several centuries....and are breathtaking. Our group of nine spent a few hours shopping, sightseeing, laughing and exploring Prague together. It was so much fun! We ...
I walked up the astronomical clock tower before lunch, and the view from here was spectacular. I particularly liked how you could walk all the way around the top, and every few feet there was a sign telling you what historical building you would be able to see from that exact spot.
On the side of the clock tower is the beautiful astronomical clock, which chimes and delivers an entertaining show every ...

... as the palace itself. We had a nice walk around the outside and admired the plants though the windows since there was an admission fee. We don't mean to sound too frugal. We decide not to enter certain attractions mostly based on our gut feeling on whether we would really enjoy it or not. We both felt that the fee to enter was too steep for an attraction of its nature.
Moving on, we took the long way to the main palace. Once again we discovered that we ...

Simon alerted us that the place he was taking us, although free entry, was quite lame, but we were drunk so we couldn't care less. It was indeed free but they wanted us to pay for putting our jackets in the cloakroom. The venue didn't allow people to wear jackets inside the dance floor, or carry them in their hands. What the ****? I couldn't figure out if it was for security reasons or just for appearances, but ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Kinsky Garden Prague
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.
