We booked quite a while in advance however when we arrived the room we booked and paid for in advance was unavailable as they were full. We were only told this after thinking we had been given the wrong room by mistake.
The place is quite noisy as I got woken up every night in the early hours. Whatever was above us sounded like it would come through the ceiling.
We were impressed with the breakfst that was included however the collection of dead bugs squashed into the table cloth put us off as well as some mouldy meat on the second day.
The staff were a mixture of helpful and just plain uninterested and uncaring.
Now for the good points, its close to everything while being a nice distance away way too. Right between two tram stops.
The view from our room over the river was beautiful and being woken up in the morning by the duks swimming past really made us smile.
Its not the best place we have ever stayed however it is also not all bad, we were dissapointed that our booking clearly ment nothing and nothing wad done to try and rectify it. We wouldnt stay again.

... means town in Czech) and headed towards Estates Theater where Mozart conducted his opera Don Giovanni. Next to the theater is also the house King Charles lived in, which is now part of Charles University (which is over 600 years old!). Here Filip told us the story of Don Giovanni and also told us about Prague's history of defenestration (he was very impressed that some of us knew what they were- thanks Mrs. Daniels). Wenceslas Square was next and we admired it for a short while, the ...
... the group that Rick Steve's features on his videos and they were really good. They played my favorite Bohemian / Czech symphonic poem by Smetana, " the Moldau " portraying the Vltava river in Prague. Beautiful piece, so seeing as how it was hot, we decided to go down to the island by the Vltava river and chill out, and yes, they sold beer there too ---- so we had one and a orchestra started to play at the bandshell in the park, they were good too.Another great day in Prague ...
... just layers of old architecture from way back, and way way back.
