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.

... the Charles Bridge. He also helpfully drew on a map to show us the direction we needed to take. Pity that the GPS lady ad already been given the correct hotel's address - and she still screwed us up by taking us to the wrong place, not once, not twice, but three times. Eventually (read about 2 hours later) we finally took a punt and turned down a different lane, parked the car, and Connor and I got out and went looking for the ...
... this train makes the over nighter from Krakow look positively gold plated. I am not sure this carriage has ever seen this number of people on it, it grinds its way across countryside getting up such a sideways sway that only the odd straight bit of line stops the train swaying off I reckon. After about an hour we arrive at a regular station, all out and onto another train, this one is a regular intercity and is expected to get us into Linz about an hour after our connection ...
Our tour group caught the flashiest bus any of us had ever been on to Prague this morning. We each had TV screens & ear phones, were offered tea, coffee or hot chocolate & best of all, plenty of leg room! We got to Prague around 12 and took the subway then a short walk to where we are staying. The 11 of us are spread between 4 apartments, so we are in one with another couple, we have a bathroom each and a shared kitchen so we can cook, if we want. After getting settled ...
... tour of some of the city sights. We took a walk outside to find something to eat - walked to the 'old quarter' of town. Really picturesque, historic and amazing architecture all around. We found a cafe to have some dinner and just sat and enjoyed watching the people go by and the surrounding buildings. By the time we walked back to the hotel we were both exhausted and dropped into bed for a reasonably early ...
... a bit more once we got to Prague Castle.
Prague Castle is actually an enormous complex with multiple buildings. Our visit focused on St. Vitus Cathedral which was absolutely stunning. You can see it in the pictures. After this Grandma and Grandpa went with some of the other "slow walkers" back to the bus, while Mom and I walked 2.5 miles across the entire tourist district of Prague. This included a walk across Charles Bridge which was crowded!! It was hard to ...
