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.

We grabbed a couple of maps and did some quick research to figure out what we wanted to do and how we were going to get it all done in the 36 hours we had arranged to be here. ...

The walk across was very pleasant. Their was a great view back over the old town, to the lesser town (where we were headed) and ...
... peoples remains, but he did explain that the Christian faith believes that once the soul leaves the body, what remains is not part of the journey to heaven. I did know this, but it's rather confronting to see the remains of 40 thousand people used in this way. The next stop was St. Barbara's Church, the walk to the church was so beautiful, just like a picture postcard. Again, no photo will ever do this place justice. The church itself was ...
... can't figure out the transportation services to save my life). Again, the announcement on the tram came on that said "This is the last stop. Everyone must exit". I was no where I wanted to be, so I figured I would go into the market and see if I could grab a beer and enjoy the czech culture that way. So I did, and ended up opening it, drinking some, and then getting on the right train and making my way to the right stop in front of an amazing art gallery I had wanted to go to. Luckily ...
