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.

Back to the apartment for a short break before heading out for dinner. We found a small ...
... around, so we instead headed to the next one. The second pub was on one of the main roads, but because it was underground you couldn't tell. I had a Pilsner and Adam had a lager, then we headed off for our next spot. The third pub was a favourite of ours. It was on the list because of their imaginative way of ordering. They have cards that are different colours to signify to the waiters that you want to order another drink, order a round for the table, order food or pay the bill. ...
... After a free sample of boar sausage and deer sausage, we decided a taste wasn't enough. We shared a plate of 2 sausages, bread, mustard for about $5, plus beer for me and coffee for Mark. Great local food, people watching, listening to excellent live music. Holiday bliss! Other squares we walked through on the way back to the hotel (it was getting near 6 and a bit cool) we saw the Opera House, ...
... unwashed and b) other people have not occupied your seat and refuse to leave for reasons unknown if you do not speak their language. The latter can however be sorted with the support of the conductor advising that I should simply and forcefully tell them to leave. Christmas will never be the same now that we have been to a market full of sights, smells and flavours never experienced before. Europe certainly does ...
I managed to find the little faberche earrings thanks to Clare Doyle for her order which encouraged me to hunt for them in the market.
Tonight we are off to a Vivaldi Concert at the Klementinum it will be slightly different from our music by the river experience. When we followed the river to walk home from the Castle we stumbled on an outside pub by the river's edge with a couple of guys ...
