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.

... nothing that we were expecting - being Prague we thought it would be some gothic timeless building, and what I actually thought was the castle ended up being the church! Oops. The castle was a very modern and underwhelming building, but it lead through to the beautiful church complete with some of the most detailed stained glass windows I've seen. It was on par with st Stephens cathedral in Vienna. However because of how ...
... our evening, we made one last visit to Old Town Square. Carriage rides are available, rain or shine and well worth the 800CZK for a 20 minute city tour. The carriage drivers are of the older generation, and they speak English well enough to highlight key points on the tour. One can't help but wonder the moments in time they have witnessed, and how welcoming they are of foreigners today. August 27 - Just because....the departure. Normally, I wouldn't make an entry ...
... Japanese bridal parties. The early morning light makes for great photos, excuse me, digital images.
We had a casual morning, but followed it up with a walking tour of Old and New Town. We walked to the local vendors street market and then up to Wenceslas Square. Heading back to the hotel we stop and have a great pasta lunch in the Old Town. Nap time!
Later that afternoon we attend another concert in St. Michael's ...
... the bridge and did a few blocks around our hostels area. Dave and I were swapping his flannel back and forth so we could both keep warm (what a sweetie!) which was funny. "You can have it to the end of the street, then I'll have it for the bridge, and you have it to the pub" etc! Funny. We ended up finding a pub that was in a basement where we got another beer and had another chat. The convo turned a little D&Mish here, but it was still awesome. We also learnt ...
... Europe-- five stories tall-- which has this amazing room called the ice bar.
It's essentially a room made entirely of ice with ice sculptures. We paid to go inside, have a drink (out of a cup made of ice), wear a parka, pose with the ice sculptures, and own the world from an ice throne. Seriously the best part of the night.
We went to a few other places before coming home and falling instantly on my bed. It was a long day.
