... but a little hard to eat since it was a leg still on the bone. The smoked pork tasted almost like smoked turkey and was pretty lean. The pork shoulder was basically a big piece of ham - which Josh really liked. We both liked the cabbage, but Josh said it wasn't nearly as good as his great-grandmothers.
Beer is cheaper than anything else to drink so we had beer - even though I don't really care for it. It came out in huge glass mugs, though ...

It is time to do laundry - IT IS REALLY time to do laundry! I find the self service laundry in a mall a couple blocks away. There seems to be only 5 or 6 other people there. No problem except 4 of the 8 washing machines are out-of-order and 4 or the 5 dryers are as well. After spending over two hours and my ...
... to signify good luck and grant a wish, I partook, but will not tell you what it was I wished for, I'm sure you can probably guess considering why I'm taking this trip in the first place. From there we took a tram to the top of the Castle hill and stopped at a monastery that brews beer. I didn't stop to get one, but they were supposedly good. From there we walked around the castle area and St. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Victoria Prague
I read the good reviews for this hotel before I went and I was not disappointed. My boyfriend and I stayed in a large top floor double room. It was always spotless, and had a fridge and a TV (only 2 english channels, but that doesn't matter because the last thing you want to do in Prague is watch TV anyway!)
Good hotel..shame about the staff
This is a good hotel within 5 mins tram ride of centre. Staff very unfriendly, did not smile once. That is the usual in Prague though, the locals are very 'dead pan'. Beautiful city, outskirts awful. Expensive in old town square..£3 for a coffee, completely rip off tourists.
Back streets restaurants good priced, dont believe everyone who says it is really cheap because it isnt.
Anyway, great hotel, nice rooms, quiet except for the middle aged englishman who returned at 3am singing 'engerland no1' in the corrider. I called reception and they quickly sorted him with Russian army style tactics!!!
Breakfast is average..tuna anyone?
Stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights last week (28,29,30th). Booked it through lastminute and got B&B for £25 night (for 2 people).The room was typical travelodge style, but was clean and quiet (more about that later!!), Satelite TV was a waste of time, only 2 english speaking channels CNN and Bloomberg. Buffet style breakfast, cereals, fruit, cold meats, cheeses, 4 types of bread/rolls, hot sausages, boiled eggs, yoghurts, fruit juices, tea, coffee, cakes!!!! quite a selection. The Hotel is on a tram line, the stop is about 50yds down the road - from tram stop to Wencelas Sq. tram stop took 4 mins, walking took about 20 mins. Right, the quiet bit - we were fairly lucky in that we had a room that faced the side street ( see picture ), but we still heard every tram, god knows what it was like in the rooms that faced the main street. There was a tram about every 10 mins, 30 mins after midnight - but, after the 1st night, we got used to the sound. On the ground floor corner is a restuarant/bar that is part of the Hotel - it is called Kure v Hodinkach. Beer was 20CZK (50p)for half litre, typical meal of chicken with veg or pork chops with veg was about £5. All in all, reasonable hotel and restuarant, not too far out of city centre
Stayad here for three nights and we liked this place, even if it was a bit from the city centre. But it was a nice walk to get downtown, so it was really a joy. The rooms were ok. Our room was a bit small, but clean and with a big bathroom and a nice and cozy bed. The breakfast was just ok, nothing to write home about. There is a great pub nextdoor were they serve good czeck food and even greater czeck beer, try it! Overall a good hotel. Would stay here again.
helpful staff very clean,not far from centre ,20minute walk or 5minutes on tram run very regular. Afew bars near and very cheap. The restarant next door does great foodand great drink.If you want a nice hotel at a buget price go here,breakfast is boiled eggs different meats and cheeses cerials plenty of hot and cold drinks very good for price.Room cleaned every day clean towels and bedding we were only there three nights would use it again.

Fantastic hotel in Prague
We spent 3 nights in Hotel Victoria, and loved every minute of it. Hotel was really clean, service great, and only 5 mins on the tram into town (stop just outside the door, and costs only £0.30). Brilliant value for money, cost us just £28 a night (B&B) for 2 people with Easyjet Hotels. Local bars/restuarants were all really cheap! A lot better value than those in town. So much to do in Prague, definately recommend going!
Great place to stay
5 of us stayed for a weekend in Prague & we were very happy with our choice of accomodation. The rooms were clean with very modern fittings & bathroom.
The tram stop is a very short walk down the road (the No.9 takes you into town in about 5 minutes)
There is a fantastic bar that server good food next door to the hotel that we would also recommend. Losts of locals use it which is always a good sign (the cellar bar is great).
City Partner Victoria - reccommended!
Good value for money. We stayed for 3 nights at City Partner Victoria and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were nice and spacious and the bathrooms were lovely. There was a decent selection for beakfast and the staff were very helpful. The location was perfect, 5-10mins on a tram and you're in Wenclas Sq. I'd reccommend this hotel for sure.
Stayed at this hotel in late October 05; we actually found it through a tripadvisor forum recommendation. The hotel is very new; it is in one of those older buildings with a circular staircase, but it has been rebuilt with all modern amenities. The room was well decorated and modern, with comfortable beds, and a small but ultra modern bathroom ( shower only).Breakfast room was bright and the breakfast was typically east european ( including a hot choice)..excellent with lots of choice . Extremely charming hotel staff. Very minor issue was that the hotel was a tiny bit off track.. but the tram very 2 minutes from the door of the hotel.. Tram service is great and we never had to wait more than 3 minutes. also, it was no more than a 10 minute walk into the more central area, for those inclined. Considering what other hotels were charging, this one was great value. Would stay again in a minute.
Spent three nights last week at the Victoria Hotel in Prague. We had gone on a package deal through Austrian Airlines and this hotel looked like the best of the three we had to choose from. It's a small, hotel that you could drive by and not even know it was there.
