Really want to saty here at least one night
With my pal Becky from home in the USA, we travel the 8 hours by train from Budapest to arrive in lovely Prague. While on this trip I am no longer hanging out in youth hostels but doubling up with my pal at the American Courtyard by Marriott - with a little help from my friend thanks, Sean! - it is a fantastic stay because we are across the street …
... was to then go up to the Petrin tower, which is called "Prague's Eiffel," eat something there, and then see the observatory that I didn't get to see the other day. I did the first part ok.
The daily pass tram ticket also covers the ride on the funicular to the top of the mountain where the tower is. From the funicular, you do need a separate ticket to get into the Petrin Tower, and it costs an additional amount to use the elevator.So, I instead used the stairs. All 299 of ...
... It was basically a bitter beer, pretty much like my Dad would drink. I can't say I was that enamoured of it. I also had a taste of the young wine called Burcak - basically a cloudy drink that looked like cider and tasted of not much. I was amused to see the grape varietal was Müller Thurgau - stuff I haven't drunk since the '70s.
After lunch we moved on to the post war and communism and then the changes of 1989. I found it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Prague Flora
This was my second stay at this hotel. The first was with my husband and son last August.
My girl-friend and I stayed here on a promo rate for about 70 EUR a night including breakfast. For our money we got a fairly big and well designed room in a crisp new hotel, extremely motivated and friendly young staff that catered to our every need, and a very good, fresh breakfast.
No surprises - but Great Hotel
A new hotel which is 200m from the Flora Metro Station and next to Mall where there are plenty of coffee shops and a few restaurants if you want to eat close to the hotel.
Probably the cleanest Marriott I've ever stayed in
I am rewriting this as the Trip Advisor process deleted my first attempt so this will be brief. We stayed at the Hotel October 25-29, 2006 on reward points. Since we are Marriott Platinum a great buffet breakfast was included in our stay. The hotel was directly across the street from a mall with a easy subway and tram connection. The hotel and mall are new with everything you could want. This was my wife and my first visit to Prague and the hotel with easy connection to Public transport was great. It was only three subway stops from the Old town and the subway was very easy to use. We heard about pick pockets but never saw anything and took reasonable precautions. The hotel has 6-9 english speaking channels on the the TV and also had a refrigerator in the room. The room and bathroom were large and clean. The staff was very helpful. A great visit at the best Courtyard that I have ever stayed at.
I have just returned from a weekend at the Courtyard Prague Flora hotel, and I have nothing but good things to say about the hotel and staff.
We were three couples staying at the Courtyard this september and I really didn't expect what I saw. I've stayed at Courtyards before but this is really the best! It just opened this may and it's super modern and comfortable. I chose this hotel because I read the first review here on tripadvisor of a lady that said that the location is not a problem and spoke very well of the hotel. Ok. She was so right!!! I thank her so much. It was a wonderful experience!
Courtyard Marriott Prague is a newly built hotel nicely located 3/ or 4 metro stops from the city center.
Nice, new hotel
I stayed at this hotel for 48 hours while visiting Prague by myself. It is not in any of the tourist areas but very accessible by metro. The Flora stop is right across the street. For a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe since the stop is so close and it is also inside the mall. I only ate breakfast at the hotel but it was very expensive. If you are looking to save, try some of the food places inside the mall across the street. The room is pretty large for European standards. The bed was very comfortable and as it is a new hotel, it is very clean! The staff was very nice -- they helped me book a tour, gave tips on metro cards, etc.
Having spent the better part of the last few years staying at Marriott hotels on a weekly basis, the new Flora Courtyard provides little in the way of surprises, good or bad. It continues the Marriott Courtyard tradition of catering to business travelers, with rooms designed for efficiency at the expense of individuality, sincere if somewhat clumsy service, and an inconsistent kitchen producing food that ranges from good to disastorous, and is uniformly overpriced.
