Next onto lunch which was again an amazing veggie culinary experience with Setian Gyros and veggie kebabs.
After lunch we went to the famous Charles River with incredible views of the city. There was this cross on the bridge with Hebrew around it. Something we had never seen. The golden Hebrew text on the crucifix was added in 1696. In 1696, the Prague authorities accused a local Jewish leader, one Elias Backoffen, of blasphemy. As his ...

Good Morning Dad! So we pretty much slept this day away. I woke up went online and surfed for a bit then fell asleep. Nadzha did the same thing except kept herself hydrated and kept drinking tea. When we did wake up and get out of bed, it was late afternoon. We mucked around some more then by 6pm we left the apartment. I had read some reviews that the restaurant next to the hotel sold authentic ...

It was really more of a nightclub, flashy lights, music blaring, but we met a very nice couple from Chicago who were taking a Viking cruise from Nuremberg to Paris. After a Cosmo for me,and a Mojito for Jim, we headed back to our room for our last night in Prague. Wish we had a few more days, so much to ...
... to be here, but did I want to live here? Talking to many other TEFLer's, it seemed like this was the biggest roadblock toward actually staying here. So, basically, if you do choose to be in my shoes at some point, be prepared for that realization to hit you like a cobblestone wall.
Speaking of cobblestones, I need to bring this up at some point while writing this, so let's do it right now. Some of the bigger differences between where I'm from (Northeast ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars David Prague
En principio decir que el hotel en general está muy bien, totalmente recomendable.
Excelent!! Love it
This hotel is very modern, brand new plasma TV with satellite, nice queen bed, quite rooms. Everything smells like new still. Nice people working there, very close by to the river. Great place to stay and walk to main attractions. This hotel is as nice as the 4 Seasons in Prague and the price is even better. Very affordable.
The breakfast is included. Great food, many selections.
Don't hesitate, this is a great place to stay. I stayed there for 10 days and enjoy it a lot.
It's a mystery why such a great hotel is so cheap. Well deserves its four stars. Good connection to airport via no. 100 bus and yellow metro line. Beautiful exterior. Interior recently refurbished - everything looks brand new but has some nice older features preserved. Big rooms - simple, modern and stylish, big double beds, flat screen TV on wall, great bathrooms, spotlessly clean. Well above average hot and cold buffet breakfast. Free Internet in lobby. Location looks a bit away from the tourist centres, but it's not as far as it looks, it's a nice riverside walk to the Charles Bridge, and tram and metro stops are nearby. Polite and helpful staff with good English. I've really got to nit-pick to find anything negative: the lobby is a "smoking area" so it really stinks, and you have to walk through it to get to the lift and then try to hold your breath until the lift arrives - it would be better if the "smoking area" was a side room somewhere, or better yet, outside.
The Hotel David is a truly four/five star hotel about five minutes walk from the centre of prague and its many, many attractions. Tucked away from most of the noise of the city it offers excellent quality accommodation in good sized rooms with all facilities. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have experienced. I slept well, the shower is powerful and I felt safe and secure the whole time. The rooms were cleaned immaculately.
Great newly opened hotel
I have been to Prague a total of 6 times and Hotel David is by far the best hotel I have tried. I am a design buff (meaning I for instance love The Cumberland in London that some other might find something out of the space age) and fell in love with the really cool design solutions. The rooms are sizeable by European standards although some North Americans still might find them just average. The breakfast buffet is excellent and the service level is very high. Despite not being located in the middle of the action (but still nicely located within walking distance), the hotel is well worth the 4 stars and the quality/price ratio is close to unbeatable for one of Europe's most beautiful cities.
Als wir im Hotel ankamen, gab es zunächst eine kleine Enttäuschung. Wir mussten 25 Minuten an der Rezeption warten, während das Personal am Telefon beschäftigt war! Als wir aber dann schließlich eingecheckt hatten, war es fantastisch. Das Zimmer war wunderbar und man konnte bequem zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten laufen. Das Frühstück war sehr gut.
Ich bin 24 und war mit einer Freundin des gleichen Alters für ein Wochenende in Prag, um Sehenswürdigkeiten anzuschauen. Das war wirklich das billigste Hotel, das wir finden konnten. Wir waren also WIRKLICH begeistert! Anscheinend waren keine anderen Freunde im Hotel, sondern nur Pärchen, aber das hat uns nicht weiter gestört. Ich kann das Hotel nur wärmstens empfehlen.
When we first arrived at the hotel there was some initial dissapointment, we had to wait 25 mins stood at reception while the staff were on the phone! When we finally got checked in it was fab! The room was wonderful, it was only a short walk to the attractions and the breakfast was lovely.
I am 24 and I went with a female friend of the same age for a sightseeing weekend, this was actually the cheapest hotel we could find so we were VERY impressed! There didn't seem to be any other friends in the hotle, it was all couples but it didn't really bother us!
I would reccomend the hotel highly!
Loved the breakfasts
we have just returned from a 3 night stay in Prague. We were delighted with the Eurostars David Hotel, which had opened only a few months prior to our stay. The hotel was stylish, the rooms were excellent and the staff were attentive and helpful. The hotel is situated approximately 10 minutes walk from Charles Bridge. We did not need to take public transport and were able to comfortably walk to all the sights which Prague has to offer. The breakfasts were fabulous, a great deal of choice, from cold meats/cheese, pastries, and the usual hot breakfast. Overall we were completely satisfied with the hotel. We would recommend the hotel and would certainly stay there again, were we to return to Prague.
I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Very plush and spotless. Friendly, helpful staff who always have smiles on their faces. Good sized well appointed room with huge bed. Cleaned daily. Hotel around 15 mins walk from both Wenslaslas square & Old Town square. 2 mins walk from the river. Never had to use public transport once during our 3 night stay. Spot on breakfast with both continental & English. Cheap drinks from bar. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone. Check out St Seriols church crypt (just around corner) where the poor czech soldiers were killed during WW2, very moving. For a excellent, cheap meal turn right out of hotel, then right again, first bar/restaurant on right, 2 course meal for 2 & bottle of wine - £13, and good with it.
We stayed at the Eurostars David at the end of March for 3 nights, We couldn't find any reviews before we went so we were very wary of what to expect. When we arrived we were very pleased, the hotel is beautiful, the bedrooms are a good size, our room had a king size bed, plasma tv and a very modern and well equiped bathroom, the bedrooms were cleaned every morning with fresh towels added to the bathroom. The staff on reception were fantastic and nothing was to much trouble. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so I couldn't comment on food but it was freshley cooked each morning and smelt great.
