Stayed for 2 nights in a double suite with extra bed. The beds were extremely comfortable and soft with 2 huge pillows and a lovely small one. Luggage brought up to room on arrival, welcome drinks (one each, including champagne) which had been ordered were brought up to the room. Chocolate on the pillow, complementary slippers and bathrobe which was complementary for use during stay (could be purchased separately) waiting on the bed, a bottle of water on each bedside table, tea-making facilities (including teapot), satellite TV with over 700 channels, iron and ironing board, Toiletries - shampoo, shower gel, body lotion, vanity sets (cotton makeup removal pads, cotton ear buds, white hair scrunchie), sewing kit, soap (with vitamin E and D!). (Although we were given two of each rather than three, all were topped up after use.) Complementary use of umbrella for duration of stay. Complementary use of hotel laptop during stay with free wifi. Double suite came with sliding door which could partition bathroom, wardrobe and full length mirror from the bedroom. This prevented noise and was also handy for privacy changing. Classical music in bathroom via speakers which could be controlled by volume control.
Breakfast was amazing. The scrambled eggs were cooked to perfection, very tasty. Nice buffet with wide selection- breads, cakes, fresh fruit, fruit salad, veg. salad, cereals, sausages, ham, salamis, pastries, yoghurts, cheese. Mustard sauce for sausages very spicy!
Downsides - could hear couple having a good time in room next door the second night . . . for a while. Although I put that down to the guests rather than services of hotel as it could have been much louder. What loses this 5 star it's 5th star from me is the snobby, condescending attitude of (what I assume were ) the head waiter at the breakfast and head receptionist, who made us feel like we didn't belong in the hotel as young backpackers. Every other member of staff was extremely friendly and hospitable. Pity that those in the highest positions let the hotel down. . . .Overall, a wonderful stay and a perfect way to end a 2 week trip of non-stop sightseeing and travel. It was so nice to have the comfort of a nice fluffy bathrobe after a lovely hot shower (at perfect water pressure) and have tea from a teapot. Toiletries were of a good quality, could smell the scent of the shower gel from the girls as they walked past after they'd had a shower the first night.

... better than the official rate, I get interested. I will certainly change $100 for 2,300 Czech Koruna! He pulls out two new 1,000 notes, a 200 plus a 100. I say: “Are these real.” He gets offended, and says: “Of course they are! I have been doing this for 45 years! Are your dollars real?” I accept this at face value (ba da boom), and without examining them thoroughly, I exchange the currency and go back to the restaurant.
On a hunch, ...

i like my roommate, Jean, we're similar in age, politics and temperament, so far. I move from this hotel to group hotel tomorrow. That's when we will room together. Long walk thru Old Prague, wonderful architecture. Ate at an outdoor cafe, ...
... people didn't speak English and when they did then it was with a thick accent! I was really glad I forced myself to come out and see the Prague night scene even if it was for a little bit. My only negative was the endless amount of cig smoke. I grabbed a taxi back and it cost me $3... Yes, Prague is cheap! I crashed on my bed after having a great day that simply made me speechless.

... walls are covered with the names of those lost, and it is a very somber site. Next, we saw the graveyard. The cemetery contains 12,000 graves and over 100,000 people who were buried between 1400 and 1700. It does not look nearly big enough for either of those numbers, but the guide explained that the people were buried several deep in many places. She also pointed out the stone of the famous Prague Rabbis who were buried there, the oldest stones, and a few interesting ones.The ...
... wanted to do in Prague. We got up for our cruise on the river with lunch. That was pretty good, it had some included drinks, I'm getting quite good at drinking wine, WOO!! Plus we got to see some sweet things along the river. I'm still really enjoying seeing all the stone carvings everywhere. So there's a few pictures of picturesque Prague. We headed back into town to check out the main square to wander about. ...
