    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.

    ... restaurant that Andy found on Yelp called Purkmistr. They made their own beer, as well as served traditional Czech food. It was all very good! Andy and I both tried a beer sampler, which was a good way to try all the types of beer that they produced. We all agreed that it was a good lunch choice on our way out of the Czech Republic. Our drive back to Ulm ended up being a much smoother one than on the way to Prague, as we hit no traffic - yay! When we arrived back in ...

Tomorrow morning we have a long ride to Krakow. My research seems to indicate that in the Czech Republic (unlike Austria), motorcycles don't need the vigrette in order to use the motorways - so we might use some of the motorways here and there to bring the length of the ride down a ...

    Because we had eaten so much we didn't feel like walking any more, so we sat for a while over coffee in a shopping centre, watching the world go by. Looking at the shops, there seems to be plenty of money around.

    We walked across to the Josefov, and had a quick look at Europe's oldest surviving Jewish Cemetery. Close to this precinct were several streets of luxury shops and restaurants, and a different class of tourist.

    We walked beside ...

    ... statues on either side of the walk way. There were many vendors set up on the bridge selling, souvenirs, paintings, hand made crafts and tourist stuff. And there was an organ grinder without a live monkey. Possibly all the available monkeys are on strike. He played a number of good tunes and was very entertaining to watch. We really enjoyed our walk across the bridge and once we were across we went to a recommended pub, to have a beer and a snack.
