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.

... and sights that they like and they had not been to any. They had a map that was 5 years old and the marked down the spot where they had sat to do their people watching. They did suggest an hour long train ride that left from the square and went up to the castle. We did that to get a good lay of the land. It's a little chilly today so a trip to H&M was in ...
... going to the biggest night club in Europe (5 stories high). It wasn't as impressive as I expected. Day 22: Free day in Prague. Started the day by strolling around town and ended up taking the very scenic root up to the castle (may have gotten lost). We where then in the castle grounds and asked information where the castle was..... (Confusing place!!). Had a look around the cathedral and then went and got ...
... the restaurant car, taking photos and trying to form generalisations on the passing visuals. Here goes:
Rusty buildings and metalwork, crumbling masonry, mountains of rubbish dumps. Houses, farm buildings, apartment blocks very old and traditional or soviet-brutal modern. Few large fields, lots of small-holdings, farmlets. As we got more elevation, the appearance of alpine-style chalets. Lots if really tiny ...
Walked back through the gardens and up a stairway leading up to the local Church on the top of the hill in Vysehred and up and down and around until we finally made it back home. Very enjoyable not knowing at all where we were heading but just following our nose which just happened to lead us in the right direction. Beautiful weather. Around 23 degrees.
Paul googled and organised for us to go on a 3 hour tour of all the ...
... br> Of course Bohemia is the home of glass and crystal. Everywhere we went had amazing chandeliers, and the shops were full of the most beautiful glassware. I didn't buy any, even though it is very well priced, as are the shoes and handbags......
It was very hot, and there are a lot of tourists in town, but we just strolled about. I must say that the cobbled footpaths and roads are quite hard to walk on. ...
