      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.

      He eventually came back...with no haircut. Apparently he couldn't find the place, even after walking everywhere. So we got him to take us back to the Market but the jumping castle had gone - d'oh!

      It was time for dinner so we went out for our last meal in Prague. Dad had found this Czech Beer Garden so we went there. It was outside but undercover...important because it had started to rain a bit. ...

      ... lot of the old town). At the peak of this area stands the Prague Castle, home to the Prague monarchy and various politicians. It was quite spectacular, with a cathedral in the centre of the castle. The cathedral was somewhat reminiscent of the style used for Notre Dame. The view of Prague from the top of the castle was incredible, it sure is one of the more picturesque cities. After a very hot day walking around, ...

I told her I was after a typical weekend in the life of a Berliner, I'd already seen most of the tourist spots. Saturday 3 May 2014 To the market! A sweet little place with lots of random things to see. Food. Clothes. Knock knacks. We also stopped by the pharmacy to get my some anti-histamines. Then she took me to a big park that used ...

      ... and asked to speak with his manager. He didn’t understand, so I said ‘I want to talk to your boss, your manager, the owner. About the service. The way we have been treated.’ He walked me on a wild goose chase. Upstairs, downstairs, outside and in another part of the restaurant. We reached a kitchen and he went inside alone. He emerged saying the food would be out in two minutes. I said ‘Great, but can I still talk to your manager please?’ He ...
