    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.

The president has his offices here plus there it is a military site. We see two guards standing at attention, dressed in blue, not batting an eyelid, as young Japanese tourists jostle to take a selfie. I stop to take s photo at a respectful distance and suddenly this women flies in, stands nearly on top of me and in front ...

    Well of course it was fine and sunny in Munich as we waited for our taxi to the bus station. The Taxi was late but we made it with 10 minutes to spare. Lovely comfortable coach, nice and warm and we departed right on time at 10am for the 4 hour 40 minute non stop drive to Prague. The sun soon disappeared and remained hidden for most of the trip and it was still cold and grey when we arrived and were met by our exchange host Leon. It was great to be met by someone for a ...

The hotel Conceirge, Martin, had arrived with a bottle of Champagne. Compliments of the hotel. He said he noticed Geoff was out, so brought it up so I could surprise him. Dude. Hotel concierge points off the chart! Cheers! There is talk of another visit up to Prague Castle tonight to see the city in lights. If we do, I'm ...

    We started the day by enjoying the view from our window, it looks to be a good day so we had breakfast and set out to explore. First stop the old square and once again it is buzzing with life, there were a large number of brides, I think there must have been a multiple wedding. What intrigued me was that the girls looked stunning but the men were in any sort of clothes, but they were all happy. It was great just walking round ...

After a quick pit stop back at the hostel to get my togs (swimmers for those who don't know togs) and went to the Rudas baths which are less touristy than a lot of the others and was built by the Romans and restored in the original style after being destroyed. I loved the baths. It was excellent and if I lived here I would go every week. The pool was a bit over rated, but ...
