      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.

      ... to look at. It was also our first crowded train, however, another Australian couple (Scott and Casey) shared their compartment with us. It was nice spending the 5 hours to Prague having someone to talk to.

      And we also had our first delayed train- less than ten minutes late (but ended up arriving almost one hour late- thankfully we didn’t have any other connections). So it’s not
      just Australian trains then. But the compartments on ...

      ... good job we kept checking! Although it wouldn't been a very cheap journey to Warsaw just a few weeks too late!

      I really enjoyed my time in Prague but I'm very glad the sun came out for the last day so that my memories of it aren't all wet! Prague, however, remains a wintery place in my imagination and I'd love to return - though this time better equipped with hats, scarves and a winter coat!

      ... must have been what they were putting us in search of after all! I think the Use-It Prague office just like sending people on wild goose chases!!

      We spent quite a bit of time in Prague’s Jewish quarter (Josefov) with the remains of Prague’s former Jewish ghetto. There are many well preserved Jewish buildings including synagogues and the Jewish Town Hall with its Hebrew clock that goes backwards. We went into several of the synagogues which now house ...

Fortunately Prague escaped much of the bombing in the war and as a result, there are so many ornate buildings in excellent condition. Construction of a tunnel under the museum as well as a major highway in front, which occurred during the Russian occupation, unfortunately caused one side of the building to subside, hence it ...

      ... I was holding onto it. it was just a long night, I ended up getting about 45 minutes of sleep between the airport and the actual plane ride. Needless to stay I was exhausted but had to keep on going. I always wanted to go to Prague because I knew it was gorgeous, cheap and just a great city and it met all of my expectations. I had a great time there and loved everything about it. Definitely different from all the other cities we've been too. I would suggest going there at some point in your ...
