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.

... group for a couple of drinks, and then they were heading to a club - but we ditched them along with another couple from Melbourne...and we headed to a Rock bar. It was a pretty cool place, played good music, tonnes of people in there although it got a bit hot. They even had the bar girls up on the tables dancing haha, it was pretty random. I saw the ultimate 80's rockers...I so wanted to take a photo of them, but it would've been so obvious lol. They looked like they were part of ...
... climb to the castle again. When we got to the top we had eaten though all our energy and the bars of gloopy chocolate, but we made it! We slipped across the castle square to find ourselves inside the cathedral with our mouths gaping open at the amazing stained glass. We eventually turned away for the calling glass and headed back down the towering ...
... to Prague Castle and enjoyed the grandeur of that before heading back towards our hostel area for a traditional Czech dinner (at least that's what the pamphlet said). We then said our goodbyes to our new friends Imogen and Jess and headed to Budapest.
In this city it was not necessarily the history and culture that we gained but the friends that we shared the memories with. Almost halfway done with the trip already, can't believe it! Onto Budapest and ...
... not too exciting. At night we went out for dinner - I forgot how much I hate people smoking in restaurants! Back to hostel - didn't get a great sleep as the bed was pretty uncomfy and the walls weren't very soundproof - Russian baby next door cried all night!! Day 2 - Went for lunch on Wenceslas Square, probably the most expensive place we could go for lunch in Prague - still cheaper than the UK though! On to the ...
... where the club was. Bizarre and labyrinthine club with several floors and junk fixed to ceiling and walls everywhere.
Very lazy day after late night at Cross Club. Played guitar, looked at photos etc with B and L, Skyped Mum with the girls very shy. Packing heavy bags.
Apologies for the brief nature of this entry, I'm having trouble remembering when I did everything, as all the days are kind of blending into one as I travel.
