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.

When the camp was liberated the people left quickly but the Dr's were very scared that they would spread disease and cause an epidemic so after being free for 1 day they rounded them all up again and took them back to Terezin until they were healthy. Many never recovered and died there.

... it is just the culture. We then walked over to the dance building, which was a building created and built on a slant, to take some photos. Hopped on a tram and headed back to the Jewish Quarter as we wanted to check out the museum there and in particular the Pinkasova section. This was really interesting as it was a building that house 80,000 names of Jewish victims of the holocaust inscribed on the walls of the buildings, The most moving part was the children's drawings which ...
Friday 3rd October Had an interesting first half of the day with German railways again. First hassles were with trains trying to get to the main station. Finally made it with 10 minutes to spare. Then one first class carriage on the train was cancelled so two carriages of passengers had to squeeze into one, all reservations cancelled. Sat on the floor for the first 1.5 hours till Dresden (admittedly a first class one) when many people got off and we were able to ...
But to wrap up Prague in a nutshell, we both thought it was a charming city, especially at night. The main tourist areas are very busy but once you get out of them, there are some really lovely spots to explore. We didn’t notice any pickpockets or other scammers but were vigilant with our belongings. Street signs were easily visible so you couldn’t get lost when following a map. Heaps of places to eat out but they do put down a service charge ...
