I absolutely loved Prague. When we arrived in, we were passing the train station. The dodgier part of the city. We were a bit worried as it looked like the dodgiest place we'd been yet. When we eventually got to our hotel (trying to find out how to get there via metro plus tram or two trams was a bit difficult), we realised that it was going to be …
... walk to the castle. It was so hot and miserable, today sucked a lot. We walked to the castle which was miles away and when we got there, which I have to add it was uphill, It ended up being ****. We couldn't even go inside the castle, we just walked around it. We saw a church which was up there but I mean I was so over churches by then I didn't even care at all. I was in such a ****** mood I just wanted to go back to the room and do nothing but ...
... up for this club? Brides across the planet! I have not given enough detail about the extreme heat. We were melting all day, puddling in the shadows of buildings, trying to focus our eyes and brains under searing sunlight. When the sun finally set, we were energized and found it funny to realize how much like zombies we'd been all day. Heat zombies. The cool evening energy kept us exploring the cobbled streets until way past ...
... series) is out at the National Gallery at Holosevice (a northern suburb of Prague, also noted for the long distance railway station), but we got a good introduction to his work, and it was nice to be able to buy one or two mementos at the shop.
We then went back to the hotel for a brief regroup, before David met Petr Teply for a lunch meeting with Jakub Seidler (from the Czech National Bank), while Marion went off ...
... see the bits of Prague that we still had to see.
We did a 2+ hour walking tour listed on Trip Advisor which allowed us to make the most of our time and see the areas we had still wanted to see.
Following that we had lunch before gathering some last minute souvenirs and doing some more wandering.
We watched the sun go down over Charles Bridge ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel General Prague
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.
