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 …
... no other reason than to see how the next would be served. Drinks with names such as V's Blood, Anti-venom, Gunpowder, and the Guy Fawke's Cocktail (reflecting the lounge's overall "V for Vendetta" theme for you movies buffs out there) were entertainingly delivered in IV pouches and giant syringes or with accompanying magic tricks and impressive fire displays during which all of the lights were completely dimmed in order to pause all conversation and draw the focus of the ...
... the shelf. One would be a medical treatise from 1498 while the next one would be a theological work from 1645. In addition, there were 1,600 bibles or fragments, 3,000 illuminated manuscripts, countless scrolls dating back to 120 AD., globes and maps. All of these items were neatly organized on the shelves and are still actively used by the monks.
After the library, we headed across the hill to the Palace. The palace is one of the ...
... of the world where I can choose how my life is lived. The suppression of a culture is sheer devastation and corrupt to the very core. We moved into town and enjoyed our walking tour. AVON had taken over the Old Town Square and it was wall to wall people. We were warned of pick pockets and took extra care. Our guide is ever watchful of the group ensuring we are safe. She, Petula, is ...

Today we have done a "free" walking tour for 3 hrs. At the end we were to give what we thought was fair.
Have just had homemade pasta, having a few vodkas and enjoying a home for the next several days.
Yes Carol, your youngest is fine. And yes, she has been corrupted while I've been waiting to meet with her.... no more from me.

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.
