... would have the wall repainted white and by the next morning new graffitti would appear.
We then headed up to the Prague Castle, a collection of buildings forming a loose wall of fortress like shapes. We learned that the Rolling Stones played there in 1995, were having a few drinks, lines of coke and some dwarf throwing with the then Czech President and asked why the castle wasn't lit up at night. The ...
... The waiter had been in Christchurch 6 months ago. He described it as 'a city without a heart'. Quite a good way of describing a city without a CBD. Rachel's NZ friends call it a donut city which is also an accurate way to describe the moment the donut needs filling.
We then took the tram to the main railway station to validate our Eurorail passes and to check out where we have to go to get our train at 6am on Tuesday. All sorted and we should be fine and we can get some food ...
... us once again. Maybe it is because Julee made them enchiladas last time... -Sleepy, not sleepy "knock knock" "who's there?" "jet lag" "jet lag who? zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz" We slept in until 2pm yesterday. We just could not pull ourselves out of bed. First we were waking up at 4 am, now we can't get to sleep until around 2 am. Bizarre- Hopefully our bodies will be adjusted next week because I would like to start a ...
Again another early start with a lot of people struggling to get out of bed after last night, (us not included) we eventually jumped on the bus to go to the Czech Republic. After a big night most of us slept on the bus for the first few hours until we hit our first pit stop. After this everyone woke up because of our fantastic meal. Rachel and I had chips topped with shredded meat, called gyros. It's so good it reminded us of something out ...
... has been a pedestrian promenade, though for centuries walkers had to share the concourse with horse drawn vehicles and trolleys. Today, the bridge is filled with mostly tourists walking amongst artists and busking musicians. I last visited Prague in 1999 and it was one place I always wanted to return too. Having said that I was blown away with the number of tourists now visiting the city. My memories of wandering the streets pretty much deserted ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Raffaello Prague
Nice low price hotel
I and my girlfriend stayed at the hotel for 4 days in the beginning of November 2005. The hotel is a charming little hotel about 15 minutes walk form the New Town center. The room where clean and the staff was nice. However we found the breakfast a little small and lack a lot of things. Our room was towards the back yard so it was no noise at night, but I can image there is quit a lot of noise from the cars in the nearby roads if you get a room facing the street. The hotel should also consider changing the doors in to the room because you can hear absolutely everything that's going on in the hotel from inside your room.
Al in al the hotel is ok, and if you compeer it to other hotels in the same price range I think the hotel is a good choice.
Newly refurbished 3 star hotel. spotlessly clean very good standard of rooms and good breakfast, reasonably priced. Only slight downside is it is probably the wrong side of wenceslas square by about 15 minutes by foot. However it is very near the pivovorsky dum (a pub/brewery) where 2 beers and 2 meals of beef and dumplings costs about £4.
The locatione and ambiense of this hotel were top knotch. Breakfast was downstairs, a bit of a bind for
some of our party of 18, but nevertheless a good start
to the day's walking and city gawping. The rooms were spotless and the staff very kourteous, reception staff being fluent in englishe. The only slight niggle
was the bar (in reception) - which was a fridge, with a limited selection of dear-ish drinks (compared to other establishments in the vicinity.
Stayed here for 3 nts - lovely clean rooms, friendly helpful staff and superb location for a short stroll to Wenceslas Square and only 2 mins from the Metro. Breakfast was better than the average Continental. We would recommend highly and would stay here again if we were to return to Prague
Just returned from our 4 nights stay at the Hotel Raffaello, very clean and fair price, but very dull staff, in fact we found the natives quite cold, and lack manners, Prague is so so beautiful, and had a wonderful time.
The public transport is fantastic, and great value. Taxis are a different matter, we were told by our tour operater the taxis SHOULD cost no more than 400, from the city to airport, got the hotel to order taxi, (we did know in advance that a taxi would cost 650) but when you have a early flight we had little or on choice.
We feel that the Hotel should ensure that their guests are not taken for a ride........, but they know that they dont have to try, as the city sells itself.
Got home to Dubin, (it was raining) but the bus driver to the long term carpark, was such fun, and had all the passengers in stitches, yes it nice to go travelling , but great to come home.
I went to Prague for work and combined this with a mini break before and after my assignment. Of the three hotels I stayed in (the other 2 being the Hilton Prague and Cloister Inn) this hotel was my favourite.
The room was clean, beautiful and very comfortable. The hotel staff spoke fantastic english and were very helpful. I foolishly left my mini i-pod in the hotel and the staff arranged for it to be delivered to me.
When I return to Prague, I will be staying here.
During a recent stay I in advertantly left clothes in the wardrobe and was very disappointed with the response from the hotel and the fact that cleaners claimed that no clothes were found. I would not stay there again.
Great and Cheap!!
Stayed at the hotel 01.01.05 to 04.01.05. Got a good deal on the room, which turned out to be a suite! Breakfast much better than your average Continental. Very handy for the metro/tram stop, but we walked (with kids!) into the City centre - a stones throw from the Museum and Wencelas Square. Would recommend and believe me, we're picky!!
Hotel Raffaello, Prague
Stayed in this excellent, inexpensive little hotel, 3rd-7th Jan, 2005 - within easy walking distance of the city centre, even for seniors like us!
Staff very helpful - room + bathroom, newly refurbished, breakfast good. No complaints at all!!!
Great little hotel!
This hotel was great. It was recently remodelled, and was well appointed for the inexpensive cost! Breakfast was included, and the English speaking staff was friendly and efficient. There was a problem with the pullout couch in our suite, so they gave us a free suite to correct the problem. Amazing!
