TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Red Lion Prague
The Red Lion served up a pleasant surprise. The arrangements on arrival were slightly curious, as we were sent about 100 yards up a steep cobbled hill to check-in at its sister hotel (I think this is because we arrived after 10pm). However, once we were able to access the room it was a beautifully decorated period room, offering comfort and a traditional feel in an historic city.
Breakfast was a decent selection of bread, fruit, cereals, yoghurt, cakes and hot and cold drinks. The hotel added to a fabulous stay in a fantastic city.

Our guide remembers that during the communist years, nobody was allowed to walk in the green space i.e. parks.
The Velvet Revolution of 1989 freed the Czechs from communism.
They claim to have the best beer in the world!
Tomorrow we have a full-day excursion to Prague ...
... the directions to our hostel were from a different train station. 21st century problems...took us a half hour to find WiFi so we could figure out how to get to our hostel.
I hear from people all the time about how Prague is their favorite city in the world. After our first full day I can imagine why. "Je to hesky? To me czechy!" Is it nifty? Then it's Czech! The city is full of beautiful architecture and bridges. The food is hearty meat ...
... and then trying out the local absinth which was surprisingly drinkable when had on the rocks as suggested by our walking tour guide but Amanda decided to go with the bar staff’s recommendation of having the absinth set on fire and that made it virtually undrinkable and quite amusing for me as I enjoyed my drink! We got back to the hostel quite happy and so we decided to continue with a few more drinks at the bar but due to starting way too early in the ...
