We had an apartment, two bedrooms, with a living room, walk in closet, full kitchen, balcony, entry foyer, and a bath with separate toilet room. The place was huge....and would have been a nice apartment to LIVE in, much less stay a few days.
The tram stops right in front of the hotel and you can buy full day tram/bus/subway tickets (one ticket covers all 3) from the front desk. Passable breakfast, and right on the river. We awoke Saturday morning to a farmers market/flea market along the river right outside our door.....and it was a great market! On Sunday, we woke to another market, of authors who were selling the books they had written.
Decent restaurants within a block or so, with bars and such in the same block. Had a very good Chinese meal about a block and a half away. Tesco supermarket is about a block from the hotel as well, if you prefer to cook in the apartment.
We liked it....it was a good choice.

... vibe' around the streets.
We found an interesting mode of transport for the last 200m home from the Square: a 7-seater round bicycle! All of us pedaling, all facing the centre of the circle (so some of us had our backs to the direction of travel) and one poor man trying to steer our way through the hooting and cheering crowds. What a laugh!
The evening finished with a toast to our time together over a bottle of ...
We started off the day with fresh fruit smoothies from the stand across the street & my favorite, a chai tea latte from Starbucks! Tastes exactly like it does in America :P We're lucky to be so close to Old Town Center. We walk through a few times each day and it's just as magical every time! We feasted on more Czech cuisine for lunch/dinner at "Lokal" sharing the fried cheese with homemade tartar sauce, fresh salad with chicken, chicken with ...
... Pam scored an acceptable level of "tepid", while Katie scored "burning" (she would like to reassure everyone this is in the love-sense, not the STI sense ;) haha. En route to find dinner, and the Powder Tower (the oldest remaining gate to the city - part of the old city wall) we discovered "choco-story" - The Chocolate Museum and went inside for a live candy-making demonstration. They were demonstrating how to make rock candies - colourful little treats ...
... playing 'imagine' and other Beatles songs. We also came across another lock wall. We met Brendan at 4 and decided to check out "the museum of medieval torture" right by the Charles Bridge. Man was it creepy and grotesque and shocking! Obviously in most cases if you were tortured enough you would admit to anything.... Like witchcraft. That took about a half hour and we were starving so Brendan led us to Old Town Square to see the huge and oldest 'clock' ...
... felt the coldest so far this afternoon as a sneaky breeze blows right through you.
Dark by the time we get off the boat at 17.00. Walked back into Old City Square now enjoying the major buildings all lit up. Went on to a large shopping complex and bought 'snow shoes' for Peter. Back towards Wenceslas Square where we enjoyed another beautiful meal and beer to wash it all down. Home by about 20.00 and completed diary etc before ...
