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.

... the heat, probably hoping no one would turn up!! He nearly got his wish, as we were the only 2 for the first part of the tour (2 other groups of 3 joined at the half way meeting point), so essentially we had a private tour as he told us the history of Czech Republic and walked us all around the old historic centre of Prague. He studied religion and journalism at the city university, and was very passionate on lots of issues, plus had lots of interesting stories to relay including ...
... Funny. We overheard some Americans talking opposite us and they commented on Aussie humour. Greg said hang in a sec, be careful what you say, we are Aussies. The woman said, don't worry, I love Australian's. We started talking to them and had a great conversation until it was time to get off the train. The American lady saw Greg on the train earlier and said to her friends "Don't mess with him, he ...
... as we couldn't imagine T. wanting to come back to the same place 2 days in a row, as the entry fee allows you to do. St. Vitus Cathedral,our first stop, has an impressive stained glass collection, from medieval to modern. It's hard to resist taking a photo of each and every glass panel (I don't think I succeeded), and the various smaller scenes in them. Less imposing but equally impressive is the Chapel of St. George, a much more modest church. My thoughts went to ...
... apology. It's a damn good job to, because this guy would have crushed me with an ear lobe. I try to remain in control, heart racing, ready for it to turn nasty (and run away). The giant simply offers his deepest regrets at his inebriated mates actions, and leads him away. A grateful sigh of relief is swiftly followed by a stiff vodka. All too soon the night draws to a close.
You may scoff at this, but I ...
... the more recent times in the 20th century with all the wars that happened. It was quite fascinating as I really didn't know much about the history and this also gave yet another perspective about what took place here, especially during WWII.
We then walked around the Old Town, learning a little more history and fun stories about some of the buildings, before venturing up to New Town and then through the back side ...
