... and hour late but they were not busy and we got our reserved table. We ordered a hearty meal as a result of all of the exercise and anxiety that was a part of getting there. The view was beautiful and we ate in tents that were heated. The food was good and we decided to ask the restaurant to call a cab for us and give us clear directions as to where to get the cab at the edge of the park. We ...
... we wanted to climb the astronomical clock during sunset to see the whole city at night time and get good sunset pictures but we ha a lot of time to waste and it was a gorgeous day out so we sat in the sun for a while and relaxed, hoping to get some color on my face at least. Then we decided to try some Czech beer because it seemed so popular, it was very good surprisingly. We wanted to prolong dinner out, like always, so we ordered drinks and then twenty minutes later ...

Wednesday proved to be a trouble free day, where we managed to get some miles done, about 300 and across another border and into Prague. We found a campsite right in the centre of town and ...

Breakfast at the hotel was pretty good, a selection of cheeses, croissants, bread, scrambled eggs, sausages, yoghurt and cucumbers. Plus really awesome hot chocolate!
After breakfast Paul and I ventured to the central railway station and enquired about a train to vienna. We ended up booking a train straight to Zagreb and then went to prague castle!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Savoy Prague
Savoy sojourn was welcoming and lovely -
The Savoy Hotel is a lovely boutique hotel set in the Castle District of Prague. The buffet breakfast and room accomodations were excellent. We had a package that included dinner and were surprised by the quality of the food and service. The most amazing thing about this hotel is the free mini bar. It is fully stocked each day with beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks.
I disagree with the people that say this hotel is over the hill. It was lovely and the bathrooms very nice. We spent 6 days in July 2004 and were thrilled with the arrangement for tickets, tours, and private tours that the concierge made for us. The hotel is not in the middle of the major tourist sites - for us this was a plus.. We enjoyed walking down the hill or taking the tram into town.
The only glitch during our stay was that my daughter's cell phone was stolen from the room. The front desk attendants were sympathetic and the manager arranged for us to get a phone - they did not charge us - and apologized profusely for the inconvenience. I was so impressed -
I would not think twice about recommending this hotel and plan on returning to it in the near future.
Olde Worlde beautiful hotel
I stayed for 3 nights in the Savoy, and, while it was a little bit out from the centre of the city, it was worth the few minutes travelling in and out. The rooms are really spacious and the beds extremely comfortable. There's a really good room service breakfast menu, it's lovely relaxing in your room in the morning in your fluffy robe eating breakfast. I would thououghly recommend this hotel.
Wonderful hotel in Prague
We visited this lovely hotel in October 2003 for five days. The location is excellent- close by the castle but a little away from the hustle and bustle of the inner city. Close trolley access made visiting any area of Prague easy and quick. Service was extraordinary, restaurant excellent, and overall it was one of our best ever European venues. I highly recommend Prague in general and a stay at the Savoy!
My wife and I stayed at the Savoy for five nights in May. We tend to like the LSHW properties, and found a special (though still expensive - $200+) rate on the website. We had a large corner room facing the street which was comfortable and very quiet thanks to double windows. The large bathroom was welcoming, and the amenities were very nice - including slippers, bathrobe, etc. As an added bonus, the mini-bar was included in the room rate and was regularly restocked. The hotel provided a welcome basket of excellent fruit as well. Breakfasts were tasty and very relaxing. The tram ride is easy to figure out if you don't want to walk back to the hotel. We almost always walked down to the city, sometimes twice a day. Be careful if you take a taxi back, as the 4 minute cab ride can run over $15. Picky details: The matress was a bit on the firm side for my tastes. Also, you may want to take your own coffee mug to breakfast, as the coffee isn't strong enough for the tiny cups - and refills can be slow in coming. Still, we couldn't imagine staying any place else on our next trip to Prague.
Great place to stay in Prague
we stayed here for three days, and thought it was great. very nice room. clean. comfortable beds. marble bathroom. complimentary minibar. breakfast delivered to the room every morning (included). a wonderful "relax center" in the basement with a sauna, steamroom, whirlpool etc. very helpful (but not terribly nice) staff (cut them some slack - they're still not over the whole communism thing. we would saty here again. it is however, a little far from the city center. you'll be close to the castle (which is amazing), but a little walk from everything else. we didn't find it a problem though - and actually liked the peace and quiet.
Very Good, but not Excellent
My husband and I stayed at the Savoy in Prague in September 02. The location is great, just a few blocks from Prague castle. Overall, our experience was very good, but fell short of our expectations for a 5 star accommodation. We felt the service was so-so, we had a few problems with the heat in our bathroom, etc. In general, however, service is substandard in Prague. The hotel lobby and common areas are beautifully done and we DID have the opportunity to see Sean Connery in the lobby when we checked in. He was also staying there at the time!
We had a 4 day stay at this superb hotel in March 2004. Location is very central but away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of town.
Staff were very friendly, polite and professional. Check-in was smooth and efficient. Rooms were luxurious. Beautifully appointed bathroom with bath and separate shower, good mirrors and lighting which, was great for putting on make-up. So many hotels (even expensive ones) have poor lighting in the bathroom or mirrors in the wrong place for ladies putting on make-up. The toilet was separate to the main bathroom. There was plenty of wardrobe space with a great selection of hangers. Bedroom was large with a huge bed. Room had a 'complimentary' mini-bar. We had breakfast in our rooms each day which with very generous quantities (although a bit late on our first morning). We asked the hotel for recommendation for a meal out in town one evening. Their suggestion was great so we had lunch there the following day too. Would certainly recommend this hotel and would stay there again if I found myself in Prague again.
The Hotel Savoy was wonderful! We have just returned from a 4 night stay celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary, and could not have been happier with our accomodations and experience. The staff was outstanding! Room appointments and condition was perfect. The included breakfast was superb and the complimentary minibar was a very nice extra touch. The hotel's location was also terrific; close to the major sites and experiences in Prague, but away from the intense tourist sections of the city. Returning to the hotel each evening we felt as though we were returning home!
Service with a smile!
Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights at the end of August 2003 to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Right from the moment we were met at the airport by our driver the service offered by the hotel and the attitude of the staff was excellent. Check in was relaxing, our room superb, the public areas exemplary. Breakfast was wonderful and on the one evening we dined at the hotel we found the restaurant to be everything you could wish, though if quite, a little devoid of atmosphere despite the pianist. The leisure facility though small was clean and well appointed and the massages were old school and the better for it. We will definitely be back.
Over the hill hotel
This hotel was obviously very nice at one time. However, its not anymore. The air conditioniing didn't work , the bar refrigerator didn't either even after it was replaced once. The bedding was worn out and the room was generally shabby. AND ito add insult to injury it was nearly $300 per night.
