... start than we had hoped for. Our first stop was one of Henni's favorite bars. It was a really neat place, aside from the service. We all ordered, but only a coke and three of the four beers ordered made it to the table -- apparently the bar was closing and one girl in our group did not get a beer. It was a very frustrating experience, but we didn't let it ruin our fun. From there, we headed to a three tiered club; ...
... graves tumbled on to each other because the jews were not allowed to bury their dead anywhere but in this small area. The synagogues are all laid out with exhibits of the life of the Jews through the ages in that area and well done. Photos were not allowed which made me angry - with no flash there was not a reason for that and it seemed contrary to the message of educating the world of Jewish history. But so be it.
From there we went to the castle area ...
Well Shareen was too sick to do anything today so we hung around the hotel all morning, then convinced her that she had to see the famous clock do it's thing. So we went out for an hour or so, but she was too sick to enjoy it.
Dad went off exploring in the afternoon and went to the amazing Strahov Library and Museum then onto a quick walk through the Prague ...
... We both GASPED, (but feared not to argue as we both knew that our wonderful host had taken days off from work and planned our visit for months. SUCK IT UP!)
Our following day went like this, up at 5.30am, (as planned) mother cooked us traditional Czech breakfast, (where did she find the energy, but so glad she did). Jump in car, LONG drive thru country, which I might add was stunning, and commentary along the way, (who needs Trafalgar Tour Company or Globus when we ...
... you can taste the hapiness!' possibly true. So they knew exactly who hunted this venison, and its very special to get it from this guy, and turns out Martha is sorta famous in town for how she cooks her game. It was braised in this red wine and vegetable secret delicious sauce.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Terminus Prague
This is a great 3 star hotel. Newly renovated, the rooms are very large and the bathrooms well appointed. The location is great for the price and only about 7 minutes walk from the old town square and the breakfast is top notch. All in all very hard to fault - although do try to get a room on the side of the hotel not overlooking the busy flyover.
I would definitely stay here again and strongly recommend this hotel.
Got back from weekend in Prague (4-6th Dec) yesterday and thought I'd post here, because I've found previous posts helpful. It was our first visit to Prague so had no idea what to expect, but had a great time. We got our hotel to send a car to pick us up from the airport and were glad we did - the taxi rank looked like chaos, and the last thing we wanted to do was figure out the bus or trains. Took about 20mins and cost 650 (about £15), well worth it. We stayed at the Tulip Inn Prague Terminus and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is newly renovated and spotless. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was lovely. Good size, comfy beds, nice bathroom. Only slight downer was grim view of ringroad flyover and train station, but they're hidden by thick net curtains - and who spends all day looking out of the window anyway? Also, the immediate area isn't great but always felt safe even late at night. Really wasn't an issue.
Staff just there for the wages

all in all clean fresh hotel but you better hope nothing goes wrong as the staff just turn up to get payed
My first time in Prague and I stayed at the Tulip Inn Terminus for 3 nights from Sep 19 thru Sep 22, 2004. Perhaps my expectations were high due to the glowing reviews I had read here, but this hotel is mediocre at best.
My best friend and I have just returned from a 4 day break at the tulip inn. Desperate to just kick back and relax we found this was the perfect place to do so. With incredibly friendly staff and very spaceous rooms there was nothing to complain about. The hotels its self is very near (2mins away) all major transport links - metro, bus, train. And with a 5-10 min walk into the old town the location is excellent. More importantly as two 21 yr old girls we both felt very safe to walk back from the old town in the early hours of the morning. Overall, superb value for money and we are definately hoping to return.
The hotel has just been modernised and our room was spacious, with a comfortable bed and good bathroom. The air conditioning was a bit noisy. The hotel is in a rather scruffy part of Prague, but we felt quite safe returning after dark. It is next to the Wilsonova flyover. The soundproofing keeps out traffic noise but not sirens. The staff are friendly and speak excellent english. Don't necessarily expect a room with a view, ours was just below ground level, so all we could see were the legs of people passing by and the flyover. Didn't worry us because we were out in Prague for most of the time.Transport is good, with a tramstop just behind the hotel and another, serving different routes, outside the local station. Metro stations serving two lines are about 5 minutes walk away. Both are an excellent way of seeing Prague but are not easy if you have difficulty climbing steps. Buy a "Transfer Ticket" (3 or 7 day), time stamp it on first use, put it away and you will not need it again for trams or metro, other than to show an inspector. We bought ours at the information office on Na Prikope.Restaurants recommende by our taxi driver (-----------------------------), which we found to be good: Kolkovna (------------), Tulip Cafe (Opatovicka 3), there's a good patio at the back, Stoleti (-------------) and U Ciriny (Navratilova 6).
Loved the Tulip
Just come back from the short stay at the Tulip Inn, Prague. The hotel's location belies what is really a very nice hotel. We were a little concerned when we saw its location, directly under a flyover. But the soundproofing was wonderful. the quality of the rooms was excellent, the breakfast, although not mouthwatering was substantial. More importantly, however, all sites were within walking distance. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and would definitiely go back there.
We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Tulip Inn. The hotel is quirky. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. But there are no tissues in the bathrooms and the complimentary teas and coffee come with sugar but no cream. The breakfast buffet had a nice assortment of hot and cold items. There is a nice little convenience store next door to purchase bottled water, sodas & snacks without having to pay the mini-bar rates. The hotel's location is good if you like to walk and can walk without assistance. It is not a good place for the elderly unless you are willing to take taxis. My mother had to meet us at various pre-arranged tourist spots as it is difficult for her to walk.
