We arrived in Prague at 7.30pm on the bus from Berlin. Lachie had researched Prague extensively and we were expecting to stay in an awesome little boutique hotel in the heart of the city until we arrived and realised this was one that had been swapped and we ended up in the dodgier part of town (zizkov) - 2km walk to the inner city under train …
... would be with Air France and that is where they had their desk.
We were pretty upset by this stage and yes Sooky La La had appeared. I was over tired, past being hungry and we were being sent from one place to another....infact we were in disbelief as this saga was turning into an absolute circus.
So we did as told and walked to the Shuttle train which took us from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2.
Got off and made our way to Desk 2D. I sat with ...
... Missing Munich to be in Prague had meant by default that I would miss Dachau, which annoyed me more than I can say, but the journey East now would put me somewhere even more poignant and thought provoking. Just outside of the city of Krakow lies the most horrific of the Nazi’s attempts to exterminate the Jews, and it was there that the rackety old bus I was on was now taking me. If there was one place where I could be guaranteed to get the alien experience I was after, that place would have to be Auswtich, ...
... Czech beer). I met Katy, a stenographer from San Diego. She had intended to come to Prague to teach English, but the program wasn’t working for her, so she picked up a job as a stenographer for a professor. This job allowed her to travel and see more of Europe. We discussed our travels and where we hope to end up in the future.
After lunch, we entered the Terezin museum. We learned about the steps the Nazis took to beautify the camp in preparation ...

The Khan arranged for his daughter to be released after their army was 10 days walk away from the castle. However his daughter had fallen in love with one of the guys in the castle and when she was released she ended up coming back to the castle to return to her lover.

Place to stay in Prague
Was a little unsure about the area when we got to the hotel (in a taxi organised by the hotel), but the hotel was lovely, staff exceptionally helpful and only 10 mins to town on the tram. The little Irish bar next to the pub sold great beer at about a quarter of the price in the hotel, and Einstein's Pizza parlour just down the hill serviced great pizzaz. We'll be back
We spent three days in the arcotel over the last weeked in May. The hotel was a perfect base for the weekend located only 10 mins by tram from the old town centre - you catch the tram right outside the hotel. The hotel is a beautifully restored old theatre building, with a really cool, modern finish. Rooms are comfortable and fitted with everything you need - minibar etc. The breakfast was great and is served in the old theatre itself - a really nice way to blow away the cobwebs of the night before in prague's great bar scene. Staff are extremely helpful with airport transfers etc. Get off the main tourist strip and stay here!
Stayed at Arcotel Teatrino for three nights at the beginning of March. Couldnt believe how tourist friendly the hotel was you can book and pay for excursions from the hotel using a booklet they give you on arrival. They will also arrange airport transfers and taxis for you. If you dont fancy using the trams, which I didnt, AAA Taxis are a reputable company. Also use Cedaz mini buses from the airport they charge a set price of about 8 pounds to take you anywhere in the city and will collect you for the same. (they have a Kiosk in the airport on the right of the exit). The hotel and its staff were fabulous and we will be going back.
Great place to come back to
We had a wonderful few days in January 2004. We watched the snow fall as we sipped our absinth in café Prague and headed to the hotel. The beautifully lit bar was inviting so we enjoyed a night cap before we headed to bed. The next morning we tucked into a varied and well set out breakfast in what was the auditorium of the theatre. They have modernized the building with sensitivity so it retains the charm of its past. The hotel is in the more bohemian part of Prague, which we felt was suitable, when in bohemia. There were many canteens offering local food. The staff were helpful and it was a joy to come back in the evening. We have already recommended to a few visitors to Prague.
This Hotel was icing on the cake for our trip to Prague
This hotel made our trip to Prague absolutely perfect. Although it's not in the center of the sights, the tram is one block from the front door, which is the cheapest method of transportation. Although the hotel is architecturally beautiful, your basic needs are met with modern, top-notch facilities. The food served in the gorgeous dining room is excellent and elegantly presented, and the hotel staff are very professional and accomodating! Nearby are some good restaurants, and a grocery store!
This hotel was great. It was in Prague 3. The tram is practically in front of the hotel which takes you easily into Prague 1, the centre. It took about ten mintutes. The neighborhood--well not much going on but with a 10 min. ride to the Prague 1 it didn't matter. The hotel staff are wonderful. The concierage were so helpful with all our questions for excursions, directions or tram or taxi inquires. The breakfast was included and it was really good. The decor is really nice. The breakfast/restuarant is in what use to be the theatre, really interesting; visually nice to look at. We went in March and the wheather just happend to be great but typically its cold and need a heavy winter coat but we left ours in the hotel room since the it was so nice out. Most people know broken english. Overall, the city is amazing and it helped a lot staying at a great hotel. Our room was a nice size room, very modern, mini bar, not too hot. The hotel has a small gym that has a sauna and you can request a massage for an additional charge. Highly recommend Prague, it really is the Paris of Eastern Europe and our hotel was great.
A great hotel, really friendly and extremely helpful staff and lovely food. The restaurant used to be part of the old theatre, beautifully restored.Quite a walk out of the city centre, although the trams are very good, just watch your personal belongings!Had a wonderful meal at Celnice (check out their site -----------------) - 4 ppl 3 courses 2 bottles of wine etc just over £50.They also have a night club downstairs, very nice!Try the local beers.I booked it through Jet2 cheap flights from Leeds & Bradford) and their sister site Hotelconnect (go via Jet2 site).
Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights over easter. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we had was excellent (407) get an 07 room if you can as they are larger and have a balcony. The room was warm, clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent however lastminute.com sold this including breakfast and the hotel claim that breakfast was not included.
Travelling from the airport catch the 119 or 254 bus to Dejvicka, then the underground to Flora and finally the number 5 tram to Lipsanka.
This costs 25Kc which is about 50 pence and leaves you with a 2 minute walk to the hotel.
Travel into the centre on the 9 tram is the best bet. Consider a 3 5 or 7 day travel card.
Stayed at the Teatrino in late March 2004. Superb room and kept spotless by the friendly staff. Very helpful reception staff giving advice about trams etc. The No 9 and 5 trams go into the city every 4 minutes from a stop about 70 metres away. Good breakfasts in the beautifully restored theatre auditorium. When we return to Prague we will book this hotel again.
My husband took me to Prague for a surprise Brithday trip on the 19th December 2003 - we had a fantastic time, and would thoroughly recommend it as a City Break. We stayed at the 4-Star Arcotel Teatrino Hotel which was lovely, it was originally a Theatre and was renovated into a Hotel in 2001. The restaurant is based in the main Theatre Hall, so the original stage and window boxes are all still there, it is very modern, contemporary and very trendy. The breakfast choice was vast, and very tasty, and would suit all people whatever their tastes and requirements.
