Prague is quite an impressive city and it is very unique since it was one of the only majoy cities that came out of the war for the most part physically unscathed. Today Kel and I started off in the Jewish Quarter where we were able to check out 5 synagogue, One was built in the 13th century and is the oldest …
Hotel Anna Blows Goats, but Prague is beautiful. NOTE: Do not wander off with random "Bar Owners" in search of extra curricular activities... Trust me...
... journeys are associated with a small amount of maths homework and a great deal of playing on the ipad! It was raining in Prague......see I am grateful for my umbrella which i don't share with Steve cos he poo pooed the idea of brining it!! We had a Typical Czech meal out, which involved meat and dumplings! And great quantities of beer. Thankfully a good red wine was also on ...
... just drank of course! What else could we do?" And to be fair their beer is fabulous. I’d had my first Pilsner Urquell off their special pressurised taps the previous night and had been stunned by how different it tasted to the rubbish version we get back home.
Evidently, this ‘tradition’ of enjoying one’s self despite whatever plight may have befallen the individual or collective has survived. In George’s case I suspect it might have been a ...
... but the real draw of the tour was the Cathedral.
My last stop on the castle hill was the Lobkowvicz Palace. This unassuming building was less a palace and more a museum of old family artifacts. They had a number of paintings, jewels, and well decorated arms, but the most amazing piece was definitely the music room. A member of the Lobkowvicz family had been very instrumental in funding Mozart, and in some ways ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Anna Hotel Prague
A spotless little hotel
I can not agree with some reviews posted. I stayed at this hotel on two occasions The hotel was very clean, the room was well appointed and comfortable. The front desk staff spoke great English and were very helpful. The breakfast buffett was simple but filling. The location is convenient, 5 minutes walk to the center. No parking available in front of hotel; the garage was a little bit of a walk from the hotel, but cheap at $10 for 24hrs.
Horrible, worse breakfast ever, rooms dirty
i booked this hotel in feb 2004 and had to carry luggage up to top floor room with skylights. carpet dirty, shower spray nonfunctional, staff conversant in english till you had a problem. their idea of lift was dumbwaiter. would not stay if given away. new jersey
We booked an executive room and was given this very small old fashioned room with a view of some office building. People in the room above us to the right could see into our shower room, no, there were not any curtains. The room was so hot during the night and you cannot open the window, it was a horrible feeling. I asked at the reception for the executive room which I had booked and she assured me all the rooms are the same size. To get into the hotel you have to ring the bell and wait for the receptionist to release the lock and ring the bell again at the door at the top of the stairs, we had to wait for ages. So dont be fooled with large rooms or the photos! We booked into the Ametyst 4 star 3 nights for price of 2 which worked out £52 a night and it was nearby and was worth the extra
I stayed at the Anna Dependance in September 2004. The Dependance is an annex of 12 rooms 2 short blocks away from the main Anna hotel; you have to go the Anna for check-in and breakfast. The price of a single was 25-30% cheaper than in the main hotel. The Dependance is almost brand new, and the spacious size of the room; bright, pastel decor; warm, honey colored furniture; and sparkling bathroom (with a separate room for the WC) were surprisingly nice for this price range. The room even had a 19-20 inch TV with the most channels I have ever seen in Europe. However, there is only 1 hallway phone for all 12 Dependance rooms, and the bed was not very firm. You also have to enter the Dependance through a small courtyard that is dark and deserted at night. Breakfast is in a bright, pastel basement room at the Anna. The desk staff at the Anna are all young, cheerful, friendly (and quite attractive) girls who speak excellent English. The hotel is 5 minutes from the Namesti Miru metro stop, but a 15 minute walk to Wencelas square. I have also stayed at the Hotel Lunik - the rooms at the Anna are nicer, but the Lunik is a bit cheaper and more central than the Anna. Both hotels are excellent choices for the price.
I have recently returned from a five day trip to Prague where I stayed at the Hotel Anna. The hotel is very conveniently situated away from the centre of Prague with a tram stop just a few yards along the road and around the corner. Hotel Anna is a clean hotel without frills. The lift is very small and is only suitable for one person and a suitcase. I stayed in a single room at the back of the hotel and found it to be quiet, basic, but functional. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and my request for an extra pillow was carried out swiftly and efficiently. Continental breakfast in the basement dining room was plentiful but repetitious. I would recommend the hotel for anyone who enjoys value for money. I can thoroughly recommend the Rudy Baron restaurant, just a few yards from the hotel. The food was fabulous and excellent value for money.
Anna Hotel = Precious little hotel
Our stay at the Anna Hotel was a wonderful experience. The beautiful hotel was clean and nicely decorated. It is wonderfully located in the quiet Vinorahdy residential neighborhood with wonderful restaurants and shops around it. Its being located away from the tourist trap areas was not a problem at all, since the tram or metro is just a few minutes away. What better way to wake up in a room with high ceilings, long drapes, overlooking trees and a beautiful yellow Art Nouveau buidling right infront of the hotel. I cannot praise enough the hospitality and beautiful smiles of the front desk employees.... most especially Petra and Linda. Anna Hotel is highly recommended.
We stayed at the Hotel Anna for 3 nights and can only say good things about it. The staff were most
helpful giving us plenty of information as this was the first time we had been to Prague. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and there is a nice breakfast room. There is a lift but it is very small, enough room for 2 people. The hotel is situated away from the centre of Prague, but we walked to the Charles Bridge which is at the other side by the old town. The transport system is very good and we bought a 3day pass for the metro and tram, and both are near the hotel. We will definitely return to Hotel Anna on our next visit to Prague.
This hotel is a nice, comfortable, good-value-for-money hotel. Its situated in Vinohrady which is a little bit away from the very centre of Prague but the city's public transport system is excellent so its not a problem. There's a tram stop at the end of the street and a metro station a few minutes walk away. The staff are helpful & speak good English. Couldn't fault it!
We stayed in the Anna Hotel for four nights at the begining of April.
A group of six adults (3 couples) stayed in the hotel's seperate annexe located about 200 yards away, after checking in, it took about 5 minutes to find the property as the directions at the hotel reception were given in broken english. When we got to our rooms we were pleasantly surprised, they were very modern and very clean and were in a quiet location in the building. While the annexe has no services other than daily room cleaning and linen change, the hotels facilities are there if you require. Breakfast was served in the main hotel building and was both plentiful and of sufficient quality and variety to satisfy all but the hardest to please with a selection of cheeses, meats, eggs, cereal, breads, jams, yoghurts, pastries, tea, coffee, orange juice etc. The hotel is in Prague 2 which is sufficently close to walk to all the main tourist attractions including the castle, in fact we never used a taxi once during our stay, which considering their reputation was maybe not a bad thing. The bars and restaurants located near to the hotel are numerous and extremely good value. They get progressively more expensive the closer you got to the town centre. We paid Â£108 per couple for 4 nights which to me is just unbeatable, if you are considering Prague then seriously consider this hotel and or it's annexe.
