... colleague for every move she made and why it took 100 years to complete.
The saddest thing we had to do was throw out the tasty food we had been carrying around for us to have for breakfast so in the bin goes Paul's blue cheese, our quiche, the white cherries......
we were so shattered by this time food was the last thing on our mind and clearly we would not be allowed to take it to Prague. So goodbye to that plastic bag.
Now it is time to ...
... of time. In one of the larger cells, we saw the three tier bunk beds which would accommodate about 25-30 people and in which the Nazis typically kept 75-100. The only furniture was the bunks (no indication of what they might have had for mattresses), a narrow wooden 'locker' space, about 5" wide and 6" deep and 5' high with a 'shelf' about a foot from the floor and 6" from the top of the uprights, and a sort of stove fed from ...
... right now. This one was darker and a bit sweeter than the other two but with the same clean finish; my favorite so far. Fabien and I discussed traveling and the difference between how Americans view work and vacation versus the French. Fabien ordered another beer and I a coffee because I was literally falling asleep at the table. We talked for another hour or so before parting ways. I walked back across the bridge to my hostel and conked out instantly. ...
... cities in Poland not to get destroyed by war.
Courtney and I made our way out of the Krakow bus station and walked around 20 minutes to the jewish quarter where we found our hostel. It was a large well run hostel with a very friendly girl working the front desk. She welcomed us with a shot of vodka mixed with hot sauce. After we settled in to our private room, we headed out to grab some food and explore a little of Krakow. Found a small nice place across the street from ...

On the other is the Lesser Town and magnificent Prague Castle which is an awesome sight from the water.At the centre of the city is Charles Bridge under which the Vltava River flows, and with great force at certain times of the year.From the bridge, the panoramic view over the river and over the city in general, with its historic buildings and nature, make it a focal point for visitors.

Historical Traveler Reviews Astoria Hotel Prague
The hotel describes itself as 4 star. It is not. There are better 3 star hotels in Prague. The hotel is very clean and well located. It also has secure storage for luggage if you want to stay later than the 12 noon checkout. The rooms are all the same size and too small. They do not have tea and coffee making facilities which I would expect from a 4 star hotel. All rooms have single beds, but they will put them together to make a double. The bar and restaurant are overpriced. As previous reviewers have reported, there are not enough tables to seat everyone at breakfast. The breakfast is not really worth bothering with anyway. I booked with the hotel direct, which was the cheapest option as they often have special prices. However they will quote a price in Euros. Strange as neither the UK or Czech Republic use these. Although you will pay in CZK they seem to use the conversion rate most beneficial to them.
We have just returned from 7 nights at the Astoria,The hotel itself was one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in,and there were still ladies cleaning the main area at 11pm.
Good Location but not-friendly staff
I was at Astoria Hotel in Prague for some nights last November. The hotel is clean and have a good location, just near from old center. But I found it overpriced. And the biggest problem of the hotel is the attitude of the people who works there: they never smiled and sometimes they don't even say "good morning" or "hello" or something. I found it very sad. I only recomend Astoria if you don't have more options. And be carefull beacsue the hotel is very expensive.
I agree with many of the previous reviews. We moved here deliberately after a three-day conference at the Praha Hilton to finish out our week in the city. We expressly picked the place because of the balconies on the top floors and its great location. In contrast to the Hilton - which is significantly over-priced, not clean, has mixed service, a poor location and is too American in atmosphere and fellow clientele. Now, I agree that very little is cheap anymore in central Prague but in contrast to the Hilton which is designed like a 1970s communist bloc block of bureaucratic redundancy the Astoria possesses a very accommodating staff, spotless rooms, great breakfast buffet and ideal central location but reasonably quiet. We encourage you to request a room on a top floor with a balcony. There's nothing like a late afternoon sitting back with a glass of wine and some cheese and fruit (from the local Albert's supermarket in the basement under the Kotva department store) and looking across the city church towers to the Castle on the far bank of the Vlatva. Highly recommended.
Clean and close to everything
I thought this hotel was very nice. Not very fancy but certainly clean and close to everything. It is in Old Town and the street is a little off the beaten path so it was quiet. We stayed on the 7th floor and had a nice view. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a clean room for a reasonable price in Old Town.
Astoria Hotel--Just right
Hotel Astoria is centrally located in the Old Town and has everything you need on your doorstop.
The room was perfect with everything necessary provided, spotlessly clean and maintained to a high standard. A safety deposit box was provided in the room. Old town square, Municipal Hall, Powder Tower, Jewish Quarter are all around the corner.
The staff were very helpful and all questions asked were answered efficiently. Metro station is around the corner and shopping centre is behind the hotel.
I booked through Venere.com which I found to be the cheapest. At just less than 100 euro a night I felt it was excellent value and would recommend it for a short or longer stay.
This hotel is a great hotel. Brand new refurbished and close to both Charles Bridge and old town square. yet in a quiet street with plenty of restaraunts and bars around.
Hotel service was excellent. Would definitely go back.
This hotel is very central, 5 mins (or less!) walk from Old Town Square located on a quiet side street. The hotel is new and modern. All the rooms are very clean and come with Safety Deposit Box, TV and minibar as standard. Large Buffet breakfast available every morning. Excellent Service. Would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
