... surrounding Gothic Cathedrals, as well as the 500-year-old Astronomical Clock. A few minutes’ walk away and you have the 600-year-old Charles Bridge with all of its amazing statues on display.
Crossing that bridge on foot I made a brief stop at the Lennon Wall made famous by many Czech youths who continuously painted John Lennon on the same wall after he was assassinated. The police finally gave up on painting over ...

... cut down to a lowly 1500. We walked through a synagogue which had the names, ages, and their last days known before their demise, written on the walls. The walls are totally covered; it brought tears to Sherree's eyes thinking of all the lost souls especially the children. Then to make matters more heart rending there was an exhibit of the kids' art whilst they were imprisoned in the Ghetto. A lady who taught the kids art also met the same fate but she had managed to keep 2 ...
Breakfast - Miss Sophie's does an amazing breakfast. We were at the first seating, which was from 8 to 9. We went down stairs and were greeted with croissants and jam, six different types of cereal, platters of fresh fruit and others of ham and cheeses, different juices, coffee and tea. We sat down and were asked what we would like - Ed and Alison had pancakes, Ian had two plates of French toast. Ed also had two bowls ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DaVinci Hotel Wenceslas Square Prague
Having booked this hotel after reading so many positive reviews, I became worried after reading the review in December! I had booked this for myself, my husband, my mother and her 80 year old friend, both well travelled. I had no need to worry, we all thought it excellemt value. The hotel is very well situated just a few minutes walk from Wensleslas Square and easy walking to all areas. The tram was just around the corner where you catch the number 22 or 23 to Prague Castle. There were numerous restaurants and it was really nice to be so close to the lively square. We found O'reillys just off the square, where staff made us feel most welcome, excellent for good food and a great atmosphere, we highly recommend a vist. The hotel was newly refubished to a high standard and was very clean and modern. The staff were helpful and polite and answered any questions we asked. My mother and her friend had a room which was a little smaller than ours and had a compact shower room, but it was clean, tidy and suitalbe for their needs. Our room was slightly larger and had a bath with an overhead shower. The rooms were centrally heated and very warm.The beds were firm but we all managed a good nights sleep having spent our days walking and sightseeing. The bedding was clean and the room very modern and adequate, I have stayed in much smaller rooms! However, I would not recommend this hotel in the hight of the summer as it is located on a busy main road and Saturday night was very very noisey and thankfully we had our (triple glazed ) windows closed which drowned out the noise. The breakfast was self service. There was an assortment of cereals, fruit, yogurts and breads as well as scrambled eggs, bacon, beans and sausages. The only thing missing was a toaster.
Firstly, let me say that the hotel is in an excellent location, especially for the price you pay, in 5 mins you can be at the top of Wenceslas Square, and you have a metro station at the bottom of the road.
After all the wonderful reviews written about the DaVinci, I was truly disappointed. I travel regularly and don't expect a five-star hotel everytime, but what I do expect is good service, friendly staff and a room large enough to move around in without having to turn sideways.
My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights on October. Loved the location-just far enough away from major places for peace especially when all the drinkers arrive for the weekend!!!. 5-10 min, walk to Wencelaus Square. Staff very helpful, breakfast area -good variety, exceptionally clean, safe in rooms, double glazing in our first floor window which stopped the noise. Only disadvantage -as it was warm for some days there we had to open our windows to cool the room which does become noisy. You really have to search from places to eat around there -however there are some excellent ones.
A little gem
Fabulous and great value. We had 3 twin rooms for two nights, one on the main road and i have to say we were not bothered at all by the traffic noise.The rooms were spotless and bright and cleaned daily. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and will be staying there on our next trip to prague.
Great location,small but excellent hotel
I stayed here with my girlfriend for 5 nights in January, and we both coudn't believe how nice it was. It is a short 5-10 minute walk to the centre and Wenclescas Square etc. The staff were all extremely friendly and despite the cheap price of £40 per night, our room was immaculate and very modern. I would definitely recommend this hotel for any couples looking for a 3 star hotel. The breakfast was also very nice.
We were booked into a regular room at the DaVinci, but were upgraded to the Penthouse apartment at check-in, which proved to be a mixed blessing. If you are staying in Prague in the middle of winter, we might recommend the DaVinci, but in mid-June temperatures, with no effective air conditioning, this was not the most comfortable place to stay. We found that the room soaked up the heat of the day which made it uncomfortable to sleep at night unless we opened all eight windows. The hotel is on a busy road so, if you are not used to urban living, this would probably keep you awake.
This hotel was great. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the place still feels new from its recent remodeling. The staff speaks excellent English and went to great lengths for us. We have family in Prague and they called them and translated for us. The breakfast is good - the basics in breads and meats and cheeses.
The location is excellent- a few blocks from Wenceslas Square, a very short walk, but far enough away to avoid the hotel prices of the places on the square.
This was a good example of a small but perfectly formed hotel in an excellent location. I have read reviews about the noise of the road outside and the size of the rooms. Yes, it is on a busy road. If you want a relaxing break where you want to spend a large proportion of your time in the hotel then this is not the place for you. If on the other hand you want a base from which to explore Prague and spend only sleeping time/breakfast time in the hotel then i doubt this could be bettered. Its location is superb - it is minutes from the Metro station and an easy walk to Wenceslas Square. The pay off for this is the road noise. If you get a room overlooking the main road (on the left of the hotel as you face the front)you might find this excessive. This, however, is remedied by closing the window! My advice would be to ask for a room on the right hand side as this faces a quieter road. The rooms are small - but incredibly clean and well (if not simply) decked out. The entire hotel is modern and immaculate. The breakfast was superb, a fine feast of cold meats, pastries, bacon, eggs, beans, toast, coffee, tea etc etc. It was just what you need to refuel before 10 hours plus of sight seeing. I highly recommend this neat little modern hotel. If you are thinking of going to this hotel, feel free to email me with any questions you might have.
This is a newly renovated hotel which is a 5 minute walk from the top end of Wenceslas Square & a 15/ 20 minute walk from the Old Town. The hotel is situated on one of the busiest roads out of Prague so it's unsuitable for anyone who needs peace to sleep. During our stay the staff were friendly and willing to help.
