Travel Blogs from Prague
I headed back to Prague. When I had been there the weekend before, I had learned that the guy at the airport bus ticket counter doesn't break big bills. Of course, anybody who came from abroad and just got money from an ATM only has big bills. He makes you pay with your credit card. This time, I was smarter about it because I had change ( …
In the morning, I had the hotel breakfast, which I was pleased with, and then took the tram to town. On the tram, I noticed lots of people walking around with Easter baskets. They didn't look to be full of candies, like kids' baskets in the states, but full of bread. One smelled like it had both bread and sausages. When we got to the more tourist …
Using Nats 21st trip to Prague as a little test of this whole blogging thing! So Kieran gave me a note to tell me to pack for three days, leave my passport at home and ask no further questions (which I obviously didn't stick to much to Kierans annoyance)... On the 18th June Kieran picked me up, the whole journey I was looking out for signs - where was he taking me? After a lot ...

So yeah, it can be dramatic and sad. But it is up to us how we want to dance the tango. We can choose to embrace it and dance with it without feeling the sorrow and the pain but I guess this also depends on our mood. When we feel the pain inside of us, those lyrics and words or just the triste (sad) music it may throw us deeper down in our depression.
When we are happy go lucky we then can percieve those words ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Pyramida Prague
This is a really nice hotel. One thing to note in Prague is that the classification system over there isn't regulated quite the same as ours is so four star over there doesn't necessarily equate to four star over here.
Pleased with the pyramida
An excellent hotel with excellent friendly staff. The roomswere clean spacious and comfortable.The breakfast buffet was more than adequate.The dinner menu in the copernicas restaurant was reasonably priced (very good value when compared to an englsh restaurant of simalar standard)we`d paticulary reccomend the old bohemian cuisine.
The hotel is a fair way from the centre but with excellent tram links and a tram journey which surely must be one cf the best in europe,taking in many of the sights along the way.we`have no hesitation in staying here again.The only drawback being that in the summer prague can get hot, and there is no air conditioning in the bedrooms.
This hotel was great as the other good reviews suggest it offers easy access by (22) tram to the centre and all the other attractions, we bought a 7 day pass for around £5, which allows access on the buses, trains, trams and the vernacular railway. There are also great restaurants near to the hotel at cheaper prices than the town centre but the food at the hotel restaurant was also very enjoyable and quite reasonable.
Heard mixed reviews about the accomodation but here is my take on it while i was there for 5 days July 04.
We stayed at the Pyramida at the beginning of June. It was lovely. The room was a good size, very clean - as was the shower room. Huge comfortable bed, and great view from the 7th floor window.
We enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant - food was excellent quality, and the price (including drinks) was very reasonable, compared with other places. Staff very attentive.
The location is ideal - it is within easy walking distance of the castle area, but with tram stops just outside to take you across the river into town. It is also handy for the airport - tram to the metro, then along to the last stop for the 119 bus to the airport.
The Room. The room was of adequate size and had 3 mirrors, shower room was clean and the shower was hot and reasonably powerful. The Safe is free of charge and there is ample wardrobe space. TV has about 2 English channel (news) and a German music channel playing mostly English language songs. We were on the top floor (9) in room 942 and had a fantastic view of the town and of Prague castle.
The hotel was quite impressive from the outside, reception was smart as was check in. The rooms were clean and adequate maybe a bit on the small size but ok. It was breakfast the next morning that was the real shocker. I have stayed in several Eastern European hotels in the last two years and I have never ever seen such a poor buffet breakfast. There was egg and bacon but only for certain guests, and that was guarded by two large managers, the same went for the real orange juice but that only had one guard! As in the title there was tripe soup one day, dodgy looking goulash another, with dry stale bread rolls, weak coffee and orange juice of such a garish colour that to drink it was a risk I wan't prepared to take. There was the usual cheese and cooked meats, yogurt and cornflakes but even these looked a little sad. As for the waitresses, well McDonalds would have their work cut out to make them smile. Sadly for the in house 'Restaurant Kopernik' the breakfast scared away all the hotel guests and it was almost empty, but the food there was excellent, service friendly, and very reasonably priced. From talking to other tourists I would say that there are better and cheaper hotels all arround Prague, next time we'll be giving them a try.
The hotel was a complete disappointment. Staff were unwilling to help and had to be prodded for answers, e.g. we were intially told that there was no public transport servicing the hotel (the 22/23 tram stop is just outside the main entrance)!Breakfast was edible, but very basic - not particularly pleasant. To be fair, dinner at the hotel was much better.The room smelt of blocked drains and had a musty feel (sheets had marks, oversheet was dirty). I cannot understand how this is a four-star hotel - the beds were terrible (lumpy and unsupportive).
The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were basic but clean and the restaurant had wonderful food and good service.
We had a room on the 8th floor with a view rightout across Prague. A bit out of town but the Tram stop is right outside the hotel and for about 20p you can buy a ticket frojm the hotel and the number 22 or 23 will take you into town
Large, modern, clean but basic hotel
I stayed here with a group in April 03. Hotel was large, clean but basic. Rooms were average size with clean bathrooms. The Eastern European influence is very apparent in this hotel. Breakfast was acceptable. Leisure centre available at an extra cost. Hotel called me a taxi and found that I was charged double rate by the unmarked taxi that collected me. Don't get caught with that one. There are better properties closer to the centre worth looking at.
