Travel Blogs from Prague
Sup y'all, (cant say hello in Czech, can't say anything in Czech to be exact). So. It was a hidious start to the drive day - 6am bags to bus, departure 0645... OUCH! I thought I was on holiday! We had the early start for a reason though. Its a 8-9hr drive to Prague and we were stopping to do a 3 1/2hr tour of Auschwitz. Long day. Auschwitz was... well... depressing but incredible to walk through a place where such atrocities happened. Even the guys who usually have ...
... Those are the most real I would say thus far. It is really cool to hear even the club music because it is so different compared to American club music. There is more techno music and it is more mixed and just cooler all around. It isn't as boring and well known stuff.
As for the pubs.. well in Budapest, if you say thank you after you give them the cash for your drink and before they give you your change back, that means that they can keep the change. So that is a ...

Once we arrived in Prague we decided to be smart and take the metro to our hostel. What we didnt realise is that not all is as it appears on the map. This was apparent when we walked across a large bridge in the direction of our hotel, to see that the street we wanted to turn onto was waaaay below the bridge in the ...

Before the Opening Ceremony I took myself on a self-guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Old City of Prague. I'm a bit worried about my memory considering how little I remember since my last adventure here. What I do remember is being ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Raffaello Hotel Prague
Nice low price hotel
I and my girlfriend stayed at the hotel for 4 days in the beginning of November 2005. The hotel is a charming little hotel about 15 minutes walk form the New Town center. The room where clean and the staff was nice. However we found the breakfast a little small and lack a lot of things. Our room was towards the back yard so it was no noise at night, but I can image there is quit a lot of noise from the cars in the nearby roads if you get a room facing the street. The hotel should also consider changing the doors in to the room because you can hear absolutely everything that's going on in the hotel from inside your room.
Al in al the hotel is ok, and if you compeer it to other hotels in the same price range I think the hotel is a good choice.
Newly refurbished 3 star hotel. spotlessly clean very good standard of rooms and good breakfast, reasonably priced. Only slight downside is it is probably the wrong side of wenceslas square by about 15 minutes by foot. However it is very near the pivovorsky dum (a pub/brewery) where 2 beers and 2 meals of beef and dumplings costs about £4.
The locatione and ambiense of this hotel were top knotch. Breakfast was downstairs, a bit of a bind for
some of our party of 18, but nevertheless a good start
to the day's walking and city gawping. The rooms were spotless and the staff very kourteous, reception staff being fluent in englishe. The only slight niggle
was the bar (in reception) - which was a fridge, with a limited selection of dear-ish drinks (compared to other establishments in the vicinity.
Stayed here for 3 nts - lovely clean rooms, friendly helpful staff and superb location for a short stroll to Wenceslas Square and only 2 mins from the Metro. Breakfast was better than the average Continental. We would recommend highly and would stay here again if we were to return to Prague
Just returned from our 4 nights stay at the Hotel Raffaello, very clean and fair price, but very dull staff, in fact we found the natives quite cold, and lack manners, Prague is so so beautiful, and had a wonderful time.
I went to Prague for work and combined this with a mini break before and after my assignment. Of the three hotels I stayed in (the other 2 being the Hilton Prague and Cloister Inn) this hotel was my favourite.
The room was clean, beautiful and very comfortable. The hotel staff spoke fantastic english and were very helpful. I foolishly left my mini i-pod in the hotel and the staff arranged for it to be delivered to me.
When I return to Prague, I will be staying here.
During a recent stay I in advertantly left clothes in the wardrobe and was very disappointed with the response from the hotel and the fact that cleaners claimed that no clothes were found. I would not stay there again.
Great and Cheap!!
Stayed at the hotel 01.01.05 to 04.01.05. Got a good deal on the room, which turned out to be a suite! Breakfast much better than your average Continental. Very handy for the metro/tram stop, but we walked (with kids!) into the City centre - a stones throw from the Museum and Wencelas Square. Would recommend and believe me, we're picky!!
Hotel Raffaello, Prague
Stayed in this excellent, inexpensive little hotel, 3rd-7th Jan, 2005 - within easy walking distance of the city centre, even for seniors like us!
Staff very helpful - room + bathroom, newly refurbished, breakfast good. No complaints at all!!!
Great little hotel!
This hotel was great. It was recently remodelled, and was well appointed for the inexpensive cost! Breakfast was included, and the English speaking staff was friendly and efficient. There was a problem with the pullout couch in our suite, so they gave us a free suite to correct the problem. Amazing!
