Travel Blogs from Prague
Sooooo I have finally arrived in Prage... my Czech plane landed at about 6pm and I was met by Peter (my driver) who was holding a sign with my name on it...
The plane ride can only be described as LONG .... with crying babies and aeroplane food!!!
Peter drove me to the Three Crowns Hotel, but took a detour through the city so he …
So, it's evening #2 here in Prague. We arrived yesterday morning at around 9:00am after a decent flight. Noisy passengers aside, it wasn’t too bad, and it was nice for once (for me) to be travelling with other people. Not having to worry about personal space issues is great on a 9 hour plane ride.
I have been terrified all along …
... be met by Mr Viking River Cruises who took us outside to our coach. A short drive and we were at our hotel, the Hilton, overlooking the river. After collecting our keys had a quick coffee while waiting for luggage to be brought to our room, then straight back out to start exploring. Ended up in Wenceslas Square where we had dinner at Como Restaurant, sitting outside. Had ...
... sitting with some other ppl and they were going to get a taxi into the city because they were too scared to get the tram but when I said I was planning in getting it they said they'd come with me. Silly them haha! So I went out with one of my couple friends and the older nz lady who I initially didn't like bit now I do. We got in to town uneventfully thanks to meeee then walked down toward the river.. Took photos ...
... love the next morning. At the Eiffel tower I experienced another scary moment when a man offered to take my picture (with my camera), grabbed my arm and asked if I wanted to go to a hotel with him! I said, “no, thank you” and quickly made my way to the line that would take me to the top of the Eiffel tower. On the plus side, I got to the very top of the Eiffel tower and met two really cool girls in my hostel (but sadly I was leaving so I didn’t get to hang out ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel U Tri Korunek (Three Crowns) Prague
I stayed at this hotel for 5 days with my fiance in July and we were both very impressed. The hotel is clean and spacious and the breakfast is excellent - hot/cold buffets, freshly ground coffee etc. The area doesn't look to be the best, but after exploring Prague for a day, you'll find it's on par with most other areas of the city.
Not a bad hotel, we had some money stolen from our room by the maid. Poor area, but the real czech republic, very cheap restaurants surround the hotel, easy access to the town centre via the 207 bus, a 5min ride, or a 30 min walk. Try to stay more centrally if possible, but if not, this hotel provides everything you basically need at a decent price, mostly good staff
I stayed 5 nights single, and was given a twin room at £60/night with breakfast included. The room (en suite) was large, clean, spartan and looked out on to the cobbled street Cimburkova on the first floor. Breakfasts were very good, as much as you can eat with a lot of variety (think 'continental'). Good for stoking up prior to a day of culture. The food in the restaurant in the evening was good value too.
Great Deal for a hotel in Prague
We stayed in this hotel while in Prague, and absolutely loved it. It ended up costing us about $40 per night in May--and this included a complimentary continental breakfast that was amazing! The breakfast included many different types of food and lots of it! Our room was very nice as well. The location was not in the heart of town, but it was near a tram stop. My husband and I never took the tram however because we enjoyed just walking to the center of town--which was probably about 1 - 1 1/2 miles or so--about a 15-20 minute walk. So, it is definitely feasible to walk to the town center. Make sure you eat before leaving the town center, as there is not a wide variety of places to eat in the area of town that this hotel is in. I would definitely stay here again.
Very friendly welcome. Room was very spacious, included a table + 2 chairs and tv with 2 English speaking channels however lacked tea & coffee making facilities. Beds were very comfortable, slept well, not much noise from outside. As another reviewer has said, I too noticed a bit of dust (bedside table) but overall was clean. Hairdryer in bathroom was very convenient & plenty of hot water for baths. Breakfast was a little disappointing for hot food (quality), although to their credit they did try to vary it a little each day but could fill up on muesli/ cornflakes, fresh fruit, yogurt, fruit juice, toast, baguettes, cheese & ham etc. Enjoyed a few evening meals in the restaurant, friendly service & good value. The downside is the location, Zizkov is a bit run down & although not far from the town centre (approx 30mins walk), it's not a scenic walk (main roads/ railway/ shabby buildings), tram is 5min walk from hotel. Overall a nice hotel but would try to stay a bit more centrally next time.
The hotel is not in the centre of Prague but in one of the neighbouring districts, Zizkov. The 9 tram takes you to the heart of the city in 5 minutes and the nearest stop, Husiencka, is just 5 minutes walk, albeit, up hill!
Stayed three nights in U tri Kornek (9-11 March). For the price, it is a fabulous deal. Its location is a little obsucure but one can take a tram just three blocks away into center of old town. The breakfast buffet is delightful surprise...almost American Continental style. Feast away!
Just got back from Prague yesterday and stayed at this hotel. Cannot fault it for the price. Bedrooms were warm (needed to be - got down to -14C at night) and the bathroom excellent, powerful shower and underfloor heating.
The hotels span a one-way street, and at the moment one of the buildings is in the process of being refurbed for the current summer season. We stayed in one building and had to cross the street to eat breakfast in the restaurant. And what a breakfast - eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, great coffee, cheeses, salad and some delicious pastries - How do they do it for the price?
In all we would recommend this hotel highly to anyone wishing to stay just out of the city, as the hotel is a level 20 minute walk from Old Town Hall square.
We stayed at the Hotel U tri Korunek for four nights. Eventhough a
October 2003 Prague Visit
Hotel was reasonably clean,updated and had all the basic needs met.It had a brand new elevator and looked as if the building was recently remodeled or made into a new hotel.Rooms were quiet and sound insulated.It's located in the Prague 3 area which is not too far from the desirable Prague 1 area.Would recommend Hotel based on price and quality of services.
