... after a X-Mas dinner (I quote; "I'm going to try and lie down on the bed... Oh no, wait, that's impossible!"), we traced the Vltava river towards the city centre, already entranced by the picturesque Prague Castle in the distance.
Once in the centre I purchased my first beer of the day (the first of many), which certainly quenched my thirst. We then strolled through the old town square and across the cobbled streets, making it just ...
... in theRomanesque style here and most are well preserved despite the tumultuous political climate. The first masonry under Prague Castle dates from the year 885. Legend says it was settled by prophetess and her husband. The area on which Prague was founded was composed mostly of the Germanic tribes. The Germanic tribes moved westwards and in the 6th century and the area was occupied by the migration of the Slavics. Prague Castle was founded in 1344, ...
Me 'Prague's a bit random for Vietnamese people isn't it?' Sara 'The big C' Me 'Cancer???' Well for anyone who isn't as stupid as me you'll have guessed Communism. And visiting Sapa on the outskirts of Prague is a bit like that really. You can't really pay very much for food and no one seems to have a menu or speak English so I can only guess what I ate. Actually that isn't true, the guy ...
... saving a turtle. Little surprise that i found this movie misleading and ridiculous. I also felt bad for the poor bear because he was going to day shorty after the camera crews left. Looked at a trash mag in Czeh and speculate over the gossip with Heather.

Well, it's our last day here in Prague. We have finally figured out the warren of narrow streets and alleys in Old Town and I have the coinage down too. Still, I am looking forward to some new sights. Today we went to the museum of Communism which gave a good overview of the history of Czechoslovakia under the communist government. It's a bit discomforting to think about how much some aspects of American life is becoming similar to some of what happened behind the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews K+K Hotel Fenix Prague
Literally 1 Minute walk from Wenceslas Square in a slightly salubrious but perfectly safe side-side (a couple of laughable strip bars and sex shops in the same street). The rooms are absolutely splendid, that merit 5* status. Mind blowing breakfasts served in a very posh downstairs dining area with waiter service. Located perfectly for Old Town and the Upper Town area of Prague. Staff will organise a taxi to take you to the airport (ours was a black Mercedes Limousine would you believe - worked out at only £8 GBP including tip - unbelievable!) I notice rates have dramatically increased since 2003 but if you get a good rate go for it.
Forget the nightclubs - Recommended Unreservedly
We have just spent 3 nights in the Hotel Fenix and were impressed
- the accommodation is excellent
- the staff are courteous and helpful
- the breakfast is unmatched
- location is perfect for sightseeing.
As to the nightclubs, the door staff are in no way importunate, unlike many of the other pamphleteers in Prague. Indeed they probably deter troublemakers.
Very well run hotel
Stayed for 4 nights at the K&K Hotel Fenix. Very well run hotel, excellent staff, excellent breakfast in the morning. Clean, enjoyed the seperate internet room that had nice chairs and where we could make our own espresso. Prague is the most beautiful city in the world. Only drawback was the location of the hotel, as it was very close to girlie clubs. Would return and would recommend as they are doing an excellent job at running their hotel.
I have recently returned from a highly successful week in Prague.
The hotel, K.K.Fenix proved perfect for our requirements; exceptionally clean and comfortable, superb breakfasts, very friendly and helpful staff.
The location, just off Wenceslas Square, was good. We were able to enjoy the atmosphere of the "modern" city en route to the Old Town, The Jewish Quarter, the river etc.
Just returned from a 6 night stay at the Fenix Hotel. Location was superb! However, there are several shady businesses (eg strip clubs?) right next door and down the street - with lots of bouncers hanging around all over the street. It was scary after dark - this was the only bad thing about this hotel. Their breakfast buffet was fantastic - and included in our room rate.
Prague is really beautiful!
My boyfriend and I was here during August of 2003. We stayed here for 4 nights. This was also the month of record breaking heat in Europe..Luckily this hotel had a/c, so we were very comfortable. It was a very nice hotel, and it is within walking distance to many great attractions. It is also very close to Wenceslas Square. As the other reviewers mentioned, there is a strip club right next to the hotel. In the beginning, I was pretty hesitant about the location of the hotel, but in the end, that didn't cause any problems with our stay. Overall, the hotel stay was very nice(4 stars).. Prague though is a very beautiful city and we loved it(5 stars)!! We went to London just last month, and are little disappointed compared to Prague.
Lovely hotel, pity about the strip club next door!
Comfortable hotel with attentive staff. Spent 4 nights at hotel in November 2003. Very little room to move in room where excellent buffet breakfast is served.
Ignore the neighbouring strip club
We spent 3 nights at the K+K Fenix between Christmas and New Year. We could not fault the hotel and the breakfast choice and coffee were very good. It is geared up for any outside temperatures, we had a comfortable room with excellent bathroom and shower. It is literally a stroll away from Wenceslas Square and a 10 minute walk from the Old Town Square and Charles Bridge. Just ignore the strip club next door.
