... beer goulash. The goulash was very good, but all of the goulash I've tried so far has a very fatty meat in it, which im not super fond of. This goulash had been put into a homemade bread bowl and cooked for a while in the bowl. After dinner I was ready to crash, it had been such a long day lf biking, still not feeling better. I was so tired that I accidentally fell asleep at like 8:30 pm while I was talking to Jason. All in all a good day with a valuable lesson I can share with others ...
... music and just taking it all in. If I've learned one thing in Europe its to stop and relax, which reminds me of how crazy of a control freak I am in the US. The new piece of mind has allowed me to experience the cities in a way that you couldn't if you spent all of your time running from monument to monument. We walked down some side streets and I saw a sign for chocolate beer. Thinking that this would be the first and likely last opportunity in my life to try it, I went in ...
... it down a little by finishing the day with some touristy classics. We trekked up to the Petrin Hill Lookout Tower, which claims to be Prague's Eiffel Tower. It is nice, but I honestly like the view from the castle better. The walk to get there is fun, though. We then wandered down some sketchy paths to get to the KGB museum of all things, which turned out to be incredibly fun. The guy who ran the museum was a one-man-band and was super particular about where people ...
... and very spread out and hilly. Saw lots of animals but many were sleeping because it was really hot. I was meeting a friend who is leaving at 4.30 so I went back and got changed for the concert then met her. Then went to concert. The concert hall was sooooo nice and the concert super good. Exceptional even! There was a solo violinist who was amazing. I actually bought his cd because he was signing them. I was wanting to hear more so I got a ticket for th ...
... buildings. Hugely impressed with the famous astrological clock and enjoyed the mechanical musical performance at 11am. Also enjoyed some traditional music played on a form of bag pipe accompanied by drums. Lots to see and do.
Joined first tour at 11.30 and learnt a little more of Old Square history before heading for bus. Bus has headphones and provides comentary as we travel around the city. Our first stop was 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.
