Travel Blogs from Prague
This morning was a planned city tour which took everybody by bus to Prague Castle early as to get to see the morning changing of the guard. From here was the start of the walking tour where you passed through 3 courtyards and on to visit St Vitus Cathedral. Coffee and cake at Salm Cafe with a view of the city of Prague and after this break it was …

The weather was perfect for the cruise, the buffet was good and the jazz/pop quartet on the top deck was entertaining. It was a nice change from the steady diet of classical music. Our table mates when we first arrived on board were two elderly British ladies, who insisted we share their bottle of wine...they were tipsy after about a half glass, very funny.

We got dressed up for our night out and enjoyed the opera immensely, however, neither of us were huge fans of the plot. Spoiler Alert!

Historical Traveler Reviews K+K Hotel Central Prague
Beautiful Hotel - Great Location
On my recent visit to Prague, I had the pleasure of staying at the K&K Central location. The decor was impressive and the glass elevator was a nice touch. The room although not extremely large (we stayed in a triple) was very clean and comfortable with nice touches such as heated floors in the bathroom. The location was good in a fairly quiet area but in close proximity to old town square, the Charles Bridge and the Jewish quarter. The staff was professional, courteous, friendly and efficient. We particularly enjoyed a "do it all" girl named Petra who worked in the bar, served room service and provided sightseeing tips and insights on the local eats and spirits. I would highly recommend the K&K Central in Prague and hope to stay there again on my next visit to Prague.
Really enjoyed our short stay at the K+K Central
We stayed here from 2 - 5 December 2004 on a short weekend break organised through expedia. This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, and was excellent value for money. The location was great, within easy reach of the Old Town on foot. A metro station is 100 yards away. The hotel is beatifully refurbished by a British architect, preserving beautiful period detail, including art nouveau brasswork, while it has every modern amenity including free internet access. Rooms are extremely comfortable, with underfloor heating in the bathroom and flatscreen TV, with mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, etc. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff are welcoming and helpful, and the breakfast is highly recommended, including the free Bohemian "champagne".
The next time I am in Prague, I'll stay here again.
The only slight downside is that there is no view, however it is very quiet and peaceful.
K + K Central Hotel, an Art Noveau Treasure
Formerly a cabaret theater, The Central has been beautifully restored. The architectural details are amazing...delicate metal railings, ornate light fixtures, stained glass windows...all combined with a contemporary warm white interior accented in red, lime green and lavender. Rooms have wonderful, fluffy down comforters. The service was very nice. Breakfast is ample, served in a pleasant open setting. Free internet in the lobby. Location is quiet. Near the Powder Tower and the Municipal House. Terrific!
Art Nouveau Treasure
I just got back from 6 days (9/28-10/3/04) at the K+K Hotel Central. I love this hotel chain. The Central is the 4th of the K+K's I have used. Behind the beautifully restored Art Nouveau facade is a modern facility with contemporary furnishings complementing the extant period architectural details. No complaints here about the rooms. Beautifully furnished with internet connections, flat screen televisions, and comfortable beds with fluffy duvets. The bathrooms may be small to some but I found them to be perfectly adequate and very well appointed. The breakfast is served in the converted hotel caberet room, a very exciting space. The buffet is wonderful with a wide selection and even includes champagne. The staff is all very friendly, helpful and efficient. And the location is excellent. Close to a metro stop and within walking distance of most sites.
Great for a getaway in prague
I just got back from a weekend (October 2-3, 2004) in Prague, and based on the reviews I booked K+K Central hotel. This was a great choice: clean, modern, comfortable bed (finally a hotel with decent bedding!), great location easy access to everything, perfectly fine breakfast buffet, free internet, etc. What more can you ask, really? And even pretty Czech babes at check-in. No complaints at all -- book with confidence.
Convenient, Clean and Classy
This recently renovated hotel is a great find - steps from the Powder Tower and Old Town, it was the perfect starting place for exploring the full city. A short walk from the train station, our room was available in the the early afternoon.
The room was nicely sized. The bathroom was rather small, but lacked nothing. The "heated" floors were a welcome luxury.
The new locks on the doors - magnetic system where by you need to twist the dial below the handle - were a bit confusing, but easy enough to use.
The breakfast buffet had lots of choices, and Czech touches - sausages, pastries, etc that were welcome discoveries.
Staff was very helpful with directions, post and airport transfers.
Modern & elegant, fantastic location, highly recommended
We , we got the CEDAZ minibus, which dropped us off at Republiky Squarehave just come back from 4 days in Prague. The hotel is excellent, the location is very convenient and we walked everywhere. The room we had was modern & elegant and clean in design, in fact the whole of the hotel was well designed. If you like staying in elegant places, K K Central is the place to be. Especially liked the glass reception desk, reception / lounge area and breakfast room. LCD TV, fluffy duvet, free internet etc were all lovely touches.
On arriving at the airport, 2 minutes walk to the hotel and cost 90 Kc each. The journey only took 20 minutes, very convenient. We were first time travellers to Prague and found the minibus service easy to use, again highly recommended.
Modern and Stylish
Excellent central location near the Powder Tower and Municipal Hall. The interior is very modern, vibrant colours, but has been wonderfully restored from an old theatre. In fact the breakfast room is in the old theatre and is surrounded by wonderful lighting. The rooms were disappointingly small, especially the bathroom which was minute! Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Free use of internet was a bonus, although the breakfast could be improved, it was just about adequate.
Great Location - Friendly
Just spent 3 nights in this new hotel. Staff great - free internet access in lobby and room. Breakfast is included in price and was very good. Location is perfect and we walked everywhere. Great city. Would stay here again. Even when our airport pick up did not turn up and we were late they got their hotel driver to take us there (not free - but I would not expect it to have been) and we caught our flight.
What a charming hotel!
It is a first class hotel in the centre of Prague.
Everything is within 5-15 min' walk: Metro & tram station, shopping, restaurants, jazz clubs, theatres as well as most of Prague's famous sightseeing like Carole's Bridge.
We stayed in a 2-bed room that also had bathroom,flat-satelite tv, safe,a very small fridge,mini-bar and everything u need to make a hot cup of coffee or tea for free. Ah! and free internet connection for our notebook.
We slept in the softest pillows and duvets ever! Trust me it really makes a difference after a 6-hour walk around the city!
Breakfast was also a revelation as one could find almost everything on the buffet.
As the hotel has just opened one month ago everything was very very new and attended with a discreet touch of luxury that was very nice and pampering!
The hotel staff was also very helpful and always with a smile (esp the girls that served breakfast like Eva)
Overall a great first class hotel, in a great location where you feel like home (only better sometimes, see breakfast and pillows :)
