Travel Blogs from Prague
We had a leisurely morning in Cesky Krumlov today. The morning was spent doing some shopping, strolling the cobbled streets and eating crepes. Then we boarded a bus to head back to Prague. It is about a 3 hour ride.
Tonight we took a river cruise down the Vltava River. It lasted about 3 hours and included dinner. It was a very relaxing …
... around 3pm and the constant walking in 40 degree heat meant we were ready for home. More than anything we did not want to be caught out again in a freak storm as thins time we might not be so lucky! We headed home and had a leisurely evening, chilling out before the journey ahead to Bratislava tomorrow. Overall Prague is a defo recommendation, beautiful city, lovely people, cheap booze. It's been great! Hopefully no storm tonight but you never know!! Night ...
Well, on our first night in Prague Louie and I wandered down to Old Town. We saw Wenceslas Square and walked along the Moldova. We saw the astronomical clock and Tyn Church. We also cruised up the main drag to see the parliament building. Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. It was founded during the Romanesque period and had two Holy Roman Emporerors and was the capital of the Holy Roman Empire at one point. There are tons ...
... didn't want to put up with any more for the day. When we finally got back home for the last time, we thought it would be a good to take some melatonin. None of us felt like sleeping. But T. has the Melatonin blues and isn't fond of the strips. I bought some sublingual tablets to try instead. T. asked me what the difference between sublingual and bilingual is? She soon found out, and decided she likes them even less than the ...
Dragged Jerry around town; finally rode the street car and then took a long walk back through Wencenslas Square back into Old Town, dinner (no goulash but delicious au gratin potato dish for me, chicken courdon bleu-like dish for Jerry and dark Budvar-the original Budweiser beer- on tap). Of course, the last stop was the Easter Market for mulled wine and Trdelnik for dessert as we watched a classical symphony perform; as we finished it started to ...

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.
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".
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!
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.
