... had some lunch , some nice pasta dishes. Of course Rachel's wallet was not up to being used for lunch! We had a free afternoon (bonus ) so Simon started his 2nd book then went for a swim and Susan did what Susan enjoys doing in the afternoon. Prize for the first correct guess! That night we had Folklore Show with Dinner so it was all aboard (2 bus loads) for a trip to a different part of town - we went past where some embassies are and flash old ...
... owns and runs. It is called the Red Eye and is right around the corner. We were the only ones there for our stay of 2 hours. I felt kind of bad. The owner of the bar also owns the hostel and he is from Indiana. Pretty nice guy. We tried our first local beer called Svijany. It is a pilsner style beer and good cold. Beers are pretty cheap here... 32 kunas or about $1.60 each for a pint.

Raiding her hospitals supplies she nursed me back to health at no cost and I continued onto Prague, appreciating my renewed ability to smoke 2 packs a day.
Upon arriving in Prague it quickly became apparent just how much easier it is to dream than to act. My image of walking into the city, property owners throwing keys at me and desperately wanting to practice their English while guaranteeing that their contacts ...

After wandering aimlessly around Budapest we decided we needed professional help, so we enlisted the help of Brianna, a History student at the prestigious Charles university who gives tours during her summers off. What better way to learn about the city then from someone who passionately studies it. Our first stop was a 600 year old astrological clock that tells time in both bohemian time and ...
... We payed to hike up the tallest bell tower and take a look of the city which was awesome. We rode to the monk monetary after the castle to grab a bite to eat. We had roared lamb and drank some beers that are brewed specifically for the months and they have the only ipa in Prague. We returned the bikes and headed to the hostel now that we had seen all the sights it was time to drink. We headed to a five story laser club down by the main river and had a blast that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mandarin Oriental, Prague
The Hotel is well located in the Maia Strana area, the castle side of the Charles Bridge and just a few minutes walk from it. It is housed in 4 buildings around a couple of courtyards, although we never saw the one featured in the pictures on the hotel site.
Amazing in every way!
I've been fortunate enough to stay in many great hotels around the world, and this is my new favorite. The location is amazing. The building and it's renovation are striking (a beuatifully understated modern decor in a building that dates back to the 14th century). And the staff, while clearly still a little new (the hotel just opened) couldn't have been any friendlier. We were upgraded to a suite, which was the most comfortable room I've ever had. We spent four nights there and didn't want to leave. I highly recommend this property (and, for that matter, Prague).
My wife and i went to prague for a short break and stayed at the Mandarin. Having stayed at other hotels in this chain we knew the service would be excellent and we was not dissapointed, the hotel is very new and feels very intimate which is nice and the rooms are lovely, however my only two faults would have to be the food in the restaurant was okay but we felt to asian and not enough basic dishes.
The only other thing was the tv channels in the room of about 30 only 4 were in in English and they were all news channels the only alternative was to purchase a movie and to be honest the selection was not great.
As previous reviews have attested, the Mandarin Oriental Prague is certainly unique as it's housed in a converted 14th Century Monastery. There's no grand high-ceiling lobby here, or extravagant entrance. In fact if it weren't for the classic Mandarin Oriental fan symbols on the gates you might almost walk straight past.
This was my first visit to Prague, and I was eager to find the best hotel option the city had to offer. Generally, I am partial to the Four Seasons brand, so my initial inclination was to book a room at the Four Seasons Prague.
If you know Mandarin, you know to expect a beautiful property with first class service and everything to be near perfect. For those of you not familiar with the chain below is my review of their new Prague property opened a month ago. Stayed in a basic King room, but still large and beatifully appointed. Everything you could need done in a luxurious style but in keeping with the setting of the hotel itself which is an old Abbey right in the heart of Mala Strana in Prague - minutes walk from Charles Bridge and the heart of all the main sites. The bathrooms are exquisite - marble, beautiful amenities, bidet - the works. The beds are luxurious and the furnishings modern oriental in typical Mandarin style. The service was extremely lovely, friendly and accommodating. All in all a wonderful experience. The only two things that could be improved is a that the room lights were a little tricky and all were controlled by just one switch making it difficult to have only some lights on, and the Concierge team while extremely gracious and friendly could be a little more well versed on directions, restaurant reccommendations and overall information.
Regardless of the following points, the hotel is perfectly located in a quite spot. So much to see within only 20 mn walk, great restaurants around the corner. The staff, though very new at their jobs are lovelly, helpful and friendly. Nice bar area (good live music on sat. night) The cocktails were great and the bar food (though not enough choice) is delicious. Breakfast was nice, though the legs of the chairs make a really LOUD noise on the floor when moved (not what one wants to hear first thing in the morning). The treatments given at the spa are great (quite expensive) and the staff there again really professional. The hotel is new so everything looks clean and fresh. Nice, modern look which overall could benefited from extra warm colours (mostly the walls in the underground corridor!).
There is no doubt that most people that stay at this hotel will be very happy. Unfortunately for me and my partner, we did not like the way our room was set up, and this lead us to find numerous other poorly designed elements to the hotel.
Wow, Prague finally has a luxury hotel!
Just came back from the new Mandarin in Prague, they really got it right again. An incredibly charming place in an old monastery but with modern twists and the typical MO Asian hints. (similar to their NYC property). The bedrooms are really cool with their vaulted ceilings but modern design, the food and service was great too.
Really loved it, a must see in Prague
