Travel Blogs from Prague
It's a well known fact that budget airlines attracts a unique breed of human life. Pushy, angry, loud and quite often a bit smelly. After travelling on the cheap several times we've since decided the discounted tickets are grossly overrated. Trading off your 'happy holiday place' in order to save a few bucks generally does not amount to a relaxing …
... like normal and you'll be ok. It's funny how life is like this. I'm a strong believer in karma, and there is no point trying to change the universe. I believe if something bad happens to you, you have to accept it, don't resist it or try up change it. It's the universe doing it's thing. Obviously vent about it to your heart's content. But then make peace with it and accept the universe's choice of events. So I suppose, with that introduction, I'll start at the ...

Due to the inclement weather, much of Prague is left unseen to me. For one thing, I was keen to see the St Charles Bridge at dawn, but never had the opportunity because it was closed the entire length of our stay. Now, as I stand above the city with Chloe, Prague looks magnificent and convinces me that it is a city that is worth a return trip and "proper" ...

Nonetheless here we are enjoying silly looking creatures, massive snakes, sleepy tigers and the like. My 'friend' Paddy has recently posted a picture of a hideous Llama on facebook, questioning how I could be in Prague and South America at the same time. My revenge must be sweet and brutal. I've been biding my time in search of the perfect response, and as such, hunting down the most disgusting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Santini Residence Prague
Yet another who booked this hotels based on comments from people on this website
We have just returned from a 3 night break in Prague and had decided to stay in Santini based on the reviews I had read .I am glad to say that I was not dissappointed. The suite was lovely very clean and nicely decorated. Lots of lovely little windows looking on to a courtyard.
Went to the Santini for a romantic break with my wife, and it is a fab hotel. The suites are large and with superb facilities. Staff was friendly, but one of them struggled with English. Breakfast was great and nice to have it served in the room. The decor was very 'Bohemian' and felt very authentic Prague.
We found this hotel through lastminute.com and then read some reviews on this website, and booked it based on those reviews. And I have to say a huge Thank you to all those people who took the time to leave reviews.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Santini for 3 nights in July 2006, and it was quite simply an amazing hotel. It's more liked your own serviced apartment with the most helpful butler on hand 24/7 than it is a standard hotel. There is no restaurant, so your choice of breakfast is delivered to your room at your chosen time each morning, and the food is lovely. We just ordered everything on the menu which was probably not the right way to do it but it meant we had choice next morning when it arrived.
I booked this hotel based on the three reviews available and I would like to say a great big THANK YOU to those people. You were right, this hotel was a wonderful experience! It has only recently opened having been three years in renovating. We stayed in the smallest suite which was in fact extremely spacious and had all you could expect from a top hotel including a room safe and air conditioning. Everything was spotless and the en-suite was well appointed. You can have breakfast in your suite but we chose instead to go down to the little cafe/restaurant. Breakfast offered a very comprehensive choice and the cafe did great crepes and gallettes at reasonable prices. The staff were always very proffesional, helpful, friendly and informative. The location was perfect for us being at the bottom of Neruvoda, itself a very interesting (if steep) road which led to the castle and only a 10min stroll to the Charles Bridge. We had a fantastic time in Prague and when we return it will definitely be to the Santini Residence.
Perfect city break accommodation
Lovely accommodation - booked by our daughters as a surprise anniversary gift.
Welcoming stawberries and champagne - extremely sincere friendly staff - very attentive
Ideal location - central - suitable for exploring Prague Castle and the Old Town
Room beautiful - relaxing, decor extrememly well thought out - nothing overlooked
Standardl of hygiene, which our daughters know is very important to us, was excellent - I watched a staff member clean and polish across the top of light switches in the dining room!
Liked the umbrellas offered to us when leaving on a rainy night
Inquiry about transport to airport resulted in four page print -out of suitable bus/tram links - very useful
Could confidently recommend for a "special " city break
Fantatstic hotel with lovely rooms in a lovely part of town. The staff were friendly, obliging and could not do enough to make our stay special. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough as a base for exploring the wonderful city of Prague.
Thank you all.
I booked the hotel after reading a previous review and I was not disappointed. The hotel with 9 rooms provides excellent customer service with a personal touch. I was booking the hotel as a surprise weekend away and wanted to stay somewhere special. I spent hours trawlling the internet looking for a unique hotel in a good location at a reasonable price and after a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Santini I am delighted to say that the hotel was beautiful, in a fantastic location and was really good value for money.
my wife and i just returned from prague last night and i loved my stay at santini residence so much that i have to write about it today. let me start by saying that my wife and i travel alot and this was hands down one of the best places that we have stayed at. what we look for is location, room size and quality, and the helpfullness of the staff. this place excelled in all. when we arrived in prague we stayed the first night at Andel's hotel which was ranked 5 in trip advisor. santini residence is new and had no reviews. although andels was nice the location left alot to be desired and it felt like that hotel could have been anywhere in the world. no character. then we switched to Santini Residence and fell in love. santini residence is an old building converted into a small hotel with preserved beams and frescos. all the rooms a unique and different. infact only one room is not a suite, the executive room and thats where we stayed. i was amazing in size and finish.
