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 …
... and saw beautiful architecture, cathedrals and had a late lunch in the castle courtyard. However, the one thing we really wanted to see was the castle's Crown Jewels but everyone we seemed to ask had no idea where they were. we finally found out that they were in the first cathedral we visited but that we had to pay to go see them so we past on the opportunity as paying to see a few jewels didn't seem worth it to us as we are always on a budget. After getting back ...
... Wenceslas square (Vaclavske Namesti) which is the biggest square in Prague. Very dodgy cafe in an old Tram here... called the “Tramvaj” cafe. Hmmmm ... don't know what they serve but I've heard it's hard to get in!
There are 23 different religions represented in the cultural mix in Prague. No official forms are allowed to ask people to state their religion so there is no conflict, according to our tour guide. If only it worked that way in the rest of ...
... with rain and there was a brisk wind, so we decide to make our way back toward our bed and breakfast. Before heading back we walked to the National Theatre on the Vltava River ad walked along the river past the Dancing House back to our room. It was 13:30 when we returned to our room. We had spent 4 hours exploring parts of the city. We decided to spend the afternoon in our room. First reason is because I am still getting over being sick, Ryan has caught it and is ...

I could just imagine the hundreds of thousands of discouraged West Berliners gaining inspiration and hope as President Kennedy offered encouragement with his famous line, "Ich bin ein Berliner."

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.
