18 Sep 2013, Wednesday PRAGUE Welcome to the inaugural post of the Truckin' with Mug and John Blog. Our first destination is Prague. The flight from Salt Lake City to Paris was fast! Watching Star Trek: Into Darkness twice helped pass the time. However, it was impossible for me to sleep one wink. We arrived in Prague …
The Czech Republic is known for their artistic glass works. I really wanted something made here but none of it appealed to me. John's mom and my Aunt Ida would have loved it. After shopping
in countless "Bohemian" glass stores, we decided to skip this souvenir idea. So it was on to see the Municipal House – the best example of an art …
After breakfast Thursday morning, we went back to the Astronomical Clock for more pics and smaller crowds. Love that clock!! While waiting for the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour we noticed one of the notorious taxi drivers rocking (and I mean ROCKING) out to “Oh Happy Day” - hysterical! We also had a chance to stroll around the open air …
... in gold. From his shoes, to his cap, even to his glasses, all is gold colored. He doesn't move for the whole time we were in the square; but some persons drop a coin in the cup he has provided. But, the most amazing act was the 2 young men performing a stunt on the edge of the square. One of the 2 was seated on the ground, his right arm outstretched, holding a 6 foot pole in the air. Holding onto the other end of the pole with one hand, and seated in ...

What a beautiful little gem. Locations just perfect. Right in the heart of the city, hidden away from the busy streets down a little cobbled alleyway. Inside is spectacular. We had the most wonderful, warm welcome on arrival and greeted with a complementary drink. How refreshing is this? A hotel that really appreciates their guests. Us customers... A rare reception that other hotels could learn from. Thank you for your friendly hospitality. No wonder you have such high reviews . We would highly recommend

Historical Traveler Reviews Savic Hotel Prague
Great Wedding and Hotel
Stayed here from 15/07 until 24 July, right in the middle of a heat wave. Hotel was great, cool rooms, clean, sheets changed almost daily and all egyptian cotton. Mini bar was good, not as expensive as most hotels.
Arrived and given nice cool drink while booking in. Shown to our room where bags had been taken (we arrived early, but this was not a problem). Staff all very friendly. Breakfast was excellant and the resturant was very relaxing.
I have to say that the food in Prague is hit and miss, some of the best places were the cheap bars in side streets and also the most friendly. The food at our hotel was good, so if we failed to find a new cafe we always knew good food was at our hotel.
We combined this trip to get married in the Old Town Hall, so this hotel was ideal as it was less than 10 minutes walk.
If you go when its hot don't do all the museums, get a tram and go a little out of the centre and walk back slowly and enjoy the views and small cafes the locals use.
The Savic Hotel is a great hotel in the heart of a great city, learn a few words in Czech and doors open.
Hotel Savic was in an excellent location and ideal to walk to all the sights this city has to offer. An old building that has been refurbished whilst still keeping the traditional style. We stayed in a beautiful attic room and although the view was very limited the decor more than compensated, with beamed ceiling, extra large bed and wooden floors. Hotel staff were extremely friendly in all areas of the hotel. Buffet breakfast was adequate and everywhere very clean.
Prague has lots to offer and we found wonderful bars and restaurants in many of the side streets these were much cheaper than sitting in the Old Square.
A ride on the funicular railway to take in the views of the city is a must and for those who can make it 299 steps to the top of the Petrin Tower gives you 360 degree view.
Our only disappointment was Wenceslas Square which is in fact a boulevard with two lanes of traffic, many shopping outlets (marks & spencers etc) and fast food.
An excellent city break, very chilled four days without feeling rushed to fit in all the sights.
A perfect Hotel In Prague
I have just returned from a wonderful few days in Prague made even better by the fantastic hotel ' The Savic'. The decor is delightful, the staff warm and welcoming, and the position is perfect for accessing the cultural side of the city. The staff contacted me prior to my visit, to see if I would like them to arrange a taxi to take me to the hotel. The price was reasonable, and so I took them up on their offer. The driver was there waiting as promised, and was very friendly and helpful. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted with a welcoming drink, and our cases carried to our room. The hotel has been decorated to the highest standard, in an 'old worlde' style, with lots of wooden beams, to add to the rustic feel. Our room was on the 4th (top) floor and was spacious and light, and had all (and more) of the usual refinements you would expect of a top quality 4 star hotel. The breakfast choice was also excellent, with a choice of cooked or cold delights. It was also lovely eating outside, as the hotel has a centre court yard. The staff were warm and welcoming throughout our stay, and I would highly recommend this hotel and would certainly book it again, if I was to return to Prague.
Hi Just had to write a review of this hotel as it is the "nicest hotel" i have stayed in.
This convertad monostary has so much character all the rooms are fantastic with mahogany furniture, wood beams on the celings,chandalires (excuse my spelling),we stayed for four nights it was only £235 in total, that was booked on easyjet hotel website.
Its locaton could not have been better only about 1minute walk to old square,astronomical clock and 2minute walk to charles bridge all i can say is just go there prague is the best city i have been to and this hotel is the best hotel i have stayed in.
I had to laugh when think you pay £35 a head for a B&B hovel in blackpool yet you can get this Beautiful "4 star" (i give it five star) hotel in prague.
All rooms have LCD TV, Fridge,Safe, and a beautiful marble bathroom the staff are very helpful and the breakfast is good with Bacon/sausage/scrambled egg etc as well as continental beakfast.
Cant wait to go back, do yourself a favour and just go you will not be dissapointed
Four of us have just returned from a week at the Hotel Savic in Prague and it was wonderful! We had lovely spacious rooms, which were beautifully furnished with huge beds with good white linen. It was a pleasure to stay there but ask for a room on the quiet side of the building as it was a bit noisy at night.
Excellent Hotel .
Hi, my husband and I have just returned from a four day weekend away at the Savic Hotel .Fantastic. The staff were very helpful and happy to book trips and taxis for you, nothing is to much trouble . The hotel room was fab, large beamed ceilings, wooden floors, four poster type bed, plasma screen TV , and a gorgeous marble bathroom. The food and restaurant were excellent, and they had a lovely courtyard for outside dining. The location is just around the corner from the old town square, and near to all the tourist attractions . If you are considering a stay in Prague, I would highly recommend this hotel.
A gem in the heart of old Prague
My wife and I stayed at the Savic for three nights on a romantic break, it has just opened this year having been converted from a monastery and the refurb has retained all of the character, every room was different and full of style. We loved it.
The owner has reruited top staff from other hotels and the whole expereince was fantastic.
The hotel has its own restaurant which was superb and is well located close to the old town.
Breakfast was okay, a lot of choice, hot and cold, the cooking at breakfast wasnt as good, bu this could just be my preferences.
Excellent value for money compared to other hotels we looked at.
Felt we had 5star room for 4 star prices.
We spent five days at the Savic Hotel from 22-27 April and as some one who is always disapointed in the hotel I have booked, this was a great surprise. It was a super place to stay, we had room 206 which was one with a painted ceiling, the room was large, with a marble bath room, the only tiny problem being the time it took to run the water till it got hot.
The staff and the owners were friendly, could not do enough to help, and would happily book excursions, taxis etc.
It was central for all of all the sites and just round the corner from Town Square
The whole hotel was spotless and I would certainly recommend it to anyone going to Prague.
Fantastic Hotel Right by the Old Town Square
We have just returned from a family reunion in Prague and can honestly say that this hotel is fantastic. The other members of our family had already booked 'top hotel's in Prague having taken their advice from all the trendy websites and guides. We however decided to
take a chance on this, as then, 'Trip Advisor unrated' hotel as we were intrigued by its recent conversion from a 13th century building into a sleek hotel. Our gamble paid off. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by friendly helpful staff who gave us practical advice from changing money to 'criminal' taxi's, and tours to shopping.
It would seem that every room in the hotel is different. We were told
by the owner who was more than enthusiastic to show us round, that in
order for them to gain planning permission they had to retain all original features of the building no matter how small. This results in a beautiful cohesion of the old and the new. We had a 13th or 14th
century fire place in our room with original beamed ceiling, the fire
place saved from modern plaster board and the ceiling enhanced by crystal chandeliers. Other rooms have nooks with ancient murals or completely painted ceilings. One room on the 3rd floor has its own staircase leading up to the beautiful space with sofa and writing table, its own walk in dressing cupboard and 4 poster bed. The public spaces of the hotel are also excellent. There is no lobby as such, for travellers to lounge in, however there is an outside courtyard with chairs and tables which spill out from the restaurant,
and on each of the floors the landings have generous seating areas with beautifully upholstered sofas and side tables.
Every detail of this hotel has been given close attention, from the modern facilities to the retention of the original character, in our opinion this is a must when staying in Prague. Literally only a few steps from the old town square, so it's quiet unlike the square itself. We are dying to back and will make sure that we stay here again. Needless to say the rest of our family were a little disappointed by their hotels when they saw ours... Happy travelling.... We hope there is availability next time we book!
We have just returned from a wonderful trip to prague last night, made all the better for our stay in the Hotel Savic.
This is a great new hotel in the heart of Old Town, when they say it is steps from the Astronomical Clock they truly mean it.
A quiet, restful hotel even though it would be in the centre of everything. Great double glazing and air conditioning.
Big spacious beds and lovely old fashioned rooms with painted ceilings or wooden beams. Two sitting lounges on both floors plus a good working lift. Please be advised that the 4th floor has many steps to it and the lift only goes to the 3rd floor. Breakfast has a good selection of hot and cold food. The restaurant has a good choice of both Czech and med food with good service. Although the outside terrace was just being set up as we were leaving this would be a lovely private place (not on the street) to sit on a good day. Friendly and very helpful staff who will endevour to make your stay as comfortable as possble.
We would have no problem in recommending this hotel or its website as it is a true reflection of what is on offer.
