... dinner. Paul had a beef goulash with dumplings. So so Czech. He loved it too, said it reminds him of mums beef with red wine casserole.
After some time at the club we went back to the hotel and crashed out again before 9pm. Haha late party nights we have been having!
We must return to prague sometime this trip. We both felt like we didn't quite have enough time here. I am sure there will be a next time however ...
... German men were extremely loud and calling attention upon themselves. Soon the conductors come by and tell ask the German men for their identifications. One of them is SO drunk that he just starts hitting the conductor and pushing him away. So as a last resort the conductor calls back up and they kick the German man off the train...and then I finally sleep. Total hours of sleep: 4
So the next morning we arrive in Prague! It's a beautiful day out so all of us just head ...
After basically living in Schipol, the Amsterdam airport, for a half day, our connecting flight to Prague (Praha) left at noon yesterday. We were greeted by a slightly rainy Praha, which really made the whole city at first look how I would have expected Communist Russia to look like back in the day. I use only my previous Rocky IV experience to conjure up that image, though. Thankfully, we didn't really care what anything looked like yesterday, as all we were interested ...
Not so warm so a better sleep, fatigue probably also helping. Up before 0600 for a shower and then computer time before heading out into the cold morning air with Don for some power walking to take sunrise shots. Few people naturally around, the locals likely thinking I was bonkers in a short sleeve shirt [it was cold enough for the jersey].
Back for a varied brekkie ie more cheeses but still mistook one bit for butter. Not an early rising crowd, the sense of ...
... in on the airports computers which everybody needs to do idividually. Thanks to that you receive a small paper which now is your appropriate ticket. I didn't know that at the beginning so lost some time asking a Czech Airlines assistant.
Everything was perfect, because even I had some overweight they accepted it (both with registered ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Denisa Hotel Prague
More than Expected
The hotel, is exceedingly well situated rigth next to the A underground line, and also right next to bus to and from airport. The hotel rooms are spacious, well equipped and airy. The room had large fridge, and coffee/tea making facilities. Also the room had nice bathroom. The breakfast were more than expected with bacon, eggs - scrambled, boiled, or fried. More than usual continental breakfast. Hotel clean, and on the days we did not want to be disturbed we werent but clean towels were left outside for us. Staff really helpful, and were going back in december!!!!!
Positive feedback about Hotel Denisa
We stayed at the Denisa Hotel in Prague. It was a perfect tourist hotel. The breakfast that they served was exceptional and was included in the room rate. It is not a hotel where you plan to stay in the room, but when you are in Prague, you shouldn't be staying all day in your hotel room.
The desk clerks were all fluent in English, the rooms were simple and clean. There was much construction in the area, so weekday mornings were a little noisy, but evenings were quiet and pleasant.
The hotel is not yet air conditioned, but all the windows work and there was a lovely breeze. It is conveniently located next to a Metro station, tram stations, and busses.
There are lovely restaurants in the area and walking around at night is quite pleasant.
Clean & Functional
We stayed here for two nights in October. Our room was clean and comfortable enough. The staff were generally grumpy and unhelpful, any request seemed like too much bother for them. We asked where the main bus station in town was and were grumpily told there was only the bus 'station' in Dejcive - nonsense. Breakfast was adequate enough with plenty of choice, although the breakfast room seems too small for all the guests at one time, so we were stuck at a table (which wasn't clean) in the corner looking at the wall. Although the hotel is in a pleasant and quiet district which is also handy for the airport, trams and metro - I wouldn't stay here again, mainly because of the staff's attitude towards their 'guests'.
We stayed at the Denisa as part of a pre-booked budget weekend break. Although the rooms are quite basic. they are clean, quietly situated and there is plenty of hot water. The beds are rather on the hard side, but our room was spacious and there was a fridge which was useful. Breakfast was very good - plenty of selection - including cereals, breads and pastries, yoghurts, cold meats and cheese. The breakfast room is quite pleasant. The hotel offers free luggage storage after check-out, safes are available and there is an Internet connection in the reception area, which sells stamps, postcards. drinks and snacks. The Denisa is in a good location - although away from the main centre, it is 15 minutes walk (uphill) from Prague Castle and two minutes walk to the Dejvicka metro stop which is on the main 'A' line.
The main reason for choosing this hotel was its location, close to the airport bus stop and Metro. We also found it's good for trams and other buses too.
We stayed here because we had a very early airport departure and the hotel is located just 5 minutes to the "airport bus stop" which is next to the Dejvicka ("DIV-itz-KA") metro stop. What a great location. It was an easy 20 minute ride to the airport (#119 buses leave every 6 minutes starting at 6 am). In additon, the metro ride to "the castle side" of the city was about 5 minutes and to the "Old town" side about 7. Metro trains run every 6 minutes or so. You get to stay in a quiet residential area on the edge of the city centre but you can get to things really quickly. Keep in mind that if you stay in much of the center of Old town, there are no metros or buses, and in fact, no vehicles allowed at all, so you might have to walk some distrance to get to transportation. The 24-hour metro pass (now, 80Kc = $3.20) is good on all metro trains, trams, and buses including the bus to and from the airport! Buy it at the airport at the "DP" (transportation) counter, don't forget to validate it (date/time stamp it in one of the yellow boxes on the buses or trams or at the entrance to the metro stations) and you're set!).
Great choice for value
My wife and I spent 6 nights here in March 2005, and were quite satisfied. The room was pleasant enough, quite clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were among the best I've had in budget hotels, in terms of variety and quality. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood 2 or 3 subway stops from the main tourist areas (which we saw as an advantage). You can walk (10-15 minutes) to the Prague Castle. The staff were helpful; for example, they were able to increase the heat level in our room when we asked. Overall, I don't hesitate to recommend this to travelers on a budget willing to take the subway. Have a great stay in Prague!
A friend and I went to Prague in December 2003 and stayed at this little hotel. For what we paid which was roughly £50 for two nights we had no complaints. The hotel is situated near the metro station so no problem with getting into Prague itself and you save money by staying out of the tourist areas. The room was ample with two single beds and although hard! bearable and there was also a sofa bed which could accomodate a third person. There was a tv and mini fridge which we used to store our bottled water and snacks which we could conveniently buy from the supermarket next door and which was open most of the time even until the early hours.Breakfast was a cold buffet selection and although plentiful was repeated from whatever leftovers were present the day before but we had no complaints-there was a good selection of fresh fruit and pastries and hot drinks and juices as well as a selection of cold meats and cheeses.We went in the winter which was really cold and only had few blankets which wasnt the best but we did ask for extra blankets and turned the heating on full whack!Cleaners were always present during our stay and changing the beds and tidying the bathroom after we had made so much mess.This is a good little budget hotel to stay in if you dont mind not being completely central in Prague-as I said though this didnt pose a problem to us as the metro system is very easy to understand!
Great budget option
We were looking for cheap accommodation in Prague and the Denisa did not disappoint. Located 5 minutes from the airport drop-off and the metro (3 stops from the old town) with a handy late supermarket almost next door. Rooms simple but clean with ample storage space and a rather noisy fridge. Buffet breakfast no worse than at much higher-grade hotels. Reception staff were all polite and spoke excellent English. At the price a great deal!
