... they did have two sculptures of a pirate! There was also a lobster tank in the shape of a pirate ship - not that exciting but Jess keeps telling me to add it in! There ya go!
After lunch we strolled through the Jewish quarter and passed the University and then along the river before crossing over to the side where Prague Castle was situated.
It was so unbearably hot, and Jess has been suffering because she forgot to bring a hat! ...
... shots of absinthe and vodka). Everyone started with an absinthe shot but after that we decided to stop. The others on the other hand decided to play who can die the fastest and were having a competition on who's empty shot pile was the biggest. From here we went to 2 more pubs before entering the main attraction, the 5 story club with an ice bar. It as freezing but we got a drink in an ice cube and it was so cool. We left and were one ...
... towers inside. Prague is often referred to as the city of spires because there are so many towers and tall narrow buildings. For lunch I went to a bistro type place where you put your food on a tray and paid at the end. I had what was suggested to me by my walking tour guide and had fried cheese. Which is a square of cheese breaded and deep fried, it kind of looks like a filet of fish and it was served with mashed potato and sauerkraut. It ...
... and St Nicholas Church(1730's) on to the Old Town Hall and its astronomical clock(1410) which has a parade of apostles and a bell ringing skeleton every hour, and of course a story to explain the skeleton. in the square centre is a memorial to Jan Hus, a religious reformer, critic of catholic doctrines and inspiration for Protestant movement-he was executed in1465! Next we moved onto Josefov, once the city's Jewish quarter. Here we saw the ...
... and we walk along the Charles Bridge amongst a much smaller crowd of people. The temp is about 75 and we pop into a few ceramic stores on the way back. One thing that I notice here (which will be of more interest to the male readers) is the great number of slim young ladies wearing short skirts or very short shorts. This detail certainly adds to the beauty of the local sites.
On the way back to the inn we buy a watermelon and some peaches at a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel St. George Prague
After saying at the St George hotel for three nights with my wife and two friends I would recommend this hotel to anyone.Spotlessly clean, very friendly and helpful staff, breakfast a pleasure to eat in spotless diningroom. The hotel is just 200m from pavlova metro and an exelent tram system that can take you to any part of the city. There are a few reasturants very close too the hotel that serve some of the best food i have eaten (Legende and Evergreen). Well done St Georges can't wait for our next visit
I stayed at this hotel for 16 nights (from 11 to 27 of juli) the sommer of 2005, and found that it exceeded all of my requirements and expectations. The hotel is generally nice looking - it actually looks like the pictures. The staff is unbeliavable friendly and helpful. The cleaningpeople stay the whole day and clean your room whenever you decide to go out. They have a nice hotel bar/lounge, which is very social, a nice place for meeting other guests of the hotel. The only thing I missed at this hotel, was a warm breakfast (scrambled eggs), something which is kinda uncommon all over Prague.
Great Value Hotel
We had never been to Prague and didn't know where to stay, picked this hotel from an internet site and couldn't have been any happier - we thought the location was fine, 10 mins walk from the new part of town and 15/20 mins from the old part of town. Even walking back to the hotel in the dark felt fine to us (2 females).
The hotel and rooms were very clean and staff very friendly and were happy to help and give directions.
I would definately stay in this hotel again if I went back to Prague and would recommend it to anyone.
Great value all round!
Excellent hotel, great value for money
The hotel's location is not ideal in that there is nothing much to see or do in the immediate vicinity. The area is quite run down but the tourist area, however, is only a 10 minute walk. We could not find fault with the hotel itself, it was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was very good and the the staff friendly.
All in all, good value for money, the only drawback would be location.
Best hotel ever!
Having visited Prague 5 times over the last 3 years we have found the St George to be perfect for any kind of visit. The hotel is only 10 mins walk from Wenceslas square and the area is entirely safe. We have visited at different times of the year and even on dark nights in february in the snow we have always felt completely safe.There are number of restaurants nearby and an excellent one called 'the evergreen' next door to the hotel which has excellent food and is very cheap. The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms are spotlessly clean. We have stayed at this hotel every time we have been in Prague and would recommend it to anyone be it a family or a couple.
Excellent Hotel, great value for money
Just back from Prague and stayed at the St.George. Excellent value clean, tidy and very freindly and helpful staff.
The Evergreen restaurant just at the corner of the street serves great food and once again great value.
Good walk into the main square but it was welcomed to walk of the rich food.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for 1st class value.
Good Value For Money
I have just come back from an extremely enjoyable stay at the St.George. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room clean, warm and comfortable, and the breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. The only downside was that it is a good 15 minute walk to the centre of town. On the whole though, a great value hotel and I would happily recommend it to anyone.
Value for money, the St George must rate as one of the best hotels my wife and I have ever stayed in during our 37 years of marriage and travel.
St George Praha 2
I stayed in the St George on a leisure trip for three nights. The hotel was functional, the biggest majority of the staff were frindly and would go out of their way to help you, and the room's were clean and tidy. The continental breakfast was as standard across europe.
The hotel is located in Praha 2, which is slightly run-down and although fine during daylight hours, with wenceslas square and pavlova station within walking distrance, there is very little to do in the immediate vicinity of the hotel which can spoil the evening as taxi fares in the Czech Republic are exorbotant.
This hotel offered value for money, however i would reccomend this hotel for business traveller's looking for budget accomodation, as apposed to the Leisure traveller.
Hotel St George is set in the business area of Prague. This was fine during the day but felt empty and unnerving after dark. Not many local restuarants around.The hotel was very clean and bright and the staff most helpful. The breakfast room was tiled and offered a good selection of food. It took just 5 minutes to walk to the main square, less to the metro, Pavlova. It offered value for money but I would recommend that visitors stay in Prague 1 area for safety and convenience as this hotel was located away from the main roads and in rather a rundown area.
