Hotel St. George

... at noon and we able to witness the changing of the guard. It was cool, but after witnessing it at Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in D.C., this was a lot less... professional. At the top of the castle, we were able to go inside the Gothic style St. Vitus Cathedral. Stained-glass windows lined the church on both sides with the smallest little pieces- almost mosaic-like. You'll have to check out the pics!
We then visited the Old Town ...
... all around, the old town, the new old town, amazing architecture and history. We made our first stop in the town square to see the astronomical clock, an amazing piece of history. It has dials for the sun and moon, the seasons, the day, the signs of the Zodiac and a few dials that I can't remember. There are four figures, two on either side of the clock. One of the figures on the right is a skeleton. On the hour, he rings a ...
As the train sped out of Germany and into the steep, pine covered hills and mountains of the Czech Republic , we were in many ways moving further further from home- the language became increasingly difficult to comprehend for us English travelers, the prices for everything significantly cheaper, and the jobsworth ticket collectors were being replaced replaced by those with a personality: Since me, Brian and Ethan had missed ...
... safer from pickpockets here than in Western Europe, but it was still an ugly reminder that you have to be super vigilant about your stuff.
We took a nap in Prague since we didn't get any sleep on the train. That's another strike against RailEurope. They told me we would have beds on the train and instead we had a seat in a car with 5 other people. Kind of crummy. Just book your reservations when you get to Europe. ...
... little shops.. however you couldn't really take your eyes off the ground as the stones were super slippery!!! We learnt all about the symbols above the doors however, it was really hard to hear Charka at times because she just had a little hand-held speaker for all 50 of us to hear... so I missed a fair bit of the history!
We then passed down in front of the John Lennon wall. I love the fact that John Lennon never actually visited Prague.. but it's a wall where ...

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.
