Hello we had a great time!
Hello we had a great time at the Hotel Tyl. we have just returned from a 4 day break in Prague and it was fantastic. Don't worry about pick pockets-we didn't see any. Its a beatiful place with excellent beer, wine and food at a very good price. The city is beautiful. Go for the river cruise that the gay-like sailors sell just as you go onto the Charles Bridge. The Tyl was clean, polite, and efficient. All in all, an xcellent choice!
As good as 5* hotels we have stayed in!
Went to prague for 3 days in February.
Hotel was excellent - clean, good quality furnishing, helpful staff & good quality breakfast. I have no real criticism of the hotel and I think is an ideal choice for a short break. We had three nights for the price of two and it only cost £100 in total for two (with Airline Network). I think it is unbelievably good value. I have stayed in five stars hotels, which quite frankly did not match up to the quality of the Hotel Tyl.
It is located literally right next to a tram station & metro. We only used the tram. It cost 8 kronas each one way (about 20p!) - we didn't see anyone else with a ticket on the tram though! Basically you go can go either 4 or 5 stops along and walk the rest. It takes about 5 mins on the Tram to get into the central city! Wenslaslas Square is 5 mins walk from the hotel.
There are a few decent restaurants near the hotel & various types. Wenslaslas has a few as well. We couldn't be bothered to go into the city in the evening, although this was shear laziness! It is very cheap to eat, e.g. a 3 course meal (with drinks) for two cost us between 400 kronas to 800 kronas i.e between £10 to 20 (the £20 was in a tourist trap restaurant and very good quality food).
Weather was cold, but seemed to fit with the location and is what you would expect at that time of year, i.e around 0 degrees at best in midday. I would recommend a hat that covers your ears & scarf. I hate to say it, but I brought long johns & this was the best investiment I made. My wife tells me the other thing I must recommend is comfy shoes, not just because of the amount of walking you will do, but also because of the cobbly streets, which can make walking uncomfortable.
As a city it is architecturally fantastic, one amazing building after the other. Not great shopping though, except if you are into glass / cristal, wooden toys, puppets & other touristy tat. If you are a culture vulture, you will be in your element with the various musuems & places to visit. Personally, I didn't think there was that much to see after the Castle, Charles Bridge, Jewish Quarter & Old Town Square with the Asteriological Clock (you see massive crowds & then the event itself is a disappointing anti-climax). It is all relatively close together.
I would highly recommend Prague for a short visit - two or three days would be plenty - it took us half a day to orientate ourselves, but you can cover all the main tourist sites quite quickly. It has a lovely ambiance though.
One disappointing aspect to Prague was the pleathora of McDonalds & Kentucky Fried Chicken, which seemed to plague the city. Also, there is a Tesco right in the centre! (Not like the same stuff as back home inside). Wenslaslas square has Debenhams, M&S, C&A - like being on the high street at home.
Hope this is helpful.
Have just returned from Prague,stayed in this hotel it was excellent.Rooms were spottless and staff very helpfull.Could not fault this hotel and would recommend it.Would stay there again
Excellent value for money
We stayed at hotel tyl in january 05 the hotel is in a excellant location spotlessly clean and the staff very friendly and helpfull very good breakfast too i would recomend this hotel to everyone mary&billy blackpool england
Tyl next time
Ideally located - 2 mins to the metro and 15 min stroll to Wenceslas Square. The staff were very attentive and courteous. Our room was extremely spacious and well maintained - on par with a 4 star hotel. Breakfast was good and it's a pity that they don't cater for lunch & supper. Then again, there were a variety of restaurants available in the city so it was great fun trying them out. I would definately stay here again on my next visit.
Myself and my Wife have just returned from the Hotel Tyl in Prague.
What a wondeful hotel in a wonderful city,the hotel has just been completely re-built and re opened in 2003,it was great to see the use of antique furniture everywhere,the furnishings were very opulent and the whole place was immaculate and in a great location for the main sites.
20 yards from the hotel was the main tram stop into the centre although it only takes 10 mins to walk to the top of Wenceslas Square and a further 15 mins gentle walk to the old town square.
The hotel rooms were very large with a king size bed,mini bar and a lovely view over Tylovo Square.
The hotel also has 2 lifts to all floors,a jacuzzi and a gym as well as a lovely bar and a wonderful breakfast room in the old vaulted cellars
We will definatly go back to this hotel.
Tyl we meet again
Having just returned from Prague and staying at the Hotel Tyl, we just can't wait to go back, the hotel is in an excellent location, the hotel and rooms a delight so clean and welcoming, the staff all speak english and help is always at hand nothing is too much trouble. I would certainly recomend this hotel to anyone looking for a small, but perfect place to stay

... were not part of the original design but added centuries later as part of the Austrian Hasburgs attempts to convert skeptical Czechs to Catholicism. While on the bridge we rubbed the bronze plaque on the statue of St John of Nepomuk in the hopes that the legend would come true and one day we will both return to Prague. From the Charles Bridge we continued on into the Old Town Square and spent the afternoon wandering the cobblestone streets of Staré Mesto (old town) ...
... Drowned rats much? Together with see through top, excellent combo... Clearly this ment that we had to hide for shelter in a pub and have a beer or two whilst we waited out the rain! Prague was a beautiful city with its rusty orange roofs, classic architecture and out of the blue rain showers, apart from the pub crawl, the pork knuckle we had for lunch was unforgettable! No doubt about it, Prague people are hard core meat eaters! Thankfully so are Robbie and I ...
... house was restored and filled with interesting things from different time periods. A special museum told the long history of the castle and showed off all kinds of super old artifacts excavated from the site. Brittany really enjoyed it but Chelsea was bored and I was so hungry I would've (as my father would say) "eaten the boogers out of a dead man's nose". What a gross expression! Brittany's going to yell at me for that one... :) We were almost completely out of cash ...
The train trip was reasonably uneventful, except for Narelle being pulled up by the German Police when she got out for a cigarette at the early morning stop. It seems smoking on the platform is a fineable offence in Germany. Sometimes being foreign has its benefits. The train arrived in Prague around 10 am, about 15 mins late. This is not a concern at the moment but in a couple of nights we have to change trains en-route and only have 15 ...

As we searched high and low for two hours but we were left sorely dissapointed when we headed home, with our disco shoes not getting a dance.
