... I was ready to leave.
My first day alone I got so lost, on purpose. I wandered and turned until I had made a huge circle and wound up back at the river. I was completely blown away by Prague's architecture and intricate sculpture, so getting lost wasn't an issue at all. I eventually found my way to King Wenceslas Square by the National Museum, where there was live music, patio umbrellas, and shopping! ...
... turntables to spanners and old newspaper clippings from Paris advertising soap. I couldn’t be certain, but after I sat down in a dark inconspicuous corner with my first beer, I think I spotted a mummified monkey head swinging gaily in the alcove nearby. I also couldn’t help but spot the basement, sealed off for the time being with a very alarming warning sign not to enter. It occurred to me that the earlier tour could have been an elaborate plot to torture unwary tourists ...
It's 12:30pm on a Tuesday and me and my mates from school are at the local pub tucking into some goulash and a few pints. There is an excited energy flowing between us as we devour our local brew in a smoke induced haze, relishing the culture and the opportunities that it affords us hedonists. We smile, we laugh, and between mouthfuls of heady ale and heavy, oil laden food, comes the indiscernible murmur of conversation. The food is amazing, the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tyl Prague
Loved the tyl
stayed at the tyl jan 05 rooms good size and very clean, staff friendly and helpful. one minute to metro and trams old town 20-25 minutes walk. plenty of bars and resturants close by if you dont want to walk.
would go back again to this lovely hotel and city, but maybe later on in the year as it was very cold in january.
have recommed it to friends who are going in may
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
