Doesn't look like the picture much... A review of City Club Hotel

Stayed for a long weekend there for my birthday recently and I'll give you a quick round up.

Staff - Very helpful and pleasant, nice friendly people.

Rooms - Ok for us, we were in the roof with a skylight with no blind and it was very hot - had a fan though and all we needed was a bed for the night so it was fine.

Breakfast - skip it. It's a continental breakfast, so those looking for the full english need to look elsewhere. Getting a full english, non-continetal breakfast is a toughie in prague - I'd recommend Bohemia Bagels on the Prague Castle side of town or at a push MCDonalds if you must.

Location - 5 mins walk from Pavlova, 15 mins walk from Wenceleslas Square - not bad at all, anyone saying longer than that is 1 leg short, 3 foot tall or just lazy.

Other items of note for Prague:

PragueCard and Prague Passport - no one in the metro stations knew what this was or how to use it - it's supposed to grant 3 days travel on the entire public transport system in Prague, but it's no good if no one knows what it is. Also the discounts aren't well explained in the discount book - there's one for a blacklight theatre show, they don't tell you that there at least 5 simultaneous showso n at various locations - so be careful you get the right one. Also included are discounts for a Prague Castle - it is not THE prague castle, but a fortress called Vyeshrad further south.

Transport - we actually found walking around to be fine at all times of day so decided not to use the transport system at all, following problems with the 3 day travel booklet mentioned previously.

Credit Cards - plenty of ATMs and banks with indoor ATMs accessible via your card to unlock the door. BUT, make sure you have cash as lots of places, even restaurants, don't take ANY form of card.

Restaurants - fantastic food, very cheap, a very good 3 course meal for two cost less than £25. Restaurants tend to be accessible from a doorway in the main street only, you then follow a short corridor and take stairs down to one of the many converted wine cellars that have become restaurants in prague. The food is great, cheap, staff are good - brilliant.

Tipping - a general rule is, if the bill comes as a nice round number, thy've already done it, otherwise add a little bit, don't go overboard and check the bill says 'service not included' as required.

Worth visiting?

Damn right - good hotel, good location, good food, have a good time!
