Fantastic Hotel! A review of Hotel Seifert
We stayed four nights at the Hotel Seifert and cannot recommend it highly enough!
The area around the hotel is a residential area with a few bars and restaurants, it's slightly run down but please dont let that put you off. The hotel is modern and clean, the reception staff spoke very good english and although we didnt need to use them often, they were very helpful when we needed them.
The room was quite large with a big double bed, kettle, fridge, and TV (CNN and sky news). The bathroom was modern and spotlessly clean. It had a good hairdryer and the shower was one of the best i've ever used - just what you need to wake you up in the morning! The room was cleaned and fresh towels provided every day.
The breakfast was also very nice with sausages, various eggs, breads - a bit more than the usual continental breakfast and worth getting up for.
We need to thank the previous person who posted directions from the airport to the hotel using public transport. It was so easy and hassle free we used the bus and metro all week.
If you take the 133 bus from the stop across the road from the hotel, it will take you to the city centre in under 5 minutes. I think the stop was called Starosmaska, this was right next to the old town square (with the astronomical clock) and Charles bridge - so it's a very central location. Just remember to buy your travel pass at the airport before you leave, it's very cheap and really worth it.
We went a walking tour with the Yellow Umbrella Company. This lasted nearly 3 hours for around £7, but not only was it interesting, it also helped us find our way around for the rest of the week.
We also had dinner in a restuarant in front of the Astronomical clock, I cant remember the name, but it's the only one thats downstairs from the street. It was a bit more expensive than other places around, but really worth it. The meals were massive and delicious and a live band played too. A good night and worth the extra.
Prauge is a beautiful city, easy to get around and as cheap or expensive as you want to make it. This hotel was fantastic, a great place to go back to each night and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
