Hotel OK, shame about the location A review of Hotel Duo
We had a short weekend break at this hotel. On the plus side, it has good amenities, with a good pool and sauna, although at an extra cost. Breakfasts are generous with a good choice, and the bar is quite comfortable. It's main downside is the distance from the city centre, although the transport system is good - it just takes time. The shuttle bus to the Metro is quite efficient, but usually only at peak times. When the Metro extension is finished, it will be much more convenient as it seems to be going past the front of the hotel. On a word of warning, the Metro is rife with thieves, watch out for the main interchanges in the centre. They operate in teams, surrounding you and jostle around, getting into your bags and pockets. It happened to us 3 times, and I am now minus one digital camera. The police are totally disinterested, and the locals just shrug as they see it happening - what do they care about us tourists. But Prague sure is a lovely city.
