We recommend the Mucha! A review of Hotel Mucha
We returned last night from three wonderful, chilly days in Prague.
It's a wonderful city with much to see, do (and eat! dumplings!!).
The modestly priced Hotel Mucha makes an excellent centre for a short break. Conveniently situated nearby is the Florenc metro and tram station. We walked a lot on day one, then used the trams all of the time, particularly as our 2 year old son thought they were wonderful (as did we... heated seats!).
All of the mainly young staff at the Hotel Mucha were extremely helpful and friendly (in line with most other Czechs who seem v courteous and polite). Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast time offered plenty of choice. Our son even found Teketubbskies (!) on TV.
The whole hotel has been renovated since the floods of Aug 2002, and is to be recommended. We'd definitely return.
A short walk towards Republic Square is the Imperial Cafe which is always busy, beautfully designed, and offers well priced hearty food.
We'd also recommend catching the No8 tram from outside the hotel across the river and up to the Castle. Then enjoy meandering back via St Vitus Cathedral, the Royal Palace, Golden Lanes etc, into the Little Quarter, across the fantastic Charles Bridge, over to Old Town Square and back towards the hotel.
If you go in January, the city is beautiful but very cold. Wrap up as we did and you won't regret it. Enjoy Prague and Enjoy Hotel Mucha.
