... magical but we couldn’t find any!
As we walked into the old town and then into the Old Town Square we hit the jackpot with Christmas markets! Massive Christmas tree in the centre also to complete the mood. By the square is the famous Astronomical Clock, it is the third oldest being first installed in 1410 and the only one still working. Every hour it chimes and the characters around the face move and little windows reveal other characters. ...
I made a homemade tomato sauce for my noodles and at the hostel they had beer pong that I played and won a game of. It was the most simple beer pong I have ever played. No house rules. Also, I would like to make a few things clear to everyone, especially my parents. First, when you play beer pong in Europe, they actually put beer in the cups that you drink when you lose. In the US (at least at UND) when you play you fill the cups with water and take a sip of a ...
... a big trip like mine, freshly started a couple of days before. He seemed like a really nice guy, a bit older and therefore wiser and kinda in the same mindset as me. We got to chat only for an hour or so in the room and then I only saw him again before leaving, but I wish I had kept his contacts or so.
And that was it. After booking my bus to Vienna I left Prague around lunch time on Saturday the 29th of June. This one kept me wondering how different ...
Last day in town and we had time to quickly czech out the castle, which although smaller felt more like a castle than its big brother in Prague. This was probably due to the fact it had a moat with two big brown bears which we spotted by surprise. Ticks all the boxes really. Also had some cool views out over the town and river.

We crossed over the Charles Bridge, named for Charles the IV. Today is it a pedestrian only bridge and has some wonderful statue’s every so often along it. One the statues depicts the persecution by the Turk’s of Christians, another statue is said to grant wishes if you touch it so both Ron and I made our wish and touched the statue. Supposedly ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Venezia Prague
We arrived at the hotel to be advised we had had to go to a different hotel, we were quite upset but was assured it was not that far away. The hotel receptionist took us to the Hotel Halakova which is part of the Hotel Venezia group and it was located literally around the corner. They made sure we were aware where the hotel was, pointing out certain landmarks and street names the number of the hotel (the streets have names, and two lots of numbers) so that we would be able to find our way back if we got lost in Prague. We had our luggage taken to our room....room is not the word for it, we had near on a full apartment, half the ground floor in fact, it was clean, airy and just fantastic for the budget price we had paid. we had four very large rooms for just the two of us. The furniture is sparce but anything more would have looked silly. The bed has to be one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in whilst away and although the breakfast is basic, it is enough to keep you going, again taking into consideration the price paid. The staff where amazing, always willing to help, regardless of what time or even at short notice, E.g. it was my boyfriends birthday whilst away and I asked late Saturday night if a cake could be organised for Monday morning, thinking "not a chance", they actually took interest in how old my boyfriend would be, what type of cake and how much to spend. Monday morning came, the staff brought out a huge cake with 25 candles on it and it cost alot less than anticpated, again not something I have known a cheaper hotel to do. We were that impressed we even thanked the staff by giving them a thank you card (in czech of course), flowers and a bottle of wine to say thank you, we have no doubts of going back to Prague and do not want to stay anywhere else apart from this hotel. we highly recommend it and have infact told our friend to stay there who is booking to go to Prague.
Very clean and well looked after hotel with friendly staff.
Great place to stay close to town.
Friendly and warm Hotel
I chosed Hotel Venezia because of price and location, in the centre of a wonderful city like Prague.
I was really satisfied about my room, nice, cleaned and quiet.
Receptionists were helping me for any informations and they were really polite and friendly.
Breakfast is not abundant but acceptable.
Spent 3 nights at Venezia, in March 2005, and have no intentions of doing that again, if i should go to Prague again.
Not for the disabled
Three flights of stairs from lift to fourth floor, three keys to access room section of hotel. Bed not changed in whole stay and builders working from 08:00! Would be worried about FIRE!!! Only one way out.....
Good For the Price
Stayed six nights at the Venezia in September 2004. The front desk, especially Slavka, was very helpful and spoke English. The Hotel is adequate, the rooms are good and the breakfasts are enjoyable. The food is fresh and tasty. Towels are changed only if you ask. The price is very good since the hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Wenc. square. Hair dryers are available at the front desk, but we did not find that out until the day we left. I would stay there again if we go back.
Stayed at Hotel Venezia Prague from 11-16 March. Beside IP Pavlova and 200m from Museum. Central and at the price for the location it is good value.Rooms are sparse and while hotel is 3*, 2* would be a fairer assesment. Staff friendly and have good english. Breakfast contintental 2 bread rolls per person , OK if not starving. Staff somewhat reluctant to change towels on a daily basis, rooms cleaned on a daily basis. The hotel is excellent for those on a budget and not looking for a very high standard.
Basic but adequate
Would not call this hotel a 3 star, more a 2 to 1 star. Ideal location, situated between Muzeum metro station and Pavlova metro station.
Continental breakfast served which is light but adequate. Rooms clean but a bit shabby. Ideal for a base, if you are aiming to be out all the time. Staff friendly and English speaking. Ideal for those on a budget.
