... J style and surrounded by minders.. The entourage made its way through the crowd and entered the roped off area for check-ins. Now I figured any second that rope was going to go down and the little Korean Biebster would be mobbed, but this was Korea and there is no place for chaos or shena****ns and the screaming mass, simply stopped and lined up behind the rope in a very orderly fashion and just clicked away as he checked in and went through a ...
Having a week to spare before heading to Africa, we decided to spend the weekend in Prague, 7 hours journey by train from Budapest we arrived to one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Central Prague nestles on the Vitava River, separating the Medieval Castle district and Little Quarter on the West Bank from the Old Town and the New Town on the east.
Our first full day and only sunny day in Prague we made the most ...
... is so beautiful. We also saw the torture chambers which were pretty cool to just see the horrible tools try used on people. Last night we also had my birthday dinner at a Czech restaurant where the people perform dances and fighting scenes from mideviel times. Dad also made me dance with a belly dancing wench! Hah! All in all it was a long fun day. I also didn't mention we were ...
Well another day and more rain. There are families along the Vltava River being evacuated. Memories of Brisbane floods not so long ago. We ventured out again, souvenir shopping and looking at the Charles Bridge from the bank as it was closed due to the fast flowing water. An amazing amount of water is moving down ...
... that offered authentic Czech food and beer (as seen in the photos). We visited two Christmas markets that night, gorging on a new desert called trdlo, which is a hollowed out thinner version of a cinnamon roll with nutella spread in it (photo attached). Very good!
The next day was tough, as it rained all day long. As much as it rained, we didn't let this impact ...

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.
