... where I can just feel if I'm going the wrong way or not. I can look at a map, then look at the roads around me and made a match. Occasionally I've walked out of bus or train stations and just gone in whichever way felt right. And it's worked. Although now I've said all this I fully expect to walk into a big piece of trouble some time soon.
I didn't care about the hostel when I found it, being far more interested in the blue Trabant estate parked outside. Used a promotional ...
... one of which displays drawings from Children in the Terezin Concentration Camp), the Powder Tower (one of the two city gates still standing), the Jewish Quarter and the only theatre still standing that Mozart has played in. After the tour we walked across Charles Bridge and trammed up to the castle. It was definitely not the prettiest castle. It took hundreds of years to build, meaning it had many different architects work on it, so ...
... in fact Barcelona yearned to become independent from Spain. This made me miss home and appreciate the united spirit that runs across my city, my community and in most of our nation.
Barcelona was definitely part of my top two favorite cities I’ve visited. The weather was very much like San Diego’s! Barcelona was beautiful, the old historic mixed in with the new and modern. The people were so alive and friendly! If I had to choose a European city to live in, ...

I'm being to nostalgic now. I'm sure everyones in the pool it's hot as hell in IL right now. But strangely I find this day has pasted without much celebration. I guess were headed to a 5 story club tonight to celebrate, something like 15 of us. Still mostly strangers.
Happy Fourth everyone.

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.
