We arrived in Prague and needed to take a bus to take a metro to take a walk to get to our hotel. <yes, they have taxis, but who needs those when you can familiarize yourself with all available transist option within the matter of an hour?> 
The info desk closed so we found the bus area and did our best with the ticket machine.  Yea!! a button for english!!!
But when you press the button........the only thing that changes to english is <please press your selection>.  All the actual selections remain in Czech.  super helpful.

I think we accidently bought 4 tickets instead of 2 and didnt even wait for them all to print as we were on the brink of missing the bus1  This is course would be only the 1st and cheapest of many mistakes to be made............

After the metro and walk, we did find ourselves at the hotel.  A nice one in fact.
Apparently too nice for the likes of us.
It was abundantly clear that no one in the lobby was pleased to see these 2 backpackers.
Needless to say, they didnt think we had a carlson club card.  :>.
Really very nice place, all art deco-y and whatnot.  Fantastic location too, so were thrilled to have this as homebase while in Prague!

A shower did wonders and then we walked back outside and sat down at a traditional czech place for dinner.  Quite good and right on Wencelas Square.
