    Original but uncomfortable accomodation

    by

    Florentina is a floating hotel built in a boat anchored in the Vltava river. The idea of a floating hotel fascinated us a lot, and we were not deceived by the hotel location and the lovely views on Prague castle. The problem with this hotel is that rooms are too small and quite uncomfortable, even for two people and a small baggage: no room to move (one of us had to stay on the bed while the other was moving) and the smallest bathroom I've ever seen! Since my husband is quite tall, he could not manage to take a shower!
    Additionally, the hotel has no car parking so if you're travelling by car you'll have to pay to park it in the nearby parking area which could be very expensive.

looking for a good hotel

by kilop1

Can you please recommend me some good and cheap hotel. I was doing search on-line and found the web-site (http://www.prague-hotels.org.uk/)which made me confused, there are so many great deals over there. Please help

We stayed in the Hotel Atos last September - it was through a recommendation in here, actually!
It was a great location, not too expensive and easily walk-able to the main sights.

Been to Prague many times and always stay at Hotel Ariston. 3 tram stops from Wenceslas Square.Excellent,clean hotel and fairly cheap. Includes breakfast.Check it out at www.hotelariston.cz but don't book direct with hotel. Go to www.hotelconnect.co.uk.Much cheaper.

Good and cheap accommodation in Prague are the botels, they are boats on the river, next to all attractions.

I stayed at the Botel Albatross once, other ones are the Vodnik and Admiral.

Travel Tips for Prague

Quiet Times

by cheekymarieh

Prague is a great place to visit early in the morning outside of the busy height of summer period. It is well worth getting up early to explore the city in its natural beauty without hoardes of tourists everywhere. Sunday mornings seem to be especially quiet.

Czechs talk quietly

by marielexoteria

During our whole stay in Prague we experienced that Czechs talked low and quietly. I don't know, maybe it's me, since I come from a place where people talk loud (without meaning that we're arguing). I stand corrected :)

less is best

by barbipez

bring an extra bag to hold more when you go home! leave your good heals at home unless you plan on using a taxi. the cobblestones can ruin your heels.

also - for walking around all day - a comfortable pair of shoes means something like a pair of trainers with a good sole! much easier on the feet

winter - it gets cold and windy. scarves, gloves, hats - those small accessories that help keep the exposed parts warm...important.

summer wear - AC is rare, and when it gets hot, it's hot. so dress accordingly. depending on where you stay determines the type of toilet paper you'll "experience" :-) hostels will use a very cheap, brown, harsh paper, where the nicer places will have softer, more comfortable paper. if you have a problem with that...bring your own!

medical - bring your own tylenol, ibp, etc...especially if you dont know language. here, you have to have a prescription for most everything...and you can't buy aspirin in the store. only in pharmacies. can be a hassle if you like photography - bring your tripod to help you get the beautiful night shots.
prague is good about lighting up the historical buildings where they stand out against a night sky.

black and white alwasy makes for great pic here in prague! quite a few parks and hills you can hike around...so bring comfy shoes. --then again, comfy shoes are a must just to walk on cobblestone all the time! bags - when walking around, i suggest a decent backpack that can hold water/snack, has inside pockets where you can hide wallet, money, etc. and also hold your maps, guide books or whatnots.

Krizikova Dancing Fountain for FREE

by tophat30

Just behind the Krizikova Fouintan arena there's a fun park. If you take the big wheel ( sort of a miniture London Eye) you'll get good panorama of the city and a good view of the fountain show FOR FREE as it will be only 100 metres away, and you still can hear the music with synchronised water.
