    Very basic hotel outside the center

    by

    The first time we visited Prague in 2001, we stayed at this hotel, which is located in Prague 8, relatively close to Florenc metro station.

    What can I say about this hotel? The rooms are very "basic" with a bed a cupboard and a TV. We went in November and the heating was not working...
    Since I did not feel safe leaving the car on the street (foreign license plate) I rented a place in the garage.

    If you look at the website, you are presented with an artist's impression (i.e., drawing) of what the hotel looks like instead of a photo... If you then select a language, you are presented with a very small photo taken from behind a tree showing ONLY the hotel building.
    This is because the street looks quite bad, all buidlings were in bad shape and looked quite sad.

    The service was very bad, everyone had a very angry face, I was almost scared of talking to them.

    Check-in: The room was prepaid, but she could not find the fax from the trabel agency, so she did not want to give us the room... She finally found it and we got the keys. We were forced to leave our passports (all 4 of us!) which is actually illegal, if I am not mistaken...

    At check-out, we left the rooms but wanted to go for a walk. The lady at the reception came storming screaming "YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THE PHONECALLS". I just told her that we were not leaving and that she had both our passports and that my car was locked in their garage. She continued screaming and insisting, but after explaining the situation to her about 3 times, she finally got it.

    Overall, the rooms are not very good, the location is far from perfect. There is a 10 minutes-walk to the metro station through a very unfriendly-looking neighbourhood (nothing happened to us, but...) and I checked the prices again when we went to Prague in 2004 and the rooms were 3 times more expensive. A double now costs 100 Eur!

    Check my Hotel Florenc tip, it is located in the same neighbourhood, but right next to the metro station and with much friendlier staff.

    Unique Quality: none.

Prague to Cesky Kromlov

by AnnPeter

Hi

How easy is it to get from Prague to Cesky Kromlov? Is there a good rail link, if there is, does anyone know how long the journey takes and if it is a dau=ily schedule?
Thanks

Re: Prague to Cesky Kromlov

by Dabs

When I was looking at how to get around from Prague to Cesky Krumlov, the fastest way to get between the two was by bus as the train required a change in Ceske Budejovice. You should be able to search here for your dates, it looks like a direct bus takes about 3 hours and a train with a change in Ceske Budejovice takes about 4 hours

As mentioned above bus is easier and faster. And in Cesky Krumlov bus stop is much closer to the city centre as compared to railway station. Best choice is express bus from Student Agency.
Book here:

Warning - this bus leaves from terminal at "Andel" metro - not from central bust terminal "Florenc"!!

Some more info in my CK tip.

Travel Tips for Prague

Avoid The Crowds

by littlesam1

Old Town Square is almost always crowded. Tourists flock to see the Astronomical clock chime on the hour. There are many restaurants and lots of activitiy. So it easily becomes over crowded and unpleasant during the peak hours of the day. But as you can tell from my photo here it is not always jammed with tourists. I took this picture around 9:30 in the morning from the Old Town Tower. So to avoid the crowds visit the square earlier in the day or later in the evening. One of my fondest memories is seeing this great church in the evening with all of the lights shining on it. It takes on an almost fairy tale like appearance in the evenings.

Eurotel

by travelife

Eurotel is one of the three mobile network operators in Czech rep. and this one is known to offer the best service. So if you are likely to choose your network for your mobile, you may consider this.

~ Absinth ~

by Heavens-Mirror

In the bars & clubs of Prague, the drink is prepared by burning a small amount of absinth soaked sugar on a spoon, which you then stir into your glass of absinth and douse with water (1-2 parts water to absinth).
It is worth trying some Absinth when in Prague but its not very tasty... although you might like it. You can also buy it in small bottles and give to friends as gifts.

Excursion to Karlstein Castle

by BorneoGrrl

25 km from Prague, Karlstein Castle sits on top of Knezni Mountain and when you first catch a glimspe of it, you will be pretty amazed. An excursion will take you to one side of the castle and you are expected to walk through the forest and up a steep hill for 20 mins or so before you reach the entrance. This royal castle was built in the 14th century as a residence of King Charles IV and to safeguard the crown jewels and some important documents. The Chapel of the Holy Rood was where the crown jewels were once kept, houses a unique set of 128 panel paintings by Master Theodoric, dating back to the 1360's. Part of the original furnishing and decorations can still be seen. You also won't see some parts of the castle or the crown jewels itself
