Sorry to be negative but do you actually believe #3? If so, not sure why you would bother visiting.

In the top right 'search' box, type 'William' and you will see info on the hotel.

Hi,

if you go to my profile you can read my trip report dated 7th Dec 2007 - travelled there for 4 days in mid November 2007.

stayed in Wenceslas Square, and was worried about a lot of the comments I'd read - but my girlfriend and I walked around at night completely safe; never came across any prostitutes, vagrants etc

All in all it was a great trip, and we loved the area despite recommendations to the contrary.

any other questions just give me a shout.

cheers

Andrew

I have been checking EuroAgentur Hotel William especially because of its location. True you see few reviews about this hotel but those there are are positive, aren't they? I often stay in Mala Strana area one tram stop farther (Ujezd) than that (Hellichova)that is near William. Willam is only a stop away from Malastranske Square stop (St.Nicolas Church is there). Very central and good location, less than 5 minutes walk to Charles Bridge, even closer to Maltese Square with nice cafe/restaurants, and this may reassure you about the security issue but the hotel is close to embassies, there is one I think Finnish behind the hotel and at above mentioned Maltese Square there is a nice bulding of Japanese Embassy. I'd say you won't have much chance to bumping into prostitutes there. At Wenceslas Square you should have more chance, if any, for that.

The church of Infant Jesus (it should have another name but I forget) is on the other side of the street from Hotel Williams and just a little closer to Malastranske Square.

If you as a male walk down Wenceslas Square you probably will be approached by prostitutes,they don´t always look like you expect them to and if you walk with a girlfriend they wont bother you. But dont worry,they are not dangerous,just tell them no'thanks I'm not inerested and keep walking

I went to the BBC link and 32 - 40F degree weather in mid November doesn't concern me as much as the normal hours of sunlight. Two Hours... is that average? At what time of the day should we expect a little sun?

In the areas you`ll be walking there is no danger. So far (more than 30 days in total) i`ve run into prostitues 2-3 times (when i was with my girlfriend she didn`t even approach) and once on guy selling "grass" ... 99% of sales persons are more pushing than this.

I`ve been in Prague 3 times in November. It`s not cold but it`s cloudy and rainy.

Mytastebuds - November in Prague is the same like November anywhere in western Europe or North America ( eg. Paris, London, NYC, Chi, Boston). It likely won't be sunny as it's fall - grey, rainy, possibly foggy and cold. Just like fall in any other city, though you might get sunny day. It wil start getting dark around 4-5pm and it will be dark until 7am in the morning or so. It's like winter in Scandinavia/Northern Europe.

I am not sure what your BBC link refers to, doesn't make much sense.
