The Barcelo is in the Old Town district of the City very close the Town Square, it is within easy walking distance of all the major attractions but in a quiet location.
The hotel is in a picturesque old building but has only recently been very tastefully converted into this modest boutique hotel. The staff were all very friendly . Our visit coincided with the first 'volcanic ash' incident and the staff could not have been more helpful towards the many stranded guests.
The complimentary breakfasts were of a better than average standard. I emphasise complimentary because we actually paid extra when it appears to have been free, so check when booking.
The rooms were to a very good standard, our 'Junior Suite' with its separate sitting and TV area was particularly nice and housekeeping always kept it clean and tidy.
Prague has so many places to visit there are too many to list but do walk over the Charles Bridge and explore Mala Strana and beyond up to the Castle.
There are also numerous places to eat and drink but be aware that you will pay a lot more in tourist areas such as the Old Town Square than you will if you walk a few extra yards down the side streets. For example a couple of hundred yards from the Barcelo is a small restaurant bar called Amigo, the food is excellent and very reasonably priced.
Similarly if in Wenceslas Square go into the Lucerna shopping arcade and go upstairs, passing under the upside down horse (you will see what I mean when you get there!) to the Lantern Cinema bar, great location and very cheap. Then nip up Stepanska past the Radisson and turn right and follow the signs to 'Jama' another excellent little eatery.
Prague is famous for its beer and the Pivovarsky Dum is a must visit micro brewery pub which also serves great food. It is a little out of the way but easy to get to by tram and is featured in all good guide books.
The Golden Rules for Prague are wear good walking shoes and don't be afraid to use the public transport, explore and even get lost a little, there are plenty of bars to mull over your map in!
