We have just returned from a fantastic 4 day trip trip to Prague and we are very pleased that we stayed at the Maximilian Hotel. They provided a car from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel back to the airport. A bit more expensive than a regular taxi but comfortable and reliable.
The hotel itself is perfectly located to make visiting all the tourist sights very easy on foot. Most places are within an easy walk from the hotel. Old Town Square is only 5 minutes away and from there everywhere else that you would want to see is easily accessible. Old Town Square itself and the surrounding streets contain a wide choice of eateries and watering holes to suit all tastes and wallets. There are also many guides there offering both free tours (tip if you want) and paid for tours. You can choose what you want to see and they are certainly very knowledgeable in terms of the buildings, architecture and history and convey the information in an interesting manner. You can of course do your own thing but it is sometimes nice to hear the story behind what you are seeing.The local Czech cuisine has to be tried but is certainly not for those watching their weight. Dumplings are a speciality which should be tried.
The hotel itself is clean and bright and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is plentiful with a wide choice of hot and cold items and is served in a bright and airy room. The service there was excellent.
The fact that the hotel has free wifi in all areas is an added bonus. You can facebook and tweet to your heart's content and let your friends and followers know what you have been up to. (I'm @gaznipper). Follow if you wish.
Please note that every day at 5pm in the lounge the guest relations team serve tea and coffee with a freshly baked cake. We only discovered this on our last day. The cake was delicious and if you are in the hotel at that time you should partake.
Prague is a great place to visit with so much to see and the Maximilian Hotel is an ideal base to use.
Stay there and you will not be disappointed.
