My husband and I travelled to prague for the new year period from the 29th Dec'06 to the 2nd of Jan'07 staying a total of 4 nights.
Before travelling to prague I had emailed the hotel a few times regarding booking a restaurant for New Years eve as we thought best to plan in advance. The front desk staff had replied with advise on each occasion and their advice had been very useful.
On arriving the front desk staff were very pleasent and we got checked in very quickly. Our room was a standard room in the black tower over looking the church. The bed was larger than a standard double - really comfortable and the room was very modern and clean.
The breakfast was varied offering everything from fresh fruit to almost a full english breakfast!
Out and about we would deffinatly reccomend a trip to the Bobova Draha Prosek Bobsleigh track if you have children with you or if you are like us - big kids! However it is much cheaper if you arrange this yourself rather than using an organised trip and the front desk staff in the hotel speak very good english and are able to direct you how to get to it quite easily using public transport. Once there you can get 6 runs on the bobsleigh for what converts to about £7.00, which we felt was good vfm! Afterwards we went into the pizziaria at the top of the bobsleigh track where we had a pizza, 2 hot chocolates and 2 beers and the total cost only came to about £4.00 for everything.
Restaurants we ate at included:
*Garden at the Opera - when we spent New Years Eve, it was expensive but wonderful.
*Lascala - an italian resturant which seemed to be built into the cellars - situated just off the old town square, the food was good and reasonably priced.
*U Supa - the food was good when we got it but the waiter was so dippy I was origionally brought the wrong dish. This was slightly more expensive too.
Good Coffie shops and patisseries:
*Cafe Grand - is the only Cubist designed cafe of it's kind - apparently!!! But the hot chocolates and Muffins were great.
*Cafe Louvre - was very nice - a little way out of town, we actually ate lunch here on our 1st day - try their dumplings! This is very cheap too!
*Cafe Wow - Good place to go on a evening for drinks as it is more of a bar then a cafe.
*Au Gourmand - MY FAVOURITE! this is a french pattisserie where your can get alsorts from sandwiches and quiches to cakes and chocolate brownies, however be warned the menu is in french.
If you are planning to travel to Prague - have a nice time!
