For Christmas this year we purchased each other a city break in Prague. We used Peaks of Shrewsbury as our travel agents- an excellent choice. Lovely , helpful and informative staff. We flew from Manchester with Jet 2 and stayed a the Barcelo Five for four days. The hotel was placed in a most convenient and easily accessible part of Prague. We were about a five minute walk from both the Metro Station of Andel and the Tram Station- both within a couple of minutes of the centre of Prague.
The rooms were comfortable and hotel staff both friendly and informative. We had a special deal which included breakfast and an evening meal - the breakfasts were excellent , including a varied choice of both continental and "English" styles. The evening meal menus was limited to just a few choices of starters, main courses and sweets but the quality was very acceptable -adequate is a word that comes to mind.
I have no problem in recommending the hotel as a good base to use in order to visit this beautiful and interesting city.
We decided to attend one of the many classical concerts available whilst there and were very pleased that we did so- it proved to be an evening that both of us will cherish in our bank of special memories.
No problem in also recommending the tours- we did the city tour which included a boat trip- well worth it as an excellent "path-finder"
