Stayed in the Ventana on a short city break at the end of April and I must say, Prague, the hotel and the staff did not disappoint.
We arrived at late morning and the room was not ready (I specifically requested room 35 - excellent double aspect room with views down to Old Town Square and Tyn Cathedral) which was not a problem. Went for a walk around the centre to familiarise with the location and on return to the hotel a couple of hours later the room was ready and our luggage in our room.
The Room - As previously mentioned, room 35 on the 3rd floor is an excellent size, one of the larger hotel rooms I have stayed in around Europe. 3 large windows giving excellent views over the street below leading to Old Town Square and Tyn cathedral. Everything you would want and expect of a room in a hotel of this kind. Breakfast was nice, large selection of cold meats/pastries etc. Breakfast room is actually the library and looks out over Tyn cathedral, large, bright and an excellent setting.
Prague - Beautiful city, breathtaking scenery at every turn...I will definately return. Charles bridge is nearing the end of a major re-construction at the moment but is still a wonderful place. The roof top terrace atop the Hotel U Prince on old town square is definately worth a visit. Wether it's for evening meal or just a drink, I would reccommend going up to the 6th floor and enjoying the wonderful views over the Astronomical Clock and Tyn Cathedral. Particularly found around sunset that the views over the rooftops are suberb, and with the sun setting behind Prague castle upon the hill there isnt a better viewpoint in the city. To get to the terrace go into the main entrace of the hotel, straight to the back of the lobby and take the lift to the 4th floor. At the 4th floor you have to get out and walk the final 2 flights of stairs to the roof. Prices for food/drinks are average for central Prague. 3 beers, 2 cocktails and 2 main meals cost 68 Euros/CZK 1600 including service charges etc. In London/Paris you would expect at least 4X that amount for the setting alone.
In summary, Hotel is one of the best in Prague, perfectly located, clean and tidy. The staff are excellent and attend to every detail. Must thank them for dealing with my request. Would definately stay here again.
Finally, as written so many times here, prague-airport-transfers.co.uk provide an excellent service. £40 for the return journey in a private car, no hassle, both drivers were on time and spoke good English. Would definately use their service again as the yellow cabs are notorious for overcharging. Notices and signs all over Prague, in hotel information guides etc not to use them if possible.
