We went back to Prague to celebrate our 5th year's anniversary in the city where my partner and I met for the first time. Plus it was his 30th birthday as well. We also got engaged this weekend, so it couldn't have been more perfect for us and there couldn't have been a better hotel than the Alchymist to have experienced this all. The layout of the hotel and surrounding area are so quaint and romantic, that we couldn't have wished for a better staging of our engagement weekend! :)
However, there are some downsides to the hotel, so therefore I chose "very good" instead of "excellent". The wifi didn't work at all in the room and it was very noisy (also during the night, which was rather odd...). The latter probably because it's a very old building. The breakfast is nice, but I wouldn't say excellent. The pancakes I ordered didn't taste like freshly made pancakes at all, but more like microwave pancakes. Also the orange juice didn't taste quite fresh. I guess that's all fine too (I normally don't really complain about that kind of stuff...), but not for a 5 star hotel and the price you have to pay to stay in this hotel (especially when you think about the fact that some people pay the normal, way higher, price for a room in this hotel).
Anyway, if you want to have a romantic weekend in Prague and you can find a good deal for this hotel I would highly recommend it, because it is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the city, of which I think is also one of the most beautiful cities of Europe!
