|Subject: Re: Prague Lodging|
We were in Prague for 6 days early in October and thought it WONDERFUL! However, Prague is still developing its tourist industry. We stayed at Hotel Anna, a small hotel in the Vinohrady section of Prague. Our room was delightful and large but our traveling companions had a room that really was a single that was stretched to be a double. It was an easy walk from there to the "top" of Wenceslas Square and the metro station, and the trolley stops were very close. They served a wonderful breakfast in the mornings with coffee that pleased our taste buds. Their rates change with the seasons. They have a website: http://www.hotelanna.cz They also run another small hotel, Hotel Dependence, about 2 blocks away that has just been renovated and has a computer for the use of guests of either hotel. It also serves a complete morning breakfast.
We found Rick Steve's "Prague & The Czech Republic" a wonderful resource for our stay there. If you have time, visit Kutna Hora (and its creepy "Bone Church), an hour or so outside Prague, and Terezin*, the "model" Nazi concentration camp and prison for enemies of the Third Reich. Public transportation can get you to either location. We were disappointed in the quality of the half day tour of Prague we took. You can do better with a good guidebook and the subway/trolley/bus system.
At any rate, we'd go back in a New York minute. Enjoy! Carolyn Austin, TX
