Prague, the capital of Czech Republic is a popular weekend city break, and after spending 5 days there myself, I can see why.
It’s historic old town square, delightfully colourful buildings, friendly locals and tasty food, make it a loveable city.
Many people will flock to Prague for the obligatory hen/stag weekend, and so as well as the colourful buildings, you’re bound to bump into many colourful characters also.
With that in mind, it is a great idea to stay in a centrally located, and comfortable hotel, where you can get a good rest, allowing you to have enough energy to get out and explore the next day.
During part of my stay in Prague, I hooked up with the team at the Park Inn Hotel. A Hotel that I have stayed with on many occasions this year, and which I love, for their comfortable beds, great food, facilities and staff.
The Park Inn Hotel is centrally located. A short walk from the Vltava Riverside area, and a 30 minute walk from the main hub of the Old Town, which when walked, didn’t actually feel that far.
Close enough to the city, but far enough from the noisy party goers, so you can actually get sleep at night; the best of both World’s.
As soon as you walk into the Park Inn, in Prague. You will be impressed by its interior lobby. Stunning flooring and a lot of light, to give it a great bright and welcoming feeling.
Within the lobby, there are plenty of areas to sit and chill out, or meet clients, if you happen to be staying for business.
Bar and Grill
There is a great bar and restaurant (called the RBG Bar, and Grill), serving both bar snacks and full sized meals at many times during the day.
If you are staying at the hotel for business, there are meeting rooms, which are well set up whether you are meeting a select few clients, or hosting a whole meeting.
There is WiFi provided throughout the hotel, and it is fast enough to do whatever you need to online.
One aspect to travelling that I often don’t like, is getting out of my fitness routine. So when I stay in hotels with a gym, I am delighted.
The gym has a range of different equipment. From Gym balls and weights, to a treadmill, rowing machine and static bicycle.
And when you are done with your workout, you can always chill out in the sun in the rooftop, overlooking the city.
Hotel Room and Facilities
I stayed in a business friendly room, which was a perfect size. There was a large and very comfortable bed. The windows were double glazed, so kept a lot of the traffic noise out.
I was provided with a lovely bowl of fruit and fresh water, and there was a mini bar that could also be used, with a range of drinks and snacks.
A desk was handy in order to be able to catch up with online work, and there was a TV to catch up on the news from home.
The bathroom in the room was immaculate, with a ample sized shower, fluffy towels, hairdryer and mini toiletries.
I slept incredibly well, and felt that the room had everything I needed for my stay.
For a Good Morning; choose the Park Inn (Breakfast)
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know of my love for food. Which is why I often choose hotels that include breakfast as part of the room price.
Breakfast is the best meal of the day, and so I like to feed myself up, before a day of exploring.
The choices during breakfast time at the Park Inn will make it difficult for the most decisive of people. The Park Inn serve hot and cold options. From muffins and pastries, to cooked breakfasts, such as eggs and bacon.
There are a select of fresh teas, coffee and juices, as well as cereal and porridge.
If only I could sit and feast there all day, I may have got to sample all that was on offer.
Breakfast is served from 6.30am to 10.30am, and there are plenty of places to sit in the large dinning area.
Overall, I had a wonderful stay in the Park Inn. It makes a great option for visiting the city of Prague.
