Great hotel, very convenient for sightseeing, helpful staff, in a breathtakingly beautiful city.
On this our first visit to Prague we stayed at the hotel Tyl with another couple. The staff were friendly, courteous, informative and helpful, booking us in on a boat trip and organising a taxi back to the airport for us at the end. The hotel room was very comfortable and had extremely effective double glazing which completely blocked out the noise from outside so that you would never know you were overlooking a busy street with trams going past. We all slept extremely well. The bathroom was spotless and the shower hot. The only downside was that there were no tea or coffee-making facilities in the room, although these could be obtained in the small bar in reception. A returnable deposit is required if you want to use the room safe.
Breakfast, served down in the well-appointed basement, was more than adequate to set you up for the day, offering cereals and yoghurts, tea, coffee and fruit juice, bread, cheese and ham, cooked sausages and scrambled egg, rolls and honey, fresh fruit and sweet brioches. There were numerous cafes and restaurants in the immediate vicinity so eating out was not a problem at all. Beer is very cheap compared to English prices.
Prague itself is a gem of a city and easily accessible from the hotel using the excellent integrated transport system. Tram 22 to Prague castle runs around every 7 minutes from a stop which is lietrally one minute's walk from the hotel. 3 minutes takes you to the metro station (IP Pavlova). You can use the same ticket on either mode of transport and both systems are easy to negotiate even if you don't speak any Czech. English was readily spoken in most bars and restaurants, but not necessarily elsewhere. We were very struck by the cleanliness of the streets.
In addition to the standard tourist areas such as Old town square, the castle, the Jewish quarter and Charles bridge (all easily accessible and well worth a visit), the rest of Prague was a wonderful place to wander round with something new to discover round every corner. We particularly enjoyed our guided tour of the Klementinum (near Charles bridge) which apart from being a classical concert venue is also a museum of astronomy with breath-taking views of the city from the roof. Sadly the John Lennon wall in the Little town is now virtually painted over by subsequent graffitti.
All in all, a fabulous 3 nights - we shall most definitely return to this wonderful city and its very friendly people.
