I booked Residence Agnes for my partners 50th Birthday as a surprise, Prague is somewhere we have always wanted to go but never got round to it. Before arriving the hotel emailed me and asked if I wanted anything organising prior to our arrival, I asked about transfers from the airport to which I was told that they would send a car for us, at no charge and that we could sort out transfer back once we were there. I also asked if there was any 'extras' I could purchase for my partners birthday to which they said they would sort something but it would be a gift from the hotel! Needless to say the tripadvisor reviews and friendly emails had me so excited about our upcoming trip...
Upon arriving there was a car waiting at the airport, as promised. A short trip in to the city and we arrived at the hotel. It was gorgeous, clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, homely with a hint of luxury. Our cases were taken from us and we were offered complimentary drinks whilst we booked in. The lovely receptionist sat with us and went through the map giving directions to various attractions and tips on places to eat and have coffee etc. Shortly after this we went up to our room.
Our room was no.204. It was beautifully decorated with tasteful furniture, very high ceilings, gorgeous big windows. The bathroom was huge, big walk in shower and all very clean. The room was cleaned and towels changed daily and fresh flowers put in the room on two occasions during our four night stay which was a lovely touch.
The breakfast was absolutely fantastic, definitely the best I have ever had in a hotel! It was served from 0730 - 1030 daily and didn't matter what time we got up for it, there was no shortage of choice; cereals, yoghurts, fruit, salad, cold meats, cheeses, breads, toast, jams, pastries, cakes, pancakes, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, fried eggs, sausages, bacon, beans... then fruit juices, tea, fruit tea, all different types of coffee, hot chocolate and all tasted wonderful!
The hotel gave us champagne and chocolate coins on the day of my partners birthday which was a really thoughtful touch. Every time we returned to the hotel from our days exploring we were offered tea, coffee, wine, beer etc. Before we went out each day we were asked if w had any questions or needed anything, which again was really thoughtful and never pushy or over bearing.
On one morning Frank drove us to the Castle which again is just another example of how the hotel go out of their way to please their guests. The morning of our last day we checked out and our luggage was looked after for us as we went out for our last walk in the beautiful city. Upon our return we were again given drinks and our pre ordered car back to the airport arrived. We said our goodbyes and upon arriving at the airport the driver would accept no money insisting that the hotel had sorted it.
An absolutely fantastic stay, we are already looking at returning to Prague next year and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else. Residence Agnes is a gorgeous hotel and the staff are absolutely fantastic. See you all next year!
