This was our second stay at the Botel racek. We stayed thre about five years ago, and when we decided we wanted to go back to Prague we had no hesitation in booking the racek. Let me say up front that if you're looking for a top class, centrally based hotel, this is not for you. However, if you don't mind being a wee bit out of the centre, it offers really good value. A twin cabin cost us 37 pounds per night bed and breakfast. A three day travel pass for around ten pounds gives you unlimited use of the excellent tram, bus and underground systems. The racek is about two hundred yards from the nearest tram stop, and about a 15 minute trip on the number 17 or number 3 gets you to the Charles bridge or wencesas square respectively. Trams are every 5 minutes during the day and every 10 minutes at night.
The racek's restaurant offered a decent selection at reasonable prices. We only ate there once, on the night of our arrival - the restaurant serves food up till ten o'clock - but this was only because we were in the city most of the day and only back at the Botel for a couple of hours rest late afternoon and again at bedtime. There is a pleasant bar, and prices are pretty similar to uk prices. You can also sit out on the terraced deck, which is very nice, and watch the river cruise boats pass. During the day the river is busy with rowers.
We both love Prague, and will certainly return. When we do, we will stay at the racek. Basic, but very good value for money.
