When: July/August 2004
A cozy hotel in the real center of Prague, in the little island under the Karluv Most.
I stayed in this hotel with my husband and my daughter. I found it on the web and booked it by e-mail (they asked my credit card number). I chose it (I never stayed in Prague before) because it seemed to be in the very center of the city and photos of the place and of the rooms on the web seem to me very nice.
It was quite difficult to reach the hotel when we arrived because of the one-ways street and the forbidden parking area. (We went by car crossing Italy, Austria and Germany - no traffic at all although it was the end of July.) So we left the car some blocks away and went by foot. Later we discovered a parking area on the other side of the river.
The Hotel is on a very little island "Kampa" just under the Charles Bridge; one of the best areas of Prague. It is in a little square with nice old buildings very well restored. In the same square there are at least other 2 hotels and many many restaurants all around. The Golden Scissors is similar to a guest-house: there is a very little hall, no living room but a small restaurant/bar on the right. The stairs are of old wood and some steps are steep.
We stayed on the second floor (no elevator) in room no. 7. A very large room with a double bed plus a large sofabed, closet, and there were still a lot of space. There is a frigobar and Satellite TV (but Satellite did not work). The bathroom was wide with a large tub (2 people can stay inside!) and 2 washbasins.
Room was very quiet and the windows (3) look into the square. Breakfast was served downstairs in the restaurant (an old looking pub with wooden walls, like many restaurants in Prague); cheese, ham, cakes, bread (very good), butter and jam, tea or coffee and milk. The hosts are young people but helpful and kind. The price was 123 euros per night (3 persons) but they offered a 10% of discount if we have paid cash.
Finally: a good place to stay and easy to come back after a day of sightseeing in the old city or in the area of Charles Bridge and...sorry for my poor English!
