The best way for us to create the best experience for you is for us to experience it ourselves. We regularly travel to key destinations so we can check the hotels are up to our high standards. We also want to be able to offer advice on the best visits and transport methods.
This month Aly Holly and Kate packed their cases and jetted off to explore the beautiful city of Prague for a few days. They wanted to share their experience with you and offer some advice. Here is their diary.
We arrived in Prague just after lunchtime and headed straight to our most popular accommodation, The Hotel Pivovar. Easy to reach from the airport by public transport, the hotel offers a range of 2* and 3* rooms all with private facilities.
After a good look around the hotel, we then drove to our next property, the Hotel Populus. This 3* property is a good option for groups looking to stay in a quieter area outside of the city, offering rooms from single to 5 bedded.
Next, we visited another popular hotel amongst groups, Hotel Golf. A very modern property with high quality rooms ranging from single to triple rooms.
For our last visit of the day, we travelled to the Hotel Ibis Mala Strana. Located near the city centre, it is a popular choice for groups looking to be near the lively centre of Prague.
Our first evening was spent having dinner in the Main Square. We decided to try a local Italian where we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather. Prices were very reasonable and the quality of food was excellent!
After dinner we had chance to experience Prague’s well-known Black Image Theatre. Set in a dark auditorium with the use of lighting and special effects, the show lasts around 2 hours and is perfect for performing arts groups.
To start our second day in Prague, we got up early and jumped back on the metro to visit Klokanek Children’s Home, a firm favourite amongst health and social care groups.
After this, we travelled again by metro to visit our final property of the trip, Hostel Plus. Ideal for groups on a budget but still offering good facilities such as a communal area, gym and pool.
The rest of the day was spent exploring the centre of Prague visiting Prague Castle and Petrin Hill with a stop off at one of our favourite restaurants to offer groups; Hard Rock Café.
We then spent the evening on a river boat which included a buffet dinner and offered lovely views of Prague.
Our final day began with a visit via public transport to the Anti-drug centre, another popular choice for health and social care groups.
We then spent our last few hours exploring the centre and filling up on Chimney Cakes! After a lovely few days in Prague, it was time to travel back to the airport for our flight home.
