Earlier in the year we visited Prague and was pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed it. Prague has always intrigued me – it looks romantic and charming yet I had always heard it was packed with hen parties and stag dos. I can happily say that we didn’t see any rowdy drunk behaviour and it was a wonderful city break.
WHERE TO STAY
We stayed at La Ballerina Hotel which is centrally located, within walking distance of most tourist attractions and yet far enough that you’re not in the centre of it all. The decor is, as you can imagine, focused on ballet, but it’s kept stylish and tasteful without being gimmicky.
As boutique hotels go, this is a hidden gem with spacious rooms, luxurious bathrooms and everything you need for a romantic weekend away. The staff really stand out for me – the concierge and breakfast staff were all helpful, welcoming and attentive.
I loved the adjoining restaurant, San Carlo, which served a plentiful breakfast and authentic Italian cuisine for lunch and dinner.
La Ballerina is the perfect five star, design hotel for romantic city breaks in Prague – I highly recommend it.
