The Wenceslas Square Hotel is a fairly small hotel located just off Wenceslas Square in Prague, Czech Republic. Its takes less than two minutes to get to Wenceslas Square from this little hotel. Getting my bags up to my room when I first checked into the hotel was a struggle. There are a lot of stairs to climb up, even after taking the elevator up to you floor. When I first got to my room on the 5th floor I was disappointed. The room looked like very little thought was put into the design. Also, the only window in the room was a skylight which can’t offer the views I was hoping for in a Prague hotel. It was not what we were expecting at all. We soon requested a room change, and since none were available that day, we had to stay the night in that room. Although are first night was unpleasant, things quickly changed when we were given a new room for the 2nd night. We got a room on the 3rd floor, which was a huge improvement to our 5th floor room. We had a great view of the nearby museum and the room was extremely bright and airy. Other than my first nights stay at this hotel, I had a good experience at this hotel. My 2nd room was very nice and it was located in a perfect location, with the added benefit of free breakfast at the hotel. If you’re planning on staying at this hotel in the spectacular city of Prague, I’d recommend requesting a room below the 5th floor as those are the nicest rooms.

That’s all for now, Ben

7 of the Greatest Travel Tips I’ve Ever Heard

Take a picture of your luggage before leaving in case it get's lost. mrmoose.ca.png

Imagine you’re in the airport with three bags, two suitcases and one carry on, but when you boarded the plane you had four bags. Wait! You just realized you took a picture of your bags before leaving. You immediately show someone and within minutes you have the missing bag. Taking a picture of your luggage eliminates the pain of loosing some of your luggage. Avoid the pain, always take a picture of your bags before leaving.

Restaurants are extremely expensive. You wouldn’t think that a few meals would cost much money, but then you decide to get drinks. After a while you aren’t satisfied and everyone orders dessert. Restaurants make all their money by charging tons of money for food that isn’t even guaranteed to be good. Skip the restaurants, instead head to the grocery store for some food that you can eat in your room.

When travelling with two people book a window seat and an aisle seat, mrmoose.ca.png

This may seem like random advice, but actually it’s quite useful. If you book the two surrounding seats, the chances are smaller that another person will sit with you. You’ll have a better chance of getting an extra seat that you can do whatever you want with and you’ll get some extra space.

Pickpockets

This tip is pretty obvious but most people don’t use it. Pickpockets are more common than you think, and they’re experts in what they do. You’d be amazed by the genius in some of the tactics they use. The simple solution is to not bring anything with you they could steal When you’re roaming the streets of a foreign city you truly don’t need that much stuff. If you don’t need it, leave it.

Stickers.png

This tip is absolute genius. When airports transport luggage they aren’t particularly careful with how they move it, but if you put fragile stickers on your luggage the airport personnel will handle it with extreme care. Your luggage will also end up at the top of all the other luggage resulting in a shorter wait time for your bags at the end of your flight.

Be Ready.png

Airport security takes forever. Being ready before you get to security removes the annoyance. This includes making sure that all metal objects are placed in the trays and that all fluids are ready in small containers. By going through security faster you remove stress from not only yourself, but the people standing in line behind you.

Jet Lag.png

By eating meals at the same time you would in your destination, your body more easily adapts to the jet lag. It may seem hard, but is it really that bad to eat pancakes for dinner?
