Any recommendations for places to stay in Warsaw and Prague
You must have been in a different Prague to the one I visited in November. The only thing going cheap there was the Sparrows.For Prague go on AirBnB and choose from a selection of cheap places, its cheap, the city is clean with what appears to be a bar/pub every couple of hundred of metres. The beer is uber cheap.
Somewhere in there Skid is a narrative desperately trying to escape. You are comedy gold and ARRSE is better for it.Prague, it's a bit like the food. I couldn't really point to an outstanding meal. Similarly the hotels, each time has been a different hotel and they've all been ok. That's about it. Clean, accessible. Most of them had a bar.
4 star up, over the years. All different
If I'm going somewhere new I usually find a Kempinski hotel and stay there. But for some reason we've never done that in Prague. I just tell the travel people which bit of Prague we want to go and they find somewhere odd, close to where we want to be and it seems to work.
It's the strangest place. The last time we were in the new town bit. Taxi dropped us off at a front door in the street.
And pointed, 'In, In'
This is a hotel? It was, huge It went up and all the way back once you got through the ordinary looking front door. (If that makes any sense)
Try the Kozell. (It's a beer). The only edible food I actually enjoyed in Prague was schnitzel and Russian salad and I'm sure it wasn't it's fault I spent a lot of the train ride to Vienna in the bog.
Warsaw, never been, doing my level best not to in the near or far future, despite an open invite for the last 20 years from one of their guitar heroes and venerated rock stars.
Sorry I forgot, small words, short sentences. Ie:Somewhere in there Skid is a narrative desperately trying to escape. You are comedy gold and ARRSE is better for it.
I did hear that its a Czech tradition to rip off ugly peopleMust have been. Beer was much the same price as home.
To get there I recommend flying to Berlin and picking up a hire car. If you drive with a "light right" and in accordance with the manufacturers instructions you should be able to go from Berlin to Warsaw in one tank.
