Your tourism minister came to my town and promoting Czech Rep! I'm interested to know more if me and my wife plan go to Prague in mid-Sep 2010 and visit basically Prague city attractions. We would like to stay close to Old Town Square so walking is easy for us (young couple). Would you recommend some hotels near city center with reasonable room rates.2- 3 star would do. We plan to stay from 17-26 Sep 2010. Thanks.
