2) You can rent boats to go on the Vlatlava river, not sure the cost. You can also rent "City Bikes" in the old town square for 300 Czech krona. (About $12) for 2 hours & every additional hour its 50 krona which is about $2 USD.

3) All Jewish attractions close at 6pm (or 4 in winter).

Hi,Thinking of doing 2 nights/3 days (not shabbos) in Prague end of Feburary.
If staying at King David, should I take it with food, or rather without food and eat at chabad etc?
How does their food compare in taste and pricing?

And would you tell me to go to king david at all, or rather another place and just use them for shul etc?

Thanks

all depending on your budget, you can stay in other 5 star hotels for 1/3 price, they welcome everyone to daven there, there is also coffee provided in the morning for all visitors.

If budget is not the issue, would you say rather to stay in king david?
And which other 5 stars would you recommend?
And how about food? Does it pay to stay in KD just for the food? I can have a deluxe room half board for approx $220 a night.
Or does it rather pay to stay elsewhere and buy food anywhere

Dorint Hotel Don Giovanni, is 5 min. by tram to king david, & also near a metro station, very good location.

if you choose to stay at king david, order dinner only if you want to be committed to be in the hotel in time of the meal, otherwise, you can eat at Chabad when ever you want.

Stayed in boscolo Prague. It's an absolutely stunning hotel!!
Highly recommended.
It's about a 15-20 min walk to the old quarter and I would recommend davening in the maharal shul and eating the meals by chabad.
Or the Intercontinental is the most convenient location 2 minute away from the old quarter.

I've never been to the king David.
The boscolo is of the nicest hotels I've ever been to.

Ic seems like a solid option. Never been there but due to proximity to the old quarter most ppl stay there for a shabbos.

Is the Boscolo nice as in exquisite, but old and smallish rooms? or is it nice and spacious?
