Kosher list

1) always keep a few krona change in your pockets for bathroom breaks. It costs about $0.15-$0.25 USD (in Krona) per visit no one will let you in for free. (besided the chabad restaurants).

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).

Has anyone eaten in both King Solomon and Dinitz (or either) for Shabbos meals? Which would you recommend?

King Solomon is Treif.

Any hotel recommendations? Points not necessary. Under $200 a night ideally.
And are chabbad restaurants the only reputable kosher ones?
