After checking out of the Courtyard we decided to take the rather forlorn airport bus into town for our stay at the Hilton Prague Old Town. Despite being forlorn it was cheap and probably not an awful lot slower than taking a taxi.
Our hotel was a short walk from the main station and we descended through a small park learning pretty quickly that in Prague, public peeing is definitely a thing, as well as rotten egg drains!
Hilton Prague, Old Town
Room: King Guest Room
Check in at the Hilton was fine, the front desk agent who was in training (and who I managed to encounter each day) was able to combine our reward night with our paid night. Unfortunately as of a week and a bit prior to this trip I was no longer a Diamond guest, just a simple silver which meant my welcome amenity was a bowl of peanuts and a water bottle, at least my pet elephant would be happy.
Our room on the 6th floor was fine with the finish in the bathroom being a noticeable upgrade over our Marriott room.
Overall we enjoyed our two night stay at the Hilton, solid and unspectacular but a steal thanks to the free night voucher we used that would have otherwise gone to waste.
