Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre Review – it’s not hot in your room – it’s just you sir!

Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre Review – it’s not hot in your room – it’s just you sir!

The Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre is located about 3 miles away from the Prague Old Town Center.

Check-in was friendly but pretty lackadaisical. We requested […]
