The number one online hotel booking site.


------>Dublin Castle
I remember a poll that was conducted in my college among students. The topic was “The most coveted place in the world”.

The result was an astounding favorite towards Rome. We could not believe it. We expected Orlando or London.

Though I did not join the college tour to Rome, I gathered plenty of information from the tour party. They visited Rome, London, Dublin and Prague. They somehow did not plan to go to the U.S.

Using my knowledge about ancient Rome, I told my friends to visit first the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre ever built in the Roman Empire that was said to have accommodated 50,000 spectators who watched the gladiatorial combat.

They have stayed in a couple of hotels in Rome that were in close proximity to the sight seeing places.

Their next stop was Prague, the sixth most visited European city. The tour party was fascinated by the magnificent architecture in Prague. The food in Prague was not liked by many but there were plenty of low budget hotels in Prague and they stayed in Hotel Denisa Prague at the City Center. The people of Prague were a lot silent and friendly.

My friends brought magnificent photos of The Church of St. Nicolas and St. Vitus Cathedral.
Ireland was their last destination and naturally they landed in Dublin. They had booked in advance at Marina House Dublin as it was located in a quiet seaside town called Dun Laoghaire. It seemed most of the hotels in Dublin were housed in old buildings.

They were all spell bound by the Dublin Castle that was originally built as a defensive fortification for the Norman city of Dublin, it later evolved into a royal residence, resided in by the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland or Viceroy of Ireland, the representative of the monarch.

Listening to their stories of joy, I shared their happiness and even now cherish the memories.

  1. Accommodation in Prague will probably be a most expensive item on your itinerary (compared to the price of almost everything else in Prague). Prague is busy all year rounds so it is best to arrange accommodation in Prague before you go. If you are traveling around Christmas, Easter and July or August it is almost necessity to book well ahead. When looking for accommodation you should check both the price, and the distance from the town center. Sometimes it is better to find hotels in Prague further from the center because, compared to other world cities, Prague is quite small and its public transport is very effective (but check different hotel offers, you may find a great deal in the center) If you are planning to stay in private accommodation it is advised to view the property before handing over any money.
