In Prague, the delightful Unitas Hotel (Bartolomejska 9, 11000 Praha 1, Czech Republic; phone 00420 224 230 533), built in 2008, is more than worth the price: €109 to €139 (near $148-$188) for a double, depending on the season.

Its rooms, air-conditioned, are incredibly spacious and have a kitchen corner with a refrigerator, microwave, dishes, silverware and a coffee pot with supplies. Included in the price is an extremely generous breakfast with omelets, pancakes, cheeses, breads, coffee cakes and other goodies.

The bathroom has a feature that all hotel baths should have: a panic button on the wall by the tub that can be reached even if you’re lying on the floor. The desk responds immediately, they told me during my stay, July 28-Aug. 1, 2010.

The hotel is located in the heart of Old Town, only a few minutes’ walk from the Charles Bridge and a short walk from the cathedral, Wenceslas Square and the clock tower.

So, while it’s not a budget hotel, what you get for your money is a huge, comfortable, attractive room, a friendly staff and a magnificent location.
