We will be staying at Hotel Art Embassy at Petrska 31 in Prague 1 over a Saturday/Sunday. Any suggestions for a nearby laundry that is available week-ends? Thank you in advance.
The simplest approach is to ask the hotel.
O utca (O Street) no.24, Budapest. Behind the opera house. Its a little far but the service is good and the prices are reasonable.
James - I can't resist - Isn't that a long tram ride from Prague 1? (I do know of a couple laundromats in Prague (around corner from Hotel Hastal, and in the mall Cerna Ruse on Na Prikope) but they are not open on weekends IIRC.) And yes, the place you cited on O Utca was great.
She's wonderful and if you get it to her by about 10 am you will get it back all neatly folded by maybe 3pm. So a 2am train out of Prague would be ideal. From Budapest's Keleti station you take the M2 metro to the Blaha Lujza ter stop where you transfer to the No.4 tram to Oktogon Stop. From the Oktogon stop you get on the M1 to the Opera stop and walk up Hajos utca to O utca and turn right. As an alternate, probably faster but less scenic is to take the M2 all the way to Deak Fernec ter where you change to the M1 to the Opera stop. Plan on taking a 5pm train back to Prague and you should get in about midnight.
Hmmm.... Sounds good . Is there time for a stop in Vienna for coffee and torte on the way back ?
Absolutely!!! In Vienna go to Sacher's so you can say you were part of history almost nearly as impressive as the New York Palace Café in Budapest.
