    hi all....
    big tenth anniversary coming up in october so providing i can stash the kids away somewhere i was looking at a 3 night midweek city break......
    had thought about Rome,Prague or Copenhagen (must admit i've always fancied a trip to Copenhagen)....
    was wondering if anyone had some good tips or recommendations..especially hotels in centralish locations?

    Apparently not!
    Never been to any of your choices. My partner has benn to Prague and loved it. I think Copenhagen may be very expensive - but maybe cost is not a concern?

    Well what do you want to do?

    Have lots of historical monuments to explore? (Rome)
    Or clubing? (Prague, or Copenhagen)

    Prague and Copenhagen both run the risk of possibly being a bit chilly in October. Rome should still be OK.

    There really is a lot to do in Rome if you think you would like Roman history, and of course the vatican and st Peters, which are really quite awesome. Food's not bad either, if you like Italian :)

    Rome is probably the most romantic of the 3 too.

    For hotels, the best way to find something you need is to use Tripadvisor for reviews, and then check the rates for something in your budget using tripadvisor or expedia (the 2 normally reference each other - the ratings in expedia come from tripadvisor I believe)

    I have stayed here a couple of times http://rome-hotels.tripadvisor.com/...Reviews-Rome_Cavalieri_Hilton-Rome_Lazio.html but er, not exactly cheap...

    must admit i thought rome might be a bit more anniversary friendly.....thought it was reasonable cheap to eat and drink out?
    ....not really interested in the clubbing side of things...........
    'do want woofers and tweeters with that grandad'
    the sight seeing and eating out and the odd cold one would be just the job.

    We went to Seville last year and it was absolutely stunning...nice weather...sat outside in Feb...incredible city...cathederal, palace, gardens, flamenco dancing, eating outside etc...incredible seeing trees with oranges growning on them in normal streets :)

    Highly recommended...other than that I'd go for Barca or NY (get some good deals with BA at the moment)

    We went to Prague last November, really enjoyed it. I think the Hotel was called The City Inn, Nothing flashy but clean and right in the heart of the city..

    I'd go with Rome, was there in June and thought it was fantastic, Prague was also pretty cool but when i went there was a lot of stag groups larking about which is a laugh an all but can grate when out with the missus, if your thinking Rome i can recommend a fantastic classy restaurant thats on the top of a 5* hotel that has a beautiful view over rome and its a moments walk from the trevi fountain.

    Never been to Prague or Copenhagen, but we did go to Rome last year and absolutely loved it.

    Another vote for Rome. Was there in JUne, fantastic place.
    I 've also done Malta a 'few' times which is a place you will either love or hate.

    The hotel is expensive, the restaurant wasn't that expensive (depending on what you choose to eat or drink), but the food, quality of service and setting were more than worth it, its called the Hotel Minerva, its right beside the Pantheon this is a link to our table were we sat

    http://delaminerve.hotelinroma.com/rome-hotels/main.htm?source=googleh

    as you can see its pretty fecking cool and the missus will love ye! the service was out of this world, they treat you like a rock star and the food was superb, plus after a bottle of wine and a few beers you can take a short walk up the road and sit down and enjoy another couple of beers at the trevi fountain... great way to spend a romantic night. The next time i'm in Rome im gonna go stay there for a few days, it'd be worth it.
