Residence Karolina and Tripadvisor

For last several months we have recieved very good results with Residence Karolina on Tripadvisor. It is due to perfect reviews which we have recieved from our clients. Recently we moved Residence Karolina from the Specialty Lodging category on Tripadvisor to Hotel category. Maybe you know that Karolina was on the first place within the category of Specialty Lodging, nevertheless, within the Hotels Karolina has been placed on the sixth place.

With regards to our competiotion within the Hotel category sixth place is wonderful place for listings. Note that first four listings of our competition have been placed in the top ten on the world within favorite hotels category. Therefore we can claim that our competition on Tripadvisor is really high and the sixth place is very nice results.

Furthermore, if you compare the price level of other hotels on the first Tripadvisor page you will find that Residence Karolina has one of the cheapest property and you can hardly find better price/quality ratio within Prague´s listings.

In other words Residence Karolina is offering very comfortable and top quality Prague apartments. The main partner of Residence Karolina is Prague City Apartments (PCA). Reason why Residence Karolina has been ranked very well on Tripadvisor is that PCA offers first class concierge servis and very trendy accommodation in Prague Old Town.

Prague City Apartments and E-travel went to countryside

Finally I have recieved some photos from the last teambuidling of PCA and E-travel in Znojmo.

The story is following: Mr. Tomasek has private vine collection in Znovin (vine company in Znojmo) and he had forgotten to collect stored bottles since 2005. Therefore, it was decided to left Prague to help Mr. Tomasek with reducing his reserves.

We left on Fridays morning and four cars of thirsty people were heading towards Znojmo, nevertheless, three of these cars were ahead and the last car of Mr. Tomasek had a delay. Znojmo is 200 km far from Prague and even if the first car had an advance of approximetely 80 km, Mr. Tomasek managed to jump over this car before we reach our destination. No comment to his performance on the roads. Finally we reached Znojmo.

The trip was planned over the whole weekend. After our arrival in Znojmo we had to catch special bus which took us into six different wine celler where we had to taste over 25 samples of Znovin´s wine. First two bus stops were under control; however, from the third stops some of us gained certein level of alcohol in blood and it remained till the Sunday´s evening. (see the photos below). After our last stop we went to pizza and later on we went to after party in Znovin´s main cellar. Later on we moved into bar in the centre of Znojmo to celebrate the end of the first day.

Saturday´s moring we started with champagne and orange juicy. Then we followed Karel B. to begin our teambuilding game. We were divided into three groups; nevertheless, one group was disqualified because of using taxi instead of their feet :(. The goal of the game was to reach another Znovin´s cellar where Mr. Tomasek has private collection of moravian wine. Before we reached this cellar we stopped in pub called "U Fandy" where other competitions were held. In one competition of beer relay two competitors didnt succeed in holding the beer in their stomachs (guess what could happen). The rest of the day we spent in cellar drinking and tasting wine......

The Sunday was the day of returning and the day of searching for memories.

Finally, let me thank you for organization these event and together we are looking for next such teambuilding action.
