The tour guide we had was excellent. The tour was just over an hour. It is well worth it, wether you lived through the Cold War or were born after it. You always learn something new. Highly recommend this tour.

Being underneath a hotel in a part of Prague that explodes with vibrancy and the most amazing architecture meant that it took a while to find this place. It's like they want to keep it a secret. Do not expect any signposts or anything useful...More

Quite a bit of stairs. It’s all in a bunker way below the hotel. First section you have an elevator but then I’d say at least 20 steps further down.
