Soon I am going to visit the CR. Useing Prague as a base I plan to visit the neighbouring countries; Poland, Austria, Hungary and Germany.
Does anyone have some good tips about travel or know of safe, clean & cheap places to stay or websites like this one.
I am interested in architecture any suggestions of good buildings to visit, starting with Praha.

The best way to travel to Vienna and Bratislava from Prague is SuperCity train, just four or five hours, almost new trains and very clean. EuroCity (or EuroNight) trains are good as well. From Prague, Dresden is close and worth to visit, in Poland Krakow is probably the most atractive city, but it is furthest of all I mentioned.

In Poland I recommend Wroclaw, quite close to Prague(not so excellent public transport connections though), and beatiful old town!

I will definitely be visiting Krakow as my grandfather was born there. I would like to visit Vienna to see seccesionist buildings and the ringstrasse.
I would also like to visit Budapest.
Do sleeper trains run from Prague?

There is sleeper train from Prague to Budapest, running after midnight from Prague, about 8:30 am in Budapest.

When you're on your way to/from Cracow, be sure to get to see Auschwitz (some 50 kilometers west IIRC) - a somewhat haunting yet very impressive experience.

That ought to be a great trip Ark1tek.
There would be so many interesting places to visit.
It would be hard to choose.
Good for you for being able to do it..
