One of Prague’s most prestigious addresses since it was built during 1913-14, the hotel is distinctive for its geometric Art Deco-meets-Cubism exterior. Inside, a grand marble staircase dominates the lobby, which is flanked by figures inspired by Egyptian and Mediterranean cultures. Tiles and pillars are rich with floral and animal prints. The 86 rooms retain an Art Deco grandeur but are tricked out with modern niceties like satellite TV and heated bathroom floors. The hotel’s most famous feature is its restaurant, which has been among the most popular grand cafés in Prague for a century and was once frequented by Franz Kafka and composer Leos Janacek. Celebrity chef Zdenek Pohlreich runs the kitchen, which turns out traditional Czech cuisine with a modern twist.
In the Area
The hotel is located in the main pedestrian area and only a few minutes’ walk from Old Town Square. It’s near the Municipal House, which hosts art exhibitions and musical performances in a glorious old building, and Powder Tower, a 213-foot-tall tower that was the gateway to the medieval Royal Route that cuts through the Old Town. Also nearby is Wenceslas Square (actually a 750-foot-long boulevard) filled with shops, cafés and nightlife.
How to Get There
Stayed here for 4 nights from 13th February. Friendly check in, first impression was we had made a great choice, and we were not wrong. The room was spotlessly clean and beautifully designed and decorated, we loved the Art Deco style that this hotel has to offer. If is situated in a good location, only a short walk to the main town square. We added breakfast to our booking and were so pleased we did, the breakfast buffet was superb. If I was to visit Prague again I would not hesitate to book this hotel again
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had the double deluxe room #402 and it was very clean and quiet. WiFi was perfect!
The daily breakfast had a large assortment of breads, meat & cheeses , warm dishes and various fruit juices. All staff were very helpful and polite.
Thanks for making our Valentines holiday memorable!!!
See you next time soon.
Long weekend trip for 6, we stayed at the stunning Art Deco Imperial hotel, each of us having a double room for single occupancy. The room was cosy, warm and stylish, with a bathroom that was all marble and granite. Beautiful lights and all co-ordinated tables in perfect matching style. The bed is really comfortable with a choice of pillows to suit all tastes. I was so happy with my room apart from the key lock which gave me continual problems gaining entry, I had to get my key card changed several times. Even the maintenance man and the housekeeper had issues, but that was my only complaint. Would definitely stay here again on any future trips to Prague.
stayed here last weekend, the outside of the hotel looks quite stark and grey, but inside its a very nice comfortable hotel with unique decor, well maintained, comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Service was good, as was breakfast buffet. Walking distance to most areas of the city from a tourist point of view. I would stay again for sure. If you are a light sleeper, the tram outside rumbles by and may be quite noisy for some, for the short duration several times an hour. Booked via British Airways holidays. Thank you.
Booked via our local travel agents to explore Prague and as part of my wife’s celebration of her 50th birthday.
On arrival we were greeted with plenty of charm and smiles and as we were early decided on a quick drink which was given to us very kindly by the hotel.
Later in our room we discovered flowers and chocolates along with the fabulous room. Plenty of space and very comfy bed.
We ate having previously booked in the restaurant which proved so lovely that we went again during our short stay. Breakfast was lovely , self service but plenty available.
I’ve given a full score because the staff were so nice and the hotel was stunning. We did however encounter some noise from refurbishment works which were occurring during our short stay. I would have given the hotel 6 out of 5 hence my full score because we really were very very pleased and would recommend this hotel totally.
