With an exquisite neoclassical façade dating from the 19th century, Boscolo Prague (once the Czech Mortgage Bank) is the height of opulence: think sweeping staircases with wrought iron balustrades, soaring frescoed ceilings and original brass chandeliers. The lobby has towering marble columns, potted palms, period furnishings and plenty of ornamental touches, reminding guests that this is very much Old World Prague.
Bed and Bath
The 152 rooms are seriously romantic with single roses draped over beds, oversize tubs in the marble bathrooms, and fresh-cut flowers and candles (not that you would expect any less from a hotel conceived by four Venetian brothers). Even if romance isn’t on your agenda, all rooms seduce guests with walls dressed in silk, gilded mirrors, and drapes made from heavy damask. Some rooms are on the small side (Superior Rooms are approximately 301 square feet), but the tall headboards and high ceilings, and the color scheme of muted reds and golds make them feel much more spacious.
The public areas are just as lavish, from the dark wood–paneled late night Cigar Bar (which serves tumblers of cognac and brandy) to the two on-site restaurants. La Cucina is decorated with red leather panels and black-and-white photos of old-school Prague nightlife, and the upscale Inn Ox Lounge serves a range of cocktails and features live piano music on most nights. The spa houses an indoor swimming pool with a striking blue mosaic floor and a Turkish bath and sauna. There’s a variety of treatments on offer, from full-body massages to spiritual rejuvenation.
How to Get There
I have been fortunate enough to stay and dine in some of the world’s most prestigious hotels. The Carlo IV is without a doubt my favorite!
The hotel is simply stunning and truly breath taking. The staff, who are so kind and friendly, go above and beyond to assist you and make the stay one of a kind.
I have lost count of how many times I have stayed at this hotel but every occasion is a special one. I absolutely love this hotel and can’t recommend it enough. I have already booked my next stay and I am so excited to be returning for yet another amazing experience.
Hotel is super classy and convienient to old city Prague. A little pricy for the city, but very comfortable and good service. Marriott line adds to familiarity. Swimming pool is awesome and breakfast we great.
I stayed here in October 2019 and when I walked up the stairs into the lobby instantly recognized something about it. Certainly it's grand and opulent, but also familiar, then it hit me - this was the hotel from the Spiderman Far from Home movie.
Very neat to see the hotel you're staying at being famous enough to be in a movie.
Beyond that, wonderful (English-speaking) staff and fabulous location. The rooms are a little small, and mine had a mezzanine level to sleep in, which made it taller than it was wide. The upper sleeping area did get hot quickly, I'd recommend avoiding this type of room if you sleep hot.
Worth the stay when you're in Prague.
