Modern, lively antidote to the Czech capital’s abundant neo-Renaissance and Art Nouveau historic hotels

The Lowdown

In Prague’s medieval quarter near the Old Town Square, this international four-star hotel designed by Eva Jiricna thumbs its nose at the traditionalism that defines most of the city’s top hotels. Think cheeky fuchsia and orange throw pillows and sashes, glass and chrome galore, and Apple computers at the check-in desk. It comprises two new buildings containing six and eight floors that are linked by an open courtyard and glassed-in link at ground level. Their staggered plan and ingenious design make the most of a quirky site, letting great light into most of the 109 (soundproofed) glass-walled rooms. Staff is friendly, but this isn’t a full-service hotel: There’s no restaurant for lunch or dinner (though room service is available), and Nespresso coffeemakers are available in only a handful of top rooms. No problem: It’s not a hotel to hole up in but a base for exploring one of Europe’s most fascinating cities.

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 now 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 through Old Town. Also nearby is Wenceslas Square (actually a 750-foot-long boulevard), a vibrant historic center of Prague now filled with shops, cafes, and nightlife.
