Even though the Hotel Paris is more than 100 years old, it remains one of the most vital icons of Prague, home to the legendary Café de Paris and gourmet Restaurant Sarah Bernhardt, but has also grown more international and changed with the times, as seen in additions like Thai massage in the spa and a new outpost of the aesthetic-medicine Brandeis Clinic. Built in 1904, the hotel still retains the look of a First Republic neo-Gothic building with bold statements of Art Nouveau and original ceramic mosaics; declared a historical monument in 1984, it was returned to its original splendor after the Velvet Revolution in 1991. As writer Bohumil Hrabal put it, “Hotel Paris was so beautiful that I almost fell over. So many mirrors and so many brass banisters…and so polished that it resembled a golden palace.”
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.
How to Get There
This is is a beautiful art-deco Mucha inspired hotel. The public areas are gorgeous, every corridor is lined with interesting and thoughtful real works of art. Our room looked across to the Municipal Hall, it was elegant, high- ceilinged and very quiet.
We stayed 4 nights. Breakfast was included in the price but the final bill, given it included several bar bills from Café de Paris, dinner in the formal Sarah Bernhardt restuarant on our last night, a car to take us to a concert and airport transfer was astonishingly reasonable given the quality of hotel.
Just home from a four night stay at the Hotel Paris in Prague. It is very well located in the Old Town, just over five minutes walk from the Old Town Square and about 15 minutes walk to the Charles Bridge.
We had a great room on a corner of the building on the second floor, with views in two directions. Good size bathroom, with nice deep bath for warming up after excursions outside where it was VERY cold (bring warm clothes, coats, hats, scarf, gloves etc if visiting in the winter!). WiFi was good with an individual code for the room, separate system in the lobby.
Breakfast was included for us, and was excellent with an extensive buffet of both hot and cold items. Very attentive staff.
Reception staff were also very helpful, especially when our prebooked transfer to the airport failed to arrive (apparently had been in an accident) - they arranged for the hotel’s own driver to take us.
Overall, highly recommended..
This place manages to have maintained the art deco architectural and decorating details without being run-down. It was great fun just to walk around the building and think about who may have visited over the past 90 years. Breakfast was very good.
The hotel is rather grand whilst staying very traditional. We were shown to our room, a deluxe king size, but faces dropped when we opened the door.
Went to reception to ask to be moved to another room with a bath at least. Was accommodated but that room was even smaller. We have now paid an EXTRA €250 PER NIGHT, over and above our original booking fees, for the 3 nights we are here, to be moved to the only other available room with more space.
The original rooms were extremely dark and cramped and I feel the photos on the website are very misleading. We expected some sort of luxuriousness from a 5* hotel and from original inspection this was not the case.
The staff have been very kind and we're hoping the rest of our stay will very enjoyable.
We stay in 5* hotels across the world so our expectations for this hotel were not unrealistic.
A good friend and I stayed at the Hotel Paris Prague and it was wonderful! We booked a twin executive room and it was spacious, clean and comfortable. Be careful of getting in/out of the tub, it is a big step getting out! The front desk were always helpful and attentive. We truly enjoyed the breakfast that was included! Great variety and excellent quality. For US travellers, the coffee is super strong so ask for cream because they only have milk at the tables.
The location is excellent too! Right next to the Metro and Trams and lots of good shopping. Not a very far walk to the main square and quite enjoyable. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel.
I highly recommend having dinner at Potrefena Husa Hybernska, the rib-eye dinner was outstanding and a great price!
