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
Spent 3 nights at this wonderful hotel, would recommend it to anyone, can't fault it.
Breakfast very very good. Art deco interiors splendid, we walked up and down the stairs to 3rd floor all the time just to enjoy the artwork.
The Hotel Paris Prague has a great interior reflecting the style of Prague. The hotel is conveniently located in centre of the city. The hotel has a very good Grand Cafe, appropriately called Cafe de Paris, which serves good coffee, breakfast and club-sandwiches. Staff is friendly, rooms are proper and clean. Parking is pricey but that is to be expected in the center of Prague.
The location of the hotel can not be beat. The service and friendliness of the staff were first rate. The hotel is more than 100 years old, but totally updated with all conveniences, but maintaining the good old days charm. Restaurants, metro, and major sights are at the doorstep. A car at this location is a nuisance, leave it at home.
My husband choose this hotel for my birthday celebration and could not be better. We arrive on april 27 and stay until april 30. The room was very pretty, the location great, the decoration details beautiful and the restaurant was excellent.
Thus was a most memorable visit. The Art Nouveau architecture of the building is unique, complementing the Municipal Building next door. The room was spacious with ample light and comfortable furnishings. The breakfast offerings were extensive and delicious. The location is ideal.
