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
Our family group of 16 just returned from a great stay at the Hotel Paris. We loved everything about this beautiful Art Nouveau hotel! The sales manager was a pleasure to work with in planning our visit, connecting us to the concierge staff who helped immeasurably with restaurant suggestions as well as organizing early morning transportation, complete with breakfast bags, for us the day we left. The dining room staff was accommodating in the morning, making allowances for teenagers who overslept at breakfast, and the dining room evening staff went out of their way to be helpful to our age-diverse group, so that each was able to order a delicious dinner, when we ate in the hotel restaurant. The location was perfect for sightseeing in Prague. As you can tell, staying in this lovely spot added greatly to our enjoyment of Prague.
This is a great Prague hotel. Architecture is beautiful Art Nouveau. Very comfortable pleasantly decorated room with good air conditioning and yet the windows opened on cool nights when you did not need AC. Excellent housekeeping service. Food in both restaurants, the Café de Paris and Sarah Bernhardt, was outstanding. And excellent location for reasonable rates. I'd stay there again in a moment.
We stayed for three nights. Breakfast had excellent choices & superb waiting staff. The room, 105 was pleasant, 2 windows in the bedroom & a large spacious bathroom. Good shower over the tub. About 6 minutes walk to the main square.
I researched extensively before choosing this hotel.
I am very pleased with my choice because:
The hotel has everywhere a stunning art nouveau interior. The restaurant and cafe are excellent. Breakfast should please the most discerning and demanding of guests.
The hotel is in a very good location and all attractions are but a short walk away. The area is nevertheless very quiet at night with no sound of stag or hen parties.
The beds are spacious and very comfortable.
I rate this hotel as interesting and outstanding.
We loved Hotel Paris. The hotel is beautiful in its art nouveau style and it is particularly charming to enjoy such a location in a city of beauty such as Prague. It was clean and beautifully maintained. Our room was spacious and lovely. The bathroom also charming with its old-fashioned crispy clean style. The one thing that might not be for all is that it had a big tub with a rather low shower head (not a proper stand up shower). The staff was helpful and competent and respond to all our queries. We also ate wonderfully at the Sarah Berndhart restaurant.
