Tucked away down a quiet side street in Prague, the new 90-room Hotel UNIC has a beautiful 19th-century exterior (thanks to Spanish architect Meritxell Cuartero) and sleek contemporary interiors, which were redone under the watchful eye of designer Daniela Baeza. The public spaces feature gray slate tiles, plush mauve carpets and low-hanging exposed lightbulbs and the guestrooms are just as modern (pale green walls and moss-green or burnt orange splashes in the furnishings and plenty of artwork from Spanish artist Quim Domene). Downstairs, the hotel restaurant has gleaming white tile walls, blond wood floors and mismatched felt chairs, and it serves up well-thought-out French and Czech dishes.
In the Area
The 12th-century Old Town Square is a 10-minute walk away and is filled with Romanesque, Baroque and Gothic architecture and the Jan Hus statue. It’s also home to the National Gallery and the Tyn Church, in which trailblazing stargazer Tycho Brahe is entombed. A 15-minute stroll across the river to Mala Strana leads to quiet, leafy corners, craftspeople’s workshops and jazz clubs. Don’t miss Prague Castle, the largest castle complex in the world or the striking Rudolfinum, which hosts the esteemed Czech Philharmonic. For a daytrip out of town, Karlstejn Castle, a 20-mile drive away is straight out of a fairy tale.
How to Get There
Visited this hotel last week with friends, the staff are so lovely and so helpful and will help wherever they can. They even booked an evening dinner cruise for us and we were picked up from the hotel, well worth it.
The hotel is in a perfect location, just a 10-15 minute stroll to the old town square. The rooms have so much storage space, hairdryer, mini fridge with all soft drinks are free and replenished everyday. Also tea/coffee making. The beds are so comfy we slept well every night.We needed more hangers and my husband needed a pillow that was not so deep and it was all waiting for us in the room when we returned in the evening. The breakfasts are bountiful, there is so much choice, fruit, yoghurt, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, cheeses, meats etc you will not go hungry. We would definitely recommend and maybe return one day. You can walk to everything so make sure you have comfy shoes. Plenty of restaurants to choose from for your evening meal. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant buy had drinks when we came back after eating.
Best location for sights and restaurants. So clean and modern - looks as if it has just been refurbished. Loved the decor in the lobby and dining room. Good choice for breakfast. Very good value! Staff were very friendly.
My stay here was great. The girls at the desk when I checked in even called a company to arrange a tour for the next day for me. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for exploring Prague. I especially liked that the drinks in the refrigerator were free.
The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because the bed was just too soft for my taste.
Very nice hotel. Great location near the Old Town. Good service. Lovely breakfast. Big room and very good shower. Free minibar and they arranged a surprise for my husband when we arrived with sparkling wine, cake and fruit.
Newer hotel in a quiet location in the centre of the Czech capital, within easy walking distance to Old Town and other historic areas. Cool vibe with tasteful decorations, we had a quiet room in the back facing a courtyard, super comfortable bed, with a free mini-bar being a nice touch. The over-the-top breakfast buffet has a varied selection with everything you could want, including machines to make as many cappuccinos your heart desires. Stayed here 3 nights on our first trip to Prague, highly recommended!
