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
Friendly and helpful staff. Great location - quiet but only 10 minutes’ walk to main square. Good bedrooms, lots of wardrobe/cupboard storage. Very clean and modern bathroom. Buffet breakfast very good with lots of choices.
SO impressed with this hotel. From the complimentary airport pick-up to the extremely friendly and helpful reception and restaurant staff to possibly the best hotel buffet breakfast I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a few), everything was near perfect. The hotel is conveniently located in Old Town, close to restaurants and bars - and Old Town Square. The king size bed was super comfortable (loved the oversize pillows) and we appreciated the free soft drink and juice mini bar. The only minus was the lack of anywhere for two people to sit comfortably in the room. It did, however, have heaps of storage room - important for a stay of four nights such as ours.
What a truly fantastic hotel, in a convenient location. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff, with a fabulous breakfast that sets you up for the day. Lots of bars, restaurants and shops within 5 min walk. We will be back????
