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
My Husband and I chose this Hotel in beautiful Prague to celebrate our Anniversary. Everything was great! The Room 303 was very nice and quiet, I only saw 3 Rooms in this location. The Staff are so helpful and a special mention to Jan who was always there to assist at Breakfast and the lovely ladies on Reception who always acknowledged us when we passed them. Breakfast choice is great and we had a couple of meals in the Restaurant in the evening which were also cooked to perfection. Location is an easy walk to the Square and all that Prague has to offer. I can recommend this hotel as it is spotlessly clean, modern and nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
Central location within walking distance of major attractions
Staff very friendly and helpful
We enjoyed it to the max
I would recommend that you try the hotel restaurant,it was nothing short of a five stars restaurant
The location- great if you want something quiet near nice restaurants. Close to old town square! The breakfast was fresh and delicious. We loved the rooms and the staff. The beds were very comfortable also!
Great centrally located hotel. Within walking distance to all major attractions. Cheerful and ready to help staff. Martina and the other lady at the reception( sorry I can’t remember her name) were extremely helpful in telling the best places to shop and how to get there. Overall a wonderful experience.
If you’re looking for a great boutique hotel close enough to the main attractions in Prague but far enough away to feel that you’re not slap bang in the middle of everything, then the UNIC is a great choice.
Firstly the rooms. We stayed in a one bedroom suite and it is hard to find fault. The lights are a bit faffy and the air con is pretty loud (though easy to switch off) but these are minor gripes in an otherwise great room. Want space? Well, the one suite has more storage than I think I’ve ever seen in a hotel room. The bathroom was spacious and the bed huge and soft. And for those looking for a wide range of pillow types, the reception can provide a whole host of options.
We didn’t try the restaurant in the evening but breakfast is - as others have testified- delightful with a plethora of pastries, breads, yoghurt and fruit.
The hotel is also located near some great restaurants and cafes - please see other reviews for details
