How to Get There
The MO is an excellent hotel. It's located perfectly to explore the city. You're in the middle of everything and at the same time you're in an oasis to relax after walking the crowded streets outside. The rooms are spacious, quiet and equipped with everything you need. The staff is excellent. You can expect a service that you normally only find in Asia. The breakfast is very good.
The only negative point is that the saunas are located in the dressing rooms of the gym and men and women are separated. It would have been better if the saunas were part of the spa facilities. So no 5 stars on the wellness factor.
To summarise, best hotel for a weekend trip to Prague.
Excellent service (as you’d expect from MO), perfect location in a historic building (central, yet off the tourist path), spacious and charming rooms. Great choice for a luxury stay in Prague! Well certainly be back.
I think this is my third review of this supernice hotel. I think this was my fourth stay, but I probably skipped a review once :-).
What's more to say?
Perfect location!!! Quiet neighbourhoud and only 2 minute walk from the famous Charles Bridge!
But ... what makes this hotel the best are the people. I 've said it by all the Mandarins I have stayed in before (Zurich, Paris, New York, Hongkong): their staff is super.
It started when I arrived, being checked in by this super-nice-very-handsome german guy... I mean: honestly, where do they find such good-looking staff???? He was so cool to help me with planning a route for my 10K run I planned on doing the next morning.
Super friendly gentleman!
And the breakfast: all wearing a beautiful smile and being so kind. (and I mean a genuine smile, not the fake one you see all the time...). Really, also here: friendly / good-looking / kind !
About the bar: well, I was so happy to see my favorite bartender is still there. Already a couple of years now. I know, I have a sweet spot for a hunk like him. But he is sooo kind and friendly. His eyes are the most beautiful ones you 'll ever see in Prague!
And then the cocktailmaster I hadn't seen before: that must be the coolest guy in the hotel... And I love it staff can 'be themselves' a bit more (I mean, the piercings might have been a no-go many years ago, but it's 2019...). He is so good in his job!!! Ok, I admit as well: he should become a model. Really. My god, i just wish I owned a model agency, I 'd give him a contract. But I 'm drifting of here. He makes cocktails in the best way, and loves to chat with the customers, which is an excellent quality as a bar tender.
So: in short, my five days were over too soon. If you are looking for a great place, perfect location, and the best friendliest staff in Prague: stay here!
By the way, if you planning to stay here, check out their loyalty program. It's a shame it took me so long to join, considering I've been a fan of Mandarin Oriental for so many years. So join, and enjoy the benefits!
