Sleek and serene, with a hint of Bohemian flair. Vintage photos of Prague and the dreamy verse of Czech poets grace the walls. The sheer saturation of color — from plush scarlet armchairs to the lipstick-red bar — saves the interior design from being just predictable minimalism.
Bed and Bath
The 52 guestrooms strike a balance between contemporary flair and comfort. Expect plush candy-striped carpets and firm beds with duvet and pillow menus. Some of the colorfully tiled bathrooms feature deep soaking tubs and twin sinks. Rainfall showers and heated towel racks compensate for the rather basic products.
While the mod bar exudes a business vibe (cappuccinos and laptops trump wine and conversation), the terrace and winter garden provide a cozy spot to sip a morning espresso. The breakfast buffet gets high marks for choice, if not for culinary wow factor; expect standard items such as cereals, yogurt and scrambled eggs, along with a few Czech cakes and savory dishes.
In the Area
Explore the urban oasis of Petrin Park; take the funicular up to rose gardens and the Stefanik Observatory before stopping for a beer at the Petrinske Terrace. Rich in Art Nouveau architecture, the Smichov neighborhood is a 10-minute stroll from the Charles Bridge. Stroll through riverside Kampa Park to the cobblestone Mala Strana, stopping for a dose of Central European art at the Kampa Museum. Dine on Czech classics washed down with a microbrew at Vidlicky a Noze, or French seafood dishes in the artist workshop–inspired Atelier Red & Wine, before sampling Prague’s famed theater scene (with subtitles in English) at Svandovo divadlo.
How to Get There
We took a 9 day trip to Europe starting with 3 days in Prague at the Red&Blue. It is a little outside of the busiest parts of the city, but is still an easy walk to most places and Uber is very affordable in Prague. The rooms were clean and spacious with the most comfortable beds we had our whole time in Europe. I would stay again.
This hotel was fantastic. We had a room for 3 and it was plenty big enough. Beds comfortable. Toiletries replaced daily as were towels. Breakfast had everything you could want. Bar had a happy hour with 30% off drinks and all staff spoke good English and were knowledgeable about their country. They helped when my husband took I'll. Would stay here again that's for sure.
This hotel is good, the rooms are pristine, spacious and have everything you need. Breakfast is great, plenty of choice.
Upon arrival we were told we were staying on the very bottom floor right next to the breakfast area, at first we were okay with this. Our room was great however we soon realised if we had our window open we would hear breakfast and everyone talking as they walked down and walked out. We decided to ask for another room and the staff were quite rude about it, they said it would be okay and then proceeded to talk to each other in Czech which me and my partner found a little rude as it seemed they were talking about us, one of the staff even looked at us with a very awkward face as if she felt awkward herself. They gave us a new room on the 3rd floor which we were far far happier with. The rooms are truly amazing.
We had been buying tram tickets from the hotel desk and were getting the tram into the centre most days, however the day we decided to go to the castle, we paid for tram tickets from the hotel and were not told about ‘activating it on the tram’. So we were pulled off the tram and fined £60 for not activating them, even though no one had told us to activate it, I think this is poor from the hotel as they know most of their customers are tourists and will not know the transport system and rules in Prague. We rang the hotel and asked to speak to the man who sold us the tickets and wasn’t of much help.
Overall the hotel was nice, but ruined by the staff slightly. One lady was super helpful, served us drinks in the lobby bar, helped us with check out and our transfer and overall had great customer service. I would recommend it but make sure you activate your tram ticket otherwise you will also be fined and it is not fun nor cheap!
