What We Love

- The neighborhood location across from the city’s prettiest stretch of parkland

What To Know
- It’s a 25-minute walk or a short tram ride to Staré M?sto, Prague’s old city
- Built during the Art Nouveau era, but the building’s refurbished interiors are utterly modern
- Courtyard-facing rooms feature impressive city views from the upper floors; streetside rooms face leafy Kinsky Garden
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
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
Although not right in the centre, being about a 15 minute walk over the bridge, it was close enough without the hustle & bustle. Can’t fault this place, it was clean, had everything you need, the rooms were large, well appointed & the staff were warm, welcoming & eager to please their visitors. The bar was small, but provided a good choice at a reasonable price, good enough for a pre-drink on the way to dinner, or a nightcap at the end of the evening. Breakfast was tasty & plentiful, although no restaurant for dinner, however the hotel staff were happy to recommend a couple of local eateries, which were good, as well as being very reasonable (our favourite was the Kolkovna Olympia, which served tasty local fayre, as well as a plentiful supply of local fraught beer!). In summary, although not quite the Hilton, you will not be disappointed if you stay at this hotel.
Booked to stay here on a city break this week after it had been highly recommended by family / friends who had been there.....and we are glad we did !!
Dealt with the hotel direct to book our rooms and taxi transfers and they were first class with prompt replies to both the booking process and any subsequent query we had.
Even on arrival and during our stay everyone was very friendly and the staff always had a smile and a hello for you.
We booked breakfast for our stay and even tho we couldn’t make breakfast on our last day due to our early flight, they provided us with a lovely packed breakfast we could enjoy at the airport.
The hotel and our rooms were modern, spacious and very clean and we honestly could not fault it.
It is sited about a 15 to 20 minute gentle stroll / walk from the Charles Bridge and main tourist areas etc. but has an abundance of bars and restaurants nearby and there are also good tram links to the main tourist areas about 2 mins away if you prefer. ,
When we go back to Prague we will defo be staying here again !!
Stayed here recently for a couple of night as part if a city break. This hotel is in a great location and within walking distant of a selection of great resturants and tourist attractions. This was my first visit to the city but it certainly won't be my last.
If you don't fancy walking then there are tram stops close to the hotel that will take you to the main square amongst other places. Alternatively there are a couple if hop on, hop off bus stops offering tours across the city.
The hotel is very clean with a sleek, stylish look. The rooms are big, decorated to a high standard and well looked after. It's clear the staff take a lot of pride in their work.
All rooms have tea/ coffee making facilities (which are replenished each day) and a free safe. There is also a mini bar available if you wish to use it.
The bathrooms are a decent size, my bathroom had a bath with a shower, however the shower screen wasn't great, resulting in the floor being flooded each time it was used. Howevet this was only a minor inconvenience. The bed was very comfortable. The rooms were very quiet which surprised me because my room looked out onto the main road.
All the staff, (reception, housekeeping and service staff) were very helpful frienfly and polite. As well as getting lots of information on tourist attractions to visit and places to eat, we also received a voucher for a free bottle of wine.
There is also free WiFi throughout the hotel.
A very nice, substantial breakfast is served from 07:00 to 10:00hrs, Monday to Friday and 07:30 to 10:30hrs on Saturday and Sunday. Lots if choice!
I would absolutely recommend this hotel as a great place to base yourself during your stay in Prague.
Comfortable, clean and quiet with friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Great choice for breakfast. Located just outside the main tourist areas so a quieter and calmer atmosphere. Easy to get to all areas of Prague as trams just a few minutes walk away. Local restaurants good and cheaper than in the more touristy areas. I definitely recommend.
Just returned from spending a couple of days at this hotel and it did not disappoint at all, good location, good views from our bedroom on the top floor, good variety at breakfast buffet and staff were excellent very helpful and nothing too much trouble. Would definitely stay again and recommend.
