Red and Blue Design Hotel Prague
What We Love
- The Jetsetter rate includes daily buffet breakfast
- The neighborhood location across from the city’s prettiest stretch of parkland
- A garden terrace and a glassed-in solarium provide a relaxing backdrop for breakfast
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
Overall, a good stay at the Red and Blue Design hotel. We arrived 11pm and were originally given a room opposite the lift on the 3rd floor, which the receptionist changed when I requested. Room was modern, clean with good facilities. Lovely to find a fridge and kettle in the room which were great. We were given a king size bed, which wasn’t ideal when I was travelling with my daughter, but we managed. Room cleaned and fresh towels provided daily. Room faced the road, a little noisy at night, but ok, still slept well and bed very comfy. Bathroom looked very clean but had a nasty smell which I couldn’t locate initially. When I checked the toilet brush holder after a few days, metal cylinder type, it was full of effluent water. Reported to reception, but wasn’t cleaned. I don’t think this type of toilet brush cleaner is appropriate in hotels.
Breakfast nice, good quality, choice limited but in a small hotel it was fine.
Rooms could do with some information about Prague and the wider area. We only found on the night before we left that out there was a Tesco and big shopping area a few hundred yards from the hotel, we had been getting the tram to go into town for supplies.
Loved this hotel, lovely room and even the toiletries were nice, great breakfast choice with a lovely breakfast area, staff were friendly, Margarita ( one of the reception staff ) was super helpful, great location too, saw areas we might have missed by staying here.
Upon arrival we found a spotless good sized room.With sitting area and desk for our computer. Stopped into the bar and met our Bartender . good prices AND Friendly bartender. He was a great asset to our trip has he had good recommendations for our visit . We made a stop in every night after touring Prague. Staff and Breakfast were all above par. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to others as it is a good location for public Transportation as well.
We stayed here in February 2019 for 3 nights . Easy to get to from airport. Lovely and clean , friendly staff good selection for breakfast . Just round the corner from buses, trams shops. I would definitely go back to stay again
My first time in Prague & this hotel is accessible through public transport from the airport. I searched it on google maps & followed the directions. Please note, you are transferring from bus to tram (& not metro/train). Made that mistake, good thing i caught it early on. Your tram stop is Svandovo Divadlo. One stop after all the touristy area. It was also worth looking at the actual pictures on google maps so you know what to expect (in case you get lost). I bought a (90 minutes) public transport ticket at the airport. Some bus/tram stops has the yellow ticket machine on street level, if not you have to go down to the metro stations. You validate your ticket once, the first time you get on the bus or tram. The hotel is beside the Petrin Hill, walking distance to Charles Bridge & Malastrana. Although one time i came back to the hotel around 8 pm & there's only another couple other than me walking towards the hotel. I guess because it's on the boarder of the touristy area & closer to residential, that's why? One just have to be aware of your surrounding :-).
One word about my room: WOW! It is spacious, clean, 4th floor/front of the hotel has the view of the Petrin Hill. Great information on when they flip (clean, replace sheets & towels) the room, or you can let them know when you want it done. Friendly & helpful reception: Barbora & Lemke (?).
I bought a day pass/ticket which i didn't have to, attractions are near by & walking distance. I also did a day trip to Cesky Krumlov Castle (worth it!).
