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.
