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
Loved this hotel. A little outside the main Prague 1 area but it made it quiet and peaceful. With cheap conversion rates, it was only a 4 Euro/5 Dollar Uber ride to wherever we wanted at most times. Only downside was the WiFi was a little slow. My booking site said local taxes could be paid on site but hotel said not needed. 😁
Booked his hotel as part of a package with Secret Escapes so trusted their judgment. Hotel is about 15 minutes walk from busier areas but that was fine with us. Our executive bedroom was spacious with a decent view. Staff were very friendly and helped me to make a restaurant reservation. There is no restaurant but breakfast is taken in a basement area without side patio which is fine - breakfast was in our package but was disappointed by lack of fresh fruit ( only a fruit bowl) and have had better buffet breakfasts - the hot option looked a little tired. Only other thing I found annoying was temperamental shower - either really hot or cold. Those are my only gripes though - it wasn’t perfect but it was very good.
Went to Prague with my wife for the first time together. I have been to Prague twice for conferences but never had the time to explore Prague properly.
I have also stayed just east of the old town but never across the river to the west.
Nice modern hotel with rooms themed with either red or blue decor. We got one of the blue room. Bedroom was clean and modern with the usual amenities. WiFi etc.
Foyer was modern and beside the bar. The counter staff were very helpful and friendly and there the help
Breakfast was good and adequate, European style including a hot section of eggs and sausages.
It is in a quiet area which was nice. About 20 mins walk to the castle or old town. But if walking is not your style, there is a direct tram to the centre and it is cheap.
Definitely recommend this hotel.
We were booked into the Red & Blue Design Hotel as part of a package through an agent, and upon arrival were immediately impressed - it's a smallish but attractive-looking hotel in a modern style, in a nice quiet location close to Petřín Park on the castle side of the river. It is a short tram ride away from the centre of the city, and not far to walk should you prefer to do that.
Our room was quite spacious, with a comfortable double bed, a very nice bathroom with easy-to-use shower cubicle, all in a stylish modern design. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay, the free wi-fi was reliable, and the small bar downstairs was good when we used it. Breakfast was included, and was very nice - a good selection of all the usual continental-style options one would expect in a hotel such as this.
We've stayed in some excellent hotels when we've travelled, and this one really does compare with the best of them in terms of cleanliness, comfort and the warm welcome we received. We were very happy with our stay, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Prague. It's a real hidden gem.
Can not fault this hotel. Reasonably priced, great location (just hop on the number 9 tram into town, tram stop is a 2 minute walk from the hotel).
We had a superior room, but I wouldn’t hesitate to book a standard after staying here.
Staff were polite and helpful, no noise whatsoever, bed was big and very comfortable, breakfast was good. Good sized lift and step-less access for anyone with mobility issues.
Really recommend this hotel for a Prague stay. We hope to return soon!
