The ICON Hotel & Lounge
What We Love
- The Jetsetter rate includes à la carte breakfast (served from 7 a.m. ’til 11 p.m.) and a welcome drink
- Nifty techno touches including biometric safes (opened by fingerprint), iPod docks and ultra-comfy Swedish Hästens beds
- Planet Zen spa, which offers treatments ranging from massages to body peels
- A funky palette of regal purples and golds, punctuated with paintings by up-and-coming artists
What To Know
- Best suited to younger visitors
- While perfectly located for business and shopping, it’s a 15-minute walk from the cobbled Old Town
- Service can be a touch laid-back
- WiFi is free throughout the hotel
- The well-stocked bar serves the ICON’s signature cocktails and is open until 1 a.m.
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
Its 19th-century façade may still be intact, but the ICON Hotel & Lounge has an interior that is anything but dated. Purple, gold and lime-green walls headline a steadfastly modern style that comfortably negotiates the line between edgy and cozy. The communal areas are minimal and dotted with artwork by Czech artists. There’s also an on-site gallery that plays host to temporary exhibitions.
Bed and Bath
Arranged over four stories, the 31 guestrooms are bright and stylish, with sumptuous purple accents and neutral walls and wood floors. Deluxe Rooms feel airy and spacious due to the unusually high ceilings, and the deliciously large bathrooms are stocked with Rituals toiletries and fluffy white DeWitte bath towels. Each room comes with a handmade Swedish Hästens bed.
There’s a lot crammed into the small premises here. The Zen Asian Wellness Spa is just off the lobby, and Room, a tapas restaurant and bar, serves a decently priced Mediterranean-inspired menu. But the highlight is breakfast. Not only is it available until 11 p.m. (yes, at night), but in addition to the standard buffet of cereal, bread and fruit, there’s a free à la carte menu, including eggs cooked to order, bacon, sausages and even melt-in-your-mouth home-cooked pancakes. If that doesn’t put a spring in your step, nothing will.
How to Get There
Excellent hotel in the heart of Prague. The staff really made this hotel and were so helpful and informative on the local area. On arrival we were provided with a map and the reception staff highlighted areas to visit and gave us restaurant recommendations. The room was bright, airy and modern. The bed was extremely comfy and the shower very powerful. We walked to all of the sights apart from the castle where we used the tram (reception staff helped us with this and you can buy tickets from reception). Lots of bars and hotels in the area. The hotel is very easily accessible by public transport from the airport. Shuttle bus (119) from the airport to the metro and a few stops on the metro. Only 32 koruna which is excellent value for money. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and you could order from a hot menu which was great. We had a lovely stay and would definitely return.
It’s my check-out day today and i can’t wait to write my review in This fantastic hotel !
The hotel itself in nice, well designed, with a very good position ( nearly 10/15 minutes walk from the most important landmark); Rooms are big and full of light, forniture are nice, beds and amenities are top quality ones; Hotel servicies are high standard level ( spa massage center inside; very good quality breakfast; courtesy smartphone with unlimited data traffic and international calls thai you can use during your trip in the city ) but the best part of this structure is the staff.
People bere are really Amazing ! They are all nice, polite, ready to help you out in every need you might have ! Really a great piece of staff ! I would like more hotels around the world invest so Much in staff formation.

Icon is a great hotel
I can't say enough great things about the overall experience. The rooms were fantastic, comfortable, clean and spacious, made for some creative moments to see the say the least. The service was consistent, excellent, friendly, and very customized to us, the definition of a great boutique hotel. It felt like your local hangout at times.
Let's not forget the all-day breakfast. First time I've heard of that and was absolutely perfect for us. Some of my most vibrant memories and conversations were in that restaurant eating an Omelette at 2 pm.
Lastly, and this is everything - I forgot my phone in the Uber heading back to the airport. No way i could in touch with him (long story). It was pretty much a hopeless case, i did try my luck with The Icon, to see if they can help. By way of a miracle they somehow got in touch with the driver, and within a day my phone was couriered over to me perfectly.
Big thanks to Ms. Effie and the whole team for outstanding experience. We thoroughly enjoyed it and had raised the bar for future hotel stays.
The Icon Hotel was truly Iconic...
