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

- A funky palette of regal purples and golds, punctuated with paintings by up-and-coming artists

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
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights.
I have no words but perfect!
Perfect location, 2 min walk to vaclav blvd. 10 min walk to old town.
Very nice and helpful staff, and really nice large room.
The breakfest was nice too.
I recommand anyone that travel to prague to stay at this hotel.
Check-in took far too long as the guests in front of us kept the receptionist tied up with questions. But she was efficient when she got to us and very informative. Our room was well appointed, clean and tidy. But it was very hot all stay, I don’t think the AC was working properly. Lots of hot water and big fluffy towels. Wi-fi was strong. A guest hand-held mobile in every room is a nice touch. As is the biometric safe. And the concealed mini bar, if you find it!
Breakfast is a quality affair, the cold buffet has lots of nice healthy choices and you can have your eggs any which-way. In the evening we dropped in for some tapas. These dishes are cooked in a very authentic Spanish way and taste great, at a very reasonable price.
ALL the team are friendly and want you to have an enjoyable stay. They are very knowledgeable about the city and have public transport tickets at reception.
This is a quality hotel, in the city centre, with well trained and dedicated staff. It’s good value for your trip to Prague.
I was really amazed by how great the service is!
We got lost a bit finding this hotel as it was our first time in Europe then but was so relieved soon as we came.
The staff at reception greeted us warmly, explained the hotel and where we can go around town. Literally draw in the map and suggesting us good places to visit and restaurants to eat.
There's a laundry close to the hotel so for family travelling or backpackers, this is perfect!
BEST part is, they provide free smart phone with unlimited data and calls for local and international. This is really an added value for tourists.
Breakfast? Oh, it runs from 7 am to 11 pm! Why? To cater to their late sleeper guests. Of all the places we've visited around the world, this is the only hotel that offers this. It surely shows how they value and look after their guests.
Breakfasts are also 'cook to order' so you can ensure fresh egg and crunchy bacon in the morning! :)
The room is spacious, the TV has Netflix! and the Toiletries are from RITUALS!
Seriously, this place is a MUST visit when in Prague.
Oh...restaurants are so close to and some groceries.
Me and my wife had a pleasure to stay in this marvelous hotel. The hotel itself is pretty small yet amazing, the room was quite big and comfortable. The hotel has a modern look, minimalist and stylish. The room as well as the entire hotel smells amazing, and you can feel that the stuff takes care of their guests. Room was clean, and housekeeping worked properly every day. We had a room with breakfast, and I must say that they have the best option of ordering breakfast any time you want, not limiting it to standard 11:00 in the morning. Breakfast suggested various options including several types of eggs, french toasts, pancakes and etc. Also there is a spa inside of the hotel, where you could have a discount as the guests of Icon. The location is perfect - 5 minutes max walk to Wenceslas Square, 10 minutes to the street Na Prikope, and 15 minutes to Staromestska Square.
But most important I want to mention the staff of the hotel, as they were amazing, unbelievably helpful and nice throughout the entire stay in Icon hotel. Receptionists were so nice to walk us to our room, and suggest us a breakfast box at 4 A.M in the morning, when we were leaving Prague. We’ve stayed in a lot of different hotels in different European cities, but we’ve never met such a service as we had in this hotel. I would highly recommend it, as we absolutely enjoyed our stay there!
