Many of the 137 modern, elegant guest rooms and suites have beautiful views of the historic center of the city and the famous Municipal House. They retain much of their original furniture and rich wallpapers, but have more up-to-date bathrooms. Somewhat silly name aside, Brasserie mEating Point is a fine place to refuel with French, Czech and international fare, plus pretty views over the Republic Square from a terrace that’s open around the year. The lively, trendy Vodka Lobby Bar offers a selection of the namesake spirit from around the world. The spa is super extensive, with services ranging from high-tech facials to therapeutic vegetable body wraps and gemstone healing rituals.
In the Area
The hotel is located in the main pedestrian area and only a few minutes’ walk from Old Town Square, but also easily accessible by car. It’s near the Municipal House, which now hosts art exhibitions and musical performances in a glorious old building, and Powder Tower, a 213-foot-tall tower that was the gateway to the medieval Royal Route through Old Town. Also nearby is Wenceslas Square (actually a 750-foot-long boulevard), a vibrant historic center of Prague now filled with shops, cafes, and nightlife.
How to Get There
Overall we had a great stay at the Kings Court hotel. We stayed for 4 nights and it was very clean and the service provided by the staff cannot be faulted. Only issue we had was the ongoing noise all day due to work around the hotel but it didn't really affect us
This hotel appears very glamorous and does have some 5 star touches. But having initially been unable to run a bath on day one as the plug hole would not close fully.
Maintenance came and corrected afterctwo attempts. Then no hit water in whole hotel for an hour or two so could not shower before a 90 minute massage. Finally today water running brown when running bath....4 visits to reception 2 maintenance visits and told after 2 hours solid running of taps....Still Brown . Told to keep running taps it will clear! Totally unacceptable .
I was originally planning to travel alone and chose Kings Court (isn’t there an apostrophe missing?!) due to its proximity to the Municipal House where I had a ticket for a performance of Smetana’s Ma Vlast. However, a friend decided to join me for the two nights and we shared a twin room with every creature comfort imaginable being provided. Absolutely nothing had been overlooked in terms of guest comfort including an iron, ironing board, Nespresso machine, a welcome tray of little cakes /biscuits and a pillow menu with six or seven choices. The twin beds were a really good size and incredibly comfortable with top quality bedding. Sleep was refreshing and perfect, with no unwanted noises and I spent two nights in absolute heaven!
Breakfast was truly outstanding, both in terms of quality and choice. Service was faultless too and I loved the modern presentation of the young waiting staff. We had an enjoyable dinner in the hotel restaurant on the first night and the menu offered a good range of choices. I loved the idea of the iPad menus, again a real modern touch. There was a good atmosphere in the hotel bar and, according to my friend who enjoyed a few cocktails, prices were very reasonable for a five star hotel. Said friend also enjoyed a massage whilst I went to the concert and, again, she was more than happy with the price as well as the massage that she described as wonderful and relaxing. Neither of us used the gym; I didn’t spend all my school years avoiding them without reason!
In terms of location, we found Kings Court to be perfect, not just because it is a matter of steps away from the beautiful Municipal House, and an underground station, but because it offers easy access to most places in the city without being in the thick of things and surrounded by the noise of the Old Town.
To summarise, our stay here was flawless and there was no area of weakness. Honestly and truly, I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and really hope to return.
