A beautiful 19th-century building shaken up with contemporary rooms and quirky artwork in historic Prague
Tucked away down a quiet side street in Prague, the new 90-room Hotel UNIC has a beautiful 19th-century exterior (thanks to Spanish architect Meritxell Cuartero) and sleek contemporary interiors, which were redone under the watchful eye of designer Daniela Baeza. The public spaces feature gray slate tiles, plush mauve carpets and low-hanging exposed lightbulbs and the guestrooms are just as modern (pale green walls and moss-green or burnt orange splashes in the furnishings and plenty of artwork from Spanish artist Quim Domene). Downstairs, the hotel restaurant has gleaming white tile walls, blond wood floors and mismatched felt chairs, and it serves up well-thought-out French and Czech dishes.
In the Area
The 12th-century Old Town Square is a 10-minute walk away and is filled with Romanesque, Baroque and Gothic architecture and the Jan Hus statue. It's also home to the National Gallery and the Tyn Church, in which trailblazing stargazer Tycho Brahe is entombed. A 15-minute stroll across the river to Mala Strana leads to quiet, leafy corners, craftspeople's workshops and jazz clubs. Don't miss Prague Castle, the largest castle complex in the world or the striking Rudolfinum, which hosts the esteemed Czech Philharmonic. For a daytrip out of town, Karlstejn Castle, a 20-mile drive away is straight out of a fairy tale.
