Where to stay in Prague
The bohemian city of Prague, with its gothic skyline of twirling spires and cobbled streets is ideal for a romantic break. Its cultural hotspots include author Kafka’s house and the Mozart museum. If you're visiting this city of romance, here are some of the best hotels to stay at.
Alchymist Grand Hotel & Spa
Located between Petrin Hill and the river, this hotel is famous for its vaulted ceilings and antique décor, reminiscent of the Habsburg baroque style, with gild, crystal and velvet. Downstairs, the restaurant is a Wild West bordello, transformed by a post-modernist 1980s artist. For those who prefer a quieter setting, opt for the garden across the cobbled street where you can unwind on Turkish divans, sipping mojitos and soaking in the 16-century ambience.
Hilton Prague Old Town
One of Prague’s two Hilton hotels, this one lies along the edge of Staré Mesto. Previously known as the Renaissance Hotel Prague, it has now been reopened after a multi-million-dollar renovation. Now it features a spacious ballroom, new suites and the luxurious Zinc restaurant and cocktail bar, run by the world-famous chef Ari Munandar.
Hotel Hoffmeister & Spa
This family-run hotel is part of the group of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Its room and lobby feature pre-World War II sketches of Prague celebs, drawn by the father of the owner, Adolf Hoffmeister. It has 27 rooms and 14 suites, and its restaurant serves international cuisine influenced by local Czech specialties, and feature some of the country’s best wines. And to maintain the peace, all the windows have been soundproofed, so that despite facing the busy street out front, nothing will disturb your holiday.
Close to city centre, near Old Town Square in the Jewish quarter, is the minimalist and super trendy Hotel Josef, hidden away from the bustling crowds, its sleek, contemporary facade designed by Lisbon-based architect Eva Jiricna. It features 109 bedrooms, with signature clear-glass bathroom walls; desks that feature bold, coloured accents, and a singular breakfast-only dining room with glass frontage. It’s no wonder this hotel stands a class apart from everything else in Prague. In addition, their 10,000 sq. ft. courtyard is the single largest hotel garden in Prague's Old Town.
Hotel U Pava
Hotel U Pava in the quiet MaláStrana area has 27 stately rooms with beamed ceilings and elaborate motifs. An insider's tip - ask for suites 201, 301, 401 or 402, that bestow spectacular views of Prague Castle.
Buddha Bar Hotel
Located in the Josefov district and ideal for exploring Old Town and Parizska Street, the Buddha Bar Hotel has 39 luxurious bedrooms decorated in a pastiche of colonial Asian splendour with liberal splashes of black, red and gold lacquer.
