The church spires, historic architecture and stately streets of Prague are justifiably famous, but there is much more to the Czech Republic than just the capital. Brno is home to some similarly attractive buildings, grand castles and a beautiful reservoir, while Karlovy Vary is famed for restorative spa waters and a glitzy film festival. No matter where your itinerary takes you, there’ll be a top hotel to suit your style. Discover our guide to the best hotels in Prague and book your stay with Culture Trip.

Despite the name, the design of Maximus has a minimalist, Zen-like feel. Built according to Feng Shui principles, you can choose from several room types that have a distinct energy depending on the purpose of your stay (creativity, rest or business), all tastefully appointed, spacious and well-lit. Things do get more maximalist in the facilities, which span a bowling alley, a beauty salon and scooters you can take to explore the beautiful Brno Reservoir.
