There are many excellent boutique hotels based in Prague and they range from historical hotspots with stunning architecture to modern establishments with on-point interior design. Whether you’re planning a romantic holiday or are in town for sightseeing, these are the best boutique hotels in Prague.
Located on Nerudova, an ancient road leading to Prague Castle that’s traditionally known as ‘the Royal Mile’, this charming hotel is small but inviting. The Golden Wheel Boutique Hotel features 17 cosy guest rooms, all of which are equipped with everything travellers will need during their time in the Czech capital. There are many arty flourishes inside too, including a selection of sculptures created by Italian maestro Paolo Piazza. A perfect pick for sightseers who value quieter locales or couples searching for romantic getaways, the hotel lies well beyond the hustle and bustle of inner Prague, but is still within walking distance from many major sites.
This unique spot in Malá Strana is jam-packed with retro-futuristic interior items and furnishings that hark back to the heyday of lava lamps. Vintage Design Hotel Sax is one of the quirkiest boutique hotels in the city, but nonetheless has everything you’d expect (and more) from a four-star establishment. Another great candidate for sightseers, the 23-room hotel stands roughly midway between Prague Castle and Charles Bridge.
An ideal spot for lovers of 20th-century architecture, this stunning hotel is a landmark in its own right. Built at the height of Art Nouveau, its ornate, yellow-brick facade looks spectacular, to say the least. Everything inside Ventana Hotel matches perfectly with its outward appearance, too, with comfort and elegance taking centre stage. The hotel’s rooms are lavish but never appear overdone, balancing luxury with cosiness. Location-wise, the hotel stands on the eastern corner of Old Town Square, right next to the Church of Our Lady before Týn.
Set inside the top floor of a Rococo Palace from the late 18th century that runs parallel to Baroque masterpiece Church of St Nicholas, this secluded hotel has nine large rooms ranging from deluxe two-person lodgings to junior suites that are suitable for small families. Though it has been renovated to meet modern demands, the hotel still features many historical elements, including exposed ceiling beams and hard wooden floors. It is superbly located too, standing a stone’s throw away from Charles Bridge, in a peaceful neighbourhood that rarely experiences heavy footfall.
Offering services that are above and beyond what most comparably sized hotels in Prague’s Old Town offer, The Emblem is quite the charming hotel. It easily ranks among the most aesthetically appealing spots in the city centre, thanks to its keen eye for art and design. Although the hotel’s rooms aren’t huge, they are meticulously put together and often feature one-of-a-kind design items or artworks crafted by creatives based in Czechia. At once luxurious and down to earth, the hotel has many additional facilities that complement its unique approach towards hospitality, including a private smoking lounge and rooftop whirlpool tub.
Quite possibly the most picturesque hotel in the entire city, The Golden Well stands at the foot of Prague Castle, on a spot that looks southwards over Vltava River then onto Staré Mesto (Old Town). An air of exclusivity runs throughout, helped in part by the hotel’s limited number of rooms and award-winning restaurant with three panoramic terraces. There are 27 rooms available at the hotel, furnished with upscale interior items that wouldn’t look amiss inside a stately home.
Housed inside Žižkov Television Tower, this one-of-a-kind hotel offers unrivalled views across Prague and its surroundings. Due to its sky-high location, there’s really nowhere else quite like it in the city. Though you’d be forgiven for booking a spot just for the view, it is worth mentioning that the hotel looks amazing inside too, with rooms featuring an open-plan layout and furnished with king-size beds and two-person-sized bathtubs. An obvious choice for romantic getaways, reservations aren’t exactly cheap but are well worth the extra cash if you’re planning something special.
