Prague is famous for its historic legacy and no other hotel rivals the long heritage associated with Mandarin Oriental. Nestled within a former 14th-century monastery, Mandarin Oriental is a five-star luxury hotel housed within a wonderfully preserved slice of history. The Presidential Suite is particularly luxurious and occupies its own private tower in the Baroque wing. If you miss out on this suite, don’t worry as the other rooms – which feature exposed beams, antique furniture and period windows – are just as enticing, especially those that offer views over the majestic Prague Castle.
What could be more luxurious than enjoying a hotel all to yourself? Expect zero disturbance at One Room Hotel at The Tower Park in Prague, an unusual but exciting hotel that consists of a single bedroom. This luxury cabin is tucked away inside the former Žižkov Television Tower, 230 feet (70 metres) in the sky, and is, without a doubt, the quirkiest luxury hotel in the city. The awe-inspiring tower provides unrivalled photo opportunities, as the large windows offer panoramic views that extend across the whole capital. There’s even a glass-fronted bathroom, allowing you to soak up the sights from the comfort of your very own freestanding bathtub.
The majestic Art Nouveau Palace Hotel has been demonstrating the fine art of sophistication for more than a century, albeit in an atypical manner. Located in the heart of the city, conveniently straddling the border between the New and Old Town, the stylish hotel is an architectural curiosity dating back to 1909. Inside, the suites are spacious with high ceilings and no clutter, combining traditional Art Nouveau features with modern conveniences and comforts.
The President Hotel is a stunning, luxurious place to stay that is located on the right bank of the picturesque Vltava river, between the Charles Bridge and the Convent of Saint Agnes of Bohemia in Old Prague. Tastefully designed by František Krásný, this large hotel offers 130 rooms including a highly coveted, spacious Presidential Suite. The highlight of the hotel is the recently opened wellness centre, where you can relax in a Zen spa and regenerate after a long day sightseeing, or make the most of a wide range of relaxation and beauty treatment options.
Behind its classic facade, Hotel Praga 1885 immerses lucky guests in the ambience of Prague at the turn of the 19th century. There’s a sumptuous feel to the rooms with draping fabrics and dazzling patterns, ornate furniture and fancy vintage lamps and chandeliers. Blending contemporary design with period features, this establishment offers a truly unique hotel experience, one that has impressed a whole string of famous names. Most notably, Albert Einstein enjoyed the grandeur of this very hotel. Located near the Anděl administrative centre, the hotel and its 40 rooms are often enjoyed as part of high-end business trips. It’s a great place to sample the best of what Czech cuisine has to offer, too, as there is a reputable traditional restaurant on site.
