In Czech minimalism


A step back in time

Subtle colours, clean-cut contours, and a see-and-be-seen bar: BoHo Hotel’s contemporary vision is a bold departure from the Gothic grandeur of Prague’s fairytale Old Town nearby. The pitch-perfect design of this renovated art deco post-office extends to flashes of gold in the small spa, molecule-style chandeliers in the library and ravishing restraint in the eatery’s long marble counters, bathed in light from a beamed ceiling installation – a pristine example of clutter-free charisma and an exciting precedent for the city’s next design wave.

The hotel’s library exudes warmth beneath its glossy veneer: plum and chartreuse sofas are scattered around a fireplace and a bookcase lined with intriguing tomes covers the back wall. Decoration in rooms may be discreet, but each has a unique photographic print of a different aspect of Prague, shot by artist Jordi Llorella on a pinhole camera over 57 days (one for each room).

At the hotel

Spa and gym, sauna, library and free WiFi throughout. In rooms: flatscreen TV, kettle with a selection of teas and a minibar. The Junior Suites and Family Room have a Nespresso machine too.

Our favourite rooms

Suites are generously sized and luxuriously dressed, with a few spice tints to liven up a pared-back palette, and a double day-bed to flop onto. Both have especially eye-catching bathrooms, where a slipper bath tubs are backed by gilded panels.


The spa’s chic, black, cuboid Jacuzzi adheres to the hotel’s geometrically alluring style. There are massage jets poised above, submerged lights and an in-built bench to rest on as you’re gently bubbled in soothing 30–35 degree water.


Gilded panels add a touch of glamour to the spa’s sultry main area (open 10am–8pm); a mini sauna sits to one side of the Jacuzzi, and Swedish, aromatherapy and deep-tissue massages are held in a solo treatment room. There’s also a state-of-the-art gym with cardio equipment.

Packing tips

The winter brings photogenic frost-tipped spires and bitterly cold winds; a full set of stylish woollens is essential. The city’s opera halls and theatres swarm with soigné Czechs; pack an ensemble that goes up to the nines for a cultured night out.


The hotel’s public areas and ground-floor room 002 are wheelchair accessible.


Children are welcome. There’s a sizeable Family Room, and Superior Rooms and higher categories have a sofa beds. Restaurant staff can rustle up high chairs and heat milk; however, the hotel has little baby kit or in-house entertainment.

Best for

Juniors and teens.

Recommended rooms

The dedicated Family Room comfortably sleeps four, and Suites have a comfy day-bed on which children can snooze.


No in-house entertainment, but Prague’s puppet shows, river cruises and bedtime-story architecture will keep little ones entranced.

Swimming pool

The spa’s Jacuzzi is for grown-ups to unwind in.


Guests can borrow highchairs and the kitchen will happily heat milk and baby food.


The hotel has little in the way of baby kit, so pack any essentials if bringing a teeny tot.

Top Table

The dove-grey banquettes running along the restaurant’s wall of windows get the most light, and overlook the courtyard.

Dress Code

Boho by name, a bit sleeker by nature. Keep your hippie chic haute.

Hotel restaurant

Design devotees will be sated by the hotel's eatery, whether they’re cooing over the precisely cut marble counters or cascading light from the ceiling installation, or the creative concoctions on their plate. The menu has international picks, and a generous breakfast buffet is laid out on the bank of blonde-wood counters running along the interior wall, but guests can choose à la carte goodies too.

Hotel bar

The bar languidly stretches out over the lobby; outfitted in cool greys and blues, with a strip of slim pendant lights, it’s quite the trendsetter; and a bevy of sofas set by street-facing windows allow you to people watch in relative privacy. It’s a place to be seen too, with frequent jazz nights and a highly competent team of cocktail crafters who’ll mix up a bespoke drink on (polite) demand.

Last orders

The restaurant opens for breakfast from 7am–11am and dinner from 6pm–11pm.

Room service

Sandwiches, burgers, schnitzel and other light meals comprise the hotel’s in-room dining offering, available 7am–11pm.

Václav Havel Airport is roughly a 30-minute taxi ride from the hotel. Ryanair, Easyjet, British Airways, KLM and Air France fly direct from UK cities. From the US, Norwegian airline flies via Oslo, and flights across the Pacific arrive via Berlin or Moscow. For CZK700 one-way (for up to four guests), the hotel can arrange transfers by private car.


Prague’s main station Hlavní Nádraží is a 10-minute drive or 20-minute walk from the hotel. Deutsche Bahn runs several Intercity and Eurocity services from Cologne, Zurich and Frankfurt via Belin, and a high-speed sleeper train from Amsterdam once a day. Náměstí Republiky, a five-minute walk from the hotel, is the nearest Metro stop; a three-day ticket is CZK310.


Go on foot to admire Prague’s Bohemian splendour. If your legs tire, the city’s extensive tram and Metro system can pick up the slack. Excellent rail links make it easy to explore beyond Prague, but there’s an Avis booth at the airport if you prefer to drive to 13th-century city Ceský Krumlov, or take a day trip to Vienna (a three-hour drive).

Worth getting out of bed for

At the end of Senovážná street, next to the art nouveau Municipal House and Smetana concert hall (+420 222 002 107), is the 11th-century Powder Tower, gateway to Prague’s Old Town. This historic neighbourhood resembles Disney's most charming fairytale set pieces gathered together on a cobbled mantelpiece. The Square showcases layers of history in fanciful architecture: ice-cream-coloured, shield-emblazoned town houses; spike-turreted Tÿn Church; Jugendstil wedding-cake, St Nicholas Church; and Rococo, blush-pink Kinskÿ Palace. On the hour Orioj (the Town Hall’s 14th-century astronomical clock) plays a mechanised show with rotating apostles and an hourglass-wielding figure of Death – riveting stuff. The hotel’s equidistant from the Old and so-called New Town (actually founded in the 14th century); Wenceslas Square is a 10-minute walk along Jindřišská Street. Clubs and restaurants in this quarter tend towards the touristy, but the National Museum (+420 224 497 111) and State Opera House (+420 251 640 793) are worthy stops; and the Museum of Communism (+420 224 212 966) on Na Příkopě is notable for its location, above a McDonalds. For swoonsome views, climb up to Prague Castle on the left bank of the Vltva river, then stroll past the timbered houses along Golden Lane inside the walls. The castle looks magical from the Charles Bridge after sundown, thanks to the Rolling Stones, who paid for its lighting rig – allegedly after a drunken night with then president Vàclav Havel. The Jewish Quarter is both beautiful and heartbreaking, with a crowded cemetery dating back to the 15th century and ancient synagogues (the elder of which is strangely dubbed the Old-New Synagogue). While wandering, look for sculptures by the enfant terrible of the Czech art world, David Cernÿ: alien babies scaling the Zižkov Television Tower, Freud hanging from a building on Na Perstyne, and a pissing match in front of the Franz Kafka Museum – they’re cheeky yet curiously endearing.

Local restaurants

Prague’s cuisine has surpassed its reputation for stodgy dumplings and cabbage. Elegant tasting menus are offered at La Degustation (+420 222 311 234) and Alcron (+420 222 820 000), where diners can assemble four-to-seven courses from the day’s hot-and-cold cartes. Triton Restaurant (+420 221 081 218), close to Wenceslas Square, looks perfectly pleasant from the outside, but head downstairs and a grotto bedecked with gargoyles and bas reliefs awaits – a delightfully OTT nod to the city’s mediaeval heritage. Yugoslavian restaurant Luka Lu (+420 257 212 388) is one of Prague’s most colourful and celebrated eateries, for interiors painted like a flock of tropical birds and a meat-heavy menu. Hidden down 918 Kozi Street, behind some velvet curtains and down a staircase, is Kozička (‘little goat’ in Czech) a laid-back, local-luring kinda place, with reasonably priced steaks and excellent beers on tap (+420 224 818 308).

Local cafés

Siddharta Café's (648–649 Jakubská, +420 221 776 300) colonial-chic, neon-flecked interiors will appeal to those with an upmarket boho sensibility. Fragrant cocktails and chilli-flecked dishes resemble exotic gardens, and bespoke tea blends are served in glass vials.

Local bars

Malt and hop aficionados will find their spiritual home in Prague – the city’s been brewing since the 12th-century, giving rise to the Pilsner Urquell, Budweiser Budvar and Staropramen brands among many more. The dark, caramelly pivo in 14th-century U Flekû (11 Křemencova, +420 224 934 019) is an in-house exclusive, and evenings there are raucously good fun, with lederhosen-sporting tuba players and waiters with top-heavy trays roaming the eight timbered beer halls. If spirits and sparkling drinks are more your speed, head to Black Angel’s Bar (29 Staroměstské, +420 224 213 807) – a backlit baroque mêlée of amber vials, statuettes of art nouveau-style ingénues and elaborate candelabra. Ringleader barmen dress in dapper fin de siècle style, and the cocktail, champagne and cigar menus are extensive.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this luxury contemporary hotel in Prague’s Old Town and unpacked their bottle of absinthe and well-thumbed Kafka novel, a full account of their Old Town city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside BoHo Hotel…
‘Boho’ conjures up images of floaty attire, flower-trimmed tresses and a fresh-from-a-kibbutz glow; however, Prague’s svelte new BoHo Hotel is a more streamlined, Scandi-minimalist take on the freewheeling philosophy, with not a hint of fringe or stray Afghan-gilet hair. This early-20th-century post office has been reimagined in clean lines and smooth marble-and-wood planes. The restaurant and bar are runway ready, with catwalks of sleek counters, strips of slender lights and a subtly striking roof installation, and palettes in rooms are confined to the restful slices of the colour wheel. However, it’s far from uptight: hippies at heart can indulge discreetly in the low-key spa or curl up by the fire in the library’s velvet sofas. The Watteau-esque colours, heavily ornamented basilicas and imposing spires of Prague’s Old Town are spread out over the surrounding streets and squares, so you can time travel through the city’s layers of history and back to its gleaming future with ease.

The Guestbook

Whenever you book a stay at a Smith Hotel with us, we’ll invite you to review it when you get back. Read what other Smith members had to say in BoHo Hotel’s Guestbook below.

We loved

Great location and friendly staff. Rooms were very modern and clean. In a quiet street but within walking distance to Old Town which is a huge plus due to so much traffic all the time. There's a fantastic sneaker shop next door to the hotel where they sell a lot of limited edition items.

Don’t expect

The rooms have dark deco - including the mirrors. With poor lighting was very hard to apply make-up. Also the lack of privacy between the toilet and the shower was pretty awkward. Great idea in theory to have modern tinted glass walls but in reality made it uncomfortable when someone is using the shower whilst the other is using the toilet.

Everything about BoHo. My room, the bathroom, amenities, the breakfast, the location. Quiet street but centrally located in old town. I love the beautiful secret gardens in Prague, and there's one next to the BoHo hotel. Traveling with my 4 daughters, the BoHo staff accommodated us 5 perfectly well.

I can't think of anything. For us, it was the highlight of our vacation
