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.
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.
Juniors and teens.
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.
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.
