Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Mandarin Oriental, one of the best establishments in the city, has the advantage of being located away from the crowds of tourists but is still close to some of the must-see sights. The setting is historical and the services luxurious, true, but this haven of peace and quiet for the more fortunate has a certain austerity that feels a bit cold.

    Location 6.37 /10

    The Mandarin Oriental is located away from the throngs of tourists but is nevertheless close to the must-see sights of the capital. It is in the neighbourhood of Malá Strana, across the Vltava River from the Old Town, five minutes from Charles Bridge and 15 minutes from the Castle. It is discreetly hidden in a picturesque setting up a peaceful little paved alley, and the high walls surrounding the hotel buildings make it a luxurious retreat. The Museum of Music is nearby.

    Accommodation 9.45 /10

    There is no attempt to tone down the style in the hotel's 99 guest rooms. They come in different categories: Deluxe and Deluxe Suite, Superior, and one Presidential Suite. The decor is a combination of Czech and Eastern influences, and some rooms are adorned with photos while others with paintings. Some of them have parquet floors; the others have carpets underfoot. There is plenty of space, and the beds are large. The quality of the materials used in the furniture, light fittings, bedsheets, curtains, and so on is remarkable. The rooms have been designed to incorporate luxurious amenities while also giving the place a familiar feel, which is quite an achievement.
    The amenities are superb: a large flat-screen television, a CD/DVD player and keyboard, individual air-conditioning, etc. Wi-Fi Internet access is also available, but unfortunately the connection is charged. The furnishings include a secretary desk and a reading lamp by the window. The bathrooms are superb spaces lined with marble, and they even have a television so you can keep up to date with the news while you get ready in the morning. The rooms either overlook the street or a leafy interior courtyard. Those on the ground floor have the advantage of a terrace space in the garden, and it is just a pity that no efforts have been made to make it feel more private. Room service is available 24/7 with a reduced selection of dishes available on the nighttime menu. There is one guest room adapted for guests with reduced mobility.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    After passing through the pretty porch, we were a bit disappointed with the initial appearance of the premises. Guests are received into an austere paved courtyard where, in the interest of creating a good first impression, a bit more character would not go amiss. However, once you are in the entrance hall, the place starts to work its magic. It is a small space where the charm resides in an uncluttered, stylish decor, the light fittings on the walls, and the chandelier recess in the ceiling. A wooden door leads through into the 'Barego', a bar glittering with countless lights, that is open from 10:00am until 1:00am. It is decorated in a modern style and has won the prize for the best Martini in the whole of the Czech Republic.
    It is almost impossible not to be bowled over by the general facilities provided by the hotel. It opened in 2006 in a collection of buildings set around a cloister garden, which some of the rooms look out over. The communal areas are spacious and have walls made of stone which lead your eyes to discover the superb arched ceilings and intimate little recesses. However, the delicate decorative style gets a bit lost in these large spaces, making them feel rather austere and unwelcoming. In the basement, there is a large and well equipped gym that is open from 6:00am until 10:00pm. The spa, which is open from 10:00am until 10:30pm, must be one of the most successful in the Czech Republic. There is even a wine cellar in a room in the basement with stone walls and an arched ceiling where you can sample some great vintages around the big wooden table.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    The restaurant, Essentia, is split into a series of 5 very stylish spaces. The cuisine is a refined fusion of Czech and Asian recipes. It feels inevitable that classical music should play in the background to match the exquisite setting, which has seating for up to 75 diners. Open from 12:00pm to 2:00pm for lunch and from 6:00pm to 11:00pm for dinner, breakfast is served from 6:30am to 10:30am and is absolutely not to be missed. The pastries, fresh fruit juices, various kinds of bread, and hot dishes are a treat for the taste buds.

    To know

    The entire hotel is located in buildings dating back to the 14th century and the Museum of Music is just next door.

      If you already know Prague and don't want to stay in the town centre (Wenceslas Square), too noisy to your taste, try this hotel in Mala Strana. Its location is quite convenient for a visit to the Castle quarter on foot. If you dislike walking (because the area is a little bit sloped), trams pass just outside the hotel.

      • Location 6.97

      Located on a pretty little paved square with a peaceful little garden, the U Pava is something of a Baroque establishment where everyone plays a part in its history. The decor here is like something out of a fairy tale but with a touch of kitsch thrown in, resulting in soft, shadowy light, and a busy decor. The U Pava might not have the most comprehensive list of amenities to offer, but is a romantic destination with a lot of character. Do bear in mind, though, that since there is no lift it's not the best place for those with reduced mobility.

      The House of Red Lion is a friendly, family-run hotel located near Mala Strana, a stone's throw from the castle and St. Vitus Cathedral. Don't expect to find yourself surrounded by the latest decorative features, because the ambiance here feels more like that of a family guest house. It is well looked after, and offers decent accommodation options for families.

      The hotel is located in a picturesque cobbled alley no distance at all from some of the capital's main sites, including Charles Bridge. Hotel Leonardo has taken up residence in a 15th Century building, and has fostered its stylish and old-fashioned character. The guest rooms are spacious, and the hotel has a bar and a restaurant serving Italian specialities.

      The Certovka is on the same side of the river as the castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, and admirers of Charles Bridge will also be happy here, as it can be seen from some of the hotel windows. It enjoys a very good location, offers a modest range of amenities and its rooms, which are decorated in a classic, cosy style, are small.

      Remember the name of this hotel: you will definitely want to return, at least to dine. Because even if this hotel is not the best in its class, its dinner menu is unusual (steaks of all kinds). As for the rooms, they are pleasant if you love old style; nevertheless, the hotel is well situated.

      Located on the side of the Mala Strana, and a stone's throw from the Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, the Neruda is a pretty establishment. Here, we recommend the accommodation units that occupy the more recent building. This is a modern establishment built around a covered and furnished interior courtyard. However, one down side is that you have to climb the entire upward sloping Neruda street before you can finally set down your luggage.

      It's not only sleek good looks that make the Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague a hit - it's also the discreet service, attention to detail and central location that make it one of city's top places to stay. The very first hotel to come from the Buddha-Bar brand (following a successful global franchise) was not launched in Paris, New York or even Dubai, but Prague - where history and beauty come together to create an impossibly romantic setting. Every lovers' getaway needs the hotel to match...and we've found it in this exclusive boutique offering.

      The Ventana hotel is ideally located at the heart of the Old Town and is a charming little place providing high-quality, low-capacity accommodation. The modern and elegant decor of this uncharacteristic hotel is sure to win you over, particularly when you take into account the original facilities, which include Duplex rooms which can accommodate up to 4 people and afford beautiful views across the rooftops of the city. If we had to find fault, it would be that the minimalist decor in the guest rooms leaves them rather characterless.
