Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 6.97 /10

    The U Pava is located around 10 minutes from Charles Bridge in a peaceful corner of the city and opposite a little park full of trees. Those who are fond of Czech literature might be interested to know that the recently opened Kafka museum is also close by, whilst the castle and St. Guy Cathedral are a little further up, around 20 minutes away. Public transport links such as the tramway and the metro, meanwhile, are less than 10 minutes away.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The hotel's 26 guest rooms come in several categories: Standard, Deluxe (which account for the majority), and Suite. The decor sways between Baroque and chic Slavic touches. The antique furniture is mostly wooden, the ceilings are painted, and there is no lack of gilding. Plus, you'll find lots of kitsch bits and pieces about the place, too! The unusual floor tiling, for example, looks like it could be made out of wood! In any case, the rooms are spacious, if a little dark, as the stained glass windows do little to add to the natural light coming in. You will find yourself having to choose between decor and amenities: the beds are large but there is a charge for the Wi-Fi, and only some of the rooms have air-conditioning or a mini-bar. Most of the large bathrooms here are equipped with bathtubs.
    Our accommodation tip: those who manage to make it up the many stairs to the 4th floor will find these attic rooms come with the huge added bonus of breathtaking views of the castle and a lovely green area down below.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The hotel is housed in a large, rather impersonal looking building, but once inside you'll find the surroundings far from ordinary. The owners, the same family that owns the U Krale Karla, a little further up in the city, certainly know their stuff when it comes to antiques, in fact, they are keen collectors. This is clear from the decor, which heavily features their findings. 'Pava' actually means 'peacock', and you'll certainly find plenty of angels and other religious references, gilding, heavy fabrics, stained glass windows, and chunky wooden pieces proudly displayed here. It's not to everyone's tastes, but you certainly can't say this place lacks originality or character, especially since the surroundings are perfectly welcoming.
    The best bit about this place is the nooks and crannies tucked away beyond the reception area, where you'll find an entire corridor decorated with paintings depicting a (possibly Greek?) festival giving thanks for good food and good wine, complete with artificial bunches of grapes! The ceiling, meanwhile, consists of a huge composition of decorated and illuminated stained glass windows. There are several staircases leading up to the guest rooms so you'll need to know where you're going, particularly as the communal areas here are rather dark. There is also a bar located in the breakfast room on the ground floor.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    You might be interested to know that the dining room is actually more of a pleasant little lounge area, if you're the sort of person who appreciates plush surroundings. Breakfast is served from 7:30am to 10:30am and consists of a generous and comprehensive offering of fruit juices, hot drinks, various breads, cereals, fruit, and a few hot dishes.

    To know

    This hotel is not recommended for those with reduced mobility as there is no lift serving the upper floors and even the ground floor has a few steps.

      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.

      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 Hotel Rott is an unpretentious establishment located in the Old Town. It provides a good starting point to discover the sights of Prague, such as the astronomical clock on the wall of the former town hall or the Church of Our Lady before Týn... Don't try to find the latest decorative trends one sees in other hotels, as the style is resolutely classical, sometimes even rustic. Despite a rather arduous journey to get to the guest rooms, the hotel has never lost anyone, or so it claims...

      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.

      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.

      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.
