Great breakfast and fantastic room decor

Ate breakfast here regularly. There is a good selection of hot and cold dishes in the buffet to choose from, plus the option of fresh omelettes. The room itself is stunning with high ceilings and impressive tiles, a must-see in Prague.

Gorgeous 100 year old venue with hospitality and charm to match. A lovely 3 course late Saturday afternoon was simply delicious. Superb service, art nouveau styling and great location 5 mins from Old Town. When in Prague, treat yourself. A jewel!

We went there mainly because of its beautiful design. We had a light dinner (soup, salads and dessert). The prices are very reasonable taking into account that it's in a hotel. The food was good. Service was excellent and fast. I give it a 4 mainly because we didn't try any real starter or main course and we wouldn't know... More

I say breakfast we did arrive close to 12noon however they were more than happy to accomodate us for breakfast. The restaurant is just beautiful, a lovely relaxing setting with 5 star staff. The service was impeccable and the breakfast was delicious. We had 2 American Breakfast, 1 English and some extras; could not fault them. Very reasonably priced too.

Each time I go to Prague, I ask my friend to bring me to THE CAFE IMPERIAL. First of all, I fall in love with the place, typical ART DECO, with high ceiling. Check out the picture, you will understand me :-). Food : food is good and affordable. I recommend the dill soup. Service : good, friendly waiters. Ambiance... More

We stayed at the Imperial, and the breakfast buffet was great. However, our one dinner there not so much. My wife ordered the quail stuffed with fois gras. If there was any fois gras in the quail we couldn't find it. The quail was also way overcooked; totally dry I ordered the goose leg. The leg was fine, but the... More

Went in for a quick drink during my walking tour. You sit in a very grand room. I had a got chocolate to drink and it was probably the best Hot Chocolate Ive ever had. We went here cause we told James Bond Drinks here in Casino Royale, turned out not to be true. Still worth the visit.

The food is good and reasonably priced, but you really must go just for the decor. Reservations recommended. They were very accommodating and were able to find space for 4 of us for dinner but only because it was the off-season. Easy walking distance from the Hilton and Marriott. We found it a very pleasant place to eat our first... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
