I once said- if i had to choose any hotel in Prague where i`d like to spend my time, it would be this one. I`m a kind of secession-freak, in love with everything old which has a story, and this amazing place has fulfilled my dream! Building erected sometime in late 19th century, richly decorated with flowers, complicated facades and inscriptions- and that`s just the exterior, once you`ve entered, you`ll notice the breath of imperial history. Full of decorative elements made from steel, glass and wood, not to mention the cafee and its mirror room! this place is a must for any non-spoiled antique lover.
Rooms are spacious either with or without bathroom- you choose- furnished with wooden wardrobe, bed and tables. My room was on the 3rd floor with an amazing view on Venceslas square, heart of the city and a little cafe Tramway11, located just a few steps from reception. Everything was clean and tidy; but yep, bathroom was maybe the only not so good looking place (the bathtub has seen better times), but in general, whole place was so cool that it didn`t matter. I knew what i`d chosen and expected worse. It`s a great value for money. BTW you even get a discount when paying cash, so go for it.
Of course, it`s not for everyone. You can choose much better hotel almost everywhere in the city, but you know, all those high-class 3*+ hotels look everywhere the same. Here you`ve got a chance to meet an era gone hundred years ago!
PS. may i return to prague someday, i`d go here for sure. And i want to say a big thanks to the receptionist, don`t know if she was owner`s fiancee or just an employee, but it felt great to speak with such a kind person.
I strongly recommend!
