“what a city, what a hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2007

Just back from a first time 3 day trip to Prague. What a wonderful city - so much to see, good food, safe and a really good vibe. We expected great things of the Mandarin Oriental but it was exceptional. Collected from the the airport in a Mercedes Limo which was a lovely start to the weekend. The hotel quirky in it's design being formed from a monestry and sits in a quadrangle around the garden. The location is fantastic being in a very quiet area, 5 mins from Charles Bridge, Kampa Park, Petrin hill and the tram stop to the Castle, Cathedral etc.. Our superior room was fantastic overlooking the garden and styled in a contemporary fashion with lots of limestone, leather and silk. Great toiletries from Aromatherapy Associates to enjoy a soak after the all the walking! You bypass reception and checkin in your bedroom. The tea has to deserve a special mention as I am still carving the fantastic brews!

Staff are unpretentious and nothing is too much trouble.

Business Centre was excellent and free.

We never ate in the hotel except for breakfast which was excellent but can recommend the Kampa restaurants and V Zatiki

We will definately be going back as we both thought the place was magical and so romantic.

Myself and my partner have just come bck from a 2 night weekend break from this hotel - we decieded to go to prague to celebrate my birthday and wow what a city - but even more so what a hotel. I work in the travel industry and specialise in Luxury products and so I have seen many 5 to 6 star properties in Europe and in Asia . But this hotel really excelled in their service with each and every member of their staff. The room type we were given was a Deluxe room - This is the 4th room catergory up - Every single detail had been carefully thought out and it was hard to leave the room but we had to - to see the beautiful city. I think it is worth researching which room catergory you think would suit you best as although all the rooms are very similar in decor its the unique features that come in some that make it that bit more special to you. its a great location with a very understated yet elegant enterance. Right on your doorstep is the beautiful Charles Bridge which connects to the old town and to Mala Strana - Its was a really romantic and special experience that will be a memory that stays with me a lifetime.

Hugely impressed with the hotel, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Excellent, quiet location. Spacious, well equipped rooms, public spaces elegant with no degree of stuffiness. Food was very good. Defining feature, however, was the staff, who were truly outstanding. Not just well trained, but showed real initiative, and seemed genuinely anxious to please. Trip was organised around a celebration for my parents, who were thrilled by the whole experience.

  • Liked — Central, quiet location. Excellent staff.

Just returned from 3 nights in this fabulous hotel. Our room was huge, with an enormous bed and pillows to die for - like sleeping on a cloud!! THE best hotel I've stayed in without exception, with all the little touches that make it special - fresh thai orchids in the bathroom, generously sized Aromatherapy toiletries, massive bath and separate walk-in shower.
The staff were all friendly and informative, no hint of stuffiness which you may experience in other hotels of this calibre.
We ate the restaurant - an asian/fusion menu, and found it to be good - slightly expensive however we were presented with a 2 for 1 meals offer on arrival which made it even more palatable!
The conversion from a monastery has been sympathetically done, you can view some of the archaeological discoveries they made during the renovation in the tunnel linking the main building to the spa, and also see some of the preserved remains under a glass floor in the spa itself. Two of our party had treatments and raved about them.
The hotel is in a great location, close to Charles Bridge, with a tram stop round the corner to take you up to the Castle. Everywhere is really within walking distance - if you can manage to tear yourself out of bed!

This luxury hotel opened at the end of 2006 in a converted monastery. We had a premier room and found the accomodation of a luxurious standard. All the staff were exceptional. I used the spa for a wonderful swedish massage - not cheap but for a 1 hour 20 minute session it was worth it. Located close to Charles Bridge and tourist spots very central but still quiet and secluded. The quality of food in the restaurant was great but lacked the local authenticity of the wonderful local restaurant right outside the hotel. Would certainly recommend this hotel if you are looking for luxury in Prague.

Quick review. I organised a sales meeting at this hotel in Feb 2007. I couldn't fault the hotel, it is bright, clean and all furnishings are new. The service from the staff was perfect and they are all so friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for business or pleasure. It is a top quality hotel, the only reason for the 4 rating is because breakfast is waiter service and as such can be a little slow.

We booked a Sesonal Choices 3 for 2 nights opening offer and we were more than satisfied with what the hotel delivered: a spacious Deluxe room with a very pleasing colour scheme and expensive fabrics, a great bathroom with separate shower and deep tub and a delicious A la Carte breakfast each morning in the hotel's stylish "Essensia" restaurant. Furthermore, we were greeted with chilled white wine, fruit and chocolate.

Every staff member treated us with the utmost courtesy - from Zuzana (who checked us in in our room after having given us a tour of the property) to the helpful bellmen.

The tour of the hotel is recommended, because the hotel is located in a former monastery and its room layout follows the historical structure and can be a little confusing.

We did not use the spa and the fitness centre, but what we saw was very attracting.

Last but not least: one other big plus is the hotel's location. On the Mala Strana side of Prague, in the so called Little Quarter, a quiet, distinguished area surrounded by embassies, ministeries and seducing restaurants. Close enough to Old Town's sights, but far enough from its annoying drunken hords.
