Arriving in the evening after 15 hours of travel, the hotel arranged for a private car to pick us up which eliminated the stress of getting into the Old town from the Airport. He took us right up to the door and carried our bags...

The hotel is in a beautifully preserved old building which has kept the spirit of the old but has all the advantages of the new (except for an elevator, which will be installed soon).

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
