With a central location rivaled only by the Four Seasons, this 70-room palace hotel stands a minute’s walk south of the Charles Bridge in Staré Město. The property’s rather unremarkable neoclassical façade gives way to two spacious courtyards surrounded by more dynamic baroque architecture. Nevertheless, accommodations at the front have both period character as well as memorable views. From the bedroom of Deluxe Suite River View lodgings on the fourth floor, the red-roofed Malá Strana neighborhood, Charles Bridge and Prague Castle can be seen. Inside, four-poster queen beds dominate the bedroom, and living rooms are so big that the area almost feels underfurnished. Traditional décor reigns in these spaces, with herringbone hardwood floors, maroon walls and classic glass chandeliers. In addition to a bar and a traditional café, the hotel contains Bellevue, an acclaimed Czech-French fusion restaurant. There is also a small spa amid the atmospheric brick vaults of its cellar.
Lowest Rate: Deluxe Room, $500; Editor’s Choice: Deluxe Suite River View, $680.
