If you’re looking for a charming hotel with exceptional services at a nice location in Prague, keep reading.
My name is Eva, I’m the author of the Travel Challenge Book and a passionate traveler. Currently I’m based in Prague, and I will take you through the best hotel options this city has to offer. I’m a Czech citizen, but I spent the last ten years living abroad. I moved to Prague at the beginning of 2021 with my husband and we both love the city very much. Except of my work in finance, I truly enjoy planning, organizing trips, and creating travel itineraries.
When my husbands family was visiting from the USA in December 2021 I created their 10 day travel itinerary including some cool places to stay in Prague. They’ve never been in the Czech Republic before, so I wanted them to get a full experience of this beautiful city.
I enjoyed researching on hotels and top places to visit so much that I decided to put together a list of the best hotels in Prague for the high demanding travelers who don’t need to travel low budget and share it with you, because I think that you should get the best experience when you come (not only) for the first time to Czechia.
So, let’s look at the places together and I’d be happy to hear from you what you think.
Chateau Mcely set in a 5-hectare park
I’d like to start with this beautiful BONUS place and the only location on this list outside of Prague. Chateau Mcely is one of the most luxurious hotels in the Czech Republic, based only 50 minutes away from Prague, in the picturesque central Bohemian village.
This eco-chic chateau hotel offers its guests outstanding hospitality, fine dining featuring seasonal menus, a natural swimming lake with wooden sunbeds, and 24 rooms with beautiful views of the surrounding nature and the St. George Forest.
Chateau Mcely with its spa center, an outdoor whirlpool, and sauna is an oasis for relaxation, but it also features an astronomical observatory, and many activities like horse-drawn carriage ride or croquet.
This beautiful manor is a great escape from a city life and offers an outstanding opportunity to enjoy a peaceful countryside energy after a busy day in a center of Prague.
Beautiful view of Prague from the One Room Hotel
One Room Hotel is a one time experience! This is really only one room set in a TV tower at one of the best locations, offering gorgeous views of Prague.
If you want to wake up in the 70 meters high with the sunrise over the city, it’s a perfect place to stay. The room is tastefully and elegantly equipped and a glassed-in bathroom is just a dream.
There are many additional services you can book to treat yourself. You can have your butler, or a private limousine that will take you wherever you wish. You can ask for special decoration of the room or even a special service.
If you plan your stay for a special occasion or if you even want to make a proposal, you can make it unforgettable. You can get a person climbing the tower in front of your room window with a message you wish. This is how it looks like!
And last but not least, the One Room Hotel is linked to one of the best gastronomic restaurants Oblaca that was many times rewarded with three Golden Lions award which makes the restaurant one of the best in the Czech Republic.
