“Charming traditional retreat in 16th-century Emperor's residence, set beneath the walls of Prague Castle”
Spacious, high ceilinged rooms enhance the sensation of staying in the rooftops of the city. Most have great views over the historic centre or the garden.
Wooden floors are softened with thick rugs, while satellite TV is kept in discreet wooden cabinets (there's free WiFi, too). The textiles are matched by the marble in the sparkling bathrooms, all of which have baths and showers. Don't forget to snuggle up in the complimentary gown and slippers afterwards.
There are Superior a perfectly comfortable but lack views. Deluxe and Grand Deluxe rooms overlook the garden or the city, while the Suites are the largest with a separate living area and stunning views.
Breakfast (additional cost) is a dignified affair, taken in the formal dining room accompanied by classical music. The spread includes fruit, yoghurt, cereal, cold cuts and cheese, washed down with a choice of juices and hot drinks. The black rye bread is a winner. Follow it up with grilled bacon, sausage and eggs (scrambled, fried or omelette) to prepare you for a full day in the capital.
The restaurant prepares delicious French-influenced dishes, served with a smile. The red and burnished gold theme provides an appropriately theatrical backdrop to the panoramic view.
For starters, tuck into salmon carpaccio with St Jacques mussels, sushi and ginger. Or plump for succulent snails baked with mushrooms with roasted chicory and potatoes.
Main courses include baked duck breast on red cabbage, drizzled with honey sauce and served with potato dumplings; and grilled tiger prawns on garlic butter, served with crab-filled puff pastries. For the carnivorous, there is succulent beef sirloin, while vegetarians are also well catered for.
Dinner can be taken on the terrace below the castle gardens, or in the restaurant itself. Restaurant and room service (take your pick from the restaurant menu) are available from 7am-11pm every day.
