ABOUT THE HOTEL
The hotel is a marvel of design – elegant contemporary rooms and lavish bathrooms housed in a former Monastery, complete with cloisters, with some parts of the building dating back to the 14th century.
THE SUITE EXPERIENCE
The hotel’s 20 suites are the largest in Prague, with the unique Oriental Suite located at the top of former Renaissance chapel, above the spa, and featuring distinctive curved walls meeting in a pointed arch.
Essensia restaurant presents a fusion of modern Czech cuisine with Indian and other Asian dishes. The cellar offers selections from the finest boutique vineyards of Bohemia, and is available for private functions.
The spa specialises in heat and water based treatments. Housed in a former Renaissance chapel, with the ruins of a Gothic chapel beneath its glass floor, the spa is accessible from the hotel via an underground passage.
