Smetana Hotel

Once a royal palace, playing host to Mozart, Beethoven, and Wagner, the Smetana Hotel retains a majestic glamour, with sumptuous four-poster beds and colorful frescoes. A warm welcome, private airport transfer, luxurious guest rooms, and a refined restaurant only add to the royal experience. With a prime position overlooking the Vltava River, and within minutes from Charles Bridge, the baroque palace is the ideal start from which you explore the enchanting cobbled streets and centuries-old edifices of Prague’s Old Town.

Featuring - The 68 individually designed guestrooms and suites have direct access to the private courtyards or gorgeous view of the Vltava River. Book the exclusive Lutetia Suite decorated with furniture from the legendary hotel in Paris, Sip a glass of cognac and smoke a fine cigar at the cigar club, Feast on upscale international cuisine prepared in a live open kitchen, Try Prague's best Neapolitan pizza in Smetana Pizzeria Tradizionale, Indulge yourself in a relaxing massage, followed by a great sauna session at the Wellness Center & Gym.

With ornate décor, crystal chandeliers, and ceiling frescoes, there is much about this Baroque property that tells the story of its prestigious past. Nowadays, a French influence has elevated its elegance with a vintage bar, a suite filled with Lutetia furnishings acquired at auction, and essential-oil based massages at the Wellness Center.

Rooms & Suites - The hotel's 68 guestrooms and suites each have their own character. Some are endowed with four-poster beds and exposed wooden beams; others are decorated with busts and chaise lounges. Luxurious suites are adorned with hand-painted frescoes. Large windows look out across the River Vltava or a stone-paved courtyard, and every room comes with a minibar, coffee machine, and a special story. Deluxe suites also have a separate living area, while most of the family suites have two or three bedrooms and a spacious lounge. One of the most exquisite accommodations is the Mozart Suite with curtain-framed views of sun-drenched courtyards. Set in the original 17th-century palace (the noble Pachta family’s former residence), it is here where Mozart is said to have composed 6 German Dances for the Count. The décor includes period furniture and pieces that celebrate the prolific musician, making it a lovely place to order afternoon tea from the hotel’s 24-hour room service.

Dining - There is an air of romance at mealtimes here, with settings that include a courtyard under the stars, a retro café, and a refined restaurant. ''Café La Creme'' - You can enjoy fresh espresso or coffee, warm pastries, and home-made cakes made with love. While dining, enjoy the private view of the river, Prague Castle and Petrin Hill. ''Restaurant Smetana'' - Sip on a chilled aperitif while you watch chefs in action in the open kitchen. Dishes at this restaurant are a refined affair, based on Old Bohemian recipes with a French flair hint. Try the delicious Entrecôte or the traditional veal schnitzel. For wine lovers, the restaurant’s wine cellar is stocked with premium bottles and vintages. ''Smetana Pizzeria Tradizionale'' - Taste the authentic flavor of Neapolitan pizza. Select from a well-crafted offer of delicious Italian pizza, appetizers, or desserts.

Leisure & Activities - Work out in the privacy of the exclusive gym, where you can enjoy state-of-the-art equipment and weights. Follow your session with a relaxing massage at the Wellness Center, then head to the sauna. On the way back to your room, take note of the grand stairwells and sculptures and paintings that grace the corridors where Mozart and Wagner once meandered. Out in Old Town Prague, take a scenic stroll along the river and stop for a photograph on Charles Bridge. Make sure to take in the unique surrounding architecture with its mix of Gothic, Baroque, and Art Nouveau buildings. Wander the maze of cobbled streets around Old Town Square, and pause at any of the cafes, bars, and restaurants for an ice-cold Czech beer before traversing the bridge to Prague Castle and St Vitus Cathedral.

Location - At Smetana Hotel, the Vltava River and Charles Bridge are at your doorstep, having a lazy 5 minutes stroll to reach. The Old Town Square is within a 10-minute walk, and Prague Castle is around a 20-minute walk away. There are numerous restaurants, bars, cafes, and nightclubs in the immediate surrounding area.
