Why we choose Mandarin Oriental Prague

With roots dating from the 14th century, the hotel offers a story around every corner

  • Reserve the Wine Cellar for tastings or private dining
  • BAREGO has repeatedly been named Best Hotel Bar in the Czech Republic
  • Wellness activities include private or group yoga classes

Chain hotels, even high-end ones like the Mandarin Oriental properties,
don’t usually inspire words like “intimate.” But this hotel breaks the mold in
a good way. The 99 individually designed rooms are well-appointed, of course,
but also atmospheric—a great complement to the similarly atmospheric city of
Prague. Bottom line: This is a primo luxury hotel that’s also a preserved
piece of history.

What you need to know about the hotel

A charming, tranquil hotel housed in a former monastery

  • You’ll find the spa in a former Renaissance chapel
  • Moser Suites offer exquisite crystal décor and accessories by Moser, the Czech Republic’s premier crystal manufacturer
  • Dinner and a show: The restaurant, Essensia, is spread across a series of five interconnected rooms with vaulted Renaissance ceilings

The past is very much present at the Mandarin Oriental Prague. Original details from its Renaissance roots—like vaulted ceilings and parquet floors—mingle with sumptuous Asian-inspired furniture and the latest technology. Somehow, it avoids a schizophrenic feel and instead radiates charm. In terms of the views, which include cobbled streets, the hotel’s private garden and Prague Castle—there isn’t a bad one to be had, though we recommend a suite in the Baroque Wing.

The facilities here are first rate, from the wholly unique spa specializing in holistic treatments to the inspired restaurant and its seasonal Asian-Czech menus.

Where is it and what's nearby

A picturesque location on the cobbled streets of Prague’s Mala Strana distinct

  • A hotel guide will customize your tour—perhaps the Baroque Library, Strahov Monastery and then the Monastery Brewery for a signature beer?
  • The iconic Prague Castle, the largest castle complex in the world, includes extraordinary architecture and the Old Royal Palace
  • The city’s edgier arts scene is in Holešovice, where old factory buildings are being converted into galleries and studios

The historic Mala Strana district on the left bank of the Vltava River is home to the Mandarin Oriental, which combines pastoral elements like a monastery garden with easy access to major attractions such as the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle.

You’ll find that walking the streets of Prague is like stepping into a film, which may explain why it’s served as the backdrop for so many Hollywood movies. Its gothic cathedrals and jaw-dropping palaces are a visual feast that belies the city’s bohemian vibe and modern shopping, dining and arts scene. New or old, whatever moves you can probably be found in Prague.

How to enjoy Czech Republic

The Czech Republic’s capital, Prague, is also the capital of Bohemia. This is hardly surprising in a nation whose former president was first known for his poetry and where the famed 600-year-old Astronomical Clock chimes the hour with a skeleton

  • Enjoy the waters of the naturally hot springs at Karlovy Vary, less than two hours’ drive from Prague in the Imperial Mountains
  • Visit Plzen in the west of the Czech Republic to take a tour of the Pilsner Urquell Brewery, home of the world’s first lager
  • Prague’s Jewish quarter, Josefov, dates back to the 13th Century. Key monuments include the Jewish Town Hall and the Old Jewish Cemetery

Prague hosts some deliciously unique sights, rewarding visitors with the knowledge that there is literally nowhere else quite like it in the world. The first of these is the Charles Bridge. Built in 1357, the Bridge is lined by 30 statues of Saints and spans the green Vltava River offering fantastic views of the multiple-spire Old Town and world’s largest castle. A must see is the Old Town Square. Lined by grandiose Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture, it is a perfect spot for coffee and a pastry.

Visit the museums dedicated to the works of Kafka, Havel and Dvorák to learn more about the nation’s most famous sons. For a proper Dvorák pilgrimage, head out of town to nearby Nelahozeves to visit the town of his birth or see the calendar of concerts at the Rudolfinum Theatre or Prague Estates Theatre. The latter is worth a visit in its own right, not least because it is the venue where Mozart conducted the world premiere of Don Giovanni in 1787.
