Hotel King's Court

U Obecniho domu 3, Prague, Praha 110 00, Czech Republic

Jennifer Rigby

Steps from the exit of the Námĕstí Republiky Metro, the sleek rooms of the King's Court straddle the line between modern design and functionality. The ostentatiously beautiful chandeliers in the lobby make it a nice place to pass the time, and the hotel's exterior fits the bill for those wanting great pictures of their stay in Prague--the neo-renaissance-style building is the former Czechoslovak chamber of commerce.

Parking at the hotel can be pricy--the Palladium shopping center, across the square, is cheaper if you have a car.

room

Rooms are outfitted with art nouveau–inspired carpeting, orange velvet chairs, and oversized leather headboards for flair. That's bolstered by handsome dark-wood cabinetry and large flat-screen televisions.

bathroom

Bathrooms are suitably lavish, with heated marble bathroom floors and rainfall showerheads.

lobby

There's some rather fancy lighting above the reception desk, in keeping with the hotel's upscale vibe, and the staff are neatly turned out in matching waistcoats.

pool

Unusually for a city-center Prague hotel, the King's Court boasts a swimming pool.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The spa and pool areas are small, and use of them involves an extra charge depending on which room you stay in.

spa

The spa has a Moroccan feel and a vast roster of treatments and packages. The new hot stone massages come particularly recommended.

gym

The hotel's health center also features a 24/7 gym room.

dining

The downstairs restaurant, mEating Point, may have a silly name, but it serves passable international cuisine and has outdoor seating facing the square. That's probably a better choice of location in good weather than the interior, which is a bit flashy.

drinking

The Vodka Lobby Bar, with its purple swirly carpets and velvet seats, feels a little bit 1990s club, but there's a good selection of vodkas and a reasonable vibe. There's an on-site casino too.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Right by the Námĕstí Republiky Metro and tram stops, which can take you across the city. Taxis and Ubers can stop just off the square, and you can walk to many of the attractions of Old Town.

Restaurants

CottoCrudo (15-minute walk) offers delectable Italian food at the Four Seasons hotel, at correspondingly high prices. Pizza Nuova (2-minute walk) is a more relaxed Italian with great pies, and V Kolkovně (9-minute walk) is a reliable option if you want to sample traditional Czech.

Bars

In the summer, one of the best spots in town for a chilled out beer with top-class views is not too far: Letna Park Beer Garden (18-minute walk). For a more upscale option, try cocktail bar L'Fleur (8-minute walk).

WHY WE LIKE IT

A swanky option with plush dining and drinking options and one of the better spas among the city center hotels. The pool may be small, but at least it has one (this is rare among Prague's hotels).

The King's Court is also well-placed for shopping until you drop on the edge of the Old Town.
