Perched on a busy corner in the city center, this pistachio-green art nouveau building trumpets its Victorian origins. Inside, rooms add to the ice-cream parlor color scheme with icy white marble bathrooms, pale yellow walls, and red velvet beds with canopies. The hotel restaurant is similarly lush: think saddle of venison and well-constructed cream sauces. A block from Wenceslas Square and adjacent to the shopping bonanza of Na Příkopě, the advantage here is location,
which puts it ahead of other hotels in its class.
