This art nouveau palais dominates a picturesque corner near the Prašná brána (Powder Tower) and Námĕstí Republiky. The clean and comfortable property has a warm, muted look. Rooms are decked out in elegant cream linens and dark-wood furniture for a conservative tone (save for some whimsical carpeting). Although the location is central, the rooms are a bit overpriced when compared with others in the area. The upper-floor suites boast amazing views of the Old
Town. During the communist period the hotel was used as an exclusive residence for high-ranking party members.
