The 7 Quirkiest Hotels in Prague

Jennifer Rigby | December 27, 2017

Beautiful, stately old Prague has always had its quirky side, and that has only become more apparent as the city has come into its own in the decades since the Velvet Revolution, from the various Kafka tributes dotted around town (including the massive mirror-ball style sculpture of his face in New Town) to the fact that one of its most famous monuments, the astronomical clock, includes a skeleton ringing a bell and a golden rooster. These hotels keep that tradition going. These are Prague's quirkiest hotels.


Prague Hotel Theatrino

Why it made the list

A budget choice, but still quirky; guests eat breakfast in the former theater's main hall, complete with stage.

Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa

Why it made the list

Sheer dedication to flamboyance and frills make this a fun but still luxurious choice. Check out the koi carp in the pond in the hotel's courtyard.

Aria Hotel

Why it made the list

There's a commendable commitment to the hotel's "music" theme here, from the on-site musical director to the floor tiles featuring musical notes. And who wouldn't want to stay in a room dedicated to Elvis?

Unitas Hotel

Why it made the list

"Quirky" seems a slightly flippant word for a property that was once the home of the secret police (!!!), and the site of many much-feared interrogations during the communist-era (a shooting range was attached to the convent). But nowadays Unitas is a welcoming and historic place to stay and pay tribute to Prague's dark past.

Sax Vintage Design Hotel

Why it made the list

This hotel joyfully celebrates the bright retro stylings of key decades in the 20th century (the 1950s, 60s, and 70s) and everything is original. It's a long way from some of the stuffy old beasts that used to dominate Prague's hotel scene.

Hotel Kampa Stará Zbrojnice

Why it made the list

If eating your breakfast among suits of armor and weapons is your thing, look no further. Hotel Kampa Stará Zbrojnice is a former armory and certainly makes the most of its history.

One Room Hotel at Tower Park Praha

Why it made the list

A hotel with only one room, perched atop a retro tower that has giant sculptures of space-age babies crawling up it? That fits the quirky bill as far as we're concerned, and staying at the One Room Hotel in Prague is a memorable experience. It isn't cheap though. You want to be the only person staying at a hotel? You're gonna pay for exactly that.
