These Are the Best Hotels in Prague for Music Lovers

Jennifer Rigby | December 20, 2017

Prague's musical pedigree is not to be underestimated. Mozart premiered his opera Don Giovanni here, and the city is also the birthplace of the composers Antoní Dvořák, Leoš Janáček, and Bedřich Smetana. And it's not all about classical music: When Václav Havel became president of the newly liberated Czechoslovakia in 1989, one of his first acts was to invite Frank Zappa to play in Prague. Nowadays, jazz notes, classical music, and rock tunes float across the city's cobbled streets, and music lovers flock to the Golden City throughout the year--but particularly during the huge Prague Spring festival. These City Centre hotels are where you'll want to be if you've come to Prague for the music.


Alcron Hotel Prague

Why it made the list

The swanky art-deco Radisson is one of the closest hotels to Prague's State Opera, located just behind Wenceslas Square. For those with more modern tastes, it's also on the same street as the Lucerna Music Bar, which hosts some of the best rock and pop gigs in town.

Ventana Hotel Prague

Why it made the list

Leap forward a few centuries in your musical tastes, to the jazz age, and this hotel makes the list for music-lovers based on its smashing location: steps from Ungelt Jazz and Blues Club, and only ten minutes from the famous Reduta Jazz Club too (where Bill Clinton once jammed on his saxophone).

Grand Hotel Bohemia

Why it made the list

You can go the whole musical hog here with a themed Mozart dinner in the hotel's opulent ballroom, complete with a quartet in historical costumes playing all of the man himself's greatest operatic hits.

Pachtuv Palace

Why it made the list

This hotel's claim to musical fame is that the former owner, Count Pachta, once locked Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in one of its rooms and wouldn't let him out until the composer had finished several dance pieces that he had promised. A few hours later, Mozart emerged with his 6 German Dances, K.509, and laughingly asked if his sentence was served. Soak up that history in the hotel's Mozart suite, room 212.

Aria Hotel

Why it made the list

Possibly the only hotel in the world with a musical director, the Aria takes its tuneful theme seriously. There's also a music library for guests; every floor is dedicated to a musical genre, and every room to a musician, from Brahms to Elvis; and there are private rooms for performances, as well as regular live piano playing on a beautiful Bösendorfer instrument in the atrium.
