5 of the best boutique hotels Prague

U Raka House

Černínská 10
+420 220 511 100
hoteluraka.cz

Most people would expect to find a typical timbered country house like this one on the slopes of the Giant Mountains instead of near Prague Castle. This small romantic hotel has an enchanting private garden, a fireplace and a charming cafe so you always enjoy a warm welcome.

Botel Klotylda

Masarykovo nábřeží

+420 222 511 826

botelmatylda.cz

This stylish boat hotel is moored halfway between Prague’s two castles, with ancient Šítkovská Tower on one side and the modern Dancing House on the other. It has 25 rooms, a third of which are located on the neighbouring Matylda boat, which also has a restaurant on board.

Vila Lanna

V Sadech 1
+420 224 321 278
data.vila-lanna.ssc.avcr.cz

This neo-Renaissance landmark building is situated near the Royal Game Reserve and was the summer retreat of a prominent nouveau-riche. Very little has changed here since the end of the 19th century, except perhaps that it is now also a conference and wedding venue.

Miss Sophie's

Melounova 3

+420 246 032 620

miss-sophies.com

A modern, cosy hotel in a 19th-century Art Nouveau building. The perfect base for exploring New Town and Vinohrady. They have a kitchen for guests, but you might not need it as they serve a copious all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet.

Hotel Jalta

Václavské náměstí 45
+420 222 822 111
hoteljalta.com

A prime example of Socialist Realism. Hotel Jalta was where foreign news correspondents stayed during the Communist era and was infamous because its rooms were bugged by the secret police. The fallout shelter under the hotel now houses a Cold War Museum. Still a glamorous hotel in a very central location.
