Prague is one of those story book European cities. It is medieval yet romantic and well preserved. It’s just the type of city that you want to stroll through with the one you love. If you’re looking for the perfect place to begin that walk, than you need search no further than the Hotel Savoy. This hotel has the best address in Prague. It is located just steps from the PragueCastle and is in the heart of the city center.
The Savoy was originally built in 1911 in the Art Nouveau style. Immediately upon opening it became “the” place to stay near Prague castle. In 1914 the facility opened a cinema and attracted the attention of the cultural community. During communist rule the Savoy suffered and went into decline but in 1990 it was remodeled to become the hotel that I visited. This mixture of history and modern amenities makes it the perfect place for discerning travelers like Sean Connery and me.
Due to the age of the building each of the rooms has its own shape and size but all of them are very spacious. The standard rooms can range from 35 to 45 square meters. That’s big! All of the 55 rooms and 6 suites are decorated and furnished in a tasteful manner that is only improved upon by their amenities like: high speed internet and complimentary breakfast.
The Hradcany Restaurant is a must visit. The food is a mixture of Czech and International cuisine that is combined with an extensive and varied wine list.I thought the food was amazing until I was absolutely bowled over by their retractable glass dome and sinking windows. With one touch of a button their dining room went from a grand hall to an airy garden. good, it’s no wonder the Hotel Savoy is a member of the Leading Small Hotels of the World.
The Savoy’s motto is “A unique experience of charm and luxury” and though I was only here for a short while, I can tell you that they not only lived up to this, they surpassed it.
