Four Seasons Hotel Prague: Czech Elegance and Luxury

Four Seasons Hotel Prague: Czech Elegance and Luxury

CZECH REPUBLIC, EUROPE, HOTELS, LUXURY TRAVEL, PRAGUE

The Four Seasons Hotel Prague is ideally situated along the picturesque Vltava River and Old Town. It’s just a block away from the Charles Bridge, where ancient history and culture meet; a convenient location where you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

The Four Season Hotel Prague is composed of three unique buildings dating from the Neo-Renaissance, Neo-Classical and Baroque periods, reflecting the character and elegance of this historic location.

First Impression

The beauty and presentation of the fresh flowers in the lobby caught my attention the minute I walked into the lobby area of the Four Seasons Hotel Prague.

Accommodations 

The 157 rooms (including 19 suites) vary in size and style but all feature high-quality textiles and furnishings, generously sized marble bathrooms, TVs and working desks as standard.

We stayed in a Renaissance Room, which reflects the architectural style of the Renaissance Building. It was well sized for two people, with tasteful decor and a very comfortable King size bed.  It features high ceilings, and several large windows overlooking the surrounding buildings and streets.

The marble bathroom was spacious with twin wash basins,  a walk-in shower, and a deep bathtub separate from the shower.  I unfortunately forgot to bring a hair iron, but after phoning housekeeping one was immediately brought up to my room.

Some of the little details like fresh bottles of water daily, a selection of books to read, universal adapters to put in my computer, fresh food (as well as free wifi) really made our stay enjoyable.   The housekeeping staff must have been ghosts, because our room (and the entire hotel) was invariably spotless yet we never were disrupted by anyone cleaning or saw anyone in the hallway.

Dining Options

CottoCrudo which means “cooked and raw” is an Italian restaurant on the property and considered one of the best eateries in Prague. Italian dishes can be enjoyed raw at the Crudo Bar or cooked from the main menu.  The restaurant offers varous seating options and an adjacent bar as well as cosy banquettes, it is stylish enough to draw in people who are simply passing by.

CottoCrudo also has an outdoor patio area which is wonderful for lunch or just sitting and relaxing with a nice cocktail in the evening.

The buffet breakfast at CottoCrudo had a huge selection and seemed more like a feast/gala morning affair rather than a mere breakfast.   They offered so many different items that even the pickiest of eaters would be satisfied here, plus you could order off the menu to accompany the buffet.

In the summer months, you can enjoy a romantic dinner setting outdoors in The Terrance with spectacular views of the city and sunsets.

Spa/Fitness Center

The AVA Spa at the Four Seasons Prague features five treatment rooms, including a couple’s suite, spa bath, steam and sauna rooms, and a vitality pool with a variety of massage jets and the ultimate hydrotherapy in a relaxing European spa ambiance.

After eating all these delicious meals in Prague, you might want to work out at the fitness center which offers a variety of equipment, they even provide towels and water.

The hotel also offers a unique boat excursion where guest can ride in a traditional wooden boat that sits up to 12 people and see the city of Prague from a whole new angle.  The boat excursion is 50-minutes long, and they provide you with a glass of prosecco.

There are so many different charming aspects of Prague: the castles, the cathedral, the old town square, the churches, the architecture and even the general ambiance takes you back to the ancient ages, but don’t forget to stop by the iconic John Lennon Wall.  The hotel is also perfect for family vacations, with attractions like the Prague Zoo, Museum of Toys, and paddle-boating around Ostrov Island just around the corner.  I’m looking forward to returning to Prague soon, and staying at the Four Seasons.

      I couldn’t of asked for a better location, apart from the hotel being top notch. It’s walking distance to everything, and the Charles Bridge is just steps away.

      The book selection on the table was an extra treat for my husband who loves to read at night. The terrace had stunning views of the city.

    I love how this hotel provides the little touches, especially the adaptors. It really makes a difference in the hotel experience.

      I agree, most of the time we either forget our adaptors or don’t have the right ones with us. It was really a nice touch on their part to provide the adapters to the guest.

    I like the color themes they have chosen. I am not sure if I would like to leave the hotel for sightseeing. 😛 🙂
    The statues of the girl and the boy under the umbrella is too cute. 🙂

      The Four Seasons really knows how to make their guest feel extra special, that’s why I like staying with them when we can.

    Another great hotel pick! Would love to stay at the Four Seasons in Prague. For me, the most consistently great of the major luxury hotel brands. Just opened in a new property in my old neighborhood in downtown NYC, which looks quite opulent as well.

    Another beautiful location. Really love the inclusions of fresh food, adaptors and always love water. For some reason, our Australian hotels never give their guests water. Wonderful looking rooms and dining options too.

      The least a hotel can do for their guest is leave them a bottle of water in your hotel room daily.

    The opulence of of the place leaves me open-jawed. The boat ride idea is a nice touch with its own private jetty (I hope so) 🙂

    There are so many little things that you have mentioned which make this hotel the ideal place to stay. The flowers, water daily, books to read, universal adapters and most importantly free WiFi. I also love the outdoor patio at CottoCrudo and the beautiful view you get of Prague from The Terrance.

      I’ve never been disappointed in any of the Four Seasons hotels we have stayed in. This practically one was in the best location.

    As an hotelier, I can only say Four Seasons is a top notch brand. If I was staying here, I would probably not leave the spa. At all 🙂

      I didn’t have time to use the spa this time around, but my husband did. He said the sauna and pool were wonderful.

      If I was returning to Prague I wouldn’t stay anywhere else but the Four Seasons Prague. We had a wonderful stay.

    My husband and I stayed at the Four Seasons in October 2014 as the end segment of a River cruise. We loved its location and service. Had to leave super early the morning of our departure and the staff was extremely helpful. By the way, Prague is an magical place!

      The staff is very accommodating. I stopped by the front desk one morning and asked them where I could buy a flat iron for my hair. In 5 minutes I had one brought up to my room to use during my stay.

    What a gorgeous hotel! I love the different era buildings. The outdoor patios are always a favorite to me. I enjoy seeing the sights around me. It looks like there could never be a less than wonderful stay there. Thanks for sharing this great destination!

      Prague is one of those cities that it’s easy to get around by foot. The hotel is centrally located and walking distance to get about everything.
