TheCultureMom Hotel Review: Prague’s Paris Hotel

parishotel

On my recent visit to Prague, I stayed at the Paris Hotel. Uniquely decked out in Neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau decor, the hotel has a certain charm that took me back to a time long gone by, which I fully appreciated. It was right out of the 2011 film Midnight in Paris and i expected authors like Ernest Hemingway to walk in. From its high ceilings in the lobby to gold statues and sweeping staircases and chandeliers in the lobby, the hotel offers a very Parisian vibe.  The exterior is especially welcoming and beautiful, filling us with wonder upon arrival.

Here’s the lowdown on the Paris Hotel:

History: Hotel Paris, rated a 5-star hotel, has preserved its look of a First Republic, neo-Gothic building with bold elements of Art Nouveau for over a century, having opened in 1904. In 1991, the hotel returned to the Brandeis family, whose hotelier tradition has a 150-year history.

Location: We loved how walkable the hotel is. Located between Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square, the hotel is just beside the Municipal House and a few blocks from the Old Town Square. It’s a 15-minute walk from the Charles Bridge and an equally short walk to the Jewish Ghetto. There is also a plethora of restaurant options outside the hotel, and the neighborhood is just quaint and lovely for a visit to Prague. It was my mother’s first visit to the European city, so the Paris Hotel was the perfect choice.

Accommodations: The hotel offers 86 rooms and suites. We stayed in a deluxe room. Our rate included a buffet breakfast, free Wi-fi access, VAT and access to the hotel’s wellness and spa center. The room was comfortable, albeit a bit dark, offering a king-sized bed, original art nouveau furniture (seemingly original). Some Deluxe rooms have balconies with a view of the Municipal House and Prague city center; ours did not, but we had a great view of the Old Town. We had a desk, TV, armchairs, drapes, wool carpets and everything we needed to make our visit cozy and appealing

Amenities: Breakfast in Cafe’ de Paris was a lovely way to spend our mornings. The restaurant is glamorous with marble floors and its share of art nouveau decor and buffet breakfast offerings include of cooked and a slew of the cold foods. The French-themed Sarah Bernhardt Restaurant serves French and Czech cuisine, breakfast and dinner only. Live music is featured on weekend evenings.

Verdict: With a polite staff, excellent location, onsite dining, comfortable rooms, and most importantly, excellent value, I would recommend the Paris Hotel. Though I was traveling with my mother, I would also recommend it for a traveling family, based on what I know as a mom. Rooms are spacious and the hotel has cribs and services sure to make any parent happy.
