When visiting any new city, accommodation requirerments vary for todays modern travelers. Some find a central location necessary, while others find luxury and service the most important criteria when booking a hotel. Visitors to Prague need not sacrifice on any of these options, as the Four Seasons Prague delivers at all levels.  

Stepping off the bustling streets of Old Town in Prague, we’re greeted warmly before we even walk in the front door. The doormen at the Four Seasons Prague are seasoned professionals, requesting to assist with our bags, and inquiring about our time in the city so far.  As we pass the glorious scent of the many flowers which decorate the sophisticated lobby, at check-in, the feeling of warm professionalism extends.  We’re quickly confirmed, and then personally shown to our room - a Renaissance Room, one of the top categories, and well worth the additional spend. The high ceilings, extra space, and no less than three chandeliers are beautiful.  While we admire the elegant fixtures and view of the busy streetscape below, we explore the remainder of the room.  Finding luxe Sodeshi toiletries in the bathroom, I’m impressed, and will definitely have a well-earned soak in the tub after our exploration of Prague. As one would expect, the fully stocked mini-bar, a touching welcome amenity with ties to locally born Alphonse Mucha, and other appointments -- including a USB charging outlet with multiple fixtures near the bed -- are comforting. Our suggestion is to book a river view room for the full experience of your stay.

The Four Seasons Prague works well with expectations of the brand, and there is understated luxury throughout the hotel. In addition to 24-hour room service, CottoCrudo restaurant and bar is open throughout the day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.   With views overlooking the iconic Vltava River During our summer visit, there are not one, but two pop-ups present, taking advantage of the milder weather. There is the high-end seasonal restaurant, the ultra-exclusive Asian influenced Miru, and the alfresco stylings of Piazzetta.  For the cooler months, guests can also take advantage of the Lobby Bar for coffee or something sweet. Weather permitting, we recommend dining outside in the morning or ending the day with an apperitivio for sundowners.

After a long day of walking around the city, we enjoy a soothing soak in the vitality pool, before lounging in the soft and restful chairs.  Due to jet lag, we’re also happy with the small, if well-appointed modern gym, located in the basement. Near the pool, the AVA spa is a relaxed, beautiful space with several treatment rooms, and items available for purchase -- there’s also room for couples therapies.  As part of the spa menu, there are Czech inspired bath treatments and other signature rituals.  Facial treatments utilize high-end brands, including Swiss Perfection, Sodashi, and Omorovicza cosmetic lines. Guests can also avail themselves of the sauna and steam room.

With sweeping views of the Vltava River and steps from the historic Charles Bridge, guests are well-placed to explore the city for as many days as their visit allow.  We wouldn’t hesitate to stay at the Four Seasons Prague again.
