No one does it quite like the Four Seasons. Before I had even checked in to the Four Seasons Prague I had been enviously eyeing off their instagram photos in anticipation of my arrival. This contemporary luxury hotel in a timeless city offers guests the perfect blend of modernity and timelessness that just can’t be duplicated elsewhere in the city. It immediately became one of my favourite Four Seasons Hotels that I have had the pleasure of visiting, and here’s just a snapshot of what you can expect…
The Four Seasons Prague is located just a few short steps from the cities famous icon, The Charles Bridge. It is one of the closest hotels in terms of proximity, and it’s also on the bustling side of the bridge, just a five minute walk from the Old Town. The hotel’s restaurant Cottocrudo offers casual Italian dining, whilst the spa downstairs offers guests a lavish retreat from the city itself. Put all this together, and I think you have one of Prague’s most opulent hotels catering to an elite clientele who expect no less than the best.
Four Seasons Prague – The Experience
I checked in to the Four Seasons Prague three hours earlier than check in time (normally 3pm), and this was not only overlooked by the reception staff, but I was warmly welcomed with open arms. Forget what you’ve heard about Czech hospitality being a little behind Western standards, the staff at this hotel know all too well the importance of first impressions and making sure guests feel comfortable from the moment they arrive is just the beginning of the experience.
My bags were delivered to my room at the same time I was being shown around my room, but my mind was solely occupied by the captivating view of the Charles Bridge from my window. The only difficulty for me throughout my entire stay was finding the desire to actually want to leave my suite.
The room had all the trimmings I have come to expect from luxury five star properties in Europe, but it had a unique classic style that was not only timeless, but refreshing to return home to each day after I had wandered the nearby streets of Prague.
On my day of arrival there was a generous fruit platter awaiting me, but it was the following day when I had a selection of Czech pastries awaiting my return that I was reminded of the lengths the staff will go to at this Four Seasons Hotel to ensure guests have an experience they will remember for years to come, and be sure to turn their friends green with envy when talking about it.
THE ROOM (AND THAT VIEW)
If you’re going to stay at the Four Seasons Prague, I advise you go all out. Be sure to book a room with a view of Charles Bridge and if possible, put in a request for the highest available floor (my suite was located on the sixth).
As you step inside, the room is filled with sunlight, bringing an immediate warmth to the room. As with all Four Seasons properties, rooms are spacious and welcoming with all the signature touches I have come to expect from Four Seasons hotels. Take for instance the welcome fruit platter, welcome card from the General Manager, and only the finest interior décor you will come to find in hotels.
More or less, you will feel completely at home.
BOOK THIS HOTEL IF…
If you’re looking to be pampered in plush surrounds, the Four Seasons Prague is for you. It also has the most enviable location in the entire city – just a short stroll from all the main attractions but exclusive enough to provide you with an inner city escape when you’re looking to come home and unwind.
