The Design Hotel Josef is a trendy, modern hotel with a striking glass façade, six minutes' walk from the historic Old Town Square and its famous astronomical clock, and near shopping, restaurants, sightseeing and public transport (the Náměsti Republiky Metro is four minutes' walk away).
For a fascinating take on some of the city's history and architecture, visit the old Jewish Quarter (or "Jozefov"). The Jewish Quarter dates back to the 10th century and is within a 5-minute walk of the hotel. There you can see the Moorish Revival-style Spanish Synagogue, built in 1868 and now part of the Jewish Museum of Prague; the Jerusalem Synagogue, which features a Moorish Revival design with Art Nouveau influences and Islamic arches; and the Franz Kafka monument.
The sophisticated minimalist rooms feature rainfall showers, flat-screen TVs and CD/DVD players, mini bars and free Wi-Fi, and have views over the street or inner courtyard. Lounger Sofa Rooms have additional space with sofas; 7th- and 8th-floor suites include private limestone or glass bathrooms, and feature balconies with rooftop views over the city. In-room yoga mats and fitness sets are available from reception.
The breakfast buffet is served in the courtyard garden or in the chic restaurant, which features floor-to-ceiling windows. Other amenities include a fitness room and a sauna, a bakery and a trendy on-site bar. The nearby Planet Zen Massage Studio offers Thai and Balinese spa and massage treatments for a fee.
