The 2015 Traveller's Choice Award-winning Mamaison Suite Hotel Pachtuv Palace Prague is an elegant 5-star hotel in a 17th-century palace in Prague's Old Town, overlooking the River Vltava and next to the Charles Bridge. The palace is filled with antiques and features courtyards studded with playful, modern sculptures.
