Map & Directions

The hotel is 30 minutes by taxi from Prague Airport. The journey by public transport is cheaper but longer -- take the Airport Express Bus (5:45am-10:30pm, every half hour) to the main train station (Hlavní Nádraží), which is 15 minutes' walk from the hotel. Valet service for covered parking is available for those arriving by car (charges apply).

The Barceló Old Town hotel's location simply can't be beat -- it's five minutes on foot to Prague's sightseeing center, and you can even glimpse the gothic Powder Tower from the balcony. Although the Astronomical Clock, Charles Bridge and Wenceslas Square are all within walking distance, the hotel is far enough away to avoid the city noise.

The hotel's big-brand Barceló name belies the boutique atmosphere inside, and just like the surrounding area, the building oozes with history. It dates back to the 17th century and was once an inn known as U Zlateho Andela (At the Golden Angel) where Mozart is reputed to have stayed. The gilded angel (added in the 1800s) still hovers above the entrance, but inside rooms have been given a radical update. The loft-like reception in the old courtyard has a glass-paneled ceiling, and downstairs there's a modern bar.

The smart bistro on the ground floor serves a mix of local and classic dishes. In the mornings, fill up on a range of continental breakfast items or go for something hot -- there's an omelette station for eggs cooked to order. Guests can also use the computers in the lobby for free, and complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.

The historic character of the building has been retained, with exposed beams, honey-colored parquet floors and high ceilings in the bedrooms. The Junior Suites are a good choice for extra room (some face the main street while the bigger ones have side views). Suites are larger still, with almost twice as much space and a separate living room with a dining table.
