"The city's coolest and most laid-back design hotel" -- The Guardian

Map & Directions

The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the main train station (Hlavní Nádraží), which is 35 minutes from Prague Airport by Airport Express bus (5:45am-10:30pm, every 30 minutes). By taxi it's slightly quicker (30 minutes, longer at peak times), but it will be more costly. Those arriving by car can park at the nearby public garage (charges apply).

The Guardian calls The ICON Hotel & Lounge "the city's coolest and most laid-back design hotel", and the property has been impressing with its ultra-modern interior design and central location since it opened in 2007.

Wenceslas Square and the best of the city's nightlife are just one block away, and the art nouveau Municipal House and the Astronomical Clock in Old Town Square (visit on the hour for the theatricals) are both a 15-minute walk.

This is an intimate property and the 31 rooms are cosy but packed with high-tech extras, including biometric safes that unlock with a fingerprint, iPod connections, and LCD TVs with DVD player. In addition, there are the usual suspects: free Wi-Fi, a mini bar and coffee- and tea-making facilities. All rooms have handmade beds from Hästens, a famous Swedish luxury bed company that is purveyor of beds to the Swedish royal court. 

ROOM, the hotel's tapas restaurant, puts a fresh spin on old Spanish favourites and the hip lounge bar is popular with locals. In the morning, there's no chance of missing breakfast, whatever time you emerge -- the buffet is served until 11am or guests can order à la carte American pancakes and omelettes until 11pm.

Down in the basement there's a small spa offering massages and face masks, and a tiny room hung with religious paintings (a reminder of the building's past life as a church). The property is still owned by the Greek Orthodox Church, which continues to hold its annual conventions here.

From the press:

  • "Staff clothes by Diesel, computers by Apple, beds by Hästens -- pretty much everything in this gorgeous boutique hotel has a designer stamp on it" -- Lonely Planet

  • "Modern, minimalist and funky" -- The Daily Telegraph

  • "Despite the high-tech gadgets, the hotel maintains a calm residential feel, and its tastefully minimalist decor, comfortable beds with hypoallergenic linens, professional staff, and moderate prices make it an excellent value" -- Condé Nast Traveler
