Set against a backdrop of gleaming spires, Mandarin Oriental, Prague is a five-star hotel in the heart of the Czech capital. This is an exquisite retreat in the quiet, cobbled streets of Lesser Town, in Prague’s historical centre.

Built on the site of a 14th-century monastery, its contemporary design blends seamlessly with the period architectural features. Mandarin Oriental, Prague offers 99 spacious and elegantly appointed guest rooms, including 20 suites, each individually designed to enhance the appeal of its unique layout and original historical features.
By adding beautiful modern touches to the venerable bones of this former monastery, the interior design represents a harmonious balance of cultures, reflecting both the city’s past and present, and Mandarin Oriental’s Asian roots.

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Prague has won multiple awards and is one of the most unusual spas in the world. Housed in a former chapel, it incorporates unique features such as the illuminated foundations of a former 14th-century church, displayed below the glass floor of the lobby. Bespoke treatments comprise a wide range of relaxing body and facial therapies, incuding The Haute Couture Facial by Linda Meredith.

Elsewhere, Spices Restaurant & Bar offers an inventive selection of delicious Asian dishes and signature cocktails. With a setting as inspiring as the menu, Spices’ Renaissance-style vaulted ceiling and modern design provides the perfect backdrop for executive chef Stephen Senewiratne’s exceptional cuisine. Spices is the rising star of Prague’s restaurant scene, a perenial fixture in the Michelin Guide.

Located just a stone’s throw from the city’s major sights and museums, squares, palaces and gardens, the Mandarin Oriental, Prague is unrivalled in its location. The fairytale Charles Bridge is right on the hotel’s doorstep and is the gateway to the medieval Old Town, a maze of cobbled streets that leads to the famed Old Town Square. Across the Vltava River is Prague Castle, which sits on a crag above a host of gothic steeples. It’s here, more than anywhere else, that Prague lives up to its nickname as the ‘Golden City of One Hundred Spires’.
