Four Seasons Hotel - Prague, Czech Republic - Luxury Hotel Review

Gorgeous Setting in Prauge


Four Seasons Hotel - Prague, Czech Republic: Located in the heart of the Prague Old Town, Four Seasons Prague features three historic buildings including the Classical, the Renaissance, and the Baroque building. All three, united by the Main Modern Building, create a unique and stunning architecture. Indeed, you can’t ask for a better location than where this world-renowned five-star hotel chain is situated, as it overlooks the Charles Bridge and the Prague Castle on the banks of the Vlatva.

First Impression/Lobby: The Canadian Four Seasons group has always set the standard for true world-class five-star hotel luxury, and rarely have I been disappointed by a Four Seasons hotel. As such, I knew what to expect when I arrived at the Four Seasons Prague. The moment we pulled up at the entrance, we were warmly greeted and assisted by the staff and immediately, I knew we were in good hands.

Inside, the lobby was magnificent with its elaborate flower arrangements, elegant carpets, and glorious lighting. Carefully chosen artworks by local artists are also displayed in the lobby, reception and lounge area. The opulence was balanced out by the interior’s predominantly beige and cream tones, making the ambiance relaxed but still posh without being too over-the-top.

Reception: Our check in was quick and easy, and as the norm with most Four Seasons Hotels, flawless! Within minutes we were being shown to our suite, #701.

The Suite: Our suite was the Premier Suite, #701. Other than the stunning views of the river and of Prague, the suite, which was huge, was a little bland for a luxury hotel of this caliber. The interiors felt more corporate than luxurious and had nothing special to identify it with Prague or Czech culture. The furniture was basic, including armchairs, ottomans, a writing desk, and an armoire, which were apparently sourced in Italy. The custom-made and legendary Four Seasons bed is still the best part of the room, which is both firm and soft and a heaven to sleep in.

The bathroom is made of marble, porcelain and chrome. It was fitted with a deep bath tub, a walk-in shower, and a separate toilet. Bath products are first-class hotel luxury, in our case, Bulgari bath products.

Room Service: True to Four Seasons’ standards, Room Service did a marvelous job. Whether it was the presentation at breakfast or a late meal snack, the food was always perfectly prepared and served with class and style. The Room Service menu was typical of a luxury hotel and their prices matched the sky high prices of the guest rooms.

Housekeeping: Their housekeeping was close to flawless. My only complaint, however, is that they do not leave water at turn-down service.

Concierge: We had gotten dining recommendations from the Concierge for lunch and dinner. The lunch recommendation, Barock, was excellent. Her dinner recommendation, Kampa Park, was much too touristy and had lousy food and service. The list of other restaurant suggestions provided by the hotel (many of which we tried) left off one of the best restaurants in Prague: La Degustation. Why they would leave such a great restaurant off their list is bewildering, that is unless they are compensated for sending guests to certain restaurants. Either way, I was less than impressed with the concierge’s recommendations.

Restaurant: The hotel’s main restaurant, Allegro, is a casual dining restaurant that serves gourmet Italian cuisine. They offer some of the best views in the hotel, particularly of the river and Prague Castle. Dinner costs from €50 (£35) per head including wine.

Pool/Spa/Activities: There is nothing much to do in the hotel in terms of in-house recreational activities. There is a health club that features a spa and fitness center as well as separate saunas for men and women.

Overall Impression The location, the view, and the service all make the Four Seasons Prague a very safe bet. What they lack in the room interiors is made up for in the hotel’s over-all class and elegance. My biggest complaint with the Four Seasons Prague was the concierge recommendations but overall the Four Seasons Prague gets a rating of Bombastic.
