6 Castle Hotels in Prague and the Czech Republic

Royal Hospitality at Palaces and Chateaus

What can make your Prague or Czech Republic vacation even more special? A weekend at an ancient palace or castle, of course. The palaces and castles of Eastern Europe make particularly good modern hotels and are very popular with tourists, for good reason. Romance, history and luxury are trademarks of castle and palace hotels in Prague, in the Czech Republic and throughout Eastern and Central Europe. Czech castles are incredible in their own right; as hotels, they'll make your stay uniquely romantic.
