Prague has a number of luxury hotels. But guests at Corinthia Hotel Prague can relish spectacular panoramic views of the city from the hotel's setting atop one of Prague’s seven hills. 

Corinthia Hotel Prague is a modern hotel with uncluttered, airy rooms. On its penthouse floor are aspa and a pool with scenic views (seen above).

Clientele of Corinthia Hotel Prague

The hotel attracts many business travelers. It is located next to the Prague Congress (convention) Center and has outstanding meeting and event rooms such as Bellevue, with mesmerizing 360º vistas of Prague.

But leisure travelers from all over, including many families, also make Corinthia their Prague nest. The hotel's busiest season is late spring and summer, when Prague's famous festivals draw fun-seekers. Some visit the hotel's Kings Casino.

Location of Corinthia Hotel Prague

The hotel is very well situated in the Vysehrad section of Prague.

 A ten-minute walk brings you to:
• Vysehrad Castle, dating from the 10th century
• The leafy National Cemetery, the final resting place of Czech notables like Art Nouveau painter Alfonse Mucha, composers Antonin Dvorak (who also lived and taught in the US) and Bedrich Smetana, whose composition was adapted to become Israel’s national anthem, Ha Tikvah
• The neo-Gothic Church of St.

Peter and St. Paul

It's Easy to Get to Places from Corinthia Hotel Prague

Two Metro stops away (or a 20-minute stroll) is Wenceslas Square, Prague's historic central square, alive with cafés, museums, and shops. Three Metro stops away is the Art Nouveau Jubilee Synagogue.

Let me add: I enjoyed taking Prague’s modern Metro underground system. It's one of the best mass-transits around: fast, air-conditioned, well marked, and graffiti-free.

Corinthia Hotel Prague Rooms and Suites

Built in 1988, Corinthia Hotel Prague is a modern, uncluttered hotel. It is large, with 539 rooms, all non-smoking.

The hotel's expansive lobby is soothingly furnished in soft earth tones with touches of gold and burgundy. Numerous large couches (and free wifi) invite guests to lounge.

All guest rooms and suites are comfortable and well configured, with modest wood furniture and earth-toned carpets. Rooms are not opulent or flashy; I found them sleek and soothing. All rooms feature:
• A view of Prague
• Free wifi
• Minibar, coffeemaker, safe
• High-end ESPA bath products
• Complimentary bottled water (in Executive rooms and Suites)
• On the downside, rooms lack iPod docks or other music player

The hotel's better accommodations are Executive Rooms, Business Rooms, and suites.

  I recommend staying in Executive Level (or higher) rooms. Here's why...

Corinthia Hotel Prague's Club Floor

The Executive Lounge is the hotel's club floor, open to guests in Executive and higher rooms.
• The Executive Lounge is graciously designed with lounging area, numerous semi-private nooks, and a business center
• The Lounge serves an abundance of enticing snacks, coffee/tea, soft drinks, and an evening happy hour, all complimentary
• Breakfast is a Lounge highlight. Luxurious buffet choices include smoked salmon, patés, and cheeses. A health corner offers fruit, yogurt, and whole-grain cereals. Or you can order a custom omelet
• See why a club-floor upgrade may be worth it to you
